Posted on 01/30/2013 4:10:03 AM PST by lowbridge
Theyre not contributing members. They take away jobs from Americans, leech off the social benefits system and commit a number of crimes besides the whole illegal entry deal. Jails tend to be full of illegal aliens for a reason.
"Every day, like the rest of us, they go out and try to earn a living. Often they do that in a shadow economy a place where employers may offer them less than the minimum wage or make them work overtime without extra pay. And when that happens, its not just bad for them, its bad for the entire economy. Because all the businesses that are trying to do the right thing that are hiring people legally, paying a decent wage, following the rules theyre the ones who suffer. Theyve got to compete against companies that are breaking the rules. And the wages and working conditions of American workers are threatened, too.
So if were truly committed to strengthening our middle class and providing more ladders of opportunity to those who are willing to work hard to make it into the middle class, weve got to fix the system."
Obamas solution to employers hiring people under the table for low wages is to legalize 11 million illegal aliens. Which will open up positions for more illegals to come and work under the table, while the newly legal illegal aliens end up eventually going on unemployment once they get their green cards because theres no work for them. And then well legalize the new illegal aliens because etc
How does dumping 11 million aliens into the economy, on the social system and into the job markets strengthen the middle class?

First off, the 11 million number is a big lie. It will be more like 25 million OR more. The system can NOT sustain that. Some of the reasons for doing this go all the way back to the Israelites who were clamoring for a king:
1. Taxation - All the newly-minted citizens WILL pay a boatload of taxes.
2. Soldiers for war - God told them a king would take their sons for war.
3. Votes - The politicians are salivating at the prospect of additional votes. Mexicans vote Democrat. Period.
Also the scripture says: Deuteronomy 17:15 you shall surely set a king over you whom the Lord your God chooses, one from among your countrymen you shall set as king over yourselves; you may not put a foreigner over yourselves who is not your countryman.
To put this in the right prospective....when you move the eleven million to legit status as citizens...their employers will quickly dump them because the guy will expect real wages, real social security payment, etc. So the new citizen will end up at lower-end job....with no health care....because almost all will be in 30-hour or less situations (the new trick by employers to avoid the healthcare mess).
Meanwhile, the old employers...seeking really cheap labor....will entice a replacement squad of eleven million within three years to move into the US and set up residence for the under-the-table jobs.
Frankly, I’d stop all this immigration effort, and aim strictly at the employers...American citizens....and start bringing them into court. They deserve months in jail for continuing this whole practice and violating all the various laws already in existence. If they were truly fearful of court or jail, they wouldn’t be hiring the illegals.
Yes, the Obama buttlicking media in Miami this morning is running the sound bite....I thought “How in hell does an open border help the middle class?”
“How does dumping 11 million aliens into the economy, on the social system and into the job markets strengthen the middle class?”
It doesn’t strengthen the middle class; all it does is create friction and chaos - the very things for which BHO2 lives.
He is the King of chaos, the bringer of flies.
Obama is puposefully destroying America. Of those 11 million about 48% of them receive means tested welfare
fronm the States in whioch they are located. They are here to work or simply get the dole, and have no interest in becomeing “Americans” in the sense of patriotism. They are here as a part of Obama’s reconquista demographic warfare
No surprise. We were warned:
Then we know it will destroy the middle class. hussein has done nothing but lie to us to get what he wants - power and control. He wants eleven million new (?) democrat voters. He has lied to us about lobbyists, gitmo, balancing the budget, second amendment rights, obamacare, compromise with the gop. You can search and find exhaustive lists of his lies, they are literally far too numerous to list here. Their common theme - not only are they promises or statements that he later goes back on, they are obviously untrue when he says them and or it becomes obvious later that he knew they were untrue when he spewed them out. If i lied at work - any, I’d be fired, period.
According to the Center for Immigration studies, up to 75 percent of illegal aliens pay Social Security and Medicare payments from their paychecks even though they are not legally entitled to a Social Security Account.
In other words, they all don't hang out at gas stations, Home Depot, etc. looking for a cash paying job on a daily basis. They make up, steal, reproduce SS numbers and work in chicken plants, rug plants, rendering plants, where ever a manufacturer is willing to not ask too many questions about that Social Security card for William Smith they present. So, the illegals get the SS and medicare assessments taken off their check and they claim 8 or 9 dependents on their W-4 and have virtually NO federal or state taxes withheld.
