High-tech Companies Get Obama Payoff for Amnesty Support
Why do large Corporations support Obama, Democrats and establishment Republicans in their push for Amnesty?
The answer is that when you legalize 30 million new un-skilled, uneducated, poverty-stricken and politically oppressed people, not only do they work very cheaply – middle-class and lower-middle class American workers have to compete by also working cheaper.
In a nutshell: Illegal and newly legalized labor suppresses all wages. Good for big business but bad if you’re struggling to pay a mortgage, raise a family or put kids in college alongside kids of illegals, who are entitled to just about everything you’ve worked for it seems now.
But what about big high-tech companies? Why would they support Obama, Boehner, Reid, the Chamber of Commerce and all the other folks selling your family down the road with Amnesty?
Don’t they want high-skilled, educated and innovative workers?
Funny you never see a whole lot of programmers and app developers traipsing across the desert to stand in line in Home Depot parking lots. So why on earth would giant tech and social media companies support this disaster?
Simple: A deal with the devil… We help you with your future Democrat voters and you pay us off on the backside:

The Obama administration wants to let nearly 100,000 spouses of foreigners working in high-tech fields to work here as well in a move critics say is harmful to nearly 10 million jobless Americans.
The administration also hopes to ease the process for foreign professors and researchers who are trying to extend their stays in America.
The proposed changes, announced Tuesday by Department of Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, come as high-tech companies and university officials continue pressing Congress and the Obama administration to ease restrictions that they say make it difficult to import highly skilled foreign workers.
Groups like FWD.us, created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and other tech organizations are lobbying Congress for expanded visa programs they use to hire foreign workers.
Mayorkas said the proposed rule changes keep America competitive as more countries offer incentives to attract the workers.
“The proposed rules announced today provide important support to U.S. businesses while also supporting economic growth here in the U.S.,” he said. “This enhances our country’s competitiveness to attract skilled workers from other countries.”
But critics accuse the pro-visa groups of wanting cheap labor, and say Obama should be helping U.S. citizens get jobs rather than making it easier for foreigners to expand their employment opportunities in the United States.
“The U.S. already provides businesses with 700,000 temporary guest workers every year to compete against unemployed Americans, in addition to the annual flow of 1 million permanent legal immigrants,” said Stephen Miller, a spokesman for Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who has opposed efforts to import more foreign workers.
“The administration’s unilateral decision to increase that number will hurt already-struggling American workers.”
The sick thing is that Republicans in the establishment are not just enabling Obama and the facsists – they’re pushing it, lying to us about it and believe me – they’ll get their payout too.
For all those thinking that the Republicans just need to get the majority in the Senate and they’ll fix this country’s woes – you’re a special kind of stupid.
