During the 2007-2008 presidential primaries, Barrack Obama said that he didn’t buy into the notion that illegal immigrants were hurting black employment.  That was when he was trying to receive the favor of those who supported amnesty, and wanted to give drivers licenses to illegal immigrants. All those new potential Democratic voters were enticing . But now, black writers, many of who backed Obama’s position on racial grounds, are saying that “potential Democratic voters” are taking jobs away from the blacks.

The Root.com features an article  by  Cord Jefferson “How Illegal Immigration is Hurting Black America”, which laments the impact illegal aliens have on the black community.  Jefferson,  cited Brooking institute senior fellow Audrey Singer, who agrees this situation is clearly hurting blacks.  She also says that illegal immigration disadvantages “people at the lower end of the pay spectrum.” 

Singer accepts that this is detremental to low-income families as well as  black people.  So why were Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter made out to be villains when they called for a stronger border?

Also, Hispanic Americans were disproportionately the victims of abductions and murders at the hands of illegal immigrant criminals.  But the conflict was always framed as older intolerant white Americans against poor Hispanics who just wanted to work.

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, says that employers find Hispanic illegal immigrants easier to deal with and less demanding than black workers.  He even claims that management doesn’t want to deal with “the young black male”.

So would Obama’s Amnesty policy going to lead to continued displacement of the voting block that gave him 95% of their support?  Of course it would.  That is why it was so important for his supporters to make the Tea Party and town hall movement out to be “ethnically motivated” as Matthews put it.  This masks the reality that Obama’s agenda actually harms the lower skilled workers more than it hurts “fat-cat” CEO’s.

 The only reason that the unemployment figures are not rising as fast as they had in 2008 is because so much of the pool of “expendable” labor has already been laid off.  Firms are down to their most essential employees, and the lure of  low-wage workers who don’t demand more becomes very difficult to resist. 

Most people don’t remember Obama saying that this issue was a “gimmick”, but it seems the very people who so ardently supported him are realizing that it was a very real problem.

More Hope and Change we can believe in.

    This is where the Progressive Socialists reach the 4th Dimension (4-D) – keeping blacks Down, Dumb, Dependent, and Democrat.
    They keep them tied down in inner cities where there are no jobs, all businesses had long since been run out of town, and no new businesses dare run the gauntlet of economic regulations designed to keep those businesses running in circles and yet never managing to “make a profit”, so they don’t even bother any more.
    The inner city schools are among the WORST ON THE PLANET, even though we spend MORE PER CAPITA on these students than ANY PLACE ON THE PLANET.
    They’re not taught what 2 plus 2 is, but are instead applauded for whatever amount of effort they apply towards even trying to answer the question. And no one ever fails. They’re not educated, but they don’t fail…
    But, as they are “educated”, they are told there will be a “place” for them to “stay” when they graduate, or not graduate…they are taught how to “work the system”.
    But don’t worry, just keep voting the Democrats back into office, you’re salvation is only “one more tax increase against the rich white guy away”, “one more election away”. Its always the “rich white guy” that’s keeping the Progressives from “fulfilling their mission” of “saving” you, Mr Blackman.
    So, just stay here, Kunta, stay down on this concrete plantation, stay dumb, keep depending on the Progressive Socialists to take care of all your needs, and keep voting Democrat….remember, “only one more election away…”.

    The worst thing that could ever happen to the Democratic party is for the “ghettos to become ghost towns”.
    When the blacks become dispersed throughout “white suburbia” and their voting power dilluted amongst their white neighbors, it will be the end of the “black voting block”.
    The Democrats will NEVER let that happen.
    To the Democrats, the blacks MUST remain Down, Dumb, Dependent, and Democrat.

      Excellent response Stitch! You said it all! You make a great to the point explanation on why Demmocrats and NEA are against home schooling and vouchers. I actually thinkthe NEA is on the verge of being truly evil. This progressive authoritarianism is a sickness! We are the cure!

    Its imperative that–YOU–don’t let your state fall into the same financial quagmire, as the illegal alien SANCTUARY STATE OF CALIFORNIA. E-Verify, the foreign labor removal system has been ignored by the Sacramento assembly, because they have been overwhelmed by corporate lobbyists. The payoff is large campaign contributions and likely undisclosed cash gifts. This is why California has been in political turmoil for years, unable to pass any worthwhile legislations. California is America’s largest population of illegal immigrants, and likely illegal voters as there is no true ID oversight to who votes? California bears a huge cost to provide basic human services for this fast growing, low-income segment of its population. NumbersUSA website indicates 43 percent of all illegal aliens live in California as of 2006. According to U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS), an estimated 2,209,000 illegal immigrants resided in California in 2000, up from 1,476,000 in 1990. More than 66% of all births in California are to illegal aliens from South of the border on Medi-Cal and CalWorks. 40% of all workers in L.A. County ( L.A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes.

