It is often touted that most of the illegal aliens in the US are here because they do the jobs Americans don’t want to do, like pick crops. It’s total nonsense.
Truth is illegal aliens living in the US are taking the jobs Americans love to do, like building homes.
When it comes to illegal immigration, no industry has been hit harder than the construction industry. In 2014, Senator Rand Paul stated that 6 million illegal aliens were working in the construction industry, thus, pushing out the American workers who cannot compete with the low wages paid to illegal workers.
But now, a new effort in automating construction projects may have a unforeseen consequence: eliminating the jobs illegal aliens want to do.
FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS:
As a teenager working for his dad’s construction business, Noah Ready-Campbell dreamed that robots could take over the dirty, tedious parts of his job, such as digging and leveling soil for building projects.
Now the former Google engineer is turning that dream into a reality with Built Robotics, a startup that’s developing technology to allow bulldozers, excavators and other construction vehicles to operate themselves.
The San Francisco startup is part of a wave of automation that’s transforming the construction industry, which has lagged behind other sectors in technological innovation.
Claiming there is a nationwide shortage of “skilled workers” to complete construction jobs, the AP suggests the robots will help fill the void. What it fails to say is why there is a shortage of skilled workers. Fact is, American workers left the construction trade after years of being shut out. Unable to compete against cheap labor, skilled Americans fled construction to earn a living in other industries.
So what’s the bottom line? Liberals have done everything possible to stop Trump and his administration from carrying out the immigration laws in this country. Perhaps it will be Silicon Valley, aka known as the liberal mecca of the US, that eventually sends home the illegal aliens thanks to their desire to innovate and make a fortune doing so.
This week, the government will once again battle to remain open. Funding the government is now hinging — in part — on the betterment of illegal aliens. Democrats and Republicans are currently tossing around DACA proposals to be included into a spending bill. READ HERE for MORE. Perhaps we can get robots to fill in for members of Congress?
Below is a clip from my film They Come to America: The Cost of Illegal Immigration. It highlights what I’ve written above.
