America Saved from H-1B Visa Scam by an Unlikely Source… for Now

The globalist forces in Congress have been in a mad rush all year long to try to blow the caps off of the job-killing H-1B visa scam. President Trump is reworking immigration policy to reduce the inflow of third world peasants who are stealing jobs and resources from American families. Congress isn’t having it. Forced diversity, open borders and mass immigration will make your life better; that is their mantra. But now, bill S. 386 has hit an unlikely brick wall in the US Senate. The bill is completely dead in the water, ensuring more jobs in the tech sector for Americans – at least for now.

This story will make you feel like you’re living in an upside-down world. The Senators who are pushing S. 386, a bill to allow big tech companies in Silicon Valley to import as many Chinese and Indian tech workers as they want, are from Utah.

Yes, the Mormon state that has reliably been the most rightwing conservative bastion in the country for the past 150 years. Just looking at the Senators from Utah who are pushing this is bewildering: Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT, aka Pierre Delecto). Mike Lee was a Tea Party guy a few years ago, and Pierre Delecto was the Republican nominee for president in 2012, his big promise to voters was that he had “binders full of women” he was ready to hire.

Those are the guys who are trying to completely open the floodgates and swamp the American tech sector with foreign workers. This is insane, by the way. Mass immigration of tech workers has the odd dual effect of freezing American college grads out of high-paying tech jobs and creating a tighter labor market where Americans can’t find work – while simultaneously dragging salaries down into the mud. According to the latest estimates from the Labor Department, more than 50% of American graduates in technology and engineering cannot find jobs in their fields, because the market has been flooded by low wage tech workers from China and India.

 

The job to allow unlimited low-wage foreign tech workers soared through the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. Senators Lee and Delecto were hoping to ram it through the Senate before the November election. With their support and the Democrat caucus, they need only a handful of additional Republican turncoats to send the bill to President Trump’s desk – although it’s unclear whether he would sign it into law.

But now the bill has drawn a solid “No” vote from an unlikely source. Who is this eagle patriot champion of America on steroids that is preserving American jobs for Americans? Must be Ted Cruz or Rand Paul or maybe even Jim Inhofe, right?

Actually… no. The Senator who has placed a block on the bill and killed at completely – at least for now – is Florida Senator Rick Scott.

Huh?

The same Rick Scott who gave illegal aliens in-state tuition in Florida colleges when he was that state’s governor? The same Rick Scott who opposes Real ID to prevent illegal aliens from stealing more American jobs? The same Rick Scott who opposed President Trump’s brilliant idea to dump illegal aliens in sanctuary cities?

Yes. That same Rick Scott.

The Senator penned a thoughtful op-ed in which he noted that the forces of globalism in Congress (although he didn’t call them that) were trying to rush the bill through the Senate under unanimous consent. That means the massive change to our nation’s immigration system through S. 386 would happen without Senators even voting on it.

One thing that this definitely signals is that the still-reforming Republican Party is now fully Donald Trump’s party. A Republican Senator opposing open borders through the H-1B visa scam would have been a complete rarity a few years ago. In fact, former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) was the lone voice in the Republican Senate who was pointing out that mass immigration hurts Americans in myriad ways.

Maybe Sen. Rick Scott is simply angling for a different form of an open-borders bill by holding up S. 386. But it’s possible that the movement that Donald Trump spearheaded has now opened the eyes of many more Republican lawmakers. That would be a good thing for America and for the Republican Party.

Time will tell what Rick Scott’s motives are. But for now, he deserves a pat on the back from any of our children and grandchildren who hope to one day land a job in the tech sector. Well done, Sen. Scott.

  1. I generally am not a believer in the reformation of any politician, but perhaps Mr. Scott is seeing which way the wind blows and realizes he needs to get on board with who actually pays his salary.

    1. a n couple yrs ago Disney fired all of their employees and brought in these H-1b visa’s holders to do the job Americans were doing, and if the fired employees wanted their severance package they had to train all of the H-1b visa holders that were taking their jobs

  2. Thank you Senator Rick Scott for holding up the S.386 bill for us Americans!! I’m grateful. I’m a Republican all the way! I won’t forget this.

