Illegal Immigration: Affecting Your Wages?

This news report from a small town in Texas shows how illegal immigrants have pushed down wages and raised the cost of living for Americans. Workers in the meat packing industry in the U.S. now earn 35% less than they did in the 1970's.

Experts say that continuing waves of illegal workers, often with forged documents, have created a market where wages for American workers are severely at risk. In this investigation, Swift was hauled into court for allegedly deliberately hiring illegals over American workers in order to save money.

  1. Tired of illegal immigration ?
    Only those Senators & Congressmen willing to co-sponsot the SAVE Act should be given our vote.

    The Save Act forces all employers to verify social security numbers. It's an "interior enforcement" bill that this country needs.

    Get more details at NumbersUSA and send a free fax to your elected reps. asking them to co-sponsor this revolutionaty new bill. Thanks.
