Illegal Immigration is Destroying America!
The EVILS of illegal Immigration
"Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily persuaded." —Karl Marx
We don't have a country if we don't have a border! Open borders are an economic weapon against the American people. The Federal government is ignoring the illegal immigration problem, because a group of thug criminals have taken over our government.
All recent U.S. Presidents have been blackmailable puppets of the hidden powers controlling Washington D.C., Wall Street, the Bar Association, the Supreme Court and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Illuminati's ultimate goal is global enslavement for humanity. They have taken over America through The Council On Foreign Relations. Wake up sheeple!
History records that "Karl" Moses Mordecai Marx Levy (1818-1883) was born on May 5, 1818, in the city of Trier in the Rhine Province of Prussia (now Germany). His mother, Herietta Pressburg, was from Holland and like Karl's father, was Jewish and also a descendent of a long line of rabbi's.
Marxists view the family as the primary obstacle to dismantling nation-states and thus establishing a collectivist Utopia. The social and political health of a nation-state is inversely proportional to the degree of racial, lingual, and religious diversity within it. In other words, the greater the “diversity” in a nation-state the less stable and enduring it is - a principle well understood by Communists everywhere. Marxism is less an economic theory, than it is a state of mind from which certain theories and practices have evolved.
This state of mind is maternal and group-centered, and includes the view that Man's natural state is collectivist, or communal. Individual needs and wants must be subjugated to the needs of the community or state - to the needs of a borderless world or “Global Village.” -Ray Novosel (read more)
Without a border there is no country!
Explaining the reason for Nazism, Communism, the open borders, America being a house divided on many issues, and recent race wars in the U.S. news, William Guy Car states...
The Forces of Evil realize that in order to win undisputed control of the material assets of the world, and establish an Atheistic Materialistic Totalitarian Dictatorship, it is necessary to destroy all forms of constitutional government and organized religion. In order to do this the Force of Evil decided they must divide the peoples of the world against each other on various issues. Dating back into antiquity the Aryan and Semitic races were driven into enmity against each other to serve the secret ambitions of their atheistic-materialistic leaders. Had the people's of the Aryan and Semitic races remained steadfast to their belief in God, and faithful to His commandments, the Force of Evil could never have accomplished their evil purpose.

The Illuminati are relentlessly doing everything in their power to create tension, division and strife in the United States. Their goal is to divide and conquer. While the lying newsmedia focuses on petty crimes committed by our neighbors down the street, not a word is mentioned about the looting of $23.7 TRILLION taxpayer dollars by the criminal Federal Reserve bastards who own Wall Street. While your neighbor gets sentenced to 7-years prison for having 2 marijuana joints on his possession in his living room, the thieves in Washington who have bankrupted our nation have never even been indicted. It is injustice! The high treasonous crimes of the Clintons, the Bush Family, the Gores, Obama and many others. There needs to be a hundred trials, in a court of law, and then the convicted ought to hang in broad daylight for the public to watch.
Please don't get sidetracked from the real issues; such as, fighting the New World Order, spending time with your family instead of working 2 jobs or overtime. Don't do it! Relax and let God help you find a better way. If you hate your job, look for another job and then quit the first job once you find a second job you like (perhaps doing something that you enjoy doing). If you like music, get a job at a music shop working in sales, building or designing. Inlaying is a much sought after skill and pays well. Anyone with a steady hand who is patient can do great wood inlay work. Don't let them drive you insane by getting you to pay for a bunch of things you don't need, like a new car and expensive furniture. The predatory ruling elite WILL continue to send American jobs overseas until we cannot survive anymore in society. It is criminal treason!!! Bad times are here! They're going to get MUCH WORSE, very soon in America. Are you prepared?
It's a good idea to start moving away from the big cities and into small rural villages (at least 20-30 minutes drive from a major highway or road). There are still nice places to live to raise a family or retire, but not in any big city in America. Small is best with limited access to the outside world. Learn to grow your own garden and store seeds and storable foods.
Comments from webmaster of Jesus-is-Savior.com...
Today is Saturday, March 19, 2005. I just heard on the news that an estimated 8% of America's workforce is composed of illegal immigrants. Meanwhile, eight million U.S. citizens can't find employment. What is wrong with this picture folks? One-third of the prison population in America is composed of illegal aliens. 36 to 42 percent of illegal aliens are on welfare. For a good proportion of these people, the American dream becomes a life of crime and welfare, not coming here to find work. What ever happened to American sovereignty? Our borders are wide open. President Bush promised 2,000 new boarder patrol guards. To date, he has provided only 200. Do you have any idea what illegal immigration is doing to destroy America? These illegal aliens DON'T pay a dime in taxes!!! They are paid peanut-wages under-the-table. Yet they enjoy the benefits of health care, food stamps and enrolling their children into our public school system. Who do you think pays for all that? That's right, you and me! Why are legal U.S. citizens paying for the bills of ILLEGAL aliens?
Why would George W. Bush and others (including Clinton) in our government allow such a damnable thing to happen to our country? It is NOT because Bush needs the Hispanic vote. He just got re-elected and is still pushing intensely for wide open borders. Three out of every four immigrants today are ILLEGAL aliens. Do you know why Bush is betraying America? It is because in order to form a New World Order (NWO), the Devil's gang MUST destabilize American society. You see, America is their strongest resistance. The illegal immigration is all on purpose folks!
