THE SUPPRESSION OF THE HISPIANIC LABOR-TRADE By Andre Austin Illegal immigration is a super hot topic publicly discussed by the Republicans on television and sometimes on Black radio which is ignored in the mainstream. Some witty economist from MIT or somewhere should to a study on the impact of unemployment to the degree of illegal immigration. The writer of this project should title it: THE SUPPRESSION OF THE HISPIANIC LABOR-TRADE To The United States of America, 1986-2008. Those who familiar with the writings of W.E.B. DuBois will notice the above title was written by Dubois in 1896 for his dissertation for Harvard. The only difference with the above title is African for Hispanic 1638-1870 for 1986-2008 and I exchanged slave for labor. There are historical comparisons. In 1808 it was illegal to import slaves to America but it wasn’t enforced. Dubois brilliantly pointed out in his book that enforcement of the illegal importation/immigration of people shifted back and forth depending on: 1. The economic climate of the times 2. White fears of competition with slave labor 3. Violent international eruptions especially the one in Haiti in 1791 4. White fears of being outnumbered in their states and communities 5. Abolitionist appealing on religious grounds to end importation and slavery. 6. Greed from profits and tax on goods like cotton and tobacco benefited corporations/plantations and the Government making both sides look the other way. Will America come up with a trade embargo against the human exploitation and migration of labor or will there be a perpetual binary opposition between supporters and opposes? Lets look at the current comparisons. A. We are in or near a Recession I call a depression. B. Whites fear of being a minority C. Blacks fear of adverse effects of unemployment D. Fears of violence of Mexican gangs and terrorism E. Catholics, modern day abolitionist, looking out for Mexicans, their brothers in creed. F. White corporate greed desiring to suppress wages and labor by hiring non-citizens. This essay isn’t about race or religion it’s about economic equality and justice and the best policy of America to move forward as a whole.
