You cannot make this up folks. Obama’s policy gives legal status and three-year work permits to nearly half of the estimated 12 million undocumented residents in the U.S. But the real killer is the fact that firms will save $3,000 for each illegal they hire over an American citizen. Why? Because technically the illegal immigrants will not be eligible for public benefits (but if you believe they won’t get food stamps, earned income tax credits and FREE medical care at any emergency room they walk into, I want some of whatever you are smoking!), sooooo -employers will not have to pay a penalty for not providing health insurance to these people giving them a huge leg-up in jobs over Americans.
Why is it that it always sucks to be an American citizen these days under Obama’s rules and actions. This is upside down and inside out. But Mr. Obama is sticking to his guns:
“Immigrants are good for the economy. We keep on hearing that they’re bad, but a report by my Council of Economic Advisers put out last week shows how the actions we’re taking will grow our economy for everybody.”
