What do you think of an African-American leader opposing mass immigration?
DALLAS, TX -- TV spots featuring Dr. Frank Morris, former Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Executive Director, launched across the country this week. The TV spots were developed by Morris and the Coalition for the Future American Worker, a large coalition of groups of which CAPS is a member, and are part of an ongoing national campaign. Morris asserts that America's leaders are misinformed or are simply ignoring the plight of low-income Black American workers victimized by mass immigration. Morris has vowed to get the facts about the negative consequences of mass immigration into the hands of all Americans as well as America's leaders whose public statements contradict the facts. Dr. Morris commented, "America's leaders need to wake up. It's a fact; foreign workers are taking jobs and depressing wages of Americans from all backgrounds. However, Black workers are being disproportionately affected. Studies prove 40% of the decline in Black employment is due to immigration. "While many studies document immigration' s effect on American workers, Morris frequently cites the National Bureau of Economic Research Paper 12518 in the TV spots. NBER Paper 12518 was developed by Harvard professor George Borjas, University of Chicago's Jeffrey Grogger and University of California's Gordon Hanson.

If the Blacks worked as hard as the Hispanics and stop depending on welfare, then we may not have as many illegals. Its takes 3 black works to produce 1 Mexican output with less problems.

i dont see anything wrong wit it. he is right. i think we should do less with immigration (legal) and deport all the illegal aliens. i think our country is under too much stress right now. and should get our country under control till we start letting people in.
