Lost Opportunities: Immigrants, both legal and illegal, have accounted for all the job gains in the U.S. since 2000. With labor force participation rates at record lows, why do some tout the benefits of importing workers?
According to a White House report released Wednesday, the immigration legislation tinkered together by the Gang of Eight (or Gang of Ocho, as critics sneer) would increase real GDP by roughly $700 billion in 2023 and reduce the federal deficit by almost $850 billion over the next 20 years.
This would happen, we're told, by bringing illegal workers out of the shadow economy into the real economy where they'd pay taxes and contribute to society.
The long-term costs are ignored, though. The Heritage Foundation reckons the short-term tax boost would lead to a long-term drain of up to $6.3 trillion in benefits that legal taxpayers would have to fund for legalized immigrants over their lifetimes.
Indeed, while the Gang of Eight's bill bars amnestied immigrants from receiving most federal benefits for 10 years, the time-frame supporters tout as providing the boon, the costs will stack up after that.
The Congressional Budget Office analysis of the supposed benefits does not take into account the Medicare and Social Security liabilities that amnestied illegal aliens will begin accruing immediately.
While that debate rages, the Center for Immigration Studies has released a report questioning the need to import workers or amnesty those already here in an economy where the labor force participation rate is at a record low, millions have dropped out of the workforce and too many are underemployed because they can't find full-time employment, a situation ObamaCare already is making worse.

I think this may hit the Black community hardest, they should be asking themselves “ Who loves ya baby?” because it sure as hell isn’t the demonrat party.
You can thank Rubio, Ryan, McCain and the rest of the RINO clique in league with the entire democrat party for selling our childrens' birthright for a few more votes or campaign dollars.
All part of Hussein 0bama’s plan to destroy the Country.
Find it strange when the excuse is being given that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives but because the illegals are not citizens and in “the shadows” according to Florida’s Senator Rubio the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..
THE QUESTION IS SENATORS HOW COULD YOU PASS A 1200 PAGE BILL YOU HAVEN’T READ... THAT HAS A FINE OF $5000 FOR ANY EMPLOYER WHO HIRES A CITIZEN OVER AN ILLEGAL ...WHY ARE YOU SO SET ON IMPORTING LOW WAGE LABORERS MAINLY FROM ONE COUNTRY WHICH TAKE UP JOBS OUR YOUTH AND ESPECIALLY BLACKS COULD BE PERFORMING ?
KNOWING THIS HOW CAN YOU HOUSE MEMBERS PASS ANY KIND OF LEGISLATION THAT MAY HAVE THAT AND AN UNSECURED BORDER COMMING OUT OF “CONFERENCE”....???HOW ABOUT REPRESENTING THE INTERESTS OF YOUR CONSTITUENTS AND THE COUNTRY NOT YOUR POLITICAL PARTY ?
FR’s ; are urged to visit their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings ... WHEN IT COMES TO AMNESTY
THIS IS THE MEXICAN PART NO ONE DARES MENTION
If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators. PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.
ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AND SKILLED LABOR QUOTAS FROM OTHER NATIONS ...WORSE YET OFFERING AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY THAT COULD AND HAS TURNED INTO PROBLEMS FOR BORDER STATES CLAIMED BY MEXICO .
In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. Theres a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.
SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hyphenated Americans trap created by the hyphenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS
The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. Theyre permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country dont get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.
Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.
ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS ?
We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). Its displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. Were courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.
MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED ?
Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. Theyll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesnt apply to a citizen of Mexico
THE SOLUTION ASSERT OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND TALK RECIPROCITY .
By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally were offering no incentive for assimilation and were not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.
ENOUGH OF THE ONE WORLD SOCIALISM ...BRING BACK SOVEREIGNTY AND SANITY TO OUR COUNTRY .....BRING BACK BELIEF IN GOD ...THIS GOVERNMENT OUT OUR FACE..... OUR RELIGIONS..... AND OUR BEDROOMS..
I’m first generation, my Parents waited years to come over, they had to have a sponsor and were required to sign a binding legal document that they would receive or ask for ANY aid from the government. They never considered themselves hyphenated Americans,. When they became citizens they were AMERICANS period! Not Hungarian Americans, just Americans. I can’t get my head around Latino, Hispanic, African American( just when the hell do Blacks finally become just AMERICANS?) If you don’t want to be a AMERICAN then go the hell back to Mexico, Africa, Hispanola(isn’t that where a Hispanic would come from?) Ireland, Germany, Whatever! Be an AMERICAN, period! There that’s my American rant, GOD Bless America, Love it or get the hell out!
But in all of the efforts to pit slaves against each other, there’s no heat on employers from political boot lickers to repeal local anti-manufacturing regulations and bring jobs back to America.

My point exactly until the Republican leadership takes this line and forgets about “demographics” and hypenhated Americans used by the hyphenated Demo-Com party they will continue to lose elections.
