Should Americans have job preference over unskilled-illegal immigrants? President Obama doesn't think so

According to the Associated Press: "one of the more popular requests among business and family groups is a change in the way green cards are counted," which would "essentially free up some 800,000 additional visas the first year."
New polls are showing that Americans are tired of illegal immigrants getting benefits at the expense of citizens and legal immigrants.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Additionally, "other requests have included removing the requirement that some spouses of U.S. citizens return to their native country for at least three years before they can apply for U.S. residency, as well as extending work permits to the spouses of all temporary H1-B skilled workers."
Apparently, President Barack Obama is considering these changed, as well as granting work permits for low-skilled job industries.
Obama "has already increased the number of guest-worker permits by possibly 100,000 when it allowed the spouses of high-tech guest-workers who are applying for permanent residency to obtain permits."
Companies like Microsoft and Cisco have laid off massive amounts of American workers, while pushing Obama for more guest-worker visas, even while scholars and studies from organizations on the political left, right, and center debunked the myth that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers.
Obama's decision is aimed at appeasing big-business interests so they will support him in his potential executive amnesty of millions of illegal immigrants who are currently in the United States, or wish to come over soon.
All this will put pressure on the Americans at the bottom of the economic ladder, and make it increasingly more difficult for them to find decent paying jobs.
A poll from Reuters "found that 70% of Americans feel illegal immigrants threaten U.S. beliefs and customs, 63% believe more immigration at this time threatens the country's economy, and 45% want fewer immigrants."
Another recent poll, this one from The Polling Company found that 90% of likely voters feel that "U.S.-born workers and legal immigrants already here should get first preference for jobs."
Even the strong majority of people who favor a pathway to legalization and citizenship for illegal immigrants still believe that "jobs now held by illegal immigrants should go to American workers."
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) accused the Obama administration of "actively working against the interests of the American worker."
"We have communities throughout America that are barely scraping by. Tens of millions of Americans are on welfare, unemployment, and public assistance," he said. "Yet the White House and their Senate Majority seem more concerned about the economic demands of large corporations, or the citizens of other countries, than about getting our own citizens back to work into stable jobs that can support a family and uplift a community."
