  • Stephen Miller: H-1B visa bill won’t pass ‘anytime soon’

    Stephen Miller doesn’t think the new immigration bill addressing H-1B visas will be passed by the Senate “anytime soon.” “The administration has made clear that our view on [H-1B visas] is that you cannot displace or replace American workers,” the White House senior policy adviser told FOX Business’ Lou Dobbs Tuesday. “And the president has taken unprecedented action in the immigration space to do exactly that, including most recently with the public charge regulation to keep newcomers from taking advantage of our welfare system.” Senate bill 386, which is known as the “Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019,” would...

    An Indian-run company in Chicago illegally imported Indian graduates — and paid them Indian-level wages — to help snatch jobs from American graduates. The fraud exploited loopholes in the B1 visas, which are reserved for managers and trainees according to a press statement by the Department of Homeland Security. snip The bill, S.386, dangles the huge prize of valuable green-cards to millions of Indian graduates if they take middle-class jobs from college-graduate Americas. snip Lee S.386’s bill would offer up to 140,000 green cards each year — up from roughly 20,000 now — to Indian graduates who accept low wages...
  • Sen. Durbin Delays Green-Card Giveaway to India: He Wants a Bigger Giveaway

    Breitbart ^ | 26 Sep 2019 | NEIL MUNRO
    Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin has temporarily delayed Sen. Mike Lee’s green-card giveaway bill to Indian graduates because it does not give away enough green cards to foreign graduates from many countries. Durbin’s block sends Lee’s business-funded bill back into closed-door negotiations where business lobbyists will keep trying to redesign the nation’s immigration system. The lobbyists are seeking to boost their corporate revenues and profits by steering well-paid jobs away from expert American graduates and their college-graduate children. So far, no GOP or Democrat senator has spoken up to protect millions of American college-graduate voters from this joint effort by the...

    Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) now supports Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) green card giveaway bill, which will allow investors to reward many more Indian graduates for taking middle-class jobs from American college graduates. Perdue’s decision to end his opposition to the bill clears the way for Lee to rush his bill through the Senate on Thursday. If no other senators object, Lee’s bill will move through the Senate, putting it much closer to becoming law.

    Prior to 1990, there was a much clearer distinction between immigrant and non-immigrants under the law. However, when Congress enacted the Immigration Act of 1990, it made a total mess of the system. One path to chaos was to allow H-1B and L non-immigrants to apply for permanent residency. This was rationalized with the Orwellian concept of "dual intent", wherein a foreigner applying for a non-immigrant (i.e. temporary) visa could be considered to simultaneously intend to return home and intend to remain the U.S. This change had a number of entirely predictable effects. First, it transformed green cards into a...
  • Utah's Mike Lee: Architect Behind Anti-American Immigration Bill

    It's an appalling reality that in the entire U.S. Senate not one single member is willing to stand up for American workers. From appointed Arizona Republican Martha McSally to Vermont Independent Bernie Sanders, possibly the world's only avowed socialist who won't defend his nation's workers, none stood up against the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, S. 386, and its continuum of foreign national tech workers, mostly Indian. S. 386 would eliminate the 7 percent country cap provision that controls Green Card issuance to ensure that one country, or just a few countries, do not dominate the program. The current system...

    President Donald Trump did no longer endorse Utah Sen. Mike Lee’s inexperienced-cards-for-India bill when he spoke at the Sunday rally in Texas attended by 50,000 Indian supporters of India’s Top Minister Narendra Modi. Trump spoke at the Houston rally after a internal most invite from the visiting leader who heads the Hindu political celebration in India’s chaotically various democracy. Nonetheless Trump did no longer endorse, praise or even mention Lee’s Indians-before-People bill, even though Modi’s 50,000 supporters strongly give a boost to it, Modi’s executive is lobbying for the bill, and Lee is attempting to push it via the Senate...

