"Congress must prioritize four repairs for the immigration system before contemplating any DACA-style amnesty negotiation, said Brat: 1. Ending chain migration and the visa lottery; 2. Mandating employer use of E-Verify; 3. Construction of a southern border wall; and 4. Interior enforcement of immigration law." REP. DAVE BRAT

MICROSOFT AND CISCO FRAUD ON H-1B VISAS.... THEY SIMPLY DON'T WANT TO HIRE AMERICAN!

Microsoft, Cisco Hide H-1B Hires Through Indian Outsourcing Firms, Says Report
A number of the largest tech corporations in Silicon Valley hide their hiring of foreign workers through the H-1B visa by contracting them through India-based outsourcing firms, a report states.
In a revealing report by Bloomberg News, Cisco, Microsoft, Google, Facebook and others are using outsourcing firms to obtain hundreds, and sometimes thousands of H-1B staff, often replacing Americans.
For instance, when outsourcing firms applied for foreign H-1B workers on Cisco’s behalf, the average salary for those jobs being outsourced were about 25 percent lower than the average salary for foreign worker that the company had directly requested.
In other words, Cisco hides its usage of the H-1B visa by contracting foreign workers through an outsourcing firm and pays them less than when they hire foreign workers directly. The revelation is in-step with critics’ frustration with the H-1B visa, which they describe as a cheap labor avenue:
Cisco’s use of the visa program has been the subject of public attention over the years, as its executives have lobbied for its expansion even while conducting multiple rounds of layoffs. The company eliminated 940 jobs at its headquarters in 2016, and 390 more so far this year.
Not every application resulted in a new job at Cisco — fewer than a third of the applications for all industries in 2016 were accepted. Still, taken as a whole, the applications show that Cisco is both more reliant on the H-1B program than previously acknowledged, and that the company uses it in a way that has not been fully understood. The contractors were not applying for visas covering the type of senior-level positions that Cisco sought for itself. Instead, almost all of these visa requests were for jobs requiring little or no specialized knowledge. The average salaries for those positions were about 25 percent lower than the jobs Cisco applied for directly.
Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa. Most recently, that number has ballooned to potentially hundreds of thousands each year, as universities and non-profits are exempt from the cap. With more entering the U.S. through the visa, Americans are often fired and forced to their foreign replacement.
Additionally, other giant American tech companies are using the same model as Cisco. PayPal, for example, partnered with an outsourcing firm between 2015 and 2016 that applied for half of the foreign H-1B staff the tech giant was requesting. The other half were applied for directly by PayPal.
At the Microsoft Corporation’s headquarters, 43 percent of the foreign H-1B workers were applied for through an outsourcing outfit, as well as 29 percent at eBay and 12 percent at Facebook’s respective home bases.
In the past, critics of the H-1B visa told Breitbart Texas that tech corporations, as well as other industries, have for years been using various foreign guest worker visas, like the H-1B, to save on labor costs.

THE TRUMP AMNESTY… BUILT ON THE OBAMA AMNESTY and
endorsed by NARCOMEX
Open the floodgates of our welfare
state to the uneducated, impoverished, and unskilled masses of the world and in
a generation or three America, as we know it, will be gone.
Those most impacted are middle
class and lower middle class. It is they whose jobs are taken, whose raises are
postponed, whose schools are filled with non-English speaking children that
absorb precious resources for remedial English, whose public parks are trashed
and whose emergency rooms serve as the local clinic for the illegal
"When it comes to Islamic
terror or shariah imposition, Obama
and other globalists preach a type of defenselessness and impotence: something
we have to abide. For many liberals, virtue signaling, the epitome of vanity,
is more important than saving lives, even the lives of their countrymen."
Many making the accusations of xenophobia live in rarified societies and
neighborhoods or in high-end and fashionable apartment buildings with security
guards and doormen, immune from the consequences of Open Borders, loss of manual jobs,
overseas nation-building, and the harmful effects arising from perfunctory
background checks and superficial vetting.
BILLIONAIRES FOR BORDERLESS AMERICA
….It’s all to keep wages DEPRESSED.
“This nation no longer is a democratic
republic...rather it has become a tool of the super-rich members of the above
mentioned elite who preselect our presidents based on their cooperation and
complicity with the elite’s ultimate goals. Obama has, in their opinion done
superbly carrying out the plans well laid out for him by his backers.”
“The principal beneficiaries of
our current immigration policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at
substandard wages for low-end work. Harvard economist George Borjas estimates
that American workers lose $190 billion annually (DATED FIGURES) in depressed
wages caused by the constant flooding of the labor market at the low-wage end.”
THE WAR ON THE AMERICAN (LEGAL) WORKER:
While the declining job market in the United States may be
discouraging some would-be border crossers, a flow of illegal aliens continues
unabated, with many entering the United States as drug-smuggling “mules.”
