Throw whites in America under the bus to prove you’re not a racist. AS LONG AS IT’S NOT YOU THOUGH. THEN IT’S OKAY. Sacrifice the lives and well being of others. Hmmm. Just like conservative war hawks who send other people’s kids to die in wars that only enrich the rich. Liberals should take a look in the mirror and ask themselves why, in so many instances of their belief system, they end up mirroring what they claim to hate. And what about jobless blacks who are just as American and as much human beings as white Americans? Well serves them right for having conservative views about borders and protecting American jobs. They’re just puppets for the KKK and white supremacy so they’re also a proper target!

So sayeth lib-tard logic.

Biden Administration Suggests Foreign Workers Have a Right to Take U.S. Jobs

 

President Joe Biden’s administration is suggesting that foreign workers have a right to compete for jobs in the United States labor market against jobless Americans.

Last year, in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis, former President Trump signed an executive order halting the admission of H-1B, H-4, H-2B, L, and J-1 foreign visa workers to protect the U.S. labor market. The order sought to free up at least 600,000 jobs for millions of Americans facing joblessness and underemployment.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked if the Biden administration would renew the order, as it is set to expire next month, but she dodged the question and suggested that protecting the U.S. labor market from foreign competition was “immoral.”

“Let me talk to our Department of Homeland Security. It’s likely a conversation that would happen in coordination with them,” Psaki said of discussions about whether Biden would let the order expire.

“Obviously, the president’s view is that the approach of the prior administration was immoral but also ineffective in terms of addressing the many challenges of an outdated immigration system,” Psaki continued. “But I don’t have an update on those particular requirements.”

Should Biden allow the order to expire, companies would be permitted to import hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals to take U.S. jobs, even as more than 17 million Americans remain unemployed — including 1.5 million teenagers, 930,00 black Americans, and 870,000 Hispanics.

Protections for the U.S. labor market are some of the most popular policies among likely voters despite their overwhelming opposition by the big business lobby and corporate interests who are invested in spiking their profit margins by cutting the cost of labor.

The latest Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,250 likely voters reveals that 74 percent want a reduction to legal immigration levels which are currently set at about 1.2 million green card admissions a year. Similarly, 65 percent say it is better for businesses to raise U.S. wages and try harder to recruit jobless Americans instead of importing foreign workers. Another 61 percent say the U.S. labor market has enough so-called “high-skilled” workers and does not need more.

Remember, if you want to close the borders to protect African American jobs, but also protect African American lives from racist MS-13 gangsters, you’re literally Hitler! LOL.

I’m sure you’re deeply concerned about the African-Americans lol

But um…close the borders? You just flat out don’t want even legal immigrants?

Do you want a growing economy?

If the answer is yes (and I’m assuming it is) then my next question is do you understand shrinking birth rates in America?

And if so, do you understand the concept of Economics 101 – in a growing economy you need a growing population to fill the growing job market…

I’ll let you do the math and put that together. I’m assuming that’s not too hard for your pea-brain (but I’m probably mistaken…)

And also, why are you fixated on MS-13? There’s plenty of murderous gangs right here in America, composed of legal citizens. Why didn’t you mention them? 🤔

one of my best friends and has been for close to 30 years will kick the shit out of you if you call him African american the man get’s heated about it same shit if you call him African Canadian he will get real pissed in his words he would rather be called the n-word than African

because just because you are black does not mean you are from Africa and that offends the fuck out of some black folks.

Kamala Harris is not from Africa 

as for the borders keep them closed only allow in people who are willing to work but what Biden is doing is the same Trudeau did is handing out welfare checks and that only creates more democrat/liberal votes and fixes fuck all ..

Like I said, folks. LOL. I’m a racist who doesn’t really care. It’s like I predicted this would happen. It’s almost like I knew because it has happened before and regressive liberals are so predictable.

But um…close the borders? You just flat out don’t want even legal immigrants?

Americans first. Including the blacks, asians and latinos that are already legally here.

Do you want a growing economy?

Do you want American whites and blacks to be unemployed because they can’t work due to bullshit lockdowns for a non-deadly virus, only to have the restrictions lifted at a convenient time when undocumented foreign workers will be allowed to budge to the front of the line?

do you understand shrinking birth rates in America?

You’re talking about WHITE birth rates declining in America. Black birth rates aren’t declining. WHAT ABOUT THEM? Second, America has HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, SOME OF WHICH ARE UNEMPLOYED! Why should foreigners and some undocumented citizens with LESS MELANIN be allowed to budge the line for available jobs? Why do you always ignore the people RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU that are in need of work? Why do you act like they don’t matter? Declining birth rates in a country DOESN’T REFUTE the fact that many are still jobless and need work. Please understand this simple concept.