"So, the ultimate purpose of all this attack on nationalism is to tear down national borders so that they can be replaced with a borderless world, a one world government.
The New Agers/Humanists/Communists/Masons want a one world government. They are confident that their goal will be achieved soon because they are creating the conditions that will persuade the people that they should adopt the world government when it is offered.
The family unit; the right to own private property; the national borders; the right to believe in a creator God; these beliefs will all be destroyed because the world must receive a world government supported by the planners inside the secret societies and the new religious groups.

Likewise, the Federal Reserve was created to ultimately bankrupt America (and it certainly is). There was a communist plot to destroy America before the turn of the nineteenth century. You can laugh, but it is nonetheless very true. The NWO seeks to create a ONE-WORLD system (the beast system prophesied of in Revelation). This will include a one-world currency, a one-world religious system, and a one-world political system. Though Satan must run his course, but we are still obligated to fight the evils of our day.
By flooding America with illegal immigrants, corporations are provided with slave-laborers who have NO rights. President Bush claims that the illegals are filling the job slots that Americans don't want. This is a lie. Of course we don't want those jobs, who wants to work for $2-4 an hour? Who can survive on such little pay in today's economy? By the Bush administration providing illegal aliens who are willing to work for slave wages and without benefits, it encourages U.S. corporations to bypass American workers in preference of illegal aliens who can easily be EXPLOITED to work for next to nothing.
Our living standards as Americans will continue to decrease. Perhaps you are one of the fortunate ones who haven't felt the pinch yet, but you will...YOU WILL! The dollar has lost 30% of its value since the year 2000. The price of oil has skyrocketed to over $56 a barrel. Fewer and fewer companies are offering benefits. Insurance companies are ruthlessly changing their policies to cover less and less, denying every claim possible. Alan Greenspan warned that three and a half million manufacturing jobs have left the USA just in the past four years alone. Those high-paying jobs are being replaced by low-paying service oriented jobs (basically doing each other's laundry). And MANY of those new jobs are being filled with illegal alien workers. Not one American company was fined or punished last year for hiring illegal immigrants. C'mon folks, wake up!
Where is this all heading? America is committing suicide by allowing it's government to continue it's reign of irresponsibility and terror (Iraq alone has already cost us $288,000,000,000). Mothers are increasingly being forced into the workplace. The crime rate will drastically increase as our economy falters. More and more homes will be foreclosed upon by the greedy banks. Fewer Americans will be able to afford to hire a lawyer when Uncle Sam shoves drugs down your child's throat (big bucks for the drug companies). Why are the churches silent? Why aren't Americans outraged? It is because we are complacent and sinfully indifferent.
Do you have any idea what is actually going on in America? I'll tell you...we are headed for national bankruptcy! The government knows that John Q. Public will go bananas when the truth hits home. So the government bides it's time by playing a game of smoke and mirrors. Every time some of the evil truth begins to surface, our government simply borrows more money (deficit spending) to bide some time. Do you know what people do when they are in debt? They bounce debt from one credit card to another, liquidate assets, and ultimately sell the farm when they go under. America is headed for DESTRUCTION. Much of our debt is being financed by foreign countries through bonds. We are $37,000,000,000,000 in debt as a nation. Every penny of federal taxes collected doesn't even cover the interest payment we owe on our nation's debt. Do you know what that means? It means that we have passed the point of no return. We will never be able to get out of debt. One day foreign troops will march on American land, they will confiscate our properties at gun point, and we will get what we deserve (bondage to a system which will dehumanize us)
Illegal immigrants are being brought in to provide cheap labor for the greedy corporations. In 1988, General Motors closed up their auto manufacturing plant in Flint Michigan...laying off 30,000 American workers. All those jobs went to Mexico where poor foreign workers received a whopping 70 cents an hour. Already MILLIONS of manufacturing jobs have left America. Many American corporations EXPLOIT the poor in other countries to increase profits, eliminate having to provide costly benefits, eliminate having to maintain safe workplace conditions, eliminate having to uphold harassment or discrimination laws, eliminate any union interference or demands, etc.. In effect, it allows corporations to dehumanize their employees. The corporations (which basically control our government) have since found a better way to increase their profits, simply lower the American worker's wages by flooding the country (workplace) with illegal aliens. You can count on a lower standard of living in the decades to come.
Illegal aliens also provide cheap labor for small companies. Many of America's small businesses simply cannot stay afloat anymore. As the value of the dollar continues to decrease, so will the profits of American companies continue to erode away. I read last year that hundreds of American auto-part companies would be facing bankruptcy because the price of coiled steel DOUBLED from $300 to $600 per ton. Most of our steel comes from China. China is witnessing a massive expansion of it's own cities and the demand for steel is high. So we pay more! Do you see the consequences of allowing our steel to be manufactured by foreign countries? America is very dependent upon other countries today, we have lost much of our sovereignty. As the U.S. economy continues to deteriorate, cheap immigrant workers will alleviate the conditions temporarily for a few years to come (another Washington smokescreen). Ultimately, most companies will go under financially, the small mom and pop businesses will disappear, replaced by the monopolizing mega corporations. Our taxes will have to sky-rocket, medical coverage will be dismal, personal bankruptcies will be denied by the courts, many people will lose their homes, our wages will be increasingly confiscated, many people will be forced to take legal drugs (to increase Pharmaceutical company profits), prisons will be filled to overcapacity, the crime rate will soar, Social Security will fail...the nightmare is just beginning. This science fiction is real. Corporations rule the world, and we are soon to become slaves in a police state.
