We are back to mixing legal and illegal? You can't call people migrants, when
they don't migrate from place to place following work. The article references
people who came here legally and and stayed-immigrants. And those who came here
illegally and stayed,--illegal aliens (legal term). One group has
every right to be here and send their money to family, the other has no right to
be here and work. No matter how you dance around the issue, they are two
different groups, and one needs to be dealt with according to the laws of the
land. Let's see an equal amount of articles telling the stories of
America's poor that have lost jobs, families and homes because cheap illegal
labor took their work. The sob stories about those here illegally in
our country aren't making a difference, so now we are going to get articles on
their relatives in foreign countries? How about intellectual honesty. I have
given up looking to the local media on immigration reporting.
Exports bring money to the exporting country. Mexico exports labor to the US.
What is strange about that?
"The Pew Hispanic Center reported 300,000 annually came to the U.S.
illegally from 2007 to 2009, compared to 850,000 between 2000 and 2005."Of course a two-year figure is not going to be nearly as impressive as a
five-year figure. Kind of a curious comparison, don't you think? "Alex Nowrasteh, at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, says things
like ID requirements and background checks can be quite burdensome for
migrants."If they're here illegaly, then I imagine they would
be "burdensome." "Lowering costs for sending
remittances encourages a very efficient and voluntary form of foreign aid,
experts said."But if they are illegal, they have NO right to
engage in such "foreign aid," nor any right right to earn the money in
the United States in the first place, while Americans remain almost 10%
unemployed and lose their homes to foreclosure. And of course it
stands to reason that the departure of this 52 BILLION dollars from the U.S.
economy each year is NOT helping matters. Illegal immigration is a
huge benefit only for the greedy employers who employ them. It results in a
huge loss to the rest of the country.
As long as its 'after tax' income who cares? We all give our incomes to our
families, not hide it from government. What are the writers trying to say?
Should we send tax payers money to the families of these legal and illegal
immigrants in other countries as they strip and undermine our generosity? We are
all in the same boat of poverty and we all want sympathy but an
"American" doesn't expect it. That's the difference in a diversified
and divided nation, the American culture of independence.For
"citizens" its even harder as foreign workers and employers get
welfare because they lie about having income. Citizens are forced out of homes,
jobs, and even poverty to a state of homeless so foreign criminals can have a
better life.US citizenship is the 1st law of entitlement for
welfare, education, and civil services, Utah lawmakers and its news media want
to deny. They claim citizenship entitlement meant to preserve our rights and
laws is too oppressive to foreign nationals and they want it repealed. This same
group of illegal activism also thinks assimilation and learning our language as
Do a little math to see how this impacts Mexico. Since January,
remisas...er...remittances to Mexico have averaged $1.919 BILLION per month.That's enough money to supply the median income to 320,000 Mexican
families.And it is going to states like Zacatecas and Michoacan. There is
little industry in those states. People are simply waiting around waiting for
their money from their relatives in the United States.That's not good for
them and it's not good for us.
Finally a news report that acknowledges the difference between legal and illegal
immigration. Congrats DMN. And to Say No to BO, you are correct. I know of
one situation personally where the sibling does nothing but sit and wait for the
remittance and in his spare time has produced 13 children, all of them in
training to be just like their father. When are the politicians going to seize
a good opportunity to tax these remittances and spread the money throughout the
world so that everyone can receive an equal share (are you listening BO)?
As the State Legislative Session draws near. The "immigrant" stories
will get more prevalent. DN has an agenda.
What a bunch on nonsense. This "story" is just another propaganda
piece designed to confuse people and blur the line between legal immigrants and
foreign criminals living in this country illegally and bleeding us dry. Here is
a fun little stat to ponder: Remittances from their citizens living in the
United States illegaly is Mexico's third largest source of foreign income,
trailing only tourism and oil exports.
To FDRAliens breaking the law by sneaking into the United States is an
"export" of Mexico now? That boggles the mind that this illegal
activity by any country with ours could be considered a legitimate export.
It benefits our country every time foreigners hold dollars. This allows our
country to print money (increase the supply) and not necessarily cause
inflation. Otherwise inflation would be much greater than it already is.
dogchow1 | 10:10 a.m. Jan. 1, 2012Salt Lake City, UT I did not
say it was a legitimate import/export but why it is being done. We need to
change things in Mexico so people can make a living there. If we are going to
make regime changes maybe we should start there.
Mexico has the 12th best economy in the world, people can make a living there.
Their economy is not our responsibility. And as long as we throw
money at their problem, they will never change and take care of their own. They
have health care, they have welfare and food stamp programs. People come here
for a higher wage, not to survive. It's all about cheap labor for
business. Americans need to take back our country and our jobs from the
artificial surplus of labor. American business has become lazy, and dependent on
artificial stimulation to get boom periods.
Another guilt trip on your fellow countrymen, who want our immigration laws
...This looks like the best of both worlds for Rena.
