The illegal lives in fear of being exposed and deported, and companies know it. Repubs historically do nothing about illegal aliens except complain. Guess why?
Here's an idea - let's perp-walk people who hire them.
Here are some of your right-wing business heroes.

Which is why I don't understand when the Left became so enamored with illegals and mass immigration in general. Historically the Left has been pretty negative towards immigration since it threatens one of their core constituencies, unions.

I hope so too then finally this pandering to illegals would be put to bed, just don't bank on the black unemployed to be part of this swing group.

None of the Black liberal posters on here have even bothered to address the article or the issue just attack the OP.

I really do feel bad for black young people they simply have no one in their corner.

Stereotype much? Let me guess, some of your best friends are Black??
He quoted the article wrong. Those aren't his words but the opinion from the article written by a BLACK author, a BLACK Liberal author to boot.

Is it possible for you Leftists to actually debate an issue without worrying about the motivations of the person posting it?

I would like someone to tell me how American young people, in particular black young people, will benefit from 800K illegals being given work permits overnight.

That's all can you do that?

No supposedly they are just getting work permits for two years but they'll never be deported. I mean there our "temporary" immigrants from Central America as a result of hurricanes nearly 15 years ago. Their visas just keep getting renewed and renewed and renewed. Many immigrants aren't concerned with citizenship, that's why I always get a chuckle when folks like Obama seem to make it out to be a big deal. He'll say since it has no path to citizenship it's not an amnesty! Which is completely disingenuous.

Obama Immigration | Breaking News for Black America

African Americans represent the demographic that is most supportive of President Obama, yet they are the most devastated by the effects of mass incarceration.

With his announcement on illegal immigration, Obama has effectively granted immunity to nearly 800,000 illegal immigrants who clearly broke the law. All the while, he is unwilling to seek the release of thousands of men and women who were sentenced under drug laws that even the president knows to be clearly unjust. He made campaign promises to black Americans that he would fight diligently on their behalf to end the war on drugs, but has shown the courage of a toothless ***** cat who’s had his claws removed.

The time for patience with the Obama Administration should be over, and African Americans who’ve deluded themselves into believing that their first Black president loves them need to take a step back and look at reality.
Very apt Simplistic view to be sure.

As I said,the love affair blacks have for hispanics is kind of strange.

When have hispanics stood behind black causes and agendas?
I will be waiting.

The black posters on here and what I hear on the streets isn't matching up. Most actually agree with the OP.
I think the posters on here are either super liberal or really pro Obama.
Obama is ok but he is very wrong for this.

I can always tell what a conservative is most afraid of by what they post.
That would imply that Blacks and Brown are together. That's laughable. I believe the Latinos are beginning to vote out some long term black politicians. Things should becoming very interesting on the Dem plantation as folks fight to get to the big house.

Harlem Faces a Historic Shift - WSJ.com
Quote:
Now, redistricting under way by the state legislature combined with a fast-rising Hispanic population are threatening to overturn that history. There are more Hispanics than blacks in Mr. Rangel's district, raising the prospect that Harlem's roughly 200,000 African-Americans will lose their dominant role in choosing the district's member of Congress.

Similar issues are emerging in several areas around the country, including Southern California, where the growing Hispanic population poses a challenge to three black-held seats.

"It's definitely becoming harder across the country to create as many majority African-American districts as were created in the 1990s and 2000s, and if you really can't create a majority African-American district based on Harlem anymore, that's pretty dramatic," said Richard Pildes, a New York University professor whose writing on district lines has been cited by the Supreme Court.
Ho hum let me know how that Brown/Black thing works out for you guys.

Yeah I think the Black Leftist posters on here aren't representative at all. In Maryland we started a petition to overturn a law that would give illegals in state tuition. Black talk radio was abuzz in denouncing the law and I know many Blacks signed the petition to get the law put on the ballot. Should be voted down in November.

I think the Black Leftist posters secretly agree but don't want to appear to be agreeing with their nemesis, white conservative posters, that's most important to them.

It can actually be argued hispanics have more in common with whites than blacks.
I have never heard or saw any hispanics who tried to emulate blacks, be it positive or negative.

Where were all the hispanics when there marches for Civil rights act?
