The Feds Had Better Stop Alabama . . . Before Everyone There Has a Job!

Ira Mehlman, Immigration Reform, January 23, 2012

Oh no! It’s happened again. Alabama’s unemployment rate continues to plummet.

Ever since Alabama began implementing its immigration enforcement law, H.B. 56, in late September, the state’s unemployment rate has been dropping like a stone. In just the first month the law was in effect, unemployment in Alabama shrank from 9.8 percent of the workforce to 9.3 percent. And now the latest figures are in…and the news couldn’t be worse (for the Obama administration, the illegal alien lobby, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that is): Alabama’s unemployment rate checked in at 8.1 percent in December. That’s more than a 17 percent reduction since September.

No wonder the Department of Justice sued Alabama and its Civil Rights division continues to harass state agencies, even though the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has agreed that all but a few provisions of the law could go into effect. Illegal aliens are responding to the law by leaving, which is not what the Obama administration or the illegal alien lobby want. {snip}

    Funny, I didn’t hear this in last night’s talk about jobs.

    This good news isn’t good news for elites.    All those missing Mexicans wil not be buying diapers, gasoline, food, alcohol, financial or telecom services, or renting shelters. 

    Elite investors profit from rising consumption, a byproduct of population growth.  They’ll be fighting tooth and nail to prevent border enforcement and any reductions to legal immigration.

      That is why the “Elite investors” should be consider traitors to our race and dealt with accordingly.

      You hit the nail right on the head. When they refer to immigration as economic they aren’t just whistling Dixie. If all the Mexican immigrants left the small TX town I live in the school district would loose 50% of its student body. There would be whole neighborhoods of vacant rental properties. Diaper and formula sales at the local grocery stores would plummet. Not to mention that there would be at least 500 or more immediate job vacancies. One Baptist Church in town would loose almost a third of its membership. There would be a hue and cry from the financial elite in this town that could be heard for miles.

      But the example from Alabama shows what I already knew from living around these people for years. When they feel unwelcome or threatened they move on. Too bad Tx won’t follow Alabama’s example.

      More people mean more consumers and more job applicants. By the law of supply and demand that means higher prices, lower wages, and higher profits.

      You forgot to add all those chicken, roosters and goats they keep on their front “lawns” …right alongside the burned out Pintos’s.

      Oh Frank Purdue….what’s to do?

    If Alabama sticks to its guns, perhaps the taxpayer supported “Blacks” will  get back into the fields so that they can enjoy the many benefits of engaging in productive labor. It might even become a way of life for them.

      Tell all the welfare queens that if they don’t take the jobs that are now filled by Mexican women, like motel and hotel housekeepers they will loose their AFDC benefits for five years. Immediately reduce benefits or cancel their Food Stamp benefits and tanif so that their boyfriends will have to go to work as well. Put a moratorium on issuing SSI benefits for mental health issues. Oh and by the way eliminate the earned income credit cash give  
      away. The average benefit this year is nearly $7000.

    Let me guess, crime is dropping, fewer hit and runs, prison population is dropping, test score are going up in school and fewer Mexican restaurants.

    The problem is all these illegals are now moving to our states.

    I wished we could get out of this habit in our society of looking at hard strenuous work as being beneath our dignity. Last year I contracted with a local land lord to repair old sewer lines. I dug the trenches by hand and laid the new sewer pipe myself. Because I didn’t rent a Ditch Witch I made nearly twice the profit that I would have. And no I didn’t employ Mexican labor. I also have a college degree, but the jobs in my field dried up in a bad economy.

      Digging ditches was what I did during the summer for the family plumbing biz. Labor is good for the soul. I miss it at times.

    Yeah. We better make sure that American citizens don’t get those jobs. This would stop the Mexicans from being able to take full control of our country. Perish the thought!

    There was a time when if you knew how to program a computer you could go anywhere and get a job. A number of factors changed that. H1B Visas were one of them. 
     
    During this century high tech employers continued to demand and get more H1B Visas to hire high tech workers from other countries when there were – and are – hundreds of thousands of unemployed American computer professionals. 
     
    High tech employers say that they do not have time to train people. Frequently they refuse to hire those who have taken additional training at their own expense. What those high tech employers mean is that it is not in their interest to train people, even when those people have specialized training and years of computer experience. 
     
    Well, it is in the interest of American computer professionals for those employers to be required to train people who were born in this country, and who have years of computer experience.

      Yet, most Republican Presidential candidates, including the “best” of the remaining bunch on immigration, Romney, want to staple a green card to the diplomas of non-American CSIT/STEM grads.  Now there’s the perfect way to dispossess native born white Americans out of working in those fields.

      The problem is a techie or engineer graduates with $100,000+ in student debt. Most overseas grads have none. The overseas grads can work for $10-20 thousand less since they don’t have any student debt to pay off.

    I’m pretty sure the Feds will get in there to make sure that Americans don’t get back to work. It’s apparently what they do anymore.
