FREE VISAS: Rand Paul Introduces Bill to Flood U.S. with ‘Legal’ Foreign Labor

Paul’s libertarian streak is causing him to side with the globalists on this key issue.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced legislation on Wednesday that will nearly double the annual employment-based immigration visas that are permissible under the law, bringing in even more foreign labor to squeeze U.S. workers out of jobs.

The Backlog Elimination, Legal Immigration, and Employment Visa Enhancement (BELIEVE) Act, proposed by Paul at the behest of the Koch-funded CATO Institute, would attempt to solve the problem of illegal immigration by legalizing corporate hiring practices of foreigners to devastate U.S. workers.

“A fourfold increase in employment-based permanent immigration would bring the United States more in line with the Canadian system,” said CATO Institute immigration policy analyst David Bier about Paul’s legislation.

Paul’s proposed legislation would increase the annual number of employment-based immigration visas from 140,000 to 270,000, ban all per-nation caps on employment-based immigration green cards, allow spouses and teenaged kids of immigrants with work visas to be exempt from the employment-based visa numbers, give employers the ability to more easily hire immigrants for jobs on the “Shortage Occupation” list of the U.S. Department of Labor, and allow the children of foreigners with temporary worker permits to stay in the U.S. after turning 21.

Paul’s legislation is an even more ambitiously globalist proposal than H.R. 1044, another Koch-backed bill that sailed through the House by an overwhelming 365-65 margin on Wednesday. That legislation will afford citizens of India a whopping 90 percent of the professional employment green cards granted by the U.S. moving forward.

The Kentucky Republican had previously blocked the Senate’s version of H.R. 1044, proposed by Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Kamala Harris (R-CA). Paul was seen as a hero for standing in the way of a bill that is reviled by pro-Trump conservatives and nationalists, but he apparently opposed it because he wanted the terms to be even more hospitable toward foreign labor.

Lee is another libertarian-leaning Republican who, like Paul, believes that protecting the opportunity for U.S.-born workers is “unfair” and “un-American.”

“In some cases, they can be stuck in a backlog of green card petitions for decades,” Lee said of foreign laborers.

“This is one of the many features of Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley-era immigration code that is outdated and needs to be cast into the dustbin of history,” Lee added.

“This undermines our ability to bring the best and brightest individuals to our country,” he said. “It’s to our harm and it’s to our own shame.”

With so many Republican lawmakers – even the individuals with the most conservative voting records – in the back pocket of the Chamber of Koch, it is likely a foregone conclusion that H.R. 1044, or Paul’s even more lax immigration bill, will be approved by the Senate.

Published

Before an audience in Des Moines, Iowa on October 14, 2020, President Donald Trump highlighted his support for curbing illegal immigration.

In this speech, Trump made it a point to link illegal immigration with increased spending on healthcare at the federal and state level.

“[Joe] Biden’s agenda would be a catastrophe for Iowa seniors,” Trump stated in his speech.

Trump added:

Biden is pledging mass amnesty and federal health care for illegal aliens, decimating Medicare and destroying your Social Security.

We all have a heart. I said all the time, I’d love to take care of everybody all over the world. The problem is our country can’t afford it.

If you started saying, ‘We’re going to give free education, we’re going to give you Medicare, we’re going to give you health care, we’re going to give you everything,’ our country will be flooded with millions and millions of people that are going to come from all over the world. They will decimate our country,. You can’t do it.

Biden cares more about illegal aliens than he does your senior citizens. It’s true.

In these trying times, Trump has to use his national populist appeal in order to win votes, especially among older voters. Trump has lost his edge with that demographic cohort according to an Axios report that was released in October 6:

Former Vice President Joe Biden has gained a more than 20 point lead over President Trump among voters ages 65 and older, two separate polls — one from CNN and one from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal — found.

Illegal aliens are known to be major beneficiaries of welfare largesse. According to a 2016 study by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, mass migration runs state and local governments about $60 billion annually. Additionally, if the current crop of uninsured illegal aliens is allowed to enroll in the Obamacare program, the federal government could potentially be spending $10 billion annually, an estimate that the Center for Immigration Studies put forward back in 2019.

Bringing in more migrants would have healthcare and infrastructure costs balloon to rates that could strain America’s already delicate social services programs.

Neil Munro of Breitbart compared and contrasted Biden and Trump’s immigration platforms to detail the contrasts between the two canddiates respect visions for migration policy:

Trump’s 2020 plan offers broadly popular restrictions on immigration and visa workers.

But Biden’s 2020 plan promises to let companies import more college-trained visa workers, to let mayors import visa workers, to accelerate the multi-million inflow of chain-migration migrants, to end migration enforcement against illegal aliens unless they commit a felony, and to dramatically accelerate the inflow of poor refugees to at least 125,000 per year.

In short, Donald Trump is the America First candidate who stands up for American workers and socio-economic cohesion. In contrast, Biden is the globalist candidate that wants to break down American institutions for the benefit of Big Business and other interests who view the nation state as an antiquated construct.

In 2020, the choice is clear for anyone who believes in institutional stability and prosperity for the American people and their posterity.
