Posted on 03/25/2011 4:59:15 AM PDT by BillKneer
I am getting a little sick hearing the flat out lies we are told about Republicans and protecting our US borders. Every nation has the right, and the obligation, to protect its borders. One argument we hear often is that we need the workers.
The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics this month says that we have 8.9% unemployment. The number of unemployed persons (13.7 million) and the unemployment rate (8.9 percent) changed little in February. 8.9% is only the number of those who the tax payers are supporting through unemployment benefits. It does not count those who are not getting anything at all. So ask yourself do we really need the workers?

Also, Mexican is not a race. How can one be "racist" against something that isn't a race?
Illegal immigration discriminates against millions of “minorities” in countries all over the world, who are waiting to enter this country legally and to become good citizens. I assume that includes anyone in Mexico who is not up to or willing to cross illegally.
Everything the left does is immoral. Also we need the skilled people of the world, like engineers, to compete.
Too many entitlements.
We don’t need more workers we need more people who are forced to find jobs, instead of waiting out their benefits through unemloyment insurance.
Ho many are sitting this one out, Will not take a job because it didn’t pay what their last one paid. Consider themselves over qualified. If someone wants to work there are jobs out there, the illegals are doing them. Some of them do not pay well , but they pay.
However, just becuase they are legal does not mean they don't hate you. Most likely they DO hate you and consider you a white oppressor that stole their sacred land and who keeps the brown man down. That is what they are taught. I saw it myself when I worked in the public schools in Texas.
When taught about the Alamo, they laughed when told about how all the white people died. I was shocked and disgusted.
If you are tired of lies, you probably should not REPEAT them or cite them with out criticism or comment...
What is right is to criminalize the hiring of an illegal alien regardless. No exemptions. No hypocrisy. If an individual cannot determine the legal status of their maid or cook or gardener then hire someone from an agency who can establish that.
Turn the Tables!
Promoting amnesty imposes SLAVE WAGES for LEGAL immigrants!
Legal immigrants are returning to Mexico because the ILLEGALS are undercutting their wages.
You have to admit we would be less concerned if we were being invaded by ambitious education-seeking entreprenuners and Canadian PhD’s in math and science
instead of low educated wealth-eaters running from failed socialist corruption and looking to celebrate it here in America while reviling America
What really irks me are all the illegals coming over here and
excerpting blog posts in order to scam hits from decent Americans.
They are truly scum.
Do you honestly believe that it’s the rich wanting to hire cheap household labor that stands between securing the border or leaving it wide open? It’s large farming corporations and meat processing corporations. IOW. It’s corporations, their lobbyists and the corrupt politicians who sell “we the people” out. The “rich people” wanting cheap maids is a Marxist myth. Look at SEIU, they LOVE illegals and their dues.
We have two problems with the border issue. One is the massive influx of illegals coming for work and freebies. Even if we solved this problem, we’d still have the border security issue. Drug gangs, misc. criminals and potential terrorists would still be left to come and go as they please. They aren’t looking for amnesty.
No, but either hiring illegal aliens as workers is criminal or it is not. Do not pretend that it is in some instances and is not in other.
I wonder why guys like you post excerpts of their own work here at Free Republic?
Why not save the bandwidth and either post your whole article instead of an excerpt? You might have something to say, but the way you post your articles makes you a recurring blogpimp, and If I were you I’d find a new way to post articles here at FR.
I’m not pretending anything; hiring a person who entered this Country illegally should be a criminally punishable offense - in ALL cases. I’m merely pointing out that you shouldn’t be furthering by repetition the Marxist myth that it’s the fault of the rich. The fault lies in our broken and corrupt political system.
I'm not blaming the rich. But I would also point out that it is not the right of the rich to pick and choose what laws to abide by. Nor should laws be written to specifically give them a free ride on what the rest of the population has to do. Undocumented workers are here illegally. Period. Hiring them should be a criminal act. Period. If the mom and pop store in Dallas, barely scraping by, has to go to the expense of ensuring that they are hiring properly documented workers otherwise they may go to jail, then the multi-million dollar home owner in the burbs should have to do the same. Otherwise they should suffer the same penalty.
I agree. I am a “mom and pop” business owner so I am held accountable and feel that large corporations should be as well. When municipalities use tax dollars to fund “work centers” where illegals can go to be picked up for day labor jobs because the street corner they were on was becoming too dangerous logistically, then it becomes abundantly clear that it is our own government that is the problem.
We do NOT need illegal workers, we do NOT need the expense of illegals in this country. We do NOT need to import their Cartel War to our country. We MUST secure the border, end citizenship to children of illegals, deport those living here now ASAP.
It has nothing to do with racism, and everything to do with securing our country and saving jobs and money for our own citizens.
I see that hatred much more in the children that had citizenship handed to them at birth because their illegal mother managed to be here when they were born. Many have been raised on every program thier parents could manage to get on and have no appreciation for the things that make this country great. We really need to end citizenship for those born here to illegal parents.
Lol. All those illegal blogpimps are really a pain.
Yo! It's all about da hits bro! Dah pimps, dey needz dah hitz!
Myself, I just don’t click through. When someone is the author, owns the website and is the poster - and posts an excerpt - I can only take it one way.
