Entire text of the following is cross posted from Right Truth:We already have a ‘guest worker’ program for illegal immigrants (criminal invaders), but most people don’t know about it.Â On the surface the “H” Visa appears to allow only highly skilled, or professional, workers into the US.Â But that is NOT the case.Â Skilled, unskilled and agricultural workersÂ can all enter the US under the “H” Visa.Â According to Bill West’s article in FrontPageMagazine:
What we do historically have, and have had for many years, is…a guest worker program.Â That is the â€œHâ€ Temporary Worker visa.Â Seldom in the current clamor over illegal alien workers and legalization and â€œguest workersâ€ is the existing â€œHâ€ visa program even mentioned.
â€œHâ€ visas traditionally have been used by many high-tech employers, especially in recent years employers like computer engineering firms, to bring in well educated foreign technicians, engineers and scientists who, while on paper are paid the equivalent of their US counterparts, in reality are paid less.Â This brand of white-collar corporate fraud has not been aggressively investigated by INS in the past and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) currently, thanks primarily due to lack of manpower and other investigative priorities set by management.Â Congress has essentially ignored this issue.Â Therefore, this â€œHâ€ visa abuse became widespread and mostly ignored.
The understanding of the “H” Visa is misleading.Â It soundsÂ like ONLY highly skilled workers can enter the USA on this visa, but in fact, “A review of the â€œHâ€ visa system reveals that it is actually quite broad. The H-1B category, the most common one encountered, covers â€œspecialty occupationâ€ workers.Â H-1C is for nurses.Â H-2A is for temporary agricultural workers.Â H-2B is for other temporary workers, both skilled and unskilled. “ Another very important fact that Mr. West makes is that there is already a procedure in effect for legalizing illegals who are already in the country.Â It is calledÂ “Cancellation of Removal and was revised under the 1996 version of the Immigration and Nationality Act and is found at Title 8 US Code,Â Section 1229b.”
Essentially, an illegal alien who has been in the US for ten years or longer, … will be eligible for cancellation of removal and would be allowed to remain permanently in the US and eventually be allowed to apply for naturalized US citizenship.
One of the key elements to obtaining cancellation of removal, however, is the alien must be in removal (deportation) proceedings before an Immigration Court. This means the alien, if not caught by immigration authorities, must surrender himself to those authorities to be placed in such proceedings so they can apply for the relief. source
Excuse me, but doesn’t that sound a bit retarded?!?!Â We who are fighting against criminal invaders to our country don’t understand why current laws are not enforced.Â But, if this law were to be enforced, thousands and even millions, might turn themselves in to authorities and the entire “system now would very quickly collapse”.
Essentially, an illegal alien who has been in the US for ten years or longer, who meets the qualifications noted above, will be eligible for cancellation of removal and would be allowed to remain permanently in the US and eventually be allowed to apply for naturalized US citizenship.Â One of the key elements to obtaining cancellation of removal, however, is the alien must be in removal (deportation) proceedings before an Immigration Court.Â This means the alien, if not caught by immigration authorities, must surrender himself to those authorities to be placed in such proceedings so they can apply for the relief.
Mr. West suggests that while we are debating all these new potential bills and laws, we might just want to look at the laws that are already on the books and try enforcing them! Good luck with that Mr. West!
