    Young illegal immigrants’ amnesty could tighten competition for jobs, college



    Jacquelyn Martin/AP - From left, Ricky Campos, 23; Katye Hernandez, 22; and Rachelle Robertello, 18, front, rally with other members of Casa de Maryland outside the White House after Obama announced a policy to offer legal status to some undocumented immigrants under the age of 30.

    “I thank God for this day. It has changed my whole life,” Jorge Acuna, 19, a college student in Silver Spring who came to the United States with his family as a child, told a cheering crowd outside the White House on Friday afternoon, minutes after Obama announced the new policy. Last spring, the community college student was nearly deported to his native Colombia. Now, under the amnesty, he will be able to pursue his degree in engineering.

    But opponents of illegal immigration warned that the policy could create significant new competition for jobs and university slots at a time of nationwide recession and numerous states’ efforts to curb public spending.

    “I see a tidal wave coming,” said Brad Botwin, president of Help Save Maryland, a group that opposes legalization for undocumented immigrants. “Half of our college graduates today can’t find jobs, and the unemployment rate for high-school-aged Americans is extremely high. This is unfair to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who are out there struggling to get ahead.”

    Yep! The black population on this board told us white folk to sit down and shut the hell up and enjoy the browning of America. This is truly a case of "be careful what you wish for."

    Another example of how much Barack Obama LOVES America, and how much he cares for ALL American citizens.

    ANYTHING for those votes!
