Obama just stepped into it. With his campaign desperately needing to pander to try and pick up Hispanic votes, he gave amnesty to illegals who were brought to this country as children and who are under thirty. But the problems are just starting.
From the Washington Post:
President Obama has just opened a floodgate of opportunity for young illegal immigrants in the United States, but could it squeeze the aspirations of legal Americans in the process?
Across the nation Friday, immigrant advocates and Hispanic youth groups hailed Obama’s decision to offer legal status to some undocumented immigrants under 30 as a watershed in U.S. immigration history and a long-sought victory for ambitious youths denied a chance to realize the American dream.
“I thank God for this day. It has changed my whole life,” Jorge Acuna, 19, a college student in Silver Spring who came to the United States with his family as a child, told a cheering crowd outside the White House on Friday afternoon, minutes after Obama announced the new policy. Last spring, the community college student was nearly deported to his native Colombia. Now, under the amnesty, he will be able to pursue his degree in engineering.
But opponents of illegal immigration warned that the policy could create significant new competition for jobs and university slots at a time of nationwide recession and numerous states’ efforts to curb public spending.
“I see a tidal wave coming,” said Brad Botwin, president of Help Save Maryland, a group that opposes legalization for undocumented immigrants. “Half of our college graduates today can’t find jobs, and the unemployment rate for high-school-aged Americans is extremely high. This is unfair to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who are out there struggling to get ahead.”
The economy is tanking and Obama is bringing in almost a million people to compete with Americans for jobs.
Anyone want to take a guess what this is going to do to the unemployment rate in this nation?
It will probably drive it up high enough that even the Obama Regime cannot cook those numbers.
The real danger here with amnesty is the creation of a permanent under class. Employers hire illegals because they can pay them under the table, without having to cover taxes, insurance and other benefits.
Once the former illegals are now legal, they will have to be paid above the table. Suddenly a lot of employers are not going to be that interested in hiring these people.
What happens then?
That question is one that Obama will not answer. He is not even interested in the answer. He is only interested in doing anything he can do to get reelected.
