Sen. Mike Lee’s Green Card Handout Bill to Punish American Workers Set to Pass on Thursday

Sen. David Purdue folded, and it is now likely to be fast-tracked through the Senate.

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.

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:

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.

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.
