I missed this story last week, but got it today thanks to Richard Falknor at Blue Ridge Forum who sent me this post at Debbie Schlussel from a few days ago.
Now why do you think billionaires and these multinational companies want amnesty for illegal aliens? To be nice to the downtrodden of the world? To add to our diversity because its good for us? Or, because they want cheap labor flooding the job market? You decide.
NEW YORK — Chief executives of several major corporations, including Hewlett-Packard, Boeing, Disney and News Corp., are joining Mayor Michael Bloomberg to form a coalition advocating for immigration reform – including a path to legal status for all undocumented immigrants now in the United States.
The group includes several other big-city mayors and calls itself the Partnership for a New American Economy. It seeks to reframe immigration reform as the solution to repairing and stimulating the economy.
Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch, chairman and CEO of News Corp., appeared together Thursday on Fox News to discuss the effort.
“We’re just going to keep the pressure on the congressmen,” Murdoch said. “I think we can show to the public the benefits of having migrants and the jobs that go with them.”
Bloomberg added, “Somebody has to lead and explain to the country why this is in our interest.”
Whose interest Mayor? The rich people?
If you are a Far Left Open Borders advocate, how do you sleep at night knowing that you are on the same side as the billionaires exploiting immigrant labor and hurting the average American worker?
I notice we have ImmigrationWorksUSA’s Tamar Jacoby weighing in favorably here as well. We told you about them here when they were working with other so-called conservatives like Grover Norquist (Americans for Tax Reform) to craft a legislative strategy.
ImmigrationWorks USA, a national federation of businesses that support immigration, welcomed Bloomberg’s group to the effort. Tamar Jacoby, the organization’s president and CEO, said the coalition’s main contribution would likely be the extra attention and power it can bring to the debate.
“I don’t know that they’re going to be in the trenches everyday organizing grass roots, following the policy process,” Jacoby said. “It’s more a 30,000-foot approach – these big names adding their muscle to the push to get this on the table.”
Bloomberg spokesman Jason Post said no money has been spent on the effort yet, and he could not say whether the group will be a standard nonprofit, a political action committee or a group known as a 501(c)4 nonprofit, which can operate outside the more strict limits governing political action committees.
The business leaders in the coalition employ more than 650,000 people and make more than $220 billion in annual sales, combined.
I guess its going to be an uphill battle for Tea Party types and the average patriotic American worker. We have to oppose Obama, Far Left Open Borders Advocates, Democrats who want more voters, Fox News, Billionaires, Multinational corporations, that’s all!
By the way, this is all just further proof of my theory that the Refugee Resettlement program is a bogus humanitarian effort—it’s just all about labor (cheap labor!).
