MLK Opposed Illegal Immigration

MLK was dead set against illegal immigration.

Propagandists within the democratic party are constantly asserting that gay marriage and illegal immigration were issues that Martin Luther King would have supported.  Both are lies.  MLK was not for gay anything and he and his wife Coretta Scott King were adamantly opposed to illegal immigration that would steal jobs from Black Americans.

In 1991, Coretta King, who had taken over her husband’s ministry after he was assassinated, wrote a letter to Orrin Hatch in 1991, that was cosigned by many other black leaders that said:

We, the undersigned members of the Black Leadership Forum, write to urge you to postpone introduction of your employer sanctions repeal legislation until we have had an opportunity to report to you what we believe to be the devastating impact the repeal would have on the economic condition of un- and semi-skilled workers—a disproportionate number of whom are African-American and Hispanic; and until we have had the opportunity to propose to you and to our Hispanic brothers and sisters, what we believe could be a number of effective means of eliminating the discrimination occasioned by employer sanctions, without losing the protection sanctions provide for U.S. workers, especially minority workers.

King’s letter to Hatch was in opposition to reducing sanctions against employers who hired illegal aliens, a bill Hatched (pun intended) by Hatch and Teddy Kennedy, that would have made it much easier to hire cheaper illegal immigrants over black American citizens.

King and the other members of the Black Leadership Forum feared that reduced sanctions would result in further discrimination against blacks and legal Hispanic citizens:

America does not have a labor shortage. With roughly 7 million people unemployed, and double that number discouraged from seeking work, the removal of employer sanctions threatens to add additional U.S. workers to the rolls and drive down wages. Moreover, the repeal of employer sanctions will inevitably add to our social problems and place an unfair burden on the poor in the cities in which most new immigrants cluster—cities which are already suffering housing shortages and insufficient human needs services.

Today, we have 24 million unemployed and underemployed Americans and we don’t have a labor shortage.  The unemployment rate for young black workers are at an incredible 41.6% and passing immigration reform and adding 11.5 million illegals to the workforce, will hurt these workers the most.  No, it’s not a civil rights issue, it’s a common sense issue.


Smith musters compelling evidence that King, unlike most contemporary African American leaders, would not have been a supporter of mass immigration and open borders:

“Before he died, King had been a big backer of Cesar Chavez, the late-Sixties farmworkers’ organizer and one of the earliest campaigners against open borders. Right after King’s death, Reverend Ralph Abernathy, his replacement as head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, marched with Chavez in a protest against illegal immigration over its suppressive effects on wages and its weakening of unions.”

  1. Excellent work, Mike. I greatly commend your effort because I currently generate more than $38,000 each month from just one simple web business! Even with just $29,000, you may start developing a reliable online income and these are just the most basic internet operations occupations.

  2. I make over thirty k a month working part-time. I kept hearing from other people telling me how much money they could make online, so I decided to find out. Well, it was all true and it completely changed my life.

    MLK did NOT support that trash or those lies!

  4. Lawrence M says:

    Louis Farrakhan or Malcolm X would be on that kind of jive and promotion of evil!

  5. Lawrence M says:

    Watch out who you listen to and associate with in these chaotic and yet to come disastrous times as many bad things are being passed around and rubbed off on others; by often just this plain internet circulation of foolishness and stupidity!

    Nice of you to bring it up! But the real underlying issue is Satan just like it is with the whole fraud pandemic and the CRT lie along with all of the global NWO manipulation going on 24/7 to conquer control and enslave humanity under one world government and religion which will be the antichrist! That is the whole deal all else is smoke and mirrors or plain old distraction to keep everyone off balance and at each other’s throats in the meantime!

    The Ukraine is not in a state of war with Russia just because of Putin or even that atheist corrupt communist government! The EU, China, and the US are all to blame as well because backdoor deals and money laundering by our many highly corrupt elected officials along with bio-weapons labs and a whole host of evil activity have been going on in the Ukraine for decades! We need to look at the big picture and see that this is all one massive con! And why else has a devil like George Soros been allowed to carry on rigging government or judicial operations on state and federal levels with so many other nefarious evil activities that he is directly involved in while being so tight with Klaus Schwab, the Clinton’s, Biden’s, Fauci, Bill Gates and on and on; all of them top criminals in the global arena but yet he walks free as a bird! We just saw how heads of state during the fraud pandemic went full tilt against the citizens with authoritarian dictator style mandates to begin the next level of this globalization screw-job that is hell-bent on having all of our heads on a platter! Who else would be behind something so massive and evil other than the Devil himself; so it’s time for anyone with or without a clue to get their asses in gear and start praying to Jesus Christ because nothing else is going to save your souls from hell!

    “Practicing the Presence of God” is a spiritual exercise that challenges us to remain focused on God during an “everyday task or chore.” Long associated with Brother Lawrence, a monk who wrote about his experiences with “Practicing the Presence,” it is a spiritual approach to life that asks us to break down barriers that distract us from God’s presence. In this article, we discuss some of the important ideas, Scripture, and thoughts from Brother Lawrence to help you better understand Practicing the Presence of God.”

    Brother Lawrence said and I quote: “That perfect resignation to God was a sure way to heaven, a way which we had always sufficient light for our conduct.”

