The image of illegal aliens in agriculture persists, since they occupy 53 percent of farm labor, but in the near future we may be seeing fewer of them.
The reason: robots and automation are replacing human workers on the farm just as surely as on the factory floor. A few years back, simple automatic harvesters and [...]
There’s no question the current border chaos of alien kids arriving in the daily thousands was fueled by Obama’s talk of amnesty for youngsters, not a situation of fleeing crime. Central America is very violent, true, but it has been so for years.
Another bit of evidence is provided by University of Chicago Law School Professor [...]
On Thursday, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles held a hearing in Oakland to discuss “concerns” of those affected, namely lawbreaking foreigners who have driven in California unlicensed and uninsured for years. Naturally, they want minimal identification required of them, and they want the DLs to be identical to citizens’ licenses (despite the federal requirement [...]
Follow the money: it’s an admonition that is doubly true in the illegal alien scramble. Unlike wealthy Mexico (which pretends to be poor to mooch off the US even though it is #14 in national GDP), the Central American countries really are poor.
As a result, Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras love getting checks from their emigres [...]
The Center for Immigration Studies recently published a study “ICE Document Details 36,000 Criminal Alien Releases in 2013″ showing the Administration’s priorities regarding public safety, the government’s #1 job. Many of those set loose are seriously bad guys.
This foreign criminal release should not be confused with a different bunch, 68,000 foreign criminals sprung from incarceration [...]
Is the Washington Post developing a lib-crush on Jeb Bush? The paper featured a curious piece about Bush on Monday’s front page (“For Jeb Bush, a family decision”), celebrating his appeal to diversity via the Mexican wife, but the article brings up ancient history that may have been forgotten by the public. One item: daughter [...]
Things are changing down on the farm. Smart machines in the form of milkbots are lightening the load a bit for dairy farmers, removing the pressure of needing to have someone in the barn every twelve hours 365 days a year. After a little training, the cows walk into the milking contraption whenever they feel [...]
The usual suspects performed the standard whine on behalf of lawbreaking foreigners in Los Angeles on Friday. Archbishop Jose Gomez led an interfaith gaggle of liberal religious robe-a-dopes in a vigil for the long-suffering foreigners who have come to steal American jobs and grab other freebies.
In January, Los Angeles’ unemployment rate fell below 9 percent [...]
America’s sovereignty defender explained to dim Democrats in the Senate why screening out illegal aliens is vital to protect citizens from being displaced in jobs by cheap foreign workers who don’t mind being exploited.
The Accountability through Electronic Verification Act, which Sessions mentioned, would make E-verify mandatory for all employers. The fact that the easy-to-use, succesful [...]
How screwed up is this? An illegal alien’s miserable life is saved during last September’s terrible floods in Colorado, but the rescue wasn’t performed perfectly according to Roy Ortiz’s high standards, so he is suing every agency in sight.
Ortiz claims $40,000 in medical bills, yet he intends to sue for $500,000 for property damage and [...]
The question-and-answer format can be an effective explanatory tool. The Orange County Register presented a friendly Q-&-A with NumbersUSA’s Roy Beck in which he could calmly describe his organization’s beliefs and policies without the arm-wrestling one sees in many media interviews given by unfriendlies.
While the open-borders crowd tries to claim virtue with its simpering sob [...]
Jeh Johnson, the new guy who replaced Janet Napolitano as head of the Department of Homeland Security, remarked recently about illegal aliens, “Everyone knows we have millions of undocumented immigrants in this country, and they’re not going away; they’re not going to self-deport.” His comments came during a February 7 speaking event at the Woodrow [...]
