I have been thinking about amnesty a lot lately. I just cannot believe the President is going to go forward with executive action and essentially pardon 5 to 12 million illegal aliens. This is what I can’t figure out, why in the world would the African American community support the President and Democrats after this action. They are going to be the ones who are hurt the most. After these aliens become legal there will be more competition for low wage jobs, more competition for government services and it will eventually make Hispanics the largest minority group in the United States. So what’s up with that?
According to the Heritage Foundation the cost of pardoning 33 million aliens will be 6 trillion dollars. Most of the cost will be Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance, education, welfare benefits and other social services.
Additionally, amnesty will depress wages. The majority of the new immigrants that would benefit from amnesty would be low-skilled labor. The CBO stated that wages would decrease over 10 years. And the US Commission on Civil Rights stated both legal and illegal immigration accounts for forty percent of the 18-point percent decline for African American employment levels.
And we all know that if the President grants amnesty millions of new illegal immigrants will head North starting the cycle all over again. This is exactly why Republicans say we MUST secure the border before we do anything with illegal aliens already here. Again the CBO has stated that illegal immigration would continue at 75% the rate even after the Presidents amnesty. So we can expect another crisis in 10 to 20 years.
While the President continually talks about the widening divide between the rich and poor, giving amnesty to millions of 3rd world poor will do nothing but make it worse.
I cannot understand why African Americans support this amnesty. I recently heard a Democrat say that he could not understand why poor white southern voters voted Republican – it was against their best interest since Democrats want to grow government and the safety net. Well I have the same question for African Americans – why in the world would you support this disaster?
Google Amnesty Immigration and low income Americans, I couldn’t find one article that said amnesty would be good for low wager earners…