So while Bush is worried about "terrorists" 10,000 miles away, there are MILLIONS of illegals crossing the southern border of the U.S. every year. 'Com on, who are you kidding? Who Left the Door Open?

illegal Immigration Costs California $10.5 Billion Annually
From Robert Longley, Your Guide to U.S. Gov Info / Resources.
State's "cheap labor" costs average household $1,183 a year
Dateline: December, 2004
In hosting America's largest population of illegal immigrants, California bears a huge cost to provide basic human services for this fast growing, low-income segment of its population. A new study from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) examines the costs of education, health care and incarceration of illegal aliens, and concludes that the costs to Californians is $10.5 billion per year.
Among the key finding of the report are that the state's already struggling 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.
"California's addiction to 'cheap' illegal alien labor is bankrupting the state and posing enormous burdens on the state's shrinking middle class tax base," stated Dan Stein, President of FAIR. "Most Californians, who have seen their taxes increase while public services deteriorate, already know the impact that mass illegal immigration is having on their communities, but even they may be shocked when they learn just how much of a drain illegal immigration has become."
The Costs of Illegal Immigration to Californians focuses on three specific program areas because those were the costs examined by researchers from the Urban Institute in 1994. Looking at the costs of education, health care and incarceration for illegal aliens in 1994, the Urban Institute estimated that California was subsidizing illegal immigrants to the tune of about $1.1 billion. The enormous rise in the costs of illegal immigrants over the intervening ten years is due to the rapid growth in illegal residents. It is reasonable to expect those costs to continue to soar if action is not taken to turn the tide.
"Nineteen ninety-four was the same year that California voters rebelled and overwhelmingly passed Proposition 187, which sought to limit liability for mass illegal immigration. Since then, state and local governments have blatantly ignored the wishes of the voters and continued to shell out publicly financed benefits on illegal aliens," said Stein. "Predictably, the costs of illegal immigration have grown geometrically, while the state has spiraled into a fiscal crisis that has brought it near bankruptcy.
"Nothing could more starkly illustrate the very high costs of ‘cheap labor' than California's current situation," continued Stein. "A small number of powerful interests in the state reap the benefits, while the average native-born family in California gets handed a nearly $1,200 a year bill."
The Federation for American Immigration Reform is a nonprofit, public-interest, membership organization advocating immigration policy reforms that would tighten border security and prevent illegal immigration, while reducing legal immigration levels from about 1.1 million persons per year to 300,000 per year.
OPEN BORDERS DESTROYING AMERICA?
ASK YOUR CHILDREN
by Jim Moore
Being a consumer, buy-now-pay-later society, when we wonder about what illegal immigration is costing this nation we get out the figures and start calculating the loss in terms of money.
Seldom do we consider, or empathize with, the victims of this lawless, over-the-border explosion: the rancher who has his fence wires cut and his cattle driven off; the wife who is afraid to leave the house at night for fear of being assaulted; the farmer who has his croplands invaded and trampled flat; the homeowner who has to clean up the garbage the illegals dump and leave behind.
If you think this is an exaggeration, you haven't been in Arizona, California, New Mexico, or Texas lately. The horror scenes experienced, and reported daily, about the invasion of our borders is enough to turn stomachs.
Mine, for one, did a real flip flop when I read the latest report from WorldNetDaily of what illegal immigration is now costing America. And not just in money.
When I got to the part in the report about what the cost of illegal immigration was doing to the education of our children, I nearly retched. Having to subsidize mostly illiterate foreigners is bad enough, but lowering the boom on the necessary tools for educating our school children is an unconscionable act. Which I, for one, will never accept nor forgive.
Illegals are "busting the educational budget", reports WorldNetDaily, "to the tune of $7.4 billion", which is hurting American kids across the country.
You certainly don't have to be told that public schools throughout the nation are on shoe-string budgets, and are also facing continuing decreases in funding. What money is budgeted is used to accommodate mass illegal immigration. Result? American kids, yours and mine, are taking the hit.
That's not all. The budget shortfalls also mean reductions in child care and early childhood programs. The American Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR) tells us that, "drastic cuts mean teacher layoffs, larger class sizes, fewer textbooks, elimination of sports, language programs, and after-school activities." All benefits that our own kids need, and aren't getting.
And to pay for all the things our kids are NOT getting, how much money is illegal immigration depriving the states of? California spends the most: $2.2 billion to educate illegal immigrant children; ranking second and third are Texas and New York.
Like it or not, that's only a small fraction of what it costs us to subsidize education for more than one million illegal immigrant children now living in the U.S. All children have a right to an education, no one can argue that; but not at the expense of our own kids.
A Supreme Court decision in 1982 forbade public schools from shutting out any children, regardless of citizenship status, from an education. That means that children of illegal immigrants are entitled to the same educational benefits as American children, without having to share in the cost.
