(OR: Hillary’s absolute mess with Illegals.)
Yesterday, Hillary Rodham Clinton announced she reversed her position on illegals in this Country. Thinkers should have expected it. It may be a mountain too high to climb, but with her millions of worshipers only time will tell. (She can always count on 107,000,000 of the population to believe her every word.) Certainly her Sherpas will maintain base camp for her.
The flip flop does provide a wonderful example of the flawed thinking of Progressives when it comes to talking about and solving the illegals problem. The most obvious is their calling illegals, immigrants. This diversion is on purpose. What you need to think about is what she said. Rooster will paraphrase it, since she went on and on.
The essence of her statement. We must grant amnesty to the immigrants. We must, because they are taking jobs away from American Workers. They will line up to work for less, and avoid minimum wage and otherwise are unfair to the American Work Force. If we grant them amnesty (Progressives mean Citizenship.) this will force them to work for the prevailing wage and compete with American workers on a level playing field. This will solve inequality and put Americans back to work.
There are several head-in-the-sand problems with her thought. Most of the illegals do work at prevailing wages. It is too dangerous for an employer not to, because of the fines and penalties State and Fed. Governments impose for not doing so. Exceptions exist. Their illegal status does not prevent them from putting the employer to the rack. Another is that it has never been unequal to hold a better job than your neighbor or anybody else. Another is adding millions to a work force that already has millions out of work, does not solve unemployment, under any circumstances.
The most glaring error is either a purposeful falsehood or a clear and defining example of Common Sense Disability. Either way it is dangerous. If you missed it here it is. Granting amnesty to the existing illegals does not stop new ones from showing up across our leaky border. She implies it will. History tells us it has never happened. Ask Italy how it is going with their illegals. Certainly if MS Clinton is president the border will stay porous. Making Chinese workers legal back in the dark ages of American history solved nothing, except their citizenship. The closest example of a failed amnesty program was in 1980. Reagan ran against Carter. Both were in favor of amnesty. Neither promised to close the border. Amnesty was granted and almost immediately we had millions of new illegals, standing in line. Again it did nothing for the labor force. It simply made room for more Illegals and kept people out of work. During Obama’s “tour de destruction” the border has become more porous and any State that has tried to stop the leaks, gets its thumbs cut off. Since Hillary is now in full support of Obama’s warped or false thinking, voting for her will certainly not solve this problem. It will create big problems.
