Flake Admits Backlash Against Immigration
Reform, But Doesn´t ´Understand´

Breitbart TV, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/10/2014 10:34:02 AM

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the current state of affairs surrounding the issue of immigration. Flake, the guest of the show’s occasionally occurring “Center Seat” segment, admitted the rise of a populist movement opposing any immigration reform movement that included a version of amnesty. However, he admitted to being perplexed as to why there’s such an opposition stating there’s a need for not only low-skill labor “particularly in the agricultural areas and hospitality areas,” but high-skill labor of “those in the STEM fields.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHEN HAYES, Weekly Standard: You

Comments:
I cannot believe that Flake continues to insist that there is a need for low skilled workers as well as high skilled workers. There are stories every day about Americans who cannot get a job in the high skilled workers. He didn´t utter a word about closing that border. I´m really sick of these squishy Republicans who insist the need for an immigration bill when the current laws aren´t even enforced.

Flake was weak. And his flashing his eyes and his smiles every couple of seconds, regardless of what he was saying at the time, sent very odd messages. Nervous tic? Trying to convey lots of personality? I´m a real insider know-all guy? Not good.

He seemed flaky to me.

I understand what Flake was saying. The jobs requiring low or no skills are going begging here in Texas. Hotels can´t get maintenance or service workers and fast-food places are desperate for hirees. If every illegal in the country was sent home tomorrow, the "resort" and recreation industries would shut down the next day. This is a sad fact. The answer, as I heard Flake say earlier, is a guest-worker program as we used to have. That program worked well and it would be a method for getting the undocumented into a computer base where they could be monitored if they were allowed work permits.

For my own clarification, I wish any of the people who are working or postulating on "immigration reform" would be specific. I´m leery of anything labeled as "comprehensive", so what parts need to be rewritten, thrown out or tweaked?

low skill?? Does that include painters, roofers, drywallers, framers etc. I´m in the Pacific NW and it seems that at a lot of construction sites I visit, spanish is the predominant language.
I´m not up on current wages, but it used to be that a lot of people made a decent living at any of the above jobs.

It´s a LIE that we need more STEM workers. Newly graduated American Citizens can´t get jobs in those fields and there has been a constant outsourcing of that work overseas.

I have a friend who works at a high level in these fields and says that ´temporary workers´ in these areas are coming to the US, being trained by US workers, only to return to their home countries and take the job from the person who just trained them. This is happening on a rotating program of 90,000 individuals.

Its a LIE!

If the mainstream republican party doesn´t find its gonads they will be looking at a new crop of libertarian voters that they caused. Sarah Palin has more testosterone than McConnell, Boehner, McCain and most of our GOP lawmakers put together. Americans are looking for a leader not a mealy mouthed professional office seeker. We´re looking for truth and responsibility.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), a big part of America´s problems for being a Marxist democrat in a supposed republican party of which I now believe the whole two party thing is a lie. America has one political party an it is not one that perpetuates a free people in control of their government, no, it perpetuates a slave people under control of a Marxist communist government for all intents and purposes. They just don´t have enough people fooled to give them the 2/3rds. they need to throw out the constitution, yet. They are well on their way of attaining this goal.

#2, my first job was grafting peach branches onto nursery stock.
My second was cleaning out gas station toilets.
I took both jobs since so few others were around to do it-rural area- that they paid above average.
Now lets look at the ILLEGAL immigrants:
work force = X# of people = wages set lower as available pool of workers is high.
work force = .5X, wages RISE as the pool is smaller.
PLENTY of Americans would do the job if the labor pool was not so large as to artificially deflate the wages.

#´s 4 & 5 know what the deal really is.

OP, my sentiments exactly. Enough Americans are out of jobs so that they can take those low-skilled jobs if they want to. One of the problems is that they are getting paid more in welfare NOT to work than to work a low-skilled job.

I agree that talk of border security is far more to the point than needing low-skilled workers, because we all know that most of those low-skilled illegals will go on welfare rather than actually get jobs.

So I don´t get Flake´s perspective. The "backlash" against immigration isn´t against immigration. It´s against illegal immigration, a problem this POTUS and his Party adamantly refuse to address.

It is a straw man argument to speculate about the impact on the resort industry "if every illegal was sent home tomorrow." No one advocates mass deportations. But it is a must to protect the sovereignty of the USA with strict border control. Americans are unwilling to take low end jobs at the current wage scale which is sharply depressed by the presence of millions of illegals. The elitist, investment class benefit from the exploitation of illegals workers who are heavily subsidized by the beleagured middle class. Illegals are net tax recipients and everybody knows it.

The appropriately surnamed "Flake" is a RINO. What else is there to say? If he understood, he would be on our side.

#2: How about letting capitalism work? Increase wages, improve working conditions (including speaking English on the job), and the millions of unemployed Americans - especially young people - will fill them. Case in point: there is no shortage of NYC trash collectors - there is a price point for every job.

If sufficient manual labor cannot be found, then automation and mechanization can be employed to reduce the demand. Capitalism can find a solution short of illegal immigration slavery.

Prices will rise, but by how much? Exactly what percentage of the retail price of a head of lettuce goes to the migrant who picked it? What percentage of the hotel bill goes to the bell hop? Those portions of the tab are minimal, as will be the impact of letting the market work.

As to STEM workers, of which I am one: there are millions on the sidelines - retired and otherwise underemployed - ready and able to pick up the slack once tech employers become willing to give another look. How about training and re-training your workers, like tech companies used to do in the 70s and 80s? How about ending defacto age discrimination? H-1B visas should be limited to extraordinary cases.

