... part and parcel of the case for allowing unrestricted immigration is that immigrants are poorer than the average American. They’d have to be, wouldn’t they? After all (or so we are told):For added they're lying to us points, there's this:
I mean hey, if you’ve got a better explanation, let’s hear it.
- Lots of American employers ‘want to hire’ immigrants. Why would this be?
- Because, presumably, immigrants are cheaper/more efficient to hire. Why would this be?
- Because, presumably, they’re willing to do the same job(s) at a lower wage than natives would. Why would this be?
- Because they’re poorer.
Okay, so again, we see that if we take pro-immigration arguments to heart, they make sense only on the assumption, belief, expectation, or empirical observation that the immigrants we’re allowing to enter are poorer than the average native.This whole amnesty issue has scraped layers of libertarian coating off of me, exposing the core of liberal values I grew up with. From a liberal perspective, this amnesty is horrible public policy because it further impoverishes the poor. And quite frankly, it's all the evidence you need to refute the dumb What's The Matter With Kansas silliness.
Poorer. But at the same time they don’t use social services at any higher rate.
How can this be? Why would it be? What is the open-borders explanation? Do you believe it?
Do immigrants, as a rule, have social strictures or taboos against making use of government services? That’s almost like you’re saying that immigrants are somehow culturally-different than Americans, which would be Racist.
Is the idea supposed to be that in the U.S., government social-service providers are, as a class, really good, motivated and efficient at weeding out immigrants and withholding taxpayer-funded benefits from them?

The Democrats have breath taking contempt for poor minorities - especially African Americans who like Rihanna keep voting for their Democratic Chris Brown - and care only about new potential votes rather than their existing clients. The Republicans are stunning in their stupidity here - if they can't cause some internal fractures with the Democrats, they deserve to go the way of the Whigs. Of course, they don't do this because the Chamber of Commerce donations to the Gang of Eight would dry up.
