Welcome to Chicago, Illinois – The Sanctuary City!
Well, maybe not so much anymore, at least according to this story:
As everyone knows, Chicago leads the Nation year over year in homicides – almost exclusively of the black on black variety. Tragic, terrible and senseless.
The ThoughtMarauder has made clear in past posts, Why Illegal Immigration Sucks for America – Part 1 and Why Illegal Immigration Sucks for America – Part 2 his feelings about illegal immigration. HE OPPOSES IT. COMPLETELY!
“Because he’s a racist, xenophobic neanderthal! That’s Why!”
Oh, not so fast my myopic, knee-jerky “friend.”
The ThoughtMarauder opposes Illegal immigration because he favors Americans – white ones, black ones, asian ones, straight ones, gay ones, tall ones, short ones, progressive ones and conservative ones. All of them! Our parents and their parents and their parents and their parents etc..etc..have bled for this country, paid its taxes, built its roads – we are literally the ones who’ve made it the place that other people want to come to.
We should be proud of what we built – and we are. But there is Zero reason to allow others who wish to come here to do so ILLEGALLY. There is a process for obtaining American citizenship. All of our relatives, at one time or another, had to fill out forms, stand in lines and wait until their names were called – why didn’t the illegals in this story do the same thing?
Anyway, this post reinforces what I’ve said before – when the illegals disappear – wages go up – ALOT.
When these 800 poorly paid illegal immigrants fled their bakery jobs because ICE
was coming, something I predicted would happen – happened.
Because of a sudden scarcity of labor, the employer was compelled by market forces to raise the previous wage of $10.00 per hour, to $14.00 per hour. Who benefited from the sudden appearance of 800 well-paying jobs? 800 predominantly black Americans in Chicago!
The ThoughtMarauder believes one of the primary reasons for the explosion of black on black violence is a lack of well-paying jobs – particularly for young men. Men need jobs to feel like men. Men need a sense of purpose. When men have good jobs it provides them a sense of self-worth like nothing else can.
Idle hands are the devils workshop. When a man is working 40 (or more) hours a week, he hardly has time for criminal foolishness.
As the economy continues to improve, I expect to see many, many more of these types of feel-good stories – along with the subsequent increase in wages that come from reductions in the illegal workforce.
America First – For Every American!
