With the passage of the $1.1 trillion budget, the Republicans pretty much caved into the demands of the Democrats.
But this budget includes more than run away spending.
Tucked inside the spending bill is Obama’s executive action to open up the flood gates for foreign students Green Cards.
“Obama has gone the Full Monty to bust the immigration system,” says immigration lawyer John Miano. “What is going on is he is effectively giving Green Cards to people on H-1B visas who are unable to get Green Cards due to the [annual] quotas… it could be over 100,000.”
The new rules to aid foreign college-graduates are an extension of his earlier efforts to bypass popular laws against illegal immigration, said Miano, the co-author of a new book about the painful impact of the white-collar guest-worker programs, titled “Sold Out.”
This executive action could have been prevented, however, had the bipartisan 2016 omnibus funding included language proposed by Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) In April, Sessions proposed language to reduce and cap the number of work-permits — dubbed “Employment Authorization Documents” — that could be distributed to foreign workers each year. Sessions’ recommendation was rejected by GOP and Democratic leaders in Congress, and so House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan’s December omnibus is enabling the president’s new executive action.
Keep this in mind when you go to the Primary polls this election season.
The GOP leadership sold out the Tea Party conservatives who were elected in 2010 and 2014 to stop Obama’s agenda.
Trump, divorcé the two party system.
I think we are in a lose-lose situation. All out revolt seems to be the only solution.
These vermin who do not have the testicles to resign because they have become the lap dogs of Obaboonzo to save our Nation are despicable. "NOTE MUSLIMES HATE DOGS."
republicans (mostly rinos) have failed our country since the turn of the 20th century. This should not come as a surprise to anyone.
