The Stolen Job Myth

"Which helps explain why immigrants can be depicted on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays as indolent leeches who flock to the United States to go on welfare — and condemned on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays for taking away jobs that would otherwise go to Americans." Poor immigrants, which account for most of our immigrants, can be both hard working job takers and welfare recipients. The problem is that even though many are hard working they lack the skills and education to command much of a salary. The money that they make and the taxes that they pay simply don't cover all of their costs and our welfare society is there to make up the difference. They are here in such high numbers that they lower wages -- their wages and the wages of the native born -- to levels that require the imposition of the welfare state. Restrict the supply of low wage labor (i.e. rduce immigration) and it will rise to a level that won't require the addition of welfare to allow so many of our native born Americans to live and prosper.

"IF ANYONE ought to appreciate the power of immigration to stimulate employment, it is America's energetic anti-immigration advocates, whose jobs wouldn't exist if it weren't for the influx of immigrants they spend their days seeking to curtail. " So our jobs wouldn't exist if not for the swarms of immigrants -- legal and illegal -- that we have endured over the last several decades? Really? How exactly is that the case? Immigration was extremely low from the 1930's through the 1960's and America and American workers did pretty well. If jobs in this country wouldn't exist without immigrants how exactly did the workers of that era have jobs? You may dispute the CIS study, but it is undeniable that job growth has been extremely poor this century-- a century that has seen unrivaled levels of immigration -- both legal and illegal. If immigrants create jobs for American workers then we should have near zero unemployment right now given the unprecedented numbers of immigrants that have come ashore this century alone.
There are a lot of culpable Republicans as well -- Ryan, Boehner, Cantor, McCain, Rubio, Goodlatte, Corker, and the list goes on. These Chamber of Commerce Crony Capitalist Republicans deserve equal shame in trying to pass an amnesty and skirt our immigration laws.
Just think America, all of these diseases, maladies, and psychosis coming soon to your children's schools.
“This is just the beginning,” one source told me. "It is a long-term financial responsibility.” I'm sure Paul Ryan or some other member of the Congressional amnesty and open borders caucus can provide us with some study which will counter these words and general common sense and show us how these illegals will provide our nation with long term financial riches.
Thousands of illegals dispersed throughout the hinterlands don't make for much of a crisis and front page newstory. Thousands of illegals crowded into small makeshift unsanitary facilities creates a crisis and a story. The Obama solution? Get them out amongst the general population to take away the photos and videos highlighting the problem. In other words, hide the evidence of the problems that his policies of non enforcement have created. "Round up the buses and gets these illegals hiding in plain sight."
According tio John Kerry and Obama, these Central Americans are going to be deported. So we have those bogus statements out there while the action on the ground is buses of illegals being dispersed throughout the country never to be bothered by the justice system again.

Why no mention of the vast array of corporate connected interests pushing immigration "reform" (i.e. amnesty and large increases in legal immigration). There is no better example of crony capitalism at work -- the connected few throwing dollars at politicians in order to procure cheap and compliant labor while the taxpayers pay the true cost of these immigrants through a copious array of welfare and benefit packages. Society also pays in the form of lost jobs and reduced wages, cultural dillution, increased crime, and diversity programs that work against them. But the crony capitalists pushing "reform"? They benefit immensly by reducing the costs of their #1 input while living in gated communities seperate from the riff-raff they have flooded into our country.
"Your children can go to school"? Honey, you're only scratching the surface here. We've got so many programs that you and your ninos can tap into that I can only stand here in stunned silence and wonder why it took you so long to get here. Most of these programs you can legally qualify to receive and our Spanish speaking Governemnt administrators will be more than happy to get you hooked up right away. Now others might require a little more creative license, but rest assured the same lax oversight that allowed you to enter here illegally,will turn a blind eye to your receipt of these "illegal" benefits. I'm sure that you can find an immigration lawyer to assist you in your selection of taxpayer provided benefits. The Spanish media and other networks are also out there to provide you information and get you hooked up to all the goodies. Welcome aboard to the land of easy living! Sit back and let us take care of you!

Yes, absolutely; let's reunite the families -- in their home country by deporting the parents.
And yet our elected GOP representatives barely make a peep -- they are too busy cashing the checks from their benefactors pushing for this 3rd world invasion of cheap workers.
