Obama is at it again, America. In a barely noticeable move, Obama has issued ANOTHER completely unconstitutional executive order. This one? It’s changing our immigration laws in a way you just won’t believe.
You see, Obama has changed the rules for L-1B visas. What are those? Glad you asked. Those are essentially work visas for companies that employ foreign workers. With the economy being so swell, make sense for those jobs to go to foreigners and not Americans, right?
Just wait- it gets MUCH worse.
Obama has authorized these companies to pay the same sweatshop wages they make overseas. One company even kept workers on at $1.25 hourly – and they were living here, in America! Can you live on that? Cause I sure can’t. Details of the atrocity:
Obama intends to make it easier to bring more foreign guest workers to the United States — likely at significant cost to workers already here — by loosening the rules governing something known as the L-1B visa program. Under the program, a multinational company with offices in the United States can move workers from abroad to live and work in the U.S. for as long as five years in what is known as an intra-company transfer.
There are almost no rules concerning what those workers can be paid, so there is no barrier to a company firing American employees and bringing in workers from foreign facilities to replace them at much lower pay.
Companies who transfer workers to the U.S. through an L-1B visa have to show that those workers bring some sort of “specialized knowledge” to the job — that is, they have particular knowledge that would be hard, if not impossible, to find elsewhere in the United States. Obama plans to broaden the definition of “specialized knowledge” so much that it could conceivably used to cover just about any foreign worker a company wants to bring here.
…In addition, the president seeks to lower the bar by which Citizenship and Immigration Services adjudicators make an overall judgment on L-1B applications. An applicant, or petitioner, does not have to prove that there is a need for an L-1B worker. Instead, he just has to make a case that an adjudicator can decide is “probably” true. From the Obama rules: “Even if an officer has some doubt about a claim, the petitioner will have satisfied the standard of proof if it submits relevant, probative, and credible evidence…that leads to the conclusion that the claim is ‘more likely than not’ or ‘probably’ true.”
Sounds like we have some super specialized workers coming in at $1.25 an hour to sew some crappy overpriced clothes for Old Navy. Or, Obama is once again acting against the will of the people and in his best interests of serving our enemies. You’re amazing, Obama. Thanks for leaving us a giant pile of crap to clean up in 2016.
