Obama and the GOP Establishment hate American workers. That’s certainly what the latest round of numbers on immigration and immigrant work permits shows.
At least 3 million foreign nationals were granted work permits, work visas, and green cards in 2013, with most being granted to individuals from Mexico, China, and India …
That was 2013. The numbers aren’t published for 2014 yet but they’re looking dismal.
… recent statistics provided to Congress reveal that work permits continued to be issued at record numbers …
This includes about 1 million green cards with work authorization, 1 million employment-based nonimmigrant visas for foreign workers, and 1.2 million work-permit authorizations for foreign nationals.
You can bet the numbers will go up from that 2.2 million.
Where in the world are those jobs coming from?
American workers, that’s where.
A record 94,610,000 Americans were not in the American labor force last month — an increase of 579,000 from August — and the labor force participation rate reached its lowest point in 38 years, with 62.4 percent of the U.S. population either holding a job or actively seeking one.
Over one-third of Americans don’t have jobs and have given up looking for one in the O’conomy. Your neighbors – and maybe you – aren’t working and can’t find work while the Obama administration and the Republican leadership in Congress are handing out work permits to foreign workers like they were CrackerJacks’ prizes.
Companies like Disney, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and dozens of other organizations that make up the core support for Obama and the Democrats are firing U.S. workers at record rates and hiring immigrants with work visas who will work for a fraction of the cost of U.S. workers.
Bay Area CEOs say imported experts are key to Silicon Valley success. In the program, foreign workers are employed by the sponsoring company for up to six years. During that time, the H1-B holders may start the long process of applying for permanent-resident green cards.
Critics say the program is a mild form of indentured servitude.
These are NOT “jobs American’s won’t do” in fact, in many cases Americans are specifically excluded from the recruiting pool or they’re laid off after they train their immigrant replacements.
What could get self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders and rock-ribbed Republican Jim Inhofe to agree? The two senators have teamed up in their support for an investigative enquiry into the billion-dollar utility Southern California Edison, which has been firing American tech workers and replacing them with lower-paid foreign workers brought here through the controversial H-1B visa program.
All the while, American college graduates are carrying hundreds of thousands of dollars in student load debt from college degrees that were supposed to assure their success, and if they’re lucky they’re working as a barista at Starbucks.
Obama, the entire Democratic Party, and the Republican Establishment – Paul Ryan especially – are complicit in this mess. If you want to know a big reason why there’s a big groundswell of love for Donald Trump, look no farther than this.
