It is shocking that a person would sign off on sub-par concrete for a bridge as large as the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, but more disgusting is the fact that he was in America illegally. He was an illegal alien who worked for the Pennsylvania-based Frederick Precast Concrete, Inc. who by the way, should be ruined and no longer allowed to bid on State or Federal contracts. I can now see how it is that when you see a bid for 100 billion suddenly rise to 500 billion it is due to illegals working for these companies. This is serious business, because of the racist rules that require construction companies to use minority owned or women owned companies to be able to complete their bids on materials and inspections to even be considered by a State or Federal agency.
You won’t see this story in the so called media wing of the Democrat Party even though a large portion of them, and their beloved Obama, would have ventured over that sub-par bridge, that could have eventually crumbled into the Potomac River below The Woodrow Wilson Bridge Is A Main Artery From Virginia To Maryland And If It Crumbled Mass Deaths Would Occur
A Maryland construction manager was fined more than $131,000 and sentenced to a year of home detention in connection to a case of providing subpar concrete for the building of Woodrow Wilson Bridge and another massive federally funded project.
Santos Eliazar Rivas was sentenced last week to 12 months of home detention and 24 months of probation in Baltimore’s U.S. District Court, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation Inspector General’s Office. As an undocumented immigrant, he is expected to be deported at the end of his sentence.
The sentence was far less than he could have gotten, though. Rivas pleaded guilty in September to three counts of making false statements about the highway project materials. Under the plea deal, he could have served as much five years behind bars and paid up to $250,000, court documents show.
“Under the circumstances, we are grateful that the judge made the decision he did,” his attorney David Irwin said in a statement Tuesday. “It was real justice in a difficult situation.”
Rivas had been the director of quality control for Pennsylvania-based Frederick Precast Concrete, Inc., which produced precast concrete drainage structures for building projects such as the Wilson Bridge project and Interstate 70 near Baltimore.
There is a reason to have American employees working on the infrastructure of our Country, they hopefully would tend to care more about the lives of their fellow Americans crossing the bridge they are creating. This also needs to be addressed by the Republican House – stop this insane requirement of minority and women owned companies having to be the recipient of Federal and State contracts. People may not realize it, but this is Affirmative Action through and through and continues to encourage not only corruption, but subpar work.
