The White House is calling out to US firms to hire Syrians in countries of resettlement like the US. Obama doesn’t look to hire citizens – but Syrians. They need jobs.
The White House this week issued a formal Call to Action for U.S. firms to make “new, measurable, and significant commitments that will have a long-term, sustainable impact on refugees residing in countries on the frontlines of this crisis and in countries of resettlement, like the United States.”
This is what he calls leadership and humanitarianism.
He’s going to give a lot of rights to work as well – a million in fact.
The administration has provided over $5 billion in humanitarian aid. On Sept. 20, President Obama will host a summit of world leaders on the refugee crisis to secure increased pledges for aid; measures to help refugees become contributing members of their host communities, including getting one million adults the legal right to work; and a greater intake of refugees through resettlement and work programs.
About half of the refugees have college degrees so they can take jobs from better educated US citizens.
They are also pushing to get US companies to recognize foreign degrees, not even US degrees.
Keep voting for the Democrats. How does this help our black population?
Apparently executives from many companies said they will support and incorporate refugees in their firms. In recognition of the clear economic and social value of such efforts, the 2016 Awards for Corporate Excellence that will be given by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry later this year will include a new category on inclusive hiring practices, notably the hiring of refugees.
It’s inclusivity to hire foreigners and abandon citizens.
Incidentally, each Middle Eastern refugee costs taxpayers $64,370 to resettle them here, according to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies. ”
