Big Business Groups Fear Losing Cheap Labor As Supreme Court Takes On DACA


The Supreme court will hear arguments in November
about the Trump administration’s decision to end DACA protection for children of illegal
immigrants and business groups, well, they’re not happy about it, but it isn’t because they
love humanity so much. I can promise you that. I have Farron Cousins from the trial lawyer
magazine with me to explain why these groups are so chummed up about this. He’s written about it. He knows a lot about this topic. Let’s talk about it Farron. Well, you know, this basically, it doesn’t
just start with Trump. Actually, this goes all the way back to the
Bush administration. Around 2006 the Bush administration was working
on a big immigration overhaul. They wanted to get rid of illegal immigrants. They wanted to, you know, really crack down
on it because that’s what the Republican base loves to hear. So at that time, the US chamber of commerce
came in and, I believe it was Tyson foods. It was Tyson. They came in with the chamber and said, listen,
Bush administration, we, we appreciate what you’re doing here, but we need these people. And so fast forward now 13 years, they’re
having to do the same thing with the Trump administration. They’re, you know, they say, look, we understand
Mr. Trump. This is what you ran on. You want to, you know, crack down on immigration. But the truth is we have to have these people
and we’re the ones who fund a lot of the campaigns on both the left and the right. And this is why nothing ever gets done about
immigration. Okay. You got these loonies, you got really these
loonies that are saying, oh my gosh, isn’t this wonderful? They’re finally showing a, you know, a human
side. Let me tell you what’s not human. Let me tell you, it’s anything but human,
is the US chamber of commerce and the business roundtable. Now you got to understand those are the people
that are saying, now we want to test, we want to test the immigration policy. It doesn’t have anything to do with decency. It has to do with cheap labor, okay. These are the same people. The business roundtable, I’ve got to say,
if you attach anything ugly that’s happened in the United States in the last 25 years,
you will always see the business roundtable. Whether it’s the burn down in Washington,
I mean burn down in, in, in Wall Street where nobody got prosecuted. Whether it’s a bad environmental movement
that’s taken place. Whatever it is, taking advantage of consumers,
the pharmaceutical industry, you know, what doing every day what they do and that is to
play all the games against the interest of consumers. Anytime you see something really ugly going
on, you will always find the business roundtable and the US chamber of commerce. Most people Farron don’t even know what the
business roundtable is. Tell us about it. Well, this is a group that’s been around since
the 70s and they came about from all the corporate leaders, similar to the US chamber of commerce
and their, their original goal or at the time their biggest project was we’re going to weaken
labor laws. We’re going to get rid of labor unions, we’re
going to get rid of labor protections because we want to be able to use it, abuse our employees. They were successful. So the 80s came along and the business roundtable
said we’re moving into tax cut territory now. So they got Reagan to extend the tax cuts,
the trickle down economics that failed the economy horribly. And then the 90s came along, they were pushing
for NAFTA. That was their big goal in the 90s, give us
NAFTA. And that was so we could go and we could hire
cheap labor in places like Mexico and India and China. Now they’re saying, why worry about all that? Bring in cheap labor. So what their focus is just so we don’t get
too far and falling in love with these corrupt freaks, the business roundtable and the US
chamber of commerce, it’s all about getting unskilled labor to come into the United States
where they can pay him $5 an hour or the kind of money that the Tyson foods would pay, paying
them to work the chicken farms or whatever it is, factory farming. Whatever kind of factory farming. They want to move in. They want to take advantage of them and then
beyond that they don’t really care. Then the tax payers in the United States have
to figure out, okay, how do we deal with this problem? It’s the equivalent of them, it’s equivalent
of the passing on those liabilities to taxpayers. Right. After they’ve taken advantage of all the advantages
from the unskilled labor. And what we’ve seen a lot too is that these
businesses, they’ll absolutely outright warn their workers, the, these illegal immigrant
workers and they say, listen, yeah, we’re, we’re paying you below minimum wage. We’re working you 15 hours a day and not giving
you overtime, who are you going to complain to? Because if you go file a complaint, you’re
deported. We’ve got you, you know, by the ankles. You can’t go. Just like what we saw recently happened in
Mississippi where they raided the meat packing plant. Hundreds of immigrants kicked out and not
a thing happened to the owners here. Cheap labor, no liability when they get killed,
when they get hurt. Let me tell you who the people are behind
this movement so you don’t go embracing, oh my God, what a bunch of wonderful folks and
we don’t hear this snowflake talk about immigration related as this as something good because
corporate America wants it. Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley Citigroup,
Bank of America, Boeing. I could go on forever. The people who make all of the military machine
work in this lot, in this world. The people who, the people who every, every
week we’re seeing another ugly story about them destroying an entire ecosystem with environmental
problems. The very people who caused the burn down on
Wall Street where nobody got prosecuted. That’s the people behind this. As a matter of fact, if you look at who their,
who their go to people are all the people you would expect. Hank Paulson, Tim Geithner, Larry Summers,
Jamie Dimon. Jamie Dimon, by the way, you know, is, is,
is now running the, this roundtable, this business roundtable. And every time I hear some announcer on television,
corporate media talking about, oh, isn’t this wonderful? This is all about cheap labor. Yeah. They don’t care about these people. Put them in a factory farming situation. If they cut off an arm, send them back to
Mexico. That’s their attitude. So that’s what this is really all about. Absolutely.

