Spouses of Guest Workers Now Eligible for Work Permits Under Obama Actions

Caroline May, Breitbart, May 26, 2015

The Department of Homeland Security is now accepting employment authorization applications for certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B visa holders.

In February, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director León Rodríguez announced that, come May, the Obama administration would be extending employment authorization eligibility to a category of immigrant previously ineligible to work in the U.S.–dependent spouses of H-1B immigrants.

DHS began accepting applications under the new H-4 employment rule–which was part of the executive actions on immigration President Obama put in motion on November 20–Tuesday.

When the Obama administration announced the expansion in February, it anticipated that the number of individuals eligible to apply for work permits under the rule could be 179,600 in the first year and 55,000 for each subsequent year.

Last month, a group of former Southern California Edison employees–displaced by H-1B visa holders–sued the administration over the new H-4 rule, arguing that it negatively impacts their job prospects.

    All the whites should move out of Cali and let it go totally brown. Then, watch from the sidelines as they run out of water and can’t sustain their communities. After TSHTF, and the browns come crawling to the South and the Midwest, we should shut them out of the labor force, making them go back to where they came from. Then, we recolonize the western states they destroyed, and fix them.

    This has been, more or less, my dream for America, and it is why I do not feel bad about advocating expatriation. We cannot fight a war. We cannot kick them out. Laws at this point are not effective enough. We just leave and let them self-destruct.

    • Murphcon

      Oh no. Leave the white libs there as a small minority so they can feel the diversity.

      • LHathaway

        yes, small numbers of libs there to manage things. Don’t forget to ramp up section 8 programs so high these shining stars are forced to truly live among diversity. Anything less would be too much like a shadow of apartheid. Whites there would have to be spread evenly among the population to prevent any kind of re-segregation. It might be tough to find enough of them, but every large neighborhood, say, every 80 homes or so would have to have at least one liberal homesteader. We’ll be more than happy to bus them to their home if they would by chance want to resist. It’s not forced busing, it’s a fight against segregated neighborhoods. Who could be against that?

        • listenupbub

          I love it when you try to hold liberals accountable. You should infiltrate liberal circles and try your arguments on them.

          • American Tax Payer

            How do you do that? They walk away. They won’t let you explain why they’re wrong. They won’t even take it upon themselves to look at non-partisan data.

          • listenupbub

            I mean he should pretend to be one of them and try to push them into doing these radical things that actually follow from their ideas, such as living in black communities.

            He should tell them that they are like “lukewarm Christians,” not really serious about their beliefs.

          • American Tax Payer

            Oh wow. I REALLY like that! You’re really good, ya know that? You’re too good to turn tail and run, I know that much so stop advocating for it.

            By the way, I’m gonna take your advice and instead of giving them facts, I’m gonna promote their ideas back onto them. Thanks for the idea!

          • listenupbub

            Haha thanks.

          • LHathaway

            There’s a place for satire and parody, and perhaps the more sophisticated irony, but only a small place, in my opinion. Some use it in desperation – the only way they are able to be understood. There’s room for the very odd satire character, when it’s obvious the person is using satire. I always assumed the guy here who always spoke as a Roman Centurian was a satire character (perhaps most didn’t think that) until he was eventually banned from the site. The more popular versions seem to be more the out and out lie, as you suggest, not just a moment of satire but an entire existence of satire – and not as an obvious joke but a lie. As a joke or something, or even on an odd occasion, OK. It’s just not me to lie. These comments are serious stuff!

            Of course we haven’t even discussed exaggeration.

          • LHathaway

            I will be banned after my first post.

          • listenupbub

            read my comment below, I clear it up.

          • LHathaway

            I think one of our founding fathers once proclaimed that Democracy will work so well because every side of each issue will be publicly debated out in the open. When no one is presenting their true opinion, as sometimes seems the case on the internet, all that can follow is madness?

      • listenupbub

        I should have mentioned that. Let them tax the heck out of themselves, too, to pay for the mamacitas’ six children.

    • newscomments70

      ten years ago my street was mostly white. Now all I hear is Spanish and Persian. These are not people who have been here for several years, these are all recent arrivals.

