Russell Berman of thehill.com must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this morning being that his article was published at 6am EST. His article was created to speak to the emotions of liberal voters, seemingly to piss them off and drum up a response against Republicans/Conservatives for forcing current amnesty/illegal immigration negotiations to break down.
Not only did Berman skirt the title, he used Black congressional members to speak to the issue on immigration. This is by far one of the most racist associations that I have seen in a while. Berman was actually speaking about Rep Luis Gutiérrez’s and what he was going through in speaking with President Obama and Chuck Schumer but instead of using Gutiérrez’s by himself, he also adds Black Congressional representatives which turns the entire article on it’s head.
Americans that will be hurt more by illegal immigration is the Black Community by far. In an article dated February 18, 2013 by the National Review, the first paragraph set the stage for the entire article by mentioning “the demonstrably deleterious effect illegal immigration has on the employment and wage levels of low-skilled Americans, particularly blacks.”
Blacks, particularly black men, are disproportionately concentrated in the low-skill labor market and are disproportionately likely to have no more than a high-school diploma. Likewise, illegal immigrants are disproportionately male and also disproportionately likely to have minimal educational levels. Both groups compete with one another in the low-skill labor market (and the competition is most fierce in some of the very industries in which blacks historically have been highly concentrated). Blacks frequently lose that competition, crowded out by illegal immigrants who, for various reasons, are preferred by many employers.
Russell Berman, Article Writer for Thehill.com does more than just skirt the issue on “immigration dying” in latest post
On another note, he words the article in a false manner. Immigration hasn’t died and someone needs to inform him as such. Illegal Immigration is not working to the benefit of the Democrat Party and it’s going to be hard for them to actually get something done because of the forces behind the scenes not budging on issues.
Articles like this need to be called out for what they are – An attack on the American psyche.
