“Please join us at 6 p.m. ET and again at 8 p.m. ET for a “Lou Dobbs Tonight” special report: “Broken Borders.” We’ll be live in Hazleton, Pennsylvania for a town hall meeting to discuss the issue of illegal immigration. Our guests will include: Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta, President of the National Border Patrol Council, T.J. Bonner, President and General Counsel of MALDEF, John Trasvina and National Executive Director of LULAC, Brent Wilkes.”
Lou Dobbs pointed out wages have been stagnant for over 30 years. In fact, men’s median wages are lower than in 1973. Women’s median wages are below men’s today, so they are less than men’s were in 1973. Black’s median wages are lower than all men today, so they are less than men’s median wages in 1973. The same applies to Hispanics.
Lou Dobbs is a hero for the American worker whose wages are held down by very wealthy Senators like John McCain and Ted Kennedy, as well as moderately wealthy senators like John Warner. These Senators want wages below the 1973 levels. At a certain point, their repetition of the same votes with the same outcome, low wages for Americans, is their intention. The trier of fact, the voters, have enough information to conclude that these long term Senators like Kennedy, McCain and Warner are really anti-worker and anti-American.
These Senators know that if immigration continues, wages stay down. They know that low wages mean high stock profits. They know high stock profits mean high stock prices. They own stocks, not workers. Once the Senators lost the right to own workers after the 1964 civil rights act, they decided they would rebel with the 1965 Immigration Act to keep American workers from making any higher wages.
Lou Dobbs pointed out the elites in the US and Mexico are behind keeping wages down for American workers in the US. Lou Dobbs pointed out that illegals work and dominate construction work and that this industry has seen wages go down for the last 4 years, even during a housing boom.
Lou had an expert on social security. The true cost of amnesty will be extremely high on Social Security. 2.5 to 3 trillion is the cost in Social Security alone for 12 million estimated amnesties. If its 24 million, it would be 5 to 6 trillion. Congress has no clue in the world and doesn’t care what it costs.
Expert: low skill immigrants take more in benefits than they pay in taxes in every stage of their career.
==Mayor Lou Barletta national hero
Mayor Lou Barletta is a national hero. Why don’t politicians wake up and realize, that Americans want no amnesty for illegal immigration, no guest workers, and a pause to legal immigration, including students, until men’s wages are twice the level in 1973, and women and black’s earn the same as men.
Mens median wages peaked in 1973. See census publication p60-231.pdf graph around page 18.

In 2005, 51 percent of women said they were living without a spouse, … preparing to live longer parts of their lives alone or with nonmarried partners. end quote. By SAM ROBERTS. Because men’s earnings are low, 51 percent of women live without a spouse. This is caused by Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration Act.
“Numbers Drop for the Married With Children
Institution Becoming The Choice of the Educated, Affluent”

PORTLAND, Ore. — Punctuating a fundamental change in American family life, married couples with children now occupy fewer than one in every four households — a share that has been slashed in half since 1960 and is the lowest ever recorded by the census.
As marriage with children becomes an exception rather than the norm, social scientists say it is also becoming the self-selected province of the college-educated and the affluent.
“The culture is shifting, and marriage has almost become a luxury item, one that only the well educated and well paid are interested in,” said Isabel V. Sawhill, an expert on marriage and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
Many demographers peg the rise of a class-based marriage gap to the erosion since 1970 of the broad-based economic prosperity that followed World War II. end quote
The 1965 Immigration Act caused this. Men’s median wages are down from 1973. Search p60-229.pdf and go to page 14 on census.gov. 51 percent of women live alone. This is because men don’t make enough.Female fertility is then below replacement.
quote from a comment at WaPo (before Old Atlantic was banned from commenting at WaPo) *Mens median wages peaked in 1973. See p60-231.pdf a publication of the census at census.gov. Search on p60-231.pdf is enough.* What OldAtlantic never mentions is wages of women have rising considerably and more than made up for the drop in the wages of men. These trends have very little to illegal immigration. end quote quote
Until recently, economists rarely mentioned the I-word when explaining the income distribution. The consensus among most academics was that the primary cause of increased inequality was “skill-biased technical change” (SBTC)—i.e., increased economic rewards to educated, technically savvy workers.
In a word, SBTC compensation was based on merit. How quaint!
Northwestern University economists Ian Dew-Becker and Robert J. Gordon broke from the group naiveté in a paper published last year:
“If SBTC had been a major source of the rise in inequality, then we should have observed an increase in relative wages of those most directly skilled in the development and use of computers. Yet in the 1989-97 period….total real compensation of CEOs increased by 100 percent, while those in occupations related to math and computer science increased only 4.8 percent and engineers decreased by 1.4 percent.” [Where did the Productivity Growth Go?

Also, women and blacks make less than men today. That means they make less than en made in 1973.

quote A comprehensive study of hate crimes in Los Angeles County released by the University of Hawaii in 2000 concluded that while the vast majority of hate crimes nationwide are not committed by members of organized groups, Los Angeles County is a different story. Researchers found that in areas with high concentrations, or “clusters,” of hate crimes, the perpetrators were typically members of Latino street gangs who were purposely targeting blacks.
Furthermore, the study found, “There is strong evidence of race-bias hate crimes among gangs in which the major motive is not the defense of territorial boundaries against other gangs, but hatred toward a group defined by racial identification, regardless of any gang-related territorial threat.”
Six years later, the racist terror campaign continues. end quote
