New House GOP Group Promoting Pro-Business Immigration Policies

Rate this Entry

The GOP is finally remembering that it's brand is the pro-business, pro-growth party and at least one group in the House of Representatives is rejecting the protectionist, xenophobic rhetoric of some in the party. From the American Council on International Personnel:


The American Council on International Personnel (ACIP) today applauded the House Republican Technology Working Group for including among its job creation priorities a commitment to review current education policies and immigration laws to ensure that America has access to the best talent, from America and around the world.


In its list of priorities, "A Focus on Technology Policies that Foster Job Creation," released today, the Working Group states:

 

Ensure American Access to the Best Workers: We will examine current education programs to make sure they are operating efficiently.  We will also examine current visa and immigration laws to make sure we attract and retain the best and brightest minds from around the world.

 

The commitment is consistent with several recent calls for reform made by both Democratic and Republican leaders, and is in line with ACIP's long-held position that improving U.S. STEM education and reforming highly educated employment-based immigration policies to allow access to the world's best and brightest are both needed for building America's 21st century workforce.

 

"We applaud the House Republican Technology Working Group for making a commitment today to review education and visa policies to ensure a strong American workforce," said ACIP Executive Director Lynn Shotwell.  "We urge Congress and the Administration to join together and enact bipartisan reform of the high-skilled employment-based immigration system this year."

    Too many rednecks in the House GOP...unfortunately we are getting a few here in Singapore as well especially since the May 7 elections...immigration these days is about greed...ask any Singaporean here..he or she will tell you that they should have the right to work abroad and foreigners should not have the right to work here..because the country is overcrowded...ask any Aussies here on fat salaries they will tell you the same thing in reverse...as far as Americans are concerned...it is a mixed bag...some here want the right to work here but dont want Singaporeans working in America...others say it is fine! It all comes down to self-preservation and greed.

    Well is yet to be seen if this minority within the retardican party can convince the large anti-immigrant majority of that party that doing this makes sense for the country.

    Now this is lip service from the GOP. Nothing will happen, and soon there will be a double dip recession - and blame all the immigrants you can!
