You know who “the real victims” of America’s poor economy and weak jobs market are? Not Americans. Muslims. Muslim Aliens from Saudi Arabia, according to the mainstream media. That’s the new narrative of the Obamaconomy, according to the Detroit Free Pressistan. It reminds me of the same crap we keep being told about how Muslims are “the real victims” of 9/11 rather than what they actually are–the real perpetrators. It also reminds me of the old joke in which G-d tells the world’s leaders he will destroy the world the following day. The Detroit Free Press headline would be, “World to end tomorrow. Muslims hardest hit.”
As Clint Eastwood noted in his very funny (and wrongly derided) empty chair routine at the Republican National Convention, one of the tragedies of the Obamaconomy is that 23 million Americans are unemployed. And, so, yesterday, as organized labor (which helped put a lot of those Americans out of jobs by making those jobs too costly) celebrated Labor Day in Detroit, the Detroit Free Press reminded us what Labor Day was all about: finding jobs for Saudi Arabian Muslims here on student visas, who should be going home, not taking jobs from American citizens. While tens of millions of American citizens are out of work, yesterday’s Detroit Free Press cover story gave us a sob story about Laith Alsunni, a college graduate who is still living in the Detroit area on a student visa, despite graduating college months ago. The Freep reported on a job fair and played a violin for Alsunni’s “plight.” Look at the ridiculous caption accompanying the photo from the hard copy of yesterday’s paper (both of which are strangely missing from the online version of the story).
As you read this absurdity, note that Mr. Alsunni’s LinkedIn account lists several positions of employment working on movies subsidized by the Michigan Film Tax Credit (which was put into place to generate jobs for Michigan citizens, not aliens). If he worked for pay, that’s generally a violation of student visa conditions, which prohibit working (because we don’t want aliens taking jobs from Americans). And Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be looking into it (but probably won’t under the Obama ICE).
Laith Alsunni said he needed to find a job in 25 days. If not, he’ll have to leave the U.S. under the terms of his visa.
The 26-year-old Saudi Arabian graduated from Lawrence Technological University in May. Information technology is his desired field.
“I’ve been looking for different jobs, I’ve been looking for a job for a year and a half,” said Alsunni, who lives in Southfield. “I’m kind of depressed.”
Awwww. So sad, too bad. Start packin’ Laith. Yalla. Aleikum Salaam. And don’t let the door hit ya on the way out.
Unfortunately, plenty of Mr. Alsunni’s fellow co-religionists in similar circumstances overstay their visas and never go home. And ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) never looks for or finds them, nor do we track them.
Let’s see if Alsunni actually leaves America when he’s supposed to.
While the article claimed that a weak jobs rate may be our “new normal,” the job market should always be weak for aliens from the extremist Muslim world.
It’s bad enough that far too many of them come here in droves to mine our education and technology. But when they’re done with classes, it’s time for them to leave.
