In my work, I interview leaders, followers and innovators across America concerning the plight of immigration and overpopulation. A national audience writes in with stories, frustrations and anger at what’s happening to our country.
Last week, Henri from Connecticut asked, “Why is our Congress importing an endless line of cheap labor into our country to create unfair competition against our own citizens?” That question stuck in my craw. It ripped up my spine. It sank into the pit of my stomach.
Why would our own U.S. senators stand around picking their noses while our country suffers an invasion of cheap, pliant, 21st century slave labor? Why over one million H-1B, H-2B, L-1 and other visas that displace Americans? Why would that same Congress outsource, insource and offshore millions of American jobs?
All the while, you and I pay billions for food and housing for a half million illegal alien convicted felons in our prisons! They wouldn’t be there in the first place if our Congress fulfilled its job! Why would our Congress allow illegal aliens and legal immigrants to send $80 billion cash transfers a year back to their home countries when they know it drains our economy? And, our Congress does it knowing full well, as reported by the 2005 Bear-Stearns Report, that $401 billion annually goes uncollected in IRS income tax because illegals work off the books in the second largest underground economy in the world. Why would they transfer all our manufacturing jobs to China, India and Mexico to leave over three million Americans gasping from job losses? Why would they allow 1,000 jobs a week to leave Michigan’s manufacturing sector?
Last week, President Bush signed a bill to raise our federal debt ceiling to nearly $10 trillion. We already stand neck deep in $8.7 trillion debt! So why flood us with the world’s poor? Why eradicate our own working poor? Why drive our tradesman, construction jobs, roofers, fast food and truck drivers into a spiraling financial cesspool? Our cab drivers in the United States do not come from our country anymore. They displace American cabbies. Instead of making loans to African Americans to buy motels nationwide, our government gives loans to Asian Indians that now dominate all our motel chains. Once they establish one motel, they give it to their chain-migrated cousins and take another loan to buy another motel.
Our own government leaves our citizens in the lurch. Are they incompetent? Do men like Harry Reid, John McCain, Jon Kyle, Wayne Allard, Teddy Kennedy, Arlene Specter, Chris Cannon, Mel Martinez, Dick Durbin, Barrack Obama, Chris Dodd and the majority of senators understand their actions? Their results? Do they care what happens to each of us Americans on a personal or collective level?
Sad answer: not a twit!
Their actions speak long after their bombastic rhetoric. What’s happening in the United States stems from a long-term plan to downgrade our middle class into a new powerless and marginal class. Everyone scrapes by in this New World Order! The rich and privileged sit above it all. These helmsmen with Titanic-like credentials drive our nation into a future wrought with the same kind of poverty manifested in Mexico.
Do you notice that poverty never changes in Mexico, Central and South America?
