From logic to insanity - Watch these videos


© 2018 Jim Spence - For many decades Democrats understood that a flood of illegal immigrants would severely damage the wage structures that pro-union Democrats had fought so hard to build. Presidents Obama and Clinton have both been filmed repeatedly railing against lax border enforcement at Democrat rallies and during State of the Union addresses. You can see the videos here and here
Obama and Clinton are not ancient ex-presidents from a different era. They are the last two Democrat presidents we have had, and they are the only two presidents popular enough to be elected to two terms since FDR. As part of their alleged tough border enforcement policies, Democrats routinely accused Republicans of being in favor of the illegal flood to keep wages low. Like so many other things Democrats said about the GOP, it was a false charge. All one has to do is look at the laws of the land that were passed and enforced with broad GOP support.
Under federal law, it is illegal for any employer to engage with illegal immigrants in the following manner: 1) Hiring illegal immigrants, 2) Recruiting illegal immigrants 3) Referring illegal immigrants for work and receiving a fee. Federal law stretches so far it includes hiring contractors who use illegal immigrants. The consequences are severe. There are both criminal and civil penalties associated with this conduct.
There is so much more. It is also illegal for employers to not verify work authorization. Three days after an employee is hired, employers must correctly complete an I-9 form. Failing to do so will subject employers to criminal and civil punishment.
In addition to criminal and civil fines, hiring illegal immigrants can lead to the loss of business licenses.
First offenders can be fined $250-$2,000 per illegal employee. For a second offense, the fine is $2,000-$5,000 per illegal employee. After three or more offenses an employer can be fined $3000-$10,000 per illegal employee. Engaging in “patterns” of knowingly employing illegal immigrants can trigger extra fines and up to six months in jail for an employer. “Harboring” illegal immigrants or employing ten or more illegal immigrants in one year can lead to ten years of prison time.
The Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act can also come into play. Employers can be sued under the act for hiring illegal immigrants, and can face large civil settlements.
Employers are required to make a good faith effort to make sure that their employees are legally permitted to work in the country. Good faith efforts include checking social security numbers and making sure the numbers are valid.
In short, businesses are required to go through costly processes to make sure they do not hire people who have crossed the border illegally. If they fail to do so, they pay big time.
So, here we are, eighteen months into Donald Trump's first term. Democrats are losing all sense of coherence. Three sitting Democrat senators, one from California (Harris), one from New York (Gillibrand), and one from Massachusetts (Warren) have all called for get his......the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. This is also the battle cry of soon to be a U.S. House of Representatives member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who hails from a Democrat stronghold in New York.
Let’s think about these Democrat policy proposals. Prompted by millions of Democrats these Senators want to abolish immigration and customs enforcement. None of these Democrats called for the repeal of the actual laws the ICE agency enforces. They just called for the abolition of the agency itself This means they want people to be allowed to cross our borders illegally, but still not be able to work, since any employer who hires them faces very severe penalties.
The next question seems obvious to anyone except most Democrats. How will these people who enter illegally support themselves, if they are not permitted by law, to work?
Those of us who pay federal income taxes already know the answer to this question. It will be those of us who do work and pay taxes (that is only half of all adults in the U.S.) who will pick up the tab.
Still, the propaganda ministries in America (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NPR, MSNBC, and most newspapers) never ask this basic common sense question. The reason why the question is never asked is because the propaganda ministry doesn't want Americans to hear the Democrats's insane answers. Instead, and incredibly, 90 percent of those working in our media continue to be dumbfounded that Trump has not only snared the lion's share of the union vote, he has captured the votes of most working taxpayers and most employers who are forced to comply with laws listed above.
In the meantime, those speeches made by Obama and Clinton sound exactly like those made by Trump. These days Democrats are promoting lawlessness, while continuing to insist that taxpayers pay for the care and upkeep for those who come here illegally and are still prohibited from working. It is insane.
