I will be a guest on two terrific radio programs today, Monday, October 21st.
The focus of my appearances on both shows, will be the President’s stated goal of pushing through “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” In a recent speech he said that immigration reform was something that everyone agrees with. In point of fact, I would love to know who he was referring to when he said “everyone!”
Comprehensive is comprehensive in that it will leave virtually no illegal aliens behind and will provide more opportunities to justify providing aliens, legal and illegal alike, with the authority to legally work in the United States. Not unlike just about every politician in America, Obama has repeated stated that he wants more jobs to be created in America. The issue, however, is who will be taking the jobs.
Given the current circumstances where immigration is concerned, most ads for jobs should include the tag line- “Americans need not apply!”
While Comprehensive Immigration Reform is almost always referred to as a massive amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens (likely tens of millions of illegal aliens) it will also provide nearly three times as many H1-B visas for high-tech workers and would, for the first time, permit the spouses and adult “children” of H1-B visa holders to also legally work in the United States and be given Employment Authorization Documents. These documents legally make the alien who is issued this document as entitled to a job in America as any American or lawful immigrant worker. This document would enable the alien who would be provided with this document, to sail through the E-Verify program.
While so many politicians have claimed that they favor making E-Verify mandatory (something that should be done) by not pushing against more H1-B visas for high-tech workers and many, many other components of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, most of the benefits of the E-Verify program would be rendered moot.
There is much more to Comprehensive Immigration Reform than is typically reported on- but today we will take a long hard look at what this legislative betrayal will mean for America and Americans!
I hope you will be listening!
