"We NEED a Visa program for foreign workers" - IT's a LIE!
Labor, business reach immigration deal
[snip]The visa program, which allows businesses to bring in up to 200,000 low-skilled workers annually
One of the best kept secrets by the media and political propagandists is that aliens won't come illegally if ONLY we had a guest worker program! DON'T believe it!
Here are just some of the current Visa Programs in place today:
H-1B: Person in Specialty Occupation (65,000 per year!)
H-2A: Temporary Agricultural Worker
H-2B: Temporary Non-agricultural Worker (USCIS Announces 58 Countries Whose Nationals are Eligible for H-2A and H-2B Participation)
H-3: Trainee or Special Education visitor
Special Immigrant Visas for Iraqis
Diversity Visa program
U visa Abused Illegal Immigrants
V Nonimmigrant Visas
(The V visa is a nonimmigrant visa created to allow families to stay together while waiting for the processing of immigrant visas.)
J-1 Visa, Alien Physician Program
Special Visas for Haitians, Columbians, etc.*
There are more than that, but that gives you an idea
Now...do you think we NEED more 'guest workers' and Visas????? REALLY?????
And guess what!!! Talk of Amnesty has opened the flood gates...we knew it would!
Exclusive: Illegal Border Crossings Double, Border Becomes Less Secure as Beltway Gets Close to Deal on Immigration Reform
[snip]As the immigration reform Gang of Eight inside the Beltway prepares to announce a deal later this week, claiming border security will come before a path to citizenship for millions of illegals, Border Patrol agents have seen illegal border crossings double and warn the cutting of agent work hours will only result in less border security, not more."We've seen the number of illegal aliens double, maybe even triple since amnesty talk started happening," an agent told Townhall, who asked to remain unnamed due to fears of retaliation within Customs and Border Protection [CBP], something he said is common. "A lot of these people, although not the majority, are criminals or aggravated felons. This is a direct danger to our communities."
Data obtained by Townhall and reported within CBP from February 5 through March 1, 2013 shows 504 illegal aliens were spotted exploiting the Tucson/Nogales area, 189 were caught on CBP intelligence cameras. Of those 504, only 174 were apprehended and 32 of the 189 on camera were carrying large drug load packs for Mexican cartels. Some were armed with AK-47 style weapons.
Fox News reported sections of the border will soon become unpatrolled as hours for on-the-ground agents are cut. Townhall has learned Border Patrol agents working the border have been fully funded, yet internal political battles within CBP may be causing funds to be funneled to managers, rather than those getting their boots dirty on patrols.[snip]
