Of course Mr. Williams is right in all he says. Now try to convince Sharpton or J Jackson. Or try to convince the broad minority population. They're just soooo sure whites are to blame for their problems! It's all so discouraging. Mr. Williams is right and he has a very hard job to convince the minority population to change its attitudes and behaviors. It's so unfair!
In spite of his great military record, Sen McCain has NOT been good on a number of issues, and especially immigration. McCain has always pushed high easy immigration both legal and illegal in any way he could. Does it make sense to have high immigration when we have such employment an wage stagnation? But even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And the insist their ONLY solution is more foreign workers. And it's a coincidence H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Immigration today is soooo much about cheap labor. Sen Amnesty McCain needs to go for the good of the country!
There are many reasons we should be reducing both legal and illegal immigration. Terrorism is certainly one. When you consider employment, education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, use of govt services etc, immigration these days is truly an expensive loser to everyone but employers and the immigrants themselves. But our employers and elite sooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP. The GOP is shooting itself and the country if it supports "comprehensive immigration reform". We're sooo gonna regret it if anything like CIR passes (except employers and the immigrants).

Our CEO class has shown it's often in it for themselves more than the country. In their zeal for profits the first goal is to send everything to a low wage country. If that doesn't work the next step is to bring the cheap labor here through easy immigration. Hence even today corps often insist there is a labor and skills shortage. And then they insist the ONLY solution is more H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc (forget about training US workers). And it's a coincidence these desperately needed workers come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). If comprehensive immigration reform passes we're all gonna greatly regret it (except employers and our elite). Unemployment, wage stagnation etc. will get sooo much worse. Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP. Even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that.

So at a time of high unemployment and wage stagnation many people think we should be giving what jobs we do have to foreign workers? Brilliant! After all the foreigners are soooo good that they actually create jobs for us. And it's just a coincidence H-1B, L-1, OPT, J-1 etc. have always come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). It's some labor and skills shortage we have where such critical workers can only be found in low wage countries huh? Face it, immigration today is often just about cheap indentured labor. As such it's great for employers but terrible for everyone else. When you consider employment, education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues etc. how can you come to any other conclusion? Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that.
Please DON'T RUN! Mr. Bush, with your unbelievable poor immigration stance you're NOT the kind of guy we should elect at this time! How can our elite be so dense? Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the entire country except employers and our elite. For them easy high immigration is cheap labor and servants. But it's absolutely terrible for everyone else. Does it make sense to increase the number competing for US jobs when we have such employment problems? But our elite have convinced themselves there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. Talk about self serving selfish beliefs! Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP. So high immigration greatly hurts both the country and the GOP. Even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't get very many Hispanic votes.

So at a time of high unemployment and wage stagnation many people including Ryan think we should increase the number competing for US jobs? Wow! After all even today many employers insist we have a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And they insist their ONLY solution is foreign workers (forget about training US workers). And it's also a coincidence H-1B, J-1, J-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). Face it, immigration today is largely about CHEAP LABOR. It's great for employers but terrible for everyone else. Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP. Even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. The GOP is shooting itself as well as the country with high immigration policies.

Don't forget another way the GOP can shoot itself: Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Recent immigrants rarely vote GOP. Even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. But our elite of both parties soooo love their cheap labor and servants they're trying to push this nonsense. Does it make sense to increase the number competing for US jobs at a time of high unemployment? But our employers even today often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. Bunk! Immigration today is mostly about cheap labor. Don't forget H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries. That's NO accident. We're sooo gonna regret it if CIR passes. Ugh!
The big mistake Repubs can make is to support "comprehensive immigration reform". Now there's a policy which will hurt the entire country (except employers) at the same time it greatly helps Democrats. Very few recent immigrants vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. But both parties seem utterly determined to grant amnesty and immigration expansion. Why? Because donors and our elite love it. For them high immigration is cheap labor and servants. And does it make any sense to increase the number competing for US jobs when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? But our elite will often claim a labor and skills shortage, and there are jobs Americans won't do. Bunk! Our elite just prefer low wage immigrants. Does anyone think it's an accident H-1B, J-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries?
