Hurts American Employment
Facts mean very little in any debate
about immigration north of the Rio Grande. One such example comes from a bastion of journalism, the Daily Beast. Arian Campo-Flores
in an article, Why Americans Think (Wrongly)
That Illegal Immigrants Hurt the Economy, cites an economist, Gordon Hanson in a 2005 paper.
"Hanson analyzed how the size of the undocumented population
and its use of public assistance affected attitudes toward immigration. He found that among low-skilled workers, opposition
to immigration stemmed mainly from the competitive threat posed by the newcomers. Among high-skilled, better-educated employees,
however, opposition was strongest in states with both high numbers of immigrants and relatively generous social services.
What worried them most, in other words, was the fiscal burden of immigration."
The irony is that for all the overexcited debate, the net effect of immigration is minimal
(about a one tenth of 1 percent gain in gross domestic product, according to Hanson)."
This last contention that adverse consequences are minimal, illustrates the withdrawal from
reality of defenders for the latest Obama unconstitutional initiative to eliminate the rule of law.
Senor Campo-Flores needs to deal with the essentials of a report in the End of the American
Dream, 10 Things That Will Happen
If Barack Obama Continues To Systematically Legalize Illegal Immigration.
#1 There Will Be Fewer Jobs For American Workers
the United States today, 53 percent of all college graduates under the age of 25 are either unemployed or underemployed. Many
of them are absolutely desperate for work.
#2 Wages For American
Workers Will Continue To Decline
When you have a lot more workers
competing for the same number of jobs, what happens?
That is right -
wages go down.
#3 Illegal Immigrants Will Overwhelm Our Welfare System
Every year, illegal immigrants receive tens of billions of dollars in welfare payments.
They get free food assistance, free housing assistance, free health care benefits and free education for their children. Life
is good if you are an illegal immigrant and you know how to game the system.
Mexican Drug Cartels Will Establish A Presence In Nearly Every City In The United States
drug cartels continue to expand their influence inside the United States at a frightening pace. They are slowly taking over
our communities. How far do things have to go before we say enough is enough?
There Will Be Increasing "Anti-American Violence" Inside The United States
days a lot of Americans are being attacked (and sometimes killed) down in Mexico.
Massive Bribes Will Corrupt Our Judicial System
When there are billions
of dollars involved, it is inevitable that some members of the police and some members of the judiciary will take bribes.
#7 Gang Activity Will Continue To Grow In The United States By Leaps And Bounds
Gang activity is absolutely exploding inside the United States.
The Decline Of Our Health Care System Will Continue To Accelerate
immigrants are overwhelming emergency rooms all over the country. They walk in, receive high quality treatment and often never
pay after they leave.
#9 Legalizing Illegal Immigrants Will Cause
A Huge Shift In Voting Patterns
Instead of looking out for the American
people, many Democrats support legalizing illegal immigration because it will give the Democratic Party more support at the
#10 There Will Be A Flood Of New Illegal Immigrants
Amazingly, far more people move into the United States illegally than come in through the
legal immigration process.
The structural aims of dismantling
the mythical "melting pot", into a hostile camp of alien factions is the vicious objective of the ruling class.
Couched in the liberal minded attitude of progressive altruism, anyone who defends traditional values and prudent borders
are condemned as the scourge of society.
If the big 10 breakdown aftermaths
are not enough to push your blood pressure to a new level, why concern yourself about the economic fallout from the immigration
highway to oblivion?
The provocative proponent for a coherent immigration
policy, Frosty Wooldridge in What Illegal Immigration
Costs You the Taxpayer, makes the point.
"The lifetime net fiscal drain—taxes paid minus services
used—for an adult immigrant is $55,200.00 according to Carrying Capacity Network. Who makes that money up? You do! Your
work! Your taxes!
With a minimum of 15 million illegal aliens in our
country, these figures are the tip of the iceberg.
You can count on
your corporations devouring cheap labor as they send you to the unemployment lines. Additionally, they pay PAC groups to keep
senators and congressmen in their back pocket. How do I know? Virtually zero companies in 2011 were taken to court for hiring
illegal aliens. None went to jail. However, it’s a $10,000.00 fine per illegal alien hired and up to five years in prison.
You would think that would deter corporations. Not when they’ve bought off enforcement!"
The impoverishment of America and the massacre of the middle class is the conscious intent
of an "Open Border" stratagem. As business conditions continue to deteriorate and employment
options diminish further, the influx of illegal immigrants drives a stake in the fiber of a once viable country. Not all the
bleeding heart empathy in the world can build prosperity in a sinking economy.
political betrayal that allows the unremitting import of peasants only dilutes the standard of living of native-born citizens.
President Obama wants to be a nobility bandit that steals from the Old Gringo. His arbitrary and capricious dictates, best
explained in the "Fast and Furious" saga, drags down the vary tenants of a free society. How can commerce
thrive when institutional corruption flourishes?
American nationals deserve a better country. Illegal aliens have no moral claim on the earned
wealth of ordinary workers. Lowering the standard of wages, adjusted for the true rate of inflation, is a guaranteed formula
for a disaster. Government denial and enforcement avoidance of existing immigration statutes can only destroy what little
respect that exists for political elites. Obama’s fiat decree is just the latest example of another nail in the coffin
of the national body.
