THE U.S. CHAMBER of COMMERCE IS A MAJOR ADVOCATE OF OBAMA’S AGENDA OF BORDER SABOTAGE, LA RAZA WELFARE OFF THE BACKS OF LEGALS , NO E-VERIFY, OPEN BORDERS and AMNESTY FOR 40 MILLION LOOTING MEXICANS!
“The U.S. Chamber is in the pocket of Communist China and big companies seeking cheap labor in the United States. We think it is morally repugnant for the chamber to pursue, as a matter of public policy, initiatives which exploit the poor and oppressed, just so they can keep labor costs down for their fortune 500 member companies.”

U.S. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio on Thursday took the unusual action of returning a special interest group’s award he happily accepted earlier this year after disagreeing with the organization’s stance on immigration policy.
The Milford Republican announced in a news release he is returning the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “Spirit of Enterprise” award because of the business group’s recent support of providing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented workers.
“The Chamber of Commerce is beholden to special interests and has long since forgotten the main street businesses that struggle everyday to make payroll and keep their company afloat,” Bentivolio said in a written statement. “It is with great pride that I reject their award, and call on them to stand on the side of America, instead of on the side of China and corporate interests seeking to exploit people for profit. I am with main street, not Wall Street.”
The U.S. Chamber endorsed Birmingham attorney Dave Trott over Bentivolio in the 11th Congressional District Republican primary Aug. 5. Trott has outspent Bentivolio 20-to-1 in the primary.
“The erratic behavior of Congressman Bentivolio continued today,” said Megan Piwowar, Trott’s campaign manager.
Bentivolio’s chief of staff, Rob Wasinger, had even harsher words for the nation’s largest business group’s pursuit of immigration reform.
“The U.S. Chamber is in the pocket of Communist China and big companies seeking cheap labor in the United States,” Wasinger said in a statement. “We think it is morally repugnant for the chamber to pursue, as a matter of public policy, initiatives which exploit the poor and oppressed, just so they can keep labor costs down for their fortune 500 member companies.”
Despite the chamber’s endorsement, Trott “opposes amnesty and will not allow illegal immigrants to have a legal status,” Piwowar said.
Bentivolio’s sudden rejection of the award seems to have been a surprise to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which provided The Detroit News with a photo of the first-term congressman smiling for a photo with the award and chamber president Thomas Donohue.
“In March, Mr. Bentivolio seemed very excited to receive our award,” U.S. Chamber spokeswoman Blair Latoff Holmes said in an email to The News. “Apparently he has changed his mind. It’s likely we will be giving it to Mr. Trott next time around.”
Amnesty… it’s all about keeping wages for Legals depressed.
E-VERIFY: Obama’s war on the American (Legals) worker.
Keeping wages depressed makes campaign donors richer and more generous!
“The principal beneficiaries of our current immigration policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at substandard wages for low-end work. Harvard economist George Borjas estimates that American workers lose $190 billion annually in depressed wages caused by the constant flooding of the labor market at the low-wage end.” Christian Science Monitor
JOBS CRISIS IN AMERICA: Only illegals get them!

"They hauled them down to the border," Sakuma said. "Three days later, they were standing in our office, but they had a different name and a different Social Security number."
MASSIVE UNEMPLOYMENT IN AMERICA AS OBAMA and the DEMOCRAT PARTY PUSH OUR BORDERS OPEN, SABOTAGE E-VERIFY, AND PROMISE ILLEGALS NO ENFORCEMENT OF LAWS PROHIBITING THE EMPLOYMENT of ILLEGALS… it’s all about buy the Mexican vote and keeping wages depressed for DEM POL paymasters!
There are mounting warnings by economists that the US confronts long-term economic stagnation and high unemployment into the indefinite future….
"We could cut unemployment in half simply by reclaiming the jobs taken by illegal workers," said Representative Lamar Smith
AMERICA: NO LEGAL NEED APPLY!!!
Most evangelicals, 73 percent, said that, instead of bringing in more immigrant workers, employers should be ‘required to try harder to recruit and train, Americans from those high-unemployment groups. And most evangelicals, 68 percent, said they are willing to pay higher prices if it is necessary for employers to raise wages to fill jobs with Americans instead of adding more foreign workers.”
