Jeff Sessions, the great Senator from Alabama, is constantly talking about how the influx of illegals is damaging job prospects for American workers. We usually think of this as affecting mostly farm and service jobs, but the reality is that it impacts every job. IT workers are living on a salary that it the equivalent of that in the Clinton years. On the low end the influx of illegals is devastating working poor Americans and for the middle class the H1B program has robbed skilled workers of opportunity.
Who do we blame for this. The answer is simple, the Federal Government. These are policies shaped strictly by large corporate contributions to PACs and candidates. Companies that want to keep wages low have maneuvered our representatives into giving away the opportunity due American citizens. This is all in the name of corporate profit and political gain.
As food inflation hits record highs, poverty hits record highs and the number of people on government assistance explodes, these policies, which penalize the majority of working Americans, remain unchanged. Perhaps the news cycle, instead of focusing on ISIS, domestic violence in the NFL, the Kardashians, and Ferguson should focus on helping the majority of US citizens. All the other stuff may be important, but compared to the misery the sell out of our citizenship has caused, it is little.
The solution is simple. We need to close the borders and create huge penalties for hiring illegal workers. Then we need to cancel the H1B program altogether. The prosperity and the security for every US citizen will go up dramatically. With hiring for illegal workers stopped, the ones here illegally will go home on their own. Amazing.
It is a shame that so few in government are patriots to the tune of caring out our own citizens.
