Ted Cruz - The Controlled Opposition: How Another Foreign National Plans to be President of the United StatesSubmitted by barracuda_trader on Mon, 08/26/2013 - 07:00
This is the "TEA Party Conservative" Ted Cruz plan. While pounding the drum that he is opposed to Amnesty and wants a Secure Border, Ted hopes you don't hear the next two amendments he wants to add to Senate Bill 744. Ted wants to more than double immigration to this country at a time when almost half of working age Americans are out of work.
If that's isn't enough, he wants to increase the H1B visa FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT. These are the visas for highly skilled workers, you know, the jobs you send your kids to college for so they can get one of those good jobs. But Ted Cruz wants those jobs to go to foreigners, not Americans.
And if that isn't enough, Ted Cruz wants to DOUBLE the general worker visa. If you can't afford to send your kids to college, don't worry, Ted has a plan to keep them at home too - he'll make sure any job they could get also goes to foreigners. This is an Act of War Against America and the very definition of Treason in the US Constitution. This is Ted's amendments in pertinent part:
Cruz 1324: Green Card (LPR) reform to modernize, streamline and expand legal immigration
Provisions of his amendment include:
· Doubling the overall worldwide green card caps from 675,000 visas per year to 1.35 million per year (not including refugees and asylees): [This is in addition to the 1 million immigrants that come here every year without a work related visa.]
o Family-based green cards: Creates a single family-based visa category that treats all immigrant families equally by redefining “immediate relatives” as “spouses, minor children, and parents of citizens or LPRs.”
Cruz 1325: Increase high-skilled temporary worker visas (H-1B visas) five-fold
This amendment would increase the H-1B cap from 65,000 to 325,000. It would also help America retain the people it educates by authorizing dual-intent student visas and address the need for high-skilled labor by creating a block grant to promote domestic high-skilled workers. [Why are we educating foreigners while our own citizens drown in student debt?]
Cruz 1326: Combines Cruz 1324 and Cruz 1325. Implements Green Card reform to streamline and expand legal immigration and increases high-skilled temporary worker visas five fold. [These are for the good jobs Americans go to college to get, only to find companies hiring foreign nationals rather than them, and more often than not turn out to be permanent positions.]
