According to NumbersUSA, the Obama stimulus package will not reduce joblessness in America.
“In fact, Mr. Obama’s economic advisors admit that even if the Obama plan is enacted, the U.S unemployment rate is UNLIKELY to decrease in the next two years (they predict a peak unemployment rate of almost 8.0 percent in 2009).” See numbersusa.
The project is supposed to produce new jobs in 2010 and 2011. The reason it won’t work is that the government and open borders advocates seem to ignore “the continued importation of foreign workers,” both legal and illegal.
If our immigration policies remain unchanged, “the Obama plan will authorize 3.3 million new, (LEGAL) working age foreigners to take U.S jobs over the next two years-enough foreign workers to fill every job created under the Obama plan, plus 1.3 million existing jobs.” These include lawful permanent residents (LPR) and those with employment authorization documents (EAD).
“Under current U.S. immigration policy, the Obama Administration will authorize an average of 138,000 new foreigners each month to fill American jobs, regardless of whether the U.S is producing or losing jobs, or whether U.S. wages are rising or falling.”
“In addition to these new, legal foreign workers, some 7.7 million illegal aliens were employed in U.S. jobs in 2008, based on estimates from the Pew Hispanic Center. These are all jobs that unemployed U.S. workers-both citizens and already-resident legal immigrants-could and should have the chance to fill.”
But they won’t. The new immigration bill soon to be in the Senate, S.9, “Stronger Economy, Stronger Borders Act of 2009”,will, if it’s like other immigration bills, have a path to legalization for the 12 to 20 million illegal aliens currently in the United States.
The new bill could have a number of work visa programs that will increase the number of “temporary” Mexicans entering the U.S. even though unemployment in America is increasing dramatically.
Writer Frosty Wooldridge watched a recent edition of NBCs “Meet the Press” in which participants “talked specifically how the (stimulus) package would put African-Americans back to work in construction.” He wondered how these experts could “be that stupid or naive or fraudulent.”
“Who do you think rebuilt New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina? Answer: illegal alien Mexicans, Central and South Americans! They rushed into New Orleans, commandered the jobs, and spoke only Spanish while outbidding Americans on every construction project. Once they took over, they ‘colonized’ all the jobs by ethnic intimidation and language. A black or white American couldn’t get a job to save his/her rear-end.
“With over 20 million illegal aliens within the United States, and, already entrenched in in bridge, housing and city construction projects–who do you think will be pulling down the paychecks when the stimulus package hits the streets? Illegal Mexicans!”
“But who really sends our citizens onto the unemployment lines? Who voted for millions of H-1B, H-2B and other visas–to displace American workers? Who voted for insourcing, offshoring and outsourcing of our jobs? Obama and Congress!” See complete article.
Another example of illegals taking jobs from Americans after Hurricane Katrina:
“An Alabama employment agency that sent laborers and construction workers to job sites in that state in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina says the men (mostly African Americans) were sent home after just two weeks on the job by employers who told them ‘the Mexicans had arrived’ and were willing to work for less.” Read the article and see why our current situation will only get worse.
