Technology workers who say they lost their jobs to immigrant workers lost their bid to halt President Obama’s latest guest-worker program after a court ruled Sunday evening that they couldn’t prove the new workers would specifically compete with them.

Federal District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan’s ruling means Mr. Obama’s controversial program can go into effect Tuesday as planned.

Under the program, legal guest-workers’ spouses, who now are generally barred from working, will be allowed to apply for work permits, giving them the chance to win jobs.

    Corrupt government. Equals = PERVERTION OVER “WE THE PEOPLE”!!! Remember the Alamo?Equals. “REMEMBER. THE CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS”!!! NOW PERVERTED POWER OVER WE THE PEOPLE!!!
    “KEEP THE POWDER DRY, LOCK & LLOAD” FIGHTS ON!!!

    Unions, unlike their members, support immigration, legal or not. They hope to snap up new workers. More workers, more union dues, no matter the members’ wages.

    First in line? There is no line. It’s a “free” for all. Illegal aliens don’t come here for work. They come here for the “free” stuff, so-called because it’s funded by unnamed taxpayers and redistributed to unnamed, multi-named illegal aliens and entitlement collectors. Those who work do it to supplement their main source of income — “free” stuff.

    You would think that the people located in high crime, high unemployment big city portions of the United States and their government representatives would be speaking up; also it would not take long for the U.S. military to erect an effective barrier along the Mexican border. They are being paid anyway and many are trained engineers. Call it the war on illegals.

    It seems like some of these “dishonorable honorables” should be brought up on impeachment charges.

      shoulda, woulda, coulda……….never going to happen…..too many dim wits out there……….

  • Mike J. Hrivnak

    Immigrant workers will earn less, meaning they will be hired over our citizens and will hold wages down

    • I Seigel

      Another good reason to support unions, who fight for good wages, good benefits, and long-lasting jobs.

  • bobnstuff

    So where is the illegal immigrant in the story? These people are here legally. Also how are they going to the front of the line? If you can’t get american workers what are you going to do. People who hire illegal immigrants should go to jail. Instead they pay a $300 fine.

  • ronald larson

    obozzo will be bringing down our country even more if WE THE PEOPLE don’t stop him.

    • plum82

      and how do you think WE should do that?
      how about YOU start ?

  • Bradley Lutze

    Obama bin Ladin is working this plan of his, how he sets in that seat is beyond me, but he and all of congress is crooked, and this government has been crooked sinc Abraham Lincholn, so where do we start? Because we definitely need to start over again

    • CantBPC Anymore

      It’s called money Bradley. Odds are, George Soros’ money. Soros’ hobby used to be bring down banks. Evidently he got bored with that and is now working on bringing down the US. Sad thing is, he’s winning.

    • plum82

      lmao……….start over again? i vote to start over again in the first election when the morons voted a mu-slime homo for president…..

  • SueJer

    Isn’t this the way Marxist societies are supposed to work? Totalitarian judges and the Feds overriding the constitution and all the legitimate doctrines this country was founded upon. Since a Marxist has become this country’s leader, this nation has become the laughing stock of the world. Every ILLEGAL that’s been allowed entry, will take middle class jobs at will, because they have agreed to lower wages and will be welfare subsidized by those who have been able to hold on to fewer American jobs!!! Is this what you voted for???

  • I Seigel

    According to the article, one group of laid-off tech workers in California has complained about this. Those are the only people to be “affected”. I’m sure that laid-off tech workers are competing with illegals for roofing and landscaping jobs.

    And the high tech foreigners who are being hired? They’ve been issued those H-1B visas. Who is pushing for more of those visas?? The high-tech companies in Silicon Valley!!!

    Yawn. Another bogus, twisted, totally biased story from the Sun Myung Moon/Unitarian Church Washington Times.

    • Tiberius Gracchus

      Uh…I think that’s “Unification” church. Unitarians are *far* less biased (well, maybe not for most on this forum!). But kudos on the clarification. Most here are just apoplectic and simply assume that all these foreign tech workers are somehow “illegal”. Far from it. The big tech firms have for years been going before Congress, every session, asking for further liberalization of the immigration quotas for H-1B. It matters little which party the Prez is from….money talks in Washington, and that’s the *only* entity doing any talking any more. Half the software being developed by American countries is being done by outsourced contractors or overseas branches, mostly in India. And India supplies the bulk of H-1B visa applicants. Most on this forum, unfortunately, are so blinded by their xenophobia, they don’t see what these corporations are getting away with. You want to cut taxes? Great, there go your schools, there goes your kids’ future job prospects. Go ahead, cut your own throat. Let these companies hire foreign workers, all “legal” immigrants (if only nominally temporary), because you’re too cheap to educate your own kids. What goes around, comes around, folks. While you’re here spouting trash about how your “freedoms” are being violated, you’re becoming slaves to the megacorporate multinationals that only look to get the job done the cheapest way they can find…there’s no loyalty to country here, folks, get it through your head. Bob Dylan still said it best: “You’re just a pawn in their game…”. Time was, government and business worked together in this country and accomplished great things…interstate highway system, the best infrastructure in the world, the space program that put a man on the moon. Then the multinationals got greedy, and convinced everyone that government was bad, that we shouldn’t be paying taxes, that free trade was good for all. Right….now you’re in monumental debt to the Chinese, the one country you *should* be afraid of, not some poor Mexicans who just want to mow your lawn. Smooth move, Jethro….

