Prepare to be Fucked
The Big Corporations are pushing their lackeys in Congress to legalize
millions of new workers to compete against Americans for jobs.
Endless Immigration & Unemployment - The giant corporations are calling for their bought and paid for hacks in Congress to "reform" immigration and legalize and import millions of new workers to compete directly with American citizens for work.
The pro-immigration liars in both parties ignore the fact that countless millions of American citizens are under and unemployed. They don't care as long as wages are kept down for their corporate master who fund their campaigns.
The liars in Congress have already been pushing a bill giving 55,000 green cards a year to import doctoral and masters graduates to take jobs from Americans.
On Tuesday, the chief human resources officers of more than 100 large corporations sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urging quick passage of a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
The officials represent companies with a vast array of business interests: General Electric, The Walt Disney Company, Marriott International, Hilton Worldwide, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, McDonald's Corporation, The Wendy's Company, Coca-Cola, The Cheesecake Factory, Johnson & Johnson, Verizon Communications, Hewlett-Packard, General Mills, and many more.
All want to see increases in immigration levels for low-skill as well as high-skill workers, in addition to a path to citizenship for the millions of immigrants currently in the U.S. illegally reports the Washington Examiner.
A new immigration law, the corporate officers say, "would be a long overdue step toward aligning our nation's immigration policies with its workforce needs at all skill levels to ensure U.S. global competitiveness." The officials cite a publication of their trade group, the HR Policy Association, which calls for immigration reform to "address the reality that there is a global war for talent."
The way for the United States to win that war for "talent", they say, is more immigration.
Here is the track record of a few of the companies who signed the letter.
- 29,000 laid off 2012 by Hewlett-Packard
- 12,000 laid off over 3 years by Cisco Systems
- 3,000 to be laid off this year by United Technologies
- 5,400 to be laid off this year by American Express
- 5,700 laid off in 2012 by Procter & Gamble
- 2,250 laid off in 2012 by T-Mobile
There are more still. In all, it's fair to say a large number of the corporate signers of the letter demanding more labor from abroad have actually laid off workers at home in recent years. Together, their actions have a significant effect on the economy. According to a recent Reuters report, U.S. employers announced 50,462 layoffs in August, up 34 percent from the previous month and up 57 percent from August 2012.
"It is difficult to understand how these companies can feel justified in demanding the importation of cheap labor with a straight face at a time when tens of millions of Americans are unemployed," writes the Center for Immigration Studies, which strongly opposes the Senate Gang of Eight bill and similar measures. "The companies claim the bill is an 'opportunity to level the playing field for U.S. employers' but it is more of an effort to level the wages of American citizens."

The youth unemployment rate for African Americans is 28.2%. But politicians from both parties ignore Blacks in favor of Hispanics who are citizens of foreign nations.
Looks like pro-Hispanic and anti-Black racism.
