Information technology workers went before the Senate Judiciary Committee on immigration reform and provided testimony that the US needed to protect skilled US workers. Many testified anonymously because of agreements they signed with employers.
One such worker testified that he lost his job when he was replaced by a foreigner with an H-1B visa. The article claims he is one of more than 400 workers from the same company, Southern California Edison (SCE), who lost jobs to foreigners.
This worker claims to have voted for Obama but is disillusioned over losing his job because of the president’s immigration policies.
“I’ve paid my taxes, obeyed the laws and have been a good citizen supporting the community with donations,” the former SCE worker wrote. “I voted for President Obama and was appalled that he implemented a rule change, which allows work permits to H-1B spouses. My future votes will only go to candidates that support reforms to the H-1B visa program that preserve the American worker.” National Review
Looks like this person got what he voted for. I feel sorry for him and others like him but something tells me he is not the only affected worker who voted for Obama (and other Democrats). Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform the nation. He apologized for America and he discussed his ideas about immigrants long before he was elected. People knew, or should have known, what they were getting.
Obama lacked experience, was a community agitator and catered to illegals before he got elected. These folks are supposed to be smart so they should have seen what was going on.
They probably did and did not worry about it figuring it would not affect them personally. They are like all the people who supported Obamacare but are now unhappy because it is affecting them, something they figured (because Obama promised) would not happen.
So all I can say is elections have consequences and if you had paid attention during the campaigns you would not be before the Senate begging them to rein in an out of control anti American tyrant.
Never surrender, never submit.
