Temporary Worker plans…permanent low wages.

A recent article in the Detroit News has invaluble in-sight and information on the illegal alien crisis in our nation. This is a must read, honest.

“Illegal immigrants make far less than the rest of the population. Their average family income of $27,400 is more than 40 percent below the legal immigrant or native family income of about $47,700, the Pew Hispanic Center reports the News”. [ As an young man, I had a Detroit News paper route – and was a busboy and mowed lawns…hmm…maybe I am not an American?]

The illegal alien lobby – including the criminal employers – that is presently pushing for another amnesty for the black market labor and the illegal colonists we all see each day will tell you that if we don’t make these millions legal, we will have created a “permanent underclass” of oppressed “victims of geography”.

Read what Vernon Briggs, a Cornell University labor economics professor, has to say about illegal immigration, amnesty, guest worker plans and American wages:

“The toleration of illegal immigration undermines all of our labor; it rips at the social fabric. It’s a race to the bottom. The one who plays by the rules is penalized…a guest worker program guarantees wages will never go up, and there is no way American citizens can compete with guest workers.”

[emphasis mine]

A note to your Congressman – and our senators – with similar observations may make him think before he goes along to get along when the President starts pushing his current amnesty by any other name.
