The group that stands to lose the most with the disaster that is the senate immigration bill are poor Americans. This bill declares open season on poor Americans of all colors. Black, white, brown, yellow it matters not what matters is where you are in terms of your skill sets. If your less educated and less skilled than this bill is an absolute disaster for your future employment prospects. The irony in all of this is that it is this same group of Americans that have been hammered hardest by the Great Recession, with many having still not recovered. This is how your incompetent federal government (both republican and democrat) propose to help those that need help the most. They want to bring in more low skilled workers that are willing to work for less than Americans are so they will compete for jobs with Americans and also drive down their wages. All courtesy of our own government. Meanwhile as that goes on the democrats will then inform the nation that we aren’t spending enough money to help the help the poor in this country that can no longer get a job because a bunch of formerly illegal immigrants took their jobs.
Nothing similar like this has happened since the end of the Roman Empire. In 376 AD the Eastern Roman Emperor Valens under pressure invited Germanic barbarians to settle within Roman borders. They revolted, annihilated the Eastern Roman Empire’s field army and set the stage for the ultimate collapse of the Western Roman Empire in about 100 years time from the original invitation. Our own history shows how this works out as well. The Mexican government invited American settlers to Texas in the early 19th century. Not long after these same settlers revolted against the Mexican authorities and eventually won their independence.
I am not saying all of these immigrants will revolt and destroy America. I am saying that they are going to have a negative impact on our country by taking jobs from poor Americans and by overwhelmingly supporting liberal policies. Another piece of irony is that black Americans were the reason Obama was voted into office twice and it will be the immigration bill that he signs that will destroy what is left of the black middle class. But the biggest laugher out of all of this is that the morons in the republican party actually think that they will get some tangible benefit for their party by doing this while in reality all they will accomplish is creating the conditions for a democratic monopoly on federal power. Hollywood could not write a better script. I am not naive enough to think we don’t need immigrants to help power this economy forward into the 21st century. I am confident though that we should not offer up amnesty to 11 million illegals when this bill doesn’t first address border security. Somebody should also let the incompetents in Washington know that their Free Trade policies destroyed our industrial base and because of that we no longer need millions of unskilled immigrant labor like we did when we had an industrial economy.
