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?

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.

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...
