Congress trying to increase foreign work visas.
I received this from NumbersUSA, an association that helps shed light unto the treachorous relax immigration policy of the U.S., and this organization helps reduce the number of illegal and legal immigrants in the United States. "Just when you think the Big Business Lobbyists can't be any more callous ... At the same time as reports that we may be in an economic recession and that the job market is getting more and more difficult for Americans, the magazines, newspapers and airwaves are filled with op-eds, editorials and articles quoting the business leaders and lobbyists saying we must import more foreign workers! Both the Democratic and Republican leadership of U.S. House and Senate are right now conspiring to bring legislation to the floor to greatly expand the pool of foreign labor in this country -- even as they talk about the need for taxpayers to provide more unemployment compensation for all the Americans who are losing their jobs. This kind of insanity is nothing new. And it will never slow down unless we as a Lobby of the People mobilize in massive fashion to put an end to it. Please go to your NumbersUSA Action Buffet corkboard and make sure you have taken all the actions we have provided you to stand up against this latest effort of the Big Business Lobby to depress wages and foist major new subsidies upon the taxpayers. I have been working full-time on these immigration issues since 1991. The Big Business Lobby and its well-compensated friends in Congress always use every upturn in the economy to cry for more foreign labor because of perceived shortages. But they never change their tune when the economy turns down. In every period of rising unemployment, the Big Business Lobby continues to cry about terrible worker shortages and always brings in hundreds of thousands of foreign workers during recessions. Your NumbersUSA Capitol Hill Team has talked to a number of people who have been in high level Hill meetings where leaders of both Parties have expressed a desire during this time of economic turmoil to sneak through giant increases of H-1B visas for foreign tech workers, H-2B visas for foreign laborers, greencards for permanent foreign nurses and a five-year visa for 12-20 million illegal foreign workers and their dependents. Friends, I know that all of this may seem too crazy to be true. But please believe me that that the worse our country's economic situation, the more your congressional leaders see a chance to give their corporate sponsors the huge foreign labor increases that the People's Lobby has been blocking the last several years. Send your faxes immediately. Remember that Monday is a federal holiday. Wait to make your phone calls until Tuesday. Congressional leaders hope you will be so busy worrying about your own jobs that you won't notice them giving away millions more through immigration increases." We must act now. You need to call your local and national representatives and tell them you don't appreciate them trying to bring these foreign immigrants in our country and ultimately trying to get rid of your job. Don't wait, do it now.
