The U.S. Department of Illegal Alien Labor

Pages: 1 2

President Obama’s Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is supposed to represent American workers. What you need to know is that this longtime open-borders sympathizer has always had a rather radical definition of “American.” At a Latino voter registration project conference in Los Angeles many years ago, Solis asserted to thunderous applause, “We are all Americans, whether you are legalized or not.”

That’s right. The woman in charge of enforcing our employment laws doesn’t give a hoot about our immigration laws — or about the fundamental distinction between those who followed the rules in pursuit of the American dream and those who didn’t.

While in Congress, she opposed strengthening the border fence, supported expansion of illegal alien benefits (including driver’s licenses and in-state tuition discounts), embraced sanctuary cities that refused to cooperate with federal homeland security officials to enforce immigration laws, and aggressively championed a mass amnesty. Solis was steeped in the pro-illegal alien worker organizing movement in Southern California and was buoyed by amnesty-supporting Big Labor groups led by the Service Employees International Union. She has now caused a Capitol Hill firestorm over her new taxpayer-funded advertising and outreach campaign to illegal aliens regarding fair wages:

“I’m here to tell you that your president, your secretary of labor and this department will not allow anyone to be denied his or her rightful pay — especially when so many in our nation are working long, hard and often dangerous hours,” Solis says in the video pitch. “We can help, and we will help. If you work in this country, you are protected by our laws. And you can count on the U.S. Department of Labor to see to it that those protections work for you.”

To be sure, no one should be scammed out of “fair wages.” Employers that hire and exploit illegal immigrant workers deserve full sanctions and punishment.

    If all the illegals go home then high school students will have summer jobs again. Real taxes will be paid. Hospitals wont be overwhelmed by non paying customers. Schools can teach the three Rs, rather than spending all their time speaking to illegals in spanish and teaching them god knows what.

    I don't understand why we are in Iraq when we have an unsecure border. We have spent hundreds of billions of dollars trying to give the average Iraqi a better life when we ourselves are having our own people thrown out of their homes while illegals take construciton jobs away from them. I know plenty of out of work loan officers that will do a janitor job or landscaping or just about anything to feed themselves and their families. You see public works jobs taken over by Mexicans and you know where that money is going. Stop funding foreign wars and start defending our own border.

      We–liberals and conservatives alike–need to realize something. Liberals partially get it, the TEA partiers partially get it, conservatives partially get it–but each defends a somewhat indefensible constituency.

      Our country–that is to say, our government–has become a corporate oligarchy. It has been sold out from underneath us. Because most of us are invested, when the times were good, we looked the other way. ALL of us. Now that the proverbial chickens are coming home–we're looking around and blaming each other.

      We have got to remove "corporate personhood." It is an abomination based on legal misinterpretation. It's why we are involved in foreign wars that have NOTHING to do with "protecting our freedom." It's why we have averitable nation of illegal immigrants doing our work for us, and why other nations own huge parcels of our cities.

        Jim,

        You could not have explained the situation any better. There is a hierarchy and the american people come in a distant 3rd next to Global business and our corrupt politicians regardless of the R or D next to their name. I hope and pray that the partisan bickering stops and we take the county back.

        It will change as soon as Mexican attorneys start coming up to represent me for $10.00 and hour.
        I love you

      I can understand, we can walk and chew gum at the same time. The reason we’re still in Iraq is to deny that country to al quada and the mad mullahs, and develop it enough so we might not have to go back. Besides, waiting for people who declare themselves our mortal enemies to hit at times and places of their choosing is stupid, especially in the WMD age.

      We had unsecured borders long before we were in Iraq, and hussein says he won’t secure the border until he has amnesty for the illegals already here. Maybe he and the dp are the one’s you should be asking for enlightenment on US policy, they’ve been in control of congress for the last four years, and the White House for the last two.

        If you are looking for dragons to slay , we could have several fronts, troops in Iraq, troops in Iran, troops in North Korea, troops in Pakistan, for harboring Alqada, we could ally with Israel and fight Palestine. Syria comes to mind. All this could be accomplished with the help of our good friends, trading partner and financiers Communist China. It's only a matter of sending Hillary back over to borrow the profits that used to be made in the US.
        No Declaration of War needed by Congress, as Preemptive strikes are now a legitimate call by the President.
        Iraq's borders are secured. US borders remain open, "To defend and protect against enemies foreign" is a mute point. Homeland Security now refuses to publish OTM crossing the border. "A Republic, if you can keep it." B. Franklin

      An estimated 12 Million illegals in the U.S. Undocumented, no history, no background checks, reproducing and swelling the Hispanic population of the U.S. This is plainly insane. I know of no nation on earth that encourages such suicide. What is it with Washington that plays on this underlying GUILT that if you are for legal proceedings leading to immigration…..you must be a RACIST?!! When Arizona came out with its Immigration Law (which is essentially a rework of the Federal but with one exception–it actually empowers and promotes law officials to ENFORCE the existing Federal law rather than IGNORE it), Obama immediately attacked it. He said, "Now we're gonna have some grandma harassed when she goes down the street for an ice cream." THIS is who YOU PUT IN THE WHITE HOUSE, America. This was a vicious statement. First, because is slanders Arizona, which included a very succinct prohibition of UNWARRANTED profiling. And SECONDLY, it DENIGRATED the Law Enforcement officials and departments of Arizona, portraying them as Constitution breakers. Obama just got no luv of dem cops. Until he needs one…….

