The flood of low-skilled illegal aliens into the U.S. has eroded the low-skilled job market for American blacks and driven the labor participation rate for this sector to dangerous lows.

This replacement of lower skilled black Americans with illegal aliens has a profound effect on the American economy and the social make up of the black community in America.

“It’s a bigger threat to black livelihood,” Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said, adding that illegal immigration “dwarfs” the more inflammatory issues of police brutality, saying, “When you look at the hundreds of thousands of blacks thrown out of work over the years as a result of the competitive pressure the downstream effects are profound.”

The number of unemployed black workers in the U.S. is soaring, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Over 12.2 million black people of working age were not in the labor force in March, meaning they had neither been employed nor actively sought a job for at least four weeks.

 

The labor force participation rate for black men ages 20 and older is more than 5 percentage points lower than it is for white men, and for those in the labor force, the black unemployment rate is more than double the white unemployment rate, at 10.1 percent versus 4.7 percent.

While the jobless numbers are eye-popping in a bad way, the knock-on effects of unemployment and the lack of upward mobility in the job market has destructive effects socially.  Many of the problems urban protesters complain about are a downwind effect of the illegal immigration influx.

“When unemployment rates increase, black institutionalization rates also increase. Individuals who don’t have jobs are less likely to be married or to get married, which means you are more likely to have kids out of wedlock. It’s a self-perpetuating negative cycle,” Mr. Kirsanow said. “These are the things that the Congressional Black Caucus and the president have refused to address and are things that are tremendously harmful to the prospects of black Americans economically, socially and culturally.”

The effect of illegal immigration on wages in the U.S. is a hotly debated topic.  However, the data for lower skilled workers tends to be pretty clear cut:

A 2007 study by economists George Borjas and Lawrence Katz found that increases in immigrant workers from 1990 to 2006 reduced the wages of low-skilled workers by 4.7 percent and college graduates by 1.7 percent.

In 2009 Mr. Borjas, a Harvard professor, specifically studied the effects of immigration on the economic status of black men and found that a 10 percent immigrant-induced increase in the supply of a particular skill group reduced black wages by 2.5 percent, lowered the employment rate of black men by 5.9 percentage points and increased the incarceration rate of blacks by 1.3 percentage points.

“It is evident that there is a negative correlation between changes in employment propensities and the immigrant share, and that the correlation is stronger for black men,” Mr. Borjas wrote.

This is not a new point. It’s been made publically many times but never seems to get the play it deserves.

“The long-term, large-scale flow of immigration into the United States has worked to erode both the wages and employment prospects of African-American workers,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interests, in a statement to The Times.

Simple, common-sense approaches to illegal immigration would have a big impact on black employment.

“We are not serious about securing the border; we are not serious about enforcement; we are not serious about e-verify. All of these things would be extremely helpful to low-skilled workers and, particularly, black Americans,” Mr. Kirsanow said.

Dan and Julie Golvach testified before the subcommittee of the Texas Senate Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee about the effect Obama’s Open Borders policy had on their lives when their son Spencer was shot in the head by an illegal alien who had been deported numerous times.

Golvach testified that his son “played by the rules,” held two jobs, had employees and paid a lot of taxes. He said “This is what his federal government did to him, did for him –nothing.” Golvach told the subcommittee “they’re not following the laws and the ramification of that is that I have a dead son.” He said it was “the constitutional duty” of elected officials to protect Americans, but he has a dead son because officials are not performing their duty.

Julie Golvach told the Senators that the loss of her son has been “completely catastrophic.” She added, “I no longer feel comfortable in my own country” and, that it is a “frightening reality that our borders are not secured.”

You can see the Golvach’s testimony here:

The subcommittee also heard testimony from former Air Force reservist Pedro Rivera.

He told the Senators that Latinos do not want to throw out the laws, and the media does not want to hear this. He added, “It is not a Latino issue. It is an American issue.” The retired Air Force Reservist said he was an “American first” who was there to “represent the American-first Latinos.”