41 years ago I was visiting friends in San Diego & while we were outside enjoying the weather I noticed a convoy of trucks on the highway below.

Asked if this was a military exercise they said "no" it was farm workers coming in from Mexico; the trucks were provided by the growers. Now this isn´t a discussion about the working conditions of the workers, I mention it only because the transportation in & out of the country seemed to work well. I wonder how many able bodied people on welfare in CA and elsewhere can take a couple of shifts a week in this area & have their compensation go into the welfare fund. That sounds heartless to many but it is doable; wasn´t it something like Clinton´s workfare program?

Also, many of the resorts & restaurants, etc., on Cape Cod & the Jersey Shore utilized college age students from NY, NJ, OH, CT, MA & RI - usually, but not always, those that were in a degree hospitality program @ their schools Granted the Cape is seasonal & probably a poor example, however, the work experience was often translated into jobs at home, around their colleges or wherever the job opportunities took them after graduation. What has changed that? Unfortunately, I have more questions than answers.

If he is still perplexed, he is dumber than sand. The reson Americians don´t take those jobs is because illegals have driven the wages down so low, hence the min wage whinners.

This country will never eliminate poverty because the establishment republicans and democrats will always import it, so we can never advance, will always be burdened with all the problems associated with poverty, including discontent, crime, disease, out of control schools and hospitals.

apparently many here understand what the self-named "elites" do not. Many of us, Dear Wife and I included, have DONE many of those "jobs Americans will not do". We´ve picked fruit, cleaned toilets, washed dishes, caught chickens, swept floors and a whole lot else. And we know others who can say likewise. And we grew up making a buck doing some of them. And did some well after passing the age of 18.
But our kids couldn´t do most of them, and your kids can´t either, because Illegal aliens are. And we all know it.
H1-B´s are taking the STEM jobs that lots went heavily in debt to be educated and credentialed for. Only to see the jobs go to folks from Egypt, Pakistan, Mumbai, or Chile. Or the available positions restricted to "protected classes", or what a headhunter I spoke with calls the "left handed Lebanese Lesbians", and for a white male pay half of the ´normal´ rate of 10-15 years ago.
Ask me how I know.
So top-level bankers with family connections do ok. And you can often find a job stocking shelves at WalMart, or repeating "would you like fries with that" at a fast food joint. Outside of that, not so much, including construction and other traditionally well-paying blue collar jobs.
We expect the party of Obumble, Clintoon, Cynthia McKinnie, Grijalva, and such to intend damage to the nation and the people. What hurts is that we see as an alternative the party of Jebbie Boosh, Eric Cantor, Jeff Flake, McVain, Lindsey Graham, Lamar Alexander, Mark Pryor, Olympia Snowe, Boehner, and the whole Chamber of Commerce types, equally intent on plunging daggers into our backs.
he´s probably telling the truth. H doesn´t understand. I don´t understand why the people of Arizona have sent two worthless illegitimi to the Senate.

#2. Nope. Those Texas hotels have simply set their system up to hire and run their business using only low skill Mexicans. Actually, the dumber (not a slam, merely mean not educated) the better management tends to like it. Illegals are too scared to make demands for better benefits and pay. These employers get no sympathy from me. Since Texas hotels are booming? Advertise better pay and you will see plenty of folks who just plain need jobs (yes they exist in Texas) and those jobs will be filled.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

Alton Nolen, the suspect in the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma this week, grew up in a rough neighborhood in the small town of Idabel, and was filled with anger and resentment, according to a friend from the neighborhood.

And hope that it helps to restore the public’s trust and confidence in the sport’s ability to deal with players’ off-field misbehavior. Holder is expected to resign as attorney general of the United States, making him available to help with the NFL’s current rash of off-field incidents.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

In an update on Friday afternoon, one of the country´s leading independent political handicappers broadened its assessment of how many House seats Republicans are likely to win this fall. "Regardless of whether you want to call it a wave," wrote the Rothenberg Political Report´s Nathan Gonzales -- the sort of qualifier that will keep Democratic operatives up at night -- "the fight for the House continues to creep into Democratic territory." Talk of a Republican tsunami made us wonder: Where could the 114th Congress stand on the list of the most-lopsided Houses in history? After all, the party has rolled

President Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C. on Saturday. According to a White House transcript of the speech, Obama said the following: “All around the country, wherever I see folks, they always say, oh, Barack, we’re praying for you – boy, you’re so great; look, you got all gray hair, you looking tired. (Laughter.) We’re praying for you. Which I appreciate…” Here’s the video:(Snip for video)Obama must only be getting his feedback on the golf course as the rest of the country doesn’t think he’s so great these days. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released last week had

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new

This Kmart store was looted during the August riots. This is a typical consequence by corporate businesses as they view “high risk” neighborhoods and communities. The operational risks, crime, lawsuits, et al, are too high to remain in business – and the actuaries recommend closure.In addition Gateway Pundit shares - On Wednesday, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson told reporters the QuikTrip convenience store that burned down would rebuild in Ferguson. Not True. QuikTrip has no plans to rebuild in Ferguson, Missouri. A QuikTrip representative wrote The Gateway Pundit on Friday in response to Captain Johnson’s comments: “Thank you for asking.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked neurosurgeon and GOP novelty Ben Carson, who is very vocally teasing a presidential run, if his inexperience disqualified him from the office, especially given the results of Obama’s alleged inexperience. “After looking at Barack Obama and what’s happened with his lack of political experience over the last six years, wouldn’t putting Ben Carson in the Oval Office be akin to putting a politician in an operating room and having him perform one of your brain surgeries?” Wallace asked. Shockingly, Carson said no. “I think what is required for leadership is wisdom and the

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”
