    I work in a new Building, City Gov. in a Computer room. Building is not finished and thus construction folks are in the Building- (Goverment Contract)

    This morning I escorted an IBM Tech out of the Building, we were working on servers, and upon return to elivator I get on with two Mexican Workers, canot speak or understand english and they Noticed I had a security Radio on me (we carry them while at work because it is a class 1 data center; police, fire, city, judical servers and data in the center) One of them pointed backed up and in broken english said- ("You Policia?")

    Obviously he was suprised by me and unsure. probly illegal, his friend had same reaction. They were Older men, mild manered and seemingly decent and dosile.

    that asside they were illegal. and the Building is Goverment, the Builder under Gov. contract? Their badges were of the Contractor as well as their Hard hats.

    Judging from their age they probly have family and kids possibly Grand kids here. So...

    Do I turn them in (the badge numbers or pass?) chek the Green card or not? Do I affect the lives of possibly innocent Kids living with them. Do I realy turn a life upside down?

    I have been Hubbing pro America all the way, now... But at age 60 who or what am I really affecting here? Do I really dis-rupt them for trying to have a life? Serious non-emotional reflection here, does kindness count, or rules?

    Humane or by the rules? I never expected to have a reaction like this, I always thought I could just say send em back... to hell with them; but what does this decision really do?

    unexpected delema?...  I just do not know anymore? Is this mess really worth it? I dont know...This is making me reflect-in fact; Its made me reflect all day about this.

      The biggest problem with illegals is this, it would be far simpler , cheaper and more profitable if the owner of the contracting company were arrested, drop the dime on the owner of the company, this is where our country drops the ball.........

      the problem is not the illegals. the problem is however, the employers of the illegals. the right wing screams "turn them in" but it is the right wing that hires them to work in their companies. they sent the jobs overseas so that they could change their weekly payroll from 100,000 to 8,000. they eliminated the jobs of the american worker and then hire the illegals to work for even less. yard mowing , house cleaning , painting , roofing etc. those guys are working for 1/3rd the rate or less while the right pockets the money and makes illegals and healthcare appear as if it will break the country. it's all a rightwing ruse. don't be fooled!also because they don't speak english doesn't mean that they are illegal.don't let the hype monsters fool you(hannity,limbaugh,coulter and fox news just to name a few)fool you. they lie!

      if you tell on them not one thing will happen . . . to anybody, but if you vote you can make a difference! good hub!

    Totally turn them in, and if you can, report the company, as well.  The company needs to be held accountable for their illegal hiring practices.
