URGENT ACTION ALERT
Help Push for a Permanent Moratorium — Save Job Opportunities for Unemployed Americans Only
Over 35 Million Americans are now unemployed, including 135,000 Healthcare Workers. But Speaker Pelosi’s so called “Heroes” Act just barely passed by the House would allow the Admission of 150,000 Foreign Healthcare Workers to take American healthcare jobs.
But While the Heroes Act would also provide funding for unemployed legal immigrants workers, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom just authorized payment of $125Million to Illegal Alien Workers -- $75 Million from California Taxpayers and $50 Million from Corporate Donors (who just love that Cheap, i.e., U. S. Taxpayer-subsidized, Labor).
But CCN and its ASAP! Coalition Allies’ Leadership in pushing for a Moratorium is started to bear fruit at the National level. Four Senators and three Representatives are pushing to Make President Trump’s Moratorium permanent.
“Last month, President Trump authorized a temporary suspension of almost all immigration into the United States. With the exception of agricultural temporary workers, no other foreign workers are allowed into the country.
“This was common sense. It makes ZERO sense to continue importing foreign workers into the America when we have this many people who have lost their jobs.
“But President Trump's order is only temporary. He had to use an executive order to do it, and it is already being challenged in courts.
“That is why Conservatives in Congress are standing up to make it more permanent. Senators Cruz (R-TX), Cotton (R-AR), Grassley (R-IA), and Hawley (R-MO) are working together with Representatives Gaetz (R-FL), Gosar (R-AZ), and Gooden (R-TX) to make Trump's immigration suspension more permanent.
“Of course, the Democrats want to stop them. They are still trying to use this crisis as an excuse to bring as many people into our country as possible!...
“Think about that for a second. 1 in 5 Americans have lost their jobs, by no fault of their own.
“And the Democrats' solution to this is to import more foreign workers into the country to take American jobs…
“If their goal is to protect American lives and livelihoods, it makes absolutely no sense. But that never has been the Democrats' goal… They have never cared about putting Americans first.
“President Trump's order gave an exception for agricultural visas. He knew that if he cut off those workers, food would stop making it to market and Americans would starve. But fore every other job out there, Trump's directive is clear: if there is an American willing to do the work, companies cannot hire foreigners instead.
“That is precisely what the bill being pushed by these GOP Representatives and Senators would do. It would make it illegal for American companies to hire a foreigner if there is even one American willing and able to do the job….”
“Here We Go: GOP Senators Pushing To Make Trump’s Immigration Shutdown Permanent!,” Joe Otto, conservative-daily.com, 05/10/2020
The Great Threat is that when we just get over the “Hump” of CoVID-19 Spread in the USA, we expect the Open Borders lobby to redouble efforts to pass all the Open Borders Bills which CCN took the lead on stopping in November and December 2019 (Important to see CCN’s Alerts for specifics of these Bills). Indeed, it is likely the influence of the Open Borders lobby which caused President Trump to limit his Moratorium Order to 60 days and to not include temporary Work Visas.
Indeed, Current Holders of H1b Visas and their Spouses holding H-4 Visas are still allowed to work!
The foregoing illustrates why it is even more important for we reductionists to redouble our efforts to push an all-categories-included Zero-NET Moratorium on Legal Immigration NOW.
Pushing merely for incremental reductions (e.g., full implementation of e-Verify but only that) while well-intended is utterly futile, because, alone it fails to delegitimize and counter the whole enterprise of Mass Legal and Illegal Immigration. Only pushing for an all-categories-included Zero-NET Moratorium does that!
In sum, only CCN and its ASAP! Coalition Allies have The Strategy for Success.
Important to remember that CCN is a Genuine Mass Immigration REDUCTION Group, so Donations to CCN have far more impact dollar for dollar than Donations to Mass Immigration MANAGEMENT Groups who refuse to support a Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal.
Therefore, CCN invites once again all genuine REDUCTIONIST organizations to Join our Diversity Coalition for an Immigration MORATORIUM . . . a Coalition supported by many Immigrants from all Ethnic Groups.
CARRYING CAPACITY NETWORK IS PRO-IMMIGRANT, ANTI-MASS-IMMIGRATION.
Unfortunately, the two largest Management Groups continue to de facto undermine our efforts to reduce legal and illegal immigration.
One says its goal is to stop Illegal Immigration, but it refuses to acknowledge the Magnet effect the uncapped and other Categories in Legal Immigration have on drawing in illegal immigrants.
The other group says it is for “lower immigration levels” but that too is entirely Counterproductive because it sends the Message that Mass Immigration is OK but just at lower levels. And thus it claimed a Victory in keeping Open Borders Provisions our of the recently enacted Stimulus Bill, while, in fact, that Bill actually authorized $350 Million for “Migration & Refugee Assistance”!!
As we have been saying for over ten years, the Only Position which generates enough Political Power to get reductions in Legal and Illegal immigration is to advocate a, All-Categories-Included Zero-Net Moratorium. Consider:
1. Stopping Illegal Immigration requires greatly Reducing Legal Immigration
Indeed, the large numbers of “Slots” Available to Legal Immigrants (e.g., the de facto Unlimited Asylee Category) creates a Magnet effect for Illegal Aliens.
Indeed, the Uncapped Asylee category encourages Trafficking of Children, because it allows any adult bringing a child into the U.S. to become a de facto permanent resident and potential Citizen!
2. Regarding Costs, consider this summary of CCN’s NET COSTS Study:
U.S. Taxpayers Costs from legal immigration alone - $330 BILLION PER YEAR NET (i.e., after subtracting Taxes Immigrants pay) , i.e.:
i. $3.3 TRILLION NET prospectively for the next Decade if Legal immigration is not reduced.
ii. Does NOT include COSTS borne by States and Localities.
iii. $758 MILLION per Year NET for Each Congressional District. That is, the NET costs of legal immigration average $1000 per U.S. Taxpayer per year!
iv. 62% of legal immigrants get one or more “free” (i.e., U.S. Taxpayer-funded) Health Care, Health Insurance, Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing & Welfare.
3. EMPLOYMENT CONSEQUENCES
i. CCN Study — 5.9 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE BEEN DISPLACED from JOBS SINCE 2005 by IMMIGRANT WORKERS (NOT including those recently displaced by the Pandemic). See Carrying Capacity Network Employment 2019 among other CCN Alerts that expose these anti-American workers policies.
ii. Confirmed by two other studies, e.g., by Professor of Computer Science, U.C. Davis, Norm Matloff Blog, “Vast Majority of H1B and related visa hires are Cheap Labor Hires”
iii. And by Economist Ed Rubenstein writing for vdare.com
For years, there has not been a shortage of American Workers! See recent Immigrant Employment Data from CIS.org in CCN’s previous Alerts. And, now that there are over 35 Million Unemployed Americans, there will be no shortage for years.
The number of immigrants admitted annually consistent with Zero-Net Immigration would be approximately 150,000 (the approximate number who emigrate every year), in contrast to the current number of approximately 1.6 million annually.
The Solution: CCN has, for years, supported is an all-categories-included Zero-Net MORATORIUM on LEGAL Immigration. Contact your Senators and Representatives today to oppose the Open Borders Bills and Support a Permanent all-categories-included Moratorium.
The Threat is Intensifying as we approach Corona Peak.