  3. Lee & Romney need to Stop !!! Think of American Jobs not Foreign labor !!! Why in the H*** do they want to import Labor when there is qualified American that area qualified !!! They want Cheap labor for big TECH companies like Google , Microsoft Facebook & twitter just to mention a few !!! Especially when these companies are put many restriction on people that use them !!! Lee & Romney should be more worried about American workers rather then big Tech < Maybe they should consider breaking these giants up like happened to the telephone industry !!!

    1. Utah is currently striving to build up their own tech hot spot, and the lure of money blinds them to the ill effects on citizens. This is part of the same relationship that the established tech companies (and other corporate entitites) have with Democrats and globalists in general – open borders to keep wages low, allowing them to build monopolies while increasing regulation and restriction to thwart new competitors, and selling out to China for the dream of huge profits from that market. No care or thought to long term consequences…

      1. Exactly. Never forget – follow the money ! Most people would probably faint if they knew how much money changed hands in the back rooms of Congress. You know the old cliche – Politics makes strange bedfellows ? It’s just another way to say follow the money & how corrupt politicians are.

    2. Utah has two major universities in their state, BYU and U of U, and several minor ones. I am certain them supporting expanding the work visa program has to do with the number of foreign students those universities have who graduate at the tops of their majors. Those students bring in a lot of revenue for those schools in higher tuition rates. If they can’t guarantee jobs after graduation, those numbers would go down.

      1. Then they should hold those spots open for American students too! What they are doing is seeing the handwriting on the wall. If companies can’t send their jobs out of the country to get cheaper labor they want to bring the cheaper labor here. That would be a worse effect on our economy. It is just another way to bring way more illegal immigrants in the country. These two, Romney and Lee need to be out! Especially Romney. But they are both back stabbing traitors.

    3. Not only is Romney a never Trumper, so is Lee. Lee seemed to be a good conservative when first elected but he has shown his true ties with the left. Both Lee and Romney are traitors to this country.

      1. I agree 100% I expect this from Romney but Senator Lee is a surprise !! Tucker has also accused Sen. Lee of working behind the scenes to allow The big tech companies to quite conservative voices and thoughts!!
        He did not accept an invitation from Tucker to appear and explain himself!! Just an update on the other things Sen. Lee is up to.

  4. Reading this way over due reaction fortifies much, LOTS! It’s about time that all the fake leaders are held to the fire. Push for term limits and how about monthly role calls listing all names both left and right that vote against American jobs. Disgrace them as they deserve. No more cowards that have but one purpose, themselves.

    1. So well said. And the BIG TECH MEDIA needs to be held accountable for al the lies they spread. CNN, MSNBC,Google, HOLLYWOOD ELITES, FACEBOOK,TWITTER ATLANTIC,ETC ETC. SO afraid that the dems will take away there money megadonars Or their monopolies. Sad that these Demorats have changed their party to communistic.

    2. Yes term limits and no perks when they leave office. No one has ever talked about what these people in office are costing this country. They don’t deserve anything when they leave office. They are suppose to be working for the American people not for themselves. Even while in office they are way over paid, they don’t do anything to warrant the pay they receive.

    3. Absolutely right. We have so many elected RINOs right now that don’t have the guts to stand up to the leftist goals of Nancy, Chuckie and the Dumbocrats that it’s sickening. In November, if they have been tilting left, make sure that they are LEFT OUT of the election process. We sure as H dont need them collaborating with the anarchist party and screwing everything up!

  5. What is wrong with politicians who think it is better to bring immigrants into our country and take jobs from Americans? I have no issue with immigrants who come into our country for legitimate reasons and do it legally. We are a diverse country. But we should not just open up and let any and many come when we have Americans who need the jobs. I know this is the land of dreams and, guess what, Americans have those dreams too. This should be a bipartisan issue of keeping Americans working.

    1. I hate to say this (I really do), but I am retired from a job in a large company where I worked in the tech department. We had MANY H-1B Visa workers, and you know what? They are better workers than our home grown type. This younger crowd of American workers have been taught to do what they want – when they want. They have the attitude of “You’re not the boss of me.” Well, yes, at work, I am the boss of you! Although American employees with a good work ethic are difficult to find, they can be found. They just do not have all the skills needed. But do not be fooled…..the H-1B workers are NOT cheap labor – not in the tech industry. Your cheap labor comes in the form of illegal immigrants. The ones who come legally have a hefty price tag. When we start to educate our college students with skills they can use somewhere other than an antifa rally or protest, then we shall no longer need the H-1B workers. Think about the ‘uneducated’ electrician who owns his own business. He didn’t go to college per se. He went to trade school to learn a useable skill. And if he owns his own business, you can bet he has a great work ethic or people wouldn’t hire him! There is no simple fix. We have coddled our kids for so long that we may never be able to fix the problem.