And if so, do you understand the concept of Economics 101 – in a growing economy you need a growing population to fill the growing job market…

Don’t talk to me about economics. I’ve studied international banking, central bank conspiracies, etc for years. You will lose. Pigg already lost here.
https://faygoluvers.net/v5/forum/politics/the-alt-right-playbook/page-3/
And also, don’t ignore what’s in front of you in the main article:

Protections for the U.S. labor market are some of the most popular policies among likely voters despite their overwhelming opposition by the big business lobby and corporate interests who are invested in spiking their profit margins by cutting the cost of labor.

Liberals, who are obsessed with race, panic when they see this. So they have to lie and they admit, “yes cheap labour drives wages down. But then the wages slowly climb back up.” There’s no basis for that. Second, even if it was true, that’s still admitting the overall point. Wages go down. And it hurts lower class Americans white AND BLACK. How much do you care about those black lives now?

I just love how the liberals and marxists I read in the 90’s like Jello Biafra, Noam Chomsky, etc, were always attacking corporations for going overseas to exploit cheap labour. Okay, SO WHY IS IT NOW OKAY TO DO THAT IN AMERICA? One of the many contradictions lefties will permit all in the name of avoiding being racist, or something idiotic like that. But I guess, if you virtue signal hard enough on the internet for foreigners, then it’s okay if certain policies fuck over American blacks. Apparently, enough blacks didn’t heed the warning of Malcolm X to beware of white liberals who have their OWN AGENDAS IN MIND and not actually the overall goal of the well being of the black family and the black middle class. If more blacks were like Officer Tatum, Candace Owens, Thomas Sowell, and Larry Elder, they’d be in a better position than they are now. FACT!

And also, why are you fixated on MS-13?

Yeah, damn me for caring about blacks in America. lol.

There’s plenty of murderous gangs right here in America, composed of legal citizens. Why didn’t you mention them? 🤔

They’re not the topic of discussion right now. Stay on target. Avoid the red herring fallacies, please.

Here we see the typical liberal fallacy of “two wrongs make a who cares.” There’s already crime in America and since a lot of crime is in fact connected to illegals, MUCH OF WHICH TARGETS BLACKS, we shouldn’t close the borders to protect our citizens because crime is already being committed by actual citizens. lol.

If liberals want to be taken seriously, they need to drop the non sequitors and other fallacies. They need to stop throwing Americans – black and white – under the bus just to stroke their own ego to convince themselves they’re not racist or not Hitler. It’s even starting to annoy a lot of blacks who are jumping over to the conservative/Republican side because they realize that the Dems are selling THEM OUT because they’re selling AMERICAN JOBS out!

 Nice to see a glimmer of hope that maybe you do care about black lives. Maybe you do care about black on black crime and blacks in America losing jobs to others in America. Maybe you do care for example about racial hiring and the harm it causes to black people who are trying to find work to support themselves and their family. Maybe you do want black to be able to work after all.

Now how about you be logically consistent and apply that to foreigners, mostly the undocumented citizens, who aren’t white, but still often lack the melanin that African Americans do that end up taking jobs away from African Americans? Or are African Americans puppets for white supremacy if they want border and job protection? 🤔

This is 3 minutes well spent. It explains how all immigrants are not the same, & how the economy can’t grow if a large chunk of immigrants goes on welfare:

Here’s an article from the Cato institute, a libertarian think-tank, that proves this is bullshit.

I don’t agree with their proposed solution, but I am using them specifically because they’re a source I don’t fully agree with.

 

https://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/dont-blame-immigrants-bloated-welfare-state

 

“We found that immigrants use 39 percent fewer welfare and entitlements benefits per person than native‐​born Americans. Immigrants are less likely to use the individual programs in most cases and, when they do, the benefits they receive tend to be smaller.”

 

“Based on the data, adult immigrants are 47 percent less likely to receive Social Security benefits than native‐​born American adults. Furthermore, the average amount they receive in benefits is about $1,427 below that of natives in 2016. The net effect is that immigrants individually consumed 48 percent fewer Social Security retirement benefits than natives.”

 

“Supplemental Security Income provides another example. Lower immigrant use rates and benefits mean that the average adult immigrant consumes about 22 percent less in SSI benefits than the average native‐​born American adult.”

