Senators Continue to Press for ”Back to the Future” Guest Worker Visas Increase

Hollywood produced the last sequel to “Back to the Future” 22 years ago. Thanks to Senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Scott Brown (R-Mass.) Congress may soon fill the void with “Back to the Future: The E-3 Guest Worker Visa.” This production will star 10,500 new Irish guest workers eager to fill American jobs and supporting cast made up of unlimited numbers of spouses and children (up to age 21).

While the original “Back to the Future” may have been a pleasant trip down memory lane to America of the 1950s, the bill being (S. 1983) promoted by Schumer and Brown is far from benign. Aside from the obvious fact that there is no need for an additional 10,500 guest workers in the current economy, the legislation marks a regression back to an immigration policy for which there should be no nostalgia. The legislation is designed to benefit people of a single nationality: the Irish. Irish immigrants may have a powerful lobby, and they may flex some political muscle in New York and Massachusetts, but an immigration policy that gives preference to people based on their country of origin is a path America must never follow again.

FAIR is sharply critical of our current immigration policy, but we’ve always opposed reforms that discriminate in favor or against any group or nationality. We need to change our policies so that they serve America’s environmental, societal, and economic interests today and into the future. That means a policy where immigrants are selected on their merits, not on their country of origin or who they happen to be related to. Moreover, the bill Schumer and Brown are promoting will inevitably result in other ethnic groups demanding special visas in the future.

Our Government Relations department has put together a great summary of this bill and I urge you to take a look at it and familiarize yourself with this piece of legislation.

We’ve seen this picture before and it wasn’t a good one. We don’t need a sequel.

    I DISAGREE with FAIR on this one. The U.S should try to get immigrants from developed countries with a cultural and historical link to the U.S. Culturally the United States is an extension of Europe and we should make it easier for European immigrants to come to our country. YES, we should have an immigration policy that discriminates based on national origin; people from 3rd world countries or culturally dissimilar countries should generally not be allowed in.

      I agree. When we opened the immigration doors to the third world in 1964 the mess we are in now is the result of that mistake. Our tax dollars are being wasted on helping to support millions of poor that should never have been allowed into the US in the first place. And all of us will pay forever for the mistakes of a few deceased politicians.

      Chad: Our immigration policy should never grant anything of nature to one race/national origin; that would be racist in of itself. We, America, should be focused on drastically reducing immigration. Our current infrastructure and budgets are stretched beyond belief. Our national unemployment is near 9% (reportedly much higher). People seriously believe we should continue importing labor and students?

    We have to get rid of the deaf Congressmen/women who refuse to listen to the voice of the people. Send the illegals back and close the borders. Do your job and stop making excuses and costing American Citizens their livelihoods, their homes, their retirement, their families togetherness, etc. Congress can go live in a tent in the West for a month and then tell us that they know best! Stop all benefits to Congress and no more raises. This will help to offset the cost to send the illegals back. Then, make e-verify mandatory which in itself will send illegals back on their own to the jobs they left to come here. Get rid of the deaf and dumb so-called public servants.

    And compelling new evidence that H-1B visas for foreign workers lower the pay of information technology workers in this country. Critics say the report, by NYU’s Stern School of Business and Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, proves that corporate elites are importing cheap overseas labor simply to lower the wages of American workers. We’ll have a special report.

    Study: Foreign-born workers gain 656,000 jobs

    By Morgan Lee

    Immigrants have gained more than 600,000 jobs since the official end of the Great Recession in June 2009, according to a newly released study.

    Native-born workers fared far worse, shedding 1.5 million jobs, according to an analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center of U.S. Census Bureau and Department of Labor data.

    Foreign-born workers picked up 656,000 jobs over the 12-month period, driving down that population’s unemployment rate half a point to 8.7 percent. Immigrant workers make up 15.7 percent of the labor force.

