How does assistant Democrat Paul Ryan manage to keep a straight face while spewing such outlandish lies?
In a Tuesday morning interview with radio host Bill Bennett, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended his omnibus bill’s controversial expansion in the H-2B visa program, which would allow foreign workers to fill blue-collar American jobs, by arguing that if the provision were not included, American companies would be forced to shut their doors.
Meanwhile, the workforce participation rate is at the lowest level since the dismal days of Jimmy Carter.
As Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has highlighted, the Economic Policy Institute has documented how, “wages were stagnant or declining for workers in all of the top 15 H-2B occupations between 2004 and 2014.”
Unemployment rates have been rising for all but one of the top 15 top H-2B visa occupations.
You would think the bleeding heart set would object…
As immigration attorney Ian Smith has explained, Ryan’s resurrection and expansion of the controversial provision in Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s Gang of Eight bill to increase guest-worker programs will disproportionately “hurt America’s most vulnerable workers” such as black workers, single women, the elderly, and first-generation immigrants.
But both wings of the liberal establishment are about enriching and further empowering the ruling class — which conspicuously includes the crony capitalists catered to at the nation’s expense by Ryan and Rubio.
Ryan’s push to expand immigration comes on top of the nation’s existing federal policy of autopilot visa dispensations. Under current policy, every day the U.S. brings in enough new immigrants to fill an overcrowded, metropolitan high school. Every week, the United States brings in enough new immigrants to fill the Staples Center, where the Los Angeles Lakers play. Every year, we add an immigrant population the size of Dallas. And every three years, the U.S. adds another entire city of Los Angeles, made up of foreign-born immigrants.
This isn’t immigration, not with these numbers. It is hostile invasion, facilitated by a government of quislings personified by Obama and his accomplice Ryan.
Wisconsin, you elected this bedbug. It is your duty to primary him — and it is the national duty to primary any Republican who votes along with him on his most outrageous betrayals, like the omnibus spending bill.
