Rewriting the rules on immigration: Bush plan allows American employers to hire Mexican citizens to fill American jobs
President Bush is about to rewrite the rules on illegal immigration by
essentially ignoring the rules. Reports out of Washington are that
the White House is going to announce a new policy that would allow
American jobs to be assigned to illegal immigrants.
The Bush plan allows
to hire Mexican
citizens to fill
These jobs are
Americans to occupy,
but that concept is
utter nonsense. The
taking these jobs in
question is because businesses are able to fill their employment rolls
with illegal immigrants.
These illegal immigrants will work for next to nothing. So, if the
United States government actually protected our borders and
enforced the employment laws that you pay for them to enforce,
these jobs in question would pay good enough wages for Americans
Then again, living by the law of the land might actually affect some
businesses' bottom line.
As we all know, playing to illegal aliens is all the rage in Washington
these days, where politicians of both parties cynically believe that
the only way to win votes is by embracing a group of criminals who
come to our country, break our laws, and take our jobs.
The chief law enforcement officer of the United States is going to
tell the world that America has given up its battle to protect its
borders. And what that means for our nation's security is anybody's
guess. It's a disturbing turn of events in Washington
