SEN. GRASSLEY HATES THE H-1B? NO, HE LOVES THE H-1B!

by Chris Musillo

The Senate is controlled by Republicans who are odds at how to handle the real and perceived problems with the H-1B visa. One group of Senators, led by Sen. Orin Hatch (R-UT), recognizes the obvious: that the H-1B visa quota is an enormous hindrance to the US economy. Sen. Hatch’s solution is to increase the quota while maintaining protections for US workers. Sen. Hatch’s bill, the I-Squared bill, has support from Senators in both parties, with co-sponsorship from eleven different Senators. It is the rare piece of legislation that has support from a diverse group of Senators.

This sensible coalition recognizes that an increased H-1B visa cap is necessary. There is no real evidence that the H-1B drives down US workers’ wages.

The other side of the debate is spearheaded by Sen. Grassley (R-IA), with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) riding alongside. Neither Senator is actually interested in getting legislation passed, as evidenced by the fact that neither has actually introduced any legislation. They are only interested in rabble rousing. Earlier this week, they held a hearing on the H-1B visa, which amounted to nothing.

Sen. Grassley's plan seems to be able to force amendments to the I-Squared, whose support is growing. He has done this many times in the past. These amendments will only increase the regulatory and legislative headaches that lawful staffing companies already face. The companies that take advantage of loose enforcement will continue to do so.

It is in the Senator's best interest to keep the H-1B bill alive and well. How else can he tell the protectionists how bad it is?

    Apparently the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans will wait for Judge Hanen?s ruling on this ongoing soap-opera prior to any decision; a reality show indeed created by the Obama administration legal team who evidently displayed gruesome levels of incompetence, negligence and fair-to-say misleading handling in regards to the so-called ?Executive Actions? on immigration.

    Judge: Sanctions possible in Obama immigration court case
    BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) ? A federal judge who has blocked President Barack Obama?s immigration executive action suggested on Thursday that he could order sanctions against the Justice Department if he rules it misled him about when exactly the administration began implementing one of the measures?

    Still wondering why President Obama on 11/20/2014 did not issue an EXECUTIVE ORDER dealing with the current immigration issue under the grounds of National Security during times of war.
