"NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Much of New Orleans lies abandoned and destroyed after Hurricane Katrina struck nearly four months ago, but for Latin American immigrants the storm-ravaged city has become a land of opportunity.
While New Orleans residents are slow to return, the immigrants, most of them illegally in the United States, have swarmed in to do the hard work of cleaning up and rebuilding that others so far have shunned. (This sounds familiar doesn't it? The narrative of black "laziness," [Isn't this what Vincente Fox articulated when he said that Mexican immigrants do the work that even "the blacks" won't do], black expectations of a handout, the erasure of black labor. Oh, and note the use of the word swarmed.)
They are not here because of altruism -- New Orleans is just another place in a strange land to them -- but because there is a huge unfulfilled demand for labor and, as a result, high wages they cannot get in their homeland or in other U.S. cities. (What about those (who shunned the work) who are prohibited from returning home?) (more)
Inhuman humans, always.
