I think the major difference, is that those entering the country, have a "work ethic" those who had the easy route handed to them by EOE (where race determined merit), believe we owe them something, immigrants just want to work. A mexican worker will show up every day for work and even work on weekends, because they want to work and make money not only to send home, but also to better their lives.
What we now have in this country is a majority who are black, that never had to play in a game where "merit" and "brains" were a determining factor for upward mobility. Instead, they believe being illiterate, knocked up and milking the welfare system and living in public housing is a much better life, that requires little imagination, little ambition, and no real moral values.
Sorry, but I do not feel obligated as an American for the blacks who continue to feed off of their "abuse" when ancestors were in fact slaves. It is about time we eliminate the dual standards in this country where preferential treatment is provided one racial group, as to jobs or education. Adios Amigos. John
Under the Gang of 8’s backroom immigration deal with Senators Schumer, Corker and Hoeven, formerly illegal immigrants who are amnestied will be eligible to work, but will not be eligible for ObamaCare. Employers who would be required to pay as much as a $3,000 penalty for most employees who receive an ObamaCare healthcare “exchange” subsidy, would not have to pay the penalty if they hire amnestied immigrants
If the immigration bill becomes law, many employers could receive incentives of hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire amnestied immigrants over American citizens. In addition, these newly legalized immigrants could work “full-time,” an advantage for companies and businesses as well, while employers could lay off or diminish to “part-time” status, American workers.
