They (i.e. supply) are coming here for jobs (i.e. demand). It is a pure and simple rule of economics: Stop the demand, and you will stop the supply. If only it were that simple, meandog. In reality, it's much more sinister than that. In Indianapolis, as recently as 6 years ago, there were American drywallers, roofers, painters, etc. working here. That is not the case now. A walk through construction sites of new homes and businesses will leave you wondering when you left America and landed in a foreign land. Americans are being DISPLACED from their jobs. It isn't that these are jobs "Americans won't do" as they were doing them until very recently! A brother who owns a successful painting company is now facing hard times because his competitors (many of them his friends) started using illegal alien laborers over the last three years. My brother refuses to do this and he can't bid jobs nearly as cheaply as they can, so his contracts - contracts he has had for 10 years and more - are being given to others. American workers who obey the law are being punished and made to face unfair competition simply BECAUSE they follow the law. McCain wants to secure the borders; he has stated that time and again (which is different than anything you'll ever hear from the Democrats) Both Dems and Reps have stated that they want to "secure the borders," but neither have any intention of doing so, IMO, or if they do, they intend to do it ONLY AFTER granting amnesty to the 30 million illegals already here (and their extended families, as well) in the hopes that they can sway more voters over to their side (not America's side, just THEIR side) in the future. But what you don't hear is anyone (GOP or Dems) ACTUALLY (though they do talk about it) going after the "demanders," and therefore the root of the drive for amnesty, BECAUSE they are the money conduits (Walmart, Kmart, Swift, Armor, Del Monte, Green Giant, General Mills, Golden Corral, Holiday Inn, Ramada Inn, small business owners and farmers, unions and corporations, ad infinitum that supply campaigns and keep politicians in power). When politicians do discuss taking on the "demanders," as many have, they are faced with unbelievable opposition and demonization from fellow Republicans (RINOs, like McCain), Dems, Chambers of Commerce, trade associations, ethnocentric groups like LaRaza, Maldef, etc. They are excoriated and villified publicly, all with the help, most usually, of an unmerciful, pro-amnesty news media.
Very well stated - thank you!
I dont believe the issue is Hispanics, the problem is ILLEGALS, ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS, the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, and other SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. Since the ILLEGALS infamous L.A. march displaying their foreign flags demanding their rights United States citizens are distrustful of any organized protest demanding anything. The situation will remain this way until our National Borders are secured and our Immigration Laws are Enforced. Our Elitist Politicians at the demand of their Elitist Political Contributors, Chamber of Commerce, and other Special Interest Groups will not allow the problem to be solved for fear of losing a dollar.
Just follow the money my friend. The “political contributors” will get their “cheap labor” and not have to furnish any “benefits” because all the “benefits” for the ILLEGALS will be furnished by the taxpayers enforced and implemented by “our politicians” and their “men”(see Johnny Satan)!!
The point is not if they are good or hardworking people, the point being they are here illegally! They do drive down our wages and take from the United States treasury for the benefit of the very few(ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS see ROBERT CAMP) who privatize the profits for themselves at the expense of the vast majority.
