There are so many illegal immigrants going through the court system that the U.S. courts can’t handle them. Immigrants have had their hearings canceled and are being told by the government that it may be 2019 or later before their futures are resolved, according to GOP USA.
It is in front of this backdrop that Barack Obama has been running a shadow immigration system. He lets everyone in – or at least 5.5 million – and gives them all work permits.
According to a new report from The Center for Immigration Studies, Barack Obama has quietly given out 5.46 million work permits to immigrants and 1.7 million went to those with status unknown.
Inexplicably, ‘1,200 new work permits went to unlawful entrants who were denied asylum, were suspected of using fraudulent documentation, were stowaways, or were refused at a port of entry’, reported the National Review online.
They were denied asylum! Refused port of entry! He still gave them work permits!!!
Another 1.1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers come into the country legally each year.
The data was collected via a FOIA request.
This is besides the millions he plans to give work permits to over the course of the next month.
We have high unemployment, dropping wages, and more than 92 million out of the workforce and the jobs are going to the foreign nationals, many of whom are being rewarded for sneaking in illegally or jumping visas.
Jessica Vaughn of The Center for Immigration Studies said, “I was astonished at the huge number of work permits that are being issued by the Obama administration outside the legal immigration system through executive discretion, especially at a time of high unemployment and stagnant wages. Besides the effect on the American worker, it encourages and rewards more illegal immigration.”
It was only last year, when Obama had 34 million green cards and work permits printed up. Do you think that will be enough?
All new jobs created since 2007 equal the number of jobs that went to foreign nationals.
Sen. Sessions reacted to the latest report in a statement posted on his website, saying, “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,” Sessions said in a statement Monday. “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.”
Sen. Sessions wrote that this FOIA’d information has ‘unearthed’ a ‘shadow immigration system previously unknown to the American public’. He has called for a full investigation.
‘We know now the Administration has been issuing millions of additional work permits beyond what Congress has authorized he said. ‘Since 2009, the Administration has issued 5.5 million new work permits in excess of the regular immigration flow. 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.’
‘This exposé,’ he continued, ‘comes as Congress prepares to vote tomorrow on whether to begin debate on the House-passed bill to stop the President’s unlawful issuance of another 5 million work permits to illegal immigrants. The House bill on the floor fully funds every lawful activity of DHS; what it does not fund is outlaw behavior.’
‘Any Senator who votes to block debate is voting to deny their constituents the protections of their own laws,’ he said.
Is Sen. Sessions one of only about 3 or 4 Senators who care? It sure seems that way.
Don’t worry though, Barack Obama is on top of it. He’s heaped more taxes on the wealthy and has thrown a $4 trillion budget at Congress. That will get the economy going in Obamaland.
His $4 trillion budget has no strategy, no basis in reality but allowing endless lawless immigration will kill off any growth.
So what will Congress do about all this illegal immigration? Will they do something?
They were voted in to stop this madness and a lawsuit that won’t go anywhere for years, if at all, is not going to work. Congress must pass a bill to close the border, stop funding illegal immigration, and let Obama close down the government. Harry Reid is gone and this will fall squarely on Obama’s shoulders.
Will they do it? Or will they respond as The Chamber of Commerce, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg want them to respond? They think we need even more foreign nationals? There is no reason to believe that.
Someone, please, stop the madness. Americans voted in a president who hates America.
