• Is This Not An Awesome Statement From A Trump Construction Worker Being Baited By The Press?

    The Trump-bashing mainstream news media took a major blow yesterday when CNN cameras showed up on the scene of a future Trump building construction site.

    There have been reports that dozens of construction workers who came to the U.S. illegally from Latin America have found jobs working on the Old Post Office Pavilion in downtown Washington–a building that will become a brand new Trump International Hotel.

    So in search of a hit job headline, CNN sent its camera crews to the construction site in search of a money quote from one or more of the illegal immigrant workers. They didn’t get what they wanted, however.

    “I don’t give a f*ck about it,” said one black contraction worker. “You know, I’m just out here to make some money. That’s it.”

    CNN also reported that one of the project managers said he didn’t know of anyone who was working there while living in the country illegally.

    The Washington Post, however, did manage to get some quotes from some illegal immigrants working to restore or build Trump buildings:

    “It’s something ironic,” said Ivan Arellano, 29, who is from Mexico and obtained legal status through marriage. He now works as a mason laying the stonework for the lobby floor and walls of what will become the Trump International Hotel.

    “The majority of us are Hispanics, many who came illegally,” Arellano said in Spanish. “And we’re all here working very hard to build a better life for our families.”

    Interviews with about 15 laborers helping renovate the Old Post Office Pavilion revealed that many of them had crossed the U.S-Mexico border illegally before they eventually settled in the Washington region to build new lives.

    I say call ICE on them all!
