Please contact your senators to oppose legalization of 12 million illegal aliens and millions more of their relatives available to come through "chain migration."
Are you working? You're earning an average of $1,700 less per year due to immigrant competition (George Borjas, Harvard Economist). Are you jobless? There is 24 percent white youth unemployment, 40 percent black unemployment, 30 percent vets unemployment. Entry level and low-skill workers will kiss 8 million jobs goodbye.
Do you pay taxes? In 2007, the U.S. national debt was $9 trillion. Illegal low-skilled immigrants paid less in taxes than they took in benefits, a shortfall over $2 trillion (Heritage Foundation).
Hispanics (most illegals) bank-wired over $15 billion outside the U.S. through Walmart alone. The CBO estimates legalizing 12 million uneducated low earning workers will cost an additional $48.6 billion in healthcare from 2014-2019.
Do you admire what I believe is the Hispanic world view of individual freedom and "No Reglas Fijas," no fixed rules i.e. moral relativism? Feelings are important, not absolute moral concepts like justice, fair play and following rules.
Illegals break a minimum of two laws (immigration and employment) plus they are often involved in ID theft to get a Social Security number (third law). Then they whine when or if they are deported.
In 50 years of essentially open borders, we've gained a demographic with the highest rate of school dropouts, three times the unmarried birth rate, and 3.45 times the incarceration rates of whites (Heather McDonald: "Illegal immigration's Family Breakdown").
Are you laws-abiding? WTHR-TV Indianapolis reported that Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) filers of IRS returns (illegal aliens who file) report multiple children as dependents and get additional Child Tax Credits for children "back home." Skyrocketing fraud to currently over $4 billion.
The illegal interviewed said "Why not take the money, it's there." His trailer house was listed as home to four more illegals getting $29,000-plus for 21 children-one in residence. No Reglas Fijas.
Please call Senators Hatch and Lee toll-free at 888-978-3094 and ask them to vote "no" to S. 744.
