Contract Is Held Up: Supervisors Object to Alien Workers on Eloise Job

Detroit Free Press, July 29, 1931
This sounds awfully familiar. No aliens were allowed to build at Eloise back in 1931 and we're not talking martians. Since the prosecutor deemed it illegal to work the clause into the contract it's likely that non-Americans were eventually employed in the construction projects. Of course, at that time the illegals were most likely Italian and Irish but alien residents nonetheless.
