Tech Firms Set to Benefit from New Rule

“Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Department has just ramped up its assault on the American middle class. In response to lobbying pressure from the trillion-dollar technology industry, this week DHS announced a new regulation that will dramatically expand the number of foreign STEM-degree (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) holders allowed to work in the tech industry. This is just the latest of several moves from Obama at the end of his final term to flood the American labor market with workers from foreign countries,” says Ian Smith of IRLI.

    I thought the number of H1B visas was set by Congress. I guess I forgot that we have a king now, and a Congress that won’t stand up to him. He just issues an executive order and it all goes his way. Of course, he’s the same guy who promised when he was running that he would either rewrite or repeal NAFTA because of the factory jobs in Illinois that were lost to Mexico. Not only did he not try to do that, but he’s pushing the TPP “free trade” deal which is NAFTA times ten.

    But the public has the attention span of a gnat. And the media decides who wins or loses these fake debates. I am not a JEB fan but I heard what he said to Rubio about resigning the Senate. So what? But the press portrays it as some great disaster, some terrible gaffe. This is like 1984. Believe what you’re told.

      As an illustration, everyone remembers the “Dean Scream”. But how many people know the loud crowd noise was edited out of that, so it looked like Dean was hollering in a quiet room. Would he have gone on to win? Possibly not but the media portrayed his as a nut.

    BO and Jeh Duh are scum, and haven’t we endured enough from them and the rest of the imbeciles, in this dung heap of an administration already?
