illegal labor:

    President Joe Biden’s amnesty plan, introduced in Congress on Thursday, continues protecting employers who hire illegal aliens over American citizens by excluding mandatory E-Verify. The amnesty plan would push the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens in the United States into legal status categories, allowing the majority to immediately start legally competing for scarce jobs against America’s working and middle class while helping businesses cut their labor costs and spike their profit margins. For the millions more illegal aliens who would likely be added to the U.S. population over the next decade by surges of illegal immigration at the southern border and an open pipeline for foreign nationals to continue overstaying their visas without much enforcement, the plan does little to punish employers who hire them over Americans. Specifically, the plan excludes requiring employers to use the E-Verify system, which screens the employment eligibility of a potential new hire....
    President Joe Biden is readying the release of his amnesty plan that will seek to increase legal immigration levels while legalizing 11 to 22 million illegal aliens — a policy prescription that is likely to burden black American communities more than any other. Biden and elected Democrats, this week, are expected to unveil their amnesty plan that is likely to propose increasing the flow of low-skilled foreign workers to the United States to compete for jobs against unemployed Americans. Similarly, the plan is likely to give green cards to nearly the entire illegal alien population who would be immediately allowed to legally take U.S. jobs. The amnesty priority of the Biden administration and Democrats comes as black Americans helped boost their electoral victories in the last election cycle. The black vote in swing states like Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania helped push Biden over the line. Nationally, black Americans went 87...
    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) slammed President Joe Biden’s administration amid evidence that his deputies want to minimize the deportation of illegal migrants who are caught dealing deadly drugs. “It’s the Biden administration policy to allow illegal aliens to stay in America even after they: -Deal fentanyl and heroin -Commit fraud -Commit assault -Drive drunk -Launder money,” Cotton tweeted February 8. “More than 80,000 Americans died from drug overdoses last year. And the Biden administration just announced that deporting illegal alien cartel members who deal with fentanyl and heroin is no longer a priority for his administration,” he added. For more than 20 years, many Americans have been killed by drunk-driving illegals, including many killed after federal and state officials decide not to deport illegals.

    President Joe Biden’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency will stop deporting migrants who violate Americans’ right to their own national labor market, according to a report in the Washington Post. The Washington Post reported on February 7 that Biden’s draft policy says agents will not be allowed to deport illegal migrants caught taking American’ jobs and wages: While ICE’s new operational plans are not yet final, interim instructions sent to senior officials point to a major shift in enforcement. Agents will no longer seek to deport immigrants for crimes such as driving under the influence and assault, and will focus instead on national security threats, recent border crossers and people completing prison and jail terms for aggravated felony convictions. “Generally, these convictions [needed for deportation] would not include drug based crimes (less serious offenses), simple assault, DUI, money laundering, property crimes, fraud, tax crimes, solicitation, or charges without convictions,” acting...
    Millions of Americans are projected to remain jobless for the next three to four years, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), though President Joe Biden is looking to fill American jobs with foreign workers. In a report released this month, CBO analysts said the number of jobless Americans — all of whom want full-time jobs — will not return to pre-coronavirus levels until around 2024. “As the economy expands, many people rejoin the civilian labor force who had left it during the pandemic, restoring it to its pre-pandemic size in 2022,” the CBO report states. “The unemployment rate gradually declines throughout the period, and the number of people employed returns to its pre-pandemic level in 2024.” The CBO analysis projects that while the unemployment rate, which hides the number of total Americans out of the workforce, will return to an average of about four percent between 2024 and 2025....
    Millions of Americans remain jobless, but all want full-time jobs, even as President Joe Biden’s administration seeks to flood to United States labor market with foreign competition via more legal immigration and an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data reveals that 17.1 million Americans are jobless — 10.1 million underemployed and another seven million who are out of the labor force entirely — but all want full-time jobs with competitive wages and good benefits. Of those 10.1 million unemployed Americans, 1.5 million are teenagers, 930,00 are black Americans, 870,000 are Hispanics, 666,600 are Asian Americans, and 576,000 are white Americans. About 3.5 million of those unemployed are permanent job losers. Another group of Americans, six million, remain underemployed mostly due to the Chinese coronavirus crisis that has spurred states to issue selective economic lockdowns that have shuttered small and medium-sized businesses while multinational...
