URGENT ACTION ALERT
Foreign Workers First Clauses in Democrats’ CoronaVirus Bill – Help Stop it.
The CoronaVirus Bill pushed by the Democrats contains several outrageous Foreign Workers First Provisions. We quote from Breitbart Article.
A Hundred-thousand foreign workers to get college jobs or blue collar Jobs while Millions of Americans lose their careers.
The House Democrats’ coronavirus recovery bill allows several hundred thousand foreign workers to get college jobs or blue-collar jobs while millions of Americans lose their careers….
“Congress seems hell-bent on replacing Americans with foreigners,” said Mark Krikorian, the director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “We’re going to have 30 percent unemployment or more — higher than the Great Depression — and yet we are going to bring in more people from abroad? It surreal.”
“This House bill is disgusting,” said Marie Larson, a co-founder of the American Workers Coalition, which organizes U.S. graduates to oppose companies’ growing use of foreign visa workers. “It is an overreach; it has to be called out.”
“During the public health emergency …. [officials] shall temporarily suspend or modify any procedural requirement with which an applicant, petitioner, or other person or entity must otherwise comply under the immigration law,” says Sec. 10607 on page 63 of the 1,119-page House draft.
The suspensions are intended to “ensure the timely and fair adjudication of applications or petitions … [to] prevent hardship to applicants, petitions, beneficiaries, or other persons or entities, including by granting automatic or other extensions or renewals when necessary to protect individuals from lapses in status or work authorizations.”
The bill would even allow H-1B visa workers to stay long past the six-term limit on their temporary stays. For example, the foreign workers who are expected to go home in the next 12 months will instead be allowed to “automatically extend such status or work authorization for the same time period as the alien’s prior status or work authorization.” For H-1Bs, the “same time period’ is three years.
The bill would keep several hundred thousand white-collar visa workers and several hundred thousand blue-collar work-permit workers in the U.S. labor market, even as unemployment is expected to spike past 20 percent.
The bill would also provide a massive giveaway to the many technology, banking, insurance, and staffing companies that have replaced a huge number of U.S. graduates with large blocs of compliant Indian and Chinese graduates.
Without the House language, these wealthy companies would be forced to hire hundreds of thousands of American graduates if their lobbyists cannot persuade the administration to renew the foreign workers’ expiring permits during the massive surge of unemployment among white-collar Americans before the 2020 election.
The visa extensions are backed by FWD.us, a lobby group for West Coast Investors.
The legislation also matches the goals of Compete America. The lobby group has been pushing Congress to pass the S.386 green card giveaway to roughly 300,0000 Indian Hi-1B workers who are employed in the United States by technology, banking, insurance, and staffing companies.
In mid-March, the Department of Homeland Security said it had not stopped plans to deliver 85,000 college-graduate H-1B visa workers to U.S companies….
… There is so much else going on and in such a panic. I expect that the tech lobbyists’ are counting on Trump being very reluctant to veto this bill. Really, the responsibility is on Republican legislatures to make sure he is not presented with that choice. The problem is that the Republicans are just as bad as the Democrats when it comes to preferring visa workers over Americans, but there are some honorable exceptions.
Democrats are trying to make Trump eat a “cap sandwich,” Krikorian said. The Republicans’ job “is to make sure the President is not presented with distasteful actions like this.”

Bad news, House bill would give #H1Bs who had been laid off before corona virus, and those "on the bench", a whole new 3-year lease in America's labor pool. This is bad for #AmericanGrads
Biz bailout: House's coronavirus bill extends visas & work permits for 100Ks of visa-workers in tech-industry jobs needed by laid-off American grads.
Govt' "shall temporarily suspect or modify any procedural reqs ... under the immigration laws.'
“On Tuesday, Pelosi released a revised version of House Democrats’ plan in the midst of the CoronaVirus, which includes:
- A nationwide mandate for ballot harvesting
- $300 million for foreign refugees abroad
- An automatic visa extension for all foreign workers
- An expansion of foreign-language ballots
- Same-day voter registration for the 2020 presidential election
- An amnesty for nearly 800,000 DACA illegal aliens
“Pelosi’s plan also includes forcing American taxpayers to provide federal grant funding to sanctuary jurisdictions that refuse to turn over criminal illegal aliens to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents for arrest and deportation….
“Pelosi came back to Washington, D.C. on Monday after a week-long recess and blew up days of emergency relief work done by the Senate.”
“Nancy Pelosi’s Death Wish for America”
Pelosi’s “modest” revisions in this Tuesday’s version appear to make few if any substantive changes in the original Provisions in the Democrats’ Bill.
But how do we know? The fact is that we do not and probably cannot until the Bill is Passed.
In the famous words of Speaker Pelosi herself, “We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.”
And that is the Danger. Therefore, we must all intensify our pressure on our Representatives to ensure these provisions are excised. And we must Keep up the Pressure until the Bill is Passed.
Outrageous! Contact your Representatives and Senators Now and Tell them to Refuse to Include these Provisions.
