Looks like one brave Senator came forward to stop unaimous consent on S.386 – the mass bill backed by India Inc which would give away millions of US green cards to Indians + Chinese first.
You can bet the Indian Mafia will be targetting the senator for influence next, especially http://www.rhcusa.com
We need fairness for American workers – since Silicon Valley is already 90% occupied by workers from India and China. Just what does India consider “fair”? 100% of all tech jobs? Since they already own most of them, the system is already more than fair to them. As Jessica Vaughn points out below, the system is already unfair to US workers as it displaces them.
USA has been more than fair to immigrants for over 20 years. Now it’s time to level the playing field for American workers.
“By Jessica M. Vaughan on September 18, 2019
Editor’s Note: Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) objected tounanimous consent, blocking HR1044/S386 from the Senate Floor.
According to advocacy groups representing the Big Tech employers and their guestworkers, the Senate will consider a bill on Thursday, September 19, that would dramatically change our system for awarding employment green cards in a way that rewards their business model — which has displaced U.S. workers on a grand scale. The bill is the Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act (S. 386), which is a companion bill that is very similar to H.R.1044, which passed in the House earlier this year”.
This bill is anything but fair to U.S. workers, because it strengthens and perpetuates a system that is actively displacing them. It offers a major concession to employers who have bypassed U.S. workers or decades, without reforming the system to reduce guestworker admissions or prevent employers from replacing U.S. workers. This is one reason that DHS issued a statement opposing the bill when the House considered it earlier this year”.
