“If more people know Congress was going to let illegal aliens get these jobs, there would be even less support for the bill,” Steven A. Camarota of The Center for Immigration Studies told Newsmax.
As the Economic Stimulus package continues to evolve there is little doubt that there are no barriers to the looting that is happening by the entrusted people we are paying to secure our future.
I think back to the Russian article about Obama back in December that stated, amongst other things,
“Every con game uses three ingredients against the target: Sell the dream. Push the greed button. Stress urgency.”
You can read the above quote along with the entire article entitled “Barack, The Amazing Mr. Obama” published by Pravda here.
Few people are talking about how this “stimulus package” will effect illegal immigrants.
The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimates conservatively that about 15 percent of workers employed in construction in the United States are illegal immigrants. If no effort is made to bar illegal immigrants from these vital jobs, it is extremely likely that about 300,000 of the coveted 2 million-plus new construction jobs will go to them.
Also eligible, in the Democratic-written legislation are tax credits of $500 per worker and $1,000 per couple to illegal immigrants in these United States. Read more here.
Not surprising that I ran across an editorial out of the UK Economist that gives the link to a new website titled ReadTheStimulus.org. which is taking on volunteers to read the text of the $850 Billion, 1588 pages (and counting). They are asked to read a bit of the next spending bill and flag any spending promises that strike them as strange.
The website reviews the House version as well as both the Democratic and little known Republic version in the Senate.
Much like the Obama vetting process, the media is intentionally concealing the Republican stimulus package that is currently being worked on that spends half as much money and creates twice as many jobs.
Much like the Obama vetting process, the media is intentionally concealing the details of the Democratic stimulus package.
It seems like citizens are doing the government’s job on the website. But at least someone is doing it.
It also seems that the reporters across the waters–along with bloggers–are doing our mainstream media’s job. …But at least someone is doing it.
