CALL Sen Hatch!!!!            

So it all may come down to this - MONDAY 5:30PM EDT - a vote on Shumer- Corker- Hoeven Amendment for Southern Border Security (plan, at the discretion of DHS).

An amendment to allow the largest AMNESTY or legalization (11 million plus) in US history AND a 20 million plus additional legal immigration wave.

We submitted thousands of Utahns' signatures to Sen Hatch's office in opposition, he apparently remains unconvinced. 
 Polled Utahns show little support for amnesty or legaliztion   Sen Hatch remains undecided.

The backroom amendment rewriting the entire bill is still surfacing at 1200 pages and appears to be one of those, like ObamaCare, 'we have to pass it, to see what it says bills.'  While it may sound good, promising border security, it ignores the interior and is still merely an optional plan.     Sen Hatch seems supportive.
Sen Lee, on the other hand, stays with the principle of solving the immigration issues separately 

The Schumer-Corker-Hoeven amendment goes on for 12 pages itemizing all the equipment that must be purchased for each border sector. Sen. Leahy called it a "Christmas wish list for Halliburton." But all you need to know is what's printed on page 30:

"If the Secretary determines that an alternate or new technology is at least as effective as the technologies described in paragraph (3) and provides a commensurate level of security, the Secretary may deploy that technology in its place and without regard to the minimums in this section. "

The amendment's supporters have also boasted about how it will require construction of 700 miles of border fencing (as already required under current law). But pg 34 says:

"Notwithstanding paragraph (1), nothing in this subsection shall require the Secretary to install fencing, or infrastructure that directly results from the installation of such fencing, in a particular location along the Southern border, if the Secretary determines that the use or placement of such resources is not the most appropriate means to achieve and maintain effective control over the Southern border at such location.

 


  CALL Sen Hatch!!!!       

Please, time is short.   It takes less than 5 minutes to call, if you can't say more , just say vote NO on corker Hoeven and no on AMNESTY.      As Sen. Shumer  said this IS about legalizing the illegal - there really is no other purpose for the bill.

From CCII in Southern UTAH:   "This Amendment is dubbed the Corker Hoeven Amendment. It looks good, makes a person feel good on the surface but changes nothing with the framework of granting amnesty to 10s of millions of law breaking illegal alien invaders. ICE Council President Chris Crane (a Utahn) wrote, "I am concerned that your amendment as outlined in that article not only provides immediate legalization before enforcement, but also appears to completely neglect interior enforcement," Crane wrote to the two senators working on this amendment quick-fix. "S. 744 drastically reduces the ability of ICE officers to do their jobs while providing legal status to convicted criminals including gang members, drunk drivers, and sex offenders. I can assure you these are not the types of "reforms" sought by the American public, in fact these are not reforms at all, but instead provisions written by special interest groups concerned only with their own political agendas and future financial gains." He spoke for all of us in that quote.

We are ALL reading identical publications, listening to the same radio and television pundits explain their versions of the latest news. But are we ALL DOING anything about it? Believe me, we ALL WILL SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES!

American Worker Replacement Act

Senate S.744 Immigration Legislation   should be renamed from,  Border Security and Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, (Summary)   to simply the American Worker Replacement Act,  because that is exactly what it does. We are not going to discuss the “amnesty”  and enforcement portion here, as bad as they are, but rather the flood of foreign legal labor that this legislation proposes, the purpose of which is to suppress wages.  S.744 was prepared by the political elite, immigrant support groups, cheap labor employers, and those that perceive Americans as too lazy to work at menial and physically demanding jobs, or they are too stupid to gain the education necessary to fill engineering and other STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)   jobs. 

This legislation will replace many unskilled American workers, including teenagers and students, most of whom have health insurance with their parents family plan.  Unskilled, low paid, foreign workers would have to be subsidized by government health programs such as, Medicaid paid for by the taxpayers.  Replacing American workers with foreign labor will also push more Americans on to food stamps and other welfare programs, costing the taxpayers even more.   Lower numbers of unskilled foreign workers would push wages for unskilled Americans up from about $7.25 per hour to perhaps $10 per hour or even more. 

