Interesting position the Chamber of Commerce has taken on illegal immigration. They're dug in pretty good.

From one of the comments section:


"Why is the Chamber trying to drive S. 744, with its doubling of legal immigration, down our throats? An examination of the current situation by George Borjas, a labor economist at Harvard, provides the answer.

Our current large immigrant workforce increases our GDP by $1610 billion dollars. However, $1575 billion dollars of that goes to the immigrants. That leaves a benefit of $35 billion dollars/yr for the rest of us in return for adding the 41 million immigrants, plus a similar number of their children to what is already the third most populous country on earth.

But, there is much worse. Borjas estimates that the increase in the labor
supply that the immigrants represent drives down the wages of
native-born workers by $402 billion/yr, or about $3300 per worker.
Because wages are driven down, profits to business increase by $437
billion dollars.

This is about transferring more of our nation's stagnant income from workers to owners.

We desperately need decreased immigration, and enforcement that will drive illegals out, not amnesty and increase in legal immigration."

Don't know how much of it is true, but I'd dare say it is close.

Chamber of Commerce has bought & Paid-for, (just about) every Republican in congress. It's a disgraceful organization, run by a deplorable, selfish man.

Mark Levin has given it a more appropriate name: Chamber of Croney-Capitalism.

Realize that the Chamber spends more money buying legislators than any other entity in TN.

On every firearms related bill I have testified in favor of in committee on the Hill, they have had their paid hacks there to speak against it, and sprinkle money on the legislature to make sure there was no floor vote related to a single one of them.

I do think it should be pointed out that any labor economist is left wing and one from Harvard is most likely Marxist.