    Fox Business host Lou Dobbs has gone after Utah Sen. Mike Lee for supporting a bill that would lift per-country gaps on permanent residency. The bill was ultimately blocked in the Senate. Dobbs described the bill as an “absolute dream” for outsourcers on “Lou Dobbs Tonight.” The bill's called the Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act. “It would remove green card limits on workers from other countries,” said Dobbs, “but what that means is big countries like India and China principally would overwhelm the H1B visa list, and guess what? They would be taking American jobs at lower pay, historically...

    Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee will try again to pass his S.386 bill, which grants green cards to India’s college graduates if they take jobs from American graduates. “I believe it’s ready for prime time,” Mike Lee said in a June 19 statement on the Senate floor, adding: It is ready to become law … I intend to be back next week making yet another attempt to pass this bill into law. And I hope and expect that we will be able to do so. Leon Fresco, a Democrat lawyer working with Lee to pass the bill, also declared the...

    [...] On Thursday, as Lee attempted to push through his and Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) S. 386 — legislation that would allow Indian nationals to effectively monopolize the U.S. green card system for at least ten years — Perdue blocked a vote because he is concerned about the impact the plan will have on rural healthcare industries. “I support this bill … we have some language that needs to be clarified,” Perdue said. “And I still have some concerns about the impact this legislation would have on some specific industries in my state and in the country.” Lee said he...

    Republican Senators Mike Lee and Mitt Romney have co-sponsored legislation that will prevent President Trump in the future of diverting federal funds to border wall construction. The two Republican senators name their bill the Article One Act and it will end all future emergency declarations made under the National Emergencies Act after 30 days unless Congress votes to extend them. Existing laws allow the president of the United States to reprogram existing appropriations for certain purposes. President Trump declared a national emergency Friday citing cartel violence, human trafficking and drug trafficking to access funds to build the border wall. So...

    Sen. Mike Lee received a visa to travel to Russia this week, according to his spokesman, after the Kremlin denied visas to several of his colleagues. Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, both members of the Foreign Relations Committee, said last week the Russian government refused to grant them visas. A spokesman for Lee said the Utah Republican will visit Russia Sept. 5-8 and meet with government officials and members of the business community, including outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman Jr. Lee plans to discuss “trade and military relations [and] religious...

    The chairman of the Senate antitrust subcommittee used to be one of Google’s chief Republican antagonists. What changed? When Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, appeared before the Senate antitrust subcommittee in September 2011, one of his toughest questioners was Sen. Mike Lee. “You've cooked it so that you're always third,” the Utah Republican snapped at Schmidt, pressing him about a Google price comparison tool that, the senator said, often yielded results that were good for Google. “Senator, I can assure you we have not cooked anything,” Schmidt retorted. It was the nearest the hearing had to a standout moment, and...

    Senators blocked an effort on Friday to restrict President Trump’s ability to go to war with Iran, handing a victory to Republicans and the White House. More than 40 have voted against the proposal from Democratic Sens. Tim Kaine (Va.) and Tom Udall (N.M.), which would block the president from using funding to carry out military action without congressional authorization. Though the vote remains open, the opposition blocks the proposal from getting the 60 yes votes it needed to be added as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). In a round of unusual procedural maneuvering, senators passed...

    The Senate voted to block President Trump’s Saudi arms deal on Thursday, paving the way for a veto clash with the White House. The Senate voted 53-45 on resolutions to block two of the sales, with GOP Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Mike Lee (Utah), Jerry Moran (Kansas), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Rand Paul (Ky.) and Todd Young (Ind.) joining Democrats. They voted 51-45 to block the additional 20 arms sales. Murkwoski flipped to vote for the sale, while Lee did not vote. The 22 arms sales, estimated to be worth more than $8 billion, would provide weapons to...

    A former aide to Sen. Maggie Hassan and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is headed to prison Wednesday for what prosecutors said was the largest known data theft in Senate history. The former aide, Jackson Cosko, pleaded guilty in April to crimes related to an unparalleled effort to ransack a Senate office, extorting a Democratic senator, illegally harming Republicans for their political views, and blackmailing a witness. Prosecutors asked for nearly five years in prison for Cosko, a onetime congressional IT aide to Hassan. Cosko admitted he stole the New Hampshire Democrat’s data out of revenge for being fired, then used...
