Obama has deliberately not enforced immigration laws and now it is coming back to bite him as young people come en masse from Latin America, aided by Mexico, which allows the pass through of Central Americans, so long as they don’t stick around Mexico. Obama, after promising amnesty, now says, “hey, it’s dangerous for your kids to come here.” Oh really. Well, Obama and the rest of America is learning that things are a little different down there. Adulthood doesn’t start at 21 or 25 or whenever Americans begin to stand up for themselves. It might be 13 or 15. Time to get to work. Lots of Latin immigrants have a fifth grade education or less. If you can hang drywall or mow a lawn, you can work and make a relatively good living in the US, even as an illegal.
Of course, we need no more poor people in this country, nor those whose kids and grandkids will likely be poor too. We need fewer workers, which would lead to more higher paying jobs. And this state of affairs is impossible to create with the wage pressure of an artificially expanding labor supply by people whose commitment to investment in human capital as societies and individuals, is nearly nil.