    When Republicans talk about doing something about illegal immigration, it's just smoke and mirrors to appease their racist base. Truth be told; they won't do anything about it because their Corporate Overlords don't want to lose that cheap labor pool.

    Big business, especially big Agri -business should lose everything they own for the evil they are perpetrating on mankind. They should be force fed GMO`s till they die !

    I agree with all you said here, but I'm worried it can be twisted by those hating on thee poor kids that are in limbo at the moment. It's important to protect the people who are most affected here with this, and still address the corrupted corporations.

    If these Corporations had to pay a living wage and recognise the rights of their workers, the price of every consumer item would skyrocket. Americans are living beyond their means because of cheap labour. McDonald's and all the fast food outlets would go out of business. Cars, refrigerators, furniture, bedding etc would become luxuries. Bring it on.

  27. Snake Man says:

    Human rights in the US are and have been diminishing every year. Blame the greedy politician on both parties that change the laws to benefit their contributors.

  29. Mary Stevenson says:

    Texas Medicaid has to care for workers paralyzed or similar for life (us taxpayers) after the construction or such sites allow them to work "on the books" as Independent Contractors. The Companies still make their money and no liabilities for them. They wash their hands.

    Greedy billionaires 🤑 and trump. GOD🙏 help the USA 🇱🇷!!!

  32. Angel Light says:

    They don't want to fix the immigration system because they want to make sure these poor immigrants can't come here legally so they can be taken advantage of. We do need immigrants to do the jobs nobody else will. We also have poor wages for our own citizens, it's not hard to imagine they would exploit immigrants too. They already abuse of citizens right's, what we expect them to do with immigrants is much worse. The corporations and the government abuse of everyone not just the immigrants, anything for profits. If we made it easier for people to come in legally we wouldn't have this problem, but again we just demonize the immigrant, rather than question the root of the problem, which is the immigration system that is set up to create more illegal immigration rather than legal. What ROF is basically saying is that we can't trust corporations to be on the side of human rights.

  33. Angel Light says:

    The US foreign policy is to go around the world destabilizing and creating more refugees. All about control, money, greed, and power. It needs to stop now!

    good

    seriously

  41. Mike Harrington says:

    A lot of the US labor problems could be significantly eased with a basic minimum living wage, say $15 per hour. Since the UK Socialist Govt introduced this in 1998 it has been maintained by Conservative govts & since then there has been nil significant worker unrest stoked by labor Unions. Corporations who complained like hell have successfully adjusted their pricing accordingly (including UK Walmart badged as Asda). It doesn't work so well for the Mom & Pop stores & is still not enough in places where the cost of living is higher.

    US corporations use Socialism as a dirty word to screw over their employees & the rah-rah yah-boo Republican rank & file swallow it !!
