Report: Disney IT Restructuring Favored Foreign Guest Workers Over Americans

Updated:  

Computerworld’s Patrick Thibodeau examined a restructuring of IT operations at Disney’s Parks and Resorts division last year and found the company replaced American workers with contractor-based guest workers. The laid-off workers he interviewed said Disney’s restructuring, which the company claims was meant to refocus resources on innovation, was motivated by cost cutting and unnecessary since there was no “skills gap” among existing workers.

Updated:  

Earlier this week, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) sent a letter to Pres. Obama calling for the end of the Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program.

The letter was signed by 37 other Members of Congress.

Congressional Research Service Links Mass Immigration to Wages

Updated:  

A new report from the Congressional Research Service links the increase in immigration in recent decades to the decline of the median income for the bottom 90% of income tax filers. The report, prepared for the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, shows that as the percentage of foreign-born residents declined between 1945 and the early-1970s, the median income for middle-class Americans increased. But after the foreign-born percentage began to increase after 1970, middle-class wages stagnated before plummeting after 2000.

Report: Surge Aliens' Crimes Fallout from Obama's Non-Deportation Policies

Updated:  

The Washington Times’ Stephan Dinan explored one product of President Obama’s decision to relocate and care for, rather than deport unaccompanied alien children that surged over the southern border. He found that some of the minors have been charged with serious crimes such as murder and aggravated rape – a harbinger of problems to come this year as DHS begins to handle another surge. This undermines Obama's "felons, not families" rationale for his November 2014 amnesties, which are now the subject of litigation in a Texas District court
