"You come here illegally, you have no gripe, safety or no safety."

What a patently indefensible statement. Every worker is entitled to safe working conditions, regardless. And every employer is obligated to provide them, regardless. You don't get to be socially irresponsible simply because a worker does not have documentation.

As for undocumented workers, I don't mind people complaining about them so long as they don't do so with their mouths full of the food the workers made possible at such cheap prices. I also don't mind people complaining about them crossing the border to find work so long as they are willing to look at the effects treaties like NAFTA and CAFTA have had on their own countries. When you undersell foreign farmers by flooding their markets with cheap, US subsidized agricultural products, you shouldn't be surprised that they do anything they can to insure their families get fed.

As for poor old Rolando, "I've got mine, screw you" is a somewhat common but not terribly respectable approach.
