Immigrants for Sale

One of the problems with a free market is that when the market is the ultimate decider of values (and doesn't have to answer to anyone), it always decides on the side of profits, regardless of the ethical impact such choices might entail. And when profit is the ultimate goal, even human beings become a mere commodity to be exploited...

Of course, most of us are protected by the Bill of Rights, but undocumented immigrants usually have no knowledge of such rights, are too afraid to demand the respect they deserve as human beings (for fear of being deported, for instance), or have no voice or organization because they are automatically silenced by racist remarks shrouded in the mantra of 'stealing' American jobs (as if any of us would be willing to work that hard for so little pay).

The result, as the following animation shows, is that many immigrants are being recycled through a multi-billion self-perpetuating system of corruption that exploits them, and for which you and I are paying so that a bunch of greedy (and sometimes racists) jerks can profit...



Visit Immigrants for Sale to lend a hand to end this corruption.

Do you know where we really lose American jobs? Outsourcing... but since that's how corporations get to make shitloads of money, it makes sense that they'd want to distract the rest of us with the red herring of illegal immigration... and we are just too eager to take the bait :(
