Stop Giveaway of 300,000 Prime American Jobs!
Every year, 800,000 Americans graduate from College with degrees in healthcare, business, engineering, math, science, and …
These Graduates’ job prospects are seriously impaired by the additional 300,000 Indian contract workers, plus other H1Bs which would be admitted under the so-called “Fairness to High-Skilled Immigrants Act” (S.386, Kamala Harris – D, CA) to be considered by the Senate this September!
And other relatively low-skilled H1Bs and Immigrants in other categories would continue to take jobs from Americans and depress American Wages and to increase costs to American Taxpayers who already subsidize them for the benefit of the Globalist companies which hire them. (See CCN’s Net Costs of Legal Immigration Study)
S.386 is the companion Bill to H.R. 1044 “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act” (aka “Job Killer for Americans Act”) already passed the House in early July with support from a Majority of Dems and 140 RINO Republicans. (But there is no shortage of American workers as the three studies on which we earlier reported show.)
These Bills are also Disasters because they would greatly increase Legal and, therefore Illegal, Immigration, see also Fact Sheet on HR 1044, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act, 07/08/19, cis.org
Breitbart.com reports on these Bill’s specific negative consequences.
“GOP legislators (140) voted for a bill drafted by business groups and Democrats which provides a green card giveaway to 300,000 Indian contract workers and dramatically increases the incentives for more Indian graduates to take college graduate jobs in the United States.
“The legislation offers roughly 75,000 extra green cards per year to encourage Indian graduates to become contract workers in the United States.
“Indian graduates use the H-1B visa program and the Optional Practical Training program to seek low-wage job offers for U.S. white-collar jobs that are also sought by the 800,000 Americans who graduate from college each year with new degrees in healthcare, engineering, business, science, math, computers or science….
“Kamala Harris Promises Opportunity, but Hides Indian Outsourcing Bill
“Sen. Kamala Harris says she supports U.S. families, but pushes a bill which gives green cards to Indian graduates if they take U.S. jobs.”
“Kevin McCarthy, 140 GOP Reps Vote for Democrat Plan to Outsource Jobs,” breitbart.com 07/10/2019
Moreover, these bills would join the Dream and Promise Act which would legalize DACA Aliens and Millions of Illegal Immigrants also passed earlier this year by the House.
In sum, if both are passed by the Senate and signed by President Trump, they would dramatically increase Legal Immigration and Job Displacement and Wage Depression of American Workers. Enforcement of the “No Public Charge Admitees” Rule, while useful, would not reduce the H1B flow at all and only slightly reduce other admissions.
The Strategy to Stop These Bills
CCN has for years laid out The Strategy for stopping such bills and reducing Legal and Illegal Immigration.
Unfortunately, CCN’s Strategy (see our “The Only Way to Stop Mass Immigration” series et al.) at CarryingCapacity.org has not been adopted by certain other Major National allegedly Reductionist, but de facto Mass Immigration Management Groups.
The Management Groups need to Adopt The Only Strategy which will Work which is out lined in the following excerpts from our recent Alert, MASS Legal Immigration – An Intensifying Threat.
As Key Supporting Points for The Strategy consider,
Even though President Trumps “Deal” with Mexico is, thus far, reducing Illegal Immigration, MASS Legal Immigration is still an Intensifying Threat … Intensifying regarding both Costs and other Negative Impacts, including being a continuing Magnet for Illegals, and
- Stopping Illegal Immigration requires Reducing Legal Immigration
Indeed, the large numbers of “Slots” Available to Legal Immigrants (e.g., especially the de facto Unlimited Asylee Category) creates a Magnet effect for Illegals.
Indeed, the Uncapped Asylee category encourages Trafficking of Children, because it allows any adult bringing a child into the U.S. to become a de facto permanent resident.