    Foreign migrants take American jobs illegally because the federal government will not let them take the jobs legally, according to a new article in the New York Times. “The Reagan-era amnesty in 1986 caused only a temporary drop in the number of undocumented immigrants because it was not accompanied by a robust system for legally bringing in low-skilled workers,” said the January 27 news article by reporter Miriam Jordan. The editor-approved headline was “The Reality Behind Biden’s Plan to Legalize 11 Million Immigrants,” referring to illegal migrants. The New York Times‘ perspective on illegal migration matches George W. Bush’s “Any Willing Worker” strategy, said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies: It is the business perspective that the level of immigration should be set by market conditions, that there are no limits. The desires of business and of the immigrants are the two things that determine how many...
    Amnesty for illegal immigrants is bad for American workers, according to a tweet from GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. “A proposal to gut immigration enforcement and give blanket amnesty? Rough ‘day one’ for American workers,” said the tweet. The failed Paris deal will hurt American families while China and Russia grow emissions. The Keystone cancellation will kill union jobs and hurt U.S. energy security. And a proposal to gut immigration enforcement and give blanket amnesty? Rough "day one" for American workers. — Leader McConnell (@LeaderMcConnell) January 21, 2021 The tweet is McConnell’s first mention of immigration on his Twitter account. The tweet came as GOP politicians are moving to embrace the populist policies they will need to get reelected in  2022 and 2024, and also to regain a majority in the Senate. “Before we deal with immigration, we need to … make sure everyone has the chance to find a...
    President Joe Biden has put a bust of Cesar Chavez in the Oval Office, even though Chavez was a militant opponent of Biden’s cheap labor migration policies. Progressives portray Chavez as a heroic Latino who fought to win legal rights for foreign-born Latinos. But Chavez is a hero to American solidarity activists because he and his allies fought the farm industry’s relentless campaign to import cheap labor instead of hiring Americans at decent wages. “Chavez, founder of the United Farm Workers union, was a fierce opponent of illegal immigration and supporter of tight border controls,” wrote Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration studies. “That’s why it’s fitting to observe March 31 each year as National Border Control Day, in honor of the farmworker leader,” he wrote in 2014 Ann Coulter has repeatedly touted National Border Control Day, and he showcased Chevez’s pro-solidarity policies on January 20 when media...
    The big business lobby is cheerleading President-elect Joe Biden’s massive amnesty plan for the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, calling the initiative one of their many “priorities.” Biden floated the amnesty plan with a number of open borders and business lobbying groups during a meeting this week. Some executives with the groups are calling the amnesty “the most aggressive” plan they have seen while working on Capitol Hill, suggesting it includes not only legislation, but executive orders to legalize most of the illegal alien population. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which represents corporate interests, tells Axios the amnesty plan is among the many priorities they want from the Biden administration. Axios reports: Suzanne Clark, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told me that the #1 desire she hears from members, including small businesses, is “more responsible adults in the room governing.” Clark said key...
    An amnesty would generate more taxes for the government and more cheap workers for businesses, according to a pitch from a construction executive and various Koch network activists that sidelines the interests of American employees. Stan Marek, the owner of Marek Brothers, a Houston-based construction firm that has employed many illegal migrants, is pushing the “ID & Tax Proposal” amnesty: Let’s face it: those 11 million [illegal migrants] are not sitting on their duff. They’re working somewhere. They may be working under a fake Social [Security Number], they may be working as an independent subcontractor, but they’re working and they’ve got skills. A lot of these workers working in the underground economy, used to work for [construction company] people like me. They were let go because of ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] audits or Social Security No Matches, or insurance audits or whatever, and yet they’re 11 to 12 million people in...
    President-elect Joe Biden said Wednesday that his priorities for the first 100 days of his administration will be “a pathway to citizenship” for 11 million illegal immigrants and overturning a number of President Donald Trump’s executive orders which pertain specifically to climate change concerns. “I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America,” Biden told NBC Nightly News. “I will also be moving to do away with some of the, I think, very damaging executive orders that have significantly impacted on making the climate worse and making us less healthy, from methane to a whole range of things the president has done [that have] eviscerated the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency.” (RELATED: ‘Pro-Labor, Pro-Worker Administration’: Labor Leaders Expect Union Resurgence Under A Biden Presidency) During the second presidential debate, Biden emphasized his commitment to...
