Who mainly favors letting undocumented workers in
Well is true Reagan sign a Law in 1986 that was sponsored by A Democrat Mazzoli and and a Republican Simpson.
Here were the main components:
- required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status.
- made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit unauthorized immigrants.
- granted amnesty to certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants.
- granted amnesty to illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously.
Hart a Democrat introduced a Bill in 1965 and heavily supported by
Kennedy a Democrat that was signed by Johnson a Democrat
Kennedy and Morrison both Democrats proposed another Bill in 1990
Durbin a Democrat and Hatch a Republican intruded the Dream Act in 2001
Specter a Democrat also Introduced another Bill in 2006
Reid a Democrat introduces a Bill in 2007
The Dream Act resurfaced again in 2009 with the Obama administration Democrats
Now Obama wants 800k illegals forgiven 2012
So lets look at the Statement "Conservatives favor Cheap Labor from Illegals".....
Republican - 2
Democrats - 8
Unless my Calculator broke the Democrats have always favored the Illegal Immigrant.
It seems there was a lot of Regan Bashing, that is unfortunate, the real issue is 30 years later, today.
But as far as the Busting of Unions, I too have friends in the Unions and have had for over 35 years at some point or another.
I can tell you most did not stay, the ones still there have so much seniority they would be crazy to leave, almost every one that was and has been in a Union will tell you they are a joke.
Unions had a place at one time and to some point they still have a place, but most have gotten out of control, this is the consensuses of 14 of the 15 friends and acquaintances I know fairly well.
Reagan was one of the Best Presidents in my lifetime, he may have busted a few Unions, he actually had a couple of other faults too, no one is perfect, but bringing up and defaming him could be done in another Thread about Unions and not "Undocumented Workers"........
