Lying contractor to be deported

DEPORT DUE IN TRAGEDY AT WORK SITE
By DAVID SEIFMAN, NY Post

A contractor whose employee fell to his death at a Manhattan construction site is in the country illegally, authorities said yesterday.

Adal Melek Afzal, the owner of a paint company who allegedly tried to pose as a licensed special rigger, is a Pakistani national who now faces deportation, according to the Department of Investigation.

In September, Miguel Rodriguez fell more than three stories to his death at a construction site on 111th Street near Eighth Avenue, where Afzal's company was hired to patch a fa├žade, when he tried to lower the scaffolding on which he was standing.

Afzal was later busted under the alias "Malik Hussain" for allegedly giving a foreman's card to an uncertified worker, who then passed himself off as the certified scaffold-rigging foreman at the site.

Good riddance Afzal. Break one law, your probably broke a multitude of laws - even manslaughter just so you could make a buck.

Can you believe this? This illegal alien has the means to have his own contractor business going, yet the average American can't achieve this goal. Something is very very wrong here. Deport all of them. Our economy is in shambles, yet we have to spend our tax dollars to take care of people who do not even belong here. You wouldn't get this kind of service in Mexico.

Hell, if you ran a cash business and did not pay taxes you too can start a business and thrive.
