Even as tens of thousands of Tennessee workers are struggling to find a job, Congress has continued to issue 125,000 new work visas a month to immigrants and other foreign workers. This equals 1.5 million new foreign workers each year, who compete directly with Tennessee residents for a very limited number of Tennessee's jobs.
Who benefits from allowing 1.5 million new foreign workers into the U.S. each year? Certainly not the 257,000 residents of Tennessee who are currently unemployed. Unfortunately, Sens. Alexander and Corker have done nothing to reduce the number of foreign workers to the U.S. And as a result, unemployed Tennessee workers continue to suffer.
This continued failure to stand up for jobless Tennessee residents by Sens. Alexander and Corker is inexcusable. Your fellow unemployed Tennessee workers need more opportunities. Please don't delay. Send the critical message below to Tennessee Sens. Alexander and Corker today, urging them to reduce immigration to a more sensible level.
