Bring All Foreigners to U.S. Who Promise to Create Jobs

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, now running in the 2020 Democrat presidential primary, has said the United States should import every foreign national “from around this world” who promise to create jobs.

During a 2010 interview with ABC News, Bloomberg said if he were president, his only requirement for a foreign national to secure a Green Card would be if they promise to create ten or more U.S. jobs, regardless of the impact that such legal immigration has on America’s working and middle class.

“If I were the president, working with Congress, I would give a Green Card to anybody from around this world who wants to come here and create a business,” Bloomberg said. “They keep the Green Card, let’s say, ten or more workers.”

Such a plan could potentially import tens of millions of legal immigrants every year to the U.S. — a level of legal immigration that the nation has never experienced.

Bloomberg also falsely claimed in the interview that there “are no statistics” to support the belief that illegal aliens take jobs away from America’s working class.

“There’s a widely held belief, perhaps you think it’s wrong, by many Americans that people who are here illegally are taking jobs that American citizens could take,” the ABC News interviewer told Bloomberg.

Bloomberg responded:

There is that belief. There are no statistics to back it up and I can tell you we have, we estimate, roughly 500,000 undocumented illegals in this city and basically they come here to work, they have very low crime, they don’t use our schools because they are young and they tend not to bring their families and they don’t go to hospitals. You don’t need hospital care when you are young.

Research not only finds that mass immigration encourages job discrimination against Americans, but it also keeps wages low for big business executives to cut labor costs and increase their profit margins.

Already in the last decade, the U.S. brought nearly 11 million legal immigrants to the country — a population larger than New York City — who almost immediately begin competing against America’s working and middle class for jobs. Of those nearly 11 million who arrived since 2008, nearly eight million came to the U.S. for no other reason than to reunite with foreign relatives already in the country.

Currently, the nation’s Washington, DC-imposed mass legal immigration policy — where about 1.5 million unskilled legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S. every year — is a boon to corporate executives, Wall Street, big business, and multinational conglomerates, as America’s working and middle class have their wealth redistributed to the country’s top earners through wage stagnation.

Simon Jolin-Barrette denies wanting to create lists of ‘historic’ anglos

“All new arrivals that we welcome must be welcomed in French,” Simon Jolin-Barrette says.

QUEBEC — The minister responsible for the French language has denied that the Coalition Avenir Québec government has plans to create lists of Quebecers who would be eligible for government services in English.

“There was never any question of lists,” Simon Jolin-Barrette told the legislature Wednesday. “The issue up for discussion was that new arrivals need to communicate with the state in French.”

Jolin-Barrette, who is also the minister of immigration, was responding to a call from Jacques-Cartier MNA Greg Kelley to clarify remarks he made a few weeks ago in announcing immigrants to Quebec will no longer be eligible for government services to be delivered in English.

The exception, Jolin-Barrette said, will be for what he referred to as the “historic English minority.”

But the definition of this community remains vague, with Kelley accusing the Coalition Avenir Québec of creating angst for anglophones because it has thus far failed to define the category beyond saying it means Quebecers who have the right to send their children to English schools.

“I don’t know if the minister read The Gazette or other anglophone media, but people are worried and the government is doing nothing to reassure them,” Kelley fired at Jolin-Barrette during daily question period.

Kelley, who is the Liberal opposition critic for relations with English-speaking Quebecers, tried the same question last week to no avail.

The time, responding to Jolin-Barrette’s remarks about lists, Kelley said the minister clearly used the word lists in a CTV report.

“Mr. Speaker, which list is the minister talking about?” Kelley said Wednesday. “Since this statement Nov. 5, the minister has done nothing to explain his idea.

Switching to English, Kelley added: “If he is the one saying that he was cited out of context, he needs to clarify the situation. He has not and he is not taking the time.

“I give him the opportunity right now in this House to clarify. What does he mean by a list and what does he mean by historic anglophone? The people deserve to know.”

“There is no list, there is no question of lists,” Jolin-Barrette answered in French. “What I wanted to underscore is the fact that for the Quebec state, the official language of the Quebec state is French.”

“All new arrivals that we welcome must be welcomed in French.”
