And you know that employers,especially government and universities and corporations prefer foriegn workers even they can’t speak english ( except with an accent so thick you cannot understand them) or write because it fills their affirmative action quotas. Or because they need spanish speakers because all the illegals are applying for food stamps)The ones that are illegal just buy fake cards in Woodburn or Salem.
While nearly 3 million Americans lost their jobs in 2009, the federal government issued more than 1 million new Green Cards over the same period of time. According to a new DHS report, 1,130,818 new Green Cards were issued to legal immigrants last year – the highest single-year number since 2006 and the fourth highest in history.
Nearly 750,000 of the new Green Cards were issued to family members of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) has offered H.R.878, which would eliminate certain categories of the family sponsored visas and is also one of NumbersUSA’s 5 Great Bills. The bill would reduce the total number of extended family-based Green Cards by more than 100,000.
Residents from Mexico received the most Green Cards with 164,920 (14.6%). The next three biggest recipients came from Asia with China receiving 64,238, the Philippines receiving 60,029, and India receiving 57,304. Overall, Asia received the largest amount with more than 400,000.
