True to his promise, Obama is going to change things. Like for instance, the Secretary of Labor will change from being a female born in Taiwan (Elaine Chao) to a radical Latina Congresswoman (D-CA) who was born in Los Angeles. [Calif. Congresswoman Solis Tapped to Head Labor]
Now let's look at what won't change. Both of them want to give amnesty to illegal aliens and both of them support increases in a broad range of guest worker visas like H-1B and green cards. Both of them are radical globalists.
I have spent a great deal of time searching to see if I could find a single instance when Hilda Solis said anything about H-1B. I haven't been able to but her voting record speaks for itself.
Solis gets a grade of F- from betterimmigration.com on immigration issues.
Solis co-authored the STRIVE Act of 2007 (H.R. 1645). This bill was one of the worst H-B expansion bills ever; fortunately it failed to get congressional approval. If Solis really had something to do with the STRIVE act it was probably the part of it that tried to increase the number of green cards or to fiddle with H-2B. Most likely Hilda Solis doesn't care about H-1B except that is of value as a quid pro quo to bargain for more immigration from Mexico.
One of Hilda's most infamous quotes was in 1996 when she was a California State Senator. She said that "WE ARE ALL AMERICANS WHETHER YOU ARE LEGALIZED OR NOT."
Some people are happy to have Hilda Solis on board. This statement by AFL-CIO president John Sweeney proves that unions are determined to commit self suicide:
"We're thrilled at the prospect of having Rep. Hilda Solis as our nation's next labor secretary." "We're confident that she will return to the labor department one of its core missions - - to defend workers' basic rights in our nation's workplaces."
It's very important to note that Sweeney thinks workers are all the same whether they are citizens or illegal aliens. He sees no distinction, especially if they pay union dues. In that regard, Sweeney and Solis are kindred souls.
There are others that are rejoicing that Solis will be running the labor department, such as the radical separatist group National Council of La Raza, which means "the race". Watch this video to hear Solis' outrage that illegal aliens don't get enough free health care and to hear her rants about the irresponsible xenophobic journalism of Lou Dobbs.
Thanks to Barack Obama, things in the labor department are going to change from bad to worse. That's a change to believe in.
