News 7 says that a striker was hit by a trash truck driven by a temporary worker and in turn the other strikers attacked the temporary driver/worker.

First of all, the company should be fined heavily if they didn't make all their employees fill out an I9 form before they were hired. Second, the Laborers union should get their heads out of their butts and stop supporting these illegal aliens. And third, these illegals can't be more out in the open than they are so why aren't they arrested, detained, deported or anything that would indicate that we aren't afraid to enforce our own laws? If we refuse to enforce our own laws what the hell good is it to make new laws? Hell we even have illegal aliens testifying in front of congress and we do nothing. We have illegal aliens assaulting peaceful anti illegal alien protesters and nothing is done. Enforce our damn immigration laws.
