Zuckerberg Lobby Group Pushes for Tech Guest Workers

“Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us, which was formed to lobby Congress to pass amnesty legislation, sent a letter signed by more than 100 Chicago high-tech executives to the Illinois GOP congressional delegation calling for immigration reform legislation that would result in an increase in the number of high-tech visas,” Breitbart News says.

“There is no empirical evidence to support the notion that America has a shortage of high-tech American workers, but that has not stopped the high-tech lobby from insisting on legislation that would double or triple the number of visas and guest-worker permits, which the Congressional Budget Office determined would be a contributing factor to lowering the wages of American workers.”

Cheap Labor Lobby Wants Action This Year

“As I’ve been reporting, there’s a rising sense that if House Republicans don’t act by summer on immigration reform, the window for action could close for good. If nothing happens by August recess, the pressure on Obama to act unilaterally could become overwhelming, and any executive action will likely make legislative reform even less likely, perhaps postponing it until at least 2017,” says the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent.

“Now even Republican-aligned constituencies who want reform are concluding the same thing. They are growing increasingly alarmed that they are at risk of getting cut out of the process — and their interests badly damaged — as the best chance to reform the immigration system in years is now in serious danger of slipping away for the foreseeable future.”

Catholic Push for Amnesty Includes Border Mass

“A delegation of Catholic leaders from across the United States visited Arizona’s border with Mexico on Monday and Tuesday to call for overhauling the nation’s immigration policy,” USA Today writes.

“At a Mass held under the shadow of the border fence Tuesday morning, Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the archbishop of Boston, called on Congress for comprehensive immigration reform this year.”

    The only problem with Breibart is their big supporters of Ted Cruz who wanted about 320,000 tech workers but they support any Tea Party type that against low skilled immigration but not high skilled immigration. that’s why Conservative groups suck big time.

      I think you had better go back and read and re read the policies and beliefs of the Tea Party Organization!!!! At least that is not what we stand for!!!!

    SUPPOSEDLY, tech guest workers are hired because Americans cannot be found for those jobs, and the “guest” workers are supposed to go home at some point. Yet, what if a “guest” worker fathers or bears a child in the U.S.? Since the child becomes a U.S. citizen automatically, due to misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, it seems that the “guest” worker is here to stay. Do you have facts and stats on that?

      They are dumbing down our kids in school so much that they won’t be able to wash dishes when they graduate!!! The new “COMMON CORE” they are teaching in school is a disgrace. My mother went to the 3rd grade, was born in 1900 in the mountains of Virginia, where there wasn’t a law where kids had to go to school. Her dad kept her home to work in the fields, but when she died in 1988 she could still write a letter you could read!!!! Kids today graduate and can’t read, write or spell!!!!! The GOVERNMENT needs to get out of our bedrooms, our house, our schools and the TEACHERS UNION needs to go out of business if they don’t clean up their corrupt mess!! It is OK for a teacher to look at PORN while he is teaching KIDS…and they won’t fire him…THEY protect teachers like this!!

      There is a nutritionist working at a school and telling the school what kind of food they should be feeding their students, kinda like MRS. OBAMA (like she knows anything about anything except how to spend money) telling the kids what to eat, (and they threw most of it away) the lady sat in the break room and ate PEANUT BUTTER CUPS and drank MOUNTAIN DEW and was about 50 LBS over weight. That’s the kind of people who is running the show!!

    Is there anything that reeks of hypocrisy more than the Catholic church calling for amnesty? They fight birth control in these third world countries, people have children they cannot feed, and then it’s OUR problem to take care of them? Talk about forcing your religion on someone.

    At least some of the media is catching on to the “record” deportations nonsense this administration’s supporters love to proclaim. A Tribune Newspapers story by Brian Bennett noted: “Expulsions of people who are settled and working in the US have fallen steadily since his first year in office and are now down by more than 40%.”, and he points out that the record numbers are mostly previously uncounted “border crossers”. “If all removals were tallied, the total sent back to Mexico each year would have been far higher under those previous administration than it is now.”

    “If you are a run of the mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero-it’s just highly unlikely to happen,” John Sandweg, until recently the acting director of ICE, said in an interview.

    And those in country removals will likely be even less in the future because deportation from the interior is proceeded by an arrest and what can be years of court hearings. Those arrest figures are way down.