The Social Security Administration has been quietly ignoring this because the payments into their system are a benefit with no heretofore outlays for them. This will change when/if they are legalized. If anyone believes that the SSA does not know exactly how many fraudulent SS numbers are in use and how many are duplicates, they believe in the Easter Bunny, too. They KNOW EXACTLY! It is too simple of a programming task not to. In fact, there are likely multiple tracking accounts for duplicated numbers so that the SSA doesn't have to pay out a maximum retirement payment for the poor sucker whose number was stolen. They are COMPLICIT and CORRUPT.
Alas, this will change when Obama gets his voters. The 12 million suddenly becomes 50 million, and they are all new projected SSA benefit recipients! Add to that the millions of sponsored influx of parents, uncles, aunts and cousins, and you have complete financial disaster....
But Obama won't care - he wants that, in addition to those new Democrat voters.
Why does anything this turd “claims” even written down? It’s impossible for him to tell the truth.
Obama Claims Adding 11 Million criminal Workers Will Strengthen the Middle Class.
May I suggest another moniker for our fearless leader as turd may be offensive. Might I suggest President Erkel. This was Glenn Beck’s name for “that guy”.
Sorry, I just had to correct that. And if you believe only 11,000,000 criminal aliens have invaded our country...
As always the issue is controlling entry.
Without a controlled border and controlled visas, the whole exercise is ignorant. Sen. Rubio pointed out the other day that 40% of illegal entry is those on different kinds of visas just not going home. A controlled border wouldn’t prevent that.
So, we also need a visa tracking system.
The best border control is with a fence. Along rivers and other natural boundaries where that might be impossible, the fence needs to farther back on American territory while justly compensating any displaced landowners (true eminent domain).
Tracking visas would be useless also. So somoene overstays, you have to get a hold of them to deport them.
I think the answer may be how the Saudis and Kuawitis do it. You can come in illegally but you can’t do anything. In those countries you can’t own a cell phone or have a business unless you have a green card(their version) The cops there have no qualms about asking for your papers.
Mess around and break their rules and you are on the next flight out.
If we make it difficult for them to earn a living here they will leave on their own.
The burning ignorance of “demlogic.”
Obama USDA met 30 times with Mexican govt to promote food-stamp use among Mexican immigrants
Thats more than Obama has met with his own intelligence officials in the last few years.
But hey, keep working and clipping coupons- millions of anchor babies depend on you.
Most Illegal Immigrant Families Collect Welfare
Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies. Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives, according to the extensive census data collected and analyzed by a nonpartisan Washington D.C. group dedicated to researching legal and illegal immigration in the U.S...The majority of households across the country benefitting from publicly-funded welfare programs are headed by immigrants, both legal and illegal. States where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare use rates are Arizona (62%), Texas, California and New York with 61% each and Pennsylvania (59%).
The study focused on eight major welfare programs that cost the government $517 billion the year they were examined. They include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for the disabled, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), a nutritional program known as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), food stamps, free/reduced school lunch, public housing and health insurance for the poor (Medicaid).
Food assistance and Medicaid are the programs most commonly used by illegal immigrants, mainly on behalf of their American-born children who get automatic citizenship. On the other hand, legal immigrant households take advantage of every available welfare program, according to the study, which attributes it to low education level and resulting low income.
The highest rate of welfare recipients come from the Dominican Republic (82 %), Mexico and Guatemala (75%) and Ecuador (70%), according to the report, which says welfare use tends to be high for both new arrivals and established residents.
good times. and we wonder why we’re broke.
We’re still waiting for all the great, higher-paying jobs that offshoring our tech jobs promised us.
Someone should introduce a 3% across the board tax increase to pay for the added cost of our new citizens.
Watch how fast the pro amnesty bunch change their minds.
Which is why the regulations are the problem. Eliminate the regulations forcing labor costs up for hiring, and this demand goes away.
You have to send them home. That is the only way to do it. You have to deport them when caught and send them home.
There is simply no other solution. All these other stopgaps close the barn door after the horse has been stolen. Letting them come, establish a presence in America, layering up laws to prevent them from doing stuff - all of these can be circumvented. Every single one.
Heh, Saudis are among the largest in human trafficking.
..true but they don’t have 11 millions leaches.
Let’s dispense with the 11 million lie straight off. The real figure is closer to 30 million.
“...May I suggest another moniker for our fearless leader as turd may be offensive. Might I suggest President Erkel. This was Glenn Becks name for that guy....”
Maybe so....but I really like “turd” better because you really can’t polish a turd. The media keeps trying but most folks that haven’t had their brains diseased by liberalism know better. In their attempt to polish, the media keeps knocking off that old dry outer crust and every time they do, it’s the same old moist stinky crap inside. You’d think they’d get tired of playing with crap after a while. Oh wait, they are crap! Birds of a feather so to speak.
They’ve been tossing around that 11 million number for what, 6-8 years now?
