Illegal ImmigrationPosted Monday, July 27, 2009, at 9:56 PM
What did Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?
Ask any person who is out of work or working for poverty wages how they feel about illegal immigrants working in the United States and you won't be able to print some of the answers.
The problem with illegal immigration is not new. The problem had to be addressed by President Hoover, President Truman and President Eisenhower.
Back during The Great Depression, President Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work.
Harry Truman deported over two million Illegal's after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans.
And then again in 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexican Nationals! The program was called 'Operation Wetback'. It was done so WWII and Korean Veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took 2 Years, but they deported them!
Now...My question is,,,if they could deport the illegal's immigrants back then - why can't they deport illegal immigrants today and make more room form American Citizens to be able to secure employment. Major corporations lobby to keep the illegal immigrant labor force so they can hold down labor cost and so they can exploit both the immigrants and the American labor force. Big business today looks at production labor as an expense and as such something to be eliminated. With twelve cents an hour labor available in China, why should they keep America workers and not exploit that market all in the search for more profits?
It doesn't matter if the President is a Democrat ( Truman ) or a Republican ( Eisenhower). All that matters is if the President has the guts to serve the American taxpaying citizen there could be some actions to protect American jobs.
