A new government study shows that decades of mass immigration has obliterated Middle Class wages. As Democrats have spent the last four decades deliberately quadrupling our foreign-born population to forty-one million (via Ted Kennedy’s 1968 immigration act, designed to import a more socialist electorate), the incomes of the bottom 90% of Americans have stagnated and declined, according to Investors’ Business Daily on Friday. From 1945 to 1970, Middle Class wages climbed consistently year-after-year, ending only once Democrats imposed this wage-killing 324.5% explosion of immigration.
Additionally, as a 2014 Center for Immigration Studies report revealed, the entire net gain of jobs in the U.S. since the year 2000 has gone to legal and illegal immigrants. And the left’s Constitution-shredding “executive amnesty” for millions of illegal immigrants is already adding as many foreign workers to the economy as jobs that have been created since they took office in 2009. Also, as I explained back in November, the astronomical costs of such lawless edicts to our state and federal health care, education, and welfare budgets are absolutely devastating at this point.
This is all despite the unprecedented public rejection of such endless mass immigration being forced on the American people by a tiny handful of liberal extremists in Washington (Democrats and most Republicans), which ultimately amounts to a sweeping transfer of wealth from taxpayers to foreign criminals…at the expense of the economy, public safety, and the rule of law. As Breitbart News has thoroughly documented, every major polling source now shows sweeping, record opposition to this leftist insanity.
Investors’ Business Daily adds:
As the Washington Times’ Stephen Dinan reported last week, deportations of illegals “have plummeted by another 25% so far this year,” with just 117,181 immigrants deported in the six months since October. As a landmark report from Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum last year concluded, the annual flow of 1.1 million legal immigrants under the current system means more than 5 million new potential voters by 2024, and more than 8 million by 2028.
Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security is now diverting significant taxpayer-funded resources to reaching nine million green card holders and convincing them to naturalize before the 2016 election. This blatantly corrupt abuse of power to politicize yet another government institution for partisan gain further demonstrates that this is about nothing more than importing millions of new Democrat voters at everyone else’s expense.
Again, liberals stand for absolutely nothing but Democrat power. Their disastrous, time-disproven ideas cannot compete on a level playing field and constantly require them to lie, cheat, and steal in order to get their way. They never hesitate to throw the Middle Class, the will of the people, and everything they pretend to stand for under the bus the moment any of it gets in the way of their next illegal power grab.
