COVID-19 May 2020 Update:
With unemployment skyrocketing due to the Wuhan Virus should there be ANY immigration allowed until Americans are back to work?
On May 7, it was reported that coalition of Republican senators and congressmen are asking President Trump to expand his recent executive order to suspend visas for foreign workers seeking employment in the United States while more than 33 million Americans are unemployed. In letters to Trump, Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Lance Gooden (R-TX), Mo Brooks (R-AL), and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) request that Trump prevent unemployed Americans from being forced to compete against foreign workers at a time of record joblessness spurred by the Chinese coronavirus crisis.
The senators letter stated:
“That suspension should, at a minimum, include H-2B visas (nonagricultural seasonal workers), H-1B visas (specialty occupation workers), and the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program (extension of foreign student visas after graduation). We also urge you to suspend the EB-5 immigrant visa program, effective immediately. [Emphasis added]
There are millions of high school and college students who, if not for the coronavirus pandemic, would be walking across a graduation stage in front of their families and friends over the next few weeks. Instead of celebrating their hard work, most will be receiving their diplomas in the mail while worrying about whether they will be able to find a job in this market. For many high school graduates and college students, they will spend the next few weeks at home making tough decisions about delaying or foregoing college this fall due to their limited family resources. There is no reason why these young people, especially, should not have access to seasonal, nonagricultural work such as summer resort employment or landscaping before those positions are given to imported foreign labor under the H-2B program.”
Immigration is a major issue again in the 2020 elections and there are many different concerns Americans including illegal immigration, border security, refugee resettlements, employer based H1B Visas that replace or outsource American jobs, and the massive hidden costs of illegal immigration.
President Trump has had many successes without any cooperation from Democrats including $5 Billion to fund building the southern border wall and negotiated a deal with Mexico for border enforcement.
In early 2020, the Supreme Court ruled that there must be proof that an immigrant will not be a public burden.
COST of Immigrations:
This article is a good primer on illegal immigration costs:
Your taxpayer dollars are footing the spiraling costs of illegal immigration !
Refugee resettlement costs?
The following site provides the US Government overview of how the process works. Unfortunately, the “Voluntary Agencies” are paid extremely well for each refugee but local communities are NOT reimbursed for the increased burden on schools, welfare, healthcare, law enforcement, etc.
President Trump issued an Executive Order in 2019 that state and local communities must be consulted for resettlement but many governors have not embraced local communities having a voice. An Obama judicial appointee issued a stay on that order in January of 2020.
Sometimes legal immigration has loop holes, abuses, and lack of government oversight.
For instance, a F1 or OPT VISA enabled foreign student comes to the US and never returns home. For instance an employer can hire them post graduation and the Federal Govt pays their IRS taxes for a year and then they get their VISA status changed to H1 where companies outsource their US Citizen jobs to foreign nationals via the H1B Visa, etc!
Extract from a NY Times article:
“Congress and multiple Administrations have inadvertently created a highly lucrative business model of bringing in cheaper H-1B workers to substitute for Americans. There are mainframe-sized loopholes built into the H-1B program’s design – the statutory law, regulations, administrative law, and policy guidance – and a complete disinterest on the part of multiple Administrations in enforcing the current rules, however weak they may be. Some of these loopholes are intentional, some are not, but they all add up to a system that encourages employers to exploit the H-1B program for cheap labor. Given the extraordinarily high profits involved in using guest workers instead of Americans, it should surprise no one that many employers are taking advantage of this business model and lobbying to expand it.”
Think it will never happen to YOUR job after you investing many years in school and doing a great job?
Walmart outsourced almost 600 accounting jobs in Charlotte in 2019 !
A looming issue is Senate Bill S386 which effectively increases the Green Cards for India being pushed for passage without a public record vote! This bill does NOT support President’s Trumps America First Agenda. Call or write our Senators and the WhiteHouse.
Racial Discrimination in 2020 – Class Action Lawsuits have been filed by American against the big outsourcing companies because the predominantly Indian management and HR departments will only hire or promote South Asians.
The establishment U.S. media has failed to follow the huge impact of college graduate outsourcing on the U.S. economy and technology development, just as it failed to follow the transfer of the U.S manufacturing sector to China.
Many intentional and unintentional abuses and loopholes create a situation where a single non-citizen can ultimately bring extended families of siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. This is referred to “chain migration”.
Anchor Baby situation – Per WikiPedia:
“There has been a growing trend, especially amongst Asian and African visitors from Hong Kong, China, South Korea, Taiwan and Nigeria to the United States, to make use of “Birth Hotels” to secure US citizenship for their child and leave open the possibility of future immigration by the parents to the United State.”.
Democrat Strategy to Handcuff ICE and DHS also known as
“The New Way Forward Act”
The absolute worst immigration reform has been proposed by Democrats in the form of House Bill 5383 >>> https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/5383/text
This bill basically makes it ILLEGAL for DHS and ICE to deport any Illegal Imigrant convicted of a Felony!
Tucker Carlson his Feb 7 Fox show reviewed this legislation on his Feb 7 show: >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wMntDFfAhQ
Per Tucker “Don’t let the name fool you – their way “forward” for America completely blurs the distinction between a citizen and a noncitizen, making U.S. citizenship meaningless, turning illegal immigrants into a victim class.”
“The legislation is sponsored by 44 House Democrats, including Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. At roughly 4,400 words, it’s almost exactly as long as the U.S. Constitution,” Carlson said.
“A paper in California agrees:
“Under this legislation, the criminals are the victims, law enforcement is illegitimate, and the only solution is to get rid of both”
Think it could never happen? If the Democrats win in 2020 it absolutely could pass ! Just look at the crazy legislation proposed or passed by the Virginia Democrats after taking control in 2019 including post birth “abortion”, gun control, etc.
