Immigration bill would “hammer working Americans.” - African Americans need not apply

Democrats say:  "Black Americans need not apply."
  • Democrats pander to Hispanic foreigners while African Americans experience massive unemployment.  Looks like pro-Hispanic and anti-Black racism
  • GOP legislators are not far behind.  Many Republicans are lackeys of the Chamber of Commerce that is looking for endless new immigrants in low wage and high tech jobs in order to drive down wages.

Insanity  -  Why are Democrats and many Republicans falling all over each other to import or legalize millions of new workers when technology and outsourcing are abolishing jobs faster than they can be created?

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said Friday that the so-called Senate immigration "reform" bill would “hammer working Americans.”

Sessions, one of the immigration overhaul’s most strident critics, suggested the measure would prioritize foreign-born workers over people already in the U.S. struggling to find a job.

“This is far, far too many low-skilled workers that are going to take jobs and pull down wages of people unemployed and underemployed right now,” Sessions, a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on Fox Business. “It's really, really dangerous.”

The Senate Judiciary panel cleared the immigration bill crafted by the so-called “Gang of Eight” this week by a bipartisan 13-5 vote, and its supporters hope to rack up 70 votes in the chamber reports The Hill.

Why are we importing millions of new workers when technology is abolishing jobs faster than they can be created?

Robots and algorithms are getting good at jobs like building cars, writing articles, translating -- jobs that once required a human. So what will we humans do for work?

More American Workers Outsourcing Own Jobs Overseas
A new Department of Labor report finds personal outsourcing is revolutionizing how Americans don't do their own work.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah), another senior Republican on the Judiciary panel, voted for the measure in committee, but has said he might not back it on the Senate floor.
In his Friday interview, Sessions stressed that the unions for the officers that guard the border opposed the immigration bill, and that the measure would be a huge burden on the American safety net.

“We believe in immigration,” Sessions said. “All of us do. And we all believe that we need to make this legal system of immigration better. This bill just does not do it, and it can't pass in this form.”

Sorry Senator, not all of us believe in immigration.  How about protecting American workers?

Key conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation are also deeply skeptical of the Senate immigration bill, but other prominent figures on the right, like Grover Norquist and Douglas Holtz-Eakin, back a comprehensive immigration reform.

But Democrats say we must import more foreigners.
