  • Cruz: Rich Do Fine with Big Govt, GOP Must Help the Working Poor

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz on Saturday said that to resurrect America's greatness it was necessary to revive the economy, defend the Constitution, and restore America's place in the world arena. Appearing at the conference themed "America at Its Best," Cruz told more than 3,000 attendees to the Western Conservative Summit in Denver that "the single biggest lie" is that Republicans are the party of the rich. "The rich have done fine with big government," he said. The ones most hurt by big government are those who are struggling. The event, in its fifth year, is sponsored by the Centennial Institute,...

    Utah GOP Sen. Mike Lee is expected to try again on Thursday to pass his S.386 bill, which helps India’s graduates grab hundreds of thousands of college level jobs from American graduates. All GOP Senators are expected to stay silent while Lee pushes his bill that rewards roughly 300,000 of India’s contract workers in the United States with a fast track to citizenship. Silicon Valley investors back his bill, which also allows companies to annually pay 60,000 of India’s contract workers — plus 60,000 family members — with government-provided green cards after they take jobs from American graduates. Existing “country...

    Voters in one of the reddest states are unhappy with their two United States senators, for completely different reasons. Utahpolicy.com has asked, “Do you approve of the way xxx is handling his job?” about both Republican senators and found that both men are underwater. Here are the results for both expressed graphically: The patterns of dissatisfaction are completely different for the two men. - 50 percent of women like the job Romney is doing, but only 43 percent of men do. -- Lee is not a hit with women, only 36 percent approve of the job he’s doing, not...

    Utah's U.S. Senators are raising some disapproving eyebrows with those polled by UtahPolicy.com/Y2 Analytics. The new poll released Sunday shows Romney has a 46-51% approval rating (46% “strongly” or “somewhat” approve, while 51% “strongly” or “somewhat” disapprove), with 11 percent reporting they don’t know.

    A GOP Senator met with more than 100 Indian contract workers in Congress and publicly urged them to lobby U.S. Senators for passage of his legislation to give citizenship to more Indian workers who push middle-class Americans out of college-graduate jobs. Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) made the request on Thursday, shortly his fourth bid to pass his S.286 green-card giveaway bill. The bill was quickly blocked by an objection from a Democratic Senator — while the other 52 GOP Senators did not speak out. “We’re now down to one objector, just one,” Lee claimed, adding:

    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...

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...

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...

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...
