Tea Party and Black minimum wage workers.

Saying the political landscape will not be more conducive to amnesty legislation in two or four years, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue wrote on Monday that immigration reform must happen now.

Donohue has previously said that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce would "pull out all the stops" to get immigration reform this year. The group reportedly plans to spend $50 million to blunt the influence of the Tea Party, largely because it opposes amnesty, and millions more to push for immigration reform legislation that the Congressional Budget Office has said would lower the wages of American workers.

Donohue wrote that "a system in which more than 11 million undocumented immigrants are living and working in our communities in de facto amnesty is indefensible" and claimed that "immigrants do not typically compete with Americans for jobs" and "serve as a complement to U.S.-born workers and can help fill labor shortages across the skill spectrum and in key sectors."

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has repeatedly emphasized that big-business interests want immigration reform legislation to get cheaper labor at the expense of the those in America's working class that are struggling in Obama's economy.<snip>

Americans will work at Burger King if the pay was better. I can't understand why Black minimum wage workers say nothing about the cheap labor from south of the border that helps to keep their pay so low.

The only thing standing in the way of immigration reform is the tea party. This month Boehner was afraid to support even an extremely watered-down version because of the threat of retaliation from the baggers. Until the Republican Party grows a pair and tells them to take a hike nothing will get done.

Why on earth are you in favor of immigration reform Omar? In order for you to come out in favor of it, you could not possibly know what is in it.

Or you can prove me wrong and tell me the positive changes that will come about for Americans if immigration reform takes place, can you do that?

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is not doing this because they love the idea of 11 million people wanting to be free. They know that as Americans citizens their workers will have access to county, state and federal programs to help make a subsidy of their income. Why pay their employees more money when we can have the government do. \:D/

McDonald's helps workers get food stamps.

The new welfare queens are even bigger, richer and less deserving of taxpayer support. The two biggest welfare queens in America today are Wal-Mart and McDonald's.

This issue has become more known as we learn just how far some companies have gone in putting their employees on public assistance. According to one study, American fast food workers receive more than $7 billion dollars in public assistance. As it turns out, McDonald's has a “McResource” line that helps employees and their families enroll in various state and local assistance programs. It exploded into the public when a recording of the McResource line advocated that full-time employees sign up for food stamps and welfare. <snip>

This is working well for McDonalds and Wal-Mart. It's giving their workers a raise in pay and it cost them nothing. But many of their employers are working here illegally and can't get "the raise" so in comes the Chamber of Commerce.

Great point. This is a taxpayer subsidy that enhances profitability.

S.744 is the Senate immigration bill that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce wants passed. In a nutshell, the list below is what it contains.


* Provides immediate legalization without securing the border
* Rewards criminal aliens, absconders, and deportees and undermines law enforcement
* Contains extremely dangerous national security loopholes
* Facilitates fraud in our immigration system
* Creates no real penalties for illegal immigrants and rewards them with entitlements
* Delays for years the implementation of E-Verify
* Does not fix our legal immigration system
* Advanced through a process predicated on a deal struck before markup
* Rewards those who have broken our laws by offering a special path to citizenship

Some Republican senators realize that: Americans expect their government to end the lawlessness, not surrender to it. They deserve immigration reform with actual border security, enforcement of the laws on the books, and a legal immigration system that works.
