The cost of Carlos Illegal
Illegal immigration is resource theft
1. Illegal immigration is actually illegal.
This post is not about legal immigrants. I am one. I went through all of the bullshit involved in getting a visa to move, I paid my dues, and I live in the UK legally.
Immigrating legally is a commitment one makes to its host country. The whole process of obtaining the visa and putting up with the insane bureaucracy is that you are hereby promising to respect your host country’s laws, and you prove this by undertaking this hideously annoying and pointless exercise in surrealism.
The moment you make that commitment, you find yourself
regarding your move as an investment, and you will not go through all that for
the sake of welfare. Well, most people won’t. There is a specific group of
people who do, and they will be addressed
It’s a contract- you promise and start engaging in
respecting your host country’s laws, and they deem you good enough to let you
in. It’s simple and it’s natural. You don’t let people in your house without
knowing who they are do you? Because the people who do end up on the news,
So if they got away with it once, why do you think they won’t
do it again? A list of all the crimes committed by illegal immigrants in the US
is rather painfully telling.
2. Illegal immigration drives down the price of work
An illegal immigrant has significantly lower work costs than
a legal resident. A legal resident might have a mortgage, and a standard of
living close to that of the rest of his
country and class. An illegal doesn’t have that.
What does this mean? It means that the work of the legal resident of equivalent skill has just lowered its price out of reach for said legal resident.
You see little chikuns, jobs don’t grow on trees. Every job
that an illegal takes, is a job that a legal resident doesn’t.
Job X pays Y.
Now, we’re talking about Joe Sixpack. Joe Sixpack is at best
a semi skilled worker, and pretty much always blue collar. He can’t afford savings and may not have a
mortgage, which means that he probably lives check to check like most people in
the lower 50 percentile.
Now, Carlos Illegal has just come to town. Carlos Illegal
doesn’t have a mortgage. He’s fresh off the border so he’s likely to live with
other people in a slum, which means that his living expenses are significantly
lower than those of Joe Sixpack. He won’t have a car from day one, which means
that he doesn’t yet need money for insurance etc.
I have very bad news for you- you’re hilariously stupid.
It also means that Joe Sixpack’s kids will definitely not go
to college now.
And all of this rests on the assumption that Carlos Illegal
spends all of his money in the local economy.
You don’t know what the problem with that is? It’s simple: the money that Joe Sixpack would’ve spent on local economy, Carlos Illegal will send out of the country. That money will go towards retail jobs in wherever Shitholia Carlos Illegal is from.
How do I know this?
I’m Romanian. 50% of Romania’s adult population lives abroad
and send money home every fucking month.
I’m so glad you asked.
That is money that goes out of the local economy. Now, 2008 was the height of the crisis. Tell me, do you know anyone who lost their retail or service job in 2008?
Guess what? If that money would’ve stayed in the economy of the host countries, at least some of those jobs would’ve been saved. The state would’ve gotten sales tax on it, and the retailers and service providers would’ve made more money and thus kept more people employed.
But let’s look at numbers.
3. So how much does Carlos Illegal cost?1. Tax on Y minus K
2. Welfare for Joe Sixpack, because Carlos’ very existence means Joe has no chance to ever get a job at Y wage.
3. Less money into the local economy because Joe Sixpack doesn’t have enough money anymore to spend.
4. The money Carlos sent out of the country.
And this isn’t even counting the stretch on local services which don’t grow on trees.
So no, it’s not a matter that Joe Sixpack doesn’t want the
job. It’s just that he can’t afford to live oiff it anymore because Carlos Illegal
gets rewarded for breaking the law.