- Regarding Costs, consider this summary of CCN’s NET COSTS Study:
U.S. Taxpayers Costs from legal immigration alone – $330 BILLION PER YEAR NET (after subtracting Taxes Immigrants pay) , i.e.,
i. $3.3 TRILLION NET prospectively for the next Decade if Legal immigration is not reduced.
ii. Does NOT include COSTS borne by States and Localities.
iii. $758 MILLION per Year for Each Congressional District. That is, the costs of legal immigration average $1000 per U.S. Taxpayer per year!
iv. 62% of legal immigrants get one or more “free” (i.e., U.S. Taxpayer-funded) Health Care, Health Insurance, Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing & Welfare.
3. EMPLOYMENT CONSEQUENCES
i. CCN Study — 5.9 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE BEEN DISPLACED from JOBS SINCE 2005 by IMMIGRANT WORKERS. See www.carryingcapacity.org.
ii. Confirmed by two other studies, e.g., by Professor of Computer Science, U.C. Davis, Norm Matloff Blog, “Vast Majority of H1B and related visa hires are Cheap Labor Hires”
iii. And by Economist Ed Rubenstein writing for vdare.com
There is no shortage of American Workers! See recent Immigrant Employment Data from CIS.Org below.
The Solution CCN has, for years, supported is an all-categories-included Zero-Net MORATORIUM on LEGAL Immigration.
The number of immigrants admitted annually consistent with Zero-Net Immigration would be approximately 150,000, in contrast to the current number of approximately 1.6 million annually.
CCN’s MORATORIUM Advocacy maximizes Political pressure for substantial reduction in Legal Immigration, quite unlike plans advocated by other National Immigration “Reform” Groups, i.e., Groups which refuse to push a Moratorium and therefore are de facto Mass Immigration MANAGEMENT Groups; not genuine reduction groups. If enacted, their positions are counterproductive because they would ensure unending MASS Immigration.
CCN also exposes and opposes Cultural Marxism — driven by MASS Immigration — and which is The Major Force driving Political Correctness, Mass Immigration, Multi-Culturalism, Identity Politics, and Destruction of Western Nations and their Traditions, and ANTIFA.
- POPULATION GROWTH CONSEQUENCES
In the background, world population increases by about 80 million per year, and pressure to come to U.S.A. will only increase. Since 2005, an average of 1.5 Million Legal Immigrants settled in the U.S.A. annually. Recently, 1.6-1.7 Million have settled here annually. The US Census reports that 400,000 legal immigrants per year settle in California alone.
5. ENVIRONMENTAL CONSEQUENCES OF MASS IMMIGRATION
i. FARMLAND & NATURAL HABITAT LOSS
ii. “For Every Person added to U.S. (or California’s) Population, one Acre of precious Farmland or Natural Habitat is lost to Developed Uses (e.g., Malls, Urban Sprawl, Tract Housing) (Pimentel et al, Cornell)
iii. California: Potable water demands from growing cities and from ground water depletion far in excess of recharge rates) have led to a long-term Potable Water Crisis resulting in some jurisdictions (e.g., all of Orange County, California) being forced to drink “Toilet to Tap Water” in recent years. One year of heavy rains has not solved this problem
iv. Our Zero-Net Moratorium push sends the Critical message that we must Stop MASS Legal Immigration in order to protect our environment.
As well, Legal and Illegal Immigration is a Major cause of Increased Homelessness and Crowding (and higher Taxes everywhere in the USA) especially in those Areas which receive large numbers of Immigrants — New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles.
Consider California, which receives about 400,000 Legal Immigrants per Year. California has many attractions, generous Taxpayer-funded benefits among them.
For example, in addition to the aforementioned Costs, there are other very substantial Impacts. Those 400,000 Legal Immigrants plus the hundreds of thousands of Illegal Immigrants create a great and increasing demand for Housing. And since many of the Legal Immigrants especially are well-heeled and heavily subsidized by us taxpayers, they have the Financial ability to “crowd out” the most impoverished Americans — many of whom end up living in the streets, or, if they are “lucky” in tent cities and Trailers. This Demographic Impact is merely the beginning.
The crowding of taxpayers-funded schools, roads, hospitals, emergency rooms and public Transportation Systems is largely a result of MASS immigration, both legal and illegal.
