Mel Martinez to be "irritant" to get immigration "reform"; Gebe Martinez has no concern for U.S. workers
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
"We have got to come to an understanding” on immigration, Martinez implored recently at the National Council of La Raza's gala, where he and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) were honored for their work on behalf of Hispanics. “Comprehensive immigration reform has got to be back on the top of the agenda,” Martinez said. “It’s the right thing to do.” ...Though Obama has promised to reform the immigration system, he has not decided when, leaving Martinez to conclude the delay shows a “lack of direction or interest.” But clearly, the Republican senator is putting pressure on the Democratic White House because there is little hope of changing the minds of his own party members standing under the incredible shrinking Republican Party tent... "I don’t want to be too optimistic, but at the same time, I think there are [Republican] folks who understand the importance of this issue as a human rights issue as well as a political issue. I am sure many minds have not been changed as well, but I think it’s possible... I want to be a little bit of an irritant until someone at the White House decides this needs to be on the agenda,” Martinez said.
On the second page, Gebe Martinez shows that she doesn't mind if illegal aliens are able to get stimulus plan jobs:
The Center for Immigration Studies, which seeks to restrict legal immigration, recently used questionable methodology to conclude that undocumented immigrants will be filling 300,000 construction jobs under the stimulus law. The CIS message: Out of work? An illegal immigrant just took your tax-funded job. Be afraid... Immigrants’ rights and business groups argue there are still many jobs performed by immigrants that others will not touch, even in desperate times. Laid-off Microsoft computer engineers are not likely to seek work fixing roofs on high-rises or cleaning hotel toilets.
Gebe Martinez is just an ethno-centric hack, but we knew that already. The 300,000 number may be off, but it was just an estimate. And, those are construction jobs, not janitorial jobs. And, every one of those jobs that goes to an illegal alien is one that was taken from a U.S. citizen; it's a zero-sum game. Being concerned about that isn't simply an emotional response; it's putting American interests first, and that's obviously something Gebe Martinez has little interest in doing.
Gebe Martinez is such an illegal immigration-supporting hack that she's promoting something akin to a caste system, where those of a higher caste should be dissuaded from doing certain types of jobs even if they have to.
