Congressional GOP Sells Out to Chamber of Koch, ‘America Last’ Immigration Bill Passes House Overwhelmingly

The vast majority of Congressional Republicans voted to sell America out to globalism.

Congressional Republicans voted today in favor of H.R. 1044, legislation that would vastly expand the ability of multinational corporations to exploit cheap labor from India and squeeze U.S. workers out of well-paying jobs.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019 will assist Big Tech and foreign outsourcing companies that have imported immigrants from India by the hundreds of thousands with temporary visas. H.R. 1044 will make it so citizens of India are afforded a whopping 90 percent of the professional employment green cards moving forward.

This helps firms that have abused the temporary green card system and over-flooded the rolls to maximize their profits, as their predatory hiring practices will be kept afloat by this measure. H.R. 1044 will also enable foreign investors to more easily obtain green cards, allowing more rich Chinese investors to become U.S. citizens, which may undermine President Trump’s ongoing trade war with the nation as well.

Only 57 Congressional Republicans voted against the measure while the other 140 Republicans serving in the House voted in favor of it. It passed by an overwhelming 365-65 margin on Wednesday.

One of the main contributing factors behind Congressional Republicans selling out President Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda is lobbying influence from two of the most influential globalist entities exerting control over the GOP: the Koch Brothers’ network and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Daniel Griswold, who works as director of trade and immigration issues at the Koch-bankrolled Mercatus Center in Arlington, VA, testified before the House Committee on Small Business in May to urge legislators to open the flood gates for more foreign labor.

“The per-country quotas on employment-based green cards should be repealed. The quotas discriminate against immigrants based solely on their place of birth. They deny legal permanent resident status to well-qualified candidates who have already proven their value to their employers, the U.S. economy and society,” Griswold said.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued a national press release early on Wednesday urging for H.R. 1044 to be passed.

“These quotas cause a significant amount of uncertainty for employers that hire highly-skilled, highly-educated immigrant workers that were born in India and China. Oftentimes, workers from these two countries wait for years, and in many cases, decades, to receive their green cards,” said Neil Bradley, the executive vice president and chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“During that period of time, these arbitrary caps on visa issuance hamstring the ability of employers to promote their immigrant workers to new roles within their companies. This policy is neither fair nor wise; eliminating these caps would provide much needed relief for companies and their workers,” Bradley added.

As usual, the Koch Brothers and the Chamber of Commerce got their wish. The ‘America Last’ immigration bill was passed in the House, and Trump’s economic boom is threatened as a result. H.R. 1044 will have to pass the GOP-controlled Senate next, where the Chamber of Koch will continue to use its lobbying power to push Republican lawmakers toward globalism.