      LM: All of these people you mention are but mortal beings and their lives can be shortened the same way that JFK’s was when he was shot by the CIA. America is still armed to the teeth and must remain that way. Taht is the only reason that those you mention have not come about in instituted “1984” policies and procedures. As I interpert it these NWO leaders of both old and new wealth are as mortal as we are and when they are looking at the wrong side of the grass their spawn take over the job. Most of the time the spawn are much worse than their parents as they have no history or caution. Their arrogance will ultimately sink their ships. We must just out weather them to pick up the pieces. My worry is that I feel the next WW will be fought and over with in a week leaving most of the world a disaster, including the USA. Except for the Revolutionary War and the Civil War we have been safe from those who have fought against us. Perhaps that is why we won the wars, our industry was not destroyed over and over again. Next war will be here and the combatents have been crossing over the southern border for decades, but in earnest since Biden took over.

      • Lawrence M says:

        David Barron; you have covered the bases as they actually exist here pretty well! Right off the bat the “welfare and illegals” issues are sinking this “USS America” very fast to ultimate doom and catastrophe the likes of which will make the “Great Depression” look like a “cakewalk!” As an uncle of mine, a self-made business man then credit union partner, all of which he did after having served in the US Army during wartime; he used to tell me as a kid that the big problem that was out on the horizon which would eventually ruin America as we’ve known it, is all the “Freebees!” That came true in spades and now with WWIII looming just over the horizon we know we aren’t going to be heading into the “Land of OZ” somewhere over the rainbow for sure, and America will be wiped out as bad or worse than some of the other major world powers; when the fury of all out nuclear war is unleashed! Putin has said as much and they focused much of their resources for decades on making that happen with highly advanced R&D Advanced weapons systems, and along now with China of the same mindset they would collectively want to incinerate us if it comes to that; the only reason they would not is if they can take ownership of our nation which China has been working on as well! Then the camps and executions would commence! Yes the enemy combatants are here already in large numbers and that is what our current leadership has set us up for and how little they think of us, as they go on violating the Constitution and all “We American People” that they took oaths of office to uphold and defend above all other considerations!

        And David mortals we all are, but somewhere along the line human beings have gotten way too big for their britches thinking they got it down pat so their arrogance has grown exponentially too each passing decade as the technology advanced which as I see it is also part of the “Devils ruse” to delude humanity into doing what he did, that snake that fell out with God thinking he could be as powerful and self-serving! “Pride and Arrogance” are a cancer which the human race has it in spades now, so that is the Achilles heel for humanity, as it’s going down for the count fast! That’s why I focus on “God Almighty and the Savior” as obviously being the “only answer there is or will ever be” as long as this world we’re in is around which isn’t going to be much longer! People continually prove as I see it “just how stupid they can be” and how “there is no limit to their stupidity!” Won’t learn from history and sure won’t learn from God even when it’s all been spelled out to them long ago; right there in front of them to study and gain wisdom from! What was that goofy movie way back; “Dumb and Dumber!”

        To the original point I think MLK had great insight and wisdom and knew these facts very well too! He was a good and great man with a genuine heart! My humble opinion not that it matters, I figure he got a one way ticket to the “Promised Land” for sure!
        God bless his soul and family.

    It has been said over and over again by the Democrats, “Never let a good crisis go to waste” instead of finding a solution to the problem they put a band-aid on it over and over and over gain. The other thing that bothers me is the fact we have so much unemployment in this nation that people that want to work practically go out and beg for jobs, taking jobs that pay anything just to stay in the system hoping for better. Others feel that even having demeaning job is better than no job. Even others feel they are so under appreciatd that they really don’t care how well they do their jobs or will act out. There seems to be a vicious circle here of making people dependent upon government to take care of them, probalby from LBJ’s statement, “If you cannot take care of yourself, your government will take care of you”. Now we are on 4th and 5th generation Welfare famlies that this is their main convern, having more and more babies to increase the size of their slice of the pie. The only relief from that cycle is to decrease the benefit every year by a certain percentage forcing those individuals to return to the work cycle. In order to do that though, we need the jobs out threre and not given to “ILLEGAL” immigrants who have not followed the rules, have committed crimes, or come here to get on the welfare rolls too. There is an old joke out there which probably has a lot of truth, these people are not illegal immigrants, they are just undocumented Democrats.

    MLK was a good man trying to do right by all and the Demonrats have tried to bastardize him for ThEIR purposes.

    • Lawrence M says:

      Don; very true and just like they try to do with anyone that isn’t sucking up to them or isn’t in precise lockstep with them; the Progressive Leftist Socialist Democrat Communist Marxist Nazi Party, the American MOTLEY CREW Government!

      I’ll tell you this; they are just what the Devil ordered to prepare people for the antichrist, as these people will believe the Lie!

  8. David says:

    MLK Jr. was adamantly opposed to gun control laws also, and was a Republican, not an anti-American Democrat as most idiots believe.

    • Lawrence M says:

      David; quite right! As usual the Marxist Nazi Democrat Party are always attempting to rewrite history or manipulate the facts to suit their own treacherous desire to totally control the narrative and We the People! That party along with the Mass Media are a huge collaborative of the worst hypocrites this country has ever seen and are dead to me! I don’t care one iota what they think or say, and I say they should be banned! Toss in the RINO conspirators with them!

      • David says:

        An informative, and short book to read is “Frederick Douglass Republicans” by K.Carl Smith, a Black man. On page #8 is a “Devious Manipulation of History,” a masterful propaganda campaign designed by the Democratic Party.

        • Lawrence M says:

          David; thank you for the pointer! I haven’t read it but will check it out now that you bring it up, sounds very affirming and truthful!
