Democrats back $15 minimum wage while aiding cheap migrant labor

Democrats like to portray themselves as global humanitarians, backing loose border controls that open America’s doors to the wretched and suffering from poverty stricken and war torn countries.

They provide illegal aliens with safe harbor in their sanctuary cities and crumbs from America’s table, ensuring that they have access to free healthcare, cheap or free college education, driver’s licenses and jobs.

These unauthorized residents are forever beholden to Democrats for plucking them out of their wretched existential conditions. This should be commendable and heartwarming until we examine the grim reality of the lives illegal aliens live and the millions of American citizens being displaced to accommodate their needs.

 Why are Democrats encouraging people to cross the border illegally to join America’s underclass, exposed to raids from immigration enforcement and dodging deportation?

Los Angeles Times writer Frank Shyong has been documenting the misery of legal and illegal migrants in the city’s Koreatown kitchens who work for long hours in terrible conditions for low wages. The Asian American columnist covers diversity and diaspora issues for the newspaper.

 These workers live “a life of blatant wage theft, racial discrimination, constant stress, exploitation and job insecurity,” Shyong wrote in a July 29 article.

“The cleaning solution for the metal grills is actually a type of acid that dishwashers say causes allergies, damages their hands and throws off fumes that make them choke,” he wrote. “One dishwasher even got some of the acid in his eyes and went blind,” Shyong noted. Illegals are working all across America in similar conditions without legal protection.

American voters are stuck electing Democrats who are more focused on the mass importation of poverty and improving the lives of people who are not authorized to live in the country. Why would those countries be incentivized to take care of their own citizens if they can dump them on America’s shores?

Why would their leaders spend the necessary resources to create safe communities for their citizens to live in? All they have to do is turn a blind eye to the huddled masses lumbering toward the borders, offloading their problems unto the backs of American taxpayers.

New York City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R), speaking with Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday, discussed a recent announcement by Mayor Bill de Blasio that 725,000 eligible illegal aliens can now enter the lottery for the few remaining spots in new homeless shelters.

 “Bill de Blasio, instead of helping homeless men, women and children, we have more than 60,000 homeless families in our shelter system tonight — instead of helping homeless veterans — instead of helping seniors who are living on a fixed income, he’s decided to help people who are in the country illegally and allow them to apply for the affordable housing lottery to get below-market rents for apartments that should be going to law abiding citizens and people who play by the rules. Those are the people who deserve those slots,” said Ulrich.

The Washington Examiner caught House Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski on video, in a rare moment of candor, telling constituents at a Tuesday event in New Jersey’s 7th district, “Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset? We don’t usually ask, but a lot of those workers are undocumented. There are just not a lot of kids who, sorry, from Montgomery High, who are going to be doing that full time. You guys are going into robotics, for goodness’ sake.”

He justified the importation of low wage labor with the distorted mantra that Americans don’t want these jobs.

“There are a lot of jobs in our community, that like it or not, for better or for worse, Americans are not willing to take,” said Malinowski, who immigrated to the U.S. from Poland when he was six years old.

 “I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal — most of them documented — but certainly some of them are not,” the Congressman argued.

Illegal immigration has now become one of the most serious concerns of Americans voting in the 2020 election. They are observing that migrants are abusing social welfare programs. If border crossings continue unabated at current levels, Americans will find themselves living in the same conditions illegals are fighting to escape, while Democratic leaders insulate themselves in the halls of power and behind mansion walls.
