Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced legislation on Wednesday that will nearly double the annual employment-based immigration visas that are permissible under the law, bringing in even more foreign labor to squeeze U.S. workers out of jobs.
The Backlog Elimination, Legal Immigration, and Employment Visa Enhancement (BELIEVE) Act, proposed by Paul at the behest of the Koch-funded CATO Institute, would attempt to solve the problem of illegal immigration by legalizing corporate hiring practices of foreigners to devastate U.S. workers.
“A fourfold increase in employment-based permanent immigration would bring the United States more in line with the Canadian system,” said CATO Institute immigration policy analyst David Bier about Paul’s legislation.
Paul’s proposed legislation would increase the annual number of employment-based immigration visas from 140,000 to 270,000, ban all per-nation caps on employment-based immigration green cards, allow spouses and teenaged kids of immigrants with work visas to be exempt from the employment-based visa numbers, give employers the ability to more easily hire immigrants for jobs on the “Shortage Occupation” list of the U.S. Department of Labor, and allow the children of foreigners with temporary worker permits to stay in the U.S. after turning 21.
Paul’s legislation is an even more ambitiously globalist proposal than H.R. 1044, another Koch-backed bill that sailed through the House by an overwhelming 365-65 margin on Wednesday. That legislation will afford citizens of India a whopping 90 percent of the professional employment green cards granted by the U.S. moving forward.
The Kentucky Republican had previously blocked the Senate’s version of H.R. 1044, proposed by Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Kamala Harris (R-CA). Paul was seen as a hero for standing in the way of a bill that is reviled by pro-Trump conservatives and nationalists, but he apparently opposed it because he wanted the terms to be even more hospitable toward foreign labor.
Lee is another libertarian-leaning Republican who, like Paul, believes that protecting the opportunity for U.S.-born workers is “unfair” and “un-American.”
“In some cases, they can be stuck in a backlog of green card petitions for decades,” Lee said of foreign laborers.
“This is one of the many features of Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley-era immigration code that is outdated and needs to be cast into the dustbin of history,” Lee added.
“This undermines our ability to bring the best and brightest individuals to our country,” he said. “It’s to our harm and it’s to our own shame.”
With so many Republican lawmakers – even the individuals with the most conservative voting records – in the back pocket of the Chamber of Koch, it is likely a foregone conclusion that H.R. 1044, or Paul’s even more lax immigration bill, will be approved by the Senate.

Leaked Amazon Memo Shows How the Globalist Company Demonizes Their Own Workers
Bezos has been bad!
A leaked memo from Amazon showed how the company’s CEO Jeff Bezos attended a recent meeting in which Amazon executives plotted ways to demonize a top labor organizer.
Notes from the meeting indicate that the Amazon executives are plotting a campaign to destroy the reputation of former warehouse employee Christian Smalls, an organizer who has been trying to rally Amazon workers for better wages and more benefits. They said that Smalls was “not smart or articulate,” and they hoped to make him “the face of the entire union/organizing movement.”
“He’s not smart, or articulate, and to the extent the press wants to focus on us versus him, we will be in a much stronger PR position than simply explaining for the umpteenth time how we’re trying to protect workers,” wrote Amazon General Counsel David Zapolsky in meeting notes that were circulated throughout forwarded widely within the company.
This was apparently discussed during a daily meeting that was meant to be centered around coordinating a response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We go over the update on what’s happening around the world with our employees and with our customers and our businesses. We also spend a significant amount of time just brainstorming about what else we can do [about coronavirus],” Amazon SVP of Global Corporate Affairs Jay Carney said to describe the meeting while appearing on CNN.
But apparently their coronavirus meeting was diverted into plotting new ways to punish workers during the crisis. Amazon terminated Smalls last week after he led a protest at a Staten Island distribution facility in which several workers walked out on the job to send a message. Amazon is claiming that Smalls was fired for violating a mandatory 14-day quarantine after coming in contact with an employee who tested positive for coronavirus.
Smalls disputes the story that is being spread by Amazon about why he was fired. He is saying that his firing had nothing to do with alleged contact with an employee who tested positive for coronavirus. He claims he was fired because of concerns that he brought up with management regarding sanitation standards at the warehouse. Smalls also believes that Amazon is not being truthful about the number of workers who have been infected with coronavirus.
Other notes from the meeting lay out Amazon’s devious plan to target Smalls and make him the focal point of any response to public concerns regarding worker safety.
“We should spend the first part of our response strongly laying out the case for why the organizer’s conduct was immoral, unacceptable, and arguably illegal, in detail, and only then follow with our usual talking points about worker safety,” wrote Zapolsky in his notes from the meeting.
“Make him the most interesting part of the story, and if possible make him the face of the entire union/organizing movement,” he added.
Zapolsky attempted to rationalize his anti-worker sentiments in a groveling statement issued to VICE News after realizing his notes went public.
“I was frustrated and upset that an Amazon employee would endanger the health and safety of other Amazonians by repeatedly returning to the premises after having been warned to quarantine himself after exposure to virus Covid-19,” he said. “I let my emotions draft my words and get the better of me.”
Bezos’ brand of globalism does not put American workers first, and the coronavirus pandemic is seen by Amazon as just another excuse for the billionaire technocrat to put the squeeze on labor.
