04/26/10 – A Washington D.C. Insider Explains Harry Reid`s Amnesty Strategy



From:

Bob
Gillespie (
e-mail
him)


My local
Sacramento Bee
,


well
known to VDARE.COM

readers as an unqualified lover of illegal immigrants,
recently published a story about declining sales tax
revenues in surrounding counties. (
Sales
Tax Revenues Plummet in in Sacramento Region
,
by Loretta Kalb,
Sacramento Bee
, April 14, 2010)


While much of the reason is obviously less spending in



California`s distressed economy
,
reporter Kalb (
e-mail
her) omitted key facts.


Millions of illegal aliens in the


San
Joaquin Valley

work under the table and pay no tax on their wages.
Those who earn a paycheck do not spend it in California
(which would generate more sales tax) but instead send
it back to Mexico—
remittances.

And
because they are illegal aliens, they are treated like a
privileged class and still receive


free
medical care
,
welfare and a host of other services on which they pay
no tax.



Gillespie lives in Yolo County, near Sacramento.
