Mass Immigration Harms American Workers



Mass Immigration Harms American Workers

“The Washington Post was shocked around Thanksgiving to find that Americans are suffering from unemployment, tenuous job security and a shaky economic future. But its compelling vignette of a collapsing country and a desperate people ignores the driving factor behind America’s decline — mass immigration and its devastating effects on American workers,” says Donald Collins in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

“We who seek rational immigration owe The Post our gratitude, as it has informed us about the fundamental choice in the immigration debate: more profits for the likes of Sheldon Adelson and Mark Zuckerberg — or a chance for John Stewart and millions more of our fellow citizens to live like human beings.”

Steve Case Says More Immigration Will Help Middle Class

“Middle class Americans face a tough future because robots and machinery are eliminating their jobs, according to Steve Case, an entrepreneur who earned roughly $1 billion by creating the first successful internet firm, America Online. But Congress could help the situation by passing an immigration bill that would import some foreign entrepreneurs and almost 30 million low-skilled workers over the next decade, Case told an audience of D.C. lobbyists and lawyers gathered on Tuesday by the business-backed Bipartisan Policy Center,” Fox News says.

    the liberals say lets raise the minimum wage at the same time lets bring in 30 million more immigrants don’t understand the logic.

    The conservatives say let’s don’t rise the minimum wage which means millions of illegal immigrants keep their jobs. Half of conservatives opposed e-verify or some sort of ID to stop illegal immigrants. In fact 12 an hour will destroy thousands of maids jobs and fast food jobs to robots which will reduce the staff.

    Wrong argument business does not care about Americans. Tell business that farm work, cleaning and dry walling illegal immigrants is more expensive than robots or automation, then the business interest will dropped them like hot potatoes. Service work needs to go to robots like manufacturing. In manufacturing because of outsourcing and automaton, machinist are needed more than assemblers. In fact Los Angeles used to have thousands of illegal immigrants doing assembly work in the garment industry or the electrics industry about 20 years ago. Those jobs were shipped to China or Mexico and many illegals switched to the service jobs. In Europe there are restaurants that sometimes have robots same as in Japan. Fast food in Europe all have Kiosks machines. Bring up stats where cleaning jobs will dropped by 25 percent by 2025 if robots are use. That fast food and restaurant workers will be cut by 10 to 30 percent because of kiosks and automation or some robot use. In 2025 about 2 million illegal immigrants in California will be unemployed robots will replace day laborers and landscaping workers and so forth. In Texas about 1.5 million will become unemployed.

    Mass Immigration Threatens the Foreign Controlled Companies and Its Rich Elite Too

    Ask the foreign influenced CEOs of these American [?] companies how a $35K income living in poverty level in i.e.,San Franciso’s high cost of rent/mortgage is gonna afford anything substantial anymore from them; especially as we pour more and more overpopulation gasoliTOTALLY worsening this raging economic wage deterioration fire.

    The law of supply and demand has not changed, nor will it ever. Allowing business to import “30 million low-skilled workers over the next decade” does nothing but lower wages for American citizens. Those admitted don’t care, because for most of them it is way better to be here, low wages or not. But Americans cannot live a decent lifestyle on what these corporations want to pay. Why do working people listen to billionaires with a financial self interest in increasing mass immigration.
