White House: Pathway to citizenship
would boost GDP by $1.4T over decade

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/14/2013 11:08:28 AM

The White House on Tuesday released a new report arguing a pathway to citizenship for the nation´s 11 million illegal immigrants would add 2 million jobs to the economy and boost gross domestic product by $1.4. trillion over the next decade. The report, penned by Director of Domestic Policy Cecilia Muñoz and Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling, is the latest in a series of releases touting the economic benefits of comprehensive immigration reform as the White House pushes House Republicans to act on the issue.

Comments:
Oh please stop the lies!! I´m so sick of their pathological lying and fraudulent "reports" that manipulate the facts and are anything but reliable. Granting amnesty to millions of illiterate, uneducated and untrained individuals will bankrupt the education, welfare and healthcare systems of this country.

Some people want to see the president´s birth certificate.

I´d be happy with his grade in economics.

And just how does adding 11 million low wage workers to the employable roles add new jobs?
Since any new minimum wage worker is required to purchase insurance, the subsidy has to be subtracted from any alleged increase in GDP. A new $16k job with a $10k subsidy for family insurance doesn´t sound all that good. Oh, and then there is the food stamp subsidy and the Section 8 housing subsidy. How is this a winner????

Has anyone ever asked actual employers whether or not they will be hiring former illegals? I´m sure some will because they can get them cheap, but I´d like to see statistics on potential hiring from employers, not the administration.

Not really, they forgot to factor in all the welfare and other costs...

I´d say the net gain will be $48.35.

How do I know that? Take the WH estimate and divide it by the square of the miles across Mexico, add in a negative factor for Islam´ites coming here and divide by the number of Stupid Democrats...all of them.

In an internet posting today, the Kafir National Watch Group stated that:

A pathway to citizenship for the nation´s 11 million illegal immigrants would add 32 million new Democrap voters, quadruple the illegitimate birth rate and triple the national illiteracy rate by the end of this decade.

In addition, the Group stated that the unemployment rate would rise to 10 percent immediately after implementation and would cycle between 12 and 15 percent for a few decades until successive civil wars separated the functional Mid West, Mountain and Gulf states from the dysfunctional East and West coasts.

Also stated was the probability that Maine, NH and VT would be incorporated by a newly independent Newfoundland after the 2020 general elections.

Included in the posting was that the East and West coast would devolve into chaos that would make a Mad Max movie look like a Sunday walk in the park and the Southwest´s Hizpanic/Non-Hizpanic endemic turmoil would resemble Northern Ireland of the mid 1900s.

If illegal border crossers are such an economic asset, one wonders why Mexico lets them cross in the first place. I say we do the right thing and build a fence to ensure that our poorer neighbors to the south are the ones to benefit from this economic bounty.

The lady who authored this report is the former head of La Raza, so she just might have a conflict of interest.

What they don´t say is that such a massive in-sourcing of an estimated 46 million foreign workers and their family members into the legal US job market in the next 10 years is bound to have a huge adverse effect on the future job prospects, wages, work related benefits, and the working conditions of American workers who would have to compete for scarce jobs against such a massive glut of cheap foreign labor. Common sense will tell you that!

They also don´t point out that the social and societal costs will far outpace by double or triple any spike in the GDP that might take place.

This is all about giving the Democrats a huge electoral advantage in the years ahead, as the liberal Democrats know that most of the legalized foreign workers would be poor, generally uneducated and unskilled, just the class of foreign born person who when granted US voting rights has historically voted for the Democrats.

Judge orders Kentucky to begin

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Mario Trujillo    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/27/2014 9:39:03 PM     Post Reply
A federal judge in Kentucky took a final step Thursday forcing the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages performed outside the state. U.S. District Judge John Heyburn was following through on his ruling earlier this month that found a portion of the state´s constitution, which bans the recognition of gay marriage, violates the U.S. Constitution. On Thursday, the judge wrote the amendment was unlawful and "void and unenforceable." The order came shortly after the Kentucky attorney general requested the ruling be delayed for 90 days to give defendants time to appeal and the state time to determine the best way to implement the

Republican allegations that former CIA Acting Director Mike Morell misled Congress over the White House´s role in crafting the flawed Benghazi “talking points” took a dramatic turn Thursday, with the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee telling Fox News it´s likely Morell will be recalled to testify. Investigators also are reviewing the testimony of former CIA Director David Petraeus, Morell’s old boss, to assess whether he should be recalled as well. "We are having some transcript reviews. We´ve been continually doing that through the committee,” Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told Fox News. “We´re looking at Director Petraeus´ transcripts and reviews

Two years and a day after their son’s death, the parents of Trayvon Martin visited the White House on Thursday and were in the audience as President Obama announced a new initiative designed to keep young minority men on the right path. The president mentioned Trayvon’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, during his speech, drawing applause from a crowd gathered in the East Room of the White House. The man who shot and killed Trayvon, George Zimmerman, was found not guilty of murder in a Florida trial last year. The prosecution contended that Mr. Zimmerman singled out Trayvon because of

O’Reilly told Jarrett he doesn’t think the Obama administration sees the “urgency” of many of these problems,” and told her that “you’re going to have to get people like Jay-Z, Kanye West, all of these gangsta rappers, to knock it off.” O’Reilly argued it’s

Washington - In strong, often personal terms, President Barack Obama on Thursday called for vigorous efforts to reverse underachievement among young black and Hispanic males. He also cautioned young minority men not to repeat his own youthful mistakes in an unforgiving world. The president kicked off his "My Brother´s Keeper" initiative from the White House East Room, appearing on stage with teenagers involved in the Becoming a Man program for at-risk boys in his hometown of Chicago. The aim is to "start a different cycle," Obama said. "If we help these wonderful young men become better husbands and fathers and

There are Americans today, holding themselves up as conservatives, who argue that one can be both an atheist and a conservative. This is absurd. There is a God, He made us and all things, and His immutable moral laws apply to all men, in all nations, at all times. These fundamental truths--recognition of which is not confined to any particular religious denomination--were embraced by our Founding Fathers. A social and legal order consistent with these fundamental truths is at the very heart of what modern conservatives seek to conserve. William F. Buckley Jr., founder National Review, wrote the following in

Today President Obama announced a My Brother’s Keeper initiative to help young men of color, and present at the announcement were both Al Sharpton and Bill O’Reilly. This odd coupling did not go unnoticed by the president in his remarks today. Obama spoke about the need to “encourage fathers to stick around and to remove barriers to marriage,” among other things, and said it’s clear that this is such a broadly agreed-upon message that it can bring personalities from two politically disparate networks together. “If I can persuade Sharpton and O’Reilly to be in the same meeting, then it means that there