      • I Seigel

        Yes, sorry, I meant Unification Church, not Unitarian. I was apoplectic when I was typing.

        • plum82

          hmmmm seems Baltimore is getting the treatment…glad i don’t have, excuse me, didn’t have, a business there…the low life scum looted and burned it all down…..
          some people NEVER learn……

      • CantBPC Anymore

        Unitarians aren’t less biased. They’re biased in that they expect everyone to accept other’s faiths. They would deny that, but the celebrate every faith’s holy days in their services. Sorry, but I don’t want to celebrate pagan, wiccan and muslim holy days.

      • plum82

        Is anyone up to date on the state of police in the USA today……the slime are trying to deter them from doing their job now….apparently the the crooks are the good guys and the police are the bad guys…let’s see how that’s going to work…….glad i don’t own a store……..

  • ZACAL

    America is receiving exactly what she voted for. It also mirrors to a tee our education systems results. What you see is what you get. It is not “America the Beautiful” anymore. It’s America in the ugly hood. The media used to stand by America and keep the people informed on truth and facts. The media has now chosen political sides. How do all you folks like the results.

    • Paul Dragotto

      I DON’T LIKE YOUR COMMENT. POLITICIANS LIE!1 PERIOD!! OUR EDUCATION IS DIFFERINT IN ALL STATES. YOU CAN HAVE THE BEST EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKING, BUT IN THE LOW INCOME , GANG INVESTED AREAS THE SCHOOLS FAIL BECAUSE OF THE TRASHY PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THOSE COMMUNITY’S. CALIFORNIA HAS A GREAT EDUCATION SYSTEM . JUST IN THE BLACK AREAS OF SOUTH CENTRAL LA, YOU HAVE LAZY BLACKS AND ILLEGALS THAT JUST CORRUPT THE SCHOOL SYSTEM THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT LEARNING. THE MEDIA? HAS BEEN GAGED BY ORDER OF OBAMA. I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT. I’M GOOD FRIEINDS WITH DAN RATHER.

      • Terry Rushing

        Don’t shout!

        • plum82

          maybe it needs SHOUTING ~~~~~ a lot of deaf assholes out there ~~~~~~~~~~

    • KDC

      • plum82

      The media doesn’t report news anymore, they editorialize everything. To try to know what’s really happening out there we who care have to do the research ourselves.

      I am sick of the media. I am sick of our politicians. I am particularly sick of the ones who say they’re conservative, but are as conservative as any other socialist.

      I considered the destroyer-in-chief briefly when he first started running in 2007. But then I read his book “Dreams” and ran away as fast as I could. He hates this country and everything she stood for. He hates his white side and is taking it out on us. He is an arrogant narcissist. He he a congenital liar bought and paid for.

      • plum82

        You nailed it…….he is a narcissist a-hole……..and every idiot in the USA voted for him TWICE…….

        • CantBPC Anymore

          Not everyone voted for him even once.

          • plum82

            I SAID……every IDIOT voted for him twice…….well they see what they got don’t they…noooo come to think of it, they just still DO NOT get it….AND it boggles my mind that those dirt bag mu-slime dirt bags invoked the name of GOD in their tribute to Biden’s son Beau……all of us with 1/8 of a brain kno to them it’s allah NOT GOD……….allah sucks & so do michelle & obummer….

          • CantBPC Anymore

            That’s why I call him obayme and call them demoncrats.

            The tribe muhammad came from worshipped Ba’al, whose name became al’alah, then allah.

    • plum82

      You got it AND now the police are the bad guys…i vote for every cop in the USA to quit……let the scum bags see how they like it……..I guarantee they WILL NOT……….

      The media doesn’t report news anymore, they editorialize everything.

  • Gerry Costa

    Another one of obozo’s puppet corrupt unqualified judges. What a bunch of trash and the worst part is that businesses will hire these POS illegals for next to nothing. If this is not a miscarriage of justice then there never will be.

    Corrupt judges, corrupt politicians, equals a third world result….

      Tax/regulation evading alien employment “rips-off” the USA & citizens!

      Criminal alien invaders @ $6 cash/hr with no tax/fringes costs criminal employers $12,480/yr.
      Criminal employees take home $12,480 cash + $36,545 government subsidies totals $49,025 tax free!
      $49,025 net / 25% wage tax is a $65,367 taxable wage that, with 30% tax/fringes costs legal employers $84,977/yr ($40.85/hr)!

      The multiple felony criminal 40/hr. invader takes home $16,352/yr (50%) more than 34.6 hr citizens!
      The multiple felony employer pays $12,480 for a BLS 65,491 average taxed wage and pockets $53,011for every Tax evading criminal employed!

      Government pays both alien and citizen subsidies $36,545/each = $73,090
      Government loses taxed job @ 25% employee & 30% employer tax on $50,378 = $27,708
      ($20,100 tax lost if calculated @ $36,545 = $93,190 total @ 11 million = $1.03 Trillion)
      Government total loss per illegal alien job is $100,798… @ 11 million = $1.11 trillion

      A $10/hr. wage is $20,800/yr and costs employers $27,040/yr with 30% tax/fringe. Take home is $15,600 after 25% tax-deductions, and $13,494 @ BLS34.6/hr!

      (Ref 2014 BLS info & 2012 $402 billion cost @ 11 million illegal aliens).

      The Chamber of Commerce supports Illegal immigration… WHY???
