House Republicans Deliver Cheap Labor For Google

Deseret News:

“SALT LAKE CITY — A long-running cap on employment-based green cards — one that sets the same annual maximums on immigrants from tiny Iceland as it does for those from India, a country almost 4,200 times larger — would be eliminated under a proposal passed with bipartisan support by the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday.

Rep. Ben McAdams, D-Utah, said the move was a win, particularly for a state like Utah with a burgeoning tech industry that is in a near-constant state of need when it comes to highly skilled employees.

“I think this is an important step for Utah,” McAdams said. “We have a strong and growing tech community in Utah and we need workers. Business priorities should be on hiring Americans.

“But if they can’t find Americans to fill those jobs, it’s good for our economy and Utah businesses to have skilled immigrants here and allow them to immigrate, work legally and pay taxes.”

All four of the state’s U.S. House representatives co-sponsored HR1044, the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, which passed on a vote of 365-65 Wednesday afternoon. A Senate version of the bill, which Utah GOP Sen. Mike Lee sponsors and has been championing for years, has been stalled out but may get a boost from the widespread support the House version garnered. …”

Breitbart:

“On Wednesday, 140 House Republicans, 224 House Democrats, and Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) — led by Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) — voted to allow Indian nationals to effectively monopolize the U.S. green card system for at least ten years, providing a constant stream of foreign workers that American professionals will be forced to compete against for white-collar jobs. …”

Breitbart:

“GOP legislators (140) voted for a bill drafted by business groups and Democrats which provides a green card giveaway to 300,000 Indian contract workers and dramatically increases the incentives for more Indian graduates to take college graduate jobs in the United States.

The 365- to-65 vote means the bill moves to the Senate, where GOP Senators are pushing a matching giveaway bill which is backed by Democrat Senator and presidential hopeful, Sen. Kamala Harris. Only 57 of 197 GOP legislators — and only eight Democrats — present voted against the giveaway. 

The GOP’s House leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, voted for the giveaway to Indian outsourcing workers. 

The bill also helps U.S. real-estate investors by extending the green-card giveaway to the Chinese leaders who use the EB-5 program to buy green cards for their families.  …”

The Republican Party is a scam.

I’ve been saying it for years now on this website. This is why I refused to go along with the crowd and vote to reelect my Republican congressman in the 2018 midterms.

Rep. Martha Roby and 2 out of 3 House Republicans voted with all but 8 Democrats for this bill this afternoon. This is textbook case of how the GOP harvests populist votes by giving lip service to populist grievances only to channel all that energy into tax cuts, deregulation, open borders, cheap labor programs for big business, stupid wars in the Middle East and giveaways to Israel.

We’re standing up to Big Tech, folks, BELIEVE ME!

  1. Luckily, this won’t increase the total immigrant pool (I think), but definitely came from the kingdom of dumb ideas. All future investor visas will go to Chinese. The immigrant ethnic blocs in our country will become more powerful. All future high-skilled visas will go to Indians. It is a very sad and undesirable situation.

    Ofc the two libertarians all support it; they don’t “see race”.

    I think any sensible person will see we already have too many Indian “high-skilled” (both really and not really) immigrants here.

    Roby is the most left-wing of the AL GOP (though she still shares the characteristics unique to it); she is a very boring individual; you were right not to vote for her.

    I don’t think H1Bs hurt tech employment -studies don’t seem to show it- but this bill is definitely a bad and deeply undesirable measure. The problem is more that Indian H1Bs are truly annoying to deal with.

    There is some overlap between complaining about big tech censorship and voting against this bill, though. Gosar, the alt-lite rep, cared deeply about both. Mark Green and Louie Gohmert also voted against it, as did (interestingly enough, since he is very GOP establishment almost all the time) Steve Scalise.

      “I don’t think H1Bs hurt tech employment -studies don’t seem to show it- but this bill is definitely a bad and deeply undesirable measure.”

      I’m thinking that you’re being facetious / sarcastic or else a Troll. There are boundless stories of tech people who had to train their Indian replacements or lose their severance – Consolidated Edison in California, Disney World, etc.

  2. Hm; Liz Cheney voted against it. Not sure why; strange move. I doubt it’s for Senate prospects; Byrne calculated the conservative base doesn’t care (and I suspect he’s been strategically manipulating his votes to move to the right of Palmer).

  3. Republicans are the real democrats , god i hate conservatives almost as much as antifa does now how ironic is that lol

    “They are now the Socialist Democratic Party.” McCarthy comes across as an idiot with this crap. He’s a member of the Corporate Socialist Republican Party. I hope he’s “primariled” next year.

    “Fill knowledge gaps in certain fields”.. LOL. I thought that’s what all those non-White spawn clogging our elementary schools were for?

    There really is no reason to vote.

  7. When it comes to ‘tax cuts’ and ‘deregulation’, what do you mean by these terms?

    I have no love for corporate America but I do believe corporate tax rates need to be competitive relative to other countries. The tax cuts under Trump did help small businesses. If you live in a state without an income tax like Texas you came out ahead as an individual.

    There are way too many regulations. Yes, you need environmental ones to protect natural resources and private property, but they also have to make sense in terms of compliance and cost. Ditto for a number of other areas. Regulations really damaged the car industry over the last three decades.

    This immigration/greencard bill definitely sucks for Americans.

    I’m for bringing back drawing and quartering for traitors. Disinvest them first so their families cannot benefit from White Genocide.

  9. The Republicans and “Conservatives” are just scumbags, plain and simple. At least the Democrats are brazen with their hatred of White people and pro-Communist positions, they are proud of what they believe in. They don’t do the bait and switch thing like the Republicans, the Democrats are on the same page as their loathsome voters.

    The only two real issues DJT can campaign on next year are: 1.) The Democrats are worse, 2.) The economy is great. The first is true but is unlikely to be sufficient. The Democrats are always worse but they still win about half the time. The preventable Third World demographic shift in places like FLA, TEX, GA, and AZ makes a Republican victory much more difficult than 2016.

    The economy is just middling, not great except for the Republicans’ pals at the top who are roundly despised, especially by many of DJT’s voters. The “great economy” really means the great stock market which doesn’t help white people working two jobs getting laid off so Indians can take their place. Life is still getting more difficult for decent white people, not easier.

    The U.S. is one stock market crash or one war in the M.E. from disaster. The financial condition of the government is perilous because of enormous debts. Corporate America’s financial position isn’t much better and neither is most white people’s financial situation. The stock market is a ponzi scheme always requiring new money just to stay even and cannot tolerate higher interest rates.

    A war would be devastating for the M.E. as well as for the U.S. Nothing will wreck the financial system and crash the stock market more quickly than $250 USD/barrel oil and another increase in government spending. Add to that terrorism from Moslems in the country and the diverse/multicultural/homo military becoming depleted quickly requiring conscription and you have a witch’s brew of trouble.

    Perhaps worse is better and that is the only way of fixing the U.S. if this country can even be fixed. It seems unlikely DJT can thread the needle until 2020 but we shall see.

    There is no political solution. Embrace the collapse. Accelerate.
