Still does not address the underlining issue that is the foundation of all of our economic woes.

The monetary system.

Nobody ever looks at the monetary system. But, it is the monetary system that controls everything. Want to build a bridge, start a defense project, increase spending for immigration reform, etc..

It all revolves around money. And the monetary system is the root cause of the problem.

I ask this of the people. What is money? What kind of money system do we have? Where does money come from?

Until the money system is addressed, none of this matters.

Lower wages, higher demand and higher prices are always good for the economy of the wealthy.

It won't be lower wages it will be the same wages. Do you think most of these ILLEGAL aliens give two hoots about becoming and acting legal?

Once they find out they have to pay taxes and the other expenses of being a legal American citizen they'll go right back to the underground cash only economy as will many employers. Once they findout/realize they can trash a credit rating and have to declare bankruptcy by not paying a hospital bill they will go right back to ILLEGAL. If anything else ILLEGAL status gives them less responsibility with more 'privleges' like 'free' emergency room visits.

"The sweeping immigration reform bill approved late last month by the U.S. Senate would boost the U.S. economy and help create jobs, the White House asserted in a report released Wednesday".

How?

They said the same thing about the trade deals yet they had to put a worker retraining clause in it.

Job retraining means they are losing theirs.

How in the world do they think adding more people to the unemployment pool is going to create jobs?

The people there can't find work.

Boost the economy?

So companies can hire someone at minimum wage instead of $12.00 hr.

People can't live on that.

A race to the bottom is what they seem to be striving for.

The economic advantages of what? Building new prisons to hold them when they invariably commit criminal acts. Or how about the advantages of having a huge non-english speaking population, like the Korean Asiana pilot. And then there's the advantage of them sending their money home and the loss to our economy. And more congestion on the roads. Plus the fact that 38% of illegals are OTMs. This Other Than Mexican population is really scary, Arabs, Asians, and who knows what. Just build a bigger fence!
My president was elected by dead people!

Whenever you read a "White House Says" statement, it should be obvious that the opposite is true.
Look at EVERYTHING else the Idiot in Chief has said.. The guy is a worthless pile of incredibly expensive excrement, that will bw paid for by millions of taxpayers, some of whom who have not yet even been born.
The turd in the White House is making government STINK, and he needs to be flushed.
