The Senate is full of people who believe that American workers should have to compete with millions of imported foreign workers.

But on the Sen. Bingaman amendment to put some limits on the damage to the American worker, the 18 Senators above showed that they apparently have no limits.

Those 18 Senators voted to keep in the bill a provision that the Heritage Foundation announced on Monday would allow corporations to import more than 130 million foreign workers over the next 20 years!!!

Just so you get your facts straight: The 18 Senators above voted to table (kill) the Bingaman amendment, which would have left the 130 million extra foreign workers in the bill.

See the roll call votes on the various other amendments here.

Wyden voted against the 130 million extra foreign workers, kudos to him. Then Smith and Wyden both voted to secure the borders before any bill related to amnesty (it's amnesty Bush) was considered.

Make sure that you contact Wyden and tell him thank you for his votes on these issues. Tell Smith that you don't appreciate the mass importation of workers but that we need to continue to put security before amnesty!

I'm an American worker and I don't have to compete. Don't speak for me.

MM-you're not an American worker. You should read your blog now and then. You're a dabbler with no concept on what it's like to be responsible for someone other than yourself. Get out of your mom's garage and try to support yourself on a gas jockey job.

Yawn... keep talking about me, it makes me giggle seeing as how you have no idea of my life. Regarding your claim;

American, check.
Employed, check.
Earned what I have, check.

I think I classify. Good day.

One last thing:
Get out of your mom's garage and try to support yourself on a gas jockey job.

Why do they get paid crap? Do they need more? Nice socialist rhetoric you commie, you should be careful about changing your stance just to (attempt) arguing with me it hurts your claim and opens you up to contradictions.

How do you know that you aren't competing? Even if you aren't, thousands of other Americans are.

Do you ever think about your fellow Americans or do you just think of yourself and you own situation?

Prove that they are, last time I checked there was a surplus of labor in the U.S.
