The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 defined a non-immigrant temporary worker1 under the original H-1 visa, as:

“an alien having a residence in a foreign country which he has no intention of abandoning (i) who is of distinguished merit and ability and who is coming temporarily to the United States to perform temporary services of an exceptional nature requiring such merit and ability.”

In other words, this person would have been qualified to an exceptional extent, such that no other person in the U.S. could provide the service or expertise. Of course, businesses smelled an opportunity. Continue reading »

As we all know, there is a refugee problem on our southern border as nearly 50,000 children (many unaccompanied) are making the dangerous trek to try to escape grinding poverty and violence in their home countries for a better life. But the country which gave our ancestors their chance at a better life for us, who took in the tired and the poor of the world, is no longer open for charity. The white “Christians” have theirs now, so the doors are closed, and that’s why the anti-children Christians get today’s Douche Award.

Tea Partyers and Republicans of all stripes, most claiming the mantle of Christianity, have literally ganged up on buses loaded with these children doing nothing more than taking them to processing centers. They will literally kill people for performing abortions, do all they can to end a woman’s right to control her body, and claim that a fertilized egg is a human, but once you’re born…fuck you.

Paul BabeuWe even have Arizona’s Pinal County Sheriff, Paul Bebeu, who leaked that 40 of the Children would be transported to a Children’s Academy in Oracle. The response has been for local protesters to promise to black the bus, as has happened in other places. You can’t imagine the hate that’s just dripping in the comments on this article about it. Let me remind of what a great guy Babeu is. He’s a closeted gay man who was dating an illegal immigrant himself, and threatened to have his lover deported if he outed him. So, he’s OK with illegal immigrants who “service” him, but not others.

I daily grow more disgusted by the selfishness and hatred espoused by these so-called Christians. They seem to lack even the smallest understand of scripture that isn’t about condemning others. They miss the entire Gospel Message of, each to his own needs, and now they’ve thrown that whole part about suffering the little children to come unto, for is such the kingdom of heaven.

To fully appreciate the ideology of large parts of the Republican Party, one needs to look past Capitol Hill and consider what state GOP officials are up to. Take Utah, for example.

Several top Republican officials in Utah – including the lieutenant governor, the state attorney general, and U.S. Rep. Chris Cannon – gathered over the weekend for an annual GOP county convention where attendees debated a resolution on immigration. The debate didn’t go well.

Don Larsen, chairman of legislative District 65 for the Utah County Republican Party, had submitted a resolution warning that Satan’s minions want to eliminate national borders and do away with sovereignty.

In a speech at the convention, Larsen told those gathered that illegal immigrants “hate American people” and “are determined to destroy this country, and there is nothing they won’t do.”

Illegal aliens are in control of the media, and working in tandem with Democrats, are trying to “destroy Christian America” and replace it with “a godless new world order – and that is not extremism, that is fact,” Larsen said. […]

Republican officials then allowed speakers to defend and refute the resolution. One speaker, who was identified as “Joe,” said illegal immigrants were Marxist and under the influence of the devil. Another, who declined to give her name to the Daily Herald, said illegal immigrants should not be allowed because “they are not going to become Republicans….”

Wow.
