Cup of STFU

posted in Cup of STFU, Immigration |

Now this is extreme, even for the media and the idjits who think that we really don’t have an “illegal immigration” problem. Take a look at this article to see what I mean. For those who hate clicking links..let me show you a few quotes from it. Here’s Micheal “can’t fill Rudy’s shoes” Bloomberg

“Although they broke the law by illegally crossing our borders … our city’s economy would be a shell of itself had they not, and it would collapse if they were deported,” he said. “The same holds true for the nation.”

Sounds pretty dire..the economy of NYC would be a shell if not for illegal immigrants. Now according to the article NYC has about 3 million immigrants with about 500,000 there illegally. So what Bloomberg is saying is that without these 500,000 cab drivers, hotel maids, and convenience store clerks the city’s economy would be a shell. WTF? Wow NYC must really be suffering from maximum employment so bad that it needs illegals to perform services for the city. Think again!

March 21, 2006, New York, New York – New York City’s unemployment rate fell to 5.9% in 2005, a notable improvement from the 2003 rate of 8.5%, according to a new report released today by the Community Service Society (CSS). But the report, Unemployment and Joblessness in New York City, 2005: Decline in Unemployment Rate Masks Areas of Continued Weakness (PDF), reveals that despite the lowest unemployment rate since 2000 the city’s job market is far from fully recovered from the recent recession.

but but the illegals do jobs that other American’s won’t do or are way over qualified to do. These are entry level, no college, very basic english understanding menial type jobs. Ok what about this then?

Many groups of New Yorkers continue to suffer recession level unemployment rates: teens, 16.9%; young adults, 11.2%; blacks, 8.7%; Hispanics, 7.0%, and people with less than a high school degree, 7.3%

So really, is what we have truly a situation where 500k deported illegal immigrants will crush the NYC economy? If that’s the case then New Yorkers need to impeach Bloomberg because it’s an economy built like a house of cards. What we really have here is a dog and pony show designed to try and build support for the Senate’s weak attempt at an immigration policy. The house of Representative’s bill is 100 times better AND will be gaining in popularity as more people learn about it. Oh and before anyone thinks I’m just hating on Bloomberg, this circus was ringmastered by PA’s own Arlen “magic bullet” Specter.

    Bloomberg needs to be impeached. Today’s Times article on the emails surrounding park permits at the time leading up to the RNC proves what we already knew: that Bloomberg is personally responsible for denying New Yorkers’ free speech and for imprisoning New York citizens to keep them quiet while Republicans visited. No, you say. This couldn’t be true -in my country? in this day and age? in America? Political prisoners in New York City? Please think about it. Then maybe you’ll want to do something about it.

    There are “political prisoners” in America (don’t know about NYC) but go and look up the Pendleton 8. I will make a point about the protests for the RNC, there were many many threats of violence and well let’s face it. The repub’s aren’t popular people at times and their opposition routinely resorts to violence in protest against them. Bloomberg is a bad mayor in many ways, but I respectfully disagree with the reason you gave.