 

“Immigrants are drawn to America’s labor markets, not to welfare benefits. The number of illegal immigrants apprehended on the Southwest border, a good proxy measurement for the number who want to come here, is down by 82 percent in 2017 compared to 2000. During that time, Congress has increased the number of welfare programs available for new immigrants.

 

  • If they were coming for welfare, there would be more illegal immigrants entering the country than ever. But there aren’t. Murder, the chaotic drug war in Central America, and a recovering economy here, combined with a faltering one there, is the main driver of asylum seekers and some illegal immigrants coming from that part of the world.”

back in 2016 when Trump was first elected all kinds of Haitians that Obama brought to america were jumping the border into Quebec.

they filled the fucking Olympic Stadium there was so many of them each and every one got a welfare check and were put to the top of the list for government housing and not a single one of them ever got a real taxpaying job.

they all get free rent $700 per adult and $500 per child in welfare money 

but the good news is Biden in your president now and they are all going back to america where you will have to pay for them to freeload and take shit’s on the streets.

Regressive liberals and libertarians are often two peas in the same pod.

Liberals hate borders because “racism.”
Libertarians hate borders because “government” and “free market.”

It’s just too bad that when you push open borders to their logical conclusion, you end up empowering the corporations and they buy off the politicians to help keep labour wages down and destroy the middle class, Then the market becomes NOT free.

Liberals and libertarians refuse to accept the consequences of their ideas. Hence, they have different reasons for lying about the supposed benefits illegal immigrants bring.

I love how Pigg acts like he wants to debate borders and immigration NOW, but he chickened out months ago on page 3 here.
https://faygoluvers.net/v5/forum/politics/the-alt-right-playbook/page-3/
Don’t worry, though. Much like I did in this old debate, I’ll actually take the time to go through his links and destroy them one at a time like I did in that old topic.

I can sense Pigg quaking in his boots now. Get ready everybody for a TOO LONG DIDN’T READ gif coming up from him…lol

https://www.cato.org/blog/three-reasons-why-immigrants-arent-going-take-job

Clips:

Unemployment is spiking during the COVID-19 crisis. Americans are reacting to the virus by changing their economic behavior by working at home where possible, spending less time in dense public places, and in numerous other ways that result in less economic activity – sometimes voluntarily and sometimes in response to government shelter in place orders. As a result, employment is falling. In this situation, many pundits are arguing that further restricting immigration will preserve jobs for American citizens. Further restrictions will have no such impact.

Oh and he just knows this how?

I’ve written much about the economic effects of immigration before, but here are some big takeaway points related to the recent immigration ban:

Wow. Ten different articles I’m sure Pigg himself has never read. That’s amazing. Pigg just throws up links, declares victory and walks away. I’m wondering if I should waste my time with this. Tell ya what, I’ll come back to it.

The biggest benefit of coming to the United States is higher wages, which are higher here because immigrant workers have a greater marginal value product (MVP=the number of goods produced by a worker multiplied by the market price for those goods).

This is a benefit to THEM that NOBODY DENIES, but it has NOTHING TO DO WITH AMERICAN WORKERS.

Immigration slows during a recession because the number of jobs decreases and, oftentimes, wages also adjust or their growth slows. Thus, the big benefit of immigrating to the United States evaporates for many immigrants during a recession. Immigration falls during recessions because immigrants benefit less from coming here, but natives benefit less too so the government also typically responds by increasing immigration enforcement.

[…]

In response to COVID-19, the U.S. economy is in recession and unemployment is skyrocketing so the benefits of immigrating here are falling.

BOOM! YOU JUST LOST THE ARGUMENT. You also lose the argument because THANKS TO THINGS THAT LEFTIES ADMIT EXIST like red-lining that kept minorities in poor neighbourhoods with lower property value, THEY CAN AFFORD TO COME OVER THE BORDER TO GET A HIGHER AMERICAN WAGE THAN THEIR OLD MEXICAN WAGE, AND THEY WILL TAKE LESS THAN A NATURAL AMERICAN WHO LIVES IN A NEIGHBOURHOOD THAT HAS A HIGHER COST OF LIVING. And since the Mexican really wants that job and needs a lower cost of living, he will take a wage reduction to undercut the natural born American. 

To act like immigrants ONLY TAKE JOBS that not a single white person could have used or would have wanted and probably would have gotten at a higher wage, is just a lie and it rests on an omniscience that only God has, but God doesn’t exist.

