    Mike Lee to Seek Senate Approval of S.386 Outsourcing Bill by ‘Unanimous Consent’

    Mike Lee to Seek Senate Approval of S.386 Outsourcing Bill by ‘Unanimous Consent’

    by NEIL MUNRO 2 Dec 2020

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) is expected to seek Senate passage of his S.386 job-outsourcing bill Wednesday evening.

    If no Republican or Democrat objects to Lee’s actions, his bill will pass the Senate by so-called “Unanimous Consent,” (UC), setting the stage for a joint House-Senate conference to draft a final bill.

    Lee’s aggressive effort to pass the bill by UC is a threat to the GOP Senators and their slim majority, an immigration activist told Breitbart News.

    “They have to give Georgia Republicans a reason to vote [in January] — and UC for this bill ain’t that,” the activist said.

    Lee is trying to pass the bill after Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) dropped his opposition to the legislation.

    Activists hope that Georgia Senators Kelly Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue will announce opposition to the bill — although Lee’s surprise move caught them while they are campaigning in Georgia. In August, Loeffler praised President Donald Trump for adopting reforms of the H-1B program.

    Senator Kelly Loeffler
    @SenatorLoeffler

    Thank you @realDonaldTrump for your work to protect American workers and put a stop to the H-1B system abuse. This order is all the more important as we work to reignite the economy and ensure America comes back from this pandemic stronger than ever before. #HireAmerican

    @SecGeneScalia

    .@POTUS signed an Executive Order today that takes steps to prevent American workers from being displaced by foreign workers. Ending fraud and abuse of the H-1B system and protecting American workers are top priorities of @USDOL and the Administration. #HireAmerican

    Lee’s bill would remove the so-called country caps on employers’ award of green cards to their foreign workers. The change would allow hundreds of thousands of Indian visa workers to jump to the front of the line, bypassing would-be immigrants from various other countries, including the Philippines and Costa Rica.

    The bill would also encourage huge numbers of new Indian graduates to take future low-wage jobs in the United States. Those jobs would allow them to compete for one of the 85,000 H-1B visas awarded to companies each year — and then convert the H-1Bs into green cards and then into renewable “green card lite” work permits. There is no limit to the number of foreign graduates who can get jobs via the universities’ Optional Practical Training and Curricular Practical Training work-permit programs.

    The huge inflow of foreign workers allows U.S. investors and CEOs to corral competition in the tech sector by minimizing the recruitment, training, and promotion of the U.S. graduates who may later quit to develop rival products. That labor policy has already damaged the nation’s technology leadership, insiders tell Breitbart News.

    “There’s collusion within these big tech companies to preserve their monopoly status,” said Kevin Lynn, founder of U.S. Tech Workers, who campaign against the flood of foreign graduates. “The best way to do that is to block the sneakernet, you know, one person going from one company to another taking what’s between their ears with them. So that’s why this is important — it allows them to maintain their group of compliant indentured [foreign] workers, and also prevents the movement of workers from one company to another, or workers deciding to form their own companies.”

    The huge inflow of foreign workers is driving down wages for many American graduates, in part, because the inflow forces American tech grads to seek work in other sectors of the economy. From 2016 to 2019, the median or midpoint income of college graduates fell by two percent, according to a September report by the federal reserve.

    The vast majority of voters oppose laws that allow companies to import low-wage foreigners for jobs needed by Americans.

    #BreakingNews #HR1044 #S386 The Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act passes the Senate.


    Dear Friends,

    Senator Mike Lee just passed The Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act through the Senate by Unanimous Consent!

    The version that passed has two major changes pertinent to us:



    1. In years 1-9 after implementation, no more than 70% of the Green Cards can go to H1 visa holders & their dependents.
    2. Year 10 onwards, no more than 50% of the Green Cards can go to H1 visa holders & their dependents.

    You can find the last draft we have here. While not everything that we wanted, it will still clear the existing backlog a lot sooner than the present miserablesituation, where according to David Bier from the CATO Institute, "Indian employer-sponsored applicants face an 8-decade wait for green cards, and nearly 200,000 will die before they could even theoretically reach the front of the line."

    After working on this bill for over a decade, you can take it from us that the bill is a great and hard-fought first-step towards a fairer more equitable immigration system. Even though the bill has passed the Senate, we still have some way to go, the Senate version is significantly different from the House version, the differences must be reconciled, the reconciled version must pass both Chambers of Congress again, and finally, the bill must be sent to the President’s desk.

    In order to get where we are today, our biggest obstacle has been a syndicate of powerful and deep-pocketed immigration lawyers and staffing companies, who are determined to maximize their revenue per-human being who immigrates into the United States. They didn’t care that our children were being thrown out at the age of 21 or those entire families were self-deporting upon the death of the family breadwinner.

    To stop or slow down our bill, these groups will now throw the kitchen sink at Congress. We now are in the fight of our lives. In order to get our bill done - in-spite of these forces, we believe we will need to hire the services of some specialist consultants, to advise us on how to navigate key offices to get things moving in the short time we have.

    We, therefore, request you to please contribute to this most important fundraiser at this critical time. Please contribute generously for your and your own families' sake.

    The proposition is simple, the more money we raise, the better the odds are of our bill passing.

    The GOP tried to block Trump from: building the wall, stopping mass illegal immigration & amnesty, regulating Big Tech & putting tariffs on China.Today, GOP Senate passed: unlimited guest worker bill so China/India will get U.S. tech jobs. The GOP wants to lose Georgia.
