I remember the sting all too well. I had a job that I absolutely loved and one day we all came in and were told that Friday would be our last day. The reason: the company was being sold to Mexico. Once again, the liberal left is betraying the actual citizens of this country… and their idiotic party members are celebrating the very traitors to their own welfare.
Earlier this month, 31 senators, sitting on BOTH sides of the aisle, asked the Department of Homeland Security to increase the use of outsourcing visas so that additional foreign workers could enter the United States and hold jobs in American companies — rather than hiring U.S. workers, via Breitbart.
The 31 senators who wrote the request are: Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Ron Wyden (D-OR), John Cornyn (R-TX), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Chris Coons (D-DE), John Barrasso (R-WY), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Susan Collins (R-ME), Tom Carper (D-DE), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Patty Murray (D-WA), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Angus King (I-ME), Tim Scott (R-SC), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Richard Burr (R-NC), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), James Lankford (R-OK), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), and Bob Casey (D-PA).
The request was made because some American-owned companies are complaining that hiring citizens is too much work. They claim that low-level jobs — such as restaurant cleanup and landscaping — are better done by immigrants who already have experience in the field.
Even though recruitment consultants have been hired in order to help business owners find qualified American workers, employers are still throwing a fit. Apparently, having to train citizens for these jobs has been a strain.
This move to increase the number of working visas allowed is coming only shortly after the GOP reduced the H-2B visa program from 264,000 visas down to 66,000 visas. Now, if this new request goes through, that number could easily double.