Second, the impulse to close immigration to protect jobs for American citizens is known as the lump of labor fallacy, which is a fundamental misconception that there is a fixed amount of work in a society. Believers in this fallacy apply it to immigration by arguing that any job held by an immigrant could be held by an American citizen, but this just simply isn’t true. The number of jobs available depend on myriad economic factors and is never stable.

Let’s quickly check this fallacy by clicking the hyperlink to wikipedia before we come back to the main article.

It was considered a fallacy in 1891 by economist David Frederick Schloss, who held that the amount of work is not fixed.[1]

The term originated to rebut the idea that reducing the number of hours employees are allowed to labour during the working day would lead to a reduction in unemployment. The term is also commonly used to describe the belief that increasing labour productivity, immigration, or automation causes an increase in unemployment. Whereas opponents of immigration argue that immigrants displace a country’s workers, this is a fallacy, as the number of jobs in the economy is not fixed and immigration increases the size of the economy and may increase productivity, innovation, and overall economic activity, as well as reduce incentives for off-shoring and business closures, thus creating more jobs.

Non sequitor fallacy. At ANY given point in time, there is a FINITE amount of jobs. Now whether say a restaurant can afford to hire another cook or another server and increase their staff count, and thus the amount of people they have to pay is IRRELEVANT to the MAIN ISSUE. If at ANY TIME, there exists an opportunity for a job, and they can either pay a white American who has a certain cost of living, and they can pay a Mexican immigrant who has a lower cost of living because of their poorer neighbourhood (redlining, etc), lower rent, WHICH PERSON WOULD YOU RATHER PAY, AS A BUSINESS? IT’S OBVIOUS!

These people aren’t economists and philosophers. They are anti racist, virtue signaling idiots.

The so‐​called displacement effect, which is the term for when immigrant workers push native‐​born American workers out of the labor market, is rarely ever even observed in practice and always very small when it is detected.

The article that is hyperlinked is hidden behind a password and username requirement.

Third, immigration doesn’t much affect the wages of native‐​born Americans in the long run. Initially, more immigration might slightly lower wages.

YOU JUST LOST THE ARGUMENT AGAIN!

However, that decline in wages raises the relative price of capital, which are the tools that workers use to produce goods and services. As a result, the profits from capital increase and investors respond by producing more capital, which causes its price to fall. A consequence of more capital is that workers become more productive, which results in higher wages for them.

This red herring ignores the fact that an immigrant got the job INSTEAD OF THE AMERICAN IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I love how this implies that natural born Americans are just lazy and won’t do the work and they suck as their jobs. The threat of simply being fired isn’t good enough of a motivator for the common American to keep them in line apparently. LOL. They need the extra threat of an immigrant who is willing to take a lower wage come in and scoop up their job. SIMPLY ABSURD!

A large increase in the supply of low‐​skilled workers could lower the relative wages of similarly‐​skilled workers even after the capital markets adjust, it’s just that economy‐​wide wages should be about the same as they were prior to the immigration. The economic evidence is that the wages of native‐​born Americans slightly increase due to immigration after the capital markets adjust, with perhaps slightly lower wages for native‐​born American high school dropouts, but that the wages for immigrant workers fall the most. In other words, new immigrants only have a consistently negative impact on the wages of other immigrants but not on natives. That’s because immigrants are most substitutable or competitive with other immigrant workers and are not really substitutable for many native‐​born American workers. Native‐​born American workers also react to immigration by making themselves less substitutable with immigrant workers by getting more education.

This may be fine in some cases, BUT NOT ALL. And THAT’S THE POINT. That SOME AMERICANS are falling victim to being fired and being replaced by a lower wage taking worker who can afford it due to where they live, or Americans aren’t going to get hired AT ALL thanks to the supply of low labour.
Here’s the hyperlink claim:
https://www.nationalacademies.org/news/2016/09/new-report-assesses-the-economic-and-fiscal-consequences-of-immigration
Here is the actual report hidden behind a pay wall or username and password wall:
https://www.nap.edu/catalog/23550/the-economic-and-fiscal-consequences-of-immigration

Finally:

Massive cuts in legal immigration don’t raise wages either.

But I thought if people worked hard and made more product, the economy expanded and grew and bosses could afford to give raises. This happens to jobs with natural born Americans ALL THE TIME. So why the need for mass immigration then when the following was already admitted?

Initially, more immigration might slightly lower wages.

In response to COVID-19, the U.S. economy is in recession and unemployment is skyrocketing so the benefits of immigrating here are falling.

