Italians given jobs to build bridge in Texas

In Dallas, Texas, where one out of every eight construction workers is unemployed, a group of 11 Italian welders and helpers have been brought in to erect a bridge being paid for by city, state and federal funds. Visa rules allow the importation of highly specialized workers when their skills cannot be matched by Americans, but given that the Italian crews welded the wrong ends of two sections of the bridge together, some are questioning the legitimacy of the arrangement.
