GOP Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) is championing legislation to reward Indian workers who take jobs sought by American college graduates. [...]
Tillis championed Sen. Mike Lees S.386 bill which would give many more green cards to Indias contract workers while he blocked the passage of Sen. Dick Durbins RELIEF Act giveaway to Indias workers [...]
The rival Lee and Durbin bills would remove the so-called country cap on the annual award of green cards to foreign nationals. Under that law, the roughly 800,000 Indian workers in the United States can get about 10,000 green cards each year. The disparity means that roughly 300,000 of Indias contract workers are working while waiting for green cards. The cards were promised as a reward by their employers in exchange for the workers accepting low wages to take Americans jobs.
Lees bill would allow 50,000 Indian workers to get green cards and citizenship each year. Durbins bill would allow roughly 100,000 Indian workers to get green cards and citizenship each year. Both bills also raise the number of green cards that can be given to the workers Indian families.
But the removal of the country caps would encourage many more Indians to take Americans jobs over the next ten years.
Under existing law, Indians can easily take Americans jobs by first getting Optional Practical Training work permits from U.S. colleges and universities. The OPT jobs also allow them to compete for slots in the H-1B visa program, which acts as an on-ramp to citizenship.
But only about 50,000 Indians are now enrolled in the OPT program because the multi-year pipeline to citizenship is blocked by the 300,000 Indians who are trying to squeeze through the 10,000-per-year country cap rule. [...]

At some point it may be time to WALK AWAY from the GOP.
Charlie Kirk and Co. will just say it’s the free market in effect, and snowflake Millennials should be willing to work for less than what H1B Visaholders are paid. Who cares if Americans are locked out of the IT, Medical, and Legal professions? At least it’s not, SOCIALISM!
Traitorous cretins. So why would American students go into such great debt to get college degrees, only to find the jobs they were preparing for have been filled by cheaper scab Indians?
Keep electing Bush League Republicans and they WILL give our country away.
In stories like this the wording used is usually “Indians taking Americans jobs”
I would consider it more accurate to say “Employers giving Americans jobs to Indians”
Agreed, they are traitors.
Just curious ... where to?
In my opinion it would serve a ‘’greater good’’ to be active in ‘’primaring’’ the rinos out of the party and join in getting more true conservatives put in. They’re out there and many just need wider support for them to run.
I’ve walked away from just bitching. I now participate and work at getting others active. If the democraps can do it, so can Conservatives.
I’d love seeing more join in.
Agreed - the blame lies with the corporate globalists ... and their congressional whores.
Amen! What ought be done in cases where that effort fails?
Once a GOP’er has been a senator 2 terms (12 years) this is a high probability they’re now worthless and need to be at least seriously “primaried” if not sent home!
Those of us in NC have a duty to vote out Tillis and Burr. I am SO ashamed of both of them.
Traitors. Elsewhere I read that Nunes is sponsoring amnesty for illegal farm workers. Dont they understand NO AMNESTY???
Gillis is owned by the Chamber of Corruption.
Who share none of our heritage culture history or religion
F them. Move to India, Tillis.
The code these guys produce is usually complete shit, often times a company contracts these “cheap” workers and then have to pay Western devs to clean up their messes and try to salvage the product. I keep thinking companies will learn their lesson, but the allure of cost-cutting, cheap labor is too much to resist I guess.
it’s freaky how many India Indians, and all their extended family members, are flooding in and entrenching in the U.S.
Talk about quid pro quo. What does India do for Americans?
Indian immigrants steadfastly refuse to speak English, preferring to babble away in their various Indian dialects
when in public in the U.S. This consigning themselves to forever being non-American immigrants , foreigners in our midst.
And they don’t tip
Doctors and nurses you are the next target for H-1B usurpation. On deck - teachers.
