  • Immigration reform would rebuild the American working class

    08/07/2017 12:10:22 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 10 replies
    Is it outlandish to say that the welfare of Americans should come before the welfare of potential immigrants in the actions of the American government? No. Of course not. It is reasonable, rational and what almost every other country does without all the name-calling we get from the progressive left in this country.

  • Keep America Safe by Simplifying Legal Immigration System

    Once again, our legal immigration is under well-deserved scrutiny after it was revealed that one of the San Bernardino shooters came to the US legally on K-1 fiancee visa. The US House of Representatives rushed out a new bill to impose restrictions on a visa waiver program. It's a step in the right direction but this kind one-off, reactive approach towards immigration is the root cause of our broken immigration system. Our legal immigration system is so complex today that it can't keep America safe. The US immigration laws are some of the most complex laws we have. As a...
  • Book Review: ‘Sold Out’, by Michelle Malkin and John Miano

    Breitbart ^ | 2 Dec 2015 | John Hayward
    [...] Malkin, who has the authorial voice throughout most of the book, describes the vaunted H-1B visa program as "the grandfather of all American worker sellouts," implemented by "political tricks, Beltway influence peddlers, and legislative corruption behind the program." Open-borders ideologues and special interests desperate for cheap labor have so thoroughly obscured the issue that even many immigration skeptics don't realize there are many other programs for VIP immigrants... and, as Malkin shows, all of them are outrageously abused. The easiest immigration myth to destroy is the absurd contention that America lacks enough native STEM graduates and computer experts to...

    Sara Blackwell, the Florida attorney representing the former Disney workers that were replaced by foreign workers told Breitbart News Daily that there are 1,200 Americans in New York who will suffer the same fate as the Disney workers."Right there in New York, 1,200 Americans are training their replacements" Blackwell said. Adding that it's also, "happening at AT&T right now." [...]This week, she filed a complaint with the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on behalf of the former workers alleging that they are victims of national origin discrimination."I think that it's an immigration reform issue, but more than that it's...

    Metromode ^ | 10/15/2015 | Douglas J. Guth
    A century ago the Rust Belt was the country's industrial heartland, with cities like Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Detroit innovating manufacturing processes that drew, among others, large numbers of European and Latin immigrants. When industrial decline eliminated well-paid blue-collar jobs, entire families of new Americans left for more foreign-friendly metropolises to find better work opportunities and living conditions. Today, many of these once-dominant industrial cities are taking steps to attract immigrants and refugees as a way to reverse a half-century of population decline. Welcoming groups in Cleveland, Dayton, Detroit and St. Louis promote immigrant integration within the region, while public officials...

    698K Native-Born Americans Lost Their Job In August: Why This Suddenly Is The Most Important Jobs Chart After the Fed admitted over a year ago that the US unemployment rate (which in 2012 was supposed to be a rate hike "threshold" once it hit 6.5% and is now at 5.1%) has become irrelevant in a country where a record 94 million people have left the labor force, and with the Fed poised to hike rates even though US hourly wages have not only not increased for the past 7 years, but for the vast majority of the labor force continue...

    Siddharth Jaganath wanted to return to India after earning his master’s degree at Texas’ Southern Methodist University. Instead, he built a new life in the U.S. over a decade, becoming a manager at a communications technology company and starting a family in the Dallas suburb of Plano. “You start growing your roots and eventually end up staying here,” the 37-year-old said. His path is an increasingly common one: Immigrants from China and India, many with student or work visas, have overtaken Mexicans as the largest groups coming into the U.S., according to U.S. Census Bureau research released in May.

    At Bloomberg, Sahil Kapur explains that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 96% disagrees with Donald Trump about legal immigration: Though Cruz’s get-tough attitude on illegal immigration certainly matches Trump’s, the two men differ vastly on policies involving legal immigration. While the real estate mogul’s plan calls for a swath of protectionist measures to curb legal immigration, Cruz has championed anexpansion of legal immigration, arguing it would help the economy. During the 2013 immigration debate, the Texas senator proposed an amendment to the comprehensive “gang of eight” Senate bill that he boasted would “dramatically increas[e]” the annual limit on H-1B skilled guest...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker acknowledged in a CNN interview that in the past he had expressed support for a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, but said that he wasn't talking about amnesty at the time. In an interview aboard his campaign trailer that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Dana Bash pressed Walker about his shift from somebody who once said a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants "made sense" to a presidential candidate talking about restrictions on legal immigration. She asked whether such shifts undermined his pitch to voters that he's somebody who stands up for...

