Elder Patriot – Indiana State Police identified the driver who killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson in a crash on the morning of the Super Bowl. He is Manuel Orrego-Savala.
Salava was driving without a license and a field test revealed he had a blood alcohol level of .15 at the time of the crash, almost double the legal limit.
That wasn’t the only law he was breaking. He was also in the United States illegally.
In fact, Salava is a Guatemalan citizen who has been deported twice in the past.
And therein lies the Democrats’ looming Achilles heel.
Salava’s victim was black. In fact, Edwin Jackson was a feel good story that every American would admire.
After his senior season at tiny Georgia Southern, Jackson went undrafted. He worked hard and eventually caught on with the Indianapolis Colts, the team he remained with until his death.
It is instances like this that drives President Trump’s insistence on enforcing existing law against illegal aliens from entering our country.
Unnecessary violence like this and the jobs that these immigrants take from workers at the lower end of the economic pay scale.
The president took to twitter this morning
Trump will be hammering this message over the next nine months as a key campaign issue to unite his base for his “strong borders” agenda.
But, the economic argument he will make to the Democrats’ most loyal constituent base, black Americans, is jut as compelling and it threatens to destroy the Dems’ hammerlock on that community’s vote.
Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and a former member of the National Labor Relations Board, explained why during testimony to the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration on March 16, 2016:
“The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights was established by the Civil Rights Act of 1957 to, among other things, examine matters related to discrimination and denials of equal protection. Because immigration often implicates issues of national origin and sometimes race discrimination, the Commission has conducted several hearings on various aspects of immigration, particularly illegal immigration. The most recent hearings occurred in January 2015, August 2012 in Birmingham, Alabama and in 2008—the latter specifically related to the effect of illegal immigration on the wages and employment opportunities of black Americans. The evidence adduced at the latter hearing showed that illegal immigration has a disproportionately negative effect on the wages and employment levels of blacks, particularly black males.
“The briefing witnesses, well-regarded scholars from leading universities and independent groups, were ideologically diverse. All the witnesses acknowledged that illegal immigration has a negative impact on black employment, both in terms of employment opportunities and wages. The witnesses differed on the extent of that impact, but every witness agreed that illegal immigration has a discernible negative effect on black employment.”
Two other experts testified that legal immigration costs over $500 billion in annual wages to native-born Americans – including black Americans – and that more than all the job growth in the country since 2007 has gone to immigrants.
That’s a half-trillion dollars every year that needn’t be tacked onto the debt our children will inherit because we are forced to fund welfare programs that the displaced Americans find themselves in need of as a result of legal immigration.
How much illegal immigration adds to the burgeoning debt would be hard to ascertain for obvious reasons, but with as many as thirty million illegal aliens already in our country the costs likely exceed those associated with legal immigrants.
Kirsanow focused his comments on the 15 million known illegal immigrants during his prepared testimony:
He said he discovered these shocking statistics based on his work at Civil Rights Commission hearings and other reports.
Among his findings was that most illegal immigrants are low skill and compete with black males for jobs. The he added this kicker that Donald Trump has been using to drive a wedge between the Dems’ duplicitous tightrope act trying to keep their two competing constituencies under control:
“The obvious question is whether there are sufficient jobs in the low skilled labor market for both African Americans and illegal immigrants. The answer is no.”
In the effort to neuter Trump’s economic pragmatism the Dems’ want both constituent groups to believe that the president is a bigot who hates all non-whites.
There is nothing in President Trump’s past to support the charge that he is a racist.
Trump has built a considerable track record on these things and that reveals he sees only one color – green. He plans on bringing that message to the black community this year and with the Dem’s miserable fifty-year track record as poverty pimps and home-wreckers their coalition looks more fragile than ever.
Couple that with recent statistics that show black unemployment has hit historic lows after only one year in office, Trump is poised to remove the term black from black Americans.
Trump’s “straight Talk Express” rolls on.
