DC March for Jobs, July 10, 2013
The Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) has organized an anti-amnesty march and rally–the DC March for Jobs–in Washington, D.C. on Monday, July 15th. The goal is to “demand that our leaders reject amnesty, enforce immigration laws as written, and support policies that put black U.S. citizens back to work.”
As their web site notes, if the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill is enacted, it “will be costly for all Americans, but will harm black American workers more than any other group. Mass immigration and amnesty puts those poorest Americans from all walks of life out of work and suppresses wages, causing them to compete with aliens willing to work in poorer working conditions for cheaper pay. When 22 million Americans are either out of work or unemployed, now is no time to further over-saturate the labor force with increased immigration levels and amnesty. If Congress doesn’t stop this irresponsible legislation, the United States will continue to see more and more Americans of all races out of jobs and on the streets.”
The list of speakers for the event includes:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.)
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa)
Former Rep. Alan West (Fla.);
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.);
State Sen. Elbert Guillory (R-La.);
Frank Morris, former Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation;
Mike Cutler, former INS Agent; and
Dennis Michael Lynch, filmmaker .
