NumbersUSA's Capitol Hill Team is hearing numerous reports and seeing signs indicating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is negotiating to give millions of American jobs to foreign workers.
Pelosi's backroom deals appear to be motivated by fear that a group of freshmen Democrats may get most Republicans to help them force a vote on the enforcement-only SAVE Act (Secure America with Verification Enforcement). That bill -- with 151 bi-partisan signers in the House and Senate -- primarily would drive millions of illegal aliens out of their jobs. But Pelosi is trying to ensure that if the bill comes to a vote, it will include huge increases in H-2B and H-1B visas for foreign workers of all kinds – and, that it will include millions of legal work permits for all the illegal aliens currently holding jobs unlawfully.
Unfortunately, Pelosi, the most radical Member of Congress on the immigration issue, is using her power as Speaker of the House to try to wreak even more damage on the most vulnerable American workers and legal immigrant workers in this country.
NumbersUSA urges all Americans concerned by Rep. Pelosi's outrageous push for more foreign work visas to contact their Members of Congress and express their opposition.
