Trump's immigration policy means more jobs for Americans

A report in Politico shows President Trump's crackdown on illegal aliens has led to more jobs and better wages.

And liberals are crying.

Boo hoo hoo.



From Politico:
President Donald Trump’s harsh criticism of immigration programs and Congress’ refusal to lift a cap on work visas meant many seasonal businesses had to hire American this summer — and pay their workers more.
That's good news for Trump, for U.S. workers, and for supporters of Trump's “American First” agenda, but business groups complain that increased spending on wages will ultimately cost jobs and sap company profits. Across the country, enterprises ranging from oyster shuckers to landscapers say they were forced to give up contracts and forgo revenue because they just couldn’t find enough workers to do the jobs this summer.
"There were a lot of businesses that lost a lot of revenue,” said Laurie Flanagan, co-chair of the H-2B Workforce Coalition, a lobbying group with a membership that includes the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
You know what else boosted wages?

Ending slavery.

Funny, last September, liberals -- and their faux conservative lackeys -- sang a different tune. Max Ehrenfreund of the Washington Post wrote, "How Trump’s immigration policies could put Americans out of work," which warned that higher wages would trigger higher prices.

He cited Mark Zandi, the chief economist at Moody's Analytics, a consultant for John McCain.

"Asking these folks to leave is going to put a hole in the economy that’s going to cost jobs. It’s going to cost the jobs of American citizens," Zandi said.

Really?

So illegal aliens created jobs?

Just like they told us NAFTA would.

And they also said NAFTA would decrease the number of illegal aliens.

I get tired of the lies.

  1. It make absolutely no sense to be importing workers from other countries while there are able-bodied Americans sitting idle.

  2. I believe little that politicians say now. Term limits are necessary if just to drain the swamp; make it so those elected don't become creatures of the swamp forgetting why they went to DC.

  4. Sounds like these economists have been reading too much by Paullie "The Beard" Krugman.

  5. Their slavery scheme was "improved". Slave owners were responsible for feeding, housing, medical care, and retirement of slaves. Modern open border slavers managed to pass off the costs to the public whose livelihoods the new low wage slave illegal aliens have decimated in standard of living and labor compensation. In order to rationalize this scheme dehumanizing, threats, and the end of liberty will be pursued.

  7. So, these esteemed "economists" don't think the laws of supply and demand also relate to labor.
