Letter: The 1 percent is exploiting us all

All American workers, both legal and sans documents, have to start paying attention. What passed in the Senate as “comprehensive immigration reform” would comprehensively screw all U.S. workers.

Until now the 1 percent have destroyed the bottom of the wage scale by abusing way over 11 million illegals at the expense of the U.S. citizens. The Senate bill allows our legal immigration rate to more than triple the present-day million plus per year.

And we’re definitely not talking about extra laborers. Nope, all you college grads with the huge loan debt can look forward to competing with half-price foreign nationals who have access to an unlimited supply of work visas.

The world’s biggest problem is overpopulation. This country’s workers and their quality of life need not be jeopardized by illegal or legal immigration.

It’s time the 1 percent stopped bending over the worker and calling it reform.
