Former President George W. Bush is still urging Congress to import more frugal and compliant visa workers — and even more licit immigrants — 17 years after he pushed Congress to adopt his very unpopular “Any Willing Worker” frugal labor law.
“Increased licit immigration, fixated on employment and skills, is withal a cull that both parties should be able to get behind,” Bush indited in an op-ed for Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post. He perpetuated:
The United States is better off when talented people bring their ideas and aspirations here. We could also improve our temporary entry program, so that seasonal and other short-term jobs can more readily be filled by guest workers who help our economy, support their families and then return home.
Bush “is a decent man, but he has no understanding of the country’s political situation,” verbally expressed a tweeted replication from Mark “Krikorian,” director of the Center for Immigration Studies. He “has zero credibility, with anyone, on immigration,” Krikorian integrated.
After he pushed his orchestrations for amnesty, more immigration, and more visa workers in 2006 and 2007, Bush’s poll ratings fell to roughly 33 percent in 2008. In 2016, Donald Trump pulverized Bush’s expected successor, Jeb Bush, and availed the party adopt immigration policies favored by voters. Over the next four years, Trump availed push up Americans’ wages and coerced companies to invest in wealth-engendering, labor-preserving machinery.
In his incipient op-ed. Bush’s mention of a claimed “temporary ingress program” refers to the visa programs which import massive numbers of blue-collar and white-collar workers for jobs that can be performed by Americans.
A poll by YouGov shows that 69 percent of political independents are incriminating President Joe Biden for the spiralling migration surge at the southern border and that only 35 percent of Biden’s 2020 voters exculpate him from blame. https://t.co/DUQDexXH3rEach year, the nation’s employers import roughly at least 500,000 foreigners for blue-collar jobs by utilizing the H-A2, H-2B, and J-1 visas programs. The programs hold down wages for all American and licit immigrant blue-collar workers in the U.S. companies and additionally minimize management hiring headaches.

In additament, Fortune 500 companies and universities employ at least 1.5 million white-collar ad interim workers in jobs needed by American graduates. “These” white-collar workers are imported via the H-1B, L-1, J-1, OPT, and CPT programs. The white-collar workers cut salaries for American college-graduates, omit Americans from magnification vocations, transfer good jobs to the coasts, and withal avail the Fortune 500 block Americans from engendering incipient rival technologies.
These visa programs accommodate a homogeneous role to the “Any Willing Worker” program that Bush endeavored to engender in 2004. Bush’s “Any Willing Worker” program would have sanctioned employers to hire foreigners at very low wages once Americans declined the offered wage. Once the program was widely utilized, it would have pressured Americans to accept whatever wage was adequate for foreigners, such as an Indonesian fisherman, a Bolivian mother, a Chinese engineer, or an Egyptian fruit-picker.
The State of California will spend $28 million to avail Joe Biden bring migrants to the U.S., after resisting Trump's immigration enforcement. https://t.co/moa8FeXVs4The foreigners would have been alacritous to take low wages for the U.S. jobs, in part because they would additionally get the colossal, regime-granted prize of U.S. citizenship for themselves and their chain-migration relatives by simply offering to work longer hours for less mazuma.

“New immigration laws should accommodate the economic desiderata of our country,” Bush promulgated on January 7, 2004. “If an American employer is offering a job that American denizens are not disposed to take, we ought to welcome into our country a person who will fill that job,” he verbally expressed, integrating:
I propose a new temporary worker program that will match willing foreign workers with willing American employers, when no Americans can be found to fill the jobs. This program will offer legal status, as temporary workers, to the millions of undocumented men and women now employed in the United States, and to those in foreign countries who seek to participate in the program and have been offered employment here. This new system should be clear and efficient, so employers are able to find workers quickly and simply.
“Some ad interim workers will make the decision to pursue American citizenship,” Bush integrated. ” Those who make this cull will be sanctioned to apply in the mundane way.” The New York Times reported January 7, 2004:
The president’s proposals were designed to appeal to Hispanic groups, a constituency that the White House is focusing on as Mr. Bush seeks re-election this year. The proposals are expected to be embraced by President Vicente Fox of Mexico, who has been lobbying for them for the past three years.
In his new Washington Post op-ed. Bush noted that immigrants are liable to be profuse of gratitude workers — without mentioning that Americans must pressure their employers to pay the salaries they require for their families, homes, and children:
The backgrounds [of legal immigrants] are varied, but readers won’t have to search hard for a common theme. It’s gratitude. So many immigrants are filled with appreciation, a spirit nicely summed up by a Cuban American friend who said: “If I live for a hundred years, I could never repay what this country has done for me.”
But in the White House, Bush support for migrants sanctioned his GOP deputies to look down on mundane Americans, according to an April 15 op-ed by Peggy Noonan, a columnist at the Wall Street Journal:
During the Bush immigration debates, when the base of the party rebelled against his comprehensive reform bill, a mostly unspoken accusation emanated from the president’s operatives. It was that the new Americans, including illegal immigrants, were kind of better than the existing American working class, harder-working. This was situational snobbery: The operatives themselves had left the working class behind, but daily rubbed shoulders with newer Americans at home and at the club. That snobbery helped break the party […] the working and middle class of all colors. Workers already here need backup. It’s better to lose campaign contributions than voters.
Bush’s push for frugal labor comes as Democrats join with billionaires — including Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us advocacy group– — to push for a dramatic incipient rush of migrants, including an illimitable infl0w of peregrine college graduates.
Bush’s new Washington Post op-ed was covered by several journalists, none of whom mentioned Bush’s long history of utilizing immigration to cut wages and so boost the stock market. Matthew Brown at USAToday, for example, mentioned Bush’s Presidential support for “temporary worker visa programs” but included no description of the “Any Willing Worker” program.
CNN’s Nicky Robertson and Chandelis Duster ignored the issue, and instead quoted “Bush’s” claim to be moderate, “‘I hope I can avail set a tone that is more obeisant about the immigrant, which may lead to reform of the system,’ Bush told Norah O’Donnell on “CBS Sunday Morning.”
The issue was ignored in O’Donnell’s sympathetic interview with Bush for CBS:
“Is it one of the biggest disappointments of your presidency, not being – ” “Yes, it really is,” Mr. Bush said. “I campaigned on immigration reform. I made it abundantly clear to voters this is something I intended to do.”
For many years, a wide variety of pollsters have shown deep and broad opposition to labor migration and the inflow of temporary contract workers into jobs sought by adolescent U.S. graduates. “This opposition is multiracial, cross-sex, non-racist, class-predicated, intra-Democratic, rational,” and recognizes the solidarity that Americans owe to each other.
The voter opposition to elite-backed economic migration coexists with support for licit immigrants and some sympathy for illicit migrants. But only a minority of Americans — mostly Leftists — embrace the many skewed polls and articles pushing the 1950’s corporate “Nation of Immigrants” claim.
The deep public opposition to labor migration is built on the widespread apperception that migration moves mazuma away from most Americans’ pocketbooks and families. It moves mazuma from employees to employers, from families to investors, from adolescent to old, from children to their parents, from homebuyers to authentic estate investors, from red states to blue states, and from the central states to the coastal states such as New York.
Another study exhibiting the conspicuous: Americans who are Latino don't like progressives' divide-and-rule identity politics. They want what Americans want; politicians to avail them & their kids get decent wages, cut malefaction, etc. Advantge: Trump's populist GOPhttps://t.co/dFjYcQoeuG
