Gutierrez -- bought and paid for by the cheap labor corporations. He obviously has no intention of bringing jobs for Americans, improving the US economy or bringing up wages. It's all about cheap labor, and he's a puppet of his cheap labor masters.

Bringing millions of people when unemployment rates are sky high speaks volumes of where his loyalty is. Americans are hurting and all he can think about is more and more cheap labor immigrants.

He has created no jobs at all, the economy is a mess and a big reason for that mess was the housing bubble that benefitted the illegals so much until it burst.

From Wikipedia:

The 4th Congressional District of Illinois includes part of Cook County, and has been represented by Democrat Luis Gutierrez since January 1993.

It was featured by The Economist as one of the most strangely drawn and gerrymandered congressional districts in the country. It was created to contain two majority Hispanic parts of Chicago.

This district covers two strips running east-west across the city of Chicago, Illinois on the west side continuing into smaller portion of some suburban areas in Cook County, surrounding Illinois' 7th congressional district. The northern portion is largely Puerto Rican, while the southern portion is heavily Mexican. The two sections are on opposite sides of the city and are only connected by a piece of Interstate 294 to the west; the highway is in the district while the surrounding areas are not.

The subprime loans were mostly about illegals. Read up on that.

The housing bubble was about illegals. It was all about gobs of cheap labor brought in to make for big quick profits by the housing developers, entire subdivisions of cheaply constructed houses were built overnight. Cheap toxic drywall tacked up by illegals and of course the booming population required millions of houses but the low wages they eagerly accepted didn't allow for them to take out conventional mortgages, so the subprime loans were designed to meet the needs of illegals.

Then it all went poof.

The Great American Mortgage Scam & The Latino Community

The Latino community has been one of the hardest hit by the recent foreclosure crisis.....

One obvious indicator that should have tipped off policy makers about the impending housing bubble and mortgage crisis was the national average wage. Since about 1973, median home prices have risen more quickly than have wages, and since Latinos typically earn less than their white counterparts, the prospect of homeownership became even more risky. In the five years from 2000-2005, the median American family’s income slid by 2.9% in contrast to a gain of 11.3% experienced by American families in the second half of the 1990s. During that same period, wages in Hispanic and black families fell by even more. However, corporate profits rose from 17.7% in 2000 to 20.9% in 2003.

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s Hogar Advisory Committee included some high profile people of the banking and housing sector including representatives from Washington Mutual, the National Council of La Raza, the Executive Director of NALEO, Congresswomen Ros-Lehtinen and Velazquez, and former HUD Secretary and CEO of American City Vista, Henry Cisneros. Hogar Sponsors included the following entities: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Citigroup, HSBC, Countrywide Home Loans, PMI Mortgage Insurance Company, State Farm, Washington Mutual, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Chase Home Finance, New Century Financial, G.E. Consumer Finance, and Ameriquest.

Two months ago, The Wall Street Journal reported on Hogar’s ties to the subprime industry. Specifically, companies that donated $150,000 could place a research fellow to conduct Hogar’s studies to be used by the mortgage and housing industry lobbyists. For donations of $100,000 per year, Hogar would provide press releases from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to promote a particular lender’s products to the Latino community.
