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“The per-country quotas on employment-based green cards should be repealed.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.
House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop
Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.
House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.
They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).
“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”
“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.
However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.
Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:
Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.
Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.
According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.
Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…
President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.
“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”
Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
