Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has always been a slithering political snake of the worse kind.
In the Washington Examiner, the sanctimonious Lee writes that, “People are always our greatest resource and should be our first priority. It’s social capital, embedded in our relationships, that can provide the best meaning, care, and support in people’s lives, at every stage of life. …”
Then he turns around, and, joined by Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), authors a Bill that’ll
allow investors and their companies to reward many more Indian graduates who agree to take the college graduate jobs needed by young American graduates. The reward is the grant of 120,000 invaluable green cards — up from roughly 20,000 today — to the Indian outsourcing workers and their families.
The so-called “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act” [every outlet reports a different Bill title] will be
a huge economic hit to the roughly 800,000 Americans who are graduating in 2019 with degrees in health care, science, engineering, accounting, business, software, math, or architecture.
The giveaway is in a House bill, HR.1044, and a matching Senate bill, S.368. Both bills end the country caps, provide fast-track green cards to roughly 300,000 Indian H-1B contract workers, and both expand the reward for more Indians to become contract workers in the United States — and neither bill offers any significant benefits to Trump’s agenda or Americans.
The liars in Congress give their Bill an Orwellian name: “Bill to Strengthen American Workforce, Reduce Visa Backlog for High-Skilled Immigrants.”
The Daily Caller calls the disenfranchising of American graduates a “big revamp”:
The proposed legislation has the chance to be the biggest revamp of America’s immigration system since the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, but is getting little if any attention from the press due to the impeachment drama currently unfolding on Capitol Hill.
