No, not hitting a wall – finding out you’ve been violating Title 8 for decades and pissed you can’t get your illegal cheap labor any longer.
Too bad for you.
You might have to actually work and provide some value for a change instead.
AILA and its members are all just a bunch of parasites on the US economy. They make their living off processing visas for illegal foreign workers. Now their biz is down the tubes.
Should have banked more over the past 20 years.
“While national news about immigration focuses on raids to deport people who are in the United States illegally, Virginia immigration attorneys warn that the biggest immigration problems businesses face are visa application delays and denials.
“What we see are obstacles to legal immigration [that are] inconsistent and arbitrary,” says Jennifer A. Minear, a director in Richmond-based law firm McCandlish Holton’s immigration practice group”.
Except that under Title 8, Section 1182 Inadmissible Aliens, all foreign workers are inadmissible if their working here “adversely affects the wages or working conditions of Americans similarly employed”.
According to a recent Zero Hedge article, close to 100 million Americans are now unemployed. That’s close to 1/2 the entire working age American population. 50% unemployment.
Did AILA lawyers really think they could get away with mass immigration violations forever?
Here, allow us to spell it out for you from Section 1182 in case you missed it:
“(5) Labor certification and qualifications for certain immigrants
(A) Labor certification
(i) In general
Any alien who seeks to enter the United States for the purpose of performing skilled or unskilled labor is inadmissible, unless the Secretary of Labor has determined and certified to the Secretary of State and the Attorney General that—
(I) there are not sufficient workers who are able, willing, qualified (or equally qualified in the case of an alien described in clause (ii)) and available at the time of application for a visa and admission to the United States and at the place where the alien is to perform such skilled or unskilled labor,
Driving 100 million Americans into tents in the streets and driving remaining workers’ wages down is definitely “adversely affecting the wages and working conditions of workers similarly employed”.
In other words: you’re all breaking the law.
AILA lawyers need to learn what the law says: namely that the default is that all foreign workers are illegal and inadmissible except in rare cases. And especially not at a time like this when 100 milion working-age Americans are unemployed.
You’re all breaking the law Virginia Business + AILA.
Stop crying – be thankful you haven’t been arrested yet for criminal wage-fixing, which is what you are all engaging in.
