As Mark Twain pointed out: “There is no distinctly native American criminal class save Congress,” and “No man’s [or woman’s] life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.”
Will people wait until it is too late and they learn first hand what’s at stake to take action? “A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.” (Mark Twain)
Contact your Senators to Oppose Senate Bills S386, S2091, S328, S1744 and any similar bills. Make sure they mark down the numbers, along with your opposition. Contact the Immigration Subcommittee chairs and ask for a fair hearing and debate. The House sneaked its version (HR1044) through in 3 days with virtually no debate: https://www.senate.gov/senators/How_to_correspond_senators.htm
After calling your Senators, spread the word to your family and friends; tweet, and write!
50 YEARS AGO AMERICAN WOMEN & MEN SENT AMERICANS TO THE MOON.
SOVIET-RUSSIA ALLY INDIA DID NOT. WE DON’T NEED INDIA’S WORKERS.
WE NEED TO GIVE AMERICAN WORKERS A CHANCE AGAIN.
INDIA HAS 18% OF THE WORLD POPULATION & THE BIGGEST GREEN CARD BACKLOG. NO GREEN CARD CAPS & “FAMILY” JOINING MEANS THE US WILL QUICKLY BECOME A COLONY OF INDIA.
THEY ARE ALSO GIVEN “MINORITY” STATUS & GOVERNMENT CONTRACT SET ASIDES MEANT FOR AFRICAN-AMERICANS.
IN AMERICA THEY HAVE A MEDIUM HOUSEHOLD INCOME OF $100,000 & DEEP POCKETS MOST AMERICANS LACK.
India’s population is growing so fast that as of 2019 it is 18% of the world population, rather than the 17% which we used here.
S386 is constantly discussed in the media of India and barely discussed in the United States. S386 has well paid lobbyists, whereas the truth has what seems to be a handful of volunteers.
The US House version of the bill was sneaked through.
These immigration policy decisions define the future of the country, and, at minimum, warrant proper debate.
In the case of lifting of per country green card caps and doubling “family” joining, the impacts will be almost immediate, and largely irreversible, since green cards are permanent residency cards, which easily and quickly turn into citizenship. It would apparently increase the number of immigrants effectively buying their green cards through comparatively small “investment” in the United States, as well.
Family joining means that not only the new resident-citizen’s children (including adult), parents, siblings, can immigrate. The parents and spouses have siblings, the adult children have spouses, who have siblings and parents, and so, through marriage, entire villages, towns, and eventually countries can immigrate. The only barrier is green card country caps, or people not wanting to immigrate to the United States.
Regarding the House Bill HR1044, US Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS @RepGosar:
“Last night the House passed a Green Card Giveaway gift wrapped for #BigTech at the expense of American workers. We should be putting American workers first, not consolidating green cards to two countries.” 1:41 PM · Jul 11, 2019 https://archive.li/cHgd5
India’s population is 1.334 billion; China’s population is 1.39 billion and the United States population is 326 million, as of 2017. The huge US population growth is due to letting in increasing numbers of legal immigrants over the last half century – now around 1 million per year. India’s population growth is due to failure to use birth control. China required birth control, but their population was already very large, when it became widely available
Thus, it shouldn’t be surprising that there is a backlog with country caps from India, and also for China. And, that with 7% per country cap removed and family joining doubled to 15% that the majority of green cards will be to the most populous countries – India and China.
Unless a permeable (i.e. 7% country cap) or impermeable (no immigrants) immigration barrier is put into place, the flood of humans from overpopulated countries to less populated countries will not stop until the world overpopulation is distributed.
India is expected to add 273 million people between 2019 and 2050, i.e. 83% of the entire current US population. As of 2019, India is 18% of world population and China 19%. India’s population is growing so quickly that our summary, which said 17%, is outdated already. https://population.un.org/wpp/Publications/Files/WPP2019_Highlights.pdf
Recall that: “Diffusion is net movement of anything (e.g., atom, ions, molecules) from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration. Diffusion is driven by a gradient in concentration.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffusion In this case the movement is of people who are unimpeded.
Don’t buy into the immigrant sob stories about how long they have “waited”. These aren’t refugees or asylum seekers. They are economic migrants. They can return home with work experience.
Think of your fellow Americans who are unemployed or separated from their families, because they must work in another state, or abroad, because an immigrant stole their job.
Think of Americans who cannot get their spouses into the country, and are separated from them, and sometimes divorce, because immigrants have backlogged the system.
Think, for example, of this American computer programmer, who is a veteran and must work as a janitor because of US immigration policy: https://keepamericaatwork.com/not-getting-any-response-from-your-congressman-or-senator/
It’s not just Tech workers, however. Americans have been losing jobs to foreigners in non-technical fields, where there have long been an oversupply of graduates.
