Obama Uses ‘Shadow’ Work Authorization To Give Jobs To Illegal Immigrants. Stats Show This Is Pushing American Citizens Out of Work.
For some reason, when it comes to Illegal immigrants, President Obama just can not help himself. Whether it be dreamers, fencer-jumpers, or just plain people who have intentionally or accidentally overstayed their visas, the president reaches government’s massive hand out to them. Of course, all the while, giving the the American people the other side of that hand.
According to Breitbart News, an Alabama senator says there is a “shadow” work authorization system that President Obama has been running, beyond what has been congressionally allowed. Senator Jeff Sessions is calling for an investigation into this “shadow” work authorization system, that has allowed millions, that is millions with an 'M', more immigrants to obtain work permits.
“This massive increase in the labor supply has occurred simultaneously with a steep drop in family incomes and a sharp rise in the number of Americans pushed out of the workforce. All jobs gains since the recession have gone to foreign workers, while the slack labor market has depressed median family incomes almost $5,000 in that time. A full investigation is warranted. In addition to the widespread non-enforcement of existing immigration law—such as the public charge rule—we know now the Administration has been issuing millions of additional work permits beyond what Congress has authorized.”
The “public charge rule” the senator speaks of, in short, means an Illegal immigrant on the government dole. The Daily Caller reported on the so-called “Gang of Eight” immigration bill , that was attempted in 2013.
The new information that the Senator Sessions is referring to, comes from a Center for Immigration report. It details that from 2009, pretty much when this president took office, President Obama has issued 5.5 million new work permits. The legally authorized limit would be 1.1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers allowed every year. Like anything else worth knowing, the CIS had to obtain the information through a Freedom of Information Act.
Senator Sessions argues that the passage of the long-awaited Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill. The one that halts President Obama's recent Illegal immigration amnesty.
“Any Senator who votes to block debate is voting to deny their constituents the protections of their own laws. Blocking debate on this bill is to block your own constituent’s voice in the affairs of their government.”
The Alabama senator framed it politically for the Democrats, the year before the big 2016 presidential election.
“Congress passed limitations on immigration and rules for residing in the United States, in order to protect the economic interests of all U.S. workers—both immigrant and native-born. Month after month, the Administration has systemically dismantled U.S. immigration laws without evoking a word of protest from members of the President’s party. The coming days will test whether congressional Democrats can claim to represent American workers, or whether they will complete their transformation into the party of open borders.”
If only Mr. Obama was as concerned about getting unemployed Americans jobs as much as Illegal Immigrants, such as dealing with the fledgling economy he has fastened together with duct tape, maybe they would all have jobs by now.
