As soon as insurgents saw the elevation of Microsoft's Satya Nadella to CEO, they knew that the ethnic cleansing of non-Indians would begin.  At least U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions had the balls to call bullshit on Mr. Softie's need for H-1Bs as it purges a bunch of crackers from its ranks:


Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) criticized Microsoft founder Bill Gates for calling on Congress to increase STEM worker visas while the company plans to cut 18,000 jobs next year.

“Super billionaires aren’t happy apparently. … They declare we need to import more foreign workers,” Sessions said on the Senate floor Thursday. “Mr. Gates says we need to let more and more people into our country to take those kinds of jobs.”


Sessions was referring to an op-ed in which Gates called on the House to pass the bipartisan Senate immigration reform bill. That legislation would increase the number of worker visas for immigrants in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

Sessions pointed out that Microsoft announced Thursday that it plans to layoff nearly 20,000 workers in an effort to streamline. He said those workers should take priority over immigrants.

Sessions also cited a recent U.S. census reports that stated 75 percent of U.S. citizens with STEM degrees aren’t working in that field.

“We need them working first before we bring more people in,” Sessions said. “I don’t think you can make the argument that we have a labor shortage.”

Sessions has been an ardent critic of the Senate-passed immigration reform bill, which also would provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants within the United States and increase spending for border security.

It's a sure bet this guy is going to be losing funds from super PACs and lobbyists - any Alabama constituents who can spare a few bucks should contribute to his re-election.

Can't take anymore

I am really concerned for India's future and their youth. That is why I want to see a Bill in Congress called "India's Best and Brightest"; the Bill calls for the greatest generation of IT specialists the World has ever known, the Indian H-1B, to return to India to help India jumpstart its economy. The Bill would give funding to the military to seek out and put in shipping containers Indians who are here as H-1B's and OPT's and Zippy Dee Do-Das and sent IMMEDIATELY to India where they would be welcomed as the greatest gift the US could give India: The Best and Brightest.

US is the loser? Well we've BEEN importing these people for FIFTEEN YEARS and all we have to show for it is a wrecked a econ, record debt, and 90 million Americans are on food stamps.

I'd say the US is the loser for importing them, not keeping them out.

The USA was BOOMING in 1998 when Americans ran things.

If Indian H-1Bs were the ahem... "IT Specialists" as they claim, India would be booming and they wouldn't need to come to the USA to rob a job. Instead India is still 600,000,000 toilets short. Try building some sewers before you try building computers.

Senator Jeff Sessions is running un-opposed for his re-election this year - this guy doesn't owe Washington lobbyists a thing.  This is the sort of representation we should all have.  Call your senators and congress reps and ask why they can't make the same statements as Jeff Sessions. They won't say why (if they take your call at all!), but it will be because they like the money they get from these PACs.
