Hope that a bill granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens would die in the House is fading fast. Gang of Eight member Senator Chuck Schumer told CNN on Wednesday that the House GOP fascists’ plan to approach immigration reform through piecemeal legislation is acceptable because whatever they come up with will be reconciled with the Senate’s bill through conference.
Weeper of the House John Boehner and his minions like Eric Cantor, Bob Goodlatte and Paul Ryan have signaled they support amnesty and want to push a bill through Congress. This, despite the fact that an overwhelming number of Americans (60 percent to 69 percent, depending on the poll) want border security handled before amnesty, and more than half of U.S. citizens want illegals deported.
Make no mistake. The illegal immigration debate in Washington has nothing to do with compassion for illegals or an attempt to gain favor from Hispanic voters for the GOP. It’s about finding millions of workers content with slave wages for the large corporations, millions of potential union members and millions more government dependents. It’s about increasing the fascism that is the American political system. It’s about bowing to corporate interests, not American interests.
If you think finding a job is tough now (and real unemployment is about 24 percent and there are still 2 million fewer jobs than there were pre-recession, according shadowstats.com), just wait until some 13 million more workers come out of the shadows looking for aboveboard work.
It’s telling that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, large corporations, unions and people like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates are pushing so hard for amnesty. And the psychopathic elected class? They march right along, ignoring the fact that their voters oppose it because voters realize granting amnesty to millions of lawbreakers and failing to secure the border will destroy the country.
