“The American Dream Employment Act would expand Congress’ talent pool, give Dreamers a seat at the table, and strengthen policymaking for all Americans,” stated Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto.
“I’ve been proud to have several Dreamers work in my office as volunteer interns and have seen firsthand how the people of Illinois would benefit if Dreamers could serve as paid employees in my office,” Illinois Democrat Senator Dick Durbin chimed in.
Breitbart News reports, “The jobs and status giveaway to DACA illegal immigrants is linked to Harris’s high-profile run for the presidency.”
“Kamala Harris is going all in on immigration reform,” reported a pro-Harris Politico article, which according to Breitbart, “also highlighted the claim by open-borders advocates that federal immigration law is ‘a mean-spirited ban on Dreamers.'”
The article read, “It’s the latest move by the California Democrat to seize on an issue that her rival Beto O’Rourke has made his calling card — and to advocate for a Democratic constituency that’s often reduced to a congressional bargaining chip.”
Harris is also pushing legislation that would dramatically expand the legal and financial incentives for hundreds of thousands of Indian low-wage college graduates to take U.S.-based jobs from U.S. college graduates. Harris’s mother is from India.
The DACA population was created in 2012 when former President Barack Obama told his deputies to stop enforcing immigration laws against younger illegal aliens. Obama also directed them to hand out work permits to the illegal aliens despite the huge job loses caused by the 2008 crash to blue-collar Americans, and especially on Africa Americans youths.
Roughly 800,000 “DACA” illegal immigrants got the work permits — despite a law saying only Congress can provide work permits.
The resulting increase in the labor supply cut wages for blue-collar Americans and created an incentive for many additional Central Americans to migrate into blue-collar workplaces, neighborhoods, and K-12 schools around the United States. Very few DACA illegal aliens hold white-collar jobs, such as professor, lawyer, journalist, or video editor — although a growing number of white-collar jobs are being lost to Indian visa workers.
Harris’ new bill, called the “American Dream Employment Act,” was brought to the House by Arizona Democratic Representative Ann Kirkpatrick. More than 50 Democratic lawmakers have backed the bill.
Harris’ legislation highlights Democratic efforts to bring illegal aliens into American society, even though Americans have been showing their support for immigration laws.
Breitbart explains, “Already, several states allow illegal immigrants to take licensed jobs, such as lawyers, in New York. The move also showcases the Democrats’ view that the United States is a ‘Nation of Immigrants’ — and not a nation created by and for Americans.”
Business groups looking to bring in illegal aliens in order to “cut wages and to spike revenues,” have backed Harris’ bill.
Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university.
But the federal government then imports approximately 1.1 million legal immigrants, refreshes a resident population of roughly 1.5 million white-collar guest workers and roughly 500,000 blue-collar visa workers, and also tolerates about eight million illegal workers.
This federal policy of flooding the market with cheap white-collar graduates and blue-collar foreign labor is intended to boost economic growth for investors. This policy shifts enormous wealth from young employees towards older investors, widens wealth gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts children’s schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines millions of marginalized Americans, including many who are now struggling with fentanyl addictions.
