The nation’s biggest tech corporations joined forces with the United States Chamber of Commerce and the outsourcing industry to keep foreign visa-holders in American jobs even as about 16.4 million Americans remain jobless.
Executives with Google, Amazon, Apple, IBM, HP, the Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, the Microsoft Corporation, Twitter, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us, Michael Bloomberg’s New American Economy, and other corporations have filed an amicus brief in a lawsuit to ask a federal court to keep more than 90,000 foreign visa-holders in the U.S. workforce.
The lawsuit was first filed in 2015 by Save Jobs USA, a group of former American workers at Southern California Edison who had their jobs outsourced to foreign visa workers, to block the Obama administration from giving work permits to H-4 visa-holders who are the spouses of H-1B visa workers.
The outsourced American workers argue that the executive action by Obama wrongly gives the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the authority to provide work permits to tens of thousands of H-4 visa holders. Congress, they argue, did not authorize such authority to DHS and thus, the agency does not have the authority to provide the work permits.
“There is no statutory authorization for an alien possessing an H-4 visa to work,” Save Jobs USA’s initial complaint states.
Today, close to 100,000 foreign spouses of H-1B visa-holders have American jobs in the U.S. labor market thanks to the H-4 visa work permit authorization that the Obama administration began. That has been continued throughout the Trump and Biden administrations.
The cheap foreign labor pipeline, Save Jobs USA argues, unjustly increases foreign labor market competition against America’s white-collar workforce who are forced to compete for jobs against such visa-holders. [...]

And they own Congress.
Big Tech and the Chamber of Commerce are our enemies, do not forget that.
Bush League Republicans have been importing workers for the jobs that can’t be exported for them since 1989.
Amen! They care nothing for America or Americans.
What’s funny is the Big Steal was orchestrated by Big Labor operatives, which has to be mind boggling to the saps who think they represent them.
Trump and the Gope are just as mediocre on cheap labor.
Ivanka and Jared pushed Daca and Syrian Mussie invader programs and then dragged the Koch Bros in for meetings .
Trump did not veto Mike Lees Indian labor invasion bill.
He caved on it at Xmas .
I support Desantis now for President..
I am not interested in 4 more years of Manhattan libs Jared and Ivanka amnesty and prison reform games .
Very true. I am one of the few, few white workers in my area of technical focus. Tragic for young Americans.
If a visa worker has skills that can’t be found in America, that visa worker should be able to command an income to keep a stay-at-home spouse in style.
Each employer of a visa holder under Sections whatever shall pay said visa holder enough to keep a potential/actual spouse and all their minor age children in style.
....reasonable attorney’s fees shall be awarded....
“Trump did not veto Mike Lees Indian labor invasion bill.”
But he toughened the standards and made it very difficult to obtain and renew H1B’s, essentially neutralizing Lee’s bill. And he was far better on immigration then the clown who now occupies the Whitehouse.
Unfortunately our young adults have shrunken brains and shrunken attention spans.
The China / VJ puppet has openly committed treason buying Iran oil .
Where are the Goo and trump demanding impeachment?
Cheap Labor Express - bump for later....
“Unfortunately our young adults have shrunken brains and shrunken attention spans.”
There are millions of older under- or unemployed STEM-trained American workers.
The worthless, useless Chamber did nothing to help their members who were forced out of business by the Covid lockdowns. A longtime Chamber member in Columbus, OH called the Chamber asking for legal help after his business was cited by the Ohio Health Department Gestapo.
The Chamber told the business owner they couldn’t help him, but made sure he received his 2021 dues notice.
Most Freepers don’t care about American workers losing their careers to foreign indentured servant scabs. But if you talk about raising the minimum wage and then they go bat sh1t crazy over that...
You are so FOS. Yes, another example of a GOPer trashing American workers once again showing us how to make a majority populist party.../sarc
You have children?
Fellow travelers and Comintern acolytes doing their communist leader’s bidding...
There is only one solution to this disaster...
Pray for Apophis...
