“Reagan/Bush (& Obama) Amnesty Agenda an Economic Catastrophe for Minorities and Legal Immigrants – but who cares, it produces campaign donations and votes!
Here is a story from the Huffington Post that we are guessing Progressive Politics, Marietta Daily Journal blogger Kevin Foley of Kennesaw Georgia
isn’t going to be using in his “I wanna be an expert on illegal immigration” blogs anytime soon.
It is from Robert Hardaway, a law professor at Denver University and economics author
lamenting the fact that the 1986 amnesty for illegal aliens resulted in economic hardship (“catastrophe”) for minorities in America. And that the agenda of ignoring our immigration laws at the insistence of American business is bringing down the wages of our poorest and real immigrants. Which, of course for business, is the goal.
Readers may want to spend a few minutes on this: “Reagan/Bush Amnesty Agenda an Economic Catastrophe for Minorities and Legal Immigrants
Part of which goes like this: “In 1987, at a time when teenage unemployment among African Americans approached 80 percent  , greedy garment makers petitioned the INS to import more cheap labor on grounds that there was an "unskilled labor shortage", repeating the tired mantra that "Americans won't do the dirty work that illegal immigrants are willing to do"-- ignoring the fact that it isn't the dirty jobs that Americans disdain. Cities have no problem recruiting for the dirtiest of jobs, like garbage collection, when decent wages are offered. Most Americans would be willing to pay a few cents more for their tomatoes if it meant social justice for minorities and the legal immigrants who have been reduced to grinding poverty by the Reagan/Bush amnesty agenda.”
None of this will make a shred of difference on immigration enforcement to the Kevin Foley’s of the world however. Having been told what mindless goop the 21st century liberal must go out and sell, sell, sell, the babbling, useful idiots will press for another amnesty and path to citizenship for illegals because they are unable to noodle out the issue themselves., know nearly nothing about it and lack the courage to stand up for their own country.
There is no shortage of evidence of the harm the amnesty of 1986 has done to the USA. Even the then-INS reported on it
after the amnesty disaster. Most in the liberal media realize that most Americans don’t even know it ever happened. To even see it mentioned in the press is rather unusual.
Hat tip to Mr. Hardaway.
