Great news: Unemployment’s so high that illegal aliens are going back to Mexico to find work

by editor on August 3, 2011

In our never-ending search for the silver lining, we’ve discovered a positive side to the high unemployment that’s plaguing the nation – illegal aliens are returning to Mexico in record numbers.


Illegal aliens are now going in the opposite direction

The Sacramento Bee has the story:

Mexico’s unemployment rate is now 4.9 percent, compared with 9.4 percent joblessness in the United States.

An estimated 300,000 undocumented immigrants have left California since 2008, though the remaining 2.6 million still make up 7 percent of the population and 9 percent of the labor force, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.

… The best-paid jobs for undocumented migrants are in the building industry, “and because of the severe crisis in the construction business here, their first response has been to move into the service industry,” González Gutiérrez said. “But that has its limits. Then, they move to other areas in the U.S. to find better jobs — or back to Mexico.”

If this trend continues, how long will it be before Americans start sneaking across the border in search of jobs in Mexico?

Deport a man, and he will be gone for a day.
Make a man want to leave, and he will be gone for a lifetime.

But, but, but,…………I thought that illegals were only doing the jobs Americans wouldn’t do, like picking lettuce and cleaning toilets. Nonsense, and I’ve been saying it all along. Once the people that operate heavy equipment finish building the place to put the house, the illegals take over and build the house. That’s why houses built in the last 30 years or so are built so badly.

Hey now I clean three toilets three times a week for no pay…. stay at home mom. At least they are getting paid. The wetback house down the street will soon have 21 people living in 800 square feet.. the 17 yr old is pregnant with her third anchor baby! And they just bought a brand new expedition, we drive 10 and 11 yr old paid off vehicles and they can buy a new one.. medicare, free school supplies, coats and no taxes… Still waiting for ICE to drop in and check on them hasn’t happened yet even though we all call them at least once a month.

It’s gonna take more than 300,000 or so illegals to leave Kalifornia before I will ever go back! The remaining 2.6 million and the commies that run the state will have to leave as well!

If we can figure a way to make that happen, I’ll be the one welcoming you at the border.

Illegals leaving the United States is bad news for Democrats, they’re losing a reliable voting bloc. Wait…maybe they can use absentee ballots.

I’m sure the California Registrar of Voters would show no hesitation at all to send a truckload of absentee ballots across an international border. As long as it isn’t to a bunch of those nasty military type people.

Now what are they going to do when they find that the jobs in Mexico have been taken by Guatemalans?

I wonder if they have to sneak back to Mexico? Now that they’re in the USA, they might be considered illegal aliens in Mexico, and be turned away at the border!
Anyone have a tractor-trailer, and would be willing to smuggle a few truckloads of illegals back home?

Do they have an unemployment program for the coyotes? Or do they just turn to smuggling more drugs for the cartels?

Oh, I wasn’t going to do it, I’m just sayin’. You should have seen the Border Patrol watching us like hawks when we were backing our tanker trucks up to the border on I-5 a couple months ago. If anyone snuck into that tank before we filled it with concrete slurry, they would definitely earn the name wetback.

Done! One thing off the conservative list. Now if you could just find a way to make the gays and blacks leave… you would be MONEY!

So you’re grouping gay people and black people with people who have criminally entered into another country?

Precisely what type of Governor has Massachusetts got, who spends more time playing up to the illegal alien occupation of his state, then dealing with his jobless rate. Massachusetts doesn’t have the convenience of a hook-up to the ICE data bases, to query if foreign nationals are in this country lawfully. Liberal leaning Gov. Deval Patrick seems to have forgotten who is supposing to protecting–his residents. He has issued his own policy that criminal aliens or any illegal aliens in his state cannot be touched. He refused to implement the “Secure Communities” program to fingerprint criminal aliens. Instead he now has this road mayhem, when an illegal alien who allegedly (of course we must be politically correct, as directed by the Leftist zealots) killed a 23-year-old Massachusetts man in a hit-and-run accident Saturday. This is not an isolated incident as DUI (Drunk while intoxicated), hit and runs seems to be wide-spread across the country. Americans must throw out the entire pro-illegal alien activist Governors, Mayors, police chiefs and city Supervisors.

