SAN FRANCISCO (Map, News) - One of the major labor issues facing the United States today is one nobody in Washington is willing to talk about. But unless they do, Johns Hopkins economist Steve Hanke said, they canít make intelligent decisions about immigration because they arenít dealing with a key source of the problem: labor dumping. Labor dumping is what centralized and socialist governments do to evade the consequences of not allowing their citizens to enjoy the opportunities and prosperity that come with a free-market economy. These governments send millions of unemployed citizens to countries with free markets. Thatís because nations with the lowest tax and regulatory burdens typically grow faster and create more jobs than countries with state-run economies.

Maybe some of the members from government officials' staff should peruse various threads in this forum; they could have found out the information contained in this article awhile back.

They'll keep coming as long as our government lets them come. Washington likes the idea of businesses using cheap labor to turn a higher profit. The higher profit businesses turn, the more money that's paid into the US Treasury. Cheap labor is used to expand our GDP, but there is a huge draw back to labor dumping, and its the huge financial, social, and criminal expenditures dumped on state and local governments. Which Washington really cares very little about. And as citizens we will be paying the tab for these illegals for generations.

But is it turning more money into the tax system, when they go down the street to the local "Express Money to Mexico" joint and send the money home?

I hate agreeing with this swift-boater about ANYTHING, but he's right about immigration in my opinion. I guess it goes to show that everyone can agree on something, sometime.
