Here’s an example of something pro illegal Immigrant advocates AREN’T talking about:
As detailed in Importing Poverty: Immigration and Poverty in the United States: A Book of Charts the bottom line is that illegal immigration brings in a tremendous number of poor and uneducated people along with all their inherent problems. As noted in the KGTV report, Illegal Immigration Could Cost Taxpayers Trillions, “The influx of illegal immigrants has effectively “imported about 10 million high school dropouts into the United States,” said Robert Rector, a senior research fellow in welfare and family issues for the Washington, D.C.-based think tank.”
This is a hidden cost U.S. citizens aren’t considering. Other countries don’t have a problem letting their millions of poor live in squalor. Not so in the U.S. We are a compassionate nation. We have thousands of programs which taxpayers foot the bill.
One can understand why Mexicans, the largest component of illegal aliens, come to the U.S. In Mexico, they are typically paid only $5.00 per day for their labor. When wages for Mexican workers rise, the peso is conveniently devalued to keep Mexico competitive with foreign countries like China and India. The owners of Mexican businesses often keep their money in dollars in American banks and escape the devaluation of their currency. Between that and the thoroughly corrupt government, the common people are forever doomed to poverty. Without a revolution in Mexico, America is their only hope.
The president and Congress are doing their best to stick Americans with the cost of supporting Mexicos people. Mexico is not a welfare state……We are Mexicos welfare state. The Federal Government has consistantly required the States to pick up this cost. For you and me it’s not going to stop anytime soon.
The poverty and other problems associated with mass low-skill immigration would be of less concern if they could be expected to quickly vanish in the next generation. Unfortunately, the evidence indicates that this will not occur. For example, the low levels of education, high levels of poverty, and high levels of out-of-wedlock childbearing found among Hispanic immigrants since 1970 persist among native-born Hispanics in the U.S. to a considerable degree.
These data indicate that the current influx of low-skill immigrants will raise poverty in the U.S. not merely at the present time, but for generations to come. Current low-skill immigrants will raise both the absolute number of poor persons and the poverty rate in the U.S. for the foreseeable future. The greater the inflow of low-skill immigrants, the greater the long-term increase in poverty will be.
SOURCE Importing Poverty
Since the immigration reforms of the 1960s, the U.S. has imported poverty through immigration policies that permitted and encouraged the entry and residence of millions of low-skill immigrants into the nation. Low-skill immigrants tend to be poor and to have children who, in turn, add to America’s poverty problem, driving up governmental welfare, social service, and education costs.
Today’s immigrants differ greatly from historic immigrant populations. Prior to 1960, immigrants to the U.S. had education levels that were similar to those of the non-immigrant workforce and earned wages that were, on average, higher than those of non-immigrant workers. Since the mid-1960s, however, the education levels of new immigrants have plunged relative to non-immigrants; consequently, the average wages of immigrants are now well below those of the non-immigrant population. Recent immigrants increasingly occupy the low end of the U.S. socio-economic spectrum.
Americans are being told we need this unskilled immigrant population because they are doing jobs Americans won’t do. The real reason is, the Democrats ( so called supporters of the working class) want the votes…..at your expense…….and the neocon Republicans want to drive down the cost of labor for their big business buddies……at your expense.
Who loses out? Well…..you do.
