American Grads punished by DHS
#1
Feds dangle $12,000 bonus to firms that hire foreign students

Quote:The Department of Homeland Security is readying a plan to expand a program that pays U.S. employers to hire foreign STEM students taught in America, a move that could end up punishing American college grads and even the elderly, according to an immigration think tank.

In pushing to allow more foreign students into the so-called "optional practical training program," DHS said that it will help businesses and colleges by keeping those foreign students in the U.S. following their American-taught science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM, curriculum.

But the Center for Immigration Studies said it will punish American STEM students competing for those same jobs. And, they added, in adjusting how the foreign students are categorized as employees, they get out of paying payroll taxes used to help fund programs like Social Security and Medicare.

Currently, the program urges companies to hire STEM students for a year. CIS said firms are paid up to $10,000 to participate. The new proposal, said CIS, is to add on another year and $2,000 in bonuses.


David North, a CIS fellow, said that the proposed changes should be headlined: "DHS Proposes Bonuses for Employers Who Hire Aliens Rather than Citizens."

He explained:

DHS, by defining a recent college grad as a student, takes both the worker and the employer out from under payroll taxes — thus penalizing the Social Security and Medicare trust funds directly, and our elders indirectly. Congress did not make this decision, at least not directly; but since foreign students and their employers have privileges denied to citizens and green card holders alike, the bonus has been created.

In the current document, DHS proposes to extend the additional 17 months for STEM workers to 24 months; thus from a total period of 29 months to 36 months, about a 20 percent increase. If the bonus given to employers for hiring a STEM graduate is worth $10,000 under the old rules, it is now worth $12,000, and is that much more likely to cause an employer to hire a former F-1 student than a green card or citizen graduate.

Sarah R. Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, argued in a release that expanding the program is good for American schools and businesses.

"Our nation will benefit from keeping international students here, educated in U.S. colleges and universities here while they receive additional training, rather than sending them out of the country. At the same time, U.S. employers will benefit from the increased ability to rely on the skills acquired by U.S. educated-STEM students, as well as their knowledge of markets in their home countries."

I don't think most people, myself included fully understand the damage Obama and his merry band of leftist radicals has caused this country. In order to repair it, we will seem cruel, xenophobic, haters.
It's really really bad.

The ones sticking their necks out now, against common core, or border security or fiscal responsibility are relentlessly attacked for well, name your label. 
It is going to be a tremendous effort of good Americans who love our country and hold our principals dear, to not give two fucks what the opposition thinks. Tell them motherfuckers the truth and dare them to push us. They are bullies. They are weak but their numbers give them false security. 
We are strong. We will win.

But it has to be repaired no matter how it makes us look. We need to grow a thick skin because they will call us everything from Racist to Nazi. Screw those sons of bitches. I am not going to let the moral outrage of treasonous bastards dictate how I think or speak.

As far as I am concerned the multiculturalists are guilty of treason against the USA, Europe, Canada and Australia.
If you live your life using simple common sense you are a now a member of the extreme right.

We are the ones who take it back and repair and restore it.
Reminds me of a meme I saw on a ww2 Sargent who when told that the enemy has us on all fronts. We are surrounded he was told.
He replied "those poor bastards"
