By 10 a.m., a crowd of dozens was on hand, and steady stream of people came and went. Most were black and spoke with accents from the American South.

Must be a job fair for jobs they said Americans didn't want.

Exactly!

People don't want to compete with the illegally low wages accepted by illegals.

Just think how many USA citizens would be looking for jobs if all the welfare ended. We wouldn't need a single low-skilled immigrant for the next 50 years.

The Koch boys now have to worry about the American workers forming a Union. Did not have to worry about that with an illegal alien workforce. Why on Earth are Unions not supporting such ICE raids?

Because unions now are pretty much gov jobs which are Democrates, private sector union jobs are a shadow of what they were.

Because they are in the tank with the Democrat 'coalition'. In general, union members and even some of the bosses seethe at this as well as the crap with the Greens in the coalition, too. But, they keep supporting Dems in the hope things will change.

Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university. This total includes roughly 800,000 Americans who graduate with skilled degrees in business or health care, engineering or science, software or statistics.

But the federal government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes a resident population of roughly 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately 1 million H-1B workers and spouses — plus roughly 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.

The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year.

This policy of inflating the labor supply boosts economic growth for investors because it transfers wages to investors and ensures that employers do not have to compete for American workers by offering higher wages and better working conditions.

In Gainesville, poultry workers vanish amid rumors of Mississippi-style raid

Spanish-language media reports that hundreds of poultry workers in Hall County walked away from their jobs Thursday, in response to rumors of ICE raids on local processing plants -- raids that didn’t happen.

Thursday’s walk-out is evidence of the presence of undocumented workers in those plants, Gonzalez said. “Without a doubt there are undocumented workers in Georgia’s agriculture industry. Even if they use E-Verify – the plants in Mississippi used E-Verify. That doesn’t mean they’re not using undocumented workers,” he said.

This is brilliant: make one real raid and spread rumors about 10 more. Rinse, repeat. Soon enough the employers will realize that hiring illegals is more trouble than it worth.

Without a job, how can you ever aspire to Workman's Comp and Disability?

Agreed. The raid is a gift that keeps on giving!

I should go to 4chan and suggest creating rumors.
