H-2B Visas Are Killing Jobs for Americans

Like the better-known visas issued to college-educated technical workers, H-2B visas for temporary blue-collar jobs are supposed to be issued only if and when “unemployed workers capable of performing the relevant service or labor cannot be found” anywhere in the United States. That limitation is easily circumvented by employers, whose task is made easier by another provision on page 888 of the Omnibus: “In the determination of prevailing wage for the purposes of the H-2B program, the Secretary shall accept private wage surveys” in lieu of official ones.

Immigration Steals American Jobs

When I heard that the Omnibus spending bill that President Obama signed a week before Christmas includes a provision allowing more foreign guest workers, my first reaction was disbelief. We were repeatedly told by Republican leaders that the spending bill contained only what was absolutely necessary to pay our troops, bondholders, and Social Security recipients, and we couldn’t risk shutting down the government with provisions to defund Planned Parenthood or prohibit Obama’s executive actions.

Marco Rubio's top achievements

Breitbart reports:
Marco Rubio’s 7 Top Achievements in U.S. Senate

Following Rick Santorum’s inability to name a single achievement of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the media sought to answer the question for themselves. Yet many reporters appear to have come up empty handed.

As The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza writes, a “major part of the problem is that Rubio doesn’t have all that many accomplishments in the Senate.”
Read his dubious achievements, and also how he betrayed tea party conservatives.

Republicans got bad advice on immigration

After Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election, all the experts said that the Republicans must become pro-immigration in the future. Phyllis Schlafly has been saying for 3 years that this advice was wrong. Now even the NY Times admits that it was wrong:
Political pundits and Republican leaders like to say that nobody could have foreseen the extraordinary rise of Donald J. Trump’s presidential candidacy.

But there were early signs that the electorate was ready for an insurgency like the one Mr. Trump has inspired this election. ...

Mr. Fehrnstrom, Mr. Brown’s former consultant, called the Republican Party leaders’ redirection on immigration after the 2012 election a huge miscalculation.

“They told their candidates to support a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants as a way to increase outreach to Hispanics,” said Mr. Fehrnstrom, who also advised Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential race.

“And candidates who followed that advice are struggling. Donald Trump went in the opposite direction and he has total command of the 2016 field.”
