This same President however fails to see that the end result is the same if they go and let these corporations go and hire illegal aliens to do the work. Sure the job is still here, but instead of sending the work overseas, they brought the foreign worker here to do the job. Illegal aliens are outsourced labor. Instead of sending the work to them, they came to the work.
This is where frequent raids were effective, in that illegal aliens never knew when or where Government ICE Agents would strike next. But now, our President seems to have second thoughts about collecting illegal aliens and sending them back home.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has delayed a series of proposed immigration raids and other enforcement actions at U.S. workplaces in recent weeks, asking agents in her department to apply more scrutiny to the selection and investigation of targets as well as the timing of raids, federal officials said.
A senior department official said the delays signal a pending change in whom agents at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement choose to prosecute -- increasing the focus on businesses and executives instead of ordinary workers.
"ICE is now scrutinizing these cases more thoroughly to ensure that [targets] are being taken down when they should be taken down, and that the employer is being targeted and the surveillance and the investigation is being done how it should be done," said the official, discussing Napolitano's views about sensitive law enforcement matters on the condition of anonymity.
"There will be a change in policy, but in the interim, you've got to scrutinize the cases coming up," the senior DHS official said, noting Napolitano's expectations as a former federal prosecutor and state attorney general. - Washington Post
Corporations that outsource work overseas have been made out to be evil despite economic studies reporting that these corporations ultimately result in more money and work being returned to the US in the long run. Oddly enough, the new Government is completely unwilling to recognize that Illegal aliens taking jobs inside the US is just as 'evil' if not worse since those taking the work are breaking the law because they have no right to work in the US.
Democrats has defended the taking of jobs by illegal aliens by claiming that illegal aliens are only taking jobs that Americans are not willing to do. I have pointed out in the past that there is no such thing as a job that Americans are unwilling to do (and the show DIRTY JOBS provides proof of that weekly). Recent news of a janitor job receiving 700+ applications is more such proof that Americans can be pretty flexible when it comes to taking most any job (That job by the way was in Ohio which is basically the wrong place to be if your looking for work. Which touches on another point, people out of work need to consider moving to where the jobs are.) Anyway, if there is such a thing as jobs Americans are not willing to do, then it is possible that the jobs being exported by American companies are those jobs that Americans are unwilling to do. If Democrats want to use that excuse in defense of Illegal Aliens taking jobs inside the US, then corporations can equally use that excuse to ship jobs out of the country...
Also last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus made similar calls as the caucus met formally with Obama for the first time."Raids that break up families in that way, just kick in the door in the middle of the night, taking [a] father, a parent away, that's just not the American way. It must stop," Pelosi added at a Capitol Hill conference on border issues sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. - Washington Post
