Illegal Aliens Taking U.S. Jobs

Illegal Aliens Taking U.S. Jobs

December 22th, 2011

Illegal aliens come to the United States to take jobs that offer them greater opportunity, and they are often welcomed by U.S. employers who are able to hire them for wages lower than they would have to pay to hire U.S. workers. This employment is illegal under a law enacted in 1986, but some employers ignore the law and hire illegal workers in the underground economy. Others simply accept fake employment documents and hire the illegal workers as if they were legal. Because there is no requirement to verify documents presented by workers, employers can easily evade compliance.

The illegal alien workers are mostly persons who sneaked into the country – nearly all Mexicans or Central Americans who enter from Mexico. There is also, however, illegal entry across the border with Canada, with apprehensions by the Border Patrol of more than 6,000 aliens in 2010. There is also a significant portion of the illegal alien population that arrives with visas and stays illegally. These ‘overstayers’ are estimated variously to between one- third and 40 percent of the illegal alien population.

The defenders of illegal aliens – ethnic advocacy groups, employer groups, and church-based groups – often assert that illegal aliens only take jobs unwanted by U.S. workers. This is patently false because they are working in jobs in which U.S. workers are also employed – whether in construction, agricultural harvesting or service professions. MORE

L.A. police chief wants special treatment for illegal alien drivers

December 28th, 2011

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck proposed the change to end what he feels is an unfair burden being placed on illegal aliens since they account for most the of the drivers whose vehicles are impounded under the current policy. On Tuesday, Chief Beck told the L.A. Times: “It’s a fairness issue. There is a vast difference between someone driving without a license because they cannot legally be issued one and someone driving after having their license revoked.”

Beck went on to describe illegal aliens living in Los Angeles as people “who are a valuable asset to our community and who have very limited resources.” L.A.’s police union stands in opposition to the proposed change and has harshly criticized Chief Beck and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for political pandering at the expense of public safety.

In July, the Denver city council voted to overturn a voter-approved ordinance which impounded the vehicles of unlicensed drivers, and had been responsible for taking a large number of illegal aliens off Denver’s streets. The council voted 9-1 to repeal the law known as Initiative 100. Of course, both Los Angeles and Denver are well known ’sanctuary cities’ for illegal aliens. Story.

D.A. King : Prediction – Media in New Year will continue to ignore fact that enforcement works

At the end of an other year of federal government sanctioned colonization of America by millions of resentful illegal aliens, some predictions and observations for 2012 involving the organized crime of illegal immigration.

Prediction: Agenda-driven pollsters will continue to attempt to sway public opinion on what should be done with the millions of illegals who have created a massive, well-funded, bi-partisan and liberal media-backed defense force against deportation — the punishment for unauthorized presence in the USA.

Consider the ubiquitous campaign-driven “scientific immigration polls” containing questions that perpetuate the straw man argument that since it would be (regrettably) difficult to deport every illegal by sundown tomorrow, the only other option must be to begin another massive legalization. These skewed polls intentionally omit the proven and recognized effective reasonable solution called “attrition through enforcement.”

This concept — repeatedly presented in this space for nearly a decade and proven successful each time a state passes an immigration enforcement law — acknowledges that it took more than 30 years for the current national-suicide crisis to develop and that there is no magical overnight remedy. It could take 30 years to fully solve.

Gradual attrition of the illegal population through enforcement of the law is the logical and reasonable third choice Americans are not supposed to ever consider. Especially in an election season poll.

Predictions within a prediction: The media will continue to hide that fact that nearly half of the insurgent illegal aliens currently in the United States did not arrive here illegally. They came on legal tourist visas and refused to leave. The media — and the candidates — will fail to make the fact that we have no dependable system in place to monitor visa-holder departures a campaign issue.

Attrition through enforcement recognizes that border security and law enforcement is a fundamental duty of the federal government and is not a campaign bargaining chip. And that like all criminals, illegals flee enforcement.  More
