A Trojan horse - There is a cause and effect related to illegal immigration that needs to be told. Free Trade is the Trojan horse for illegal immigration. The first question to ask is, why did these immigrants come to the United States?
They came to seek jobs. Then what happened to the Free Trade that was supposed to provide jobs in Mexico?
The massive migration of workers demonstrates that Free Trade has failed. The United States has moved more than 4,000 factories to Mexico to save the Mexican economy since 1956 including more than 2,000 that were moved since the NAFTA trade agreement was passed in 1993. Obviously, the exporting of our factories to Mexico did not work, and after getting NAFTA passed, President Clinton had to rush billions of dollars to Mexico to save the peso.
In the end, an impoverished, destitute working class was created in Mexico, and a working poor class was created in the United States, NAFTA, proved to be the Trojan horse behind it. Illegal immigration speeds up the race to the bottom for workers, and workers' dignity is crushed in both countries - while the Globalist Free Traders call for more of the same. Why would they claim an era of protectionism while hundreds of U.S. factories were being moved to Mexico. Apparently, definitions of Free Trade did not include making factories portable ready to be moved from place to place for the sake of cheaper labor.
Franklin Roosevelt said economic diseases are highly communicable. Today, they are an epidemic in more ways than one. President Bush has branded the term " Terrorism" to fit many different categories. Perhaps, he should include America in Terror right here in the USA as the de-industrialization of the USA goes on and on. The low unemployment rates are an insult to our intelligence especially when compared to the past when most jobs in the USA were full-time with full benefits.
The latest Wall Street Journal - NBC News poll is confirming this all now with nearly a two-to-one margin, Republican voters believe Free Trade is bad for the U.S. economy - the same should apply to Mexico as their workers come to America seeking economic survival even though they too report a low unemployment rate.
Many of the presidential candidates say we can not go back to protectionism. Apparently, they include the 4,000 factories moved to Mexico as protectionism and the fact that Trade Deficit has broken records for many years now. How can they talk about selling things abroad when the Trade Deficit has lasted for so many years. The real commodities of Free Trade are workers. Illegal immigration proves it.
