Skip to comments.Deal Said to Be Reached on Guest Worker Program in Immigration (Clears path for amnesty)
Posted on 03/30/2013 12:41:18 PM PDT by montag813
HERE WE GO. The game's afoot. In 2007, a critical factor which torpedoed illegal alien amnesty was the failure of labor unions and the business lobby to reach a deal on a "guest worker" program. Now, the New York Times is reporting that the sinister cabal of the AFL-CIO and U.S. Chamber of Commerce have reached a "deal". That's right, just what America's 20 million unemployed and underemployed need - MORE foreign workers to take MORE jobs and undercut wages even further.
The Chamber could not give a damn if illegal aliens destroy American jobs and bankrupt schools, hospitals and social services from coast-to-coast. They just want an endless supply of cheap foreign labor to artificially boost profits of slave labor-addicted businesses. And the corrupt unions bosses are happy to tolerate new foreign workers and betray their own workers, so long as they can achieve a massive amnesty to strengthen their political position and explode their dues. This is called TREASON. And the fight against amnesty that will begin in just 9 days just got a whole lot more serious.
So enjoy a happy Easter weekend with your family. But come Monday morning, we want ALL SWA HANDS ON DECK, as we begin the fight with new allies and new tools to defeat the traitors. Stay tuned.
From the NYT:
WASHINGTON The nations top business and labor groups have reached an agreement on a guest worker program for low-skilled immigrants, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said on Saturday. The deal clears the path for broad immigration legislation to be introduced when Congress returns from its two-week recess in mid-April.
Senator Charles E. Schumer, a New York Democrat and one of eight senators from both parties who have been negotiating an overhaul of the nations immigration laws, convened a conference call on Friday night with Thomas J. Donohue, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Richard L. Trumka, the president of the A.F.L.-C.I.O., the nations main federation of labor unions, in which they agreed in principle on a guest worker program for low-skilled, year-round temporary workers.
Some ‘representative republic’ we have here.
Yep....most in DC only represent themselves. The ruling class disgusts me.
When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ?
This is a question: Should Mexican citizens when in the US be given the same rights American citizens are given while in Mexico? This has yet to appear on any US legislator’s questionaire from either chamber....ASK YOUR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS WHY IT HASN’T
What makes it necessary for US to subjugate our sovereignty because of available cheap labor ?
Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.
Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.
Americans cant own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash theyll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the fresh. Thats just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea lets give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections .
Time for recall petitions - REMOVE THE SOBs!!!
Don’t these fools realize that they are cutting their own throat’s? Those wages are moneys that will leave our economy and never come back. That will do the Chamber members no good, except for short term cheap labor, followed by long term customer shortages.
Measuring the Fallout: The Cost of the IRCA Amnesty After 10 Years
By David Simcox May 1997
The federal government began legalizing almost three million illegal aliens 10 years ago, on May 5, 1987, wary of the fiscal liabilities of opening more public assistance programs to a population with high needs and low taxpaying power.
To ease the burden on the states, Washington closed some programs to the newly legalized for five years and reimbursed the states nearly $3.5 billion for some of their aid costs.
Was the concern of Congress, the White House, and many state and local leaders justified? A review of the evidence a decade later confirms that legalization indeed carried a high fiscal price tag a total 10-year cost of $78.7 billion with the indirect and downstream costs still accumulating. In the ten-year period ending in 1996, the amnestied population:
Accounted for an estimated $102.1 billion costs in current dollars in twenty federal, state, and local assistance programs and services.
Paid total taxes of $78 billion, for a ten-year fiscal deficit of $24 billion in the public assistance and services portion of the budget.
These are estimates of the direct costs only. There were, and will continue to be, significant indirect costs associated with the legalization of 2.7 million persons:
Job Displacement: About 1.66 million legalized workers, 70 percent of them unskilled, displaced an average of 187,000 citizen and settled immigrant workers from jobs each year. Costs of public assistance to those displaced totaled $9.9 billion for the decade.
Citizen Children: Women in the legalized population had an estimated 1.25 million U.S. citizen children between 1970 and 1996. Public education and three major public assistance programs to citizen children 18 and under amounted to $36.1 billion in the decade since amnesty.
School Costs of Undocumented Children: Remaining in the households of legalized population, or joining them subsequently were some 400,000 illegal immigrants by 1996, up from 177,000 in 1987. Costs of providing public schooling for them was $8.56 billion.
Five-Year Prospective Education Costs: Public education costs for U.S. citizen children of legalized aliens are projected to claim an additional $29.4 billion in the five years from 1997 to 2001, mostly from state and local budgets.
Total direct and associated indirect costs of the legalized population after taxes reached $78.7 billion in current dollars for the decade.
Large numbers of the legalized began to naturalize starting in 1995. According to the U.S. commission on Immigration Reform, 1.4 million spouses, children, and parents of amnestied aliens now on immigration waiting lists, will gain immediate entry as relatives of citizens. The costs of public education for the young people of this population and medical care and income support for the 900,000 aging parents is expected to be formidable.
No public hearings for the American people. Just backroom deals.
It’s all about the money. Public servants going after the BIG bucks stolen from the workers by a bunch of union thugs.
AND, with that unemployment rises because illegals will take jobs the legal won't be able to get.
Illegals aren't on the unemployment rolls but legals will go on the unemployment rolls.
Now watch organized labor (Unions) go after these newbies to the workforce.
I wish FR’s would read the comments first before responding to them . I’m discussing reciprocity not the cost of amnesty. What has what you sent me the rundown of an article outling the costs of amnesty written by Simcox got to do with reciprocity and the treatment of American citizens in Mexico ? If you want more on the cost of amnesty try this http://theusmat.com/mexico.htm. I certainly don’t need any more.

Mexico currently is a country under siege by drug runners. Unless you wish to enter a conflict where half of our people support the enemy, I suggest you abandon the idea of reciprocity with Mexico. There’s no way we can afford the amnesty of 40 million uneducated people. As it is they are dragging us into a depression.
In the Bloggers & Personal forum, on a thread titled Deal Said to Be Reached on Guest Worker Program in Immigration (Clears path for amnesty),
Responding to the question of the US Government giving illegal or legal Mexicans citizens residing in the US reciprocal (the same treatment) rights given to American citizens living in Mexico
Mexico currently is a country under siege by drug runners. Unless you wish to enter a conflict where half of our people support the enemy, I suggest you abandon the idea of reciprocity with Mexico. Theres no way we can afford the amnesty of 40 million uneducated people. As it is they are dragging us into a depression.
That is the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. Oh fer cry sakes look up the word reciprocity it is clear you have no idea what it means, does, or is.
