Panelist: Gang of Eight Bill Will Have 'Detrimental Impact' on Blacks
Friday night, Fox News' "Hannity" held a forum of black conservative leadership. The panel was both thoughtful and lively. Among the topics discussed was the pending Senate immigration bill.
Charles Butler, of Project 21, said that illegal immigration threatens those at the lowest socioeconomic levels and in "entry-level jobs" in this country.
Butler said that legalizing 12 million illegal immigrants and allowing 33 million more guest workers will, according to studies, have a "detrimental impact on black Americans."
"Those are the issues we need to focus on," he said, noting that it is better to deal with the Senate's immigration bill before it passes in order to avert bad policy that would harm the black community.
