TAMAR. JACOBY IGNORANT ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. Illegal immigration cannot be compared to a broken traffic light. thats about the dumbest analogy I have ever heard. 20 people applying for the same jobs will not raise the salary of that job. Adding 20 million people to the workforce is not going to raise wages but lower wages because more people will be competing for jobs and spread jobs thin and wages will not go up but down. Those hard working people have broken the law and the punishment should not be a reward by giving them amnesty. A measly fine of $5,000 will never be paid unless they want to become citizens and many of then do not. Many of those who were given amnesty in 1986 have not learned English or applied for citizenship which has a fee. Doing jobs that Americans will not do? There are no jobs that Americans have not done and will not do. Who was doing them before there were 20 million here? 20 million illegal aliens are not working in fields? What the hell are those jobs Americans will not do? Construction? Road work? city, county, state and federal? Clerical? Clerks? Cooks? Waitress and waiters? In hotels and casinos? Hospitals, dental and medical clinics? Warehouses? Meat packing companies? Janitors? Garbage collectors? Legal immigrants who were once illegal until the 1986 amnesty have taken jobs away from American citizens and it will happen again if there is another amnesty. I can remember when a black woman had a janitorial service and was put our of business by an illegal alien who bid lower for the jobs and illegal aliens took it from her because she did the same work for less. I remember when lawn services were owned by Americans and illegal aliens did the job for less and took them. I remember when all the garbage collectors were black now they are illegal aliens. I remember when a man with a painting business was out bided by illegal aliens and put him our of work and he lost his business, rental property, his home and his wife and finally took her life. That was my brother. I remember when teenagers worked in fast food restaurants as after school or part-time jobs and now illegal aliens work two of these jobs and took them away from the teenagers. My paper boy is a illegal from Guatemala and I remember when she was a black woman. These are the jobs that Ms. Jacoby say Americans will not do. These are the jobs illegal took away from Americans. They are in all the metropolitan cities and places were there is no farms. Illegal aliens do not get welfare? Ms. Jacoby you cannot possible be that stupid.----------------Illegal Aliens Get Millions In Monthly Welfare Checks Illegal Aliens Get Millions In Monthly Welfare Checks | Judicial Watch On the verge of going bankrupt with an astounding $26.3 billion deficit, the nations most populous state is considering saving hundreds of millions of dollars annually by cutting monthly welfare payments to illegal immigrants. (on the application for welfare assistance, there is a section for illegal aliens to fill out) Thats why California officials, extremely generous with tax dollars in the past, are trying to find a way to eliminate welfare payments to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants. The move, which has caused outrage among the states powerful open borders lobby, would save a much-needed $640 million a year. An example of who the state cuts the monthly checks to is an unemployed 43-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico who gets $650 a month for each of her four children and about $500 in federal food stamps and other vouchers. ( unbelievable) If we need illegal aliens in our workforce then Mexico, etc must need them more. Another amnesty will only lead to another amnesty and encourage more illegal immigration. American should get the jobs before illegal aliens That is not possible because they are hired before Americans who do not speak Spanish because of Spanish speaking only clients. They have to be in hired before English speaking Americans and they are to communicate with Spanish speaking clients. This will happen more if they are given amnesty. They will take even more jobs legally from Americans.
