Whose jobs will they take? Those Dreamers. The illegal aliens being illegally handed de facto amnesty (and work permits) by President Barack Hussein Obama II, in apparent violation of his oath of office, according to Judicial Watch and Representative Steven King. As many as 1.7 MILLION of them, according to a conservative estimate by the Pew Center. There could be millions more, because there seems to be no way to prevent fraud, perhaps by design, as suggested by some ICE officers. Whose jobs will they take?
Their jobs! To focus on a constituency that likely voted for Obama in 2008 and may plan to vote for him again.
In July 2012, unemployment among black teens stood at an astounding 39.3%. What has Obama done to help black teens find jobs? Anything? Nope.
He gave amnesty to 1.7+ MILLION illegal aliens so that they can compete for jobs with U.S. citizens! Among these citizens are many black teenagers who already sufferer from an astonishingly high unemployment rate. Just what they need: More competition for those scarce jobs.
Illegal aliens will also take jobs from white teenagers: their unemployment rate stands at 20.9%. Currently, the unemployment rate for all teens is 23.8%.
Because this amnesty applies to individuals up to age 30, these illegal aliens will also take jobs from many other unemployed U.S. citizens. I found nothing in their policy requiring employers to defer to U.S. citizens when hiring, something which would seem to be a no-brainer. It’s far more likely that if an employer should “discriminate” against any of these illegal alien “dreamers” when hiring, the Department of Justice under Eric Holder will be ready, willing, and able to file a lawsuit on their behalf.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics places the unemployment rate for all workers at 8.3%; for all black workers at 14.1%; and for all workers over age 25 with a high school diploma or its equivalency (but no college) at 8.7%.
Therefore, all U.S. CITIZENS will be at a disadvantage when competing for jobs with these ILLEGAL ALIENS.
Just days ago, Representative Lamar Smith and Senator Charles Grassley wrote to Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) [emphasis added]:
These illegal workers will compete for scarce jobs in difficult economic times with Americans who need to provide for their families. The Department has indicated that it may also grant relief to illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. illegally. These parents will not be penalized for breaking the law when helping their illegal immigrant children apply for this new immigration benefit, and in turn, may also be allowed to work and compete with unemployed Americans. …
This administration will undoubtedly preside over one of the most fraud-ridden immigration programs in our history. Illegal immigrants will be eager to purchase or create fake documents showing that they arrived in the United States before the age of 16 and meet the continued physical presence requirements. DHS will be sorely taxed by the burden of disproving the evidence presented in each application.
Smith and Grassley challenged Napolitano to provide information about how she plans to prevent fraud in this program. They should have also addressed the question of how the DHS intends to prevent voter fraud in the next election, if this amnesty gives identification papers to illegal aliens who may then use those same ID’s to register and to vote. No doubt, this is ALSO part of the design.
Will databases be shared across local, state, and federal governments? Given the lack of transparency characteristic of this administration and given their penchant for doing an end run around the law and the Constitution, my guess would be,
No way, Jose.
Even Obama knows that this amnesty is not within his legal powers to grant. How do we know this? His own words to LaRaza:
The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting, I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works.
Will all United States citizens, regardless of race, color, or creed, come together in November to choose a president who will respect the laws, the Constitution, our borders, and give sole allegiance to the CITIZENS of the United States of America?
We hope and pray that it will be so.
