    TPP trade deals with Asian countries would increase immigration to the US: Sen. Jeff

    TPP trade deals with Asian countries would increase immigration to the US: Sen. Jeff Sessions

    May 4, 2015

    Would result in Americans losing jobs to foreigners, warns Sessions.

    By Raif Karerat



    WASHINGTON, DC: Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama is sounding the alarm concerning the perceived dangers of voting to implement the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), an executive branch agency that would set up Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deals with Asian countries.


    According to Alabama outlet Yellowhammer News, approving the agency would enable the president to side-step Congress when creating trade agreements.


    “Congress has the responsibility to ensure that any international trade agreement entered into by the United States must serve the national interest, not merely the interests of those crafting the proposal in secret,” Sessions’ team writes in a document that lays out the top five concerns with the Obama trade deal. “It must improve the quality of life, the earnings, and the per-capita wealth of everyday working Americans. The sustained long-term loss of middle class jobs and incomes should compel all lawmakers to apply added scrutiny to a ‘fast-track’ procedure wherein Congress would yield its legislative powers and allow the White House to implement one of largest global financial agreements in our history—comprising at least 12 nations and nearly 40 percent of the world’s GDP.”


    Session’s first point details how enacting the TPA would result in a “consolidation of power in the executive branch.”


    The second major point the Senator makes is that that establishing the TPA would result in “increased trade deficits.”


    The third major point of Sessions’ “critical alert” document lays out how passing TPA, and then TPP, means the United States is effectively “ceding sovereign authority to international powers.”


    The fourth major point of Sessions’ declaration notes how TPA and the TPP deal it would expedite do not address currency manipulation at all.


    “The biggest open secret in the international market is that other countries are devaluing their currencies to artificially lower the price of their exports while artificially raising the price of our exports to them. The result has been a massive bleeding of domestic manufacturing wealth. In fact, currency manipulation can easily dwarf tariffs in its economic impact,” Sessions wrote.


    Sessions’ final primary point of contention is that the TPA “could facilitate immigration increases above current law” while leaving Congress “powerless to stop it.”


    “Thus, at any point during the 6-year life of TPA,” Sessions wrote, “the Administration could send Congress a trade deal — or issue an executive action subsequent to a trade deal as part of its implementation — that increased foreign worker entry into the U.S., all while claiming it has never changed immigration law.


    Sessions concluded his discourse by urging his peers in the U.S. Senate to “slow down,” and make careful consideration of the implications of giving President Obama, and future presidents from either party, more ways to circumvent the legislative body.


    “Our government must defend the legitimate interests of American workers and American manufacturing on the world stage,” said Sessions, according to Breitbart. “The time when this nation can suffer the loss of a single job as a result of a poor trade agreement is over.”

    Yes, absolutely. It will result in enormous trade deficits due to the number of countries that this agreement involves, all wanting to push their products into the US and suck our money out.

    Sessions’ final primary point of contention is that the TPA “could facilitate immigration increases above current law” while leaving Congress “powerless to stop it.”

    “Thus, at any point during the 6-year life of TPA,” Sessions wrote, “the Administration could send Congress a trade deal — or issue an executive action subsequent to a trade deal as part of its implementation — that increased foreign worker entry into the U.S., all while claiming it has never changed immigration law.
    Absolutely correct! So they can push their surplus labor and population into the US and suck our money out through immigrant remittances sent back to their home countries.

    If there is anyone I trust in the U.S. Congress, it's Sen. Sessions.

    Sure there are some others, however, Sessions like a fine cream has risen to the top. Basically, what I'm saying is, I trust him above all others.
