H-1B's evil twins are the H-2A and H-2B visas.


Secret deal quadruples foreign workers in U.S.
Borrows from Rubio's 'Gang of Eight' bill to flood blue-collar job market

Buried in the 2,000-page omnibus spending bill released by the Senate Wednesday morning is a secret provision that many senators hope unemployed blue-collar workers won’t find out about.

This provision would quadruple the number of H-2B visas for low-skilled foreign “guest workers.” It would allow more than a quarter-of-a-million foreign workers to enter the U.S. each year and work in the construction industry, hotel-motel services, truck drivers, food processing, forestry and many other fields that don’t require a college education.

A vote on the spending bill is expected late Thursday night, possibly after midnight, sources on the Hill told WND.

The bill also includes funding for all of President Obama’s foreign refugee resettlement program and does nothing to stop the proliferation of so-called “sanctuary cities.”

Legal immigration is already at an all-time high, with 1.1 million foreign-born persons coming to the U.S. every year, and a recent Pew Research poll shows 83 percent of the voting public wishes to see the level of immigration frozen or reduced.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., reportedly helped negotiate the omnibus deal. The spending bill also includes full funding for President Obama’s refugee resettlement program, which will cost $1.6 billion and bring in another 85,000 refugees this year, many of them from jihadist hotbeds like Syria, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The timing of the bill comes as a record number of blue-collar American workers can’t find a job at all, said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.

“At a time when the civilian labor force participation rate in the U.S. is approximately 62.4%, now is not the time to advance legislation further depressing wages and employment for U.S. workers,” Sessions said in a letter to the chairs of the Senate appropriations committee.

But this is not the first time Congress has tried to include such a dramatic infusion of foreign labor into the lower rung of the U.S. job market.

The Gang of Eight bill in 2013, co-sponsored by Sen. Marco Rubio, also increased the controversial H-2B visa that brings in foreign workers to fill jobs as construction workers, restaurant employees, hotel maids and industrial workers.

In just the case of construction, there are six unemployed construction workers for each job opening, according to a study by the Economic Policy Institute. Yet the omnibus released around 2 a.m, Wednesday, would as much as quadruple the H-2B visa in an unadvertised provision secreted into the more than 2,000-page bill.

Yuo and they've been doing it since the late 70's - early 80's.

First it was the production of tshotshkes to Japan -after all it was just manufacturing junk - remember when made in japan indicated low quality, low value items.

Then it was the manufacture of electronics to Japan and South Korea. This was followed by moving heavy manufacturing (e.g. steel production) to China using more excuses out of Internationalists PR department. Then it was jobs under the H-1B, ya know jobs us bitter clingers are unwilling and unable to do. Now it's open season on US jobs.

Just wait until TPP passes. Obama removed the clause forbidding slavery:.
Obama Removes TPP’s Anti-Slavery Clause, Then Attacks Confederate Flag as “Symbol of Slavery”
Hypocrisy: Obama defends slavery, then attacks rebel flag for ties to slavery
Kit Daniels - June 30, 2015

Right before he publicly attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery,” President Obama quietly removed an anti-slavery provision from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.

“The provision, which bars countries that engage in slavery from being part of major trade deals with the U.S., was written by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.),” the Huffington Post reported in May. “At the insistence of the White House, Menendez agreed to modify his language to say that as long as a country is taking ‘concrete’ steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor, it can be part of a trade deal.”

“Under the original language, the country that would be excluded from the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership pact is Malaysia.”

Malaysia is a major hub for human trafficking in Southeast Asia, with enslaved men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking, according to the State Dept.

“Why, in the year 2015, is the White House teaming up with Republican leaders essentially to defend the practice of slavery?” The Huffington Post added.

It was only a month later that President Obama attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery.”

“[Removing the flag] would not be an insult to the valor of Confederate soldiers; it would simply be an acknowledgment that the cause for which they fought — the cause of slavery — was wrong,” he said during a June 26 eulogy in Charleston, S.C.

In other words, Obama defended slavery when it benefitted the TPP, but then attacked the Confederate flag for its historic link to slavery because it was politically expedient.
