America First – Liberals Join GOP To Defeat A Massive Outsourcing Job Bill


Sometimes on Capitol Hill legislators actually look out for their constituents catching those they caucus with, off guard.

The Biden-led Democratic party has systemically removed former President Trump’s immigration policies leading to over 5 million foreign nationals pouring across the US southern border in less than 2 years.

But, when the left got behind big tech and Wall Street billionaires looking to expand the number of work VISAs, taking more American jobs, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus said enough, looking out for black Americans who should be trained to take the jobs instead.

House GOP legislators defeated the big-tech backed EAGLE Act outsourcing bill on Wednesday, but only with the help of a handful of liberal Democrats who rejected the bill’s preference for Indian visa workers.

This is a big defeat for Wall Street as a similar bill had huge support in 2019 with only 65 votes against it.

The bill was pushed by FWD.us, which represents West Coast investors and their outsourcing companies. The 2013 founders included Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, John Doerr at Kleiner Perkins, Matt Cohler at Benchmark, and Reid Hoffman, a partner at the Greylock Partners investment firm who also sits on Microsoft’s board.

The investors hid their Section 7 behind a PR strategy that pitched the bill as a decent fix for the pro-diversity “country caps.” The caps limit the annual share of 140,000 corporate-sponsored green cards that can be allocated to the Indian visa workers preferred by the Fortune 500 and their subcontractors.

It threatened to flood the U.S. labor market with a sea of compliant workers, that could only work for the sponsoring company, who would displace millions of Americans from white-collar and blue-collar jobs.

The bill surprisingly died without a vote when Democratic leaders withdrew the bill once they recognized they would lose on the House floor.
Nearly all GOP members — including the eight GOP sponsors of the Fortune 500 giveaway turned against their own bill as GOP leaders Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) declared their opposition and began whipping their members to vote against the bill.

GOP legislators used Section 7 to coalesce around, rejecting the legislation.

The bill is “a big fat middle finger to America’s working families,” said Rep. Tom McClintock, (R-CA), one of the leading voices against the bill.

Section 7 of the bill “is an end-run around the annual green card limit,” Rep. Scott Fitzgerald (R-WI) told the Committee on Rules, which sets the rules for each floor debate in the House.

But the GOP opposition came after conservative activists and immigration reformers lobbied members face-to-face — and after one-in-six GOP voters showed that immigration was their top priority during the 2022 midterm elections.

The GOP only won because of the support from Democrats, including Rep. Yvette Clark (D-MY) who runs the immigration section of the Congressional Black Caucus. “I cannot support efforts that would perpetuate the current inequities in our immigration system,” she tweeted on December 6.

“I think that was probably the most significant development,” said Kevin Lynn, founder of U.S. Tech Workers, adding:

I think what we’re going to see going forward is an awakening of American descendants. of slaves that they have real political power, and they don’t have to toe the Democratic line. In this case, they pushed off the Chambers of Commerce, the corporate Democrats, and they said, “Hey, what this doesn’t work for anyone but one country so we’re not going along with it.”
