Is Immigration Reform Bad for African-Americans?

The new Immigration Reform Bill only betters the plight of Mexican border jumpers

AFRICANGLOBE – Members of the African American Leadership Council harshly denounced immmigration reform legislation currently being considered in the U.S. Senate. According to Frank Morris, who heads the group, the bill will ensure that the African-American unemployment rate continues to be double the national figure.

For years, Morris argues, employers have preferred to hire undocumented workers because they are a cheap source of labor and depress wages and employment rates for low-skilled American citizens.

“They’re the ones employers have wanted to hire because they can cheat them on overtime and salary and keep them off the books,” he stated after the group’s Wednesday morning press conference. “So, we have the irony of noncitizen workers who benefitted from non-enforcement of immigration and labor laws.”

Morris also scoffed at the notion that undocumented workers aren’t really competing with African-Americans in the workforce because they’re willing to take jobs that nobody else will. He said that immigrants are overwhelmingly taking jobs away from Blacks in three sectors: hospitality services, construction and light manufacturing now and in the future.

“The bill will permit folks who should not be here to not only have official access to jobs that many of them are already getting, but also benefits like the earned income tax credit where there’s already a strain and we see Congress limiting these safety-net benefits,” Morris said.

The traditional civil rights groups that are part of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights believe that the members of the African American Leadership Council, a majority of whom are pastors, have extreme views and in fact lead no one.

“Actual civil rights leaders view immigration reform as a defining civil and human rights issue of our time. The opinions expressed in today’s press conference are not shared by most African-Americans, civil rights leaders, members of the Congressional Black Caucus or any other significant constituency in the African-American community,” said Leadership Conference president and CEO Wade Henderson. “African-Americans are certainly not monolithic in their thinking on this or any other issue, but we know that the nation’s immigration system is broken and that the status quo does not serve our economic or long-term interests.”

Indeed, the CBC wants to ensure that reform legislation would ensure that Blacks are given adequate opportunities to move to the U.S. Currently, the legislation calls for an end of “diversity” visas, that have been a pathway for many African and Caribbean immigrants.

“We are concerned that the Diversity Visa Program has been eliminated. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus’s Taskforce on Immigration Reform are currently reviewing the bill to make sure it addresses the unique concerns of the Black Immigrant and African-American communities, particularly in ensuring diversity of immigrants, justice reform and efforts to invest in STEM programs at minority-serving institutions remain top priorities,” said CBC chair Rep. Marcia Fudge.

AFRICAN AMERICA IS AT WAR

THERE IS A RACE WAR ON AFRICAN AMERICA

THERE IS A RACE WAR ON AFRICAN AMERICANS

THERE IS A RACE WAR ON BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA

AMERICA'S RACISTS HAVE INFILTRATED AMERICAN POLICE FORCES TO WAGE A RACE WAR AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA

THE BLACK RACE IS AT WAR

FIRST WORLD WAR:  THE APPROXIMATELY 6,000 YEAR WORLD WAR ON AFRICA AND THE BLACK RACE

Original Post

On of the problems is this, the U.S. allows very few African descended people into the country, while the floodgates are open for mostly everyone else. Another problem is just what was addressed here,  the corporate sponsorship of illegal immigrants. While in many states the problem lies with Latin Americans, up north the problem is eastern Europeans. Something I noted here years ago. Now I'm proven correct in my assessment ie Boston Bombers. But they have no fear of prosecution, even now.
I've heard people over the years talk about the California issue and black people. I at  first thought they were crazy, but now not so much when I look at the demographics of Los Angeles. As you all also know, I am against the Dream Act... we have too much going on with the underemployed and unemployed here to get worried about some other folks.

If amnesty type immigration for people who break the law is not working for African Americans or African descended people then what are the options??

I commend you, Marvin Stewart, former Board Director of the Minuteman Project and other Minutemen, for your understanding of a most important function of all elected officials and the duty of elected officials to respect the Constitution and his or her oath of office when serving U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

Evidently, the CBC and other Black leaders who previously promoted the Amnesty/Dream act, must now realize that his or her future is on the chopping block too, because make no mistake as the Black community is driven into extinction behind our own leaders serving every other ethnic group but U.S. born blacks, there will not be any future need for the CBC, other U.S. born Black leaders at the State, County, and City jurisdictions of government, because Hispanics, Koreans, Jamaicans, the Somali, Kenyans, Ethiopians, Jews, etc., etc., generally promote individuals who have a cultural connection to his or her specific ethnic group......that is unless they can find a Clarence Thomas type fool, who will deliver more than what they can get from his or her own leaders, that also sends U.S. born blacks to the gallows.

As if to say Black illegal aliens from Africa (Kenya, Somalia, Nigeria, etc., etc.,) and other countries (the West Indies, Jamaica, Trinidad, Belize, the Honduras, etc., etc.) are not undercutting U.S. born Black men and women in the job market, displacing U.S. born Blacks, passing fraudulent documents with the blessing of unethical/sleazy U.S. born individuals to hold good paying jobs, and bringing in or dealing "illicit drugs" to U.S. born Blacks in Detroit, MI,  Baltimore, MD, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Compton, Inglewood, CA, Pacoima, CA, Pomona, CA, Oakland, New Orleans, LA, Newark, NJ, New York, NY, etc., etc., all at the expense of the rights of U.S. citizens and legal immigrants. 

 

Many Illegal aliens should be deported and should not have preference over U.S. citizens and legal immigrants, period, no matter what country he or she migrated from to enter the U.S. illegally.

Your buddy, President Barack Obama to whom, possibly a lot of you voted for is also the Chief executive.

US Constitution, Article. II., Section. 1.

The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:

......Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Since President Barack "the Magic Negro" Obama and his appointee U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder  have held office there have been more un-Constitutional infractions against U.S. citizens, more freedoms for illegal aliens, and you can forget Constitutional protections for any U.S. born descendant of slavery, because Barack Obama could care less, the unemployment rate of Black men and women is the highest it has ever been, more Drone strikes than ever, U.S. soldiers....U.S. Veterans are more vulnerable than during any previous U.S. President, or Presidential Administration.

After all, more than any other U.S. President, President Barack Obama is more likely to be used, because as it stands Barack Obama will to throw anyone under the bus to promote himself, to make history to be the first Black President, to keep from being held accountable for unethical, criminal, illegal, un-Constitutional, inhumane, and treasonous decisions he has made, or will make. 

 

If former President George Bush were to give the order commit all the inhumane things in Sub-Sahara Africa that have occurred during President Barack Obama's tenure, U.S. born Black men and women would have been marching on the White House, protesting, condemning the President, you name it.

THE JOB OF A CONGRESSMAN

 

“There are cases where an individual has been wrongfully treated by his government and about the only way, unless the individual resorts tocourt, and even in some cases the courts are not able to give proper relief, the only area or avenue open to the individual is through his representative. When you find a bona fide error has been made, I suggest that you make a maximum effort to remedy it. This I feel is a vital and important function of those of us in the House of Representatives”.
