Lady DACA: Meet the Pro-Amnesty, Bush Bureaucrat Who Became Trump’s Top Pick for DHS
BREITBART – JOHN BINDER
One week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall in August 2005, President George W. Bush consulted with his team of crisis advisers and inundated the Gulf Coast with cheap, illegal alien labor.
Bush’s August decision to lift the Davis-Bacon wage law made it very easy for contractors to hire cheap labor. Mike Chertoff, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), quickly suspended sanctions on the employers who did hire illegal aliens.
The result was another flood – this time not of water, but of illegal aliens, 30,000 of which came to the Gulf Coast to take cleanup and blue-collar construction jobs that would have otherwise gone to the local Americans who just had their livelihood picked up and swept into the Gulf of Mexico.
One member of Bush’s flood-the-labor-market crisis team was Kirstjen Nielsen, then a Special Assistant to the President for Homeland Security.
“We had been told that 270 jobs might be available, and we could have filled every one of them with men from this area, most of whom lost their jobs because of the hurricane,” Linda Swope of Complete Employment Services Inc. in Mobile, Alabama told the Washington Times in 2006. “When we told the guys they would not be needed, they actually cried … and we cried with them. This is a shame.”
