Jobs Lost to Illegals Fuels Resistance to Open Borders

Tamyra Murray owned a small plastering business that employed up to 15 Americans before competitors employing illegal aliens drove her out of business.  She says one competitor even joked about paying illegals a few dollars an hour and letting them sleep on his property.  Now she organizes protests against illegal immigration and open borders politicians.

Fred Bronson is an electrician in North Carolina who was making $19.75 an hour two decades ago.  Now he makes about $13 an hour, which is $7.13 in 1990 dollars.  ” I went in for a raise one time. The owner…looks up and he says, ‘Listen Freddie, I can hire two illegals for what I’m paying you,'” recounts Bronson.