The fact that ALL costs must be borne by American taxpayers didn't seem to bother the Supreme Court---or its supporters, who maintain that educating illegals is minimal compared to the $700 billion annual cost of public education.
But this lopsided giveaway is on the hot seat. More and more American families are getting fed up with providing free education, and other gratis benefits, to illegal aliens. With a million illegals taking up residence in the U.S. every year, Americans families are rebelling.
The latest polls show that 70% of Americans want a reduction of immigrants into the U.S. Over 80% feel that closing our eyes to illegals jumping the border will encourage more to break the law. And over 90% of Americans support military patrols of our borders. (Those soldiers that aren't somewhere else in the world protecting other borders, that is.)
With this illegal, foreign bombardment of America's education budgets, costs are exploding, debt is increasing, the money-well is running dry, and American children are the losers.
Are there any answers? Try these. Stop treating illegal immigration as a free lunch. Close the gaping holes in our southwest and northeast borders, and do it fast. Enforce the immigration laws that politicians seem to have forgotten are already on the books.
"If illegal immigration is not stopped at the borders," warns FAIR spokesman, David Ray, "its negative consequences, including bankrupt emergency rooms, and overcrowded schools, quickly become everyone's financial burden."
I have news for you, Mr. Ray.
It already IS everyone's financial burden. But more than that.
Since American kids are being cheated out of a full and proper education, the cost we will
Why Illegal Immigration is Basically Legal in America
By Ted Rall
The cold war you never thought about, the one between China and the Soviet Union, had been dead for a decade when I made the trip from what is now called the Kyrgyz Republic to western China in 1999. Although troops no longer massed for possible war at this border, crossing the high-altitude Torugart Pass remained an arduous bureaucratic odyssey. Getting out of Kyrgyzstan required presenting a special exit visa at a dozen checkpoints on the way up to the border outpost. A dirt track took me through 20 kilometers of no-man’s land to the political border, which was only open on Fridays between 9 a.m. and 12 noon. When my Chinese driver arrived on the other side of a bullet-pocked faux triumphal arch marking the border, two Chinese soldiers accompanied him to sign for me, Checkpoint Charlie style. On the Chinese side came another 20 kilometers of D.M.Z.: minefields, row after row of razorwire, watchtowers, the dirt raked regularly in order to reveal the footsteps of would-be illegal immigrants. The Soviets had maintained similar fortifications along thousands of miles of its southern borders with nations like Iran, Afghanistan and China. As you’d guess, Soviet border controls were highly effective. They kept out unwanted intruders and imprisoned millions of would-be émigrés.
Why is it, then, that the wealthier and technologically sophisticated United States, can’t seal its much shorter border with Mexico — the source of 70 percent of its illegal immigrants? Because it doesn’t want to.
The I.N.S. estimates that there are about 9 million illegal immigrants, mostly Mexican, living and working in the United States. With about 300,000 more entering the country annually (not including migrant laborers who travel back and forth), a staggering 10 percent of the U.S. workforce is currently undocumented.
George W. Bush, master plagiarist of liberal catchphrases, says illegal immigrants “take the jobs that Americans won’t take.” A more accurate reading of the situation is that because these workers’ illegal status makes them vulnerable to exploitation, employers create jobs for them to take — while eliminating better jobs for Americans. Rapacious employers use illegals to fill two types of jobs: those that would otherwise go to Americans and those that exist only because it’s possible to pay slave wages. What would happen to the agricultural and garment sectors, which employ hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants in both categories, without illegal labor? Both industries would survive, though their bosses might have to make do without a Paris pied-à-terre.
“The only reason any job remains unfilled is because the wage is too low,” says Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich. “Require it to be filled with an American and employers have to raise the wage.”
Most employers don’t hire illegal workers. But they all benefit from the downward pressure illegal immigration puts on wages. It’s simple supply and demand: if we deported every undocumented worker, companies would be forced to increase pay at the bottom from sub-minimum- to minimum-wage levels. This would force employers to entice those currently working for the legal minimum wage with raises, and so on up the scale. Labor costs account for about two-thirds of the expenses of an average business. The last “reform” corporate America wants is a genuine crackdown on illegal immigration. And Congress, reliant on business for campaign contributions, isn’t about to start one.
Our borders are open on purpose. While 150,000 U.S. soldiers fight a useless war in Iraq, fewer than 2,000 I.N.S. agents patrol the Mexican and Canadian borders — 5,300 miles — combined. Hundreds of miles of border are unmarked by anything as formidable as a chain-link fence, much less the kind of we-mean-business fortifications built by the old U.S.S.R. Signs posted north of the San Diego-Tijuana crossing warn motorists to look out for Mexican families running across Interstate 5. Eleven states, recognizing the reality of the illegals in their midst, issue them driver’s licenses. Now the Bush administration, backed by big business, wants to tacitly endorse illegal immigration by granting existing undocumented workers “guest worker” status.
While we encourage illegal immigration, we’ve made it virtually impossible for a foreigner who dreams of becoming an American to do so legally. Legal immigration is limited to people who already have relatives here, are sponsored by an employer or are seeking political asylum from a tiny list of approved countries. Had these rules been enforced since 1776, there would be more Native Americans than any other variety.
