Companies lay off thousands, then demand immigration reform for new labor
Marx wrote that workingmen have no country. He was wrong--workers are not only religious, but patriotic. It's big business that has abandoned the countries that nourished them, and now want to squeeze even more profits from them by replacing their employees with more easily exploited Third-World workers:
On Tuesday, the chief human resources officers of more than 100 large corporations sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urging quick passage of a comprehensive immigration reform bill. In addition, at the same time the corporate officers seek higher numbers of immigrants, both low-skill and high-skill, many of their companies are laying off thousands of workers.This is wrong.
