Once again, the liberal left is betraying the actual citizens of this country… and their idiotic party members are celebrating the very traitors to their own welfare.
Earlier this month, 31 senators, sitting on BOTH sides of the aisle, asked the Department of Homeland Security to increase the use of outsourcing visas so that additional foreign workers could enter the United States and hold jobs in American companies — rather than hiring U.S. workers, via Breitbart.
The 31 senators who wrote the request are: Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), John Cornyn (R-TX), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Chris Coons (D-DE), John Barrasso (R-WY), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Susan Collins (R-ME), Tom Carper (D-DE), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Patty Murray (D-WA), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Angus King (I-ME), Tim Scott (R-SC), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Richard Burr (R-NC), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), James Lankford (R-OK), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), and Bob Casey (D-PA).
The request was made because some American-owned companies are complaining that hiring citizens is too much work. They claim that low-level jobs — such as restaurant cleanup and landscaping — are better done by immigrants who already have experience in the field.
Even though recruitment consultants have been hired in order to help business owners find qualified American workers, employers are still throwing a fit. Apparently, having to train citizens for these jobs has been a strain.
This move to increase the number of working visas allowed is coming only shortly after the GOP reduced the H-2B visa program from 264,000 visas down to 66,000 visas. Now, if this new request goes through, that number could easily double.
The H-2B program is similar to the the H-1B visa program — a program which allows upwards of 650,000 immigrants to take jobs that should be held by Americans. Specifically, jobs that would have gone to our undergraduates. And that number will only increase if these senators have their way.
Many of these senators, along with the business groups who are pushing them forward, also support larger amnesty toward illegals. This is due to the hope that they can get away with paying illegal immigrant workers less than citizens. However, We the People have already spoken out against this train of thought — and overall political support for these goals has dropped dramatically in the past few months.
After all, one of the reasons we voted for Donald Trump was because of his “buy American, hire American” campaign. We the People WANT our workers to be American citizens!
The fact that these business owners are pushing our senators to hire immigrants for jobs that SHOULD be given to Americans is sickening. And the fact that 31 of our senators actually moved to request this change be made is discouraging.
It’s no secret that our college-age kids are suffering. Entry-level and low-level jobs are hard to come by in our country in its current state. And adding MORE immigrants into the equation is just going to make matters worse.
We can only hope that the brave business owners who are going forward with hiring American stay strong and continue to fight the good fight. Change is hard, but it will be worth it in the end. In the meantime, we patriots can show our support by only patronizing businesses that hire American.
