This is absolutely absurd, we have millions of people out of work in the US and the big corporations are pushing for immigration reform so they can
get foreign workers? What it is really saying is the big corporations want the reform not because there is a shortage of workers in the US, but
because they want to be able to hire the foreign workers that will work for less money.
"High technology companies are among the fastest growing lobbying shops in Washington," said Adam Thierer, of the Mercatus Center for Politics
at George Mason University. "Google, Facebook, Microsoft, these are among the largest players, and they're matching what a lot of other
telecommunications and cable companies have done for many years."
It is becoming extremely apparent that our "representatives" are not interested in serving the people but are working directly for the corporate
interests that donate to their campaign funds.
"If you are a tech company, immigration is not a social issue, not a cultural issue, not a moral issue -- it is a bottom-line issue," said
Professor Dan Schnur at the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California.
I guess the passage of the 1,200 page immigration bill, without it being read, is the payoff to the corporations that assisted the government with the
domestic spying and eavesdropping agenda. This is truly enough to turn your stomach, they aren't even hiding the fact that it's being done, in fact
they are now flaunting it.
Acting with Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, "forward.us" successfully amended the current immigration bill to almost triple the number of foreign
high-tech workers allowed into the U.S. from 65,000 to 180,000. The Hatch proposal also eliminated the requirement employers prove their new green
card-holder did not displace an American worker.
Let me repeat a line in the quoted text, "Eliminated the requirement employers prove their new green card-holder did not displace an American
worker". Now do you think that Sen. Hatch or any of the others that are voting for this bill are looking out for the hard working American that is
trying to support his or her family and raise their kids? It is abundantly clear that Mr. Hatch nor the rest of them give a dam about the American
people, in fact you could say that they are serving the foreigners that will admittedly take jobs that the out of work American worker could have.
This makes me sick, this is not the America that I grew up in, that my uncle died defending in WWII and that I served to protect. This is the America
where the American citizen takes second seat to big corporations and foreign workers. I'll stop my rant here before I end up with a T&C violation
because if I typed how I really feel right now I would probably be banned for life.
