Wrong. More legal workers = more taxes, more prosperity, higher productivity. A rising tide raises all the boats, ok.Having 20 million new workers will, as you know, be the death knell for job creation for African-Americans. The struggle for a piece of the American Dream has been too hard to allow Immigrants to steal the opportunities right out from under them.
Stop buying into this notion that somehow justice for illegal immigrants hurts AA's! So for you to have justice, someone else must be oppressed? Is that how it goes?
That's pathetic and is the same mentality held by Southern poor whites during Jim Crow. They claimed, if we let blacks get hired at the better jobs, then that will hurt us. In fact, the maintenance of a Jim-Crow-sanctioned cheaper labor force is what hurt the white workers. And look at Atlanta today... without Jim Crow, the South is more prosperous than before, black and white both.
Illegal status of workers who are forced here by poverty and lured here by employers is simply another “Jim Crow” mechanism to maintain a sector of the workforce in a lower status.
If I'm against Jim Crow for black people, then I have to also be in favor of legalizing the illegal immigrants present in the USA.
