ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION UPDATE

2.20.2008


What we've heard people say is now turned into an Ad Campaign. Illegal Immigration hurts black labor. Is this about telling the truth to open up people's eyes or about causing a greater divide between black and brown to the advantage of someone who is neither? Ad: Immigration Costs Blacks Jobs - WGCL Atlanta. Check out the ad at the link.

A provocative new immigration advertisement just hit Atlanta’s airwaves. The ad links black unemployment with the rise in illegal immigration. The Coalition for the Future American Worker paid for the spots. Latino advocates like the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund’s Elise Shore are concerned that making a direct link between immigrants and black unemployment is stoking the fire of racial divide. Department of Labor unemployment rates from January show that black unemployment is highest at 9.2 percent, compared to whites and Hispanics.
