For the second day in a row, on Thursday protesters gathered at an Anderson construction site, demonstrating against what they claim are illegal workers.・・・・
When the protesters gathered on Wednesday, many of the masonry workers left the job site.
"If they had nothing to hide, they should have stuck around," protester Chad Summerall said. "You can see they have plenty of brick to lay."
A spokesman from Gov. Mark Sanford's office said that there is no funding designated for enforcement of the law.
Anderson city leaders say because of that, they have to rely on the word of those supervising the worksite.
"They just gave us a written verification in the form of e-mail that it has been verified," Abraham said.
