State of NC is giving incentives to companies who then hire foreign workers, instead of citizens

Immigration Reformers and Concerned Citizens,

The state of North Carolina, through their jobs incentive program, is giving our taxpayer dollars to companies who then hire foreign workers instead of citizens, through visa programs.

Yes it is true.

I reported on this over a year ago and HCL Technologies (aka sometimes HCL America) is one of the companies I mentioned, and it is in the news article below.

List of N.C. Congressional candidates who support real immigration enforcement

Immigration Reformers and Concerned Citizens,

Let’s take a look at candidates in North Carolina running for Congress in the June 7th primary election who are for real immigration enforcement and real reform.

First let me provide a preface to my comments. We are focusing our remarks on examining candidates as it relates to immigration only that could make a difference if elected and are in a competitive race.

See down below the listing of candidates…….

Since the Republicans have gerrymandered the Congressional districts (Democrats earlier did this for the last 100 years), some incumbent candidates have no real competitive threat. And through gerrymandering a few districts are loaded with so many Democrat voters, the Democrat is all but a sure winner.
I found no Democrats running for Congress from North Carolina who support real immigration reform and enforcement.

Secondly let me point out that NC LISTEN is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and cannot endorse candidates, but we can provide info based on their positions and detail which candidates believe in real immigration reform and enforcement, etc. We are commenting based on all available info we have on the immigration positions of the candidates.

Second Congressional District (revised) in North Carolina:

George Holding (R) is an incumbent running in a revised 2nd District and he believes in and has voted for immigration enforcement along with refugee controls. He has been in Congress and has a good track record. He has not pushed for more foreign workers but he hasn’t pressed for reducing foreign workers either.

Renee Ellmers (R) is an incumbent member of Congress. Renee Ellmers is for amnesty and legal status for illegal immigrants….said she would go as far as naturalization for illegals which is citizenship. She actually wrote this and said it and was quoted in the media. Donald Trump is endorsing Renee Ellmers but he has to unaware of her support for amnesty. Having met her, she once said to me that American workers are just lazy, as she was trying to justify illegal immigration. Ellmers says she is for Trump, after it was obvious he would win the primary…….she has also signed on to a couple of immigration enforcement bills as of late, which she knows and I know will not pass in the US House in order it appears to fool the public about her positions and improve her grade at NumbersUSA. She has also lied about the positions of George Holding, her major opponent.

Greg Brannon (R) is for border control but also for current levels of immigration…..way too high, probably due to his Libertarian tilt. Dr. Brannon is a fine person, but in political reality a vote for him will probably help Renee Ellmers as there will be no runoff this year.

Third Congressional District in North Carolina:

Walter Jones (R) (the incumbent) has been a long term supporter of real immigration reform and enforcement. He has the best grade of any Congressman from North Carolina relating to real immigration enforcement and worker protections for citizens. NumbersUSA and NC LISTEN give him an A+ grade.

Fifth Congressional District in North Carolina:

Virginia Foxx (R) (the incumbent) has been consistently average on real immigration reform and enforcement and has not fought for reducing unnecessary foreign worker programs. She is against an amnesty and has supported efforts to stop automatic citizenship for illegals.

Patti Curran (R) is also against an amnesty and wants our immigration laws enforced. Comments off of her website are as follows:
“Federal government makes it exceedingly difficult for immigrants to take the legal path to citizenship. We must simplify the immigration and visa process for those wanting to take the legal path to work in our nation or become American citizens.”
We do not need to simplify the immigration or work visa process, we need to reduce the numbers. From a pure immigration stance, there is little difference between Virginia and Patti.

Sixth Congressional District in North Carolina:

Mark Walker (R) (the incumbent) has good positions on being against amnesty and real enforcement of our immigration laws. He has a record of voting the right way most of the time.

Chris Hardin (R) has similar positions as Mark Walker. Chris has of course no voting record to compare.

Seventh Congressional District in North Carolina:

David Rouzer (R) (the incumbent) has been good on immigration enforcement and only average on reducing unnecessary work visas. He is the only Republican running in this District.

Eighth Congressional District in North Carolina:

Richard Hudson (R) (the incumbent) has been great on immigration enforcement and great on reducing unnecessary work visas and has voted accordingly. He gets a grade of A from NumbersUSA and NC LISTEN.

Tim D’Annunzio (R) has decent positions on immigration enforcement but chooses not to mention how he would deal with too many foreign worker visas, and we have no idea how he might vote.

Ninth Congressional District in North Carolina:

Robert Pittenger (R) (the incumbent) started out great on immigration enforcement and reform then became a little weak, but in the last 1.5 years has mostly voted for real immigration enforcement, refugee restrictions, and paying attention to how immigration negatively affects workers.

Mark Harris (R) in general comes up short when compared to Pittenger on his immigration positions.

Todd Johnson (R) has similar positions on immigration enforcement as Pittenger, but does not mention his position on more foreign workers. We don’t know how he would actually vote.

