BIZ EXODUS THREATENS KANSAS CITY OVER LEGAL IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN!!!



Reps for local big biz and higher income international workers dispute Prez Trump policy for reasons that are more practical than political. It turns out the culture war was never more important than money in people's pockets and the bottom line for corporations.

Arguing the law is pointless because things change and even the sketchy Roger Stone is now a free man.

Similarly . . .

A LOCAL LAWYER ARGUES: KANSAS CITY CONFRONTS WIDESPREAD BIG BIZ EXODUS WITHOUT LEGAL IMMIGRATION!!!

Of course, big biz could pay more and hire Americans to do those same jobs whilst reducing reliance on migrant labor & H-1B workers but that could cut into profits . . . So its never going to happen. Instead, tele-work and outsourcing continues despite hopes for a MAGA turnaround.

Check the argument . . .

KC Biz Journal: As legal immigration craters, KC employers may move staff out of U.S.

Deets:

"Kansas City-area businesses that rely on immigrants to perform key roles face a crisis as a budget shortfall spurs plans for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to shut down.

"The USCIS already has issued furlough notices and plans to shut down operations within 30 days, unless Congress sends it about $1.1 billion. If USCIS shutters, it will be impossible for legal immigrants to get visas.

"That leaves local businesses weighing the few options they have left.

“If you have a key department 25% staffed with foreign nationals, you can’t just lose 25% of your workforce,” said Mira Mdivani, founder of Mdivani Corporate Immigration Law Firm in Overland Park. “That would destroy the business. So it’s just not an option to lose those workers. The options (companies) do have are to figure out if something can be done in the United States, and if not, where can we transfer them around the world and still retain them as part of the business?”

Meanwhile, biz owners contemplate the consequences of the "America First" agenda that might be incompatible with the global digital economy.

You decide . . .

TKC, you forgot the punchline.

There's no way that trump is going to tax companies who do this kind of thing. He can only bully them by using Twitter. Creating real legislation to stop outsourcing would be killed first by Republicans.

Maybe, still worth trying.

So much for the rule of law.

Der Fuhrer's deplorables are above the law.

The most corrupt President in history.

And this hard-hitting "news" coming from a corporate immigration law firm?
Surprising!
And shocking!

That's the real joke. Everybody has a stake in it. Trump was never going to do anything but tweet. He doesn't have any real power to change the system.

Brookside residents have no problem employing Mexicans for cheap wages as nannies, lawn care and building trades. Save that buck by getting the cheapest labor, then post that BLM sign in their front lawns. Mexican labor is modern slavery in a lot of cases. Wifey needs a new Volvo. Save some cash on carpentry expenses to get it. BTw- most are artsy liberals, not conservatives.

Ann Coulter said...

Mitch McConnell, senate majority leader of the REPUBLICANS, is spending $3 million dollars in ads calling a fellow Republican a "white supremacist" for opposing mass immigration.

PLEASE REPUBLICANS, VOTE AGAINST MCCONNELL AND NEVER GIVE HIM ANOTHER DIME.

#VoteKobach

The latest National Republican Senatorial Committee shows the MAGA candidate, Kris Kobach, beating the open borders candidate, Roger Marshall.

So Mitch McConnell zoomed in with millions in dollars of ads DEFAMING Kobach as a "white supremacist."

Too bad you're not talking about Trump. Sounds closet to Biden''s plan. WEIRD.

823 idiot 100s of miles of wall has been built exactly where the border patrol requested. Most replaced inferior and ineffective barriers anyone could simply step over or around.

You must watch a lot of msm and are brainwashed, misinformed and unable to think for yourself.

You people hate me because I live hundreds of miles from KC, yet I comment daily on your local posts.

Well, even though nobody else in the entire country gives a shit what I think or say, TKC understands I am a deep thinker and have valuable opinions.

You may think just because I am a liberal, progressive communist, my thoughts are not valid.

Tough shit you racist assholes! I can post here and you have to read my input!

bLIEron, do you mean the rule of law that says you don’t fake being disabled to secure disability welfare benefits the way YOU did?! Don’t criticize what you think is someone who is a lawbreaker (Trump isn’t) when you committed welfare fraud for years.

Let's let everyone into our country so the taxes on our paychecks can go up and help feed and shelter them and their families. I want my take-home pay to be cut in half.

How gullible must you be to think mass immigration benefits anyone besides the immigrant who takes your job, raises your rent n taxes and lowers your wages. Suckers.

Anonymous said...

You’re wrong, bLIEron. Tony hates you, too. He just pities you and let’s you hang out because your brother was our mayor. I know because I’ve asked him.
We hate you not because of where you live but because you defrauded our government and stole our tax dollars by pretending to be disabled. You were too lazy to work so you stole benefits. You’re despicable.
We don’t give a shit about your unoriginal and vapid posts. You’re as deep as stagnant water in a pothole and about as pleasant.

Trump pisses on my leg and tries to convince me it's raining.

I know he finds that personally entertaining, but I don't have to like it and ask for another round.
