African American Leaders Band Together to Oppose Senate Immigration Bill
PRNewswire-USNewswire ^ | April 23, 2013 | African American Leadership Council

Posted on 04/23/2013 5:46:17 PM PDT by chicagolady

WASHINGTON, April 23, 2013 --/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Wednesday morning, April 24 at 9am, the African American Leadership Council will host a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, to oppose the Senate Gang of Eight's 844-page plus, immigration bill. During the conference, the Council will call on the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), to protect black labor by opposing amnesty and halting efforts to double legal immigration levels, as required under the bill.

Many black leaders have recognized the harm caused by large increases in immigration as the Senate bill entails. As the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights recently reported, illegal immigration to the United States in recent decades has "depress[ed] both wages and employment rates for low-skilled American citizens, a disproportionate number of whom are black men."

"The Senate Gang of Eight's immigration bill is not only impractical, but immoral," said Frank Morris, Council leader, and former Executive Director of the Congressional Black CaucusFoundation. "Increasing immigration levels through amnesty and new visa programs, particularly at the low-skilled level, will flood the labor market with millions more people, leading to higher unemployment, more poverty, and a lower standard of living for many in the black community." Blacks have an unemployment rate nearly twice that of the national average. The Senate's immigration plan to drastically increase the immigrant work force will continue to keep that number high.

One would think they they would intrinsically understand that unrestrained immigration hurts black most by depressing wages for the entry level positions that the black community needs if they are not going to apply themselves in school.

I’ve wondered when the black reps in Congress would finally begin to look after their constituents interests’ on this issue. But I’m not counting any chickens before they hatch.

Looks like they are finally waking up to the fact that Obama and the Demoncrat party has kicked them to the curb in favor of the next new thing, a very prolific Hispanic segment that wants to replace the Blacks at the government trough! If they had stopped to listen to what the leadership of the left has been saying they would have figured this out years ago!

the Council will call on the Congressional Black Caucus

I guess that means there will be no Obamaphones for the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. /s

This will be key in defeating this bill. Is this getting airplay on black radio in Chicago?

As I’ve said many times: You work and work to get full civil rights and “equal” rights in America (whether you agree with that statement, we know that is THE major cause of African Americans).

Then POOF! Like magic, 10 million latinos appear and jump ahead of you in the pecking order, relegating you to suck hind teat just when you thought you were “equal”.

It’s an angle the GOP should play, honestly.

The rats have a newer, bigger, and better voting block to put on the plantation.

These poverty pimps love to stir the pot with talk of the bad ole times when blacks had to "get to the back`a da bus". Wonder how they`re enjoying being UNDER "da bus"?

How could the idiots in Washington DC justify adding millions of illegals to the anemic jobs market and a bankrupt welfare state? These losers are destroying our country at a record pace.
