Pat Buchanan on Republican attempts to appease the unappeasable axis of amnesty activists, lawyers, lobbyists, and politicians…

“Securing the border, that is not an option…that is an obligation, that is a duty of the President of the United States…”

Thomas Sowell destroys amnesty talking point that America “needs” illegal immigrants to pick crops: Economics vs. “Need”…

One of the most common arguments for allowing more immigration is that there is a “need” for foreign workers to do “jobs that Americans won’t do,” especially in agriculture.

In a market economy, when farmers are seeking more farm workers, the most obvious way to get them is to raise the wage rate until they attract enough people away from alternative occupations — or from unemployment.

With the higher labor costs that this would entail, the number of workers that farmers “need” would undoubtedly be less than what it would have been if there were more workers available at lower wage rates, such as immigrants from Mexico.
