While open border advocates continue to push blanket amnesty for illegals aliens in hopes that these newly minted citizens will impact the electorate, more talk is zeroing in on an effect of our unenforced border laws: the impact on blue collar employment.
Rather than taking the jobs that Americans don't want, turning a blind eye to illegal immigration for the sake of good business has resulted in giving illegals jobs that Americans won't want to do for the low pay given to their competitors from south of the border.
This grand coalition that the liberals hope to put together by giving citizenship (and the resulting voting rights that come with citizenship) is really an attempt to force two groups together that have competing economic issues. Low skilled, blue collar workers already have a tough enough time competing for the dwindling good paying manufacturing jobs that their parents and grandparents raised their families on.
And if you are a felon looking to get hired by a company? Forget about it. Why hire someone with a criminal record when you can hire an illegal for less pay despite the fact that they have an undeterminable criminal background as well as a questionable identity. That's right employers, don't ask the questions that you don't want the answers to.
Thank goodness our education establishment has tried to shoehorn every kid in high school into college and an unreasonable career path. That policy seems to have dovetailed nicely with the arrival of masses of unskilled workers that don't complain much. American exceptionalism and our sovereignty are at risk, but don't let it get in the way of making a buck.