A sane immigration policy would reverse these attitudes. We should welcome legal immigrants in much larger numbers. After all, America has always become culturally richer and economically more prosperous as the result of its hard-working newcomers. Legal immigration should become safe, legal and commonplace. At the same time, no nation worthy of the name can tolerate porous borders. We can and must seal our borders to prevent economic migrants, terrorists and others with unknown motives from entering the United States. It’s time to stop sucking up to big business.
The best weapon against terrorism: self-determination.
Globalists Destroying AmericaSaturday, Jan. 10, 2004 | News Max
Diane Alden |
"In the next century, nations as we know [them] will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all." – Strobe Talbot, President Clinton's deputy secretary of state, as quoted in Time, July 20, l992
The Washington Post reported on Dec. 19, 2003: "Lobbyists working with the White House said Bush is developing a plan that would allow immigrants to cross the border legally if jobs are waiting for them. The sources said the administration also wants to provide a way for some undocumented workers in the United States to move toward legal status.
Furthermore, Bush said at his year-end news conference last week that he was preparing to send Congress recommendations for an "immigration policy that helps match any willing employer with any willing employee." He said he is "firmly against blanket amnesty" or a mass legalization.
An estimated 8 million undocumented people live in the United States. At least half of them are Mexican, authorities have said.
The blanket amnesty is based on the notion that this will "help" immigrants, the economy and our relations with Mexico. It will allow Mexican workers to come and go across the border so they will not feel they must either stay in the U.S. forever lest they be caught and sent back.
The Bush administration points to how "well" the bracero worker program operated in the '40s, '50s and early '60s. In fact, it did not work well at all.
To burst that particular establishment bubble, one need only refer to the study that appeared in the November/December 2001 issue of Foreign Affairs magazine. A very complete summary of the "guest worker" programs of the past was compiled by Philip Martin, University California-Davis, and Michael Teitelbaum of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and was titled "The Mirage of Mexican Guest Workers." (80 Foreign Affairs No. 6 at 117) In that effort certain administration and ruling establishment myths are exploded.
Martin and Teitelbaum take a hard look at the last official U.S. guest-worker program for Mexicans, the bracero program of 1942-1964, which is being used as the basis for the current effort to legalize illegal resident "workers" in the U.S. In every way that matters the bracero worker program was a flop. It did nothing to curb illegal immigration, nor did it force the market to work better – and it did not force the society or economic situation of Mexico to improve. It also did not force productivity gains for U.S. agriculture, which would have been forced to mechanize and modernize as have the agriculture sectors of Australia and New Zealand.
In fact, when mechanization was attempted in tomato fields, California labor groups and activists such as Cesar Chavez fought it. For the most part those who came stayed, and they did not return to Mexico until the big roundup during the Eisenhower administration forced them to return.
Journalist Howard Sutherland, who keeps up on these pesky details that irk the cheap-labor lobby and the ruling establishment, writes: "Mechanical lettuce harvesters were under development in the 1960s. That work was stopped. Today, lettuce is still harvested by hand in the field."
The bracero program also skewed the "free" market. It did nothing to allow business interests to adjust to paying higher wages or becoming more productive through mechanization. Instead it encouraged unrestricted, massive, illegal immigration, which flooded the market with more people at the expense of American workers, productivity gains through innovation, and the advancement of the nation and economy in general.
According to Sutherland, the Sloane study also reveals: "In 1960 some 45,000 farm workers (mostly braceros) had harvested 2.2 million tons of processing tomatoes. By 1999, it took only 5,000 workers to operate machinery that harvested some 12 million tons. Thanks to the efficiency gains from mechanization, the real price of processing tomatoes declined 54 percent while per capita consumption rose 23 percent."
In fact, during the bracero program, which ran from 1942 to 1964, the
number of illegals crossing the border expanded in the same proportion as
the number of "legal" or authorized or permitted workers. Illegal
immigration accelerated after the program and skewed the "free" market by
tipping the balance in favor of cheap labor advocates and capital.
Meanwhile, the outlet offered by the United States disallowed much-needed
economic and social change and reform down Mexico way.
Defending Myths, Half-truths and Lies
The problem with skewing the "free" market in favor of our new unhappy sweatshop lords is that mass immigration – or, rather, migration – has acted to depress U.S. wages and benefits of the lower class, particularly minority groups on welfare, and previous influx of immigrants. (George Borjas, http://www.ksg.harvard.edu/gborjas)
A Harvard labor economist and an immigrant himself, George Borjas writes in a recent paper:
"The relative entry wage of successive immigrant cohorts declined by 9 percent in the 1970s, and by an additional 6 percent in the 1980s. Although the relative wage of immigrants grows by 10 percent during the first two decades after arrival, the relative wage of post-1970 immigrants will remain 15 to 20 percent below those of natives throughout much of their working lives."
Don’t forget that the last time there was immigration “reform,” in 1986, illegals were granted amnesty, the floodgates did not close, and immigrant and lower-class wages did not rise in comparison with those of other groups of Americans.
If that is not manipulation of the "free" market, nothing is. Nonetheless, "free" market outfits and think tanks like Cato and Heritage promote amnesty and open borders, seemingly unconcerned for the impact that has on national stability, cohesion and maintenance of the Republic.
