Proof that Mass Immigration Has a Negative Impact on Americans

Sharing is Caring!

by Mark Angelides

The cap that President Trump has refused to lift on H-2B visas has forced companies all over the United States to do the unthinkable and hire American workers! What’s worse is that they are complaining that they have to pay American workers more…Tell me again; didn’t someone say that immigration was good for Americans?
Is this not irrefutable evidence that the low-skilled (or living in low-opportunity areas) workers are being squeezed out of the job market by workers who are willing to take a lower wage? Isn’t this known as wage-suppression? The fact that employers are hiring people as seasonal workers for lower wages does not reflect well on them. It ignores the most key fact: Without a proper wage, no one can build a stake in their future.
Some may argue that a business owner should pay only what they have to; and this isn’t actually wrong. But the kind of economy this habit creates is one of low wages, transient workers, and desolate towns. The seasonal workers come in, collect their money, live in crowded cheap accommodation, and then move on. The money doesn’t stay in the local economy.
It is possible to take less of a wage if you are sharing a room with four other seasonal workers, but if you want to raise a family, or put down roots, then this kind of “gig-economy” just doesn’t help. We often hear how migrants are just looking to make a future in America…And I say well done to them! But if they continue to take jobs at lower wages (undercutting locals), then how will they ever have enough to make roots for themselves or their families? They are consigning themselves to a permanent life of seasonal work and transience.
This is not good for American workers, migrant Americans, or, in the long run, those on visas hoping to make a life in the US.
It is the companies that benefit. And I’m all for a company making money, but it needs to be done with an eye to the future, thinking about the towns and cities in which they operate. We can all argue about market forces, but if there is an unending oversupply of cheap labor, it is real people who end up suffering. The H-2B visa group is the slowest growing in terms of wage increases, and in some sectors of this group, the wages have even gone down. According to Politico, out of the top 10 H-2B categories, 9 showed lower wage growth than other areas, the exception being waiters and waitresses who saw a 20% increase from 2004 to 2016.

  1. 1) People who hire illegals are the same people who buy stolen property from burglers and shoplifters. They are cowards who want cheap goods, but don’t have the guts to steal them themselves.
    2) People who hire illegals are stealing the food off the tables of their neighbors. They work to undercut the wages that their honest neighbors should be earning.
    3) Hiring illegals is RACIST. African Americans who are trying to work their way up the economic ladder are being pushed down the ladder by people who prefer
    hiring “lighter” illegals. Claiming the illegals “just want to work” while ignoring the MS13 type GANGS and drug smuggling, etc.
    4) People who claim illegals are “only filling jobs AMERICANS won’t take” are LIARS. They are filling jobs that “save money” by ignoring LAWS about health and safety, thus MAKING MORE MONEY for the Scum that refuse to pay decent wages, and address basic LAWFUL safety concerns.
    5) Bushbama LIES when he claims there is a “war” on terror. Bushbama would seal the border tight if there was ANY terrorist threat, because it is WIDE OPEN for Terrorists to stroll in whenever they like. How can ANYONE listen to Bushbama “demand” that Iran, Syria, Lebanon, “seal” their borders, when OUR border has a WELCOME mat out for TERRORISTS to come in and KILL Americans.
    6) If Mexico was not such a cesspool of corruption, the Mexicans would not want out. Why are We so COZY with CORRUPT Mexican rulers? Why hasn’t America applied SANCTIONS on Mexico? Why are we not DEMANDING “regime change” in MEXICO??? Why is the Bush Family so COZY with the corrupt families there??

  2. Thinking people. . . those not hopelessly brainwashed by the Liberal Lies. . . were aware of the downside of unlimited immigration decades ago. But if they said anything. . . screams of “racist” filled the air.

    • Maybe they [Apple] should have done a background check, and they would have found out those 250-or so, can nor legally work here.

  3. There is never a shortage for unskilled labor. There is also no shortage of regulations which are either complied with or dodged (avoided). And yet, the worst of condtions in this country (USA) are so much better than the best of conditions in other countries which complicates things.

  4. But after 8 years of Barry we should be living in El Dorado but we’re not. The middle class has been worse off every year since the elite orchestrated demise started in 1974.
