‘Secondly, the increase in the foreign-born working-age population over the past year (1.29 million) exceeds the number of legal immigrants admitted annually, which has been running at about 1 million. Obvious implication: A strong U.S. job market is drawing illegals into country. Contra President Obama, the news is not a “very welcome sign for millions of Americans”, but a “very welcome sign” for millions of immigrant workers, many of them illegal.’

  1. These foreigners are just doing the jobs that Americans don’t want to do! And they will keep electing leaders that Americans don’t want to elect, and eventually they will shoot the dissidents that Americans don’t want to shoot!

    The troublesome old America must make way for the compliant New America.