Rivera wore a shirt with a photograph of Drew Rosenberg on it. Rosenberg was a young man who was killed in California in 2010 when he was on his way home from school. Rosenberg was run over and over, three times. Rivera told the Senators that 5,000 people where killed the same year by illegal aliens. He said “Our families are not safe. We need to protect our families. I want to protect your family.”

 

The illegal alien crime wave is accelerating.  In a leaked report, the Texas Department of Public Safety accounted for crimes committed by those who have snuck into the country illegally.

Illegal aliens apprehended in Texas in 2014 numbered 313,100. Department of Homeland Security statistics reveal that more than 96,000 illegal aliens were arrested for criminal offenses and jailed between June 2011 and December 2014 in Texas alone. The crimes – 561 homicides, 27,588 assaults, 8,984 burglaries, 31,154 drug charges, 394 kidnappings, 17,133 thefts, 23,476 obstructing law enforcement charges, 1,972 robberies, 2,836 sexual assaults, and 3,770 weapons charges.  The Report stated that these numbers are likely an undercount of all the crime in Texas committed by illegal aliens.

Likely an undercount is likely an understatement.  No doubt the mainstream media will play up the plight of illegal aliens both here and on the way.  But somehow, they never seem to find the time to report on real Americans who have suffered real tragedies because of lax border enforcement.

Border agents caught about 152,000 illegals crossing the U.S.-Mexico border over the last six months, 28% less than the same period last year. Obama administration officials attribute the decline to a stem in the tide of people coming from Central America:

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the administration and governments in Central America were successfully countering the false message that people who made it across would get to stay in the U.S.

The numbers of unaccompanied children caught at the border, 15,627, is down 45% from the same time a year earlier. The totals have fallen dramatically since their peak last June, when a flood of children and families fleeing crime and poverty in Central America provoked a border crisis.

Johnson also credits the investment in increased border security over the last decade:

“The word’s gotten out that it’s now harder than it used to be to cross our southern border,” Johnson said, adding that people were now more reluctant to pay hefty fees to a “coyote,” or smuggler, to take their relatives north. “People risk a failed investment.”

Of course, many would still argue that the southern border remains extremely porous and wide open to illegals.

Study Shows Middle Class Incomes Crushed by Immigrationhttp://minutemanproject.com/study-shows-middle-class-incomes-crushed-by-immigration/ http://minutemanproject.com/study-shows-middle-class-incomes-crushed-by-immigration/#comments Fri, 24 Apr 2015 18:50:21 +0000 http://minutemanproject.com/?p=8428 A new Congressional Research Service study shows middle class wages have dropped below 1970’s levels as immigration levels rose.

A new Congressional Research Service study shows middle class wages have dropped below 1970’s levels as immigration levels rose.

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service report studied immigration and middle class income from 1945-2013 and found that as immigration slowed between 1945 and 1970, American incomes increased.

But when immigration expanded, the incomes of the bottom 90 percent of Americans went flat and then dropped beginning in 2000.

In the report to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the CRS reported that the foreign-born population of the United States surged 324.5 percent, from 9,740,000 to 41,348,066, from 1970 to 2013.

And as that happened, incomes of the bottom 90 percent dropped 7.9 percent in 2013 dollars, from an average of $33,621 to $30,980.

The mass immigration effect is pronounced when the data is split up into pre and post-1970 eras.  1970 represents a beginning of the current era of open immigration policy.

 

2. From 1945-1970, how did overall wages change for the bottom 90% of earners?

 

Answer – The reported income of the bottom 90% of tax filers in the United States increased from an average of $18,418 in 1945 to $33,621 in 1970 for an aggregate change of $15,202 or a percent increase of 82.5% over this 25 year period.

 

3. From 1945-1970, what was the net change in the share of income held by the bottom 90% of the U.S. income distribution?

