We’ve all heard complaints about how “undocumented workers” take US jobs and how technology companies are using H1B visas to depress wages and displace US citizens. Technology companies and IT departments are currently demanding an increase in H1B visa quotas even though there are US STEM graduates who are not working in their fields. Did you ever wonder why governments of countries like India and Mexico want their citizens to come to the US so badly that they’ll even help their people to get here (other than to get rid of them)? Do you wonder why our government goes along with it or why the socialist UN is so supportive of immigration into our nation? It’s not just about “diversity”, it’s about dollars.
By sending billions of US dollars home these immigrants are providing their homelands with US foreign aid.
From our government’s viewpoint it is under-the-table foreign aid. Those are billions of dollars flowing overseas that our elected officials in Congress don’t have to explain to the taxpayers. Unfortunately those are also billions of dollars being drained from our economy that are not contributing to US growth. Even the UN is happy because those billions of dollars represent wealth redistribution to underdeveloped nations, which is a stated objective of UN Agenda 21.
We can’t stop people from sending money overseas but we can manage immigration policies to put the US and it’s citizens first. Start by denying the current demand for more H1B visas. Then inversely index H1B visa quotas to STEM unemployment, i.e., as the number of unemployed STEM workers goes up the quota for foreign competitors goes down. Secure the borders and stop all illegal immigration. To discourage other nations from actively pursuing this under-the-table foreign aid Congress might even consider that money as part of the total foreign aid package, thus reducing the taxpayer funded portion. The US is not the world’s sugar daddy.