The best research on this is by economists Michael Clemens, Ethan Lewis, and Hannah Postel who study the effectiveness of the U.S. government’s 1964 termination of the Bracero program. That temporary farm worker program was cancelled to raise the wages of American farm workers by reducing the total size of the workforce. They found that ending lower‐​skilled migration for farm workers had little measurable effect on the labor market for Americans who worked in those occupations. Farmers didn’t respond to the cancellation of Bracero by raising wages, but by using machines to harvest crops and altered the crops they planted to take account of the new dearth of workers. Instead of planting crops that required labor‐​intensive harvesting or care, they planted other crops that required many fewer workers. Farmers turned to machines like tomato pickers and changed methods for planting and harvesting other crops to take account of the newer wages they would have faced had they stuck with the Bracero‐​era farm techniques. Those new methods were more expensive, but cheaper than raising wages.

So because something happened in 1964 with farmers, that means that what I just said above about a restaurant is wrong. LOL. Laughable.

Refresh:

 

I’ve written much about the economic effects of immigration before, but here are some big takeaway points related to the recent immigration ban:

Since most of the articles are hidden behind paywalls, I did find one that was NOT.
https://www.cato.org/commentary/reducing-immigration-will-not-satisfy-trump-voters-its-bad-idea-anyway

Immigrants of all skill levels have both a supply and demand effect on the economy as a whole and on the labor market specifically. On the supply side, immigration increases the number of workers. In a very simple model this would decrease wages, but immigrants and natives tend to work in very different occupations, meaning there isn’t much competition between the two groups. In other words, an increase in the supply of farm workers will not lower the wages for accountants.

See that guys? Because of this one cherry picked example, there isn’t a SINGLE CASE where an American who would need a certain wage to help his cost of living, was not undercut by an immigrant worker who could afford to take a lower wage. EVERY SINGLE JOB that an immigrant gets is NOT one that could have been used by an American. Again, this amazing liberal omniscience just astounds me.

The estimated negative wage impacts of lower‐​skilled immigrants are very small when they are even discovered. George Borjas’ famous work discovered small relative wage declines from immigration that are concentrated among lower‐​skilled Americans.

YOU JUST LOST THE ARGUMENT. Lower skilled Americans are getting the shaft.

According to a recent update of that paper which copies his methods but adds another ten years of analysis, the negative effect statistically disappears. At worst, the roughly 10 percent of Americans with only less than a high school degree actually compete against immigrants, but there are reasons to doubt that finding.

That paper is a free pdf when you go to that page. Second of all, THESE REASONS ARE NOT GIVEN. They just move on to the next stage. They really hate lower class Americans don’t they. Hmmm. I thought that these liberals were all about the proletariat.

Other research finds complementary effects whereby lower‐​skilled Americans actually experience wage increases due to immigration. In such cases, more immigrant workers create job opportunities for lower‐​skilled Americans, pushing them up the wage ladder. Crucial here is noticing that occupations can face falling wages as a result of immigration but American workers change their behavior and shift into higher‐​paying occupations as a result.

No footnotes or evidence for this above claim.

The most interesting effect here is that newer immigrants compete with the immigrants who preceded them, not much with native‐​born Americans who are similarly skilled. Even then, research by David Card and Ethan Lewis looked at how new Mexican immigrants displaced older Mexican immigrants and found small effects.

And so this proves what? That NO MEXICAN ANYTIME, ANYWHERE took a job that an American could have used? There’s that liberal omniscience again. LOL.

If younger lower‐​skilled American men are more interested in playing video games in their parent’s home than in working, kicking out a few hard‐​working immigrants, stopping their future flow, and possibly raising wages by a few percent won’t make a difference. All we’d be doing is replacing good, willing workers with nobody.

There you go. Americans are lazy. Fuck them. Bring in immigrants, possibly illegal, that ADMITTEDLY DRIVE DOWN WAGES, but then somehow they magically go back up.

Anyone is free to check out page 3 of the topic The Alt-Right Playbook which I posted above. They are also free to check out this:

The Conservatives move to end low-skilled immigration to Britain

TAKE A LESS IN LOGIC AND ECONOMICS, LIBERALS!!!

Labour Party before: “Raise the minimum wage! People can’t live on these awfully low salaries!”

Labour Party now: “Keep the wages low! Business owners are going to be negatively affected by the shortage of low-skilled labour!”

Zero-principle, full-contrarian, hypocritical, flip-flopping snakes. Exactly what everyone expected.

Immigration hurts African Americans