    This was because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, visa over-stayers border jumpers are working without papers or with fraudulent documents, drivers licenses or Social Security Numbers. E-Verify should be mandated by Homeland Security and ICE in California, no longer as a preference to parasite business.Every business within thew state should be forced to use E-Verify, with appropriate severe punishments. E-Verify must be a countrywide law, not at the whim of company owners. GOT A PROBLEM WITH YOUR STATUS, GO TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE FOR JOB CLEARANCE. Instead of underfunding National Security as Obama has done, this should be of the highest priority. Eventually terrorists will slip across the perforated border, if they are not already planning deadly attacks inside cities now. We cannot as a country be dictated to by corrupt politicians, because of the exaggerated need for cheap labor. Before ICE raids were compromised by Janet Napolitano and the open border fanatics, hundreds of real Americans lined-up for jobs, we have been indoctrinated in the old, tired statement, “Jobs that Americans wont do..? ” Its been a conspiracy from the start by open border extremists, through three presidents that we have secured our borders, when laws have been derailed. Including the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act that to this day has never been enforced.

    Well after watching American Indians recruited by the US Border Agency, to patrol their own land. That the border is still wide open, to drug traffickers, gun runners, heinous criminals and large groups of illegal aliens crossing each day. American Patrol, a resilient pro-sovereignty group has proved beyond a shadow of doubt that–THE BORDER IS FAR FROM SECURE. Amazed that Napolitano would lie to Congress, because what I have seen along the international border is neglected stretches of simple rusty barbed wire. I am amazed with such a few BP officers, covering massive areas of open land manage to capture the amount of elicit drugs and illegal aliens that they do. Nothing could be far from the truth, that even the millions of dollars spent on border, does not represent the original conception of Rep. Duncan Hunter’s two layered fencing. You will–NEVER–find the truth in the Liberal Press, such as Los Angeles Times or the New York Times. We have been lied to? Unless we are willing to drive to the border and observe the fencing, the American Public will remain completely ignorant.

    Key findings in a report by Judicial Watch, that the state’s already strangled K-12 education system spends approximately $7.7 billion a year to school the children of illegal aliens who now constitute 15 percent of the student body. Another $1.4 billion of the taxpayers’ money goes toward providing health care to illegal aliens and their families, the same amount that is spent incarcerating illegal aliens criminals. Stated Dan Stein, President of FAIR. “California’s addiction to ‘cheap’ illegal alien laborers and their extended families has near bankrupted the state and posing enormous burdens on the state’s shrinking middle class tax base,” Californians, who have seen their taxes increase while public services deteriorate, already know the impact that mass illegal immigration is having on their neighborhoods, but even they may be alarmed when they learn just how much of a drain illegal immigration has become.

    California was subsidizing illegal immigrants to the tune of about $1.1 billion (1994) annually. Intentional US population numbers have been sterile for years, because our government doesn’t want–THE PEOPLE–to know the truth? A large percentage of foreign women have deliberately illegally entered our nation, to deliver their babies. Our overwhelmed welfare system has attributed to highest number of pregnant women, receiving free natal treatment for “Anchor Baby Children. The enormous rise in the costs of illegal immigrants over the intervening eighteen years, is due to the rapid growth in illegal settlement. It is reasonable to expect those costs to continue to rise if action is not taken to turn the immigration tide.” In 1994 was the year that California voters rebelled and overwhelmingly passed Proposition 187, which sought to limit liability for mass illegal immigration. As I have mentioned before, that the 187 law was intentionally engineered to terminate its course, to the highest court in the land where its constitutionality could have been proved.

    Since then, state and local liberal majority assembly have blatantly ignored the wishes of the angry voters and continued to shell out publicly financed benefits on illegal families. The costs of illegal immigration have grown demographically across this nation, while border states has spiraled into a fiscal catastrophe that has brought many to the edge of bankruptcy. Nothing could more starkly illustrate the very high costs of ‘cheap labor’ than the SANCTUARY STATE of California’s current unresolved situation. Numerous numbers of powerful special interests in the state reap profits, while the average indigenous-born family in California gets handed a nearly $2.000 a year bill with more to come?

    California will never rise from the ashes, without removing honed Liberal oriented politicians from any public office. California is strangled with its worst economy since the Great Depression, illegal immigrants are becoming part of the discussion on every Americans lips. California lawmakers in July 2009 struggled with a budget gap that has now grown to $26.3 billion, one of the hottest topics for many taxpayers is the cost to the state of illegal immigrants and the ever increasing costs. Not speculating that either Democrats, Republicans or Independents are without blame in what they address as their issues, but Liberals have brought most border states to paupers situation, by allowing the easy flow of illegal immigrants into California, Texas, Texas, New Mexico. Governor Richardson, unlike most states issued drivers licenses to illegal immigrants. Only hard core, Liberal extremists have resented any kind of restrictions on illegal alien benefits, starting with Proposition 187 passed by true California residents and blocked from reaching the Supreme court.