      1. After many years in the workforce, I began to notice that the younger generation of workers seemed to have 2 concerns about their jobs: 1) what’s the most you will pay me?; and 2) what’s the least I have to do to get that?

    2. That is so true. Romney ‘sold out’ when he didn’t get a prime appointment in President Trump’s cabinet. He thought that would make up for losing his bid for the presidency.
      Just a sore loser! Jobs for fellow Americans are so important and he and Lee need to keep that in mind!

      1. So true! Like many others, I’m so disappointed and angry with Mitt Romney! I expected so much more when I voted for the Romney/Ryan ticket only to find out later how greedy they both were, both of them RINO’s!!!

  6. It’s about cheap labor. Well slave labor! All big companies are behind this. No benefit no nothing. Democrat and Republican are behind this. The socialist and communist party want middle America gone. Look at Facebook and the rest. Fact checkers from other countries telling you want you can’t post. Democrat party is destroying America.

  7. I tend to be suspicious of legislators who hold diametrically opposing views on elements related to the same issue, particularly on immigration. I don’t know what Rick Scott’s game is, but he has definitely made the correct choice on S.386……for NOW!

  8. Thank you so much for fighting for the American people. Please fight for American people to receive a second stimulus package not for illegal aliens.

  9. America is being destroyed!
    The Radical Left Democrats are destroying America!!
    We need to vote democrats out of office!!
    We need to Vote for TRUMP!!

    1. Not only TRUMP! We need control of the HOUSE AND SENATE to get anything accomplished! Please everyone, if you have never before, study who you are voting for! We need to clean this mess up and that is the only way to do it! Make sure who you are voting for is in full support of President Trump or we will have another 4 years of Nancy Pelosi garbage.

  10. DID YOU KNOW: The H1B VISA allows for validation of College Equivalency Degree Status equal to an ACCREDITED US College, that can not be disputed for the purpose of Employment and does not require even one year of actual College. This is true up to the Master’s Degree Level and NO US Citizen is Eligible for this benefit!

    The regulations specifically state that, for H1B purposes, three (3) years of progressive work experience in the field will be considered the equivalent of one year of U.S. university study. A US CITIZEN cannot use a Foreign Credential Evaluation Service to attain the same validation and therefore is “Legally” discriminated against in domestic employment.

    1. If you have less than a 4-year degree, the H1B evaluation allows you to ‘combine’ your degrees if you have multiple degrees. Therefore two Associate Degrees could equal a Bachelors Degree.

    2. The regulations also allow you to combine progressive work experience in the field with university study, or in some cases, use work experience alone to meet the equivalency requirement. Therefore 15 years of progressive work experience in the field would qualify for a Masters Degree Equivalency.

    The regulations specifically state that, for H1B purposes, three (3) years of progressive work experience in the field will be considered the equivalent of one year of U.S. university study. This is the foundation of the evaluation process, but it is unavailable to US Citizens as they are unable to participate in a similar program for qualification as a Bachelors/Masters Equivalency. It is considered a “Diploma Mill Activity” for a US Citizen/National.

    1. That is wrong because it excludes American workers but it should be the case for all. College degrees aren’t worth the paper they are written on in most fields. Work experience and apprenticeship should count for education for any field. Colleges have become employment agencies and indoctrination camps for left wingers and our American kids can get a better education and learn better work ethic on the job! Plus not spend the rest of their lives paying for it. The whole college system needs to be completely overhauled and most eliminated. It is useless. Worse than useless. It is harmful to our society! That is where most, if not all, of this left wing, socialist, communist ideology comes from.

  11. If he is an illegal lover — Scott will pull a fast one when the time is right. Illegals should have ZERO rights in this country –ZERO RIGHTS and if this clown voted for them in the past — he will do it again when it benefits him. Never trust a politician –they are there for 1 reason — line their own pockets.

