US Senate Slits American Workers' Throats
By Frosty Wooldridge
On November 4, 2005, 85 U.S. senators, voted into office to represent American citizens-instead-pulled out their knives and sliced American workers' throats. What occurred is unconscionable and brutally obscene.
We already suffer nearly one million lost American jobs from H-1B, H-2B and L-1 visas to foreigners and their families. Instead of working, our citizens stand in unemployment lines while we listen to broken English from an outsourced job to an employee from India or "Push two for Spanish" on our phones.
Senator Robert Byrd, a democrat from West Virginia presented an amendment to Budget Reconciliation Senate Bill #1932 to strip 350,000 H-1B visas. Our senators, at the highest portals of power, voted to override the amendment and steal those 350,000 jobs away from Americans and award them to strangers from other countries.
Have you ever gotten a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach when someone you respected betrayed you, lied to you, cheated you or screwed you by treacherous means? This one makes me sick to my stomach.
Only 13 senators voted to strip the bill of the 350,000 visas for foreigners. The following honorable senators voted to stop giving our jobs away: Akaka, Byrd, Dayton, Dodd, Dorgan, Durbin, Feingold, Landrieu, Rockefeller, Stabenow, Jeffords, Inhofe and Sessions.
The remaining 85 senators, bought off by the US Chamber of Commerce and mega bucks multinational corporations that hold a campaign-funding gun to their senatorial heads-voted against all of us. They won! We lost, again!
What's more, those senators want to INCREASE the current 1.1 million legal immigrants per year to ever higher numbers while they won't take a stinking step to secure our borders against the three million illegal aliens crossing our borders annually. They lawfully would like to increase horrific numbers of immigrants while they wink and nod at the massive invasion of illegal aliens. Who voted these senators into office anyway and how do they get re-elected every six years? Pray, tell me, who, in their right mind, keeps voting Teddy Kennedy into office decade after decade?
Since 1996, the Senate stands as a vast wasteland when it comes to concern about immigration competition undermining American workers and over-taxation of our cities' infrastructures. Why do they do it? They comprise a network of bought-off corporate lackeys under the thumb of money. That money ensures they get reelected because voters don't take time to study what's going on under their noses.
An American, Bill Gates of Microsoft, the richest man in the world, utilizes his immense financial power to add more H-1B visas. Gates stands as the premier example of corporate power buying off our elected officials. As if $50 billion in his bank account isn't enough! Personally, I find Gates' greed as sickening as Ken Lay of Enron.
Get this! We already suffer 900,000 H1-B, H-2B and L-1 visas that have stolen jobs away from American citizens. Those visas allow foreigners from China, India, Brazil and other countries to come over here and take jobs away from American citizens.
When our Senate had a chance to stop the next wave of 350,000 H-1B visas, they voted against you and me-and we're the ones who elected them. What's wrong with this picture? And, where does this insanity end? It doesn't because not enough Americans speak up.
There's an old story about a man who watched the Nazis take neighbors from their houses each night and he didn't speak out. Finally, they came for him and there was no one left to speak out for him, either. In all my columns you've read over the years, I'm speaking out to you so you can speak out to Bush and Congress. Congressman Tom Tancredo speaks out because he sees this immigration invasion's final consequences. The House's Immigration Reform Caucus jumped to 91 members which is the largest caucus in the House of Representatives. It needs to jump to 435 members! How is that going to happen so we can stop further wholesale H-1B, H-2B and L-1 visas given to hundreds of thousands of foreigners?
My father was a 27 year career United States Marine who fought in WWII and Korea. He died while in service to our country. He said, "Son, when you know you're right-stand up and speak out!"
Today, in America-our language and our way of life is undermined by the VERY leaders we elected into office at the highest levels. We've got a president who refuses to enforce our immigration laws and a Congress that does NOTHING to secure our borders from terrorist attacks and the onslaught of millions of illegal aliens.
If you don't speak out, who will? It takes every one of us, every day! Call your senators and congressmen at 1 877 762 8762. Demand they stop H-1B, H-2B and L-1 visas. Tell them to stop outsourcing, insourcing and offshoring of our jobs. Join www.numbersusa.com and become a weekly faxer. We've got 14 million Americans who would love to work those jobs. Tell them you want illegal immigration stopped and you want a moratorium on all immigration!
I'm tired of my own Congress slitting the throats of my fellow American citizens. It's time for us to take action.
