The Fayetville Observer recently ran a story about a homeless veteran, 49-year-old Mitchell Shird. The man who was born to sharecroppers in rural Florence County, S.C., began working as a brick mason after leaving the Air Force in the 1980’s.
From 1987 to about 1995, Shird ran his own business, Miracle Masonry, in Pamplico, S.C., at one time employing a staff of 17 masons and grossing $6,000 to $10,000.
The veteran now lives in an abandoned house, with a mattress, a microwave, and a few books representing all of his possessions.
Shird told the Observer: “After the Air Force. I started laying brick. I engineer brick. I can brick anything.”
Shird tells how after more than a quarter century in construction, he cannot get a job because illegal aliens have taken over that industry.
Shird said: “Those are hard-working people. They'll work from sunup to sundown. I have nothing against their craftsmanship. But, they're illegals. This is it. This is where it is. This is America.”
He continued: “I've gone from $10,000 a week to four jobs a year.”
“Where is America? This is not the America I grew up in. America changed; I didn't change.”
Despite the upsurge in construction projects in and around Fayetville and on Fort Bragg, precious few of those jobs are going to citizens. They are instead being done far too often, by illegal aliens.
Of course, this is not a problem isolated to one region of the country.
According to a 2007 Fiscal Policy Institute study, illegal aliens account for 32 percent of New York City’s construction workforce.
Remember, for every illegal alien with a job, there is an American without one.

The Socialists told us long ago that since they could not beat us with force, that they would destroy us slowly from within. So far it is working pretty well. MOLON LABE check...