 

Answer – The share of income held by the bottom 90% of the U.S. income distribution increased from 67.4% in 1945 to 68.5% in 1970, an absolute increase of 1.1 percentage points over this 25 year period.

With all the attention the mainstream media pays to questions of income inequality, you would think this study would make a huge splash.  Yet, it’s unlikely they will feature these findings. It should also raise questions about efforts to increase H1-B high tech visa numbers and what that would mean for American IT workers.

Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) has reintroduced legislation to allow illegal immigrants to get citizenship if they complete a terms in the U.S. military.

Known as the ENLIST Act, Denham has offered it before as both a stand along bill and as amendments to several defense bills.

House leaders prevented a vote on the ENLIST Act in 2014 as an amendment to the defense authorization bill.

It’s expected to be part of the debate over this years’ defense authorization bill sometime in May.

Deportations Plummet After Obama’s Amnestyhttp://minutemanproject.com/deportations-plummet-after-obamas-amnesty/ http://minutemanproject.com/deportations-plummet-after-obamas-amnesty/#comments Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:31:02 +0000 http://minutemanproject.com/?p=8423 The early numbers are in and Obama’s immigration enforcement actions are looking like a complete failure.

The early numbers are in and Obama’s immigration enforcement actions are looking like a complete failure.

The numbers for the first six months of fiscal year 2015, which began Oct. 1, are striking: The government has deported just 117,181 immigrants, which is just three-quarters of the 157,365 immigrations kicked out during that same period a year earlier, according to figures provided to Congress.

Overall, deportations are down a stunning 41 percent in the last three years — and the drop began almost exactly at the beginning of Mr. Obama’s 2012 temporary deportation amnesty for so-called Dreamers.

President Obama would argue his executive actions are designed to root out criminal illegal aliens and make sure they get sent packing. However, it looks like he’s once again missed the boat.

Through April 4, 2015, the government had kicked out about 68,000 criminals, down 30 percent from the approximately 96,500 criminals deported during the same period a year earlier.

Now, President Obama may have an excuse for his woeful immigration law enforcement numbers: he’s being stymied by hundreds of state and local government which are refusing to help enforce federal immigration law.

Ms. Christensen also said her agency has been stymied by the more than 200 states, cities and counties that have passed laws and ordinances preventing police from cooperating with federal immigration authorities. ICE counts thousands of immigrants that localities have refused to hold for ICE agents to come pick up.

“When laws and ordinances are passed limiting the use of detainers, ICE must expend additional staff and resources to develop and execute operations to locate and arrest convicted criminals at large,” she said.

ICE caved to local pressure and, as part of Mr. Obama’s new November amnesty, scrapped its program that asked locales to hold illegal immigrants for pickup once they’ve cleared processing. Many of those municipalities had said they believed it was unconstitutional for them to hold people on immigration charges.

Obama can’t claim he doesn’t have the funds necessary to fulfill his oath of office to faithfully execute the Offfice of President.

Homeland Security and ICE officials have said they are budgeted to deport about 400,000 people a year, but they are on pace to deport less than 250,000 in fiscal year 2015.

It looks like Barack Obama can easily refute the radical National Council of La Raza’s leader who called him “deporter-in-chief.”

Federal border officials do not expect the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing into the U.S. from Central America this year to escalate into a crisis like it did in the summer of 2014, citing stepped-up enforcement on the border and Mexico apprehending more of the children before they could reach the U.S.:

About 68,000 unaccompanied minors, mainly from Central America, crossed into the U.S. last summer, inundating border patrol, which could not handle the workload. President Barack Obama received nearly $4 billion from Congress to redeploy agents and immigration judges to the border and expedite deportations. Unaccompanied children crossing the border rose 90 percent from 2013 to 2014, according to the Migration Policy Institute.

