THIS LOCAL NEWSCAST Shows That Arizona's Enforcement Efforts Put Americans Back To Work

But Republican Leaders In Every Other State Are Pushing The Utah Law That Keeps Jobs In The Hands Of Illegal Aliens

Friends, the battle in every state capitol today is over whether to go with the Republican-dominated Utah solution that keeps unemployed Americans from having the jobs illegal aliens hold . . .

. . . or to go with the Republican-dominated Arizona solution that opens those jobs up for unemployed Americans to have.


I don't think I've ever seen a newscast that so resoundingly proves what U.S. House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith constantly insists -- that enforcing immigration laws is one of the best jobs programs the government can run.

ACTION -- Watch the video here (and join the discussion below it):

Channel 10 of Phoenix reported the incredible benefit to unemployed Americans when Sheriff Joe Arpaio raided a bunch of Pei Wei Asian Diners and led most of the workers there out in handcuffs because they were illegal aliens.

Watch it and look at the kind of Americans who lined up to take the jobs the illegal aliens vacated. You may be shocked; you will certainly be heartened.

Remember that it costs you nothing to send a NumbersUSA fax over the internet.


This is a case study of what happens when you remove illegal aliens from their jobs.

First, Pei Wei had to close its doors because it didn't have enough legal workers left.

Second, Pei Wei immediately started recruiting workers from among legal residents.

Finally, and triumphantly, as this newscast video so well shows, unemployed Americans created long lines to take the jobs.

How many times have you heard politicians, academic sophists and too many journalists facilely say that illegal aliens are just doing jobs Americans won't do? How many times have you heard that from a friend, co-worker or relative?

And how many times have you heard them specifically say that Americans are not going to lower themselves to wash the dishes in the restaurants you frequent?

Well, this video shows all kinds of people willing to wash dishes for $8 an hour. You'll see Latino Americans say they are willing to do so. You'll see White Americans willing to do so. Young. Middle aged. One with a masters degree.

"I'm desperate," a young woman says. A middle-aged woman says if she were younger she would look for yard work but is happy to wash dishes. "A job is a job," says Vince Flores, who refuses to be embarrassed about wanting a job that the elites of America sneer at.

Watch this video and renew your faith in the American people and their will to roll up their sleeves and do a job.

But in Utah, the Republican-led government has just decided that it is better to keep those kinds of Americans unemployed and keep the jobs in the hands of illegal aliens.

Across America, corporate American lobbyists are pushing the "Utah Compact" as the "compassionate" way to deal with immigration.

Yeah, right, compassionate to business owners who want to stiff unemployed Americans by hiring cheap illegal foreign labor.

Indiana and many other states are currently under great pressure by these Utah Compact Republicans to turn away from the compassionate immigration policies of Arizona and adopt Utah's meanspirited approach to unemployed Americans.

Wouldn't it be great in your own community to see lines of Americans like those seen in this Phoenix video, filled with hope because businesses aren't allowed to hire illegal aliens?

Don't forget to send your faxes to your state legislators. https://www.numbersusa.com/hub?action=r ... 9&ID=12812


P.S. Wouldn't it be nice if all of your friends and relatives saw this video, too? It just might change their whole perspective on whether Americans really are too lazy to work tough jobs (as the immigration expansionists argue).

Please forward this email to others and give a salute to all Americans and legal immigrants in this country who desperately want a job.