Tenth Congressional District in North Carolina:

Patrick McHenry (R) (the incumbent) has gone from being reasonably good on real immigration reform and enforcement to being very weak…….he is part of the US House Republican leadership as Chief Deputy Whip and has to tow their line or be removed from leadership. No doubt this has affected his immigration voting record for the worse.

McHenry’s three Republican opponents Albert Wiley Jr, Jeff Baker, and Jeff Gregory all appear to be very conservative but none have a website. I have been able to find little about their immigration positions. Good luck on doing more local research if you are in the 10th Congressional District.

Eleventh Congressional District in North Carolina:

Mark Meadows (R) (the incumbent) has been great on immigration enforcement and great on reducing unnecessary work visas and has voted accordingly. He gets a grade of A- from NumbersUSA and NC LISTEN.

Twelfth Congressional District in North Carolina:

Ryan Duffie (R) has good positions on immigration enforcement. He is very knowledgeable of immigration and immigration policies. The jury is out as to whether he would press to reduce legal immigration or work visas, but he is sensible on the matter and shows some concern for what is best for citizens.

Paul Wright (R) is for enforcement of our immigration laws. He does not state any other views on immigration.

Thirteenth Congressional District in North Carolina:

George Holding (R) (was the incumbent, but he is now running in the revised 2nd District)

John Blust (R) has a great record. Blust has been in the NC House for years and has sponsored numerous legislation and always voted and had the guts to speak on the House floor and in committees for real immigration enforcement for North Carolina and protecting jobs for citizens and legal residents.

Kay Daly (R) is a conservative and has completed the NumbersUSA True Reformer survey and has promised to support real immigration enforcement, to protect jobs for only legal residents and to reduce legal immigration. She has worked at the national level to support real immigration enforcement. She has a lot of endorsements from well know conservatives.

Ted Budd (R) because of his particular business interests and the “big money” supporting him, it is doubtful he will be on the side of meaningful immigration enforcement. He doesn’t even mention immigration on his website.

Andrew Brock (R) is in the NC Senate and has supported immigration enforcement legislation over the years. He has co-sponsored legislation also.

Julia Howard (R) is in the NC House and she has supported immigration enforcement legislation at the state level. She has co-sponsored legislation also.

Harry Warren (R) is in the NC House and has an awful record on immigration enforcement. He actually sponsored legislation to give legal driving privileges to illegal immigrants and help them get to jobs that belong to citizens.

Dan Barrett (R) has good positions on immigration enforcement. We do not know how he would vote.

Matt McCall (R) has good positions on immigration enforcement. We do not know how he would vote.

Farren Shoaf (R) has very good positions on immigration enforcement. He wants to lower legal immigration, have less foreign worker visas, and advocates for stringent background checks on Muslims refugees. We do not know how he would vote.

NC LISTEN encourages all of our associates to make your own decision concerning candidates to support, but we hope our analysis of their positions will help you make an informed choice.

Once you make your decision, GO and VOTE for your candidate. Early voting starts May 26th.

News & Observer fires American IT workers and hires foreign workers

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

The News & Observer is firing their information technology workers and hiring foreign workers to replace them.

Note how to send them an email down below……

The McClatchy Company, owner of the N&O, says they have no comment about the firings. The N&O for years has been promoting illegal immigration and in effect throwing unemployed North Carolinians under the bus.

Now the McClatchy Co and the N&O are using the same routine used by other unscrupulous businesses…..take my offered wage or my lower wage or I’ll claim I can’t find American workers, then that justifies firing your own workers and hiring foreign replacements. ComputerWorld reports they gave the contract to Wipro and are sending their jobs to India. This is yet another example of how our visa programs and foreign outsourcing is damaging our nation.

Wipro Limited is based in India with some US offices and has filed 27,300 applications for H-1B visas (high tech workers) from fiscal year 2013 to 2015. Wipro was ranked 4th among all H-1B visa sponsors to the USA. So when they aren’t sending our jobs overseas, they are sending foreign workers directly to the USA exploiting our visa program.

And the N&O editorial staff writes from their ivory tower every day lecturing the rest of us……..

CONTACT:

Send an email to Ned Barnett at the N&O and let him know what you think, as he leads their Editorial section.

Mass immigration is hurting unemployment, wages, and even our middle class

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

As I have said, mass immigration is not the root cause of all of our problems, however it is making all of our problems in the USA much worse. The data below speaks to this comment.

The U-6 unemployment rate in North Carolina is near 11%. It is a more encompassing point of data by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics. The recent report by Pew Research shows median household income fell 8% nationwide between 1999 and 2014, as our middle class in the USA is shrinking.

Of the 25 metros that suffered the worst, the population grew 20% faster than the U.S. population over the 15-year span. Many of those areas also experienced the highest increases in the nation in its foreign-born population over the same period. Yes, Econ 101 does apply and adding each year one million legal immigrants with an additional 400,000 net illegal immigrants continuing to either cross our borders or come here with short term visas and never leave, worker oversupply continues to lower wages and cause citizens to lose jobs just as the U.S. Chamber and N.C. Chamber of Commerce know and continue to push for more foreign labor.
