N.C. Roads: Brought to You by Illegal Immigration

According to this report, a large chunk of the $1 billion the NCDOT spends every year to build roads in North Carolina is paid to workers with falsified social security numbers, presumably because they are illegal.

There are so many issues with this that I have not been able to wrap my head around a coherent post. But generally, this proves the value of immigration to our society (we need roads, right), but it also shows that the immigration is artificially keeping the costs of roads down. Also, these could be high paying construction jobs, not the jobs typically thought to belong to illegals. Hopefully, our readers can help me decide where to go with this.


Good article

Worth reading . . . with interesting insights into how things really work on the ground.

I thought that

the free market was supposed to work all this stuff out anyway. How's that going?