    A federal judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Wednesday to restart its tacit cooperation with the coyotes who help deliver foreign children and teenagers to employers and illegal-migrant parents in the United States. DHS officials say the judge’s reopening of the “Unaccompanied Alien Children” (UAC) pipeline threatens border agents with the coronavirus disease. American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) progressives and immigration lawyers asked the judge to restore the inflow of the smuggled youths and children which has been blocked by President Donald Trump. The ruling “is a critical step in halting the Trump administration’s unprecedented and illegal attempt to expel children under the thin guise of public health,” said lead ACLU lawyer Lee Gelernt. The border agencies have expelled “more than 13,000 children in need of protection, who were legally entitled to apply for asylum,” he complained. But the focus on “children” hides the transfer of teenage workers...
    The City of Guyton could violate Georgia law governing the use of SPLOST revenues if it approves a measure slated for Tuesday’s council meeting. The agenda lists “Consideration to Approve the City Manager to Coordinate with the County regarding the Guyton Prison Work Detail” and the city’s agenda packet details a five-page agreement with Effingham County in which the city would compensate the county for use of inmates held at the Effingham County Correctional Institute in Springfield. Under contract with the Georgia Department of Corrections, Effingham County Prison houses 192 nonviolent inmates that have a sentence ranging from a few months to a few years. The prison labor contract outlines a correctional facility supervisor M-F from 7:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M, 8-12 inmates per detail, and a compensation package of $47,000 – which includes health benefits, retirement, payroll taxes,...
    Joe Biden’s open-borders migration policy ignores the obvious way for the government to help Americans get wage raises, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., told SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “The simple way to help workers to get pay raises is to mandate the use of the E-Verify system,” Cotton said in the October 23 interview, adding: You’re not going to impose a wage mandate on anyone. You just have to tell every company in this nation that they will use the E-Verify system to verify the legal eligibility for applicant employees to work. That will automatically help raise wages for American workers, not for illegal aliens. The E-Verify system allows hiring companies to quickly and easily verify job applicants’ legality, at no cost to the employer. But instead of raising wages by the use of E-verify, Biden is promising to flood Americans’ labor market by legalizing the nation’s...
    President Donald Trump dodged a town hall question about the roughly 700,000 young illegal migrants protected by the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty, saying, “We’re going to take care of Dreamers.” “We’re going to take care of Dreamers. It’s working right now. We’re negotiating different aspects of immigration and immigration law,” he said at the October 15 NBC town hall meeting. The “Dreamers” comment refers to President Barack Obama’s 2020 decision to give work permits to hundreds of thousands of younger illegal aliens amid mass unemployment of Americans during the slow recovery from the great recession. Trump couched his answer in the context of political negotiations over blue-collar migration from Mexico and other nations: We’ve built now over 400 miles of border wall on the southern border. Mexico is working very closely with us. We have the strongest border we’ve ever had. We want people to come...
    A group of Republican senators is asking the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to review the cost to Americans of a Democrat plan that provides United States jobs, stimulus checks, and taxpayer-funded health care to illegal aliens. In May and this month, House Democrats passed two versions of the “HEROES Act,” (which offers amnesty to several million illegal aliens who can be deemed as working “critical infrastructure” jobs in the U.S. and thus cannot be deported. The Democrats’ first version of the HEROES Act (H.R. 6800) offered a similar amnesty — giving businesses the ability to hire cheaper illegal aliens for scarce U.S. jobs even as tens of millions of Americans remain unemployed. Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), and Mike Lee (R-UT) have sent a letter to the CBO asking for a review of the impact the HEROES Act’s amnesty and illegal immigration enticements would have on Americans...
