House to Vote to Award More Green
Cards to Highly-Skilled Immigrants

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/21/2012 8:21:21 PM

The House will vote on a bill to give more green cards to highly-skilled immigrants who hold advanced degrees in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines from U.S. universities. The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Jobs Act, introduced by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), will be voted on in the House next Friday. The bill failed to pass the House in September with the two-thirds support it needed because it was voted on under suspension of the rules. The bill that will be considered next Friday will include a new provision

Comments:
So, for you unemployed college students who voted for 0bama and are burdened with a huge student loan, this is what you have to look forward to someday. A world where you don´t need to go there to vacation, because they are here doing your job, and quite possibly in another language.

Be sure to be nice to your parents in doing various chores if still living at home. It´s possible they may have voted for the other guy.

Green cards are a joke.
The borders are not secure, INS is a joke, DOJ is a joke, SecState is a joke.

Just sent the border patrol home and let the illegals come in. That´s what´s happening anyway.

Highly-skilled need green cards huh? Unskilled need nothing.

So are they going to institute Red cards to remove all the lazy, do-nothing low lifes that already live here (disrespecting the country) and the ones that cross the borders for all the freebies out of this country?

Amazing that competent, highly-skilled American citizens who hold advanced degrees in science, technology, math are not able to find work but we need to give more green cards to those who are not American citizens. Ridiculous, hire what is in the country first.

Obama let in 785,000 more foreign so called students in 2011... who knows where they are now.

Green cards should only go to those with skills so they can care for themselves. Not in this admin. Dems want slaves not employable skilled folks.

I´m w/ ya, #3 and #5. We can all thank Lamar! for introducing this idiotic legislation in the Senate.

What´s up w/ the government encouraging emigrants "from countries that have traditionally low rates of immigration to America"? This is simply further dilution of this nation´s founding values.

This provision to allow the spouses and children of aliens to come into the USA right away to await a "green card" sometime in the future is not good, as it will cause all sorts of immigration marriage fraud involving aliens already here with aliens who are looking to get into the USA but who cannot qualify in their own right.

Once the alien spouse gets a "green card" that alien can simply get divorced and stay here. Then the alien who sponsored "the spouse" can simply go aboard, get married to another alien spouse and bring that person into the USA. Once that type of all alien marriage fraud scheme gets up a head of steam, aliens already here will have a way to make a lot of quick money simply by going back to their home country, marrying someone there who wants to get into the USA, and then sponsoring them for entry to this country.

Not so, #13. Search for "H1B Sponsors and Visa Employer Database Records" and also for the Salon report by David Sirota "Obama’s high-tech labor lies" published in February this year. That last source talks about the woman referenced by #13 who asked Obama how he could support high-tech work visas for foreigners when her husband was out of work. That article reports, in part:

Indeed, a generation of jobless engineers exists not because, as tech CEOs insist, they don’t possess the skills to fill open jobs, but because those tech CEOs aren’t looking for domestic workers. On the contrary, they are looking for foreign workers who will simply accept lower wages and fewer workplace rights than Americans.

. . . In early 2009, Microsoft announced it would lay off 5,000 workers. After meeting that target by late 2009 it announced another round of 800 layoffs. Yet it continued to import H-1B workers. . . .

#14 hit the nail squarely on the head. We have PLENTY of people who´d LOVE to pursue careers in the STEM fields (and plenty who already hold degrees). The main issue is that these companies don´t want to pay these people what they´re worth. Their solution: hire more immigrants, pay them peanuts, subject them to conditions no one in his right mind would agree to, then hold their visa statuses over their head like the Sword of Damocles if they even think of complaining.

In other words, import high-tech slave labor and pocket the savings.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was killed earlier this month by a deadly mixture of heroin, cocaine, and several other drugs -- this according to the NYC medical examiner. The medical examiner just released the official cause of death -- listing "acute mixed drug intoxication" as the reason PSH passed away suddenly on February 2nd. According to the medical examiner, the drugs in the actor´s system at the time of his death were heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety) and amphetamines (uppers like Adderall). Mixing heroin and cocaine is often termed "speedballing." It´s the same mixture that killed Chris Farley, River Phoenix,

The Clinton Presidential Library released a batch of roughly 4,000 pages of previously-secret White House documents Friday, fueling questions about how history could affect the presidential ambitions of former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Several topics covered in Friday’s release relate to Mrs. Clinton, including records from the Health Care Task Force she headed and from her press office in the White House. The papers include internal musings by White House aides, including a warning that there was “great disquiet” on Capitol Hill about whether the Clintons understood the legislative process needed to enact the health

Tokyo - Mt. Gox, the troubled exchange for the virtual currency Bitcoin, filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday and said that it might have lost 750,000 of its customers’ coins, essentially all of them, in a hacking attack. The Tokyo-based exchange, which warned this month of a software flaw that may have allowed hackers to defraud it of Bitcoins, had halted all trading this week. Mark Karpeles, the company’s chief executive, wearing a suit instead of his usual T-shirt, bowed in contrition and apologized in Japanese at a press conference in Tokyo. “There were weaknesses in the system,” he said.

Washington - The National Archives made public on Friday afternoon a trove of secret documents detailing the inner workings of Bill Clinton’s White House, a disclosure of acute interest not just to the history of one presidency but to the prospects of another. Thirteen years after Mr. Clinton left office, the release of 3,000 to 4,000 pages of internal memos and other papers may shed light on decisions he made during a tumultuous time and, just as significantly if not more so, possibly the role his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, may have played in shaping them.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

President Obama´s proclaimed strategy to "bypass Congress" — most conspicuously his broad rewriting of the Affordable Care Act — has given unusual prominence to a fairly arcane legal doctrine: standing. Standing is what is preventing a potential blizzard of litigation against the president´s unilateral decrees, and ironically, it´s a doctrine liberal jurists have long decried. To challenge the government in federal court, it isn´t enough to simply believe that the government´s conduct is illegal or even unconstitutional. Federal courts can hear only specific disputes about the law as applied to particular people. To be heard in court, a person must have