      • American Tax Payer

        Sell your house to a non-white and move to a white state.

        • newscomments70

          Very true, but they keep following us. What really bothers me is how they mess with my car when I go to the gym, mall, etc. This is a high priced area, and this is what happens.

          • American Tax Payer

            I live in a high priced area too but Agenda21 is here and a lot of non-whites are here.

            The high school here is 91% white but when you’re used to 100%, seeing even one non-white is culture shock. We have some crime and graffiti and trash in town but it’s not near as bad as I make it out to be. It’s not like it’s Philthadelphia but still…

            We’re moving to a State that is less white, poorer but much more racist.

          • newscomments70

            I don’t think anywhere is safe anymore. ah…”racist”. Racism is in this year; it’s the new normal.

          • American Tax Payer

            No, you can’t get away from non-whites entirely but you can change towns. I think I did pretty well here back when I used to go door to door leaving pamphlets in their door. I never left them on the ground. Always stuck them between the screen door and it’s frame. Where the door handle is so when they opened the door, the pamphlet would fall out in case they didn’t see it sticking out when they went to open the door.

            I’m moving because of my children. I can’t keep letting them die ’cause the newcomers use my street like their personal race track. Yes, they’re white and no, they don’t mean to murder my children but I can’t deal with it. I need a house on a dead end street. I’m just taking advantage and moving to an already established, “racist” place when we move.

    • American Tax Payer

      You were doing so good ’til you turned yella.

      Stop running! Yes, let’s “abandon” states anything less than 75% white and do what you said and the non-whites still living among us in those 75% states, will leave too. They’ll get the message.

      I gotta tell ya, just packing up and moving abroad is not that easy. That takes real money. Americans can afford to sell their houses and move to another State and “start over” but it’s damn near impossible to move to Europe and do that.

      You’re on the right track about moving out of non-white states. Stick with that.

      • listenupbub

        I’m thinking about it. My mind changed a bit when I went to the Wells Fargo Championship and I saw a 99% white crowd at an amazing white sporting event, even with many young people. Charlotte is becoming a white utopia. I am thinking there might be a chance we can take over places like this.

        • American Tax Payer

          Look, you’re smart and, if I’m not mistaken, young. You have the opportunity to make History in America and I think you should jump on that.

          You can take over whatever white majority place ya want with just facts. You will never win over all whites but you can get most of ’em. Enough to keep diversity out. Just in casual conversation, you have the ability to change minds.

          By the way, if some Americans want to move to Europe, I decided I have no problem with that so long as they migrate to a 75% or better white majority town. We have to cluster, win back parts and extend outward, eventually reclaiming it all, to use your words..

    If anyone has doubt that there is a concerted, orchestrated against Whites, just think about what’s behind a move like the one in this article.

  • Jason Lewis

    Well might as well give em welfare and food stamps as well. Oh yeah we already do that.

  • Ograf

    I hope we can get rid of some of the crap that Obama has put in place. I honestly think there were acts he committed that were worthy of impeachment. In any event he will be gone very soon. If the people vote for someone of his ilk the whole country is shot. Expect a 3d world hell hole.

      Obama is the rudder of a bigger movement.

    More immigrants mean lower wages and less secure jobs.

  • 4321realist

    Hispanic peons have been selected by the big money boys, and the greed uber alles bunch to replace blacks. That’s why they’re pushing amnesty with such gusto.

    And while Obama’s advisers are telling him amnesty will help genetically cleanse whitey out of the picture, he hasn’t a clue that the smiling Republicans and their big money supporters are hopping from foot to foot, and rubbing their hands together with glee at having a pool of peons to replace blacks.

    Obama’s legacy will be relegating the black population to a dysfunctional status via immigration, which means their incarceration rates will sky rocket.

    Years ago, on youtube, a hispanic made a remark, ‘we’re coming with bats, chains and knives’ and some American responded with, ‘just like a dumb his’spic to bring a knife to a gunfight’

    They really aren’t that bright. They have numbers but we have intelligence.

  • freedomkeeper

    We are under a regime. Obama was deceitful from the start, got elected twice, and now we are finding out how slick he is.
