OUTRAGE OF THE DAY #2: THE NO-MATCH RULE

Rate this Entry

Congress has failed to deal with immigration once again and as American employers have grown totally dependent on the labor of those unlawfully present. There are millions more jobs than American citizens and permanent residents, yet Congress has failed to provide legal options for employers to be able to bring in foreign workers properly. Instead, in a struggle to survive, employers have become lawbreakers. And rather than confronting the fact that the laws need to be changed, the government announced today that they're only going to enforce the existing rules with more vigor.



So we hear announcements today of more border security and more worksite raids as well as the already infamous new no-match rule described in detail by me earlier in the day.



We already have an economy teetering on the edge and our Congress and President have today announced a policy that could very well push us over that cliff. Ironically, the most anti-immigration members of Congress are often the ones who claim to be the most pro-business. And it's unions like SEIU that are out front, arm in arm with the business community, expressing outrage. When you have the unions and the business groups on the same side, you know it's time to pay attention.

    Greg, I hate to take the side of the president on this one, but maybe this is required to get some kind of comprehensive solution. I totally disagree with this, however, it seems like that this has to be done so the voices of the businesses and unions can be louder then the anti-immigrant minority next time CIR comes around, maybe next year, what do you think?

    I agree with TX I think the business community did not lend enough support to CIR and now they will be stuck with paying the bill. Its time for them to join the fight and flex their muscle in Washington, DC. If business is dependent on the workers well politicians are dependent on Business contributions and jobs in their district. Its time for them to realize that not only the immigrants are paying the consequences to fail to act on CIR now they will share the pain as well.

    Well, I guess maybe Microsoft and Oracle didn't flex the muscle enough. If Bill Gates goes and testifies in front of a congressional committee, and this is not enough to pass something small like SKIL bill (no amnesty involved here!), and this is not enough, then I don't know what else can help. Do you really think those farmers and small businesses have more leverage? Sorry, but I don't think anything's gonna happen...

    Yeah but how about the Hospitality Industry, Manufacturing sector, Agricultural corporations and construction Industry. CIR was not only to help the undocumented workers but to really reform the broken system and make better the future flow of all immigrants. I don't think anything is going to happen until after the next elections either. Which makes the timing of this rule weird because seems like its putting a lot of pressure on Business.
