It’s almost as if Trump’s being led around by the nose on policy by a White House advisor whose mentor was a self-described Nazi.

Many fine people.

Nope. Not even. Many of those businesses that got raided in Mississippi are of a type that won’t hire Americans. It’ll cost more than they want to pay minimum wage. They’ll just automate. They’ll take a little dip on the up front costs, but they can write that off.

Note the investigative work I saw on Chris Hayes---A many year study of Trump "undocumented" workers from Guatemala and/or El Salvador at the golf courses and elsewhere...Fraudulent docs that Trump supervisors knew were fraudulent. These employees were (of course) paid far less than legit Hispanic employees.

Could the hypocrisy and evil be more front row?? UFB. Can't make it up unfortunately.

Btw, reporting was done by Farenthold

Trump Tower was built with ~200 undocumented Polish laborers who were not given proper safety gear or even hardhats in many cases. Unsurprisingly, their safety record was horrible. He also forced them to work 12 hour shifts at "starvation wages" and regularly stiffed them out of their pay.

Also, word on the street is when the ironworkers found out about it, Trump used the Italian mafia to scare them off so the non-union undocumented workers could continue on the project.

Basically, the guy's always been a piece of shit.

Why aren't the companies hiring the undocumented workers being punished? If there aren't any jobs then a lot less would be making the trek here.

Why aren't corporations and rich folks punished when they break the law the way ordinary people are?

I think you know the answer.

He was on suicide watch yet died from hanging. Very irresponsible, I guess it saves tax payer money but I would rather see these people convicted
