BUCHANAN SEEKING TO FILL DOBBS' VOID

Rate this Entry
I'll give credit to Pat Buchanan. He was an anti before it became fashionable a few years ago and is still an anti even after the rest of the country has shifted back to the pro-immigration side. Now that Lou Dobbs has had a late in life conversion :-) to being pro-immigration, is Buchanan seeking to replace Dobbs as the darling of the crazies? Seems so and my friend Chuck Kuck at AILA has some choice words for Mr. Buchanan.

    'one less foreigner means one more job for American'

    I notice Kuck cites Wadhwa and the argument is based on patent-filers but that's a narrow argument for certain immigrants. The vast majority of immigrant labor is not highly educated in technological economic sectors. In most jobs, they are essentially fungible employees and in this stalled economy we have substantially more of them than jobs to go around. Further, no one is projecting a sudden employment rebound, but a rather jobless recovery which could take many years to reach the former employment level.
    Based on the comments on the editorial, most people don't think it's a crazy idea that Americans get first dibs on jobs in the U.S. Some people see it entirely from the employer's point of view and are neutral over whether a job goes to an American or a foreign national. Looking out for the American is viewed as 'protectionism', but such an ideology is shortsighted. Increasing the lower skilled labor supply with foreign labor when employment is shrinking or static creates American economic losers and these people already have a hard enough time even when they get all the work they want. Their problems are our problems which we as a society have to deal with. Ruben Navarette mocks their plight but others believe there is a moral obligation not to make their situation worse. Research shows that unemployment is devastating on many levels, social as well as economic. The high immigration side likes to tout low unemployment figures as an imperative for immigration so now that it is high shouldn't they at least adjust their tune? They can make 'padded cell' jokes about Buchanan but I bet his idea of tying the immigration level to the employment rate, even a moratorium, would poll extremely well.

    Jack, the no so highly educated immigrants were coming to this country in droves (4 times compared to what it is today) in 1880-1921. More people means more economic activity and higher growth levels, which means lower unemployment. Look at unemployment stats for those years - they tell a very convincing story.

    Jack and others:

    No argument from me as long as we exchange..exchange the three to four million Americans living abroad in places such as Singapore stealing jobs from foreigners for the foreigners working here who are stealing jobs from Americans...it is a fair exchange. Let us begin by exchanging this American receptionist in this picture (Johanna Berry) working in a Singapore clinic for a Singaporean receptionist working at the University of Hawaii clinic..it is a fair deal.

    If it is a fair exchange I have no problem with either Jack or Mr. Pat Buchanan..of course these clowns have little or nothing to say about Americans stealing jobs abroad! Americans especially white folks love their privilege and always want a one way street!

    If you want to go a little bit further, I will request the American Nursing Union to exchange the two American nurses at the Singapore clinic, Ms. Brown and Ms. Dunlup for two Singapore nurses or even two Filipina nurses working in this country..no problem with me!

    Speaking of nurses. There is still a looming shortage w/c passage of health care reform will aggravate. Couple that with economic recovery and old nurses finally retiring once they realize that the big rise in stocks since March 2009 may be as good as it gets and w/c they might choose to get out before a major correction sets in very soon.


    Florida and Ohio are just the few States that will be hit hard.