  12. My son in law haf to work with h1b visa techs. They knew absolutely nothing when they got the job. The company brought them over from India, put several in an apartmen and paid substandard wages. They could have hired from tech schools or colleges. They would have had to
    pay more of course.

  13. Yes term limits and no perks when they leave office. No one has ever talked about what these people in office are costing this country. They don’t deserve anything when they leave office. They are suppose to be working for the American people not for themselves. Even while in office they are way over paid, they don’t do anything to warrant the pay they receive.

  14. It will take as long to curb the millennials’ mind set as it did to build the attitude. Nikita Khrushshchev stated in cold war days ” we will take you and never fire a shot”.
    The takeover is well on its way!!! School teachers, administrators, unions, college professors and crooked politicians are all lending a hand with progressive ideas and taking money from China and celebrities and democrat donors who are invested in China.

  15. Bill Gates went before Congress, and wanted to stop the limiting of the number of H-1B Visa holders, being allowed in America, every year!

    Gates said he can’t find Americans who are as smart, as the Chinese, and Indian Visa holders.

    The truth is, he knows these people will work for less money, to get into America!
    Apparently 80 or 100 billion dollars, is not enough for Gates!

    1. He also knows it is a back door to bring in illegal immigrants! There are always hidden agendas. The out front agenda is not good but there are also other reasons they are wanting to bring all these people in this country.

  16. Aren’t we opening doors for Spies selling secrets to Foreign countries by hiring “So called” better workers than Americans? How many people involved in “Spy Tactics ” have we already hired to work in sensitive areas ? I don’t think we even have a clue, having a Chinese Spy driving and privy to sensitive information for a US Senator for 20 years ? That alone should elicit a “C’mon Man”from Joey “The Grope”Biden but Diane Feinstein swept that deal under the rug so all we hear is Crickets while the Donkey People have a “Pity Party”for Poor Diane cause she didn’t know (For 20 Years) Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm !

  17. BS to the idea that H1B workers are not cheap labor! But there are two reasons why H1B workers are wanted by Big TECH firms. They are cheap and they are compliant (because they have to be). H1B workers are hired in bunches and there cost is an average cost where some H1B workers don’t have any real skills and those who do are few and far between. The actual cost of a bunch of H1Bs is set up so that the average salary works out to be a number that the hiring managers can live with. But the number of real skilled workers is much lower than one would think. And often the real skilled workers are part of more than one bunch of H1B workers even using different names and collecting more than one paycheck. Often these few skilled workers cover for the less skilled workers and often cut corners on things like testing and documentation. But you get what you pay for! And if you look at these H1B workers’ resume close enough you will find serious discrepancies in both expertise and places previously worked. Ask them a technical question and watch them huddle up with other members of the H1B worker group to find an acceptable answer to the question. Another attribute is that they often hard code parameters which require having to scan code to change these parameters. This is done to make it difficult for someone else to work on their code and it is done on purpose as job security and to make more money. Most of these workers only know JAVA and very little else. Their degrees are often fraudulent (bought and paid for) and their past work experience is often fraudulent as well.

  18. Here is one for all that are complaints:

    There are several Major universities today that have Federal Aviation Administration approved flight schools. I cannot get hired as the Dean of any of these schools because I only have a BS degree in Civil Engineering from Kansas State University which automatically disqualifies me because I don’t have a Masters Degree in “Sandbox BS”. However, I hold an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate with 6 Type ratings (aircraft over 12,500 pounds gross weight and ALL turbojet aircraft), with over 20,000 flying hours. I have just about seen it all weather wise, because I did a lot of prior experience in “Tornado Alley” before my Airline Career! I also have experienced 2 Micro-Bursts that I know of, and lived to tell about it – remember Delta Flight 191 in DFW? In other words, my Aviation experience with 6 Type ratings is the equivalent of at least 2 PHD Degrees. The day that I received my instrument rating and had 297 flying hours, I thought I was “Sky King”. My mentor looked at me and stated: All you got there Boy, is a license to LEARN! Those true words were the spoken absolute rule.

    Who would you like teaching these no-nothings in the airplane that you are in the back seat? Someone that looks good on paper, or someone that has actually seen it ALL? JR, “You are never Dying to get there, but you will always be “on time” at the scene of the accident.
