If you take illegals working below minimum, make them legal thereby subjecting them and their employers to wage law protections (minimum wage is terrible FWIW) and also giving them the ability to negotiate wages without the threat of deportation...it is a reasonable statement to suggest wages will increase...but only for the bottom of the bottom.
If the owner of ______ Farms ( in the state of NC as one example) has to suddenly pay their usual $3-4 dollar an hour illegal workers- $7.25 an hour to pick strawberries and blueberries. They will hire the Americans. The Americans, that are losing their college PT jobs at Burger King drive thrus and shipping and receiving at Lowe's; to 40 year old men trying to raise a family. (SEE: THE HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT STATES: WHERE I HAVE BEEN TOLD THIS IS HAPPENING)
Ask any illegal Mexican in NC and they will tell you in two languages that they work here illegally (or half-ass legally now under Obama.)They will tell you that when their goal of about $35K is reached they will return to Mexico and buy a massive ranch and live like kings. The value of the dollar is making a lot of them currently return to Mexico.(Where I am sure they will receive absentee ballots to vote for Obama (or whatever dem) in the mail.)
It is all a big, sad joke. We already have billions of wasted IRS refunds due to Identity theft,
due to the Clinton IRS loop hole
which is a massive abuse of missing money at the IRS.
Also, allowing illegals to file taxes for massive (even retroactive) refunds in billions of dollars using EIC
with all of their children.
It is a mess and the only thing the gang of eight is doing is making it so massive in failure that we may collapse just from an immigration bill. They all need to be stopped on both sides of the aisle. Only Cruz and Rand Paul seem to be telling the truth and speaking out.
