The topics of Immigration,national security,the economy and outsourcing go hand in hand when trying to better America. Simply by managing 2 imigration policies you can help improve all of the issues listed above. Major U.S. Companies are allowed to import cheap labor on L1/H1 Visa's when there is an American needing that job. American workers are being forced to train their cheaper replacement and then laid-off. A bettter managed L1/H1 Visa policy will help prevent outsourcing and produce more american jobs escpecially in the I.T. industry. By oustsourcing you are putting Americans personal information; credit, banking and health information in the hands of foreigners. How easy would it be for terrorists to get this information ? Would a non-American think twice about selling this information to the wrong person ? America needs to ammend the current imigration policies immediately in order to improve our current immigration, outsourcing, national security, and economy issues. There are many issues that effect our current economy including: The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and outsourcing! Please consider the information listed above and investigate accordingly. America is in the hands of Congress! Please notify your local representatives accordingly.

2008 year's total job loss = 2.6 million jobs
The unemployment rate rose to 7.2
Worse unemployement since the end of World War II

Job losses widespread
Job losses were spread across a wide variety of industries. Manufacturing lost 149,000 jobs, the leisure and hospitality industries cut 22,000 jobs, and the mining industry shed 1,000 positions.

Even in the midst of the holiday shopping season, retailers still slashed payrolls by 66,600 workers last month.

Professional and business services jobs, a category seen by some economists as a proxy for overall economic activity, dropped by 113,000. And financial services jobs fell by 14,000.

Only two of ten industry categories were hiring last month. Government hiring, which has stayed relatively strong throughout the downturn, added another 7,000 jobs in December. Education and health services also grew payrolls by 45,000 employees.

Construction employment shrank further by 101,000 jobs, and the rate of construction unemployment soared to 15.3% - by far the highest of any group.

"Today's jobs report ... is conclusive evidence that it is time to put people back to work building America," said Terry O'Sullivan, general president of the Laborers' International Union of North America. "Now it's time for Congress to move to create jobs with the same urgency as they did on the $700 billion Wall Street bailout."