    The Week ^ | April 28, 2015 | Jeff Spross
    Last Monday, Scott Walker, Wisconsin's Republican governor and a presumed GOP presidential hopeful, kicked the hornets' nest that is the immigration debate. He told Glenn Beck's radio show that America needs to "make decisions about a legal immigration system that's based on, first and foremost, protecting American workers and American wages," and that this concern should be "at the forefront of our discussion going forward." Walker's comments are significant because they're something of a reversal for him, but also because they break with the "legal-immigration-good, illegal-immigration-bad" orthodoxy of the GOP establishment. Lumping both forms of immigration together as equally questionable...

    Conservative HQ ^ | April 23, 2015 | George Rasley, CHQ Editor
    The battle lines of the 2016 Republican primaries are being formed more quickly than many of the establishment media pundits seem to realize and one of the first issues to form a fissure in the field and to, surprisingly, put two candidates with different bases in the Party apparently on the same side are immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens. That Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio should end up as the leading pro-amnesty and pro-expanding legal immigration is unsurprising. During a stop in New Hampshire “gringo aplatanado” Jeb Bush arrogantly referred to his plan to grant amnesty to illegal aliens...

    What began as a banner day for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in his quest to secure his party’s presidential nomination on Monday ended as a unique disaster. According to Nicholas Confessore’s reporting in the New York Times on Monday, the libertarian billionaire David Koch told a crowd at a Manhattan fundraiser that Walker had all but secured his endorsement and the support of his and his brother’s donor network. “When the primaries are over and Scott Walker gets the nomination,” Koch is reported to have told the crowd. “We will support whoever the candidate is,” Koch supposedly added in a...

    The Daily Beast ^ | January 22, 2015 | Ruben Navarrette Jr.
    The right-wing firebrand Texas senator, who has been on both sides of the immigration debate, is a lot more complex than he might seem.How “Hispanic” is Ted Cruz? If the brilliant but polarizing senator from Texas—who happens to be Cuban-American—does indeed run for president in 2016, does he have a shot at winning Hispanic votes? At a time when the GOP is hemorrhaging support from Hispanics, would nominating Cruz provide a solution—or, given his extreme rightwing politics, make the problem worse? I have to be honest: I hate these types of questions. It’s fair to ask whether a certain candidate...

    As the debate rages on Capitol Hill about how to defund President Obama's executive action that gives legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants, it's important to take a look at where the funding for his new amnesty program is coming from. The funding for Obama's executive action is coming through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, a fee, not tax based agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security. Because the USCIS is a fee based agency, many have argued Congress cannot defund it. According to the Congressional Research Service, Congress does in fact have the ability to defund the...

    The number of Cubans heading to the United States has soared since the island lifted travel restrictions last year, and instead of making the risky journey by raft across the Florida Straits, most are now passing through Mexico or flying straight to the U.S. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol figures show that more than 22,000 Cubans arrived at the U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada in the fiscal year that ended last month. That was nearly double the number in 2012, the year before restrictions were lifted. The changes in Cuban law eliminate a costly exit visa and make it...

    The people of Boston are no longer being terrorized by the Marathon bombers, but amnesty supporters sure are. On CNN's "State of the Union" last weekend, Sen. Lindsey Graham's response to the Boston Marathon bombers being worthless immigrants who hate America -- one of whom the FBI cleared even after being tipped off by Russia -- was to announce: "The fact that we could not track him has to be fixed." Track him? How about not admitting him as an immigrant? As if it's a defense, we're told Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (of the Back Bay Tsarnaevs) were disaffected "losers"...
