Taking One Step Forward and Two Steps Backward

Hat Tip: Diane
by Janet Crain
How much longer will our government continue this policy? Our own citizens are forced to wait in line and let immigrants go ahead of them. And this is not even considering the impact of the ILLEGAL immigrants, just the legal ones.

Do not think illegals only perform menial unskilled labor. They are welders, roofers, electricians, stone masons, carpenters, etc. I know, I live in Texas.

On February 2, 2009, NumbersUSA with the Coalition for the Future American Worker launched the above "elevator ad" in an extended nationwide educational campaign on cable TV.

The purpose of the ad is to inform the public of two government statistics that, when placed together, show an outrageous participation of our federal government in increasing the numbers of unemployed Americans.

The two statistics from last year?

2.5 million Americans lost jobs
The federal government brought in 1.5 million new foreign workers to take jobs
NumbersUSA has been doing everything in its power the last three months to persuade the nation's political leaders and media leaders to address this incongruous policy. Yet to date, there has been no indication whatsoever of a slow-down in importing an average of 138,000 new foreign workers each month -- even as half-million Americans a month are losing jobs.

The fact is that U.S. immigration policies are on automatic pilot. It doesn't matter how terrible the economy becomes -- it doesn't matter that more than 11 million Americans are looking for a job and can't find one. No matter what, businesses can still seek to cut their labor costs by bringing in as many foreign workers as they did when the economy was booming.

The feds will keep cranking out 138,000 new work permits and green cards EACH MONTH to working-age foreign adults unless Congress and the President decide to change current policies so that they serve the interests of American workers.

What can you do?
