Ryan lament came as his final efforts to outsource more Americans jobs to foreign workers were discarded in the confused negotiations….
Breitbart: Retiring Paul Ryan today lamented his failure to deliver a global supply of migrant labor to businesses and investors — regardless of ordinary Americans’ desire for decent wages.
Ryan’s failure was ensured by Donald Trump’s 2016 election — and so Trump’s “Hire American” policy is now allowing Americans’ wages to rise amid a shortage of blue-collar workers and protests by business leaders.
Ryan’s lament came as his final efforts to outsource more Americans jobs to foreign workers were discarded in the confused negotiations over Congress’s failure to pass a 2019 budget for the Department of Homeland Security. That defeat for Ryan was missed by media coverage over funding for the border wall.
In Ryan’s farewell speech at the Library of Congress, he said “immigration reform” is needed because it would be good for “the nation,” not because it would be good for individual Americans. “No less than our full potential as a nation here is at stake. But the right mix of policy solutions, it is there,” he said.
In contrast, pro-American immigration reformers say immigration policy should ensure that Americans can earn good wages, raise families and build wealth despite investors’ desires for more cheap labor.
Ryan echoed President George W. Bush’s “any willing worker” goal, which said U.S. companies should be allowed to freely hire foreign visa-workers for jobs at wages that Americans would reject. Ryan said:
[A reform needs] border security and interior enforcement for starters, but also a modernization of our visa system so that it makes sense for our economy and for our people so that anyone who wants to play by the rules, work hard and be part of American fabric can contribute.
Ryan has repeatedly pushed this “any willing worker” plan, even though it would force down wages and pressure Americans to vote for Democratic-style welfare policies.
His ideological support for open borders goes back to 1994 when Ryan helped defeat pro-American immigration reforms in California.
That policy helped deliver a wave of cheap labor migrants that has transformed the Golden State in a Democratic bastion where wealthy donors, real estate owners, teachers’ unions and welfare-dependent poor have forced many middle class Americans to migrate into other states. California used to elect many Republicans to Washington — but the state is now utterly dominated by the Democratic Party.
Nationwide, Ryan’s pro-migration and cheap labor policies have helped the Democrats gain a majority of seats in the House.
Ryan also used his speech to call for national amnesty of illegals, saying a deal must “includes the Dreamers — those who came here through no fault of their own – and ultimately the undocumented population.”
But his call for amnesty was not accompanied by any reciprocal demand that would aid the Americans who would lose jobs, wages, and government resources to the government-dependent arrivals.