S.744 creates a new visa guest worker program for unskilled workers on top of the existing guest worker programs.  The W visa program admits up to 200,000 more unskilled workers each year, and allows more under certain circumstances, such as when unemployment is below 8.5 for unskilled labor.  Workers can bring in spouses and children, not counted against the cap to be educated at taxpayer expense. They may also have more children born in the U.S. who become automatic citizens, at taxpayer expense. Employers are not required to provide health insurance for immigrant workers

S.744 expands existing guest worker programs such as the H-1B program, increasing the base cap from 65,000 to 110,000. Over time the program can be increased to admit as many as 180,000 workers/year.  There go your skilled jobs, perhaps even yours, and especially  if you are a college student planning on a STEM job.  It seems to me that if there were fewer unemployed Americans that these wages, which have been stagnant for about four years would go up and more American students would get the education needed for these jobs.

S.744  creates new agriculture guest worker program that admits up to 112,000 farm workers annually. The program expanded from seasonal to year-round and eliminates the current H-2A program which is currently unlimited for seasonal labor. H-2A workers went home at the end of the season, but this will not be a requirement for the new Ag jobs visas. There are hundreds of thousands of young men and women that would love to work in agriculture, but they can’t because wages are so low that they can’t make a living for their American family.  This is bad legislation for rural areas.  The elite that are pushing S.744 believe that farm, dairy, and ranching type of work, is work that Americans are too lazy or unwilling to do.  They assume that this type of work is below the dignity of the American workers, a false assumption.  

Once the immigrants receive amnesty or enter on a legal work visa, many will not be satisfied and will not want to live as second class “citizens.” Certainly  their children will not be satisfied, which will require that the flood of foreign labor, both legal and illegal continue, until wages in the United States have declined to that of 2nd and 3rd world countries.  The questions are; is this legislation for the benefit of foreign workers or American workers?  Is the United States required to provide a better life for foreigners or for Americans?  Is it the new Foreign Aid Program? 

Additional links:  1) FAIR Summary     2) S.744 Summary (the legislation is over 800 pages    3)  In order to suppress wages: Now is not the the to increase the number of H-1B Visas and Stem Green Cards                       4). H-1B the "ourtsourcing visa"    5)  Greenspan claims that the United States needs a lot more immigrants that even illegal immigration is beneficial    6) The laws of supply and demand tells us that flooding markets reduces prices, the same applies to wages when the labor market is flooded by foreign labor.

                    More UFIRE Notes

The Utah Commission on Immigration and Migration Met several times during the year, but appeared to be a dog and pony show in an attempt to show that they were studying the issue.  However, little was learned.

UFIRE has compared the over 700 employers (has dropped by about 300 since first established) on the Utah Employer Verification Registry and found that about 60% of the employers are not on the USCIS Utah Employer E-Verify List.  The USCIS List only contains the employers with 5 or more employees, However, UFIRE also checked the list of about 800 employers with 1-4 employees. UFIRE does not see the value of this list for any reason, other than deception.

UFIRE opposes the Utah Driver's Privilege Card and is trying to get rid of it!

The Utah Drivers Privilege Card was first created in 2005.  The 2009 Utah Legislature changed the Utah Driver's Privilege Card (DPC).  Starting Jan. 1, 2010 all applicants for a Utah Driver License including renewals have to prove, with a birth certificate or a US passport that they are citizens. The non-citizens residing in the US legally may obtain a regular Utah drivers license, but it expires with the visa.  

Those residing in the United States illegally may use an ITIN or other documents in order to obtain a DPC.  The DPC will allow them to drive to work, church, shopping,etc.  The DPC requires the fingerprint of the applicant which is then checked for criminal activity.  The card is good for one year. More than 55,000 DPCs held by illegal aliens are presently valid.  For more detail please read this    Examiner Article.

Guide for the Mexican Migrant 

"The Mexican Government printed and distributed millions of copies of a comic book instructing people in Spanish how to enter the U.S. illegally and, if caught, how to claim the rights of American citizens! On this page are exact reproductions of three pages from this guide book. Illegal entry over our southern border is the same route used by the vicious Salvadoran gangs and by OTMs (Other Than Mexicans) who enter to commit crimes against Americans. Millions of illegal aliens are not only a threat to our safety, but are a burden to U.S. taxpayers who must pay for their emergency health care, their diseases, schooling for their children, and incarceration for the crimes they commit."  (From Eagle Forum)

The guide itself is available in the files section,
