There are numerous problems with unregulated migration. The biggest is a hit to jobs.
Migrants—especially illegal and undocumented ones—tend to work for low wages. They take jobs from eligible Americans and drive wages down.
It looks like there’s some bad news on that front, thanks to the final days of the Obama administration.
The Department of Homeland Security has released data showing how former President Barack Obama gave work permits to roughly 2.3 million migrants for U.S. jobs in 2016.
The award of 2.3 million work permits was added to the 2016 inflow of roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants and roughly 500,000 outsourcing visa workers, such as the H-1B white-collar workers.
The combined inflow delivered 4 million legal foreign workers to Americans’ economy in 2016, just as 4 million young Americans turned 18 and began looking for decently paid jobs.
From 2012 to 2016, Obama boosted this little-recognized work-permit inflow by 73 percent, from 1.3 million to up 2.3 million…
The spike in migrant labor shows that Obama’s deputies “raised the art of bypassing Congress and abusing executive authority to a new level,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies.
“Most members of Congress ….. [and] people are completely unaware of this third pipeline of [foreign] labor,” she added.
Obama was dead set on increasing immigration into this country. Despite laws that prevent illegal immigration and things like refugee caps, he found ways to bypass all these limits.
The reason? It weakens the U.S. economy so globalists could exploit our resources and become more competitive around the world. Also democrats are under the delusion that illegal immigrants are more likely to vote for them.
So, they want to flood this country full of strangers, to rob American citizens of jobs, economy stability, and even democracy.
The current annual flood of foreign labor spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees.
It also drives up real estate prices, widens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families.
The damage to our country is shocking. Companies deprive American workers of jobs—often college educated men and women—and give them to unqualified foreigners. Our economy and citizens continue to limp along, while politicians and globalists benefit.
Unless the Trump administration can turn the tide, we might not even have a country left.
