"Check Out The Ghosts Now Working At Chipotle -- CATO Says The New Workers Can't Really Exist"

By Roy Beck,

In yet another attempt to persuade Americans that illegal immigration is good for them, the libertarian CATO Institute is waging a campaign claiming that foreign workers (legal or illegal) don't harm American workers -- they just take jobs that Americans wouldn't do anyway.
I'll bet you a burrito made with integrity that I can prove CATO wrong at any number of Chipotle restaurants across the country.
CATO's Dan Griswold recently testified against immigration enforcement at the House Immigration Subcommittee. After Republican Members showed no receptivity to his arguments, he took his argument to the Daily Caller

Wow, the leaders of other Countries (and ours apparently) must think that the average American is reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally stupid to buy into this.


Got that? The best way to put more Americans back to work is to bring in more foreign workers! As ridiculous as that sounds to us common Americans, that is the argument that most prevails in the editorial boards of the nation's newspapers, in the think tanks around Washington and among the academics who get quoted.

It’s as asinine as claiming we can’t secure our borders until/unless we grant a path to citizenship (amnesty) to the untold millions already here.

Well, we'd probably need more welfare workers. It could create jobs there.

heck yes..we need to hired more people so they can process the welfare claim and checks in more efficient way. And then we need more USPS workers to delivered the checks to the welfare recipient or hired some people to do the electronic transfers of Independent card. Also we need to have more buses or built more rails (connecting from good neighborhood to bad ones so they can go to work when a lot of them have better cars than me!!...don't believe me? Take a drive down the hood) and the newly improved public transportation will help them to buy "food" or go to work to get out of the welfare system!

Then we need to hired more social workers to check on them so they have all their needs met since they don't have a job or life ain't fair and everyone fault but their own. Cellphone companies stock will improved and hired more people improved their network since everybody have a IPHONE, Blackberry or some sort of "smartphone" for smart people.
