Hispanics strongly support Bush’s temporary-worker program for illegal immigrants. But 52% of whites and 59% of blacks express opposition.
Hear that, President Bush? Hear that, Congress? So why do Blacks oppose amnesty even more than Whites? Well, maybe it has something to do with the fact that many Black laborers have lost their jobs and business to the illegal alien worker problem.
The Wall Street Journal ran an excellent front page piece on this on Wednesday, “How Immigration Upended Dreams of an Entrepreneur,” about William and Starletta Hairston. Mr. Hairston hired illegal aliens for his thriving stucco business and made hundreds of thousands. But then they started their own stucco business and the competition of illegal alien wages drove him out of business.
* Remember when billionaire H. Ross Perot got 19% of the vote in 1992, just enough to usher Bill Clinton into office and George H.W. Bush out?
Well, 2008’s Ross Perot might just be liberal fake-Republican and Islamist-embracer, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, depending on who the Dem and GOP nominees are:
An independent Bloomberg presidential bid, scoring among upscale independents, gives Clinton a 40%-39% edge over McCain in three-way 2008 race.
Yup, Bloomberg could lose it for the GOP. What is it about deranged, egomaniacal billionaires who need attention?
