You only need simple math skills to understand why the business class wants more legal and illegal immigration into the United states, and why most politicians pander to our emotions. Their concerns are larger profits and more contributions to their campaigns and/or lifestyles.
- Four million Americans graduate into the workforce each year from high schools and colleges.
- Companies import 1.1 million legal immigrants (visas) each year under current regulations.
- Annually, the government refreshes another 1.5 million work permits a year.
The bad news is that our nation only produces 2.5 million new jobs each year. Immigrant work permits and visas total 2.6 million a year, which means that some 6.6 million workers are fighting for 2.5 million jobs.
Now, you know why so many daughters and sons, grown and graduated, inhabit the lower level of your domicile. Too few jobs for too many applicants is the result of a disastrous immigration policy, a scheme that keeps worker wages low and corporate profits high.
To make things worse, some 11 to 22 million non-citizens are either illegally employed or competing for a job. Working under the table to escape detection, they are often paid in cash with no taxes due to to Uncle Sam by employee or employer.
It’s a racket.
And a huge number of politicians want this War of the Workers to continue, which is why they have introduced the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.
Which brings me to Kamala Harris, the newest darling of the media circus, a veteran prosecutor, and a woman who has survived even Willie Brown’s affections.
Harris is lead co-sponsor for the Fairness Act, which is designed to greatly increase the number of Indian College grads imported into the U.S. to take white-collar jobs. The legislation is intended to help Indians get about 120,000 green cards each year — or roughly five times as many green cards as they receive now.
Someone should remind Harris that because of association with India, the appearance of a conflict of interest damages her as a Presidential candidate.
Harris’ family lived in Berkeley, California, where both parents attended graduate school. She was close to her maternal grandfather, P. V. Gopalan, an Indian diplomat. As a child, she often visited her extended family in the Besant Nagar neighborhood of Chennai, Tamil Nadu. She grew up going to both a black Baptist church and a Hindu temple.
Her father, Donald Harris (a Stanford professor) was born in Jamaica, and once said that one grandmother was related to a plantation and slave owner, while the other had unknown ancestry.
Let’s move back to the appearance of a conflict of interest.
The Harris bill will virtually eliminate H1-B visas for every country except India. With her background, Harris should not sponsor a bill that benefits her ancestral nation, and she must also abstain from voting for it.
