Or perhaps a double air kiss with confirmed swine flu immigrants.
Hm. We'll see.
It's not that I don't support immigration. It's just that there are laws that should be followed for the health of the country, laws that Obama rejects or refuses to see.
We have laws for a reason, one of which is to keep out diseases and another of which is to bolster a currently fragile economy that Obama seems intent on ruining.
With this in mind, the Washington Times notes today that all job gains since 2000 have benefited immigrants:
Nearly 6 million more people are working in the U.S. now than in 2000, but the number of native-born Americans holding jobs has declined slightly, from 114.8 million to 114.7 million, according to census figures crunched by CIS. Instead, all of that job growth — a total of 5.7 million — has gone to immigrants.This is one reason the Chamber of Commerce is pushing hard for immigration reform: they want cheaper labor.
But where are the unions? They've changed opinions, claiming now that immigration reform would flood their establishments with new members and that wages in general would go up.
One wonders at the "logic" of this "reasoning."
