Illegal Immigration

The “left” and the “Neocons” screech at the same “pitch” when it comes to illegal immigration“they both love it.”

Liberals get to “feel good” about helping poor, innocent “dreamers” even if it’s our own people that are often the victims.

Meanwhile, the “globalist elites, the plutocrats, politicians, and big business,” are busy importing a “pseudo-serf class” to mow their “lawns” and clean their “toilets.”

Either way, both sides try to “convince” the average American that “illegal immigration” is in their “best interests.”

How?

They “appeal” to the lowest common denominator: “The economy.”

I’m going to “walk” you through some of the “logic,” and show you that “illegal immigration” is actually causing an “economic disaster.”

More People Means More Workers—And Lower Wages

You’ve heard of the law of “supply and demand?”  It’s how the “free market” determines prices.

When “demand” goes up, “prices” go up (more people bid up the price).  Conversely, when “supply” goes up, “prices” go down (there’s lots to go around, so there’s no urgency); and vice versa.

“Supply and demand” applies to the cost of gasoline, apples, and to a person’s labor, “if lots of people can do your job, you’ll get paid less, since employers have their pick of the litter.”

A bigger “labor” supply gives bargaining power to employers: “they don’t have to pay a decent wage, since so many people want the job, and they don’t have to give you a raise, and if you don’t like it, they’ll hire someone else who does.”

They’ll hire an “illegal.”  Don’t like it?  Too bad.

 The fact is that America’s “labor market” has been “flooded” with 11-33 million illegal immigrants looking for work.

This drives “wages.” Period.

Illegal’s Work Under The Table

Illegal’s work “off-the-books,” making less than “minimum wage,” and they don’t get “benefits” that citizen’s would get etc.

Basically, illegal’s “undercut” the labor market’s mandated floor, “pulling the rug out” from American workers.

There’s no way a “minimum wage” worker can compete against someone “working for $2 a day.”

This means their “impact” on US wages is even “bigger” than it would otherwise be.

Wages aside, employers like to“hire” illegal’s because they have “leverage” over them: “if the illegal misbehaves they can fire them no problem, and they can force them to work in crappy conditions that Americans wouldn’t.”

This makes it “impossible” for American citizens to compete with “illegal immigrants” for the same jobs.

It’s why the youth unemployment rate is so high. Fast Food places used to be “operated” by teenagers, now they’re “stuffed” with illegal’s.

Only 10% of illegal immigrants “work” in the US agriculture industry—most work in “services,” contrary to what we’re “constantly being told by the left.”

American “agriculture” would be fine.  Farmers would just need to buy more “tractors & equipment.”

Debunking Some Common Leftist Lies

 I know what you’re thinking: (I) “we need illegal’s to do the jobs Americans won’t do,” or (II) “the economic benefits outweigh the costs”.

“Illegal Immigrants Do Jobs Americans Don’t Want To Do”

 This isn’t “true.”  Why?

There are 23 million “unemployed” Americans right now, and at least 11 million “illegal” immigrants.

Even if you “deported” every illegal and gave that job to an American, the “unemployment” rate would still be around 7%. We’re talking real unemployment, not the garbage “official” number.

Americans are “willing” to work the jobs illegal’s do, and they currently “work” them in states where there “aren’t” illegal immigrants.

If you read this document published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you’ll see that there are “literally” millions of Americans, “white, black, and Hispanic,” who are employed as “janitors, laborers, store clerks,” everything.

It’s simply “not true” that Americans won’t “do” these jobs. They “can’t,” because they’re being “undercut” by illegal immigrants.

Believe it or not, but people in states “without” illegal immigration like Montana or Ohio can still “afford” McDonald’s and Starbucks. They just hire “teenagers” to do the jobs.

The same goes for entire “countries,” like Canada.

The fact is this: “if we deported illegal’s from California, the labor market would begin to look more like Pennsylvania or Indiana—teenagers, and black or Hispanic Americans (who tend to be on the low-skills end of the labor market) would do the jobs, rather than be unemployed.”

And even if there weren’t “enough” people, we could just “automate.”

A final note: there was a time “before” illegal immigration.

How do you think the “jobs got done before that?”

“We hired teenagers and invested in better processes and technology to improve our efficiency.”

“The Benefits Outweigh The Costs”

Nope. Not true.

Illegal’s are a massive “drain” on government resources, which leads to “higher” taxes.  That’s not “good” for anyone.

Just look at California: they spend almost 20% of their government budget on illegal’s.  What a “waste.”  Citizens could use that.

Likewise, the drain from “remittances” is significant when you remember that most illegal immigrants are “concentrated” in a few states, California, Texas, New York, Florida, Arizona etc.

When you consider these “factors,” in addition to “wage stagnation and unemployment,” illegal immigration doesn’t paint a “very rosy picture.”

It’s Time To Stop Illegal Immigration

I’ll tell you what: “university professors, senators, news anchors aren’t losing their jobs to illegal’s.”

“It’s guys who work construction. Gals who work in malls. Ordinary folk.”

I can “guarantee” you that if all illegal immigrants were “Pulitzer-winning writers and famous actors” that the borders would be “shut up” tighter than the “gated communities” where Hollywood’s “elites” live.

So there you have it folks.  Do with this information what you will, but please, stop “pretending” that illegal immigrants are an “economic panacea.”

They’re not.
