Some great comments and excerpts

From Trump Immigration Crackdown Leads to Higher Construction Wages:

Jeff Flake, Paul Ryan, Lindsay Graham, etc.

Why do you hate American workers?
Greed!!!! They get more money under the table if the globalists make more profits!! It’s all about money/bribes/payoffs
It’s not under the table. It’s out in the open and it comes in the form of campaign donations and donations to friendly PACs and SuperPACs. The people who benefit from a large labor pool are the ones who buy labor – those wealthy enough to employ large numbers of people and who don’t want to pay much for that labor. Those same people make massive donations to candidates who help them maintain their businesses in a lucrative fashion, meaning politicians who help them keep labor costs down.

The vast majority of political contributions in this country come from only about 400 of the wealthiest families in the country. It is these people and their interests which are represented in Washington DC, not yours.

To MAGA, you need term limits and total transparency of the electoral process. You need a shorter electoral process (which is less costly, undermining the influence of the extremely wealthy), and you need a balanced budget amendment to cut down on the pork which enables so much of the rampant crony capitalism that benefits theses same donors.

As for the illegals, you solve this problem by siccing lawyers on the employers who hire/exploit illegals. DoJ needs to start prosecuting. We need to see white collars making perp walks far more often.
True. I own a small construction firm. We have employees and we hire subcontractors and other temporary employees. I refuse to hire people here illegally. Simply put, I will not put an employee in a working position I would not want one of my own adult or teen children in. There are a lot of contractors out there like me, and we have to bid against the racist firms who use the slave labor of illegals, while claiming to “help them.” People who want illegal workers in America do so because they do not want to pay fair wages and benefits, yet would never let their own kids work in such positions. They are Racists, pure and simple.

From California Bans ICE Agents from State Labor Offices to Protect illegal Workers:

The citizenry of California never voted for sanctuary status. The crooked mayors should be recalled. Collect signatures to forbid the state from sanctuary status and put it on the ballot. Then what will Jerry Brown say?
“Despite ICE’s denials, Carl Soto, an organizer for illegal aliens’ rights at the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, told the Independent that the rumors of ICE enforcement were discouraging workers from filing claims of abuse against employers.” (Breitbart)

I think it’s the fact that they are working illegally–and KNOW it–that is preventing these workers from filing claims against abusive employers. At the very least they would be briefly detained and probably lose their jobs, however unpleasant working conditions may be. I doubt any of them would come forward.

So, what Carl Soto, Julie Su, David Chiu and Tom Torlasko et. al are doing is cleverly blaming the fear and degradation illegal workers are experiencing on the federal government’s attempt to enforce immigration laws.

Yet it is the policies of their OWN overlords, with the blessings of the CA Chamber of Commerce, that deliberately creates this unprotected underclass of virtual slaves. Can’t blame that on the Trump Administration, but nice try, California!
State officials are publically and blatantly refusing to enforce federal immigration laws.
Why have they not been arrested, charged, fined, and jailed?
Sessions, where are you?
Are you afraid to start arresting these lawbreakers? You know their names and where they live and work.
Harboring FUGITIVES from the Law is illegal!
No one needs a warrant to enter a public building, especially a law enforcement agent. AG Sessions needs to have the ICE agents go in and arrest every company manager that has an illegal immigrant working there. Assemble a massive task force and time the arrests such that they will be caught off-guard. It is time to enforce our immigration laws and imprison those people that violate them. Julie SU should be arrested and prosecuted for conspiracy to violate federal laws.
AG: Is this not sedition? I added emphasis:

§2384. Seditious conspiracy
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, OR BY FORCE TO PREVENT, HINDER, OR DELAY THE EXECUTION OF ANY LAW OF THE UNITED STATES, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; July 24, 1956, ch. 678, §1, 70 Stat. 623; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, §330016(1)(N), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)
Cali’s situation is unfortunate. I saw the cali votes and was staggered by the numbers, huge, really huge. I get that nearly the entire state was red, with blue population centers dominating. I saw that, too. But, what the hell is going on in that state that the whacked out liberals outnumber the conservatives by such a huge margin. Are the illegals voting illegally and being protected? Is it just liberal indoctrination? Conservatives are usually outnumbered in the cities because they are conservative, and liberals are loud and proud. I blame the numbers here on the conservatives in the state not being more vocal and for not making the alternative view more well known.

From Chamber of Commerce Official Unwittingly Tells the Truth About H-2Bs:

Speaking about summer jobs in Maine, at a time when no additional H-2B foreign workers are available, the executive director of a Maine Chamber of Commerce is quoted as saying:

The shortage is so acute … other companies have gone so far as to offer higher wages to entice locals. (Emphasis added.)

Without being aware of it, the Chamber executive was stating what to some critics is obvious: The presence of H-2B workers not only deprives U.S. workers of jobs, it drives down wages. (H-2B workers are ostensibly unskilled nonimmigrant aliens who have non-agricultural jobs.)
