On Tuesday morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing titled Immigration Reforms Needed to Protect Skilled American Workers that mostly centered on replacement of citizens by foreign workers.
The fraud-friendly H-1b employment visa has been a problem for years and shows how little the government cares about protecting hard-working Americans who spent years and plenty [...]
How is an economy supposed to function when human workers are becoming obsolete because of smart machines in the workplace? Leisure time is certainly nice, but humans require money for acquiring goods and services. Curiously, the captains of industry don’t seem to notice the consumption part of the economy equation, and when people don’t get [...]
Roy Beck, of NumbersUSA, appeared Monday on MSNBC to discuss Obama’s illegal amnesty (spare video link). While much of the chatter lately has been about deportations, Beck emphasized the central issue regarding the policy’s effect on the American people: The work permits are the amnesty.
ROY BECK: We want members of Congress to think that it [...]
On Friday, Dennis Michael Lynch was a guest host on Newsmax TV. He is the independent filmmaker who has produced border documentaries like They Come to America II.
He interviewed Roy Beck (of NumbersUSA, the activist pro-sovereignty immigration organization) about the threat posed by Obama’s executive amnesty.
(Note: there is an annoying pause in the connection to [...]
Do schools still teach the basic concept of supply and demand, in particular that when a labor market is flooded, then wages fall? It often seems not, since news coverage of unemployment almost never mentions the effect of importing millions of foreign workers on wages and job availability.
Democrats wail about income inequality and advocate for [...]
Over in the medieval Vatican, the busybody Pope Francis has called upon Europe to accept more diverse refugees from the third world.
The Pope could have shown leadership by admitting a few dozen suffering souls to his diminutive city-state (a real country with ambassadors and a flag), but he has not. He is scheduled to meet [...]
I happened to click on to PBS’ Charlie Rose Show yesterday where the illegal alien tsunami was being discussed by some Republican suits. Ed Rollins opined that our current system could be wildly expanded beyond the measly doubling of legal immigration (from one million annually) of the Senate amnesty bill, but should instead accept five [...]
Americans should look around and take stock of all the places where a smart machine is performing a task formerly done by a human: ATMs (Automatic Teller Machines), ticket kiosks in airports and self-checkout in grocery stores. Plus there are other examples that exist out of the public eye, including automated warehouses, robots for harvesting [...]
Why can’t anyone wearing a suit not understand the connection between permissive immigration (legal and illegal) and American unemployment? Do universities no longer teach supply and demand in Econ 101?
To liberals and their media poodles, there is no contradiction between a segment on a suffering long-unemployed American worker followed by an item about mass legalization [...]
The indispensable man was back on the Senate floor on Thursday, defending American workers who are struggling to survive in the jobless recovery. Senator Sessions warned clearly about the danger of an immigration bill conference committee, where a tough enforcement House bill would be blended with the disastrous Senate monstrosity, and amnesty would be rammed [...]
Below is Senator Jeff Sessions‘ response to Friday’s terrible unemployment report which showed only 88,000 new jobs were added to the economy, about half the average of the last few months. Plus, the labor force participation rate dropped to 63.3 percent, the lowest since 1979 (the Carter administration). Nearly 90 million Americans older than age 16 [...]
In California, scribblers are doing the happy dance over the latest unemployment news, because the rate of joblessness reached the “lowest level since December 2008.” Oh, huzzah!
Meanwhile, in Realityville, the state still has the worst unemployment rate in the nation — 9.6 percent — which California happens to share with Nevada and Mississippi for the [...]
