Democrats have used the excuse for years that illegal aliens, or as they call them, undocumented immigrants are a necessity to do jobs that Americans won’t do, but those claims have repeatedly proven to be misleading, and blatantly false! Regardless, the Mainstream Media have refused to report the evidence and allowed Democrats to continue pushing the false narrative
This past week, it was revealed that ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) raided chicken plants in Mississippi, bringing about outrage and condemnation from the new radical left, as they decry removing illegal aliens from their place of work or home is abhorrent, despite their illegal activity under the United States Constitution!
However, once again, within days of the ICE raids in Mississippi, the facts prove the left wrong once again! In fact, removing those who have entered the United States illegally has opened up jobs, and Americans in need of a job have been applying to the plant during a job fair! In fact, after ICE removed hundreds of illegal aliens from a Koch Foods plant, more than 200 local residents came looking for work, and responded to online ads for jobs, that were unavailable to them before! After all, companies like Koch Foods can hire an illegal alien to work at slave wages, to do the same job that they would have to pay an American, at least minimum wage, if not more!
The Clarion-Ledger reported…
About 25 to 30 people showed up to apply for jobs at Koch Foods’ nearby poultry processing plant. Of those, about an equal number were black, white or Latino.
“This is what you’d normally see here,” said Dianne Bell, communications director for the Mississippi Department of Employment Security, of the job fair held between 9 and 11 a.m.
In addition, the Associated Press reported how the plant had kept wages low, driving Americans away from the jobs, including veterans to the plant…
The 25-year-old [Eddie Nicholson] has worked in chicken plants before and was considering a return, but wanted to see if wages had gone up. Plants in recent years have typically paid $11 to $12 an hour, according to labor statistics, but Nicholson said he wants $15 an hour.
Like Nicholson, many who applied Monday were chicken plant veterans. They understand the arduous and sometimes dangerous work of slaughtering, butchering and packaging chicken, from hanging up live chickens, to pulling off skin, to cutting with super-sharp knives, to boxing up chicken, much of it done in near-freezing temperatures. The line moves fast and people repeat the same motions over and over.
“It’s definitely hard,” said Cedric Griffith of Magee, who said he’s been working at McDonald’s after getting fired from another chicken processor for missing too many days. “You’re going to lose of lot of weight. Nine times out of 10, when that week is over, you’re tired.”
Reports indicate that these types of jobs, which draw on illegal aliens, intentionally keep the pay so low for Americans, that it forces Americans away from those jobs, leaving them open to bringing in illegal aliens, who they can pay at a fraction of the normal-wage, as they would have to pay their legal American counter-parts!
After all, if you are already bringing the laws by hiring illegal aliens, who is going to stop you from paying them below the legal wage?
Breitbart News reported…
Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university. This total includes roughly 800,000 Americans who graduate with skilled degrees in business or health care, engineering or science, software or statistics.
But the federal government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes a resident population of roughly 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately 1 million H-1B workers and spouses — plus roughly 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.
The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.
This policy of inflating the labor supply boosts economic growth for investors because it transfers wages to investors and ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.
In total, seven food processing plants were raided, as more than 680 illegal aliens were arrested, and of those 300 were later released! In total, it was the largest bust of illegal aliens in more than ten years. Regardless, left-wing so-called journalists like Fox News’ Shepard Smith, showed how they have no regard for the rule of law in America, as they try to paint law enforcement as evil for arresting those who violate America’s immigration laws…
According to a statement released by the Southern District of Mississippi’s United States Attorney’s office, it was the largest workplace enforcement action in American history, despite nearly half of those detained being released within hours! Unfortunately, until our United States Congress allows the President of the United States to secure the border, and until the companies who are hiring illegal aliens are severely punished, the cycle of illegal aliens who are entering the United States to take jobs and benefits from the American citizens who desperately need those jobs, this cycle will never stop, and the illegal aliens will continue to come in the thousands!
