RULE 308 APPEARS IN NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE

Well, not really, but an article there by Peter Kirsanow offers an economically astute argument in support of points I made here and here.

The takeaway is that what Kirsanow calls the "underclass" is in danger once again of having the door of opportunity slammed in their faces by migrants, except this time it's by massive numbers if illegal migrants. I couldn't have said it better.

Again, the civil rights organizations and the labor unions should be going APE SHIT about illegal immigration. But instead, all we here is crickets chirping.

Exactly right.

Anyone who understands supply and demand graphs know what happens when you increase supply with demand remaining constant; price falls.

This holds true whether the "price" refers to goods at the supermarket or wages paid to workers.

When it comes to labor unions and so-called civil rights groups we have the triumph of ideology over economics, and it works to the detriment of their followers. I'd say "their misfortune", but it affects all of us.
