Trump and GOP Drop the Ball on S.386 Outsourcing Bill

Recommended Posts

Time to kill this shit dead. All this thing is is another giveaway to Indian immigrants stealing jobs from American college graduates coming out of the STEM fields. We have more than enough people to take these jobs and they should only be backfilled if there are more positions than applicants. Come on Trump, this ain't MAGA!

GOP Senators, DHS, Back Mike Lee’s Outsourcing Bill

 

Nearly all GOP Senators and top officials at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are quietly backing the S.386 outsourcing bill pushed by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), according to Hill sources.

“There isn’t a single Republican in the U.S. Senate that will stand up against outsourcers,” said an advocate for more legal immigration.

 

“I don’t think the GOP is going block the bill,” a Hill source said.

President Donald Trump’s deputies support the S.386 bill, he said. “He’s got lots of campaign donations from the companies doing the outsourcing [and] he’s not made immigration a part of his platform this time around, which is really his biggest mistake,” the source said.

“This 2020 campaign has not been about immigration,” he added. 

The complex bill is touted as a relief for at least 600,000 Indian contract workers and family members who are waiting for more than ten years to get the green cards promised to them as wages by their outsourcing employers. The bill would remove the “country caps” rule, which caps the award of green cards to people from each country to about 25,000.

 

But the bill would not solve the waiting list problem because it does not set any limit on the number of Indian or other foreign workers who can be nominated by employers for green cards each year.

In fact, the bill’s removal of country caps would also help Fortune 500 CEOs recruit more Indian contract-workers to take more white-collar jobs from U.S. graduates.

Lee’s S.386 bill has been held up by Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL) The two Senators drafted a joint version in March, but their agreement quickly fell apart because of GOP opposition to Durbin’s “50/50” amendment.

Lee, nearly all GOP Senators, and the DHS oppose Durbin’s 50/50 curb, sources say.

 

The 50/50 rule would bar American and Indian firms from getting more H-1B workers if their H-1B workers comprise more than 50 percent of company work forces larger than 50 people.

This week, Durbin has restarted negotiations, and may drop or modify his 50/50 measure to let the GOP rush Lee’s outsourcing bill through the Senate, sources said. “All of this still in flux,” said the immigration advocate.
