Here's what's been bugging the hell out of me lately. You hear news people, or economists debating whether low oil prices are good for the country.
Of course they are good for the everyday working American. The only entities they may not be good for are the big oil companies. Yes, I know low oil prices could be impediment to wean ourselves off fossil fuels, but there is a lot of momentum moving in that direction anyway. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : The Chamber of commerce(small business), usually represented by Republicans, want cheap labor. Democrats want cheap and dependent voters. The American people want jobs and fewer people on government assistance which they pay for out of their earned income. When illegals come here and undercut American workers they end up living on government assistance in addition to their meager checks. Employers should be required to use E-verify in order to verify employees have a good SS# and thus only able to hire legal residents. That would leave no excuse for hiring illegal aliens which should have a strong penalty. The border can be secured with a good fence, electronic sensors and aerial observation, including drones.

As for the border being secured, that will never happen. Never. Part of the problem is that agribiz and the hospitality industry both take full advantage of undocumented workers, so on the one hand, they join the "patriots" and call for secure borders, while on the other hand, they ensure that corporate profits soar, on the backs of illegal labor. Hypocritical BS, which both political parties are well aware of. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : 25 Million? Please, Reagan granted amnesty to 2 million under the condition that the border would be secured, which was never done under a democrat lead house( Speaker Tip O'neal). That is why conservatives demand a secure border *before* any talk of amnesty. If you can't secure the border, it becomes a revolving door. Once you grant amnesty to those here illegally, their families rush the border to be the next to get amnesty and the beat goes on. From: "fleetwood_macncheese@...

Funny that now everyone sees it as a Democratic strategy. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : The *children* will probably be granted refuge status which means their parents, brothers and sisters will naturally be allowed to join them here.

It has a shortage of jobs - that's the important issue - the people have spoken. "The irresponsible immigration policy has created a surplus of workers. Illegal alien amnesty will make that surplus much worse.