  • Tom

    Solis is just another far-left wing member of the Osama regime. Instead of doing her job, she is doing all she can to destroy this country just like all the other lefist zealots in the regime are. These people won't stop until the country is on its knees, gasping its last breath.

    The average American, who might still be living in a sleepy stupor of hope and change, is slowly beginning to see the mask come off the Community-Organizer-in-Chief.. With his appointment of Hilda Solis, his radical ideology soulmate, as well as the rest of the vermin with which he filled his cabinet, his unconstitutionally placed "czars," and his Bizarro World interpretation of the law, he has opened eyes that were shut with Crazy Glue. As the surge of illegals, criminals, and terrorists comes over our borders like a tsunami, we have a communist Labor Secretary whose arms are open in a gesture of welcome. The Emperor has no clothes — as he fulfills his pre-election promise to "fundamentally transform America," the breathtaking damage that is being inflicted daily on our country by him and his gang of criminals has me requesting, "Please pass me that bottle of Crazy Glue for my eyelids, and wake me when the nightmare is over …"

  • richard

    we need a movement at least 1/4 as serious as the left.
    the nearest we have is the tea party, and that is not enough.
    we have to get organized, motivated. only with unity, protest do we have any hope. look at the illegals protesting. we cannot sit back any longer.

    My son has a masonary business in New Hampshire. He is out of work because of competition from illegal Mexican labor. His wife had a job as a chambermaid in a local motel. You guessed it. She has been replaced this season by a J-1 visa holder from Eastern Europe. Only doing the jobs Americans don't want to do.

  • janek

    I am an immigrant myself (know well about communism), and I am very upset about what is happening in the USA, but often I think that american people got what they wanted, they overhemingly voted leftist to the government and Obama. I am certain that most of these workers that are out of jobs voted for Obama, and noe they are unhappy. If they spent 30 years under a comminist regim they would never done it. Some people need to learn with their "own skin". Maybe after few years of Obama, environmentalists, climate warming idiots they will open their minds????

  • Max daddy

    I find it impossible to compete with illegals in the floor care business.
    I have a liscense, bond and insurance to maintain on everything not to mention taxes. So sure they can do the job for half the price.
    The "jobs Americans don't want" keep creeping up the labor ladder and now include agricultural, service, construction, and …well….President of the United States it appears.

    It will change as soon as Mexican attorneys start coming up to represent me for $10.00 and hour.

    Perspective from your neighbor and ally to the north:__ Whereas I agree with my American friends' perception that immigration into the US has gotten totally out of control (as it has here in Canada), I must disagree with the manner in which our side is addressing the problem.__ The entire focus of the illegal alien problem has been directed toward Latinos, while America's real enemies, the moslems, are being encouraged, welcomed, and deferred to. The Latino situation is persistent, low-grade and chronic, while that of our sworn enemies of the religion of peace is immediate and acute. At our peril we fail to understand that every moslem who arrives on our shores is dedicated to crushing our free, egalitarian and tolerant societies under the iron heel of islam, while Latinos sneak in illegally because they like what they see and desperately wish to become a part of it. At the end of the day, Latinos are just like us – conservative, hard-working and family-oriented. 99% are devout Catholics, being thereby a vibrant constituent of our Judeo-Christian – Humanist belief system.

    …continued…
    If it is, in fact, desirable that the influx of Latinos be curtailed, there is a very simple, albeit conservatively incorrect way in which to bring about such an outcome; were transnationals like Cargill, Wal-Mart and their ilk to forego their practice of hiring undocumented aliens because of their willingness to work for coolie wages, 90% of the problem would disappear overnight.
    I'm a right-winger, but I refuse to countenance hypocrisy; come on corporations – shit or get off the pot!

    I've been wondering for some time; if there are people in our country who would rather live in a nation of communism, why don't they just pack their bags and go to one of those countries? I would be glad to pay a one-way ticket for one of them and I'm sure we could get them all out of our country. After all, wouldn't we want them to be so satisfied?

    In other words, get the h— out of the USA!

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/suprkufrB suprkufrB

      AMEN!

  • USMCSniper

    I guess Obama's Department of Labor agrees with "We don't need no steeenking green cards."

  • viper

    I don't understand why every one is so upset. The primary reason that Obama has appointed so many minorities is to assist in destroying this country as we know it.

    If a minority has no intelligence, screech's to high heaven about the "rights" that any illegal DOES NOT have, then that is Obama's "boy or girl". Can't think for themselves.

    It is so hard to understand why these "illegals" will not take the responsibility of building their own country up, instead of coming here and attempting to tear this one down!

  • kel

    People of this country need to rally together and fight this corrupt government. Illegal aliens should only have the benefit of a one-way ticket to their homeland. If they are here illegal why should they be treated any different then a criminal. After all that is what they are!! What I see is if enough people cry in your favor you will get away with anything. So if I murder a man and enough people cry for me I should be able to get away with it right? Semms like the same concept to me.

  • Andrews

    MBA NJ…You have it exactly RIGHT. VICHY Governments ARE in control of ALL Outlaw Sanctuary Cities! And the current "Manchurian President" White House is occupied by one as well,apologizing for America. These "Quislings" represent illegal aliens and Mexico's Agenda of illegal outpopulation ahead of legal citizens and are driving the USA through immigration anarchy into decline and dystopia!