The wellbeing of poor Mexicans has zero to do with any of this. It has a lot to do with manipulating the working place in favor of one interest or another.
Blind to the fact that even after generations, immigrants or ethnic bloc voting continues in many areas of the country, establishment Republicans or Libertarians have never known a failed concept they haven't clung to. Do not confuse them with the facts. Invariably, ethnic voting blocs vote for Democrats, by a standard 70 percent to 30 percent margin, with a few points difference here and there. Funny thing: The Republican who received more Hispanic votes than any other Republican in history was Ronald Reagan.
Ethnic groups vote for Democrats because it is Democrats who promise the most. Democrats offer the most in the form of government programs, minority preferences and perks; thus they get into office in areas of high ethnicity. That has been the case in California, Texas, New Mexico and Florida. It is just as true in old ethnic areas such as northern Minnesota, Central Wisconsin, Buffalo, Chicago or any large urban area where ethnic voting blocs remain.
Oh well, there are none so blind as a Republican or Libertarian stuck in the past hanging onto failed mythology, like a 4-year-old clinging to his Teddy bear.
The BIG argument and myth, of course, is that the illegals take jobs Americans don't want. The current argument is that if 8 million to 14 million illegals are forced to go back to Mexico, the country will fall apart. Horse hockey.
The country will adjust, and so will Mexico. We will have to and so will they and so will our elites. We might even see a resurgence of job creation and higher wages for blue collar and lower class minorities because unrestricted cheap labor will not be available. We might see productivity gains if some industries are forced to mechanize and adapt.
However, this amnesty and jerking us around aren’t about truth, what works, law, national identity or cohesion or the "free market." This is about power brokers doing what they damn well please no matter what the rest of the U.S. wants. They will do what they please for short-term economic or political gain, which in fact acts to destroy us in the process.
After the Cold War, that elite decided "harmonization of economies" and rise of "trading states" was the U.S. policy. By God, whether or not it works or we, the people want it, we are stuck with it. Legalization of illegals, a dumbed-down populace, "resident" status over citizenship, bad court decisions, continued end runs around the Constitution are all part and parcel of "harmonization of economies." It is also part of deconstructing nation-states.
Free-market theory is used and abused by the ruling establishment, and in their hands it has become a load of fertilizer.
When the market is really free, it adjusts. When it is really free, transnational corporations and entrenched insider bureaucrats like Robert Zoellick cannot centrally plan benefit for transnational investment capital over U.S. labor or our economic or political self-interest.
When the market is really free, wages are allowed to rise as the supply
of labor becomes scarce or otherwise employed. When the market is FREE,
unproductive areas of the economy become productive through mechanization
and technology, or they adapt or disappear.
Central Planning for Utopia
Since World War II, the ruling establishment, the power nexus in New York/D.C. and now Davos/London/Brussels have been allowed to centrally plan economies and call it the "free" market. Out of utopian notions held by the elites, and which evolved out of World War II, came Bretton Woods and Dumbarton Oaks. Utopians all, they stuck us with the U.N., IMF, GATT, the World Bank, the WTO and NAFTA, CAFTA, FTAA.
To add to our misery index, since the end of the Cold War and the demise of Soviet-style communism, that same ruling establishment discovered that corporate interests and U.S. political, spiritual, cultural and economic interests are no longer one and the same.
So it is the ruling elite, which manages to get around the U.S. Constitution, Congress and the states, screws with the free market to the disintegration of our society and nation-state.
If keeping wages depressed by changing the rules in favor of those who want cheap labor is the free market, then the ruling establishment, including some Republicans, are doing what the left is so good at: the manipulation and recalculation of the language.
In fact, according to the law of supply and demand, when the market is working freely, there will be no dearth of American workers to take jobs in hotels, restaurants or fields on U.S. farms or at meat-packing plants. At present there is no deficiency of American workers in places like Duluth, Minn., or Pierre, S.D., to staff the Holiday Inn or the Waffle House. The market adjusts when the ruling establishment and government keep their manipulative proboscises out of it.
American "free trade" zealots and George Bush might regard what happened when Australia was forced to deal with an agricultural labor shortage. They had to mechanize. Thus, Australian agriculture increased its productivity in healthy ways. That also allowed Australia to maintain the rule of law, its own borders, who would be allowed into the country and who would not.
That happenstance supports national sovereignty and identity. An entire nation did not have to pay the price of dislocation and deconstruction in order to provide votes or cheap labor for the ruling class.
The current situation may benefit the cheap-labor lobby, Democrats OR Republicans who only see a voting bloc, but it is a terrible way to run a country.
It is destructive of societal cohesion and growth; it is expanded government that has allowed another victim or dependent class to remain in poverty and at the mercy of employers, the criminal class, lawyers and the state.
Furthermore, contrary to propagandists of the left, right and libertarian, the nature of immigration is not the same as that of the era from 1885-1920. The current situation largely benefits immigration lawyers and judges, who make big bucks from it. It expands government welfare programs and special education programs and adds immensely to the tax burden. It gives power to large urban areas over rural areas. Rotten boroughs are the result and loss of power to the several states is a foregone conclusion.
