Arrival of aliens ousts U.S. workers

By Jerry Seper THE WASHINGTON TIMES April 10, 2006

An Alabama employment agency that sent 70 laborers and construction workers to job sites in that state in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina says the men were sent home after just two weeks on the job by employers who told them "the Mexicans had arrived" and were willing to work for less. Linda Swope, who operates Complete Employment Services Inc. in Mobile, Ala., told The Washington Times last week that the workers — whom she described as U.S. citizens, residents of Alabama and predominantly black — had been "urgently requested" by contractors hired to rebuild and clear devastated areas of the state, but were told to leave three job sites when the foreign workers showed up.

Laura Ingraham interviewed the owner of this employment agency this morning on The Laura Ingraham Show. The owner stated some of these men were so stunned and disappointed they broke down crying, as did she.

I thought these were jobs nobody in the United States would do? So American citizens get fired so that illegal’s can have their jobs at less than the $10 an hour the Americans were making.

The Democratic party has been stuningly quiet about these kinds of outrages. The Black Caucus in Congress has been ignorantly quiet about this outrage. It is only a matter of time until the average Black in the United States finally awakens from their Rip VanWinkle-like somnambulism to begin the political backlash against the something for nothing Democrats that’s is decades overdue.

I just hope a race war between Blacks and Mexicans, and others doesn’t break out before then. It has already started in the Califronia prison system. I don’t suppose it will be long until it spills into the outside community.

Inside the Jail Wars

The Poor Peoples March in Washington D.C. in 1968 was the highpoint of ethnic co-operation during that time.

Blacks and Latinos enjoyed the political honeymoon of the era. Neither wanted to admit that the serious political and cultural differences between them could crack the facade of unity. But the last decade has presented a new reality.

Through massive immigration and higher birth rates, the Latino population has soared. Latinos have displaced blacks as the largest non-white minority in America. Latinos demand that political and social issues no longer be framed solely in black and white.

The clash has been especially fierce on three hot button issues: immigration and jobs, political representation, and street turf control.

When these Race Wars begin do I get to say I told you so?
