Illegals Not Doing Only "Jobs Americans Aren't" -- Ultimate Goal Seems to be Dissolution of U.S. Borders President Bush is still perpetuating the myth that illegal immigrants are only working "on the jobs Americans aren't doing."(1) It might be partially true, but anyone who says that Americans are not being economically hurt by this tidal wave of illegal immigrants are selling you a bill of goods.
If you don't believe me, talk to Mr. Vaughn of Los Angeles, who's sons "have been turned down [in favor of Spanish-speaking immigrants] so many times for jobs - as framers, roofers, cement layers - that they no longer apply."(2) In other words, there are Americans who want jobs that are going to aliens (illegal or otherwise). I don't necessarily want to sound clannish (though there is nothing wrong with that in and of itself) but Americans shouldn't have to compete with foreigners of similar qualification for jobs in their own country. Otherwise, what on earth is the point of even having national borders?
Maybe this sort of passive effect on Americans can be successfully discredited by the political class. They can say that if Americans were better suited to the work, it would be they who were hired, and not illegal (or legal) aliens. And who's to say that the politicians would be wrong if they did make such an argument?
However, the presence of Spanish-speaking workers in this country is hurting Americans and Americans are seeing jobs being taken directly from them and given to Mexican workers:
An Alabama employment agency that sent 70 laborers and construction workers to job sites in that state in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina says the men were sent home after just two weeks on the job by employers who told them "the Mexicans had arrived" and were willing to work for less. . . [W]orkers . . . described as U.S. citizens . . . had been "urgently requested" by contractors hired to rebuild and clear devastated areas of the state, but were told to leave three job sites when the foreign workers showed up. (3)
We have Americans being sent home because Mexican workers arrived at a job site and a President who continues to assert that illegal aliens are "coming here to do work Americans aren't doing."(4) Something is not right here. Of course, the thing that is not right, is that the current president, despite anything he might say, is reported to be actively working toward the dissolution of our borders. In 2005, something called the Strategic and Prosperity Partnership of North America, or SPP was agreed to by "President Bush, President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin during their March 2005 summit meeting in Waco, Texas."(5) This agreement is intended to "create a North American Union along the model of the European Union, put in place by administrative regulations and departmental working groups under the SPP umbrella."(6)
In my humble opinion, any such agreement is in complete violation of the Constutition of these United States. And the existence of the agreement serves to support the hypothesis I've entertained that this government ignores illegal immigration because they seek to destroy our sovereignty. We the People need to become educated on this issue and inform our so-called representatives that we will not stand for the subjugation of our Constitution to Byzantine international agreements.
Our great-grandparents would not recognize this as America. It is true that we have a great tradition of immigration, but we also have a tradition of regulating such immigration in the interests of the American People. Our current so-called "representative" government is totally out of control and does not seem to act in the interests of We the People. This was not so in the past:
[T]he Anglo-Japanese Alliance was . . . renewed in 1911 . . . with the addition of a clause relieving England from the necessity of going to war with the United States even if Japan and the United States became involved in hostilities. This provision was made on account of the uneasiness arising in both Japan and in the United States over the excessive immigration into California of Japanese laborers, who worked for such low wages as to endanger the livelihood of American laborers. These troubles were smoothed by the gentlemen's agreement, in which Japan agreed to regulate the number of emigrants to California. [emphasis added](7)
As you can see, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the United States government was responsive to the needs of Americans as opposed to the needs of foreigners; else Japan would not have feared a war. Contrast that with the present day. Mexico does not fear war with the United States. They have absolutely no incentive to stop sending us their poorest citizens because our government seems incapable of holding them responsible. In fact, our government seems unwilling to hold anyone responsible -- even those who are actually breaking our immigration laws. This has to stop. We the People have to stand up and tell our Representatives that we will not stand for them selling out our country. We have a right to our borders and to our language. We have a right to our constitution. We did not empower them to change our homeland into part of a larger multi cultural economic zone. We empowered them to govern us as a Constitutional Republic. Those in our government who refuse to protect the Republic and the People deserve at the very least to be removed from office.
