Business Lobby Pushes for Amnesty As Layoffs Continue

“This week, the pharmaceutical giant Merck announced it will cut 8,500 jobs in an effort to remain competitive in a rapidly changing drug industry. Earlier this year, Merck announced plans to cut 7,500 jobs, bringing the total of workers let go to 16,000. In all, Merck intends to lay off one out of every five of its employees,” notes the Examiner.

“At the same time, top Merck officials are urging Congress to loosen the nation’s immigration laws to allow more foreign workers into the United States. In a Sept. 10 letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Merck Executive Vice President for Human Resources Mirian Graddick-Weir urged that the U.S. admit more high- and low-skilled immigrants to “address the reality that there is a global war for talent” and to ‘align our nation’s immigration policies with its workforce needs at all skill levels to ensure U.S. global competitiveness.'”

He also warned it could lead to illegal aliens entering the country from nations associated with terrorism.”

“In a black eye for one of the state’s more liberal leaning newspapers, a Montana State University student who was profiled as an illegal immigration “Cinderella Story” has been arrested on charges of repeatedly raping a teen girl over a three-month period. Clemente Garcia Arciga, 33, who was profiled in a September 2012 series of Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports entitled, “The Immigrants Among Us,” is being held at the Gallatin County Detention center on multiple felony sex charges,” Mediatrackers.com writes.
