Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), aided by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and his Big Tech funders, has been championing legislation that would open up the flood gates to third-world immigrants, primarily from India, to receive green cards and take jobs from American-born workers.
While S. 386 stalled last week after it was blocked by Sen. David Purdue (R-GA), Purdue has since folded and the legislation is now expected to pass through the Senate with unanimous consent on Thursday.
Georgia Sen. David Perdue says he no longer objects to Sen. Lee's green card bill: "I supported his bill. It's consistent with what the White House has been working on. We just had some nuances in the language with regard to rural nurses and basically we worked that out."

With Republicans neutered because their subservience to special interests such as the Koch network, the most likely opposition to the legislation’s passage comes from Democrats like Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who believe S. 386 is unfair because it primarily benefits Indians while hurting other immigrants.
“They are increasing the immigration from countries like India a marginal small amount at the expense of cutting back on immigration from other countries in a much more dramatic fashion—I don’t think there’s equity in that,” Durbin told the Wall Street Journal earlier this month.
Far-left organizers are lobbying Durbin for him to approve the legislation:
🚨ILLINOIS ACTION ITEM ALERT 🚨
We need our members in Illinois to call Senator Dick Durbin in his Washington DC office at 202.224.2152 and ask him to support the unanimous consent of the bi-partisan Harris-Lee – Fairness For High Skilled immigrants act.

Fox Business commentator Lou Dobbs has put the spotlight on Lee and Senate Republicans for turning their backs on “America First” immigration policy and embracing globalist legislation that hits young Americans who are just entering the job market the hardest.
#AmericaFirst– @EdRollins: @POTUS has made a commitment to create jobs for Americans, particularly young Americans coming out of college. This Senate bill would create competition for them by giving visas to Indian students & give them jobs at lower wages. #NOS386 #MAGA #Dobbs pic.twitter.com/ipZuAlQllv

Some pro-Hispanic immigration groups even oppose the legislation because they feel it will hurt Hispanic businesses in order to help Big Tech drive their labor costs down.
“This is a cheap fix, not the right fix. This backlog is horrible but should be dealt with by enlarging quotas or exempting those deemed extraordinary or in the national interest, not by destroying immigration for the rest of the world,” said Tammy Fox-Isicoff, board member of American Immigration Lawyers Association.
“If it goes through, no one in Florida, except Indian nationals, will get residence through employment for the next decade or more. This will kill Florida, basically end all future Hispanic employment immigration to the U.S.,” she added.
Despite the many ill-effects the legislation will create and its widespread unpopularity, the massively influential tech sector is expected to get their way. The Information Technology Industry Council, a policy advocacy group representing many big tech firms, has been leading the legislative drive for months.
“ITI member companies are acutely aware that we live in an age where talent knows no borders. Preventing a skilled worker from providing his or her skill set in the United States because of an arbitrary limit placed on his or her country of origin is counterproductive and no longer makes sense in today’s economy,” wrote Jason Oxman, President and CEO of the ITIC, in a letter to Congressional leaders in July.
“The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act is much-needed legislation that will enable highly skilled workers who wish to work in the United States to propel innovation, engender growth in our economy, and help create American jobs,” Oxman added.
Once again, Republicans in Washington D.C. lack the courage to stand up against the swamp, and the “America First” immigration agenda is dying as a result.

HUH? Matt Gaetz Helps Disgraced Globalist RINO Scott Turner Attempt Return to Congress
Gaetz’s association with this RINO is worrisome.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has gained a reputation as a Congressman who embodies “America First” principles, but he will be fundraising for a disgraced RINO from Virginia who hopes to regain a Congressional seat he lost in 2018 due to his campaign’s corrupt actions.
Gaetz will be appearing with former Congressman Scott Taylor on Thursday in Newport News, Va. for a “meet and greet” at 2nd Street, an American Bistro. There is also a private roundtable event with Gaetz and Taylor that is available to those willing to pay an unlisted price for access to the duo.
Taylor lost his 2nd District Congressional seat to former Navy commander Elaine Luria, a Democrat, in the 2018 mid-term elections after only one term in office. Luria defeated Taylor by a 51 to 48 margin, as voters rejected Taylor following an embarrassing petitions scandal.
Taylor’s team was accused by Democrats of forging ballot signatures for a third-party candidate in a desperate attempt to split the vote. Judge Gregory Rupe ruled that the concerns of the lawsuit filed by Democrats were valid, and the independent candidate was thrown off of the ballot as a result. Taylor’s staffer would eventually be indicted for campaign fraud as a result of the actions taken for the campaign.
“Scott Taylor is a disgrace,” said Waverly Wood, Founder of the Virginia Freedom Caucus. “He’s an embarrassment to the party. This is exactly what you would expect from the RINO establishment.”
Big League Politics has reported on Taylor’s sad history as a RINO in Congress, supporting open borders and attending a Soros-funded globalist summit.
“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears,” Taylor said of the anti-illegal immigration organization that pointed out his support for amnesty.
Taylor also spoke in favor of foreign aid to the Soros-funded Global Citizen summit in Sept. 2017.
“Good evening fellow Global Citizens,” he said. “It’s great to be here and an honor to represent Virginia.”
“Now is not the time to cut foreign aid,” Taylor said during his speech that lasted about a minute.
His appearance at the blatantly globalist event can be seen here:
The connections between Gaetz and Taylor go back several years, as the men have campaigned with each other and exchanged contributions between their respective campaign committees.
Live in NWF and want to see a young, energetic, conservative congressman in action? Aug 2 fmr Navy Seal Congressman Scott Taylor will join us for a YUGE rally in Niceville! @Scotttaylorva https://t.co/6LfpaHMG9m

Open Secrets shows that the Friends Of Matt Gaetz committee donated $2,000 to Taylor’s campaign to help the disgraced RINO get his Congressional seat back. Records retrieved from FEC.gov also show that Scott Taylor for Congress gave Gaetz’s Congressional campaign $2,000 in Aug. 2018.
It is impossible to know Gaetz’s motives, as he did not respond to the request from Big League Politics to explain his associations with the RINO Taylor.
