H.R. 1044 & S. 386

Most of you will have no idea what this is.

Some of you that have been forced out of the workforce via free trade agreements sending your job to other countries and those government, media, academia and businesses that have imported a tidal wave of non-immigrant guest workers to take your job from you might know.

So let’s bring everybody up to speed.

H.R. 1044

Passed House (07/10/2019)

Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019

This bill increases the per-country cap on family-based immigrant visas from 7% of the total number of such visas available that year to 15%, and eliminates the 7% cap for employment-based immigrant visas. It also removes an offset that reduced the number of visas for individuals from China.

The bill also establishes transition rules for employment-based visas from FY2020-FY2022, by reserving a percentage of EB-2 (workers with advanced degrees or exceptional ability), EB-3 (skilled and other workers), and EB-5 (investors) visas for individuals not from the two countries with the largest number of recipients of such visas. Of the unreserved visas, not more than 85% shall be allotted to immigrants from any single country.

Now if you listen to our politicians in the house, you will find they supported and approved this resolution because it is fair for our High-Skilled immigrants.

Yet when we who held those type of jobs before they were imported try to talk to these same politicians and explain to them what is happening, we are not given that opportunity at all.

So my question to them, and to you is this – What about our High-Skilled American born, and naturalized citizens?

Do they not deserve the same level of fairness?

Now I realize that maybe they are not experts on the subject, and I’m willing to introduce them to experts on the subject, but I can’t do that unless you support me and make it possible so that I can be in a position to introduce them to those experts.

This lady can explain what is happening if you will take the time to listen and educate yourself.

After all, it is your future and the future of your children that will pay the price if these politicians are wrong.

As of 30 July 2019 at 12:11 noon, There is one vote for it here from Texas, and hint, hint, my name would not be there if I was in his position.

I am all for legal immigration where they immigrate here to become an American Citizen and especially a Texan where they work alongside of us to make the great State of Texas even better and uphold our laws, especially our equal employment opportunity laws where we believe that all men, and women, are created equal.

But I will never support a caste type system where we exclude Americans from the job market because they are not of our caste, or our background.

If you don’t know what I mean by that, ask me, and I will point you in the right direction, or you can simply read this article by clicking here.

It is real, it is happening, and it has destroyed the future of everybody that it has touched.

And it is showing up in our department of labor data where we track foreign born employed and native born employed.