    The gains, however, were not nearly enough to make up for 1.1 million jobs lost among immigrants from second-quarter 2008 through second-quarter 2009. And immigrants experienced a sharp decline in median weekly earnings — down 4.5 percent., compared to a loss of less than 1 percent for the native born.

    “The unemployment rate for immigrants is still more than double the rate prior to the recession when it stood at 4.0 percent in the second quarter of 2007,” the study said.

    Released on Friday, the report was not able to separately identify illegal immigrants because that status was not recorded in the source data. It found that Hispanic immigrants experienced the largest drop in earnings of all ethnic and racial groups.

    The report focused on the period from the second quarter of 2008 to the second quarter of 2009, when most of the job losses during the recession occurred, and the subsequent 12 months that marked the first year of recovery from the recession.

    The danger, as Washington Post economics columnist Robert Samuelson argues, is that of “importing poverty” in the form of a new underclass—a permanent group of working poor.

    “We could cut unemployment in half simply by reclaiming the jobs taken by illegal workers,” said Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, co-chairman of the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus. “President Obama is on the wrong side of the American people on immigration. The president should support policies that help citizens and legal immigrants find the jobs they need and deserve rather than fail to enforce immigration laws.”

    “Obama’s rejection of any serious jobs program is part of a conscious class war policy. Two years after the financial crisis and the multi-trillion dollar bailout of the banks, the administration is spearheading a campaign by corporations to sharply increase the exploitation of the working class, using the “new normal” of mass unemployment to force workers to accept lower wages, longer hours, and more brutal working conditions.” WSWS.ORG

    “The principal beneficiaries of our current immigration policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at substandard wages for low-end work. Harvard economist George Borjas estimates that American workers lose $190 billion annually in depressed wages caused by the constant flooding of the labor market at the low-wage end.” Christian Science Monitor

      A sure place to start in stopping the depression of wages is to begin with the CEO and downward through the ranks of the VIPs. Let us demand a salary for the CEO of any company to be reduced to a figure under the $900,000 mark and no perks. If this be the case, we will very quickly see an end to salary depression of the mid-lower class. As we all know, this is a strategy to control the masses (we are no longer considered citizens or people. We are now called “the masses”) Assuming that we don’t count, we might unite and stop paying taxes. Then, we could re-build this nation on the Constitution as written and rid the nation of the Deaf and Dumb, bribed, poor excuses of so-called public servants. They ALL have to go.

        Jacqueline: You mention

        “demand a salary for the CEO of any company to be reduced to a figure under the $900,000 mark and no perks” and then mention “Then, we could re-build this nation on the Constitution as written…”. Where in the US Constitution does it state we can/should limit one’s salary? You have a few choices in terms of limiting a CEO’s salary:
        1. Purchase stock and vote!
        2. Do not purchase the companie’s products and hit them in their bottom line!
        3. Continue pushing your marxist agenda.
        4. Relocate to a non-competitve, marxist country and denounce your American citizenship; we don’t need you.

    The American people, namely ‘ the increasing fathomless numbers of THE TEA PARTY” must unseat all radical Politicians, Governors, mayors, judges police chiefs and every elected official, city manager and councilman who are anti-sovereignty and pamper illegal aliens with taxpayer dollars. Their oaths of allegiance are meaningless to them as they have shown by their pro-illegal immigration agenda’s. Antonio Villaraigosa, Los Angeles county mayor, the way he demonizes pro-sovereignty, anti-illegal alien activists should be one of the first to be recalled, as he answers to a government south of our border? Both political parties have been complicit in the flood of illegal migrants and immigrants that is estimated to be well over 20 million, not the numbers calculated by the US census bureau? Our only chance of stopping this scattering pestilence is to support the business mandatory E-Verify program and the Birthright citizenship Act that must be introduced in Congress right now.

