The US Chamber of Commerce wants laborers, no concern for you, as they tell Trump to extend ‘temporary’ refugee program

Temporary Protected Status is yet one more LEGAL way to get and keep the US immigrant population high.  It is not truly a refugee program, but was designed to give TEMPORARY protection to foreign nationals who happened to be in the US when some big event happened back home—like a hurricane, earthquake or civil war.

The operative word is temporary, but that is the last thing it is!

Chamber Veep Neil Bradley.  See his resume here. See where he worked and see why the Republicans do not control immigration. The Republican leadership in the swamp is driven by business interests represented by the US Chamber of Commerce—to heck with American workers, to heck with your town and your safety.  https://www.uschamber.com/neil-bradley

The program for each country must be renewed every 18 months, so the Trump Admin is facing some upcoming deadlines.

Pressure is mounting and the US Chamber of Commerce (they are not your friends!) are out in front leading the lobbying efforts for Haiti, Honduras,  and El Salvador.

Before I give you the news.  This is what you need to know!

From USCIS:

TEMPORARY protection was given to Haitians on July 23, 2011

TEMPORARY protection was given to Hondurans on January 5, 1991

TEMPORARY protection was given to Salvadorans on March 9, 2001

And, in each case the temporary protection was extended every 18 months.

Those migrants who knew this was temporary were given false hope for decades in the case of Honduras and nearly two decades for El Salvador.  The false hope was that amnesty would be passed in Congress with the help of their buddies at the US Chamber of Commerce.

Dear local Republicans….

The Chambers’ interest here is in MONEY (for big business pals and global corporations). They are not even that interested in your local small businesses where you live. They are not concerned with the loss of your quality of life or the cultural conflicts created by excessive immigration.  This is definitely not about humanitarianism either, so don’t be fooled.

Here is the US Chamber of Commerce (which also drives the Congressional Republican leadership in case you wonder why nothing happens with reform of refugee resettlement) pressing the Trump Administration in a letter on Friday published at America’s Voice (not your friend either!):

Today, in a letter to Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President and Chief Policy Neil L. Bradley called on the Trump Administration to extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designations for El Salvador, Honduras, and Haiti, citing strong economic concerns.

The Trump Administration must decide whether to extend the TPS designations by the following dates:

11/6/17 Decision deadline for 59,550 Hondurans and Nicaraguans: 10 DAYS
11/23/17 Decision deadline for 50,000 Haitians: 27 DAYS
01/08/18 Decision deadline for 195,000 Salvadorans: 73 DAYS

Go here for the full letter (SOS!).  See if some of those jobs are jobs Americans will do!

And, by the way, not mentioned is that many of these workers send millions of dollars in the form of remittances back to their HOME countries—millions LOST to the US economy—but never mentioned in any of the supposed economic studies about how we need this (cheap and compliant) immigrant/refugee labor.

  1. If Americans paid attention to acts and agreements and bills signed, this would have come as no surprise: http://tvoinews.net/f-international/world-gone-mad-racing-ruin/ we’ve passed so many agreements that boil down to exportation of our technology and jobs- and importing foreign labor. Here’s some explanation of it http://tvoinews.net/f-international/world-gone-mad-racing-ruin/

    There’s a paper out with a triangle- ALL employment in USA will be “IT, global supply chain and innovation” all labor, that is “work work” will be moved to ahem “developing nations”. Or, we can import those “developing peoples” here, we become a developing nation full of illiterate, savage persons the elite want to have as the labor. Remember the protests in Seattle for the WTO signing? Those protestors knew what they were going up against. Today’s protestors join up with whatever they see in Twitter.
    Cheers

  3. In my twenty plus years spent in immigration law enforcement I seldom heard of any TPS person leaving of their own accord. I did run into a bunch while looking for illegal aliens, and many were overstaying the expiration of their program. Some were criminals.

    The Chamber of Commerce was always looked upon as the enemy among immigration officers.

  4. My guess is that many of these “temporary” bums will be here just long enough to plop out a little anchor baby so we get stuck with them forever. We need to insist on a clause in this agreement that stipulates no citizenship for a leechlet born here under one of these programs. Better yet, we should insist that they are returned home to deal with their own problems.

  5. The WTO calls for the free movement of goods, capital and labor. Labor is a commodity. They are calling them refugees but if you watch the recent hearing by the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Goodlatte, you’ll hear them talking about the commodity labor visa which includes meatpacking and processing. We know they are importing “refugees” for those jobs. You connect the dots and the conclusion is that our government is supporting and facilitating human trafficking of people who are virtual slaves.
