Why Does Sen. Brown Support Amnesty?
After reading Sen. Sherrod Brown’s book Why American Trade Policy Has Failed: Myths of Free Trade I was heartened to read that I am not the only Democrat that feels President Clinton’s support of NAFTA took America 180 degrees in the wrong direction when it comes to our trade policy.
But I am disappointed that Sen. Brown supports amnesty. Some years ago, I remember a prominent democrat (if you know who it was, please drop me an e-mail) say that “free trade and illegal immigration are two sides of the same coin”.
Our trade relationship with China (and others) is sucking this country dry. The total lack of immigration enforcement is simply allowing US companies to in-source workers to undercut wages and benefits for jobs that cannot ship overseas.
I am left to hope, without much hope, that the Democratic Party will get right with the American middle class working family and face up to the real issue face our country and save the American economy.
