Take action now:

"Who is the Cheap Labor Lobby?"

FPM has a good roundup of those groups that support massive illegal immigration. Their list of the perps includes:
- Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates and the high-tech industry...
- The meat packing industry...
- Clothing manufacturers...
- Unions...
- The hotel and restaurant industry...
- The ultra-wealthy – both liberals and nominal conservatives...
- The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, led by Grover Norquist...
- The governors of certain rural, Midwestern states...
Regarding the last, see Vilsack in Iowa and Huckabee in Arkansas.

Of course, what they forgot is the Washington establishment, including Bush, most of Congress, and most of those in the permanent government.

They also discuss various libertarian economic myths, including this:
Cheap labor is not real capitalism, it is corporatism, for cheap labor is subsidized by the government, which ends up paying the health and welfare costs of these workers. All taxpayers bear the cost.

Not mentioned were the entire class of power greedy officials and their professoriate, who promote such nonsense as openness and diversity as values in themselves, and that immigrants can be subhumanized into a classification which is not capable of being blamed for anything they do wrong.Increase the numbers on net public subsidy via antimerit immigration on a huge scale, and the officials' share of the economy goes up and up, as does their power.

Also left off the list were various churches, various parachurch organizations, most free trade economists, various libertarians, many human rights groups, and a lot of unparanoid people.
