I'd like some black perspectives on the issue of immigration. I know that the overwhelming majority of black people support the Democrat party, and in the current era the Democratic party is the largest supporter of mass immigration/ illegal immigration (not that there aren't plenty of GOPers who support it too). Now, it appears to me that illegal immigration hits the black community as hard or harder than any other ethnic community in the nation. For example, MOST of the mass immigration is from somewhere in the 3rd world, most often latin America. Most of them are poor and try to procure low skilled/unskilled jobs. If/when they become legal, they are also some of the largest recipients of welfare. Now, please note that I am referencing objective facts here and am not trying to offend anyone, but merely initiate a dialog on this issue. Black people, on average, are the most impoverished group in the nation. They are the largest per capita recipients of welfare. They absorb somewhere between 40 and 50 percent of the welfare resources, while only being 12% of the population. Black people are also among the least educated in the nation on average, meaning that most jobs they would obtain would be low skilled or unskilled jobs; the EXACT jobs which the droves of hispanics are taking. I don't understand why more black people aren't taking a more serious stand on illegal immigration because 1) both the legal and illegal 3rd world immigrants are taking the very jobs and lowering the very wages which most black workers will be competing for. AND for the welfare blacks who do not work, the 3rd world immigrants are in huge competition with the blacks for welfare resources. Yes, of course I know there are uneducated whites and asians, as well as poor whites, but this issue disproportionately affects the black community to a much larger degree than it does other communities. Although many blacks DO support repatriation measures (sending illegals back to their nations), they largely keep voting for politicians who support the continued mass importation of 3rd worlders. My question is WHY? Do black people overlook this to vote politicians who will extend welfare policies? Are most black people simply unaware of these facts? What is it? Thanks in advance for your reply.
