    Massive foreign worker increase back alive in Senate backroom negotiations - just in time for a great depression


    By Roy Beck, Monday, September 15, 2008, 1:04 AM

    Just as we had seemed to push back attempts for massive increases in foreign workers by the U.S. House last week, we now learn the danger has risen to Orange Alert level in the Senate.
    Let's take a look at some of the millions of Americans who are being ignored by Senate staffers as they negotiate behind closed doors to bring in additional permanent immigrant workers next year:

    THESE AMERICANS BEING SACRIFICED IN BACKROOM SENATE TALKS
    In August, 592,000 additional Americans were added to the official unemployment rolls.
    Total number of Americans who are officially unemployed, looking for a job and can't find one? 8.28 million!
    Current official unemployment rate (highest in 5 years)? 6%
    Official unemployment rate considerably higher for Hispanic women: 8.7%
    Rate twice as high for Black American men: 12.3%!
    Look to see whether Sen. McCain or Sen. Obama show any concerns at all for these people in their Presidential races.

    CLEAN E-VERIFY RE-AUTHORIZATION AGAIN IN DOUBT