“I’m happy to say all the work we’ve done last year is bearing fruit,” Daniel Ragsdale, deputy director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told the Border Security Expo Wednesday in Phoenix, according to the AP. Also addressing the conference was Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ronald D. Vitello, who said “this year is far better off than last year.”

The 2014 border crisis was largely attributed to Central Americans’ misunderstanding of U.S. immigration policy:

The border crisis was believed to be fueled by misinterpretations of immigration law among Central Americans who believed the U.S. would not deport children who cross the border. The U.S. then created a public information campaign in the affected countries — El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras – to let people know that the children would be turned away if they crossed the border.

Mexico apprehended 22,000 Central American children in 2014, three times more than were apprehended in 2013.

Obama Unveils National Strategy to “Integrate” Millions of Immigrantshttp://minutemanproject.com/obama-unveils-national-strategy-to-integrate-millions-of-immigrants/ http://minutemanproject.com/obama-unveils-national-strategy-to-integrate-millions-of-immigrants/#comments Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:39:26 +0000 http://minutemanproject.com/?p=8414 Part of President Obama’s executive diktat issued back in November 2014 was the creation of a White House Task Force on New Americans which recently held a conference to sort out how the White House was going to integrate millions of immigrants and refugees into so-called “Welcoming Communities”.

Part of President Obama’s executive diktat issued back in November 2014 was the creation of a White House Task Force on New Americans which recently held a conference to sort out how the White House was going to integrate millions of immigrants and refugees into so-called “Welcoming Communities”.

The co-chair of the task force, Obama’s domestic policy adviser Cecilia Muñoz, said her focus is on making sure Obama’s historic immigration policies get “institutionalized” so they will live on long after she and her boss are gone from the White House.

Munoz was a former executive with the National Council of La Raza, the radical pro-Mexico group which has advocated the return of the Southwest U.S. to Mexico. Her commission is:

 “to make sure we build this really into the DNA across the federal bureaucracy, at a leadership level, but much more importantly to make sure that when political appointees like me are no longer here this (immigration strategy) is built into what those agencies do and think about every day.”

The centralized nature of Obama’s bureaucratic strategy to integrate millions of immigrants into his legacy political machine really comes out with the comments of

Eva Millona, co-chair of National Partnership for New Americans, a coalition of 34 organizations involved in everything from protecting immigrant rights to providing social services, echoed the call for a strong federal role.

“We have been pushing to really have a centralized leadership in terms of implementation of this report,” Millona said. “We are happy that the report has called for a centralized entity to really move it forward.”

Of course not all of Obama’s efforts to force immigrants on communities is directly part of the federal government.  He has the support of a network of billionaires who have their own agendas.

Preparing the receiving communities requires agitators on the ground at the local level. Their role is to combat any push back that might be encountered from local residents.

One big player in this propaganda war is Welcoming America, which was started with seed money from billionaire George Soros. Its stated mission is to work at the grassroots level, setting up “welcoming communities” in cities and counties across the U.S. Soros’s Open Society Institute granted the organization $150,000 in December 2010.

Welcoming America is not  focused on immigrants but is designed to attack and destory opposition to the Open Border lobby.

David Lubell, executive director of Welcoming America, said his organization brings a new approach to immigration, focusing on resident populations of the “receiving communities” as much as the immigrants.

His role is to soften up the soil, getting it ready for the planting of the seedlings.

Political and business elites are working right now behind the scenes to dramatically remake American society through mass immigration.  They do so despite poll after poll of Americans who oppose their schemes.  However, since they have billions in funding and have a President willing to abuse his Institutional power at will, they are moving forward with their plans.

Census: 51 Million Immigrants in 8 Years – 82% of Population Growthhttp://minutemanproject.com/census-51-million-immigrants-in-8-years-82-of-population-growth/ http://minutemanproject.com/census-51-million-immigrants-in-8-years-82-of-population-growth/#respond Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:39:41 +0000 http://minutemanproject.com/?p=8406 Washington Examiner — Legal and illegal immigrants will hit a record high of 51 million in just eight years and eventually account for an astounding 82 percent of all population growth in America, according to new U.S. Census figures.

