Since Renee Ellmers took the oath of office as a representative of the 2nd Congressional District of North Carolina, she shamelessly began to court establishment republicans. How quickly she forgot the tea party patriots who backed and voted for her in the past two elections. I’m sure those who are looking for jobs are not appreciative of her advocacy for the legitimization of illegal aliens who have invaded the Old North State.
Laura Ingraham, a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, interviewed Renee Ellmers. Needless to say, Rep. Ellmers was exposed for the con that she is. Her performance was so bad; her handlers had to employ an advocacy group to stomp out the fire. Brietbart.com reported the following:
“We need your help,” ImmigrationWorksUSA wrote to its email subscribers. “Rep. Renee Ellmers has been an outspoken advocate for immigration reform, and now she is being attacked by the right for her courageous stance. Please join us in speaking out in her defense. Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham called out the congresswoman this morning, and Breitbart TV piled on.”
In the email, the advocacy group wrote that “Rep. Ellmers’ office has asked for our help.” The group then quoted from what a representative from Ellmers’ team specifically asked them to do: “We need any folks that can call the show, or tweet at Laura to do so. We need everyone from top to bottom – from farmers and workers to executives and trade industry folks. She basically claimed that the stories we’re hearing aren’t true. We need to show her that she’s wrong.”
Ellmers interview with radio host Laura Ingraham is one of the least effective pro-amnesty performances from a Republican this Congress since the debate took off following the 2012 elections.
Under fire on amnesty from calm but insistent questioning from Ingraham, Ellmers called her host “small minded,” “ignorant,” and claimed to be the author of a ubiquitous immigration talking point, adopting the third person to say “Renee Ellmers thinks for herself.”
Then ImmigrationWorksUSA gave email also gave subscribers an exactly-worded message to tell Ingraham, a message arguing there is a “labor shortage” in America.
“My company (or my industry) does everything it can to hire American workers. When we can’t find willing and able Americans, we turn to immigrant workers. This allows us to keep our businesses open and growing, creating jobs for Americans. We need Congress to fix the immigration system so we can hire immigrants legally to work alongside Americans.”
As reported by Breitbart News, new research has called into question the notion that there is a “labor shortage,” as employment rates among working-age adults have been declining over the past 15 years.
The Obama administration has done everything possible to ensure Americans cannot or will not work. One example is The Labor Department outlawed kids from working on farms. When I was a teenager that was how I made money. Now it’s against the law. And when a responsible taxpayer suggests we should make the unemployed uncomfortable in their poverty, we are called heartless and mean spirited.
I read a letter to an editor in the Charlotte Observer about a man who was forced to work two menial jobs because the state of North Carolina refused to extend his benefits. How he resented being forced to accept work that was beneath him. He finally found a job in his field, but he’s not making the money he was made before the Great Recession. Now he complains about the 1% hoarding all the wealth.
There are plenty of American workers out there. They need to stop being coddled.
