The Department of Homeland Security is readying a plan to expand a program that pays U.S. employers to hire foreign STEM students taught in America, a move that could end up punishing American college grads and even the elderly, according to an immigration think tank.
In pushing to allow more foreign students into the so-called "optional practical training program," DHS said that it will help businesses and colleges by keeping those foreign students in the U.S. following their American-taught science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM, curriculum.
But the Center for Immigration Studies said it will punish American STEM students competing for those same jobs. And, they added, in adjusting how the foreign students are categorized as employees, they get out of paying payroll taxes used to help fund programs like Social Security and Medicare.
Currently, the program urges companies to hire STEM students for a year. CIS said firms are paid up to $10,000 to participate. The new proposal, said CIS, is to add on another year and $2,000 in bonuses.
How can a country that is broke as hell keep giving money to people who want to kill us. How can any red blooded American support giving money to someone that we don't have. Congress need to stop this madness of Obama. This is a man hell bent and leather bound to completely destroy America financially. We do not have the money to give to people who are not American citizens.
I definitely want those departments eliminated and anyone connected to these programs fired and blackballed from any government job.
AMEN David! Me Too!
CANCEL THEIR BUDGET.
But you know the House does not even try to cancel anyone's budget!!
Once again our Government is screwing the American citizen and using our tax payer money for non-Americans! Wake up AMERICA!!!!
The MSM (liberal) media will only report what DHS says ," DHS said that it will help businesses and colleges by keeping those foreign students in the U.S. following their American-taught science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM, curriculum." so that people will think that it is ok- they won't realize that it hurts American workers. That is how the Obama Administration gets away with this stuff. I know some people that are liberals, and they have no idea what is really going on!
"Department of Homeland Security"...............exactly what is that supposed to mean? What is their job? Homeland Security means, to me, just that, protecting the "homeland" America and the citizens of America. Who the heck do they think they are........oh yes, I forgot, obummer and them rule the roost and we just have to keep our mouth's shut and obey. Sorry, I do not like koolaid.
Just were are they planning to get All this money ! This is how you Crush a Country
Lets get rid of Homeland Security and most of the other alphabet agencies created in the last 15 years!
