Thread: Sen. Schumer to Hold Hearing to Discuss Immigration’s Positive Impact on Economy

  1. #1
    Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is once again pushing to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill, stating that next week, he will hold a hearing focused on the economic effects of immigration, and the arguments for and against it.
    “We decided we ought to start highlighting the fact that immigration creates jobs rather than takes them away,” Schumer told Politico. “Everyone agreed that is how we are going to start talking about immigration, as a job creator.”

    Question: why didn't Senate hold hearings and pass CIR while they had sizable majority in House and 60 votes ( filibuster-proof) in Senate?

    The adage is that Democrats didn't want to lose the swing voters and wanted to cling to their majority.

    Given the fact that they lost great number of seats in House and almost lost majority in Senate in 2010 (majority which they are more likely than not will lose in 2012), how do they justify not doing what they could in retrospective?

    With venomous attacks against immigrants in past 20 years initiated by no other than extreme right wing, it is sure as daylight that any immigrant with brains would vote Democrat for the rest of their lives, except those with hardest cases of retardation.

    Why didn't Dems tap into it when they could?
    That would be 12 million voting for Democrats US Citizens in just a decade. Of course those not in Dem camp abhor it, but why didn't Dems do what is in their own long term interest?

    I know how the KKK members at John Tantons fairus.org cringe after Morton memo, must be so bad that racist immigrant haters don't have control over Constitutionally elected administration of current President who doesn't allow Nazis do what they wish. Ehh, let them Nazis cringe.
    Screw Nazis of John Tanton and shame on us , LIBERAL-DEMOCRAT MINDED HUMAN BEINGS if Hitler worshippers ever succeed in intimidating us into silence.
    Demographics will kick them in rear end anyway. Time to speak up against Nazis is NOW.

    With all due respect to the racist rag...

    illegal alien parasites are NOT immigrants.

    The only jobs that illegal aliens create are for staff to run the welfare office and hand out food stamps.

    The economic impact of illegal alien parasites...EMPTY WALLETS FOR AMERICANS WHO PAY FOR ALL OF THE WELFARE PROGRAMS ABUSED BY ILLEGALS!

    You are incorrect on two counts.

    1. Illegal aliens are defined as immigrants and assumed to be so even by US Government. Anyone with the goal to stay indefinitely in US is called an immigrant. There is a distinction between those who are registered and legal and those who are not, but both considered to be immigrants ( just do some research on the word and how it is applied to those who live in US).


    2. It is greatest irony of all when those who atatck illegal aliens charge them simultaneously ( or consecutively ) of:

    A. STEALING JOBS FROM AMERICANS
    B. DRAINING THE WELFARE PARASITES

    How could they be stealing jobs if they are on welfare?
    How could they be parasites on welfare if they are stealing jobs?

    I don't even mention the fact that Bill Clinton had signed a law in 1996 that had pretty much abolished ALL OF THE WELFARE as it was known in post-LBJ era AND, on top of it, stipulated that even Legal Permanent Residents can't get, under any circumstances, any welfare unless after 5 years of LPR status in US (I know that most stupid rednecks are plainly too stupid to know this, they don't know much of what's going on in the world outside their backyard fences and can only fume in hatred of "others", but should we count you among those ignorant ones as well?)
    What welfare are you talking about?

    See above. And also, see how egregiously inconsistent those immigrant bashers are, they blame illegal aliens for stealing jobs on one hand while charging them of being parasites and living off of a welfare on another. What could be a better testament to frivolousness of these clowns!

    It is also very ironic, to say the least, to see how the very individuals who most likely were among those who allowed illegals to come here en mass in 1990s (to pick up crops, fuel construction and help with cheap labor in other menial industries, while ruthlessly lowering the wages of US workers) are now the ones who scream loudest of all how illegals are culprits that must be penalized for coming here to do hard labor for pennies, for stealing jobs AND a welfare.

    But your time will be over, SundevilUsa, voter demographics are not in your favor, you may scapegoat another generation of unfortunate lynch-mob victims, but inevitably the day is coming that will put great numbers of voters against you. And then we will see.