What they aren’t saying is those 11 million alone have spawned at least double that. Plus you have at least the same amount that have came here since.
It doesn’t take a math genius to figure out how many new democRAT voters that will bring.
We are so screwed.
No country can absorb the entire underclass of another country and that is what Mexico is asking us to do.
I am in strong disagreement with him about one thing.
He criticizes the shadow economy as a bad thing. I disagree completely. The shadow economy is a form of insurance against oppressive government. It was in full bloom in the Soviet Union through the worst of its dictatorship, to the point where their country (or at least millions of people) could not survive without it.
So what is the shadow economy? Most people assume it is the “black market”, but it is much more. Many of those who populate it are “blanks”, people who are not “in the system”, have no government issued ID, pay no taxes, work for cash only, and who see government as an oppressive enemy.
Some, of course, are criminals, or ex-cons who can only find employment here. But many just want to be free from government. They detest government and want no part of it in their lives. Their only interaction with government affirms this opinion.
They are willing to live in poverty to do this. And it means that they also must use alternate means to get what government says on it can provide, or that other people cannot have.
If Obama and his vile cronies outlaw guns and ammunition, the shadow economy will provide. If the Tea Party is outlawed as a terrorist organization, it will still exist in the shadow economy. If the government decides to confiscate all gold, there will be a river of gold in the shadow economy.
This is not a bad thing. It is a proud American tradition.
The “spawn” are US citizens. You are now in the dilemma, how can we deport a citizen child? We can deport the parents but what will happen to their children?
In other countries they don’t have this problem as the children of non citizens are not automatically granted citizenship like here.
"Obamas solution to employers hiring people under the table for low wages is to legalize 11 million illegal aliens.

Yep. It will also hurt certain private sector union members, and inner city youth in competing for jobs.
I agree. Anchor babies is a huge problem.
California even has “maternity” hotels to create anchor babies.
The Japanse used to do this in Hawaii. I think they have a rule now where ythey can’t fly if they are close to having the baby.
More shovel ready jobs?
The 20 million plus illegals will simply be added to the 47% of Americans who do not pay Federal income tax (and most would not pay state income tax either). In exchange for contributing nothing to revenue, they will get welfare, housing, food, education, medicaid, etc. A simple cost benefit analysis indicates a huge negative impact for America. And what about those low-paid jobs that Obama claims the illegals do? Well once they are officially “legal”, the employers will have to pay them minimum wage, which will price them out of the job market. The predatory employers will by-pass them for new illegals, who they can manipulate into working for low wages because of their illegal status. And America will end up with 20 million underemployed “Americans” and a fresh batch of 20 million new illegals. And the only victor will be the Democratic Party.
I totally believe this. I would also not be surprised if these SSI’ers, TANF, WICs, EBTs, SNAP, EITCs are collecting this welfare in addition to actually collecting a check under a W-2....the government will not cross check, unless it is to see if they have one welfare program and can qualifies for others.
These illegal Mexicans, Guatamalans, South American you-name-its, are the death of this country. You make them legal, and you open up the flood gates for up to 100 million new welfare recipients that can also qualify for SSA and medicare. Obama laughs while they pick our carcass, what does he care, he’s living like he’s on MTV Cribs...
Since we are not in the practice of keeping people’s children. They are free to leave with their parents. They can return when they are adults.
It’s time we ‘did away’ with these freeloader programs.
And why do we gripe about the illegals doing it when there are PLENTY of Americans who leech the system(taxpayers) too. You know....we did this to ourselves for falling asleep on the job.
In all humbleness of my opinion ‘littleharbor’ I think what you say is correct and to a small degree and very little timing it would be a democratic victory but looking in the long run, a ways down the vanishing point of the rail road tracks and insecure border trails those 12-33 millionillegals becoming legal or even getting green cards will be short lived.
This will have such a horrid affect on the economy, on health care, on housing on gangs and crime and such I do question should this really happen just what this country would look like in four years.
No, i believe this is just another horrible cog in the wheel broken and frayed, as America falls to the abyss of a thord world nation with sero credibility, spending into nothingness and anarchy in the streets, cry for me Argentina, Greece? We have $330 million people less 53 million aborted children a solar syatem full of immorality just in the last year and I pray and hope somehow this coup against the Bill of Rights, against legal Americans against leagalimmigrants who did it right, and maybe, maybe somehow we’ll be able to quell the border sieve, the huge white slave market, the weapons distribution( allegedly 200-300 have been murdered in mexico alon because of denied” youall bin racist” said Holder).
