As the United States Senate makes itself as irrelevant as the Roman Senate before it, Obama continues to expand the Imperial Presidency.
Obama Considering Granting 800K Guest-Worker Visas as 90% Believe American Workers Should Be Favored
After meeting with a "bevy" of big-business groups, President Barack Obama is reportedly considering granting them up to 800,000 additional guest-worker visas via executive actions
According to the Associated Press, "one of the more popular requests among business and family groups is a change in the way green cards are counted," which would "essentially free up some 800,000 additional visas the first year." In addition, "other requests have included removing the requirement that some spouses of U.S. citizens return to their native country for at least three years before they can apply for U.S. residency, as well as extending work permits to the spouses of all temporary H1-B skilled workers." The Obama administration is also considering granting work permits for low-skilled industries as well.
The Obama administration "has already increased the number of guest-worker permits by possibly 100,000
when it allowed the spouses of high-tech guest-workers who are applying for permanent residency to obtain permits."
