Legal Immigration

We and probably most Americans agree to a point with the following Op Ed in the New York Times by three multi-billionaires.

It omits the heart of the immigration issue, equality of opportunity for all Americans, not just billionaires, immigrants or even illegal immigrants.

It ignores our oath of office to preserve, protect, and defend our Constitution of the United States.

Our Constitution gives our government the obligation to protect our borders against invasion and enforce our Bill of Rights for all Americans, not just the power elite.

We disagree with the present political regime of both parties violating our Constitution by deliberately abandoning our border protections.

We object to DC orchestrating and subsidizing an invasion of illegal aliens misleadingly described as refugee children.

There are 2.2 Billion poor children in the world and government cannot save them all, or even a tenth of them. 

Some have disease and are career criminals, gangbangers or terrorists.

All this was deliberately enabled by present DC leaders and Representatives who refused to enforce our laws. They violated our Bill of Rights for illegal votes (without picture voter ID), to stay in power at the increasing expense of American citizens.

This was not a random event. DHS posted jobs for illegal escorts last January. Our borders are not secure.

Meantime, up to three quarters of Americans did not vote because they were so turned off by criminal politics with long incumbent Democrats and Republicans.   

This allowed a two-party DC tyranny for three generations that grew unproductive government warfare and welfare faster than our economy or population.

America was so wealthy we did not notice it at first.

Now all but the 1% feel it.

We have no more government gold reserves after decades of budget and trade deficits.

Many illegals are not children, as claimed by teleprompter propaganda headlines.

Illegal aliens who say they are under age 15, even if older with gang and prison tattoos, are not fingerprinted and are released into our country, causing future problems for America and Americans.

Most do not read, write or speak English.

Many convert our cities into crime, disease and litter-filled ghettos where the majority of criminal warrants issued are for illegals. Do we really want Godfather politics?

With government support for crossing our border illegally, illegals do not obey US laws, respect Americans or our American way of life.

They come for free education, free food stamps, free healthcare, free housing, free legal services, free rehabilitation, free welfare. They give US the finger, burn our flag, spit on, beat up and kill our citizens in return.

No other country allows or promotes this because they know it is national suicide.

Of course free government rides for illegal aliens are not free. Payment does not ultimately come from government.

Free government rides are paid on the backs and out of the pockets of the declining American working middle class, while some corporations, foundations and unions pay no tax.

As a result of excess government cancer, America now has a labor participation rate of 62.8%.

This is the lowest since March 1979, the last time we had a political revolution.

We are overdue.

Just 62.8% of our workforce employed means deliberate government policies put 37.2% of able-bodied Americans out of work.

Government tyranny causes lost jobs and rising costs with IRS agents, layoffs, red tape and 20 new taxes with Obamacare.

People out of work do not have money for the American Dream, let alone to pay taxes to support Constitutional minimal necessary government.

Wealthy corporations and families are leaving America with their money for their safety.

We Americans further face deliberate Federal Reserve inflation destroying free economy, free markets, savings and our retirement for prosperity.

Anyone who buys food, energy or healthcare knows real inflation is far more than the recent 2.6% official rate dismissed as noise.

Laying off expensive American engineers and workers for lower-priced third world H1(B) engineers and workers without an American standard of living may help short term corporate profits and insider stock option perks, but does not help most Americans or America.

It is a variation of the trickle down conspiracy theory that forgets Henry Ford grew his company by paying top wages, not the lowest wages. He wanted his employees to be able to buy his cars and housing. 

Oligarch government added subsidized illegals to the mix to keep real wages declining as they have since 1972 for their profits. This is hardly a fix for Americans or our economy.

It is a recipe for turning America into a third world country.

We are better than that.

Break the Immigration Impasse

Sheldon Adelson, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates on Immigration Reform

The Op-Ed:

AMERICAN citizens are paying 535 people to take care of the legislative needs of the country. We are getting shortchanged. Here’s an example: On June 10, an incumbent congressman in Virginia lost a primary election in which his opponent garnered only 36,105 votes. Immediately, many Washington legislators threw up their hands and declared that this one event would produce paralysis in the United States Congress for at least five months. In particular, they are telling us that immigration reform — long overdue — is now hopeless.

Americans deserve better than this.

The three of us vary in our politics and would differ also in our preferences about the details of an immigration reform bill. But we could without doubt come together to draft a bill acceptable to each of us. We hope that fact holds a lesson: You don’t have to agree on everything in order to cooperate on matters about which you are reasonably close to agreement. It’s time that this brand of thinking finds its way to Washington.

Most Americans believe that our country has a clear and present interest in enacting immigration legislation that is both humane to immigrants living here and a contribution to the well-being of our citizens. Reaching these goals is possible. Our present policy, however, fails badly on both counts.

We believe it borders on insanity to train intelligent and motivated people in our universities — often subsidizing their education — and then to deport them when they graduate. Many of these people, of course, want to return to their home country — and that’s fine. But for those who wish to stay and work in computer science or technology, fields badly in need of their services, let’s roll out the welcome mat.

A “talented graduate” reform was included in a bill that the Senate approved last year by a 68-to-32 vote. It would remove the worldwide cap on the number of visas that could be awarded to legal immigrants who had earned a graduate degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics from an accredited institution of higher education in the United States, provided they had an offer of employment. The bill also included a sensible plan that would have allowed illegal residents to obtain citizenship, though only after they had earned the right to do so.

Americans are a forgiving and generous people, and who among us is not happy that their forebears — whatever their motivation or means of entry — made it to our soil?

For the future, the United States should take all steps to ensure that every prospective immigrant follows all rules and that people breaking these rules, including any facilitators, are severely punished. No one wants a replay of the present mess.

We also believe that America’s self-interest should be reflected in our immigration policy. 

For example, the EB-5 “immigrant investor program,” created by Congress in 1990, was intended to allow a limited number of foreigners with financial resources or unique abilities to move to our country, bringing with them substantial and enduring purchasing power. Reports of fraud have surfaced with this program, and we believe it should be reformed to prevent abuse but also expanded to become more effective. People willing to invest in America and create jobs deserve the opportunity to do so.

Their citizenship could be provisional — dependent, for example, on their making investments of a certain size in new businesses or homes. Expanded investments of that kind would help us jolt the demand side of our economy. These immigrants would impose minimal social costs on the United States, compared with the resources they would contribute. New citizens like these would make hefty deposits in our economy, not withdrawals.

Whatever the precise provisions of a law, it’s time for the House to draft and pass a bill that reflects both our country’s humanity and its self-interest. Differences with the Senate should be hammered out by members of a conference committee, committed to a deal.

A Congress that does nothing about these problems is extending an irrational policy by default; that is, if lawmakers don’t act to change it, it stays the way it is, irrational. The current stalemate — in which greater pride is attached to thwarting the opposition than to advancing the nation’s interests — is depressing to most Americans and virtually all of its business managers. The impasse certainly depresses the three of us.

Signs of a more productive attitude in Washington — which passage of a well-designed immigration bill would provide — might well lift spirits and thereby stimulate the economy. 

It’s time for 535 of America’s citizens to remember what they owe to the 318 million who employ them.
