NRCA, I believe, and am well studied to do so, supports the hiring of immigrants. They don’t cross the threshhold of saying illegal, but lets face it, thats whay they really mean.
Now, due to recent negative response to political subjects, let me reiterate my concerns while trying not to offend anyone. It would be equally beneficial to me for illegals to be made legal.
As I’ve said many times before, it is not racial reasons that motivate me. It is the belief that this should all be a level playing field.
Turning a blind eye allows somebody with nothing to lose and everything to gain to capitalize on an illegal situation. It promotes shady characters, so to speak.
If somebody is legally employable and I’m not risking my entire life to get them, it opens up competition for service, and as an American, I’m all for that. The best legal man for the job should get the job, at a salary comparable to the local market, given good community standing.
The illegal facet aside, I feel that all that seperates me from anyone is hard work, humility, knowledge, and communication. If there is no longer this uneven playing field though, your differences as a consumer can be as subtle as who is most impressive in an interview and investigative situation. Just like going for a job…
The current layout of the system renders me a victim of a socialist government, in my eyes. They want me to surrender my American heritage right of fair employment for the “well being” of the world and geopolitical aspirations. All the while, further differentiating the gap between the rich and the poor.
Let’s clear one thing up. I too would like to become rich. I would like to do so with a clean conscience. I’ve come off as attacking the immigrants, which was somewhat misguided, because the real problem is and always has been the guy in this to make a quick buck, and screw HONEST hard working people.
So, for the way I’ve come off about it, I apologize. But I will not apologize for recognizing a growing and true problem…
