Immigration Purge Weakens Economy

New York Times writes "Leave it to the Bush administration to throw thousands of law-abiding American workers and companies off a cliff in perilous economic times. That would be the effect of its decision to press ahead with a bad idea: to force businesses to fire employees whose names dont match the Social Security database. The purge is part of a campaign along with scattershot workplace raids and the partial border fence to make a show of tackling the broken immigration system."

J-1 Visas - J Waivers of Physicians
Greg Siskind writes "Most graduates of foreign medical schools who come to the US to pursue graduate medical training or education do so with a J-1 visa. This category is highly regulated, and anyone who receives graduate medical education on a J-1 visa is automatically subject to the two-year home residency requirement."

Dear Weekly Editor:
Ken Roberts' letter (ID 3/24/08) is correct. We left the U.S. and reside in a foreign country cause our medical bills are adjusted by income, meaning we pay for their medical. Our kids cannot attend the schools we paid property tax for, having the yellow school buses because the gvt is spending our tax money not on us but illegals. If illegals are to work in the u.s. then it must be as the millions of overseas workers around the world who alone take a three year contract and are not a liability. Their families stay in their own country and the workers sends money home. Their pay is like 10% to 20% of an American worker and these jobs must not compete with u.s. workers. Allowing illegals in the u.s. in the numbers we have is the death of american democracy. We fight the wars, and i am a Vietnam Veteran and my own family cannot afford to reside in our own country because we are paying everyone elses way and our gvt does not care about u.s. citizens under the current administration and those religious groups that assist illegals and push americans out of the country. Americans are being drained, have been drained of their freedom meaning disposable income. Thats what freedoms defination is by the intl organizations that rank countries. We have no freedom. We have not enough disposable income to funish everyone else and give up jobs to them also. It is ridiculous. We spend $2billion a day on foreign aid, we spend 15 billion a month on the war and then we must provide for millions of illegals who income does not come close to covering the medical and educational needs of their family. 30,000 overseas workers left Lebenon and they were making $350 a month, but getting paid only two months of the year. If the u.s. permits them to make $350 a month, every month, thats the limit and the company contracting arranges to pay their medical and their family must not live in the u.s draining americans further.
