1 million jobs taken from American citizens and given to aliens ( people here on work visas) thanks to the Obama Admin. This jobs first act should focus on getting Obama to change his policies and put citizens first.

The claim is that most were here illegally. Gotta keep the talking points pointy!

JH - The H1B and L1 visas program was not started under Obama and will not end under Obama. Corporations are the ones to blame for the proliferation of these visas, and their powerful lobbyists.
