Leave it up to RINO lawmakers to find a way to keep illegal aliens in America.
RINO leaders of the GOP added a massive infusion of low-skilled foreign workers to their immigration bill Tuesday, hoping to win over reluctant Republicans with business-friendly provisions.
The number of low-skilled seasonal workers — those who pick crabs, work amusement parks or mow lawns — will be allowed to triple under the new plan.
The proposal also includes a new guest-worker program for agriculture workers, hoping to appease farmers who fear they’ll lose their current, heavily illegal, workforce under the other provisions of the GOP’s compromise immigration bill.
A vote is expected Wednesday, and RINO traitors were making a hard sell to members, reports the Washington Times..
“I want to lean into that vote and do as well as we possibly can on that vote,” King of the RINOs Paul Ryan said.
But lawmakers are also beginning to think about what happens if the bill fails — an outcome analysts said is still likely.
A more enforcement-heavy bill failed last week on a 231-193 vote. Spineless moderate Republicans who thought the bill was too harsh, and conservatives who thought it too generous to illegal aliens, joined all Democrats in opposition.
The House had been poised to vote on the other “compromise” bill, written by moderates and conservatives, last week, but delayed the vote after it was clear the bill would fail.
In the days since, both sides have tried to add sweeteners.
The biggest one is requiring use of E-Verify, an electronic system for businesses to check that their new hires are in the country legally and eligible to work. Supporters say that will cut down on the jobs magnet that draws illegal aliens to the U.S.
But farms, whose workforce is heavily illegal, feared losing half of their workers. They demanded a guest-worker program so they can keep a supply of legal foreign agriculture workers.
The bill envisions up to 460,000 visas under that guest-worker program — though the numbers could be boosted if demand is high.
The seasonal unskilled visas, known as the H-2B visa program, were also added at the last minute.
The H-2B program has been controversial for years, with a number of lawmakers saying their tourism and seafood industries need the foreign workers.
Congress set the annual cap at 66,000 H-2B workers, divided in half between winter and summer seasons.
The RINO proposal would potentially allow a tripling of the H-2B cap by allowing anyone who came in either of the last two years not to be counted against this year’s cap.
As if illegal aliens aren’t costing American enough?
Did you know that thanks to Democrat policies, and America being over-run by illegal aliens, that illegals sponge off the American taxpayer to the tune of $18 BILLION a year in free health care?
Gee, that’s enough to build a wall covering the entire southern border.
Current federal policy is to prohibit federal tax funding of health care to illegal aliens through either Medicaid or Obamacare, but there’s a catch. Actually lots of them.
Rough estimates suggest that the nation’s 3.9 million uninsured illegal aliens who are unauthorized likely receive about $4.6 billion in health services paid for by federal taxes, $2.8 billion in health services financed by state and local taxpayers, another $3.0 bankrolled through “cost-shifting” i.e., higher payments by insured patients to cover hospital uncompensated care losses, and roughly $1.5 billion in physician charity care.
So we really have to ask ourselves one question. How much abuse will the American citizens tolerate before we finally vote out globalist traitors known as RINOs?
