Sessions Calls Out Big Business for Pushing Amnesty After Laying Off US Workers
Breitbart ^ | 18 Aug 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 08/19/2014 7:35:06 AM PDT by xzins

Companies that have recently laid off workers are scheming to get President Barack Obama to give them more guest-worker visas by executive action.

After the New York Times reported that Obama is working on crafting executive actions behind closed doors after having met with representatives from "Oracle, Cisco, Fwd.US, Microsoft, Accenture, Compete America, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce," which Politico detailed, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) blasted the White House for "actively working against the interests of the American worker."

Sessions mentioned that American politics is at "a crisis point," as companies that "are laying off current employees in droves," are meeting with "senior White House officials" to get guest-workers that will make it tougher for Americans of all backgrounds to find jobs.

"We have communities throughout America that are barely scraping by. Tens of millions of Americans are on welfare, unemployment, and public assistance," Sessions said "Yet the White House and their Senate Majority seem more concerned about large corporations, or the citizens of other countries, than about getting our own citizens back to work into stable jobs that can support a family and uplift a community.”

Obama is reportedly considering granting amnesty and work permits to millions of illegals for them to work in any (job). In addition, he may grant more guest-worker visas to high-tech firms--even though there is a surplus of American high-tech workers--and low-skilled industries, even though Americans at the bottom rungs of the economic ladder are having trouble finding jobs, which Americans supposedly will not do.

A recent Center for Immigration Studies report found that in "all 472 occupations as defined by the Department of Commerce," there were only six "majority immigrant (legal and illegal)" occupations, which means Americans were employed in the low-skilled jobs that pro-amnesty advocates say they will not do.

They are campaigning for cheap foreign labor in fields where Americans are definitely skilled, ready, and willing to work. It's a crime. Chamber of Commerce should be rejected as socialist lapdogs.

Those of us where might still be working, are being sold-out to illegal labor, even at the low end.

The country is being destroyed by multiple attacks from several angles.

Which is why I now refer to them as the ‘Chamber of Communists’. Their open borders/amnesty/work visa arguments never did hold water. It’s all bogus.

They’re run by the NWO crowd, seems to me.

FINALLY someone in power says something about how this affects US who pay our taxes. The American People and it’s culture are under attack like never before by an enemy that has completely fooled it’s base and they’re either too stupid or biased to see it or are in on it.

That meeting with Obama is right out of AS:

Mr. Thompson meets with Wesley Mouch, James Taggart, Orren Boyle, and Floyd Ferris, to name a few.

Sessions has the background and experience and belief system to be president

Sessions/Cruz or Cruz/Sessions — makes no difference to me

He does seem to be the only one who speaks out in a timely manner, probably from having the knowledge, wisdom and instincts to do the job.

that’s a great idea

The article has some of them:

Microsoft, Oracle...all the techie companies

Isn’t there a loyal American brand that competes with these jerks?

Then they just ship the jobs overseas.

Thank goodness we have Nafta, Afta, and Shafta to boom our economy and bring in great jobs (workers). /sarcasm

With all the calls for social action, why aren’t there demonstrators in front of the Chamber of Commerce offices? Why aren’t they in fear of violence instead of just law abiding small businesses in places like Ferguson?

Sessions/Cruz or Cruz/Sessions

Sessions/Cruz might be the smart way to do it. Takes any bogus talk of Cruz's citizenship off the table. If the campaign is done well, people will be ready for a US President with a lot of experience and a long consistant record of actually standing for what he believes in.

Cruz opens the door to the dems choosing another pol without a lifetime of experience. With Sessions at the top, part of the campaign can be against anyone without a long, respected track record. The dems don't have anyone in that league.

Of course it won’t be possible in all cases, but there has to be alternatives for some of the companies on that list.

I like the years of experience argument for Sessions. No matter, then, what they throw at Cruz. He won’t be the issue. But he will gain experience. As it is, he’s just a 2 year Senator. They’ll use that against him....even though it wasn’t an issue when it was Obama.

Dems will be running against Obama's record. They'd say the mistake was that Obama wasn't ready to be president, and we can't make that mistake again. And it would help hillary. Meanwhile, going with Sessions would mean the 'pubs have that issue against Booker and Warren.

Our biggest problem is the backstabbing Chamber of Commerce and other elitist/globalist lapdogs who would rather run another really bad choice (like McCain and Romney) and lose rather than give up their hold on power.

At this point, the Republican conservatives could get a lot of support from responsible blacks with a "you've been played" message.

Unfortunately it is pretty much across the board. The big business’s that support the Chamber are all looking for cheaper labor. Can’t blame them too much since they are in business to sell things and make money, but you sure can blame the politician’s that do seem to care more about foreigners and big companies than the middle and working class.

I'm glad to see Senator Sessions speaking forcefully on this issue which resonates with working people across the political spectrum. That Sessions is kind of a lone voice reveals how entrenched crony capitalism has become.

I believe the cronyists' true intent is to promote illegal immigration by insisting on linking amnesty with tightened border control. The resulting gridlock prevents increased enforcement and the status quo continues which is what they want.

The vice president must meet the eligibility requirements for president. See the Twelfth Amendment.

Even though the VP has to meet eligibility, it would take the issue off the table as something that voters cared about. The 'pub response to any questioning would be that they must be afraid to run against Sessions qualification and record, so there using a distraction.

Think it through. Sessions is the real face of change....to a candidate with respect and postive life experience.

I agree with you. Although, if they could write the amnesty bill, I'm sure they'd go along with that.

Having no ambition for the White House leaves him free to do his homework and speak it. A sincere man, without calculation.

Who IS the Chamber of Commerce today, and who highjacked it?

Shop keepers, small business and local industries have been big footed by Soros, as is my best bet, given the odd, new found clout they exhibit.

The Chamber, historically, was hardly hanging with Marxists until just lately.

Sessions is sure the lonely voice crying in the wilderness. We have a saying down here in Alabama “ Let’s nuke D.C. just make sure Sessions is safely home in Alabama”. He is so beloved here that he is running totally unopposed.

“Having no ambition for the White House leaves him free to do his homework and speak it. A sincere man, without calculation.”

Which, ironically, makes him perfect for the job. This is very much like the qualifications for a Pope. #1 requirement: You don’t want to be the Pope.

As soon as those illegals get amnesty, they will be legally eligible for TANF, foodstamps, EBT, Section 8, SCHIP, Medicaid, and Obamacare subsidies. They already get many of these benefits through illegal means and social workers looking the other way right now.
