URGENT ACTION ALERT:
Secret Dealing to Kill Americans’ Jobs
& Increase Mass Immigration
Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) tried to push through his Job Killing S.386 which would admit 300,000 Indian workers per year plus their families plus others, on Unanimous Consent (i.e., without hearings or votes). But this was temporarily stopped by Senators Perdue (R-GA) and Paul (R-KT) who subsequently lifted their objections.
But then Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) vetoed Unanimous Consent so he could introduce his RELIEF Act to greatly increase Legal Immigration in addition:
- 4 Million Green Card (permanent resident!) increase within the next five years thus making virtually all the Indian and other H1bs and family permanent residents on a path to Citizenship and Voting rights
- 100,000 Green Card per year increase for Immigrant family members
- Eliminate ALL! per-country Green Card caps
Now Lee and Durbin are working to “marry” the two bills in Secret Negotiations in the Dead of Night, Sources inform us.
Once this Unholy “Marriage” is completed, these Senators hope there is no roadblock to approval by Unanimous Consent (i.e., with NO public hearings and no Recorded Votes) clearing the way for another unholy Marriage with the H.R. 1044 Job Killing House Bill already passed.
Help CCN Stop this Secret Effort by finding Senators willing to stand firm against Unanimous Consent, and by taking the Other Actions recommended in our recent Alert below.
Oppose/Expose S.386 USA Jobs
Giveaway & Sellout Senators
Every year, 800,000 Americans graduate from College but S.386 (Harris D-CA) would give these jobs to 300,000 Indian contract workers per year, plus other H1Bs which would be admitted under S.386! Worse many Senators pushing this Bill are Selling out American Workers by following the Lead of Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) who has received Donations from the following Big “Cheap” Labor Lobby companies:
Microsoft, $33,000; Google, $18,400; Amazon, $12,500; Oracle, $11,000; Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook, $11,000 and the Koch-owned Koch Agronomic Services, $11,000. (cf OpenSecrets.org)
So Ask Senator Lee what his priorities are — Jobs for Citizens of Utah and the USA or for the Cheap Labor Lobby Mega-Companies who have donated lavishly to him.
Fortunately, a CCN Activist facilitated stopping Senator Lee’s attempt to have S.386 approved on “Unanimous Consent” by emphasizing to Senator Perdue (R-Georgia), S.386’s disastrous consequences for Americans which Perdue initially recognized then rescinded his opposition, thus caving to the Cheap Labor Lobby. The House version of S.386 passed weeks ago.
But now, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), has nixed Unanimous Consent, saying that S.386 does not allow enough Legal Immigrants! Incredible!
Act NOW! Ask your Senator to reveal their Donor List and to publicly oppose the High-skilled American jobs giveaway Bill — S.386 and Insist they take a stand Against Mass Legal Immigration which is a magnet for Illegal Aliens, who aspire to fill the Legal Immigration “Slots” like the uncapped Asylee Category. Contact your Senators’ local offices now and tell them what you think.
Worse, under S.386 other relatively low-skilled H1Bs and Immigrants in other categories would continue to take jobs from Americans and depress American Wages and to increase costs to American Taxpayers who subsidize the Globalist companies which hire these Immigrant workers. (See CCN’s Net Costs of Legal Immigration Study). There is no shortage of skilled American Workers as the three studies on which we earlier reported show.
Breitbart.com reports on these Bill’s specific negative consequences.
“[House] GOP legislators (140) voted for a bill drafted by business groups and Democrats which provides a green card giveaway to 300,000 Indian contract workers and dramatically increases the incentives for more Indian graduates to take college graduate jobs in the United States. ...&rdquot;
“Kevin McCarthy, 140 GOP Reps Vote for Democrat Plan to Outsource Jobs,” breitbart.com 07/10/2019
Moreover, these bills could be joined with the Dream and Promise Act which would legalize DACA Aliens and Millions of Illegal Immigrants also passed earlier this year by the House.
In sum, if both are passed by the Senate and signed by President Trump, they would dramatically increase Legal Immigration and Job Displacement and Wage Depression of American Workers and costs to Taxpayers.
The Strategy to Stop These Bills
CCN has for years laid out The Strategy for stopping such bills and reducing Legal and Illegal Immigration.
Unfortunately, CCN’s Strategy (see our “The Only Way to Stop Mass Immigration” series et al at CarryingCapacity.org) has not been adopted by certain other Major National allegedly Reductionist, but de facto Mass Immigration Management, Groups.
The Management Groups need to Adopt The Only Strategy which will Work which is outlined in the following excerpts from our recent Alert, “MASS Legal Immigration — An Intensifying Threat.”
1. Stopping Illegal Immigration requires Reducing Legal Immigration
Indeed, the large numbers of “Slots” Available to Legal Immigrants (e.g., especially 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.
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 (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 for Each Congressional District. That is, the 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. See www.carryingcapacity.org.
