Agencies in both
the Clinton and Obama administrations have stated that mass immigration - legal not counting illegal - is lowering American wages and increasing American unemployment and harming the most vulnerable. This shouldn't take a degree in rocket science to notice. How do American workers benefit when historically high-paying jobs such as manufacturing are sent to China and cheaper labor is brought from Mexico and elsewhere?
My stance on mass migration hasn't changed one lick from when it formed when I was a Marxist. It damages the countries migrants leave and it damages the countries they migrate to. Needed brains and hands are leaving nations that need them to travel thousands of miles to be exploited for cheap labor and super profit. Period.
Clinton's Jordan Commission on immigration
came out to REDUCING legal immigration levels and enforcing the border. Both are called "radical," "racist," and "xenophobic" today, so I guess Bill Clinton's Democratic black lesbian feminist Congresswoman Barbara Jordan was both of those?
The xenophobic, racist black Democrat lesbian feminist also stated with regard to amnesty that,
The legalized have already received special treatment in obtaining amnesty. To further reward their earlier illegal entry by giving equal or higher priority to the entry of their relatives sends the wrong message at a time in which the U.S. must obtain greater control over unauthorized entry.
And God forbid,
Employers should demonstrate that they have engaged in appropriate attempts to find a qualified U.S. worker using normal company recruitment procedures that meet industry-wide standards and offering wages that are at least 5 percent above the prevailing wage.
AND now we have the Obama administration's Congressional Budget Office and Joint Committee on Taxation
release a report that the "gang of 8" amnesty (which IS what it is) would screw over American workers --
Taking into account all of those flows of new immigrants, CBO and JCT expect that a greater number of immigrants with lower skills than with higher skills would be added to the workforce, slightly pushing down the average wage for the labor force as a whole, other things being equal...
Such grant of legal status will likely disproportionately harm lower-skilled African-Americans by making it more difficult for them to obtain employment and depressing their wages when they do obtain employment.
Ach! And guess what? It's happening in Canada, too.
DUH really? We have to be told the flipping OBVIOUS?
from your link:
"Use of fences to reduce border violence and facilitate enforcement.
However, the Commission does not support the erection
of extraordinary physical barriers, such as unscaleable
walls, unless needed as a last resort to stop violence when
other means have proved ineffective.
Fences have been used
effectively in San Diego to reduce border violence, deter illegal
aliens from running across the interstate highway"
As for the gang of 8 doomsday scenario:
First – what does the CBO report actually say about wages? The headline conclusion is that wages would be 0.1 percent lower in 2023 but 0.5 percent higher in 2033 than under current law:
