Immigration

Pornography and illegal migrant workers in the farming industry are also covered in Reefer Madness. While right wing scumbags like Pat Buchanan rave on about illegal migration destroying American culture (excuse me, Pat, but wasn’t migration what created America?) the truth is that a massive part of the US workforce is made up of illegal immigrants. People who are prepared to work for low, low wages in appalling conditions, wide open to all sorts of abuses. Without them much of the US economy would grind to a halt. It is in effect a system very similar to the indentured servants system which was used to bring many poor folk to America in the 1700s and 1800s (amazing how many people don’t know their own history). This also has the knock-on effect of driving down the wages for many industries, meaning US citizens also lose out.
