The Democrats want it both ways. They want to be seen as the champions of American workers. But they are also the advocates for illegal immigrants.
It just won’t work. Why?
These two causes work against each other. For one thing, the illegals are paid pitifully low wages. That in itself should upset liberals, but they look the other way. But illegals also take jobs away from American workers. It’s a conflict that cannot be resolved.
Under the leadership of President Trump, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is resolving that conflict for the Democrats in California. And it is being resolved in favor of American workers. Which means Jerry ‘Moonbeam’ Brown is regretting his decision to push his state as the first sanctuary state in the nation!
Breitbart details these actions by ICE in Northern California.
“77 Northern California businesses were required this week to comply with immigration audits of their workforces in what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has described as ‘protecting jobs for U.S. citizens’ and other lawfully employed individuals.
“Businesses received notices of inspection from ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents from Monday through Wednesday, ICE Spokesman James Schwab told Breitbart News. The notices gave each business three days from the date of being served to comply and produce I-9 documents.”
Could it be that Democrats are conspiring with big-business to help those firms hire illegals and thus lower their labor costs? That’s not supposed to happen, according to standard liberal dogma.
“‘HSI’s worksite enforcement strategy is focused on protecting jobs for U.S. citizens and others who are lawfully employed, eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that hire an illegal workforce and strengthening public safety and national security,’ Schwab said via e-mail.”
Look who is actually working to protect the jobs of U.S. citizens. And it is not California Governor Brown and his Democrats.
If the truth is spread out for all to see, denial is pointless. Turning California into a “Sanctuary State” is a project of the Democrats which has the effect of hurting “U.S. citizens and others who are lawfully employed.”
The Democrats want to support both illegal immigration and U.S. workers, but they cannot. Which one is it going to be for them? Or will Trump need to continue to make the decision for them and put American citizens first?