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
There is no shortage of American Workers! See recent Immigrant Employment Data from CIS.org in CCN's previous Alerts.
The Solution: CCN has, for years, supported an all-categories-included Zero-Net MORATORIUM on LEGAL Immigration. Call your Senators today to get them to reveal their donors, oppose S.386 and Support an all-categories-included Moratorium.
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.
CCN’s MORATORIUM Advocacy maximizes Political pressure for substantial reduction in Legal Immigration, quite unlike plans advocated by other National Immigration “Reform” Groups, i.e., Groups which refuse to push a Moratorium and therefore are de facto Mass Immigration MANAGEMENT Groups; not genuine reduction groups. If enacted, their positions are counterproductive because they would ensure unending MASS Immigration.
CCN also exposes and opposes Cultural Marxism — driven by MASS Immigration — and which is The Major Force driving Political Correctness, Mass Immigration, Multi-Culturalism, Identity Politics, and Destruction of Western Nations and their Traditions, and ANTIFA.
4. POPULATION GROWTH CONSEQUENCES
In the background, world population increases by about 80 million per year, and pressure to come to U.S.A. will only surge upwards. Since 2005, an average of 1.5 Million Legal Immigrants settled in the U.S.A. annually. Recently, 1.6-1.7 Million have settled here annually. The US Census reports that 400,000 legal immigrants per year settle in California alone.
5. ENVIRONMENTAL CONSEQUENCES OF MASS IMMIGRATION
i. FARMLAND & NATURAL HABITAT LOSS
ii. “For Every Person added to U.S. (or California’s) Population, one Acre of precious Farmland or Natural Habitat is lost to Developed Uses (e.g., Malls, Urban Sprawl, Tract Housing) (Pimentel et al, Cornell)
iii. California: Potable water demands from growing cities and from ground water depletion far in excess of recharge rates) have led to a long-term Potable Water Crisis resulting in some jurisdictions (e.g., all of Orange County, California) being forced to drink “Toilet to Tap Water” in recent years. One year of heavy rains has not solved this problem
iv. Our Zero-Net Moratorium push sends the Critical message that we must Stop MASS Legal Immigration in order to protect our environment.
As well, Legal and Illegal Immigration is a Major cause of Increased Homelessness and Crowding (and higher Taxes everywhere in the USA) especially in those Areas which receive large numbers of Immigrants — New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles.
Consider California, which receives about 400,000 Legal Immigrants per Year. California has many attractions, generous Taxpayer-funded benefits among them.
For example, in addition to the aforementioned Costs, there are other very substantial Impacts. Those 400,000 Legal Immigrants plus the hundreds of thousands of Illegal Immigrants create a great and increasing demand for Housing. And since many of the Legal Immigrants especially are well-heeled and heavily subsidized by U.S. taxpayers, they have the Financial ability to “crowd out” the most impoverished Americans — many of whom end up living in the streets, or, if they are “lucky” in tent cities and Trailers. This Demographic Impact is merely the beginning.
The crowding of taxpayers-funded schools, roads, hospitals, emergency rooms and public Transportation Systems is largely a result of MASS immigration, both legal and illegal.
“ [I]mmigration overload has adversely impacted the carrying capacity of many schools … Especially K to 12
“… 23% of students in public schools Today are from immigrant households High Immigration States have seen even more dramatic increases … Nevada 35%, New Jersey 34% Texas 31%, . Even in states that are not traditional Immigrant Destinations — Minnesota, Alaska, Kansas, 1 in 7 students are from immigrant households ”
Christopher Daly, The Impact of Immigration on Public Education, Campoc Inc / NPG, March 2018
Therefore, please push your Congressional Representatives hard NOW to reveal their Donors and:
- FULLY FUND THE WALL AND END CATCH AND RELEASE
- Implement E-VERIFY
- End Anchor Baby BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP and forbid H1B and other Immigrant Workers' children from obtaining it.
- Eliminate all CHAIN MIGRATION except for spouses & minor children of U.S. citizens
- Outlaw Sanctuary Cities and States, because they are Magnets for criminals
- Refuse admission to those convicted of a crime — jail or deport them
- And above all Push for an All-Categories-Included Zero-Net MORATORIUM on Legal Immigrants and, of course, a “NO” Vote on S.386 and "NO" on Durbin's Relief Act.
Please help Carrying Capacity Network intensify our PUSH for the policies above by increasing our Activist Mobilization, Media, lobbying and public education efforts with a tax-deductible donation.
Any donation, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated. Now is the Time to Donate for Maximum Effect!
The 2020 Election Campaign is already underway!
And 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. (See unfairus.org which describes the adverse effects National Immigration Management groups’ Actions had on Arizona Activists’ attempts to reduce immigration into Arizona.)
One National group focuses SOLELY on ILLEGAL Immigration which is futile because large numbers of legal slots are a Magnet for Illegals, so to reduce Illegal we MUST also reduce Legal "Slots".
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.
