In Oakland CA, the International High School educates nearly 100 border surge kiddies, as noted in a typically diversity-positive story from PBS. We learn about all the special services the junior illegal foreigners receive, but no dollar cost to the taxpayer is given. They get free meals, special language classes and lots of psychological counseling [...]
The threat of smart machines to jobs is becoming more recognized as the economy gradually improves but hiring still lags stubbornly behind. During the long recession, businesses have adopted strategies emphasizing “efficiency” which means more computers, automation and robots.
That trend is particularly noticeable in manufacturing, as shown in the graph below.
The good news is that [...]
Sunday’s Omaha Herald has a front-page article railing against worsening hispanic poverty in the state, with an appropriate sob story graphic of an adorable dark-eyed child with a bag of spuds. So subtle.
But wait. Nebraska had the second-lowest unemployment rate in the nation as of November, just 3.1 percent, compared with the national rate of [...]
It’s bad enough that Democrat-run California has legislated driving permits for job-stealing illegal aliens, but that’s only the beginning of crazed uber-government run amok. It’s everywhere, from brightly colored toy guns to transgender rights. Sacramento has done its darndest to impose its nosey values into every area of life.
One non-existent liberal concern is public safety. [...]
Happy New Year! January 2015 is upon us, and legislators in the Once-Golden State have been busy in the past while, creating a host of bad laws, the worst of which being the issuance of driving permits for illegal aliens.
Naturally, the illegal alien invaders are thrilled to get their licenses starting now, so they can [...]
Wait, weren’t illegal aliens supposed to be pining for the whole enchilada of freebies, benefits and work permits — all with approval in writing? Now we learn that tens of thousands of newbies who blew over the border last summer with kiddies in tow are no-shows for their court hearings to get their amnesty applications [...]
Once upon a time, unions stood for improving the lives of American citizens. The historic union leader Samuel Gompers said, “America must not be overwhelmed.”
Now unions have turned to the dark side of open borders, along with universities, the entire Democrat party and the Catholic church.
Below, an SEIU member in Chicago spoke earlier this month [...]
What a surprise — the administration wants to speed up the process to transform millions of immigrants into grateful Democrat voters. And after eight years of Obama, the Democrat Presidential candidate will need all the help he or she can get. Several million new Democrats might turn the trick for them.
Watch the latest video at [...]
The regime apparently is fine with an even larger level of fraud included in the freebies and benefits for the millions of Obama’s unconstitutionally amnestied illegal aliens. The feds have ignored the loss of billions of dollars in tax fraud in a crazy-loose program, i.e. $15 billion in suspicious Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) payouts [...]
Roy Beck, of NumbersUSA, appeared Monday on MSNBC to discuss Obama’s illegal amnesty (spare video link). While much of the chatter lately has been about deportations, Beck emphasized the central issue regarding the policy’s effect on the American people: The work permits are the amnesty.
ROY BECK: We want members of Congress to think that it [...]
In 1994, the Atlantic monthly published an article by then-reporter Roy Beck that was a wake-up call about extreme immigration diversity being foisted on America: The Ordeal of Immigration in Wausau. I remember reading it around that time and thinking Hmmm…
Now a pro-immigration writer has looked under the Hmong immigration rock, and he probably shouldn’t [...]
Illegal aliens have a lot for which to be thankful this season, given that Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty will give work permits to at least five million foreign job thieves. Plus, the President’s cornucopian package includes Social Security and Medicare even though the he claimed his amnesty wouldn’t cover benefits that cost taxpayers billions of dollars [...]