“…[I]mmigration overload has adversely impacted the carrying capacity of many schools … Especially K to 12…
“… 23% of students in public schools Today are from immigrant households … High Immigration States have seen even more dramatic increases … Nevada 35%, New Jersey 34% Texas 31%, …. Even in states that are not traditional Immigrant Destinations — Minnesota, Alaska, Kansas, … I in 7 students are from immigrant households …”

Therefore, please push your Congressional Representatives hard NOW to:
- Above all Push for an All-Categories-Included Zero-Net MORATORIUM on Legal Immigrants and, of course, a “no” Vote on S386.
- FULLY FUND THE WALL AND END CATCH AND RELEASE
- Implement E-VERIFY
- End Anchor Baby BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP
- Eliminate all CHAIN MIGRATION except for spouses & minor children of US citizens
- Outlaw Sanctuary Cities and States, because they are Magnets for criminals
- Refuse admission to those convicted of a crime and deport them
Contact your Senators now because we expect S386 will be voted on when the Senate reconvenes in September!
Please help Carrying Capacity Network intensify our PUSH for the policies above by increasing our Activist Mobilization, Media, lobbying and public education efforts with a tax-deductible donation.
Any donation, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated. Now is the Time to Donate for Maximum Effect!
The 2020 Election Campaign is already underway!
And remember that CCN is a Genuine Mass Immigration REDUCTION Group, so Donations to CCN have far more impact dollar for dollar than Donations to Mass Immigration MANAGEMENT Groups who refuse to support a Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal. (See unfairus.org which describes the adverse effects National Immigration Management groups’ Actions had on Arizona Activists’ attempts to reduce immigration into Arizona.)
One National group focuses SOLELY on ILLEGAL Immigration which is futile because large numbers of legal slots are a Magnet for Illegals, so to reduce Illegal we MUST also reduce Legal “Slots”.
Consider another of these groups whose strategies are copied by several others:
- This group supports a reduction in Legal immigration to 500,000 and “eventually” to 300,000, which would, even if achieved, NOT result in sustainability — Immigrant fertility rates have historically been well in excess of replacement level — and that the world’s population increases by 80 Million per year, the pressure to emigrate to the USA will only intensify, especially if encouraged by the USA’s current pro-Mass Immigration policies. In sum, enactment of this group’s position would result in unending Mass Immigration-fueled U.S. population growth.
- And perhaps MOST IMPORTANT . . . COUNTERPRODUCTIVE because it explicitly sanctions unending Mass Immigration, and indeed legitimizes it!! Thus, this and similar groups are Mass Immigration MANAGEMENT Groups and NOT genuine Reduction groups.
- And, in any event, pushing that position is COUNTERPRODUCTIVE because, in any Negotiation, one should never start with the position where one wants to end up! “Lifeboat USA” is at increasing risk of sinking!
Therefore, CCN invites once again all genuine REDUCTIONIST organizations to Join our Diversity Coalition for an Immigration MORATORIUM . . . a Coalition supported by many Immigrants from all Ethnic Groups.

Note re Adverse Effect of Mass Immigration on employment of Natives
- “There has been a long-term decline in the labor force participation rate of working-age (18 to 64) natives without a bachelor’s degree. Only 70.8 percent of natives in this group were in the labor force in the first quarter of 2019; in 2007, before the recession, it was 74.4 percent, and in the first quarter of 2000 it was 76.7 percent.
- “The labor force participation rate of natives without a college degree has shown no meaningful improvement in recent years. …
- “In 45 states plus the District of Columbia, labor force participation of natives without a college degree was lower in the first quarter of 2019 than the same quarter in 2007.
- “Comparing 2000 to 2019, all 50 states plus the District of Columbia have a lower labor force participation rate for natives without a college degree in 2019. …
- “In the first quarter of 2019, the labor force participation rate of immigrants (18 to 64) without a bachelor’s degree was 73.3 percent, somewhat better than that of natives, but still below their rate of 73.8 percent in the first quarter of 2007. …
