The word is Obama at all costs is going to grant work permits along with amnesty to millions here illegally in the United States. This is when the jobs market still has not recovered. The latest leak shows Obama plans on giving amnesty and work permits to another 4.5 million illegals and U.S. permanent resident status to over half a million imported workers currently on guest worker Visas. In a nutshell if any of this plan is true, once again the U.S. worker will get the shaft.
Doesn't it seem no matter what, which party, which President, they are determined to screw over the American worker? Yeah, seems that way to us too. Obama and the corporations who fund these politicians really must hate U.S. workers. They seem bound and determined to give American jobs to anyone but U.S. workers. This is when America just gained the same amount of jobs she had in 2007, now almost seven years ago. From this time last year, the United States has gained 2.6 million jobs, obviously not enough to employ yet another 4.5 newly minted legal workers if Obama gets his way. Tech jobs are even more obscene. Workers are brought in on temporary Visas, they are supposed to go home. Yet Obama wants to give permanent legal status to half a million of them. Now that doesn't sound so bad until once realizes all of those guest worker Visas will be suddenly freed up to pull in yet another half a million guest workers to take....you guessed it, American jobs. There are only 1.77 million computer design and related jobs in the United States, clearly not enough jobs to accommodate Americans plus the massive labor increases Obama's executive orders would bring.
The money pouring into amnesties, green cards and more foreign workers is obscene, yet the New York Times doesn't acknowledge the corporate money pushing for more cheap labor and outsourcing being at the forefront of the push:
Silicon Valley, led by Mark Zuckerberg's FWD.us, has poured in millions for amnesty legislation to secure high-tech guest-worker visas even though America has a surplus of high-tech workers. The pro-amnesty Chamber of Commerce has spent $50 million over the last two years pushing for amnesty legislation. Hotel and restaurant industry lobbies that want cheaper labor have also poured in millions. Moguls like Warren Buffett, Sheldon Adelson, and Bill Gates have called for an unlimited number of guest-worker visas. Gates and his wife Melinda have donated millions to a scholarship program for DREAMers. Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, who owns a stake in the New York Times, has funded a program to help DREAMers get jobs in America. The Ford Foundation even chipped in $2.3 million in 2013, according to the Times, to help illegal immigrants received Deferred Action under Obama's 2012 temporary amnesty program that he instituted by executive fiat.
This is incredible but then since when does D.C. do anything for main street and the U.S. worker? Poll after poll shows the American people are opposed to Obama's amnest. Obviously the American people do not matter in politics, only big money special interests do. Yet, there might be some hope. Conservatives like Senator Jeff Sessions point out the destruction of American jobs through foreign labor importation and vow to defund Obama's efforts via the budget:
The WSJ reports that the President is ‘expected to benefit businesses that use large numbers of legal immigrants, such as technology companies.’ Those changes include measures to massively expand the number of foreign workers for IT companies—measures aggressively lobbied for by IT giants like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. Yet we have more than 11 million Americans with STEM degrees who don’t have jobs in these fields. Rutgers professor Hal Salzman documented that two-thirds of all new IT jobs are being filled by foreign workers. From 2000 through today, a period of record legal immigration, all net gains in employment among the working-age have gone entirely to immigrant workers.
And now, in order to help open borders billionaires, President Obama is going to deny millions of Americans their shot at entering the middle class.
The world has turned upside down. Instead of serving the interests of the American people, the policies of President Obama and every Senate Democrat serve the needs of special interests and global CEOs who fail to understand the duty a nation owes to its own people. But the citizens of this country still hold the power, and through their voice, they can turn the country right-side up again.
There were Democrats who also tried to block Obama but generally speaking it is the Republicans who reap the benefits of the never ending illegal immigration and foreign guest worker favoritism shown by this administration. That's all kind of ironic since most Republicans will sell the U.S. worker down the river with more foreign workers and offshore outsourcing just as much as any Democrat would. The one saving grace has been the two parties fighting for the mythical Hispanic vote ended up causing gridlock on the great cheap labor flooding of the United States. Yet, one would think Democrats would get it that not supporting the U.S. worker would cause voters to stay home. They did just lose both houses of Congress due to their refusal to put the U.S. worker and middle class first. Yet in spite of the exit polls and state ballot measures of election 2014, the only concern seems to be winning the next election with new amnesty bought voters.
