I had a call today that made me think. The caller said if we make the 11 million that are hear illegally citizens, they will cost us less because they will no longer be working in the shadows and will become tax payers.
In essence they will become citizens that pay their way, no longer using the system for healthcare and education, they will pay as they go, theory.
In theory he has a point, but on further examination, this would be 11 million more that would compete for any job in America. That means 11 million more in a job force that is 8 per cent un-employed and it's probably higher.
This is in addition to the 1 million that immigrate to the United State annually legally. Competition is generally good, but can our country absorb these kinds of numbers. Did I mention the 200 thousand un-skilled workers that will be allowed in the United States annually. Just thinking are we not creating un-skilled workers of our own?
Have you called Senator Portman or Brown and asked about the additional competition and the 840 page immigration bill, which would require billion in implementation fees?
Say hell no to more government programs, we already have an "Affordable Health Care Bill" they can't seem to implement which will control one 6th or of our budget. When someone asks, ask them why we have to do anything? We're broke.
