Working For A Living

Working For A Living

In a gubernatorial race where both candidates are to a greater or lesser degree beholden to the open borders lobby, notwithstanding the requisite pre-election posturing of the GOP standard-bearer, a genuine debate about the impact of  mass immigration upon California has not materialized, alas. Even so, the public policies which have irrevocably transformed the Golden State over the past three decades continue to be felt by ordinary Californians and scrutinized by academic scholars. Both groups can’t help but recognize the devastating impact that generations of illegal migration and low-skilled immigration have had upon a state which once served as the sum of hopes for Americans throughout this country, but no longer.

It’s not surprising with findings such as those by researchers at USC, who have concluded that up to ten percent of the California workforce is comprised exclusively of illegal immigrants. Two of the fields in which they exercise the most economic dislocation are, naturally enough, the construction and agricultural industry. However, the notion that the one and a half million unemployed Californians are simply shut out of these jobs-whose pay scale has been perpetually degraded by years of unfettered illegal immigration-is misleading. Beyond question of legality, the impact of mass immigration upon the working age population in California, the epicenter of technological innovation in the United States, has made itself felt in much more lucrative fields, as the scads of unemployed graduates in STEM fields can attest to.

Oddly enough, a legal amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens gainfully employed in that state would probably not lead to any increase in wages for those at the bottom of the labor market, as the Public Policy Institute of California has demonstrated. The very forces that attracted these workers to the United States, i.e. employers looking to find an unlimited supply of cheap labor and a government unwilling to enforce the law, ensure that they will remain mired in poverty for the remainder of their working lives. Unfortunately, the future of this country can be seen in the present of California, where hardly anyone benefits-and scores suffer-save for a few politically powerful corporate and political interests vested in a system that ensures the gradual degradation of the body politic and its economy.

 

 

 

 

The Mujahideen Take Manhattan

The Mujahideen Take Manhattan

 

More in-depth coverage of the terrorist cavalcade which took place in Midtown last week, courtesy of our good friends at The Silent Majority No More. While some large news networks overseas have seen fit to cover the orgy of violence-besotted jihadis who marched in this parade, albeit with the requisite sophistic denials from  its Muslim spokesmen, the absence of coverage from our own drive-by media of the more unpleasant elements of the Religion of Peace is striking-although not surprising.

Congratulations once again to Urban Infidel, Pamela Geller, TSMNM and all of the intrepid bloggers, journalists, and patriotic, anti-sharia freedom activists who risked their safety in order to inform the American public of this growing domestic threat!

Islam On Parade

September 18, 2014

Kudos to Pamela Geller, as well as Urban Infidel and The Silent Majority No More, for risking their safety to document the loathsome, yet officially sanctioned, display of xenophobia, anti-semitism, misogyny, and hatred known as the Muslim Day Parade. Every year the morlocks our federal government, in its infinite wisdom, has invited into America’s bosom colonize Madison Avenue in order to assert their puissance. As alluded to in the interview, the most recognizable symbol of jihadist fervor was absent this year-no doubt out of political expediency-but that didn’t stop the terrorist faithful, including supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, from polluting one of Manhattan’s central commercial arteries.  Read More »

First-class Illegals

First-class Illegals

If you thought the Democratic Party’s embrace of lawbreakers ended with Bill De Blasio’s municipal ID scheme, you are sadly mistaken. The New York Post has an exclusive this week exploring what Democrats intend to do with their legislative majority after this November’s elections. Among the many benefits illegal aliens will derive from a Democratic majority is the right to vote in statewide elections. No longer will those who have smuggled themselves into the country unlawfully have to skulk around in the shadows in order to illicitly cast a ballot for their favorite redistributionist politician. 

Something to consider when you make your way to the polls this coming Election Day.

Rolling Out The Welcome Mat

Rolling Out The Welcome Mat

While Senator Sessions and a handful of congressmen are struggling to publicize this administration’s defiance of the Constitution and the rule of law, the open borders demagogues and hispanderers continue to press Barack Obama to go even further in his campaign to erase any existing effective border and immigration controls. You  need look no further than the official website of the chief instigator in his party’s House caucus in order to understand what’s happening in Washington D.C. and what awaits us after the November elections.

Coupled with the Department of Homeland Security’s capitulation to the ACLU, which will welcome thousands of illegal aliens back to this country, it seems that there is no desire among federal officials to stem the tide of illegal immigration into this country, notwithstanding intense public opposition to this politically-motivated project. Whether or not the wisdom of Jeff Sessions will rub off on the rest of the Republican Party remains to be seen, but if history is any guide, there’s not much room for optimism.

10 Years Later: The 9/11 Commission Report’s Findings on Immigration 

As the nation prepares for the thirteenth anniversary of the most destructive attack upon American soil, we need to remember what our government hasn’t done to ensure the security of our nation. Namely, secure our borders from infiltration by those who would do us harm. From the 6,000 foreigners here ostensibly as students whom the Department of Homeland Security cannot account for, to the global jihadist networks which have established beachheads on our southern border, our federal government has been completely unable and unwilling to implement the prophylactic measures necessary to prevent another terrorist assault on the scale of the 9/11 attacks.

Trek’s Trek (Honoring Brian Terry)

 

Kudos to intrepid investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson for bringing attention to a noble cause. As most of you know, the investigation into the death of Agent Brian Terry at the hands of Mexican narco-insurgents has gone nowhere for nearly the past four years, in no small part due to the obstruction of this administration. Even so, the friends and family of Brian have never stopped speaking out on behalf of justice.

Team Emma (Join The Fight Against Childhood Cancer)

Unfortunately, there aren’t many people whose lives haven’t been touched by cancer in one form or another. One of the most heartbreaking forms, as well as one whose research is perhaps the most grossly underfunded, is pediatric cancer. That’s why the need to support those suffering from it is so urgently needed, as in the case of  a beautiful, strong, sweet little girl from Alabama named Emma Grace Mitchell. Read More »
