As if we don’t have enough issues to deal with, now we have even more ILLEGALS flooding into the United States under Obama’s amnesty open door policy. Apparently the Obama administration thinks illegal immigration is the most important issue to deal with; its more than apparent he values illegals over US citizens and the current deficit crisis!
Breitbart reported that USA Today, Alan Gomez wrote this week that “there is growing consensus that changes in the economies of Latin America and the U.S. are creating the perfect climate for another wave of undocumented immigrants racing north.”
Gomez references a recent report from the Inter-American Development Bank that concludes Latin American nations would suffer dramatically due to a slowdown in China’s economy, raising commodities prices worldwide.
Gomez was quoted as saying that “The slow-but-steady economic recovery in the USA could also hurt Latin American economies because of rising interest rates and the U.S. Federal Reserve slowing its bond purchases in the region,” Gomez wrote. “Add an improved outlook in U.S. sectors that tend to lure low-skilled immigrants, like construction and retail, and the conditions are ideal for unemployed Latin Americans trying to find work in America.”
Gomez argues that passing the Senate Gang of Eight bill or a package of House bills like it, however, could stop the coming expected wave of illegal immigration. “House Republican leaders like Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, keep saying that immigration changes are a priority that must get done this year,” Gomez wrote. “But as the midterm elections approach, time is running out. If Congress fails, the only certainty remaining will be that we’re on the verge of another wave of illegal immigration.”
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that the Gang of Eight bill would cut illegal immigration by only 50 percent.
