An Unfair Exchange

What a deal, what a deal!

We import illegal aliens from Mexico,while we spend the taxpayer’s money to export manufacturing jobs to….Mexico!

From CNS News

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has granted uniform contracts to VF Imagewear, Inc., an apparel company that relies on manufacturing sites in Mexico for a “significant percentage” of its occupational garments.

The latest contract with the company was awarded on Dec. 20, 2012, to make “uniform and insignia items” for the CBP at an estimated cost of $6,157,997.57, and a ceiling of $8 million.

The CBP, which is responsible for protecting America’s borders, told that items from VF Imagewear, a subsidiary of VF Corporation, are manufactured in a number of locations, “including Mexico.”

So let’s get this straight: The tax payer funded Border Patrol, one of whom’s main jobs is to prevent illegals coming up here from Mexico, a country whose government has been singularly uncooperative in helping us staunch the flow of criminal aliens both through and from their sovereign soil, allows Mexico to profit from the manufacture of their uniforms, and the taxpayer who pays for this is essentially compensating employees in the country south of the border rather than providing work for Americans in a time of obscenely high unemployment.

Meanwhile, the same illegals whom the Border Patrol is tasked to stop (while hampered by the party in power in Washington at the moment) come into the United States and take jobs cheaply at the cost of taxpaying Americans working.

What a deal, what a deal!