Dozens of studies also indicate that illegal and legal immigration have added to the tax burden and pile on to the infrastructure nationally, particularly in border states like California, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico – and, increasingly, Georgia, Illinois and the Carolinas.
In California, the burden of illegal immigration added at least $1,700 in taxes, fees or costs for each legal citizen.
If we really wanted to learn from history, we would acknowledge that the black market and the migration of Mexicans north would continue regardless of legalization of illegals in 2004. That was the case after the last great immigration "reform" in 1986 and it will be so now. The Bush administration can continue to live in its dream world, but the rest of America cannot afford that luxury. That is, if we want to remain an advanced economy and civilization.
Trouble is the powers that be, Democrats and establishment Republicans, don't like it when wages and benefits must rise to accommodate labor. Democrats prefer more government programs, adding bureaucracies and reasons to get elected.
Meanwhile, establishment Republicans prefer to mess with the "free" market and accommodate transnational or the cheap-labor lobby for jobs on the lower end of the economic scale. In the last few years, that cheap-labor lobby has expanded its control to high-tech jobs through misuse of the H-1B and L-1 visas. The visa system as a whole is a subsidy for transnational corporate interests, which further skew the “free” market.
Together, the new central plan from establishment Democrats and
Republicans is a borderless world, the growth of the state, mass migration
of people, cheap labor, and power in the hands of unelected elites and
bureaucracies and an end to the nation-state. That is their tragedy and
Great White Father Speaks With Forked Tongue
On Dec. 4, 2003, President George Bush decided to acquiesce to the World Trade Organization. His administration gave in to the subsidized mercantilists of the European Union and Japan, China and the WTO on steel tariffs. President Bush claims he just wanted to avoid a trade war and live up to our trade agreements. These agreements, of course, were cobbled together by central planners called globalists. As a great joke on all of us, some of them also incorrectly call themselves "free traders."
In 1992, former Citicorp chairman Walter Wriston published "The Twilight of Sovereignty." It was a foreshadowing of things to come for the United States. He claimed: "A truly global economy will require ... compromises of national sovereignty. ... There is no escaping the system."
On July 18, 1993, globalist Henry Kissinger said in the Los Angeles Times, concerning NAFTA: "What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system ... a first step toward a new world order."
Whatever they call themselves, in 1994 this particular branch of our feckless ruling establishment moved heaven and earth to get around the U.S. Constitution. It did so when it climbed over the dying body that is the power of Congress to make treaties, including treaties on issues of money and trade.
Nonetheless, the globalist duo of Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich, along with complicit Republicans and Democrats, rammed the World Trade Organization agreement through a lame duck Democratic Congress. Like NAFTA before it, the powers that be gave away the national store. They gave it away to an unaccountable, unelected supranational body, the World Trade Organization.
That same faithless establishment forgot to remember that only Congress has the power to make treaties, raise taxes, print money and more or less promote the best interests of the economic and monetary system of the United States. In effect, they rewrote the U.S. Constitution.
The current trading czar, Robert Zoellick, is part of that feckless establishment. Like a thousand guys before, he is the quintessential insider. As a member of the Bush I State Department, Zoellick along with his mentor James Baker III, are either dumb, stuck in dogma or know exactly what they are doing. I prefer the latter explanation; it makes more sense.
After the Cold War, they were part and parcel of the crew that sought to advance foreign policy and trade policy in the post-World War II world for benefit of the elites. On occasion, their benefit and that of the rest of us coincided.
Among the international geopolitical/economic wheelers and dealers, Zoellick was a top dog in NAFTA negotiations. He helped design and carry out United States policy on German reunification a decade ago. He also helped start NAFTA negotiations from his post in the State Department. ("Bush Seeking to Overhaul Policy Making," by Joseph Kahn and Frank Bruni, New York Times, 1/6/2001, p. B14)
He is also a board member of the German Marshall Fund of the United States. Nice, considering that German interests now own half the publishing houses in the U.S. and increasing amounts of the electronic media. The fact is if our feckless elites continue down this road, at some point membership in the WTO, for instance, will coerce and censor what is and is not allowed in the media. Since the WTO, for instance, the FCC has established that WTO membership and "the public interest" are the primary criteria for evaluating purchases of American telecommunications
Thanks to this untrustworthy elite, we now have two screwy cadres and faceless bureaucracies to worry about: national and international. The entire cabal continues to centrally plan our economic, political, social and philosophical future. Trouble is, it is making us a less independent, less advanced, less innovative, less cohesive, less creative nation, which at some point will shut up dissident voices that point all this out.
Lucky for us, there was a time in the post-World War II era that the ruling establishment was forced to take into account the best interests of the entire nation.
After the Cold War, however, that same elite decided to re-create the United States and its people and the Western Hemisphere into a collective global player. The rise of "trading states" and regions was to be the wave of the future. In the name of "harmonizing" economies we get an economic central plan, along with NAFTA, CAFTA and the WTO – in other words, an economic central plan with a smiley face. Therefore, it is easier to say we can’t control our borders and offer amnesty than to prevent "harmonization of economies" and loss of national sovereignty.
