    White House calls illegal immigrants ‘Americans-in-waiting’

    The
    White House is now using the term “Americans-in-waiting” to describe the thousands of illegal immigrants waiting for green cards “as a result of our broken immigration system.”The White House used the new phrase Tuesday in an update on President Obama’s executive amnesty actions, titled “Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting,” Weasel Zippers first reported.
    The update announces a “final rule” that will allow the spouses of certain high-skilled workers to “contribute to the economy while they wait to obtain lawful permanent residence status.”

    Is there any doubt left that this is an AMNESTY bill, not just immigration reform?

    And is there any doubt that the intent is to get these people into voting booths as quickly as possible?

    And your reference is a complete and utter LIE.

    Why? If one would READ the White House press release that describes the Americans-in-waiting, it in NO way refers to illegal immigrants. Instead, it's referring to the spouses of LEGAL immigrants - holders of H-1B visas - who ARE allowed to travel here with their spouses when they are hired to work here in America. They are ALL legally here, and what the White House is doing is enabling the highly-skilled immigrants (which is what H-1B visas are for) to be better able to remain here and earn their citizenship.

    So...do you believe we should encourage LEGAL immigration by those who are highly-educated and highly-skilled? Or do you want to exclude them, too? There's others who have come to America who have earned their citizenship in the exact same way. One was a guy named Einstein - you may have heard of him.

    yes thats correct, if a bill is NOT to contain an elemet which does require illegal aliens to leave the nation and return through legal channels, and all they have to do is stay here and ONE day they will be a citizen, then its an amnesty.

    And you counter with your own lie or lack of knowledge.

    H1B visa holders are NOT immigrants. They are highly skilled GUEST workers. There is no path to citizenship for them. They still have to apply for citizenship (if they wish it) like every other potential immigrant. The ONLY reason that visa exists is that we supposedly can't fill the job slots with our own highly skilled workers. In fact, the hiring company must attest they cannot find native labor and they need the foreign labor before any visa is issued.
