Mr. Solis has been living illegally in the US for 30 years. He sends money home to his family in Mexico. These men provide cheap labor in construction and other manual labor. The men come every day and sometimes wait all day without getting hired. The Obama administration is proposing a new amnesty program for illegal immigrants already in the country.
