The job market is tight but the unskilled labor market is even tighter. For those with a high school diploma or less, fast food service or janitorial work seem to be the only options. Now even these jobs seem scarce as many immigrants, willing to work hard for long hours and minimum pay, have become the preferred work force for many companies. Are immigrants taking away jobs in the inner city? Or are others just too unwilling to work as hard? Are employers taking unfair advantage of immigrants, some who may not yet have citizenship? Our guest today, Nerissa Allegretti of NAFCON, discusses some of the issues that arise when immigrants come to America.

Guest Stephen D. Guschov, Esq - Executive Director of Legal Immigrants for America
LEGAL IMMIGRANTS FOR AMERICA (LIFA) come forward to have their voices heard. Legal Immigrants, many of whom fled totalitarian regimes around the world, cannot and will not stand silent while this country is transformed into yet another one that they will have to flee. https://www.golifa.com/
LEGAL IMMIGRANTS FOR AMERICA addresses immigration issues that concern all Americans, seeks to influence public policy and to educate people about United States immigration history.
We stand for 1) English as the language of the land, 2) strict control of the borders and enforcement of all immigration laws, and 3) repeal of the Fourteenth Amendment that has led to a flood of “anchor babies.”

Republican in every presidential election but one from 1952 to 1988 and leading a national movement against taxes, California has become the crown jewel of the Democratic presidential map. Every statewide official is currently a Democrat, and the party holds wide majorities in the legislature even as Republicans have made statehouse gains in blue states like Wisconsin and Michigan under President Obama.One key factor in the shift: A political awakening among the state’s Hispanic voters, who flocked to the polls to combat an anti-immigrant campaign with parallels to GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s current run.n 1994, Republican Gov. Pete Wilson ran for re-election alongside ballot measure Proposition 187, which barred undocumented immigrants from government services. Proposition 187 passed easily and Wilson succeeded in his bid, but the long-term damage proved severe. Latino voter registration soared and the new voters who hit the polls were solidly Democratic. The trend spilled over into national politics as well: Hispanic turnout surged in 1996 and exit polls pegged President Bill Clinton’s share at 75%.MSNBC
Mr. Bush won more than 40% of the Hispanic vote in 2004, yet eight years later Mitt Romney would win only 27% of this fast-growing group—a percentage that Mr. Trump apparently thinks is far too high. Recent history shows that Hispanics are swing voters in national elections who have been driven into the arms of Democrats over the past decade because GOP rhetoric has made them feel unwanted WSJ

The outrage over police shootings of unarmed citizens has reached explosion level. In cities across the country, citizens have protested, sat in, attended meetings, held press conferences, boycotted, and threatened to vote officials out of office. It seems that nothing works. Officers have run amuck. We pay salaries to people who kill our loved ones with seeming impunity. What will it take to make it stop? Irate citizens faced members of the police board and the interim Police Superintendent to express their distrust, anger and frustration at the police and to demand that the abusive officers be fired. What legal grounds to citizens have to stop police abuse? Or will new tactics be required to remove killers from patrolling the streets? Chicago activist Queen Sister, head of It Takes A Village, shares her perspective. Warren Houston, founder of The People's Law Study Group and host of Know Thyself Radio offers legal tactics citizens can use that can make a big difference.
