    Trade pact foes: Deal could cause flood of immigrants

    GOP leaders and White House officials are working to douse the latest threat to the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Opponents of giving the Obama administration broad authority to negotiate a trans-Pacific trade deal, including Republican senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, are pushing a new argument: It could trigger a flood of immigrants into the country.

    Sessions’ argument – essentially, that the administration could use the authority to expand immigration – was dismissed as an “urban legend” by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, whose panel oversees trade.

    But with extremely close votes expected in both the House and possibly the Senate on whether to grant President Barack Obama increased powers in trade talks, leading Republicans and members of the administration are taking the threat seriously and working overtime to debunk it, knowing the potency of the immigration issue among Republican voters and elected officials.

    GOP leaders will have to keep the vast majority of their members in support of the fast-track authority, while hoping that Obama is able to persuade between 20 and 40 House Democrats to join them. Last week, senior House lawmakers and aides warned that the legislation was in trouble.

    Ryan’s committee has issued fact sheets trying to disprove the immigration concerns. And House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) shipped out a “Dear Colleague” letterflatly stating that the proposed trade deal is “not an immigration giveaway.”

    Meanwhile, Senate Republicans used their latest weekly address, anchored by Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia, to bat away concerns that the Obama administration could sneak through immigration changes under the guise of a trade deal. Top GOP lawmakers, as well as Obama administration officials, have stressed to conservative skeptics that immigration isn’t involved in the trade fight.

    “There’s nothing in this bill that applies to immigration, and we’ve been assured by the administration that there will be nothing in any of the trade pacts that will involve immigration,” Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who steered the trade legislation through his panel, said in an interview Monday.

    Of those raising alarms about immigration in a trade deal, Hatch added: “That’s a false issue. If they don’t like the bill, that’s one thing, but to use that issue is just a false issue. We made sure it’s not in there.”

    In their push, Republicans who support trade promotion authority — which would give Obama the power to submit trade agreements to Congress with just up-or-down votes — are battling a veteran immigration reform opponent with a track record of stirring up conservative angst on the issue.

    That chief agitator is Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who is circulating letters and memos to lawmakers warning that the fast-track legislation pending before both chambers could allow for a tide of foreign workers with little congressional oversight.

    “There are numerous ways TPA could facilitate immigration increases above current law — and precious few ways anyone in Congress could stop its happening,” Sessions wrote in a memo circulated Sunday.

    He argues that language could be added to the TPP that is intended to bring more foreign workers into the United States. The fast-track legislation would give the president that authority for six years, so Sessions argued that future trade deals could also be ripe for immigration policy changes.

    Sessions alludes to past trade deals. In 2003, the Bush administration included temporary visas from Chile and Singapore in their respective trade pacts despite congressional opposition. The Alabama senator opposed granting President George W. Bush trade promotion authority in 2002.

    But in this latest round of trade deals, the Obama administration has told Congress that immigration is playing no role in the talks. In an April 22 letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman wrote that no TPP provisions will prompt changes in the nation’s immigration law or regulations — echoing his testimony before the Finance Committee earlier that month.

    “I … welcome the opportunity to clarify that the United States is not negotiating and will not agree to anything in TPP that would require any modification to U.S. immigration law or policy or any changes to the U.S. visa system,” Froman wrote to Grassley.

    With those assurances from Froman, Grassley said he decided not to offer an amendment during the Finance Committee’s markup of the fast-track bill that would have addressed those immigration concerns.

    He is open to doing so when the trade debate hits the Senate floor.

    And Sessions could also offer immigration-related amendments to the trade legislation. An aide said Sessions was considering several options for amendments, but declined to elaborate Monday.

    Although Sessions has been the most vocal Republican on Capitol Hill expressing concern over immigration in a trade deal, he isn’t alone. Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Pa.), another hard-liner on the issue, said he was leaning against granting Obama fast-track authority and cited a potential boost in temporary foreign workers as one of his concerns.

    “There’s a lot of fear that it’ll allow guest workers to come in and take jobs away from Americans,” Barletta said in an interview. “So there’s a lot of questions that the average American has on whether or not these deals are actually good for the American worker or not.”

