NC driving privileges for illegal aliens clears committee, Governor McCrory opposes, Citizen Wells opposes, Immigrants taking American jobs and being rewarded as criminals, 75 percent of Obama jobs went to Hispanics Latinos
“In today’s labor market, there are nearly 1 million “missing” young workers—potential workers who are neither employed nor actively seeking work (and are thus not counted in the unemployment rate) because job opportunities remain so scarce. If these missing workers were in the labor market looking for work, the unemployment rate of workers under age 25 would be 18.1 percent instead of 14.5 percent.”…Economic Policy Institute May 1, 2014
“In February 2015 there were 43,000 fewer white Americans employed, 354,000 more not in the labor force, 96,000 more employed and we added 295,000 jobs? Was Common Core math used?”…Citizen Wells
“In December 2014 there were 18 million immigrants (legal and illegal) living in the country who had arrived since January 2000. But job growth over this period was just 9.3 million — half of new immigration.”…Center for Immigration Studies February 2015
I have been watching in amazement as municipalities around me have for several years been acknowledging ID cards issued by pro immigration groups.
These ID cards have prevented illegal aliens in NC, when stopped by traffic police from being arrested as they should be for being here illegally.
Now the state of NC may be giving illegal aliens more carte blanche as they reside in this state and take jobs from native born Americans (and yes I can prove that).

“NC driving privileges for people in US illegally clears committee”
“House Bill 328 would create a “restricted ID” for undocumented residents in North Carolina that would look different from a standard driver’s license. People obtaining one of the permits would need to undergo fingerprinting and background checks and prove their identity. Driving privileges would be attached to the restricted ID once applicants pass a state driving test and obtain liability insurance coverage.
While the bill cleared committee on a 22-11 vote, the measure is controversial, splitting Republicans in the House who are divided between encouraging people who are on the road anyway to get insurance and those who say the state should not provide public benefits to undocumented workers.
“What we want to do in this undocumented community is to separate those who are engaged in criminal activity from those who otherwise are not engaged in unlawful activity,” said sponsor Rep. Harry Warren, R-Rowan.
“I believe they are committing a crime being illegally present in the United States,” said Rep. Bert Jones, R-Rockingham, who dialed in on provisions of the bill that would require someone who obtained one of the new driving privilege cards to be fingerprinted and undergo a background check that would ensure they hadn’t committed any serious crimes.
Gov. Pat McCrory, also a Republican, sent his legislative liaison to the committee Tuesday to express his disapproval as well.
“He is opposed to this bill,” said Ryan Minto. “He (the governor) is concerned with the provision providing driving privileges to people in the country illegally.”
During a committee meeting last week, opponents of the bill tried to do away with the driving privilege provision. That amendment, which would have left mainly punitive measures in the bill, failed.
Warren said the bill was meant to provide both a “carrot and stick” to urge drivers to obtain identification and insurance. Roughly 10 states already offer a similar privilege, Warren said, although North Carolina’s standards for obtaining the card would be more stringent than most.
Warren and other backers of the bill said that immigration is a federal issue, one the United States government hasn’t dealt with efficiently. The result, he said, was an estimated 325,000 undocumented people in North Carolina alone, a situation that has created a hazard on the state’s roads.”
I have heard all of the arguments about the impact of illegal aliens and that they do jobs that Americans do not want.
This is simple supply and demand economics.
Take the illegals, who are willing to work for lower wages, out of the market and the wages will rise and Americans will fill the void.
An examination of the jobs situation under Obama reveals this.
From Citizen Wells June 3, 2015.
“At least 9 million native born Americans being added to the labor force and immigrants taking native born American jobs.
There was an increase of over 12 million not in the labor force since Obama took office.
The youngest members of the workforce, 16 and above will be hit the hardest by immigrant workers.
And all of those jobs that Obama bragged about and Janet Yellen and others referred to….
Of the approx. 6 million new employments since Obama took office in January 2009, 4,511,000 were Hispanic/Latino!
We have barely, if at all, recovered all of the jobs lost during the recession and 75% of the job growth went to Hispanic/Latinos!!””
From Citizen Wells February 11, 2015.
“From the Center for Immigration Studies August 2014.
“An analysis of government data by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that, since 2000, all of the net increase in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job in North Carolina has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal).
This is the case even though the native-born accounted for 61 percent of growth in the state’s total working-age population.”
The NC percent of population employed dropped 8.6 percent since 2000!!!
Dr. Ada Fisher is a retired physician and Republican National Committeewoman from NC.
Yesterday by “chance” for the second time in several months, I caught her interview on “Black Issues Forum” on UNC TV.
The timing could not have been better.
Dr. Fisher is for legal immigration and against illegals entering our country.
She warns about the impact of illegal immigrants on black employment.
Watch the interview.
I am for legal immigration and not rewarding those who come here illegally and take advantage of our kindness and in many cases commit other criminal acts and in most cases use our resources at native born Americans’ expense.
