We need all those manufacturing jobs back in the USA. Period

To The Daily Sun,

Attention presidential candidate. If any one of you can answer this simple question, you get my vote. You all talk a big game on the subject of creating new jobs in this country. How about bringing the old manufacturing jobs back into this country before you fantasize about new jobs? The question is: How are you going to deal with the vast number of American companies, with the American trademark behind their names, enjoying the American tax shelters and loop holes? Are you going to tell all of these companies that if the are going continue to import products into this consumerism country, then their companies will no longer have the luxury of our warm and fuzzy tax laws and they are to move their corporate offices to the respected country's of products origins and loose their U.S. Patent and U.S. Registered Trademark?

Here is a short list or American companies that do not see the need to produce products in the USA.

Levi Strauss, Wrangler - imported from Bangladesh; Faded Glory, Rustler - Mexico; Dickies - Honduras - Fruit of the Loom, Hanes - El Salvador; Dr. Scholls, Hoover, Dirt Devil, Eureka, Bissell, Electrolux - China; Westinghouse, Black and Decker, Sunbeam Products i.e., Mr Coffee/Crock Pot - China; Hamilton Beach - Mexico; GE, George Foreman, Rival, Farberware - China; Bostitch - China; Dremel, Stanley - China, Mexico, Thailand; Skil - Mexico; RCA - China.
This is just to name a few. We all know that I could go on and on with this list.

If you really want to impress your prospected voters than you had better have a plan on what to do about bringing these companies production lines back into the country or kick them out, we need all of these manufacturing jobs back, period. Give us no more of the same BS empty promises on creating jobs with the same old politically correct language.

I'll be awaiting your straight answer, but I will not hold my breath, for you see, I do not think any one of you in the crowd will have a definitive answer.

One more thing, will our U.S. Olympics team be wearing clothing manufactured in China in the up coming Olympics, like they did in the last one?

Make America great again. Huh, well see.

About 60% of illegal-alien households get some form of U.S. welfare

To The Daily Sun,

Except when illegal aliens commit sensational crimes, the media promotes the politicians' idea that we should have compassion for the illegal aliens because they "live in the shadows". But this is mostly a myth.

There is little reason for illegal aliens to live in the shadows any more than any of us. In 2013 the Obama administration allowed over 100,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens, including murderers and rapists, to go free in our country. Last year the Obama administration released many thousands more criminals including 193 convicted murderers and about 300 convicted kidnappers in our country.

Recently we learned about some of these illegal-alien criminals. Francisco Sanchez had been deported five times and convicted of seven felonies before finding sanctuary in San Francisco and killing Kathryn Steinle. Victor Ramirez had been arrested six times including for sexual assault and gun possession before allegedly raping and beating Marilyn Pharis to death with a hammer. Why should any illegal aliens "live in the shadows" when violent criminal illegal aliens are allowed to stay here?

About 60 percent of illegal-alien households receive some form of welfare, obviously they aren't in the shadows when they apply for or collect welfare. Illegal aliens aren't in the shadows when they go to our hospitals, send their children to our schools, participate in protests, wait in known locations looking for work, apply for drivers' licenses, when they apply for income tax refunds, etc.

Illegal aliens in America's 276 sanctuary cities don't need to live in the shadows since these cities don't cooperate with the federal immigration control which rarely enforces our laws anyway. President Obama has even promised to veto Kate's Law which is intended to incarcerate illegal aliens who return illegally after being deported.

The Obama administration falsely claims to be deporting record numbers of illegal aliens. To create a false impression the Obama administration, for the first time, includes the number of people stopped at the border in the count of those "deported".

Politicians claim illegal aliens "live in the shadows" and play on our compassion for others by suppressing information about how illegal aliens victimize millions of Americans, take jobs, suppress wages, increase taxes, create health hazards, over-burden our schools and hospitals, etc.

The idea that illegal aliens "live in the shadows" is simply a lie created by politicians to protect the wealth and power they derive from illegal immigration.
