Obama Floods The U.S. Job Market With Foreign Competition

Politics: Skirting Congress once again, President Obama seeks to admit another 100,000 foreigners to work here when jobs are few and labor-market participation is low. Whatever this is, it's not in the interest of U.S. workers.
This time, the president isn't seeking to flood the country with tens of thousands of indigent, border-surging migrants in search of bigger benefits packages.
Instead, he plans to award via executive order work permits to 100,000 foreign college grads (including deportable aliens) to compete with U.S. workers for jobs.
Cui bono? Certainly not the U.S. workers he purports to champion.
Obama's Homeland Security rule, published in the Federal Register on Thursday, amounts to yet another illegal power grab by explicitly treading on Congress' constitutional prerogative to set immigration quotas.
It also comes at a time when 94 million U.S. workers have been unemployed so long they're no longer counted in labor-participation statistics. Some New Year's Day present for millions of discouraged Americans.
