Despite the intentionally deceptive narrative crafted for public consumption by this administration and its accomplices in the news media, the jobs picture in the United States continues to be dismal, as the CEO of Gallup has declared in an extraordinary interview on Fox News recently. Even as millions of Americans fruitlessly scramble for gainful employment, the federal government continues to search for means of hobbling an already anemic economy.
One such method is by increasing the number of visas issued under the fraud-ridden H-1B program, a cause dear to the heart of Senator Orrin Hatch, who has already introduced legislation to that effect in this session of Congress. Yet even as Hatch does the bidding of Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and his astroturf open borders cutout, extremely skilled IT workers in the state of California are being made redundant by foreign nationals utilizing H-1b visas.
At the purportedly high end of the immigration food chain lies the EB-5 visa for immigrant investors. As Brian Ross points out in this ABC News investigation into the program, the problems inherent in the investor visa range all the way from potential criminality to incipient threats to homeland security. But don’t expect the people ostensibly responsible for protecting Americans to do something about this, because they have more important things to worry about. Namely, enacting President Obama’s program of minting a new class of dependents and future Democratic Party voters.
