Does Washington care about American workers?
The president has taken up the crusade of the growing income inequality in America. While there’s lack of jobs and an overabundance of workers, why has he chosen comprehensive immigration reform as his top agenda item? How will rewarding 12 million illegal’s with work permits and legalization while doubling legal immigration increase wages for Americans?
In 2012, the Department of Homeland security reported America allowed 3.6 million new immigrants and temporary workers into our country.
During the debate on extending unemployment compensation, one senator proposed an amendment creating 50,000 more visas for the high-tech industry! Shouldn't they be trying to put American’s to work and not import more workers?
We don’t have a broken immigration system; we have politicians who value campaign contributions over their constituents.
