Span spin spun

If a bridge falls in Minesota, can you blame illegal aliens?

Maybe not completely, but Michael Newsom of the Biloxi (MS) Sun- Herald does a pretty good job of it.

The owner of Tarrasco Steel, a company that supplied workers on the Biloxi Bay Bridge, was arrested and charged with hiring illegal immigrants on projects in three states. Some had improper welding certification.

“There is a serious public safety concern when illegal aliens, who are not authorized to work in the country legally, and who do not possess valid welding certifications, are employed in the construction of bridges in our communities,” said Michael A. Holt, special agent in charge of the Customs Office of Investigations in New Orleans, in a news release.

Uhhhh… does this mean uncertified wielders who are citizens don’t endanger public safety?
