As the Ranking Member of @JudiciaryGOP Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship, I thank my colleagues for supporting #HR1044. It’s time to eliminate the 7% “per-country” limit on employment-based immigrant visas so U.S. companies can fill knowledge gaps in certain fields. pic.twitter.com/KuKwpNwVY0— Congressman Ken Buck (@RepKenBuck) July 10, 2019
Republican Congressmen talk a big game when it comes to Big Tech Censorship of Conservatives, but in the end they do nothing except help Big Tech get cheap foreign labor. https://t.co/fVAun2SvRH— The Columbia Bugle ?? (@ColumbiaBugle) July 10, 2019

more bad news for @GOPLeader. the voters see what you did with #HR1044 and the astroturf campaign by foreign actors won’t bode well for your or your colleagues reelection. you sealed your fate. this is absolutely disgusting pic.twitter.com/M1GYKkEKeR— Grand Marshal Microchip™ (@MicroGMarshall) July 11, 2019
“Contrary to its name, The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act is anything but fair.” #HR1044 is backed by Google and tech to use Indian and Chinese workers and investors at the expense of Americans.https://t.co/EmugqCxHyV— Jack McQueen (@ChargeEVs) July 11, 2019
While you guys were focused on Jeffrey Epstein which doesn’t fucking matter, the @GOP with the help of @GOPLeader just gave away 40% of tech jobs to Indian workers by passing #HR1044. Pay attention. It’s headed to Senate and we need make our voices heard and see that it’s crushed— Grand Marshal Microchip™ (@MicroGMarshall) July 11, 2019
“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. …”
“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. …”
“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!
