Amnesty Insanity – Where immigration intersects with Obamacare, Americans lose

Senator Ted Cruz speaks in support of his amendment to defund Obamacare.  The over 1000 page Senate bill  encourages small business to hire newly created Registered Provisional Immigrants  (RPI) (formerly known as illegal immigrants) over American citizens and legal permanent residents.  He gives several examples of how this amnesty bill will penalize and create severe hardships on small businesses and their current legal workers.  The CBO reported unemployment will increase and wages will decrease.  We have to ask our representatives why this bill includes massive economic incentives to hire Registered Provisional Immigrants and reduce the hours of American citizens and legal permanent residents. If these Registered Provisional Immigrants are exempted from Obamacare, will they be required to obtain and prove they have sufficient health insurance coverage for themselves and their families?  Or will they be stealing jobs from American citizens and legal immigrants and also be given “free” health care, provided by those of us already struggling to survive in this stagnant economy and can barely afford this ourselves?

Unemployment continues to be high, as Sen. Cruz shows in his presentation:

  • Hispanics – 9.1%
  • Teenagers – 24.5%

Surveys from various organizations show that immigration and amnesty are not a top priority for Americans.  Their main concerns are employment and the economy.

Why is Congress spending so much time and energy in crafting another monstrous bill no one has read that yesterday passed the Senate with a vote of 68 – 32?
