Utah Senator Mike Lee succeeded in passing legislation in the Senate that would eliminate per-country-caps on recipients of H-1B visas on Wednesday, a policy change that would effectively monopolize the visa system for nationals of large countries such as India.
The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act has been called the greatest corporate welfare program for Big Tech in recent memory. Lee has persistently sought to pass the corporate giveaway, with previous attempts to eliminate per-country-caps being blocked by Democrat Dick Durbin and Republican Rick Scott. Neither Senator objected to the unanimous passage of the modified S386 legislation on Wednesday afternoon.
Big Tech monopolies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft have fervently lobbied in favor of eliminating per-country caps, seeking to replace their American workforces with de facto indentured workers who accept lower wages and worse working conditions. The pervasive use of the H-1B visa in the American technology industry has displaced countless American workers from their careers.
Lee’s giveaway doesn’t specifically raise annual H-1B visa rates, although an increase in numbers of visa workers would be a likely consequence of its enactment. It’s expected that the program will be dominated by Indian nationals in the event that Lee’s HR1044/S386 is signed into law, providing massive corporations with a considerable labor pool willing to work for less in return for an American visa.
The legislation was most recently updated with a provision blocking Chinese nationals from using the H-1B program. This provision appears to have been instrumental in securing its passage through the Senate.

The Big Tech giveaway will now proceed to President Donald Trump’s desk, having previously passed in the House of Representatives. It will fall upon President Trump to veto the visa worker corporate welfare in the interests of American tech workers.
Stephen Miller: Biden Immigration Jailbreak Will Release 12,000 Criminals a Month into American Communities
Biden has sought to free everyone detained by ICE.
Former advisor to President Donald Trump Stephen Miller broke down the ramifications of President Biden’s immigration jailbreak executive order on Tucker Carlson Tonight Monday.
Biden has ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release nearly every illegal alien detained in its custody.
Miller pointed out that Biden’s jailbreak order was largely unprecedented in the history of American law enforcement. ICE primarily arrests convicted criminals with felony records, a demographic they’re now set loose into American communities at the behest of President Biden.
The Department of Homeland Security dialed back the jailbreak directive following Tucker Carlson’s reporting on the matter, but it’s unclear who they’re going to keep in detention and who will simply be set loose.
The jailbreak order made no exception for felons.

Biden’s immigration detention jailbreak order would essentially turn the federal government into a ‘sanctuary’ jurisdiction, with local and state law enforcement left with no means to transfer criminal aliens to the feds for deportation. Don’t even think about the federal government deporting anybody who hasn’t committed an additional crime- Biden administration guidelines forbid ICE from deporting anyone overstaying their visas, a demographic that makes up the majority of illegal aliens in the United States.
The elimination of immigration detention combined with powers of deportation represents no less than a wholesale embrace of the globalist open borders approach long favored by the American political elite.
Joe Biden’s attempt to suspend all deportations was halted by a federal judge on Tuesday in response to a lawsuit on the part of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, but it’s possible to amnesty provision could be re-implemented by the appeals courts or by Biden in the coming weeks.
