Bad as the Amnesty bill is for high-skilled workers, it is a disaster for low-skilled U.S. workers because the big majority of new immigrants will be low-skilled. The bill will swallow up opportunities for our own citizens to get jobs, and it will depress the wages of both U.S. citizens and immigrants. Granting amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens will, of course, act as a magnet for future illegals coming across our border, as well as substantially increase the legal immigrants coming in through the family unification process. Estimates are that the Amnesty bill will bring in 33 million immigrants over the next 10 years.
The biggest victims demographically will be African Americans. Legal and illegal immigration over the last several decades accounts for 40% of the big decline in African-American employment rates, according to evidence produced by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. The Amnesty bill will punish black Americans to benefit foreigners and tech company profits.