    The once Golden State is saturated with millions of illegal families, that have worn away public services. Schools are inundated with illegal children in the millions, with English as a second language. Schools are especially hit hard, because their has been a definite reduction in academic performance owing to overcrowded classrooms. A very depressive situation has evolved, as many hospitals and clinics as the schools have been unable to handle the influx of Anchor babies and desperate illegal settlers from South of international Southern fence. I saw this first hand before I departed California, as my sons school was all but English as a second language. Very few Angelo’s are aware of Title 1 schools that offer free breakfast and free lunch programs. Saying free breakfast, Its not talking a glass of milk and roll — but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices of which the dumpster becomes full. Free medical, free education, free food, day care and host of programs that most American taxpayers remain ignorant about?

    Huge outlays of funds have been distributed to foreign national families, even through our own citizens and legal residents have been declined. Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich said, “such situations are, unfortunately, all too typical. “It is catastrophic,” Antonovich says. “We cannot be the HMO to the world.” Another voice Legislative Analyst Dan Carson says California now spends about $4.6 billion yearly to provide services for — or to incarcerate — illegal immigrants.” This has been a never ending problem for taxpayers and now Sen. Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Sen Diane Feinstein and all those who pander to the illegal alien occupancy–MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE IN FUTURE ELECTIONS

    EVERY LAW TO DO WITH IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT INCLUDING THE 1986 SIMPSON-MAZZOLI BILL HAS BEEN UNDERMINED BY MANY POLITICIANS AND THEIR OPEN BORDER LOBBYISTS. The time has come for all American taxpayers to demand from your reluctant legislators to make Permanent E-Verify, with no exceptions to every business, to remove illegal workers from American jobs. To fund federally train every law officer across the country–as with SANCTUARY CITIES AND STATES–to be empowered to–without prejudice to question any person at their discretion, under the blanket of 287 (g) immigration enforcement law as with the right of Federal agents to audit any business using illegal foreign workers. The-NO MATCH-LAW, should never have been rescinded, when Social Security numbers have irregularities. And all ITIN (alternative to a Social Security number) issued by the IRS, should also be scrutinized as this is way illegal aliens have found an unlawful pathway into seemingly being a legal resident. Not even the original border fence as designed as two layer barrier. Even the decennial US Census is to be compromised by counting illegal aliens. MOST BORDER STATES HAVE COMPARABLE FINANCIAL CRISIS AND TODAYS PAYOUTS FOR ILLEGAL ALIEN FAMILIES, HAS ACCELERATED OUT-OF-CONTROL.

    The tax and spend mentality has specifically caused a terrible crisis in California by Sacramento Liberal apologists in the assembly. In Los Angeles city the indifferent indifferent elected officials have a nerve to try and pass a $100 dollar tax on Angeleno property owners to bolster the wilting school funds. In my way of thinking, Angeleno’s should place the whole city officials in contempt and propose a class action lawsuit in front of the courts. California’s nearly 3 million illegal immigrants cost taxpayers in 2004 nearly $9 billion each year, according to a report released by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a Washington, D.C.-based group that promotes stricter immigration policies.The study looks specifically at the costs of educating illegal immigrants’ children, providing medical treatment to illegal immigrants and jailing those convicted of committing crimes.

    The report estimates the total cost at $10.5 billion each year, but that is offset by about $1.7 billion in taxes that illegal immigrants pay. also added an estimate of 597,000 U.S.-born children whose parents are illegal immigrants arriving at a total of 1,022,000 children. Multiplying the number of children by the estimated $7,577 the state spends on average per pupil, the study arrived at the $7.7 billion figure. FAIR defended the report, saying that the children (Anchor Babies) were born in the United States as a result of their parents’ illegal entry into the country. A similar study conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington, D.C., and released in August 2004, said that illegal immigrants cost the federal government $10 billion more than they pay in taxes. “State costs are much higher on a per capita basis because of the fact that the largest expenses are medical care and education and those are borne at the local level, not the federal,”

    THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DO NOT PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE, WHICH THEREFORE IS BORNE BY STATE TAXPAYERS. In conclusion we cannot afford another AMNESTY, because the millions of illegal immigrant families will have access to Senior Citizens pensions, SSI, and many other entitlements for US born and legal residents. Learn what you can do at NUMBERSUSA & JUDICIALWATCH or call your federal representative at 202-224-3121. A good example of state politicians ignoring their commitment to their legal residents, is the near bankrupt state of the–SANCTUARY STATE of California.

    I had hoped the left was better than the empty rhetoric attack noe pevading the media. But I guess it’s just too much to ask that they pass on such excellent sounds bites as, “Breathing while brown” and “When brown means illegal.” Illegal immigration is a problem with serious negative effects: http://www.thinkersjam.com/illegal-immigration-is-not-a-racial-issue/. Maybe at some point we can get past the incendiary rhetoric and have a real discussion on the matter.”
