How The GOP Can Oppose Amnesty And Win Votes....Economic Populism

While some alleged conservatives think amnesty solves the "problem" of "artificially high wages" back here on planet Earth an actual conservative has a different take.

Behold Senator Jeff Sessions.

After over four years of the Obama presidency, wages have continued their painful decline. But the same Democrat senators who attacked President Bush for declining wages have suddenly fallen silent.

And so, with unanimous Democrat support, the Senate adopted a bill that adds four times more guest workers than the rejected 2007 plan at a time when 4.3 million more Americans are out of work and 20 million more Americans are on food stamps. The proposal also grants immediate work authorization to those here illegally while dramatically boosting permanent levels of annual legal immigration in the future. Based on Congressional Budget Office data, the bill would grant permanent residency to 46 million mostly lower-skill immigrants by 2033.

The result? CBO says wages would fall for the next dozen years, unemployment would rise, and per-capita GNP would be lower for the next quarter century.

Strikingly, wages are lower today than in 1999. Median household income has declined 8 percent. One in seven recent college graduates is unemployed. One in three Americans without a high-school diploma cant find work. The Senate immigration bill written by the White House, Democrat leadership and supported by the entire Democrat conference sacrifices the economic interests of these Americans in deference to the politicians and business interest who want lower-cost labor.

Read the whole thing and remember that Sessions is a long time fighter for the rule of law.

Standing up for Americans (including Hispanics) is so crazy it just might work!

Oh, the House GOP held their caucus on immigration yesterday and it seems everyone heard what they wanted to hear.
