Currently, on the website WeHireAliens.com, there are 2,456 companies in 47 states listed that are "allegedly" hiring and using ILLEGAL alien labor.

Is there anyone in our government that cares about enforcing the laws that are currently on the books? Is there anyone out there that cares?

About 29% of the illegals in the country come from mexico. You always hear about them.
On the other hand about 25% of illegals come from asia. You almost never hear about them.

Wonder why that is...

>>Why reward cutting in line?<< . . . and breaking the law? Doesn't that just encourage others to do the same thing?

Any answers from the pro-amnesty crowd?

For unemployment, probably not 6 months, no.

QUESTION: Do you think that when a President is inaugurated, that any plan that administration formulates can be pushed through the Senate and House of Representatives to become a Law AND that the new Law will have some affect upon unemployment and the economy - all within 3 months?

>That might be an argument if Obama had been able to get the unemployment rate
>down to 6.5% or less, but that hasn't happened in the last four plus years

1) Why would that make for an argument or not about what the rate was during January to April 2009? That makes no logical sense at all. The fact of what it was during that specific time frame is completely irrelevant to what had happened after that time frame. It either was those numbers or it was not.
2) I agree that not enough was done to re-surge the economy and unemployment rate during Obama's first term.

>. . . and it doesn't look like it will be happening any time soon.

Since, as I have repeatedly stated, it take *time* for such affects to occur - this is of course true and is known. (I really do not remember when unemployment was able to drop by a full percent in a month.)

>How long are democrats going to continue to blame the negative things about
>this economy on the Republicans?

It is not Democrat vs Republican. It is simply facts involving time.

>Bell30012, do you need help reading the chart below?

Bell30012 probably does not. Just as Bell30012 does not seem to need any help in *comprehending* the basics involved in economics - like how changes actually take *time*.

>Do you remember when Obama was voted into office? Yes, the facts are there.
>Can you see them?

The *data* about the unemployment rate is there.
The *facts* about how long it takes for things that occur in our Government to have any impact on the unemployment rate is what is being taught to you now.

>Looks like you are wrong, ShanC.

06/2008 = 5.6%
07/2008 = 5.8%
08/2008 = 6.1%
09/2008 = 6.1%
10/2008 = 6.5%
11/2008 = 6.8%
12/2008 = 7.3%
01/2009 = 7.8%
02/2009 = 8.3% - The first full month of Obama's Presidency.
03/2009 = 8.7%
04/2009 = 9.0%

As previously noted: Taking into consideration the time it takes for any Bills to get passed into Law, and the time it would take for any such Laws to provide any effect on unemployment - it is known by those with knowledge of Politics and Economics that indicators (such as unemployment) during those first few months of a Presidency are the extended result of the previous Presidency.

Now please proved your proof as to how I am wrong about that.

>>The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose from 4.3% in January 2001, peaking at 6.3% in June 2003 and reaching a trough of 4.4% in March 2007. After an economic slowdown, the rate rose again to 6.1% in August 2008 and up to 7.2% in December 2008.<<

Obama does not have an unemployment rate.
The U.S. employment rate that skyrocketed up during the Bush administration's was of course not going to go down during the very beginning of the Obama administration. Economists never expected it to, and only people with a great degree of ignorance would expect any immediate effects on unemployment to come about from any changes. (ie: Smart people know things take time.)
What *did* happen during the Obama administration was taking the Bush administration's unemployment rate of 9.0% down to 7.8%.

>How about within four years?

Which is what happened from the Bush 9.0% (or more) to 7.8%.
{ 9.0 > 7.8 }

The same thing goes for the DJIA.

So you agree with me, ShanC, that Obama's unemployment rate has not gone down since he has been in office.

>>Obama took office in the second half of January. Now of course it is technically impossible for a President to implement a plan (even if already devised) for employment recovery within a month or two.<<

How about within four years?

>Is it any wonder that the unemployment rate has not gone down
>since Obama took over as president?

In January 2009 the unemployment rate was 7.8%, and had already been on an upward trend: 09/2008 = 6.1%, 10/2008 = 6.5%, 11/2008 = 6.8%, 12/2008 = 7.3%.
Notice the upward trend. Given the severity of the economic crash, it was naturally expected to continue to increase.
Obama took office in the second half of January. Now of course it is technically impossible for a President to implement a plan (even if already devised) for employment recovery within a month or two. Also an impossibility is the actual effects of any plan to come about immediately. The economy, employment rate, and many other things actually take *time* to respond to implemented changes.
In October 2009 the unemployment rate was 10.0%.
Since then it has been on a downward trend to the current 7.8% in December 2012.

The only that could be a negative there would be that from January 2009 to November 2009 (the start of recovery), it could have taken a few months less - like maybe August or September.
All the rest of the data is contrary to what you posted.
In fact, during Obama's first term, he took the unemployment rate down 2.2% (from 10.0 to 7.8).

Mirna Valenzuela took a trip to Tucson, Arizona’s Casino del Sol Resort with her daughter Zamira Osorio, and hit a $1200 jackpot win. But the lucky win turned unlucky very quickly when events led to Valenzuela’s deportation to Mexico. Federal law requires that winners of $1200 or more show identification for tax purposes. When Valenzuela presented her ID, casino officials suspected it was fraudulent, and called the tribal Pascua Yaqui police. After investigating they determined that the ID was valid, but that Valenzuela and her daughter were undocumented immigrants from Mexico. The mother and daughter were turned over to U.S. Border Patrol and arrested. Valenzuela was deported and Osorio was released under the DREAM act. Casino CEO, Wendell Long said, “We’re not here to deport people,” and that this is the first time since the casino’s 2001 opening that an incident of this type has occurred. Regardless, Zamira Osorio said that her family felt discriminated against and that Casino del Sol Resort should put up a sign that they don’t want illegal immigrants playing at their casino. While the situation is sad, Valenzuela is doing all right and her winnings are still at the casino, where she’ll have to claim them in person with a valid id

Bluebird,

Obama promised immigration reform in his first year, among other things. Just one of the many campaign promises that he never had any intention of fulfilling. Just as well. When Obama says immigration reform, he really means amnesty.
