• Chicago: Illegal Alien Children Given Preference in Jobs, Internships

    In a preview of what amnesty holds in store for the rest of America’s middle class and lower income workers, Chicago is putting illegal immigrants in the job pool ahead of many citizen students who would also like to have the opportunity.

    In much the same way they or their parents were rewarded for violating American immigration law and given preference over those who lined up to immigrate legally, Chicago is offering internships, volunteer and job opportunities to illegal alien “dreamers.”

    In “justifying” the discrimination against American citizens, Mayor Emanuel said, “Chicago is a city that was built by immigrants and I am committed to ensuring that DREAMers have the same opportunities offered by the City to all of Chicago’s youth. We will open our doors to support talented young people who are committed to their education, building their job skills, and bettering their communities.”

    Those opportunities include 500 city internships, volunteer, and job opportunities on a year-round basis, as well as over 22,000 summer jobs, internships and training programs.

    Pro-amnesty congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said, “DREAMers and DACA recipients are assets that we need to nurture and develop like precious natural resources for the benefit of the entire community. They are an integral part of Chicago’s workforce of tomorrow. Once again, the City of Chicago and Mayor Rahm Emanuel are leading the way on the inclusion of our immigrant communities.”

    Once again Gutierrez is endorsing the equal treatment and opportunity for people illegally in the country as those afforded to American citizens, to the detriment of those same citizens.

    The announcement described a recruitment effort: “To maximize the availability and access to these opportunities for Chicago’s DREAMers, the Mayor’s Office of New Americans and the Department of Family and Support Services will lead a coordinated outreach campaign in targeted neighborhoods and schools with high concentrations of immigrant populations. These efforts will include distributing informational materials to immigrant students and families, hosting joint community events, and expanding marketing efforts through existing City programs.”

    Additionally, the Department of Family and Support Services will be involved in an outreach program to fill the available positions with illegal aliens. Department of Family and Support Services Commissioner Evelyn Diaz said, “Immigrant and undocumented students face a range of unique challenges and barriers to leveraging their skills. That is why DFSS will work with its public agency partners to inform students and families of these summer enrichment programs and internship opportunities and encourage DREAMers to apply.”

    In addition to offering the positions, the city is spending money to train their staff in how to provide preferential treatment for illegal aliens. That notice, by Department of Human Resources Commissioner Soo Choi read, “We are conducting tailored training for City staff to provide Chicago’s DREAMers with opportunities to excel outside the classroom and obtain valuable professional experience in City government.” Choi continued, “With this training, we can ensure that DHR and all City staff are well equipped to provide DREAMers with the information they need so they can continue contributing to this city.”

    The pandering officials act as if there is an unlimited supply of jobs. There is not. Every position that goes to an illegal is one that a citizen won’t have. Just as in the overall amnesty, every preferential act for an illegal creates a corresponding act of discrimination against the citizen who is being excluded.

    It is a prelude to what we will all see if the Democrats are successful in pushing amnesty on the adult population as well.
