Schumer Working to Build Left-Wall Street Coalition to Leave Americans out in the Cold



Keep a close eye on Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and his Judiciary subcommittee next week. He’s leading the charge to reunify a sinister coalition that brings “cheap labor” Wall Street interests in league with radical-left groups opposed to all immigration controls. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg – a key Schumer ally – is working to build the business wing of a reunited coalition. Next week, the loquacious senator is holding a hearing to try to sell Americans on the idea that we need immigration to create jobs, continuing a trend among America’s elites to virtually write off the future of the U.S. labor force. According to Politico:

“Schumer is calling in business leaders to talk about the need for more highly skilled workers and mayors whose local economies have benefited from an influx of lower-skilled immigrants. The witnesses includes NASDAQ chief Robert Greifield, Cornell University President David Skorton, Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith, and Amgen medical director Puneet Arora, who is testifying in his role as a leader of Immigration Voice, which favors boosting legal immigration of high-skilled workers. The second panel will include testimony from the mayors of Utica, N.Y., Lewiston, Maine, and Uvalda, Ga.”

My take on this: The left has never been able to advance a mass immigration bill without support from business groups. Notwithstanding the poor economic and fiscal situation facing the nation, we’re now being asked to accept additional labor market competition in ways that, while advancing the private and political interests of the few, will prove socially destabilizing for the nation at large.

    Dear Sen. Schumer. NO AMNESTY PERIOD. wE HAVE TOO MANY ILLEGAL WORKING AND NOT PAYING TAXES. mANY AMERICAN BORN HARDWORKING TAX PAYERS DO NOT GET ALL THE BENEFITS THAT ILLEGALS GET. WE COULD SAVE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS BY DEPORTING THEM. SOME OF THEM ARE CRIMINALS AND COST NEW YORK 5.4 BILLION A YEAR IN FREE LAWYERS AND TRANSLATERS. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. DO THE RIGHT THING FOR THE THOUSANDS OF LEGAL AMERICANS WHO HAVE NO JOBS. STOP THINKING LIKE A REPULICAN.

    There is no immigration reform needed. We have Laws on the books now that are not being enforced. Secure the Borders, and deport all the Illegals. These illegals are felons- they entered the Country illegally.
    Enforce the laws!

    When are you the People of New York going to get tired of being cheated by Illegal Immigrants. Politicians like Schumer and Bloomberg keep you in the dark to what they are doing to you. This is your Country and State , wake up before you get cheated any more by an illegal.

    I guess since many Politicians break the law some of them feel that they should not stop illegal immigration. And if some are criminals and pedophiles; like the one that was areested here in the Mansfield PA area, too bad. Senator Shummer if your child broke the law, you can bet he/she would be arrested and might go to jail. But then, maybe not. After all, it is only the average who this happens to.

    After 30 years of a huge influx of illegals + 5x the traditional legal immigration rate we do not have much time left before Americans will have no say. The politicians have disregarded the will of the people for as long as I can remember. I personally believe they have destroyed America in the hope that a huge population could keep their socialist ponzi schemes from collapsing.

    Schumer & Bloomberg don’t give a damn about our country. They should be kicked out of this country and never to be let back in. They are Traitors as much as Jane Fonda and Obama.

    BTW, Schumer, don’t look for any help from “Tricky Dick” Lugar. He’s shot his last salvo in Indy. As of the May primary next year, Lugar will be history.

      Hope you are right, Ron. Am finding the support for Dick Lugar runs deep among the older group who do not keep up with his antics. Also he has a very large war chest and is outraiding his opponent 2:1 – is trying to suck all the $$$ out before the primary gets underway Then there is the strong possiblilty of Dims crossing over to vote for him in the primary. He is the best RINO PBO has!!

    These are the type of people that should not be elected to any responsible office in our government, nor should their advice be followed, and it does make one consider how did they make their money. They have implied by their actions that it was not by giving fair, living wages to the lowest positions which do most of the labor intensive work. Citizens stay on top of things–read, write, call, e-mail, FAX and if you can demonstrate. God Bless America please.

    The democrats will try every trick in the book to give illigeals amnesty. One of the major problems is we HAVE TOO MUCH LEGAL immigration to go along with the illigeal stuff.You can’t trust the democrats or Bloomberg they are all NO GOOD RATS !

    I believe that this is the end of AMERICA.
    This Government will not be satisfied until
    America is a” third world country”.
    That is” spreading the wealth”,
    in a GLOBAL WORLD .
    We have extreme terrorist, ON THE INSIDE.
    It is called the “United States Government”.

      It is fascinating and horrifying how abstracted, muzzy-headed democrats wind up teaming up with hard-headed, greedy, republicans to screw us into the ground with more unwanted illegals.
