Why Employers Will Fire Americans and Hire Illegals Under Obama’s Amnesty

There’s a double whammy here. The legalization of 11 million illegal aliens will give employers access to a “legal” pool of workers free of the taint of ObamaCare.
Considering the number of employers who hire illegal aliens even now, hiring legal illegal aliens will actually be incentivized by ObamaCare. So look for unemployment to shoot up if the Obama/Gang of 8 illegal alien amnesty goes through.
Companies with at least 50 workers will face a penalty of up to $3,000 for each worker who receives subsidies via ObamaCare. If current illegal immigrants given probationary status are excluded from ObamaCare — and the fines that go with it — an employer may see that as an extra incentive to hire them instead of American citizens.
As with most of the left’s gimmicks, this isn’t a bug, it’s a feature.
Suddenly the very American workers who are losing jobs to Obama’s illegal aliens will push forward for the end of the probationary period to come as soon as possible. And this will give the Democratic Party its new 11 million votes as soon as possible.
The entire process will whet the appetite of employers for a fresh supply of legal illegals, while the Amnesty will have created a powerful magnet drawing in more illegal aliens waiting for the next one to come along. And it will. Once the current crop of illegal aliens will be in ObamaCare, employers will look for the next batch. And this cycle will continue until there is no economy left, only serfs and social workers.
The lust for cheap labor has destroyed many countries. It has managed to bring the United States to the brink of destruction. The new selling point pushed by shills like Grover Norquist should be controlled by the “free market”. And what that means is that America will become a country with Third World labor and First World social welfare. The combination of those things cannot stand.
This is what immigration reform really looks like. The Center for Immigration Studies projects 40 million illegal aliens by 2038. But if 11 million illegal aliens are legalized, it is likely that the next amnesty will not have to wait that long.