    Business groups, labor brokers, and migration advocates are protesting a draft regulation that would open up many thousands of outsourced white-collar jobs to debt-burdened U.S. graduates. The regulation would put a four-year limit on the F-1 student visas, instead of the current lax rules which allow unsupervised and unlimited stays. Many foreigners use the lax rules to overstay their visas and to work for many years illegally in white-collar jobs, often in Fortune 500 gig-worker jobs that are needed by U.S. graduates to launch their careers. “The foreign graduates are in competition with American graduates for jobs, and industry likes this because it is yet another source of labor,” said John Miano, a lawyer with the Immigration Reform Law Institute. There is no reliable data about the resident number of white-collar overstays, Miano said. “Deliberate ignorance has been part of the [government’s] political strategy” to hide the economic impact of...
    Wealthy Americans have quietly fired and discarded many of their illegal migrant house cleaners since the coronavirus economic crash, often without warning or compensation, says the New York Times: The pandemic has had devastating consequences for a wide variety of occupations, but housekeepers have been among the hardest hit. Seventy-two percent of them reported that they had lost all of their clients by the first week of April, according to a survey by the National Domestic Workers Alliance. The fortunate had employers who continued to pay them. The unlucky called or texted their employers and heard nothing back. They weren’t laid off so much as ghosted, en masse. The article, and the quoted pro-migration activists, only hinted at the hypocrisy of elites who applaud migration and diversity but discard their illegal migrant employees without warning or compensation. But the article also sidelined the damage done to Americans’ labor market by...
    ANDOVER (CBS) — The state’s labor relations board ruled that Andover teachers participated in an illegal strike last week. Last Monday, teachers refused to enter school buildings for professional development, working outside instead in protest of the district’s reopening plan. Teachers “engaged in an unlawful strike when they refused to enter school buildings on August 31, 2020,” the Employment Relations Board concluded. Air quality in the buildings is one of the teachers’ top concerns. Union officials considered the move was a “work safety action” as opposed to a strike but the board ruled that teachers failed to “report to duty,” even though they worked at picnic tables outside, by not entering the school buildings. Read The Ruling (PDF) Teachers “reluctantly” went inside to work the next day. The state has ordered the teachers union and its members to stop engaging in any kind of strike or work stoppage. The first...
    CLAIM: During the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Monday evening, Donald Trump Jr. said Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden “wants to bring in more illegal immigrants to take jobs from American citizens.” VERDICT: True. Biden’s immigration plan would flood the United States labor market with newly legalized illegal aliens to compete against Americans. “Biden also wants to bring in more illegal immigrants to take jobs from American citizens,” Trump Jr. said. “His open border policies would drive wages down for Americans at a time when low-income workers were getting real wage increases for the first time in modern history.” Indeed, Biden is offering an immigration agenda that gives amnesty to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens who currently live in the U.S. Such a plan would flood the labor market with newly legalized illegal aliens who would immediately start competing for jobs against working- and middle-class Americans. Biden’s plan...
    Rideshare giants Uber and Lyft were so upset over a California law that would make their contract workers into better-paid and benefitted employees that they threatened to cease operations in the state if it was not repealed. That tactic, known as a “capital strike,” is an undemocratic means for private corporations to subvert the whims of democratically-elected legislators and voters — which is perhaps why it would have been illegal in many other countries with stronger unions and regulations. On Thursday, an appeals court in California ruled that Lyft and Uber can continue to avoid classifying their drivers as employees within that state, issuing a temporary stay on a preliminary injunction order that would have forced the ridehailing companies to immediately reclassify their drivers as employees. The court has scheduled arguments for Oct. 13, but it is unlikely that a final ruling will be issued before the next election on Nov. 3. At that time,...
    A new ad by President Trump’s re-election campaign goes after Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden for wanting to flood the United States labor market with millions of illegal aliens. The ad notes Biden’s support for providing amnesty to the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. — a plan that Democrats have said is first on their list if they sweep the November elections — while acknowledging that immigration is a labor issue, a populist principle that Biden has long denied. “Citizenship … for 11 million undocumented folks,” Biden says in the ad. “That means 11 million illegal immigrants competing for American jobs, eligible for free healthcare, Social Security, and Medicare,” a narrator states. “America can’t afford Joe Biden.” Indeed, Biden’s immigration plan includes an amnesty for illegal aliens currently living in the U.S., freeing all future border crossers into the country while they await...
