Latest Immigration Bill Gets Broad Support

(KCPW News) After heated testimony from the community, the Senate Revenue and Taxation Committee voted 7-1 to move what’s being called a “comprehensive immigration reform bill” to the Senate floor last night. 78-year-old Alexandra Eframo, the child of immigrants herself, was one of many who told the committee the bill does not go far enough.

“I am opposed one million percent to this concept!” she argued. “This just breaks my heart. You people have degrees. You should be intelligent! I don’t understand your degree of lack of intelligence. We the people are speaking out. Please listen.”

Republican Senator Curt Bramble began drafting Senate Bill 288 in early December. He says the state needs a bill that incorporates enforcement provisions and a guest worker program intoo one plan to ensure the laws are coordinated.

“We wanted to have a bill that had enforcement, that had employer sanctions, that had E-Verify, had a state-based guest worker program, that had all of the provisions fit very well together,” said Bramble.

SB 288 also provides leeway for people already in the state illegally to remain with their families as workers. The only “no” vote yesterday came from Senate Minority Leader Ross Romero, who has argued the state shouldn’t be passing immigration bills of its own.

    The Trouble with every Guest Worker law is that we already have approximately 1.2 million legal immigrant workers inflowing to the job market annually. The current Guest Worker plan is packed with loopholes, allowing deceitful introduction of people on a grand scale. The H-2a program supposedly provides legal protections for foreign farm workers—such as a pledge of at least three quarters of the total employment hours promised, free housing, transportation compensation, medical care, and legal accountability; many of these protections exist only on paper. H-2b workers, on the other hand, have no civil rights or protections. The mistreatment of guest workers begins with the initial recruitment in their home country. It is practices that often leaves foreign workers in an insecure monetary state and therefore exceedingly open to mistreatment by unprincipled employers in this nation.

    Employers nationwide rely on private recruitment agencies to find guest workers or skilled job seekers in their homelands. Lawyers have successfully found these gaping holes and now this country is being flooded with middle of the road skilled workers, many from the Indian continent. Our country will only stay a world leader and sustain itself by promoting the highest echelon of skilled labor and not people who could be laid-off risking the safety net for our seniors, veterans, sick, mentally handicapped and blind. Instead of recruiting from other countries, companies should foresee hiring Americans and teach them the trade. The Statistics indicate we cannot even find jobs for 10 percent of the US population, why would Utah or any other State consider opening up the market, to millions of people who have less than a 8th grade education, having hidden criminal records or needy when they come here. Outside of the Guest worker visa programs we have millions of foreign nationals scrambling past our borders or overstaying visas, after entering the US by aircraft with intentions to remain. Many of these illegal aliens end up in the welfare lines or government entitlements. It is also projected that over 400.000 illegal pregnant women enter America annually, to conceive a child which inevitably earns birthright citizenship; very costly arrangement for overburden hospitals and taxpayers.

    It just essentially means extra welfare burdens on any State that enters into some kind of Guest Worker program with devious employers, who are out to profit from minimum pay workers. If you didn’t already know it, farmers who hire labor generally do not pay for any medical treatment, as its easier to dump the individual on the hospital steps or pay anything towards educating that persons children; taxpayers do? It’s a win-win situation called corporate welfare. Human rights advocates warn that the system seriously victimizes immigrant labor while politicians state these programs are designed to open up the legal labor market. But alternatively it has instead locked hundreds of thousands into form of indentured servitude not un-similar to 18th century slavery. Those Guest Workers, who are hired, usually are able to sponsor their wives and children and as we know many females are instant breeders and conceive more children that become instant citizens under the 14th Amendment.

    This is the first link in the chain migration enigma, which becomes another costly pay-out for American taxpayers. Usually speaking they do not make enough money to live, so many needs the help of churches and other public services. As I said, the whole situation for working visas is rampant with fraud by the lawyers and attorneys and they don’t care about working Americans search for jobs. The hotel Industry can also claim abuses and exploitation. Each year businesses petition for labor, but the truth it’s just another method to get around the 1986 immigration Simpson/Mazzoli bill, where millions of Guest Workers eventually gained amnesty and then left the farms and factories, to work in the mainstream market. Thereby taking jobs from mostly Blacks and Hispanics, who are legal with minimum job qualifications

    These circumstances is just another form of small amnesties, that are carefully engineered so they don’t cause to many ripples in the stream of public awareness. You have seen from previous ICE raids, that many companies deny they discriminate against legal Hispanic, white and black people. Yet they instead hire illegal foreign nationals as they can effortlessly exploit their conditions and wages. Utah legislators are already considering Guest Workers on a State law, but will eventually turn into another profit game and no legal labor allowed. Howard Industries is a great example of the fraudulent game, which turned away American citizens and legal residents and instead hired mainly illegal labor. They have just been fined over 2 million dollars, where 600 workers detected by ICE in lightening sweeps. Just like the meat packing and poultry industries for as soon as the illegal foreign workers were arrested, the companies were hectic with the legal people who needed jobs.

    This has become one hell of a crooked game about money, by bring into America cut-price workers. It should be made clear to employers, if you defraud the American people of jobs–the penalty will be harsh fines, confiscation of business assets and second offense–prison. Usually the highest rungs on the ladder remain unexposed and sometimes untouchable as middle management usually are punished for these sober exploitations. Since 2004 there have been 6 small amnesties of this caliber and little has been said in the Liberal press, but has taken jobs from citizens and residents. A full blown Whistle Blowing program should be implemented for the public to report suspicious irregularities, with a reward on conviction for businesses that carry on this fraud or the informer could just contact ICE. Some of the biggest culprits for stealing jobs from Americans are Sub-Contractors and Contractors who should have their licenses revoked if caught and punished severely. Americans in the Construction,

    Hotel and other services industries should scrutinize who is working at that company at every chance. We must adamantly demand–I SAID DEMAND OF THE WASHINGTON LEADERS AT 202-224-3121 AND STATE LEGISLATORS A MANDATED E-VERIFY PROGRAM, TO DETECT ILLEGAL ALIENS IN THE WORKPLACE.AND BOTH PREVIOUS AND NEW HIRES MUST BE AUDITED WITH I-9 (Workers Verification forms) THE PEOPLE are the power and so join the TEA Party and use your vote added to millions of other delusional Americans on immigration. Learn about the corruption of special interest lobbyists at Judicial Watch and everything you need to know about illegal immigration at NumbersUSA. IT’S YOUR COUNTRY? FIGHT FOR IT. SPEAK UP!

  2. Illegal immigrants are desperate and use less as good neighbors in the U.S. They break laws entering our country then are to scared to report criminal activity of which is a deep concern to U.S communities and citizens. Most illegal immigrants are lazy drunks, illegal drug users, not smart and business owners are to blame too for hiring / harboring them which makes them worse than the illegal immigrant. Also we should push congress to have all business owners / hiring managers in the U.S jailed & fined if they knowingly hire an illegal alien. Our U.S government corporations and business owners have figured out how to enslave, rob us, and kill us without even using a gun. These Guys R Evil Geniuses! Watch Out U.S Citizens & The International Poor! Every time a U.S business hires and illegal alien before a legal citizen is an assault or act of indirect violence to cause death to legal U.S citizens by financial impairing us.
