It sounded really great:Don`t let immigrants take US jobs
Short-term positions filled through immigration should be utilized by Americans.
By David R. Francis The Christian Science Monitor
February 2, 2010
And it started out so well:
About 15 million Americans are unemployed. Yet Washington allows businesses to bring in about 1 million foreigners a year to take supposedly short-term jobs that many jobless would leap at taking if they could.
The Francis piece is built around work by
the Center for Immigration Studies
(CIS) on short term work visas (such as those shamefully exploited by the Publix Supermarket
group): the text to a picture of a Jamaican working in a Massachusetts restaurant roundly declares he is
one of 84 Jamaican workers at the inn who come to the United States on H2B visas, or seasonal work visas, that year, a contingent that shouldn`t be back this year as Americans look for jobs.
article spelling out the need for an Immigration Moratorium
!!! Well not quiteâ€¦in fact the word is never mentioned and the article meanders off to talk about the Haitian Amnesty
. On this it usefully quotes Mark Krikorian
as far as his organization can find, no previous refugee group granted TPS has ever been deported. Temporary amnesty is in fact permanent.
but reaches no conclusion. Maybe the CSM
editors wouldnâ€™t allow one.
Which is a whole lot better thanTemporary Protected Status for Haitians: not an amnesty card for illegal immigrants
By Michel J Wildes The Christian Science Monitor

This is a clear F.The author
- not just an immigration lawyer
but the son of an immigration lawyer
- directly states
Letâ€™s be clear: Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is not an amnesty card for those entering the US illegally.
The reality of course, as Mark Krikorian said the previous day, and as Juan Mann documented here
years ago, is that it is indeed effective amnesty
. As our friend Federale
said at the time
No alien ever given TPS has ever left the U.S. We still have Philippinos in the U.S. from the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991. We still have Hondurans in the U.S. from Hurricane Mitch in 1998. We still have Montserratians in the U.S. because of a volcanic eruption in 1995. No one leaves once they get TPS. There is nothing temporary about TPS. It is nothing more than another way to immigrate to the U.S. permanently
Could it be that Michael J. Wildes assumed from the name of the newspaper he was writing for a bunch of ignorant and stupid peasants?
The rest of his essay is notable for the total lack of consideration he shows for the costs accommodating these Haitians will inflict on Americans.Ask
Michael J Wildes: how he can justify propagating such a blatant falsehood in a major newspaper?
