Today we read about thousands of Hispanics not showing up to work in Alabama nor allowing their children to attend school in an apparent protest over that states tough illegal immigration law (HB 56). It is estimated that most of those who participated in this protest were in fact “Illegal Immigrants”. We also heard today that the Obama Administration have announced their plan to suspend the deportation orders of 300,000 illegal aliens that have already been issued by a U.S. court of law. In addition to being allowed to stay in the country, each of these 300,000 illegal aliens will also be eligible for temporary work visas. All of this is happening in an atmosphere where we have over 14 million unemployed American citizens (21 million if you count the long term chronic unemployed). Alabama has seen a 480% increase in illegal immigrants between 2000 and 2010. Officials in Alabama estimate that as many as 160,000 illegal immigrants have moved into the state and that their presence has cost Alabama more than $300 million/year. Even worse, their presence in the work place has taken jobs away from U.S. citizens in Alabama. Alabama officials report that since enacting HB 56 a large number of illegal’s have left the state thus opening up jobs for American Citizens. They contend that the law is having its intended affect. However, the DOJ and other groups have filed a suit attempting to stop and remove HB 56. It would appear that Obama is more interested in securing the Hispanic Vote than allowing American Citizens to find jobs. The DOJ has sued Arizona and has started suit against South Carolina who has passed a similar law to Alabama. I think it’s clear where Obama’s loyalties lie and they are not with the American Citizens in Alabama, South Carolina and Arizona.
