Trump’s Immigration Policy Gets Jobs, Higher Wages for 600 African-Americans



President Donald Trump’s enforcement of immigration laws has delivered hundreds of jobs at higher wages to sidelined African-Americans in Chicago after a Swiss-owned bakery was penalized for employing roughly 800 illegals.

The good news was admitted in a Chicago Sun-Times article:

Ed French, owner of Elgin-based Metro Staff Inc., says his company became the main provider of [replacement] workers for the bakery and that about 80 percent of them are black. According to French … wages [are] up by about 25 cents an hour, to just above minimum wage.

He says everyone hired through his company is permitted to work in the country and has passed a background check and drug test.

According to a former consultant to the bakery, MSI paid the black workers $14 an hour, versus the $10 an hour the Mexican workers were making through Labor Network.

Newly hired Latino-Americans are also getting the higher wage.

The wage-cutting illegals — mostly Mexicans — were employed at the Cloverhill bakery in Northwest Chicago and the company’s other bakeries in Cicero and Romeoville. When the illegals were fired, the company’s output fell and it lost customers. The Swiss owner, Aryzta, has since sold the Cloverhill bakery to Hostess Brands.

Nationwide, many companies and their allied politicians are complaining that Trump’s pro-American policy is leaving them with few imported workers and is forcing up wages. However, CEOs have kept wage increases to just a 1 percent increase from January 2017 to January 2018, after considering inflation.

Trump’s win for Chicagoans comes as local Democratic politicians try to help illegal immigrants instead of Americans. For example, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin spend much of December, January and February trying to win an amnesty for at least 3 million illegal immigrants, which would have ensured a flood of new legal workers for jobs in Chicago and other cities. On January 15, for example, Durbin told reporters:

 I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting [with Presidenet Donald Trump] — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America. I am focused on that full time.

Durbin’s amnesty would also have denied the jobs and wage-raises to the roughly 600 African-Americans now working at Cloverhill.

Trump’s pro-American policy has won him significant support among working-class blacks as black unemployment has fallen to historic lows.

The good economic news from Chicago is offset by the increased diversity and conflict imposed by the pro-immigration Democratic and business groups. reported comments from Dan Giloth, a project director with the Chicago-based Coalition Against Segregation of Employees group:

“Although they lost lots of [illegal] workers through the ICE audit, their response has been hiring lots of workers, mainly blacks, giving them little training, working them excessive hours and giving them mandatory 12- to 16-hour shifts,” he said. “When workers get hurt, they’re essentially thrown away” … also reported:

Lisa Pintado-Vertner, a member of Oak Park Call to Action, said that employees have told her that Aryzta tries to “pit groups against each other, because if you divide you can conquer,” she said.

“We hear stories from African Americans who say Latinos won’t speak English to me and Latinos who say blacks are lazy … “

The Sun-Times reported that African-American employees at Cloverhill summoned Trump’s ICE agents amid blue-collar conflicts over language, hours, shifts, favoritism and pay.

Lynne Lane, a union steward at Cloverhill, says there are tensions as the two groups work side by side. Lane, who is black, says it was black workers at the bakery who called a government hotline to report the Mexican workers to immigration authorities.

“It was [African American] workers in the plant that saw, you know, like I said, that had been treated unfairly and treated like secondary-class citizens” by Hispanic workers, Lane says. “So it was a whole lot of employees in the company. Well, they was given a number, as far as I know. They was given a number to call … to call Immigration.”

Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign laborspikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.



Little’ Dick Durbin Slips Up & Literally Admits He Doesn’t Work For the American People [Video]

Conservative Tribune Reports: When men and women are elected to serve in either branch of Congress, they are supposed to be working on behalf of American citizens, focused on the issues that matter most to them, specifically for the residents and voters of the state and/or district that sent them to Washington.

But according to The Daily Wire, it would appear that Democrat Illinois Senator Dick Durbin is “focused” and “working” on behalf of an entirely different constituency than would be presumed by most people — namely illegal immigrants, and not American citizens or the voters within his own state.

The Senate Minority Whip, a top leader in the Democrat Party, was recently asked by a reporter to respond to allegations that he had lied about President Donald Trump making the now-infamous “s***hole” remark during a recent closed-door discussion in the White House about immigration reform efforts.

A reporter for Chicago’s CBS affiliate, Mike Puccinelli, shared Durbin’s response on Twitter:

Listen, politics ain’t beanbag,” Durbin responded. “When you get into tough, complicated, contentious issues, sometimes rhetoric gets very fiery. If you don’t have a tough skin, this is not a good business to get into.”

Someone should tell that to Democrat New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, but I digress. Durbin continued, “I know what happened. I stand behind every word that I said in terms of that meeting.”

Then Durbin said something that revealed who he is truly working on behalf of in the Senate, and it ain’t the American citizenry.

“I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America. I am focused on that full time,” he added.

I bet the voters of Illinois and residents of Chicago are just thrilled to know that their senator has placed the well-being of illegal immigrants above their own interests, such as funding the military and ensuring the government doesn’t shut down, or supporting tax reform that will help small businesses and job growth within his state.

Indeed, a recent editorial from the Chicago Tribune pointed out that while Trump’s booming economy and lower unemployment rates brought about by tax cuts and deregulation had resulted in economic benefits and job creation in much of the rest of the country, Illinois was lagging behind, particularly black residents living in Chicago.

To wit, while the national unemployment rate for black Americans has fallen to 6.8 percent — the lowest since it began to be tracked in 1972 — the unemployment rate for black citizens in Illinois stood at 10 percent. READ MORE


Trump Hits Dick Durbin With Humiliating New Nickname

One could make a reasonably, realistic argument that President Donald Trump won the 2016 nomination for GOP candidacy thanks to his skillful art of coming up with brilliant nicknames for his opponents. “Lyin” Ted, “Low Energy” Bush, “Lil” Marco… the list goes on and on.

Well, he did it again folks. Just as ultra-liberal Illinois Senator Dick Durbin ramped up his anti-Trump attacks and was responsible for starting the “sh**hole controversy that took over the news cycle, POTUS put him down with the power of 1 Tweet that contained a humiliating, yet perfect nickname.

“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting. Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military,” Trump wrote in a fiery Twitter message aimed at the senator.

Breitbart reported on the original controversy:

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) defended his deputy, Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), on Sunday after critics questioned Durbin’s claim that President Donald Trump had referred to “shithole countries” in a discussion about immigration in the Oval Office on Thursday.
Sen. David Purdue (R-GA), who was at the meeting, told ABC News’ This Week with George Stephanopoulos that Durbin’s account of events was a “gross misrepresentation,” adding that it was “not the first time we’ve had a gross misrepresentation by that individual.”

Purdue elaborated:

The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used, and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive. In 2013, Senator Durbin also made the same accusation against a Republican leader in a meeting with President Obama, and said that he chewed out the president, and was so disrepsectful to President Obama we couldn’t even have the meeting. That’s what he said in 2013. Later that day, the president’s own press secretary came out and said, and I quote: “It did not happen.” This is about a gross misrepresentation. It’s not the first time.

Apparently in response, Schumer tweeted: “To impugn @SenatorDurbin’s integrity is disgraceful. Whether you agree with him on the issues or not, he is one of the most honorable members of the Senate.”
