A New Jersey IT staffing and consulting company has admitted to abusing the H-1B foreign labor program, and will have to repay almost $350,000 in restitution to workers under an agreement reached with federal prosecutors on Tuesday.
Savantis Solutions is a longtime H-1B ‘chopshop,’ offering services within the American technology industry with the use of cheaper immigrant labor. They’re one of many companies accused of damaging the employment prospects of American workers through foreign replacements, who have little to no traditional employment rights under the conditions of the H1B visa and have been compared to indentured workers.
In Hudson County, New Jersey, just north of where Savantis is quartered, the employment of Indian-born software developers appear to have played a critical role is displacing American workers from the technology industry in the area.
Court documents reveal that Savantis failed to pay their H1B workers the legally required wages from 2014 to 2018, and unlawfully required workers to pay security deposits as a condition of their employment.
A Department of Justice press release summarizes its settlement with Savantis, revealing that the Middlesex County company will have to pay a total of $345,365 plus interest to current and former employees of the company.
Savantis has also agreed to retain an outside law firm to audit the company’s practices, and their compliance with American immigration law and existing H1B rules and regulations.
The H1B visa has largely been put on ice during the coronavirus pandemic, but it couldn’t be any more obvious that this program is devastating to American workers, and exploitative to the foreign workers who are essentially bound to unethical companies with greedy business practices. It’s time to abolish the obsolete H1B visa.
Texas Republican Chairman Allen West Calls on Texans to Reject Democrats’ Radical Open Borders Agenda
No one in Texas should vote Democrat.
Since assuming the position of Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas earlier this year, retired Army Lieutenant Army Colonel Allen West has made his presence felt in Texas politics.
Unlike the flaccid political leadership that preceded him, West is outspoken about Democrats’ radical open borders agenda.
He tweeted on October 21, 2020, “No one in Texas should vote Democrat. It is the party of open borders, decriminalizing illegal border crossing, sanctuary cities for illegals, abolishing ICE, which allows criminal illegal immigrants, along w/human&sex trafficking, to operate freely.”

In his tweet, he shared a link to a Fox News article titled “Border Patrol arrests nearly 300 illegal immigrants in 18 hours.”
This story referred to an incident where U.S. Border Patrol agents in Texas teamed up with local law enforcement to arrest approximately 300 suspected illegal aliens during an 18-hour window last week, as reported by law enforcement.
Agents raided and closed down stash houses in addition to busting suspected smuggling attempts in four separate incidents that saw a total of 294 individuals apprehended for making an attempt to sneak into the U.S.
According to the law enforcement account of the situation, at least 90 of the people placed in custody came from countries outside of Mexico.
“In all of the incidents, none of the individuals were wearing any personal protective equipment,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recounted. “These callous and dangerous acts are several examples of the lack of regard human smugglers have for those they exploit for profit.”
The Texas GOP scored a big win by choosing Allen West as its leader. After years of disappointment on issues such as Constitutional Carry, the Texas GOP is in need of a major facelift when it comes to its political leadership. Thanks to how competitive Texas has become, the GOP must come on point during election season. This means that it must have its most energetic members on board from the start. And it could do so by having a leader that talks about hot button issues such as guns and putting the clamps on mass migration.
