Slavery Returns to America

“We fought a civil war to force Democrats to give up on slavery 150 years ago. They've become so desperate for servants that now they're importing an underclass to wash their clothes and pick their vegetables. This vast class of unskilled immigrants is the left's new form of slavery,” wrote Ann Coulter in her latest piece at Human Events Online . (Thanks to friend Barry C. for this lead.)

According to Alien Nation author Peter Brimelow, “There is recent evidence that, even after four generations, fewer than 10% of Mexicans have post-high school degrees, as opposed to nearly half of non-Mexican-Americans.” So you'll always have the maid. As New York mayor Michael Bloomberg said, our golf fairways would suffer without illegal immigrants.

Oops, Bloomberg is a Republican (sort of). Yes, Republican farmers in the Central Valley of California and in Senator Saxby Chambliss’ Georgia fields are all in favor of “importing a slave class.” If you want to know why President Bush’s approval numbers have plummeted into the low 30’s, it’s because mainstream Republicans (i.e. those who don’t work in Washington) are mightily pissed off about this illegal alien super-amnesty.

And they have the gall to deny that it is amnesty. If a burglar broke into your home and you captured him without blowing him away, then if you say “It’s OK, you can leave before I call the cops,” that’s amnesty. If, on the other hand, you say, “Hey, never mind the cops, what room would you like to sleep in, and please send for your wife and children, and I’ll build an extra bathroom for you guys, and you can go to my doctors, and when you get older you can have some of my Social Security, and you wont have to pay any taxes because your income will be below the federal minimum, but we’ll give you an earned income tax benefit of $3500, and… ,” well that’s something more than amnesty. That’s what my buddy Dave Young calls “super-amnesty.”

But I’ve strayed from the Democrats, those “great lovers of the downtrodden -- the downtrodden trimming their hedges – who pretend to believe that their gardeners' children will be graduating from Harvard and curing cancer someday.” The Democrat business leaders at Apple Computer and Microsoft (and throughout the high tech industry) have something in this bill for them too.

“America takes in roughly 1 million legal immigrants each year. Only about 30,000 of them have Ph.D.s. Why on earth would any rational immigration policy discriminate against immigrants with Ph.D.s in favor of unskilled, non-English-speaking immigrants?” Exactly, says Steve Jobs, send us your downtrodden computer engineers and mathematicians, because some of the work just can’t be outsourced to India, as much as we’d like to do just that.

Hysteria aside, it is sadly true that our colleges do not graduate enough highly qualified scientists, engineers and mathematicians to fill the jobs that need to remain here. When I was managing in industry, we were frustrated in our attempts to find qualified Americans and wound up going to China and India to bring in engineers, who we always described as “unique multi-facetted geniuses” in order to satisfy the immigration authorities.

Even the K-12 teachers have figured out that unbridled illegal immigration is destroying the public school system. On the website Teachers.Net, a public school teacher writes about the chaos at her school due to “cheap tomatoes.” Here are a few excerpts.

I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a largesouthern California high school which is designated a Title 1 schoolmeaning that its students are in the lower socioeconomic and income levels. Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When Isay free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and roll -- but afull breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make aMarriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays andtrays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones.

The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teacherswhose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in thecountry less then 3 months who raised so much hell with the femaleteachers, calling them putas (whores) and throwing things that theteachers were in tears. Free medical, free education, free food, daycare etc., etc., etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only bein this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses toassimilate, and an American culture that has become so weak and worriedabout politically correct that we don't have the will to do anythingabout it.

There’s more, but you get the idea.

Closing out with the Democrats, law abiding citizens and centrists are beginning to see Hillary for the giant two-faced albatross that she is. Even Hollywood is abandoning her. But for those who are still addicted to Hillary care - a.k.a. “The Hillary Ambivalence Syndrome” - The “Half Hour News Hour” offers this remedy:
OxyClinton. Enjoy!

I was literally stunned after I watched this. It will give you chills to see what the future holds for us unless limits are put on immigration.

It is NOT an anti immigration video. Roy Beck simply uses visual aids to show you what will happen in the next few years if something is not done.

Please watch this and then pass it on to those you care about. I did.

Everyone in this country should see this. Extremely eye-opening! I guarantee this will scare the daylights out of some of you. For others, it may change your view on illegal immigration.

Click on the link and see what the future holds for your children and your grandchildren. Please watch!

Go to and type in illegals and education. Look at the second listing - that should wake you up about "slave labor."

Hi Bill

I liked your blog, but I am abit confused as to your postion. Maybe I misinterpreted you statement during the last Moral Decisions group, in that you thought that the present bill approved by Kennedy, McCain, and Bush was a good one, and that you had read most of the main provisions.

Also I have not heard any other "solutions" other than total or indirect amnesty for the illegals. Of course the democrats wish to see them have amnesty for they would receive 90% of their votes. However, if amnesty was not given, then how would we be able to round up and deport the 12 million or more already in this country? To me, whatever decision is finally made, it is a "lose lose " problem and will effect our economy seriously in the future.
