Former Officer Says LAPD Hiring Now Diversity-Driven At
Expense Of Catching Criminals; etc.
Last month the
Houston Chronicle business section published
sob story about the reduced level of
remittances from illegal aliens to Mexico.
[Less Cash Flows Home, by Jenalia Moreno,
Houston Chronicle, August 19, 2007]
home construction slowing, undocumented workers are
having a harder time earning what they need for
themselves—and what they send to family members."
"Construction has slowed ... Illegal immigrants, in
particular, are bearing the brunt of the slowdown,
losing their jobs painting, laying tile and building
roofs for new homes, economists said. ..."
percentage of Mexican migrants sending money home
fell to 64 percent in the first half of 2007, down
from 71 percent last year. ...
Hooper, chief economist of Deutsche Bank
the Deutsche Bank has been
critical of what it calls the U.S. immigration
"restrictionist movement" and mentioned VDARE.COM by
name in one of its reports. Read James Fulford`s
estimates that in the past year, 500,000
undocumented Hispanic workers have lost their jobs
in construction. Still 1.4 million have been able
to hold onto their jobs. ...
Adam Aschman, a project developer with the
Greater Houston Builders Association,
[estimates] immigrants make up 70 percent of the
area`s residential construction work force".
Hearts and flowers. Think, Mexico is "home" to
the Chronicle. Isn`t it the Houston paper?
Predictably, the Chronicle doesn`t use the
correct term illegal aliens. Instead they are: "migrants"
or "undocumented workers".
How does the Deutsche Bank derive its estimates? Does
it lend money to contractors it knows to hire illegal
Imagine the racism of people letting the concerns of "undocumented
workers" have priority over U.S. citizens by
implying that Americans should be laid off first.
Employers who are part of the Greater Houston Builders
groups like it should be sued for race discrimination.
