Lewis: Stop filling our jobs with foreign workers

We are glad Resident Obama pointed out that America needs to create 150,000 new jobs each month simply to employ those Americans entering the workforce. With this in mind why is the Congress allowing businesses to import 125,000 new foreign workers each month?

Obama is right, the United States needs to create 150,000 jobs each month to keep pace with out own skyrocketing population. According to Obama we are only creating 50,000 jobs each month. This means that we are creating 100,000 too few jobs each month. That means we are looking at a jobs deficit of 1.2 million over the next year (if the economy keeps improving).

Why then do these United States continue to issue 125,000 foreign worker permits each month and 35,000 green cards to foreign workers? This adds up to 160,000 foreign workers per month. Why are we allowing 160,000 foreign workers each month to compete against unemployed Americans when we are facing a monthly jobs deficit of 100,000?

There is no sane or plausible reason for this to continue. The United States does not need more foreign workers. Americans do not need more foreign workers. Americans need jobs — 150,000 per month to be precise. How can we continue to let 160,000 new foreign workers compete against these unemployed Americans? Please act to suspend foreign worker importation until the United States is able to create enough jobs for its own.

Phone me if you would like to talk about this,

P.S. Get the government out of our lives so our businesses can grow and hire Americans again!