    The perceived secrecy surrounding the proposed trade deal — a pending 12-country agreement that would amount to roughly 40 percent of the world’s economic output — hasn’t helped allay some conservatives’ concerns. Added Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), who is otherwise undecided on fast-track: “If there is any chance whatsoever of the Obama administration using any of these trade bills to increase this huge influx in foreign labor to the detriment of American citizens, I’m a ‘no’ vote.”

    Despite these concerns, the House Ways and Means Committee is convinced that immigration worries are limited to just a small circle of lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said immigration concerns in the trade deal have “come up very, very infrequently among members of Congress.”

    Away from Capitol Hill, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce also got in on the debunking game, issuing a blog post Monday that said Sessions’ immigration claim “just isn’t true.” Goodlatte — a veteran immigration attorney whose committee oversees the issue — also weighed in.

    “In the TPP negotiations, USTR has acted in good faith and has respected Congress’ constitutionally-granted power to write our nation’s immigration laws,” Goodlatte wrote to lawmakers last week.

    “In turn, we should support the TPP and trade promotion authority as a boon to the American economy.”

    Still, immigration is seeping into the trade fight in other ways. GOP resistance to granting Obama fast-track powers is another example of the collateral damage on Capitol Hill from the president’s controversial executive actions on immigration last fall, when he acted to defer deportations for more than 4 million immigrants in the United States illegally.

    Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) pointed to immigration as the “most obvious” way that — in Republicans’ view — Obama has abused his executive power.

    “I believe in free trade; I support free trade,” he said. “But the problem I have with fast track is that it gives this president tremendous power to negotiate things that I don’t trust with this president.”

    Still, other conservative lawmakers have dismissed such arguments from fellow Republicans and said the deep distrust of the Obama administration by GOP lawmakers shouldn’t preclude them giving Obama a freer hand during trade negotiations.

    “When it comes to giving this president power, I’m as nervous about it as anybody. But let’s be real,” said Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), who backs fast track. “There’s so much misinformation. Fast track actually sets parameters that we want the president to work under in order to negotiate. I think that’s our responsibility.”

    Well, 'scuse me again. Here is the rule, lie to me once, I must assume that you are untrustworthy. That leaves precious few employed by the federal government that I can rest faith in. A few that can rest assured that their day is over, McConnell, Ryan, Boehner, Hatch, Reid, Obama, McCain, ad infinitum. And the C of C will never be trusted (never was here). No TPP! No TPP and fast track is unnecessary. there, eliminated one argument/ lol

    Until most Americans recognize that we are under the spell of our Period of Ironies and Opposites, things will continue in a dangerous direction. But I still have faith in the American People, who just need the truth thrown at them as hard and fast as we can find it and get it out to them. We really need more help from the Media, but they've been bought up by the Public Relations Firms hired by the 501 C 3's to do the dirty work of those behind this travesty. They prepare fully written articles, proofed, with pictures and quotes from important people and organizations and it's so easy for the newspaper to just say, "thank you" and run it. Until we stop the money flowing into these 501 C 3 tax frauds to avoid income tax while still applying for and receiving grants from governments in the name of "charity", these tax frauds will continue to lead the pack of the Favored Voice, while we scramble to raise enough money to keep our lights on at ALIPAC every quarter.

    At some point soon, we're going to need a serious conversation about supporting the FairTax legislation. It restores privacy and liberty for our citizens, restores a fair playing field on trade for our businesses, treats 501 C 3's like any other business, provides our workers a strong comparative advantage over illegal aliens trying to undercut them, robustly funds Social Security and Medicare, abolishes the IRS, and stops all the paperwork, hassle and expense of the income tax.

    Why would any Republican be opposed to that? Why would any organization that wants to fix our country, stop illegal immigration and restore protected/fair trade policies in the United States not support it? Why would any American be opposed to it?

    It's something everyone needs to look into and think about, because what we have now is like a D Day without paratroopers.

    FairTax legislation is HR 25 in the US House of Representatives and S 155 in the US Senate.

    Judy. in large part I agree with your fair tax arguments. Even you say it will provide more of a fair break for citizens. I need to know who those citizens are that will be helped. IF it is the alien-Americans, I see no reason to exert energy for this. When we know that America has been preserved for Americans, then I can get excited about that. In other words, I'm thinking "First things first."

    If I'm wrong, I'm listening.
