Elitist politicians are continuing in their battle against the American workforce in the name of corporate welfare.
31 Senators have been caught attempting to eliminate American jobs. The senators from both parties have requested that the Department of Homeland Security issue more outsourcing visas to allow even more foreign workers into the country instead of hiring American workers. (via Breitbart)
The 31 traitors are: Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), John Cornyn (R-TX), Chris Coons (D-DE), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Tom Carper (D-DE), Patty Murray (D-WA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Angus King (I-ME), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Bob Casey (D-PA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Roy Blunt (R-MO), John Barrasso (R-WY), Susan Collins (R-ME), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Tim Scott (R-SC), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Richard Burr (R-NC), and James Lankford (R-OK).
The senators say they are requesting the increase in foreign workers, as companies complain that hiring Americans is too difficult.
The employers complain despite the fact that special recruitment consultants have been hired to connect businesses with qualified employees. The businesses would rather hire a foreigner with no security – who can be easily taken advantage of – instead of treating American employees appropriately.
The request from the Senate was sent shortly after Republicans cut down the visa program by almost 200,000, reducing the total number issued to 66,000 visas. If these senators get their way, the number of visas could double, or worse.
The H-2b visa program, like the H1-B program, allows foreigners to hold jobs that would usually go to undergraduate students or young people newly entering the workforce. The H1-B visa program already allows 650,000 foreigners into the country.
The push for the increase in visas is being lead by the same group who desire to eliminate American sovereignty and allow illegal immigrants to travel freely and overwhelm the domestic job market. We the People voted against these policies when we elected President Trump on the promise of putting America first.
Americans want to hire other Americans. Americans want products made by other Americans. “Made in America” is a meaningless label if the factory producing the products is relying on thousands of temporary foreign workers.
Businesses used to feel a responsibility to the country where they started. They used to desire to build up their community by providing quality jobs for hardworking Americans. It is disgusting that one-third of our senate is willing to sell out their fellow citizens for a quick buck on behalf of a lazy business owner.
These policies predominately hurt college-aged kids who are just starting to find their way in the workforce. Entry-level jobs are already hard to find, and adding more foreigners will only make the problem worse.
We need to support the business that prove they are committed to hiring Americans. We can vote with our dollar and prove that we support “made in America.”
