    Study: Wages rose after immigration raids

    WASHINGTON, March 19 (UPI) -- Wages and employment increased for legal workers after raids on six Swift & Co. meat-packing plants in several U.S. states in 2006, a study indicated.

    Noting that the plants raided were back in production within five months, Jerry Kammer of the Center for Immigration Studies said there was "good evidence" that the number of U.S.-born workers increased, concluding that the plants "could operate without the presence of illegal workers," The Hill reported.

    The non-partisan center examined what happened after raids on Swift & Co. facilities in Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Texas and Utah, in which 1,300 undocumented workers were arrested. Another 400 workers without authorization to work in the United States were found through company screening.

    The study estimated about 23 percent of the plants' employees weren't authorized to work in the United States, the Washington publication said.

    Swift didn't provide information about how its workforce changed, Kammer said, adding that the meat-packer also recruits a large number of refugees who are legal immigrants.

    "At the four facilities for which we were able to obtain information, wages and bonuses rose on average 8 percent with the departure of illegal immigrants," Kammer said.

    Kammer said Swift used pay increases and signing bonuses to staff the plants after the raids.

    Employers don't want to pay higher (read "enough to live on") wages. We need to make hiring illegal aliens so expensive for them that paying a living wage to Americans will be cheaper by comparison.

    Businesses, Pirates of Wall Street, Elected Officials all should not be allowed to earn more than double of the average wage earner on the street.

    Why isn't state legislatures or state reps constructing bills that if the EMPLOYER HIRES ILLEGALS, it would be the EMPLOYER'S RESPONSIBILITY to (by way of illegal alien taxes) pay for the illegal's hospital costs/health care, illegals' childrens' education expenses, housing costs, etc... that should dishearten these employers...

    Unfortunately Napolitano halted all raids and other all enforcement measures according to FOX and the AP. Supposedly this Mexican government, drug cartel, Chamber of Commerce, union, big labor and UN owned waste of taxpayer dollars and oxygen government will only go after employers. You can't build a case against them unless you pursue illegal aliens using stolen identities to illegally obtain jobs and other services using information obtained from tips by coworkers and supervisors alleging improprieties by illegal aliens. This government of, by and for illegal alien murderers, rapists, child molesters, MS-13 gang bangers, identity thieves and other criminals has effectively opened the border through their back door amnesty agenda by allowing them to use stolen identities to illegally work without fear of prosecution and deportation. This will send a dangerous signal to the rest of the world that they don't give a damn about The Constitution, the rule of law, our borders and sovereignty, resulting in a flood of illegal immigration across the wide open border which Obama has absolutely no intention of securing further taxing our health care, welfare, food, land, water, energy and other LIMITED resources. Liberals, Socialists and Marxists as Obama subscribe to the philosophy of reward without consequence for actions. This dirty, no good, corrupt Chicago mob run administration employed this underhanded maneuver because they knew they couldn't persuade honest, hard working and law abiding Americans to ignore our laws, borders and sovereignty by allowing those to stay who have shown no respect for our laws, borders and sovereignty and use stolen identities. Americans are having a tough time finding employment in this lousy economy but Obama's absolutely asinine, insane, inane and ludicrous policies have made their jobs infinitely tougher. Where's your so called concern and compassion for Americans victimized by identity theft and other crimes and those unable to obtain jobs taken by those those with no legal right to be in this country? For this so called administration to have any compassion or concern for suffering and struggling Americans would require a conscience which unfortunately they don't have...........
    There is no freedom without the law. Remember our veterans whose sacrifices allow us to live in freedom.

    The entire report is available at the website of the Center for Immigration Studies, http://cis.org , and can be downloaded in pdf.

    There are several other articles about the report available on CIS's "Morning News" today (of 3/19/09) at http://www.cis.org which are excellent to print and forward to elected officials.
