Politics Make Strange Bedfellows

A union between patriotic white suburbanites and black homeless advocates?

Black Activists Join To March With Minutemen:

CBS) LOS ANGELES Several black activists plan to join members of the minutemen Project to protest illegal immigration, which organizer Ted Hayes touted as the "biggest threat to blacks in America since slavery."

The protest, organized by Hayes Crispus Attucks Brigade and the American Black Citizens Opposed to Illegal Immigration Invasion, is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.

Hayes, a homeless activist, alleged that most homeless people in Los Angeles are black and illegal immigration compounds the problem since blacks refuse to accept the slave wages" that many illegal immigrants accept.

The activists are right. The whole "immigrants do the jobs Americans don't want to" mantra is a farce. They do them at a price that American workers wouldn't settle for. That depresses wage rates and hurts those on the lowest socioeconomic ladder the most severely. More power to them.