Nicolas D. Guaman, 34, of Milford, Mass, was arrested Saturday after his vehicle struck Matthew J. Denice, who was on a motorcycle, as reported by police. Guaman’s pickup truck had purportedly dragged Denice’s body a quarter-mile, the media reports. As always opponents of the “Secure Communities” program like to paint a mainly sympathetic picture of the criminals as “victims” in any kind of immigration enforcement cause. Same situation goes for E-Verify that would reduce illegal aliens, by rejecting them from jobs, which should be flowing to citizens and permanent resident. This is why unlike the Liberal extremists Democrats and even the Republican establishment core, have failed the American people dismally or intentionally in not enforcing laws already on the books. If you want to be on the ground-floor of the bloodbath that is an everyday occurrence in our nation you will find it at” American Patrol”, website. You can read the less visible news reports, that the Liberal oriented press doesn’t want you to view.

Only Alabama, Georgia and Arizona so far have had the guts to stand against the Dept of In-Justice; as we speak being taken to the judicial wall, to protect their states from the fiscal responsibility of unfunded mandates for supporting the illegal alien incursions. Americans must look for a presidential candidate, who has a exemplary grade on immigration and Rick Perry has a very poor record, as he is part of the Republican establishment. Go to “NumbersUSA” for the immigration grades of potential hopefuls?

Other areas of expertise on illegal alien statistics can be found at “NumbersUSA & the Federation of American Immigration Reform.” Another web site to be learn about the corruption in Washington D.C. and other states is “Judicial Watch” They are the opposite end of the spectrum of the communist inspired ACLU. Guaman’s first encounter with the law, was never reported to ICE, as the state is sympathetic to illegal aliens, especially Governor Patrick. On Guaman’s record are several previous citations for driving without a license and was charged in 2008 with breaking and entering and assaulting a cop in connection with a home invasion, and served probation but remained free. Served Probation? How come he wasn’t handed over to ICE and deported, which would have saved the life of Mr. Denice. This is what the Senate and House of Representative has handed us over thirty years, then trying to propose another mass amnesty. I don’t think so, nor does the TEA PARTY who is determined to stop any more Immigration Reform ideologies. No Sanctuary Cities or States like California, Nevada and Washington State. These States are under a tremendous financial strain, but the erratic Leftists will have none of it, overriding any sensible policies.

Under a conservative TEA PARTY leadership there will be no dream Acts, No Sanctuary City ordinances, no more welfare or payments for using the 14th Amendment to get a foot-hold for a green card by conceiving a baby here intentionally. Only the TEA PARTY will strictly observe the founders words has set down in the U.S. Constitution. The only immigrants to be welcomed in our sovereign nation are the highly skilled, with academic credentials. Our jails and prison system is full of criminals, from different corners of the world and like the welfare programs, the food stamps, low income housing the taxpayer foots the bill. Last year, the expenditure for foreign nationals residing in the United States was 113 Billion dollars, but climbing nationwide. Currently, there is more credence in a population number of 20 million plus foreign nationals in this country, then the Liberal media and open border activist offering their under-count. California has the heftiest burden caused by the Liberals sitting in Sacramento, then they would not be adding another $21.Billion annually and then Carson City, Nevada $1Billion dollars annually. Consider furnishing your incoherent Representatives to eradicate this plague, that will not leave until the 1986 immigration law is rigorously enforced.
The TEA PARTY doesn’t discriminate against any persons color or religion, as long their immigration status is lawful? JOHN THE TEA PARTY TO SAVE AMERICA FROM THE LEFTIST EXTREMIST TAKEOVER.

What a bunch of ignorant, uneducated, unaware and small minded bigots most of you are! Its a damn shame you’re not the ones leaving the country. There’s reasons why this country is falling, and ignorance, unearned greed/credit, and an unfounded sense of entitlement are the top three! All but one of the comments on here represents the writer as having one of these ‘values’. What a shame:(

The pay in Mexico is so low that it makes little difference whether one is employed or not.
Here is one to think about: Florida and probably many other states as well still rent out convicts to pick crops and the like. If we halted convict labor and ran the illegals back across the border how much would we have to pay Americans to work the fields? Our policy is to cause poverty deliberately so that labor can be affordable. So why would the poor not demand benefits and welfare. The deck is stacked against them so what does morality mean to them?
