The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act is unfair for American workers

Wage fixing is a federal crime. There are laws against it.

But all the big tech companies, the India Inc staffing companies, and all of their lobbyists are doing it.

They don’t wany any debate – that might allow Americans to see what is really going on.

They all just want to take their lobbying $, vote the bills in fast, hush everything up, and move on quickly.

Our Congress is bought + paid for.

“Republicans claim they want to put Americans first when it comes to immigration. So why are they backing another giveaway to Big Tech and foreign workers at the expense of American citizens?

Several Republican senators, including Mike Lee, Tom Cotton, and Kevin Cramer, have sponsored the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. The bill is being for a vote in the Senate by Unanimous Consent, which means skipping all debates. The bill is anything but fair. It would be another special privilege for Silicon Valley — allowing giant corporations to hire more foreign nationals instead of STEM graduates.

The bill would eliminate country caps on legal immigration, which prevent one nationality from monopolizing the allocation of Green Cards. The nationalities most likely to benefit are Indians and Chinese. ‘Indians account for more than 75 percent of all pending employment-based green card applications,’ says Vivek Tandon, founder and CEO of immigration firm EB5 BRICS. Technology services favor these foreign workers largely due to special relationships theyhave created with outsourcing and immigration placement services in the tech industry. The problem is not the national origin of the workers, but how Big Tech uses them to depress American wages“.
