Poll Shows Majority Don’t Want More Foreign Workers

“A new poll shows that a large majority of likely voters nationwide do not support an influx of new foreign workers, complicating the prospects of immigration reform in the House. Opponents of the sweeping immigration reform bill passed by the Senate in June are focused on the nation’s 7.4 percent unemployment rate as a potential stumbling block for the legislation,” The Hill reported.

“A survey commissioned by NumbersUSA, a group opposed to increased immigration rates, shows 44 percent of likely voters want the government to reduce the number of permanent work visas issued. About 10 million new immigrants receive such work permits over the course of a decade under current rates.”

Zuckerberg, Hatch Hold Pro-Amnesty Roundtable

“Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s political advocacy group, FWD.us, is hosting a roundtable discussion on immigration reform Thursday in Utah that will feature the state’s senior senator, Orrin Hatch,” The Hill reported.

“The focus of the roundtable is the economic need for the U.S. to revamp its immigration laws, according to FWD.us, which was co-founded by Zuckerberg and former college roommate Joe Green earlier this year. In addition to Hatch, executives from Utah-based tech firms and investors will be on hand to participate in the discussion.”

    More propaganda from Zuckerberg, the same guy who had to pay out huge settlements because he reneged on the agreements with those who helped him launch Facebook in college, including his roommate, who provided much of the original seed money. Zuckerberg then cut him out and gave him a certain percentage of the stock. Without the roommate realizing that Zuckerberg could issue unlimited stock and it drove the roommate’s stock down to a fraction of a percentage point.

    Zuckerberg wants to make more money by bringing in workers on H1B visas. And he doesn’t care who he allies himself with, which is why his support among liberals and progressives is puzzling. He’s just another billionaire out for himself, his “man of the people” T shirts aside.

      The issuing of any kind of visas should be stopped until our government learns how to keep track of the people who “overstay” their visa, or never show up for the schools they are suppose to attending. Terrorist and criminals are here pretending to be students who act like they are going to college or looking for a better life.