Washington Examiner — Legal and illegal immigrants will hit a record high of 51 million in just eight years and eventually account for an astounding 82 percent of all population growth in America, according to new U.S. Census figures.

A report from the Center for Immigration Studies that analyzed the statistics said that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the immigrant population totals 78 million.

The report was provided to Secrets and released Wednesday evening.

The surge in immigrant population, both legal and illegal, threatens to slam into the presidential campaign as GOP candidates move to figure out what their position is and the president tries to use executive powers to exempt some 5 million illegals from deportation.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker disrupted the debate this week when he said that legal immigration also needs to be reformed to make sure Americans don’t suffer by losing jobs to new citizens.

But even more, the CIS report said that the surge in mostly legal immigrants will have a huge impact on the nation and taxpayers.

“These numbers have important implications for workers, schools, infrastructure, congestion and the environment,” said Steven Camarota, the center’s director of research. “They also may have implications for our ability to successfully assimilate and integrate immigrants. Yet there has been almost no national debate about bringing in so many people legally each year, which is the primary factor driving these numbers.”

Those numbers are likely to shake up Washington’s political debate over the 12 million illegals in America, the expected 70,000 expected to pour over the border this year and the 4.4 million legal immigrants on a State Department waiting list who have relatives or jobs in the U.S.

A key senator steering the immigration debate, Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions, has warned that higher numbers of immigrants will hurt the middle class. In a letter to the New York Times Saturday, he wrote, “It defies reason to argue that the record admission of new foreign workers has no negative effect on the wages of American workers, including the wages of past immigrants hoping to climb into the middle class. Why would many of the largest business groups in the United States spend millions lobbying for the admission of more foreign workers if such policies did not cut labor costs?”

On Friday, key business leaders including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a group associated with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg plan to pitch for more immigration. Their schedule is below.

The numbers, as seen in the highlights below, will also raise concerns that Washington is giving the keys to the nation to new immigrants:

• The immigrant population will grow four times faster than the native born population, reaching 15.8 percent, or 57 million, of the nation’s population in 2030, 17.1 percent, or 65 million, in 2040, and 18.8 percent, or 78 million, in 2060.

• Net immigration this year will be 1.24 million; green cards about 1.1 million.

• Immigrants and their descendants “will account for the overwhelming share of population growth,” said the Center in projecting growth. They will account for 75.5 percent from 2010-2050 and 82 percent from 2010-2060.

• Census Bureau projects that in 2023 the nation’s immigrant population, legal and illegal, will reach 14.8 percent of the total U.S. population, the highest share ever recorded.

The Texas Department of Public Safety has just released a set of shocking photos taken by remote cameras which show illegals openly crossing the Southern Border carrying firearms and drugs.

Operation Drawbridge, a joint effort of the Texas Department of Public Safety and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, is the name given to a series of camera installed along a 1,200 mile  stretch of border which is mostly undefended.

Authorities in Texas say they don’t have the manpower to blanket the entire southern border with personal. Instead, they rely on Operation Drawbridge cameras to alert them to individuals crossing the border. Law enforcement is then deployed to the scene.

 

“Every day, sheriff’s deputies, police officers, Border Patrol agents and state law enforcement officers in the Texas border region risk their lives to protect Texas and the entire nation from Mexican cartels and transnational crime,” Texas DPS director Steven McCraw said. “This innovative use of technology has proven to be a force multiplier in detecting the smuggling attempts along the border, which is critical to interdicting criminal activity occurring between the ports of entry.”

The ease with which Mexican drug cartels can move drugs and weapons across the border makes the recent leak about ISIS camps 8 miles from the border an even greater threat.  It’s clear the border is less secure than ever thanks to Barack Obama willful disregard for Border Security and now Americans may pay the ultimate price for that political decision.
