Here's another way Jose Illegal harms the economy:

As long as employers can hire low-wage labor, they won't invest in labor-saving technology. For example, it's cheaper/simpler to hire day laborers only when you need them than to invest in a Bobcat...

But that Bobcat doesn't flush a toilet, send its kid to public school, go to the emergency room, crash into people when it's drunk, or ask for handouts at local charities. Nor does it vote for politicians that pander to "Bobcat Power."

It's investment in labor-saving technology that boosts productivity. And its rising productivity that creates rising wages and standards of living.

Ask yourself this: "If cheap labor is the key to economic success, why aren't Somalia and Pakistan world powers?"

So, you just did the math?

About 3 years ago I pointed out that the people working inside Home Depot as employees were getting paid maybe $10.00/hour with taxes and benefits deductions.

Out in the parking lot, the illegal alien day-laborers were getting paid $15.00/hour under the table, no deductions.

Who is making more money, where, at Home Depot? Illegal workers outside, or legal workers inside?

I know for a fact that the illegals loading up cars in 2007 were making enough to pay for a very large individual to be their gang enforcer and take a straight percentage off of the top of ever last transaction paid to the illegal alien day laborers.

And you know what else?

Any time I write about them, someone makes good on Gustavo Torres's declaration of intent to stalk and harass.

Mostly it's illegals in construction vehicles throwing stuff out of their driver side windows into oncoming traffic, specifically me.

CASA de Maryland and Gustavo Torres need to be subjected to a Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations ("RICO") investigation. People need to be locked up like they were old-school Mafia, which in fact is what they are... only now it's "new school" from central america.
