House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who advertised himself as an ‘America First’ ally of President Trump to gain a Congressional leadership position, sold out American workers by supporting Democratic-proposed legislation to subsidize the outsourcing spree of Big Tech and other hostile multinational corporations.
The legislation, H.R. 1044, passed by an overwhelming 365-65 margin on Wednesday with incredible bipartisan support, as globalists from both sides of the aisle moved the bill forward to make it easier for American workers to be replaced by low-income immigrants from India.
Think there’s no room for bipartisan agreement on immigration? @ZoeLofgren and @RepKenBuck’s bill to end per-country caps for employment visas (i.e. reduce the backlogs) passed 365-65 today. Was never called for a vote last Congress.

The Senate version of the legislation is championed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the venomously anti-Trump lawmaker who is running on a platform of racial animus in the hopes of attaining the Presidency in 2020.
“Ours is a nation of immigrants, and our strength has always come from our diversity and our unity,” Harris said of her legislation in a press release. “We must do more to eliminate discriminatory backlogs and facilitate family unity so that high-skilled immigrants are not vulnerable to exploitation and can stay in the U.S. and continue to contribute to the economy.”
There is a large contingent of bipartisan senators who have already coalesced behind the legislation. They include the bill’s primary co-sponsor, libertarian-leaning Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), as well as Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Jim Moran (R-KS), Tom Carper (D-DE), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Susan Collins (R-ME), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), and Krysten Sinema (D-AZ).
McCarthy and 139 other House Republicans capitulated to special interests to pass H.R. 1044. The measure is backed by powerful trade associations, activist organizations, and think-tank groups including La Raza, The Heritage Foundation, Google, Immigration Voice, the Information Technology Industry Council, Compete America Coalition, Microsoft and many more.

Fox News host Sean Hannity blistered the legislation during an edition of his radio show on July 9.
“I do believe in merit-based immigration, but I don’t think this is the bill, though, because it would reward employers who literally replace American workers potentially with hundreds of thousands of low cost, less skilled workers who are entering on temporary visas, mainly H-1Bs, often working the tech sector,” Hannity said.
McCarthy lacked the backbone to stand with President Trump’s ‘America First’ mandate against this legislation to punish American workers. It will now go to the Senate for consideration, where Republican leaders in that chamber will have another chance to stand up to the lobbyists and power-brokers and stop this outsourcing bill.
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
