A new regulation set to be published on the last day of the year will allow for more white-collar American jobs to go to foreigners with college degrees, Breitbart News reports.
The proposed regulation
is set to be published on Thursday, followed by a 60-day comment period.
"Obama has gone the Full Monty to bust the immigration system," immigration lawyer John Miano told Breitbart. "What is going on is he is effectively giving Green Cards to [roughly 650,000] people on H-1B visas who are unable to get Green Cards due to the [annual] quotas."
The policy gives an incentive for businesses to hire foreign nationals because they can be paid lower salaries in combination with assurances that their jobs will help them get federal work permits that are a pathway to Green Cards and citizenship, writes Breitbart's Neil Munro.
"In contrast, employers can’t pay American graduates with this combination low-salaries plus the federal promise of citizenship — because the Americans already have citizenship," Munro wrote.
