Feds may have held off Arizona law, but border law gets the green light

From Restore Fairness blog. Although a federal judge struck down on some of Arizona’s anti-immigrant law SB 1070’s major provisions in a critical victory, the untrue notion that Washington has lost control of the border remains. Within this atmosphere of hate and misinformation, President Obama signed a $600 million bill that increases appropriations for border security in a piecemeal approach to immigration reform, leading to profound disappointment at Congress’s decision to propose, promote, and pass border enforcement bill HR 6080.

UnChallenged Sexist Assumptions

Now, I am no fan of either Hillary or Obama for this reason, they are both going to enable global labor arbitrage on steroids.  That said, I have to point out a very sexist assumption that is truly offensive against Hillary Clinton.

What is that sexist assumption?  

Hillary IS Bill

I've seen policy enacted in the Bill Clinton administration as being assigned to Hillary.  Articles and articles written which assume whatever Bill Clinton wants, is endorsing, is pushing as policy agenda, then Hillary must also agree with it.

That is sexism.  

Hillary is not Bill

You might be so oblivious to sexism you may not understand why assigning Bill's administration and policy positions to Hillary is an issue.

The Mitt Romney Immigration Double Speak

Mitt Romney wants to send your job to China and if he can't do that, he wants to bring in cheaper foreign labor to displace you anyway.




While Mitt Romney trudges across Iowa blasting his opponents on illegal immigration, look at how willing he is to labor arbitrage other Americans and increase guest worker Visas!  While wages and costs are some of the legitimate concerns on illegal immigration, magically, middle class professionals are perfectly acceptable for displacement!

Is John Edwards Getting it on H-1B guest worker Visas? Chris Dodd too?

H-1B for Dummies
Earlier I wrote a piece exposing Edwards history for promoting more labor arbitraging guest worker Visas, yet in a recent NPR debate he sounds like he might be realizing Americans are being displaced, or at least is feeling the heat.  

This is a good thing, certainly most of Edwards positions are more in line with working America (see Clinton on H-1B and yes Obama is about as bad).

Congress & Corporations Don't Want to Invest in Super Smart Americans

Baby Genius
Yesterday, a very popular amendment that would have funded programs for super smart kids and created college scholarships for Americans was gutted by the Conferees, yes that's our House representatives and Senators, to the H.R. 3043: Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2008. The amendment would increase fees on H-1B employers by $3,500.  About $3,000 of this fee increase would be targeted to $15,000 scholarships in math, science, engineering, and healthcare.  About $500 of the fee increase would be dedicated to the Jacob Javits Gifted and Talented Program.