    Frank Sharry, Founder and Director of pro-amnesty group America’s Voice and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) went was caught up in a verbal confrontation in The Huffington Post. Sharry calls Chairman Smith’s mandatory E-verify bill “anti-immigrant legislation” and “unworkable and expensive bureaucracy.” Sharry claims the bill would “grant the federal government the authority to approve or disapprove every new hire in America.” That is how it should be, and rejection from being hired. A relatively simple solution that guarantees foreigners begin Mitt Romney’s ‘self-deportation’ antidote, better known as Attrition through Enforcement. Of Course Sharry doesn’t individualize between a legal immigrant and illegal immigrant as it should be acknowledged or the Liberal media.

    Rep. Smith defended E-Verify by saying the web-based program “quickly identifies illegal workers and protects jobs for citizens by checking Social Security numbers and ID of newly hired employees” and describes E-Verify as “free, quick and easy to use.”

    Rep. Smith cites a Rasmussen poll which found that 82% of likely voters think all businesses should be required to use E-Verify. Sharry, this open border individual and is now so frustrated and angry that millions of businesses have chosen to use E-Verify–both voluntary and state mandatory, that this far left progressive is reduced to name calling.

    Sen. Lamar Smith’s E-Verify, “The Legal Workforce Act” is just tipping the scales and only needs a little more momentum from American voters to get this bill into Congress. The potential law has 74 co-sponsors and needs a final push of only 26 more lawmakers with a backbone; four of the co-sponsors are Democrats.

    Join the TEA PARTY, as the refugees from every other delusional political voter and vote a Tea Party senate and house into office, displacing all those politicians and elected officers who protect illegal migrants and immigrants and betrayed the lawful U.S. Populace. These old party agenda is profit, votes and exploitation, and are in collusion with churches, unions, foreign governments and radical organizations and special interest groups. Illegal immigration has been forced on taxpayers through ‘UNFUNDED MANDATES’. These acts include free health care, free schooling, and has attributed to the loss of safety-net for Americans; coerced on citizens and lawful residents by liberal influenced courts.

    Frosty Wooldridge said in his latest article:

    Every indicator that our country is failing shows up daily with 15 million unemployed, 7 million underemployed, 46 million Americans subsisting on food stamps, $700 billion annual trade deficit, $15 trillion national debt, endless wars that cost $15 billion monthly and thousands of kids dropping out of high school daily. I have said it before: illiteracy defines a third world country. With 42 million functionally illiterate Americans, we are well on our way. Nonetheless, Congress pumps over 125,000 immigrants into this country every 30 days. I am beyond exasperated as to why and how we can do this to our country.

    Learn more at NumbersUSA, how the government is defying the U. S. Constitution and the laws that govern us. Investigate even more the terrible penalty our nation pays, for unending spending on foreign nationals by Googling—“AMERICAN PATROL.” Seek out your politician either by phone at 202-224-3121, or go their office in person. Proclaim to them they are–OUT–if they vote for any kind of AMNESTY, disguised as Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Remember–this is not about any racial make-up, nationality or color, its strictly about illegal immigration, that America cannot afford any more. Even if your from Europe, the Pacific rim, Africa, Canada or any South American country; if you illegal, they should be detained and deported.

    When the States of Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, Indiana and South Carolina is being financially crippled by the illegal alien invaders, it is undeniable that something smells of government corruption. These states have spoken out on behalf of their taxpayers, especially the border state of Arizona. Using fake ID, of exceptionally good quality unlawful nationals are able to qualify for food stamps, WICC and other public assistance programs. It is way past time that many incompetent administrations stopped this fraud? The only possible way is to issue every eligible US citizen and others able to qualify a National ID card, which can be substantiated?

    Our Social Security numbers and other documentation has been compromised, as seen in the overwhelming amount of victims that is unceasing spreading across our nation.

    Important: Voter fraud does exist and our only chance of fair and impartial elections, from now until the November Presidential is every citizen show official Identification. Non citizens have been registered to vote and will again in all electoral cycles, which could cause major issues in a close vote. Fake ID has been around for years, but is more prevalent now than ever before?