No, I agree but I also fear beacuse the way things are and with the strenght and powerof the government they have the ability to shut down our electrical, tax companies to oblivion, deny our medical needs, freeze our bank accounts and ultimately destroy what untorn fabric of American society is left.
Some say obama over stayed his bellowing on the fiscal cliff taxing the rich which didn’t even cover the hurrican damage.
What is to keep this man and his rezidentura, his collective brown-shirts, his incredibly disheartening EPA rules and regs trying to fight Climate Change with more fervor than Don Quioxte attempted over and again to slave the dragons( windmills!)
I may be going off on a tangent but this just fits too perfectly into a tactic/strategy of his determination to force a class warfare, a race war in which the common white middle class/slent majority will be the victims, the recipients of taxed to death( lieterally) outsourced and reneging again on poaying just the interest on bills.
When General NcAuliffe was surrouinded in the woods in WWII and the German general extened a hand of mercy he said,NUTS!” He kept fighting but he was in a battle and as bad and brutal and bloody as it was he knew his enemy and yet the major difference in this fracas, this attack on our very inner core of morals, values of all America is, all she stands for from the flag to the Liberty statue, to Arlibgton and to the greatest industrialized nation in the world with the strongest most powerful military in the world unlike Genreal McAuliffe,k we have noo idea where Obama will hit next and there is no silver bullet that will drain this demonic dracula leeching all that is righteous in this country.
I suppose this is too long. I wish I could summarize like others in a single basic sentence but my minds eyes see such an entangled web of deceit I cannot write just what allowing ILLEGALS( a low ball number if I’ve heard one) when journalists, all the propagandists, and demonizing GOOD people from Palin, to Rubio, to Bachman and King( just sayijng we should look into islum, redistricting Allan West and watching Romney crumble like a steam rolled potato chip when the very election was suspect.
This ‘littleharbor’ is exactly right in what you say. All I’m writing or trying to write is we are chasing so many issues tomorrow it’ll be Major hasan pleading guilty seeking life when he gave 14 death, or the next day when Obama attacks the do nothing congress, or the day after when he demanded 40 trillion more dollars or the day after when he write fifty executive orders only homosexuals and women can run Stryker units and after that he’ll deny israel a penny because they’re building a home on land they bought and fought for in five major wars and the next day it’ll be time to call all Mexicans legal( and all spanish speaking illegals) and we will NOT speak to them in anything but in their own language, and on and on.
It’s all got to end, this is just another cog, and yep you’re irght but I’ve no answer except I wish this limp-dinkus would start fighting like a man. Until then keep your powder dry and please send up a prayer or all we’ll be doing in the next few years is trying to figure not just how to hold on to some money but how to help our children have hope without the chaffing of the metal shackles this tyrants has imposed on every man, woman, and child.
Obama is puposefully destroying America
Heres the Truth.
Obama is puposefully destroying America
Heres the Truth.
11 million? Ha. At least half of that number are here living in N. Virginia.
What will we get for 11 million? More dirty diapers heaved into the shopping mall lots. Insurance rates skyrocking. Americans being killed, raped, stolen from. Garbage in the streets. Jobs stolen. Lines at the ER. Traffic clogged. More taxes because we’re “broke” ...broke because we keep handing money over to these illiterate peasants coming from all directions.
Our country is not only broke, it’s beyond MAD. Why are we just sitting here letting the Democrats destroy us in this manner?? These people don’t deserve to come here and receive all these benefits! Are we NUTS??
We spoke on amnesty, several years ago. They ignore anything Americans have to say on the subject. Our will be damned ....they are going to open the gates and we will be flooded. If you ask me, this is a total crisis situation — we are being invaded.
And yet, the Super Bowl is on this weekend and I think people are more worried about the chicken wing shortage than anything else!!!
The usurper in the white hut has failed in his oath to protect and defend the constitution for these united States of America and his duty to secure the borders of this once-great republic.
Of course, this is all according to the agenda: weaken America at any cost. This will be one more nail in the coffin of the republic.
I agree the number of illegals here is understated by at least 100%.
These are the same outsourcing/insourcing traitors of both Parties that have spent the last 4 decades sending our security, economy, and jobs to Asia etc.. It was done not in an effort to actually benefit or strengthen the USA, but to enrich global corporations and those few who paid to elect them.
“We are so screwed.”
Yes, we are, I suspect that we were way too far down the wrong path before we ever even heard the name of Hussein Obama. He is doing everything possible to hasten the end result but we were on the path long ago.
That makes your tagline, btw, one of the more useful on FR, esp. with the article's frequent quotes showing how Obama actually embodies and makes living the features of "liberal fascism" that conservative hero Jonah Goldberg wrote about in his book of the same name.