What should blow our minds and indicate where this feckless elite is coming from is that in December of 2003, two weeks after caving in to WTO demands on steel tariffs, free marketer George Bush sent the world another message. Very correctly, he informed the whining WTO and European Union that as far as their economic interests in Iraq go, they could take a flying leap. In his words, "I will talk to my lawyers about it."
In that instance, George Bush acted the way the president of an independent nation should act. Whenever he informs supranational busybodies like the WTO or the UN. that American blood, treasure and sweat will benefit the United States, he is a U.S. president. When he includes supportive allies, business and trade interests in any dealings or benefits that might come out of rebuilding Iraq, he acts responsibly. In those moments, George Bush becomes the leader of the United States, a sovereign nation dealing with other sovereign nations. He wisely puts aside the elitist notion, which is simply a pale re-creation of the role as a corporate head or CEO of a "trading state."
We need a president, a leader and a protector of the Constitution, of our security and, most of all, our interests as a sovereign state. We absolutely do not need another bank president, corporate head, lawyer and Third Way game player like Bill Clinton or Newt Gingrich or Robert Zoellick.
We are suicidal if we continue to turn over our liberty, power and advancement to an elitist club of global political and financial powerbrokers as we have been doing, particularly since the early '90s.
One might also remind the faithless game players and globalists that Sept. 11, 2001, was a shot across the American bow. It was a reminder to the central planners that man proposes, God disposes, and the best-laid elitist plans of mice and men go oft astray.
Isn't it amazing how often history and human nature throw the ideas and agenda of central planners, utopians and globalists – our own Napoleons – into the ash heap of history where they belong. God is good.
As it is, our faithless establishment needs to be reminded that only Congress has the power to make treaties, raise taxes, print money and raise funds. It is not the job of the ruling elite to scam the system or the citizenry or find loopholes in the U.S. Constitution to achieve their ends. That is true in "trade agreements" or immigration policy or on a host of other issues.
That same establishment also needs to dispossess itself of the notion that it can create its own constitutional system, apart from the one we have. It is doing so through the judicial oligarchy and through rewriting the U.S. Constitution one court decision at a time.
Unless that ruling establishment wants a revolution on its hands, it
needs to get its elitist head out of its own dark orifices. Otherwise do us
a favor: Get the passports and plane tickets and climb aboard the next
flights out to Davis or Brussels or the Bahamas. Run the world elsewhere and
stop destroying ours.
Lives, Fortunes and Sacred Honor
Our nation was bought at the price of blood, sacrifice, sweat and tears and not for the benefit of unelected or ELECTED elites. It was formed by good men, using good ideas and fine instincts, in a hot room in Philadelphia in 1776.
Although they won't tell the truth about what they are doing, nonetheless our current ruling establishment is deconstructing us one immigration policy, one bad education idea, one court decision, one economic or trade agreement at a time.
They simply call it free trade, free market, the visa system, amnesty for illegals, multiculturalism, judicial review, diversity or "international cooperation." Meanwhile, they betray the philosophical, social, spiritual and cultural necessities of the nation-state called America. That is accurate whether they call themselves Republicans or Democrats.
We could all be hopeful for the future if the Bushites got religion and actually absorbed the absolute necessity for the U.S. to remain a cohesive nation in the face of international barbarity, stupidity, ignorance, tyranny and economic double dealing.
We got close to finding our souls again after Sept. 11, 2001. Since then we are slipping faster and faster into adoption and acceptance of various worldwide unaccountable bureaucracies and faceless bureaucrats of the "New World Order."
The War on the U.S.
Economic warfare against the United States will continue as long as mercantilist, protectionist nations can still sell to us, hang onto markets, erode any edge we have in technology, steal what they can't buy, and suck U.S. investment money for their advancement. As long as the ruling establishment negotiates bad trade agreements and joins supranational collectives we will decline economically and politically.
Economic warfare will go on with no end in sight unless our ruling establishment gets a grip and soon. If we continue to operate through guys like Robert Zoellnik or the U.S. State and Commerce departments, we are doomed. If the FCC thinks nothing of allowing foreign ownership of media, just wait for a WTO decision to silence that media.
John Blair, former chief economist for the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Anti-Trust and Monopoly, stated the situation fairly well: "To ignore the pivotal role played by particular individuals who are in positions of power is to do violence to historical accuracy. A recognition that the course of economic events can be influenced by individuals who have the imagination and the power to take advantage of prevailing conditions does not constitute acceptance of a 'conspiracy' theory of history." The ruling establishment; left, right and libertarian, have forgotten the words of Teddy Roosevelt:
"Great corporations exist only because they are created and safeguarded by our institutions; and it is therefore our right and our duty to see that they work in harmony with those institutions. (T. Roosevelt, 1901, first annual message to Congress)
It is also tragic that we no longer produce a great noble class of American elites. Their arrogance and globalist insanity goes back to the late 19th century and continues to impact all of us today.
They have become more venal and self-serving in recent years. Having given over our institutions to cultural Marxists in the '60s, almost as readily they hand over our economic and political future to supranational unelected bureaucracies today.
Don't look for another Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan or JFK to stem the tide. Forget the honesty of a Truman or Eisenhower to call a spade a spade. Our current crop of elite are a mediocre blend of the deaf, dumb and blind.
Christian poet G. K. Chesterton called them what they are: "The New Unhappy Lords."
They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger and honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs.
