The increasing number of immigrants entering the U.S. has been sanction by Washington D.C. to satisfy the growing demand from corporate America for cheap labor; and the failure of U.S. policy has been a setback for all Americans on both sides of the border.
Immigration Setback Blacks, Poor Whites
Stewart A. Alexander
California Lieutenant Governor
Peace and Freedom Party
The issues involving immigration have been placed on the front burner of American politics during this 2006 election year; however U.S. policy has been a major factor creating a rapid flood of immigration. Poor Whites and Blacks have been mostly affected by the massive flow of immigrants across the U.S. and Mexico border and the flood of immigration has also reached Middle Class Americans.
The problems associated with immigration go back almost 400 years in America and it is firmly tied to cheap labor. The U.S. was built on cheap labor and immigration beginning with poor Whites from Europe in the 1600’s and for a short time Native American Indians.
However America thrived on Black slavery for almost 250 years and eventually on the cheap labor of Black Americans for over 65 years into the 20th Century. Eventually the cost of living surpassed the low income of Blacks and poor Whites and that was the beginning of a new search for cheap labor. As a nation corporate America and Washington D.C. had to look no further than south of our border.
The demand to drive corporate profits in America and the world has been done on the backs of cheap labor; Blacks and poor Whites have been sent to the back of the line for low paying, blue collar jobs. Middle class Americans are also required to make financial setbacks to maintain those corporate profits.
For more than 25 years U.S. policy regarding immigration has been extremely relaxed to satisfy the high demands from corporate America for cheap labor; and Washington has backed world trade policies to benefit corporate America in the 21st Century slave markets.
Stewart Alexander, the Peace and Freedom Party candidate of California lieutenant governor, says, “I have been sharply criticized for my ballot position to double the minimum wage. However in California that is still at poverty levels.”
In 1995 the average Californian could make ends meet on a family income of thousand annually. However today a couple earning an hour each, or thousand a year, will not keep up with the cost of living in California.
Corporate America will not pay the salaries to meet a decent standard of living because Washington is today’s strongest supporter for cheap labor; also enforcing laws, on corporate America, to curtail the flow of immigrants falls low on the national political agenda.
Alexander says, “It is time to end slavery, in America and the world, to benefit big corporations. The way we have done business for hundreds of years is not working in the 21st Century. Doubling the minimum wage is a start but not a solution. Today we must find ways to end poverty on both sides of the border; for poor Mexicans, poor Whites and Blacks. The way we are doing business in America and the world is as old as the presidents on our U.S. currency.”
Alexander believes the new leadership going to Washington needs to be advocates for world economic reform to end world poverty. Alexander says, “The Democratic Republican Party no longer represents poor Whites, Blacks or immigrants and that is a setback for all Americans.”
