Yes, multiply by six decades and you will note that far fewer immigrants arrived during the entire Ellis Island era than Senators Menendez (D-N.J.) and Flake (R-Ariz.) are insisting on adding in just a single decade.

2.5 -- around 2 .5 million immigrants arrived in the decade of 1950s. Labor markets were tight. Businesses innovated to produce more per worker. Wages rose rapidly. America became a true middle-class society. When Congress didn't meet demand for labor with more foreign workers, employers turned to the country's historic underemployed Black population, enabling the great successes of the Civil Rights movement in this and the next decade.

3.3 -- around 3.3 million immigrants arrived in the decade of the 1960s. In the middle of the decade, Congress changed immigration laws to give every country equal access to the system but promised that the numbers would not rise more than a half-million for a decade.

4.5 -- around 4.5 million immigrants arrived in the decade of the 1970s as chain migration categories produced increases far above the promises of those who pushed the 1965 law.

7.3 -- around 7.3 million immigrants were given green cards in the decade of the 1980s. In the middle of the decade, Congress passed an amnesty for some 3 million illegal aliens and promised enforcement to stop future illegal immigration. The enforcement never really happened, but employers got another big increase in the legal workforce.

10 -- In 1990, Congress approved a surge in green cards at the request of businesses who warned that they faced labor shortages in a couple more decades. But the 1990 law provided for a bi-partisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform to study the surge to see if it had any negative impacts on American workers as the opponents of the bill argued. In 1995, the commission concluded that the surge was depressing wages and harming the most vulnerable member of the national community and recommended cutting immigration to something like 5 million a decade. Under great pressure from business lobbyists, Congress in 1996 turned down the recommendations and has kept the 1990 Immigration Surge in place, on a pace of adding more than 10 million immigrants per decade (1990-2012).

33 -Shall I remind you that even in light of the constant increases in immigration from traditional numbers,Senators Durbin (D-IL) and Graham (R-S.C.) are iinsisting on a SUPER SURGE over the 1990 Immigration Surge?

They and their Gang of Eight pals Sen. Bennett (D-Colo.) and Sen. McCain (R-Ariz.) argue that the reason the 1986 amnesty didn't work is that Congress didn't increase legal immigration to handle the demand for extra labor.

Would you help me get the above numbers to these Senators?

Congress has done nothing but increase immigration every decade for a half-century. This is a truth that almost nobody in the news media will let the public know. In fact, many reporters simply quote the Gang of Eight and their supoorters as they say that we have a big illegal immigrant population because Congress in recent decades has been becoming increasingly restrictive on lawful immigration!

LOOK AT THE NUMBERS! The immigration numbers shown above don't lie. And it is because le gal immigration has been growing so rapidly over the last half-century that the most popular answer for Americans on the standard question about immigration is that the numbers are "too high."

This S. 744 Oversized-Amnesty & Immigration Super-Surge bill would give out nearly half as many green cards in a single decade as every person who has permanently settled in this country over the previous FOUR CENTURIES -- since the founding of Jamestown in 1607.

If you have a Senator who is on the fence about whether to vote for this bill, make sure he/she understands THE MAGNITUDE.

Will the next Director of the FBI investigate his boss?
Either Obama is smart or he just made another big mistake!!!

President Obama is expected to name former Justice Department official James Comey as the next director of the FBI, sources tell NPR. Comey is a Republican who has a reputation for bipartisanship and even-handedness.

Ask the Senators' staff if they know how many green cards are being offered by this bill. Are they really stopping to count the cost before deciding how to vote? They can't evaluate the costs without realizing what 33 million really looks like.

HERE IS WHAT ADDS UP TO 33 MILLION Because the Gang of Eight say they never took time to add up how many green cards would be handed out under S. 744, many people are skeptical that the 33 million can be right.

Check out the detailed analysis of 26 immigration categories at: https://www.numbersusa.com/content/files/10-Y...

The 33 million green cards offered by S. 744 in the first decade would go to:
• around 11 million for illegal aliens (could be millions more if the official estimate is wrong)
• around 11 million in continuation of elevated flows from 1990 surge policy
• around 5 million from end of numerical limits on people waiting in line (mostly chain migration)
• around 6 million from new and expanded categories

Here's the 30-second video raising deep moral questions about what kind of national community we are going to be.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), Pub.L. 99–603, 100 Stat. 3359, enacted November 6, 1986, also Simpson-Mazzoli Act, is an Act of Congress which reformed United States immigration law.

In brief the act

required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status.
made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants.
legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants.
legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt. About three million undocumented immigrants were granted legal status.
Let's see, did employers to attest to their employees' immigration status? NO!
Are employers prosecuted for knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants? NO!

So, why should we trust any new bill that gives amnesty to illegal aliens?

Let's give green cards to young qualified foreign people for technical jobs because we know that older (over 45) citizens are senile and incompetent and should FOAD. That's the opinion of big American business, the heroes of the Republican Party.

The Bull Market’s Dangerous Illusion
By John Maxfield | June 1, 2013

It's hard to bemoan a bull market, but there's reason to believe that we should. Since the last major correction in the summer of 2011, during which the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX:^GSPC ) lost 17% of its value over the course of a month, the broader market is up by 46%. While this is great for anyone who holds stocks, as I and most of our readers do, it's fueled a dangerous illusion of economic prosperity that simply isn't reflected in the underlying economy.

How many times over the last few months have you read about the need for the Federal Reserve to begin tapering its monetary support for the economy? Chances are, a lot. The mainstream financial media can't seem to go a day without postulating if and when the central bank will begin reducing its monthly purchases of long-term treasuries and mortgage-backed securities that are designed to drive down borrowing costs and spur employment.

What's causing this angst? The only reasonable explanation is the media's unhealthy obsession with the daily, weekly, and monthly fluctuations in the stock market. This pressure has built up so much, in fact, that the chairman of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, felt obligated to address the impact of monetary policy on asset prices in a recent speech titled "Monitoring the Financial System."

Is that LEGAL or ILLEGAL immigrants men? I know several immigrant men who do not work. One is from Greece another is German and the couple who bought my house where Egyptians. They are all over 65 and retired!
Oh, the Greek guy came last fall when they tried to confiscate most of his money. Since his net assets are over one million dollars, he had no problem being allowed in the U.S. And he does not need a Green Card as they are...... retired!!!
I don't know if any illegal aliens have retired in the U.S. but I am sure some have!

Says the moron who thinks a working immigrant is more likely to give rise to a deadbeat than a welfare citizen. Duh!

A working (immigrant) father engenders zero work ethics? In that case working citizen fathers pop out babies with a sense of self-entitlement with zero work ethics.

MORON.

Sorry, loser. If you "know several immigrant men who do not work" that is of no moment.

The FACT IS immigrant men have a higher rate of work than native born men in this country.
