The nation’s biggest tech corporations joined forces with the United States Chamber of Commerce and the outsourcing industry to keep foreign visa-holders in American jobs even as about 16.4 million Americans remain jobless.

Executives with Google, Amazon, Apple, IBM, HP, the Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable, the Microsoft Corporation, Twitter, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us, Michael Bloomberg’s New American Economy, and other corporations have filed an amicus brief in a lawsuit to ask a federal court to keep more than 90,000 foreign visa-holders in the U.S. workforce.

The lawsuit was first filed in 2015 by Save Jobs USA, a group of former American workers at Southern California Edison who had their jobs outsourced to foreign visa workers, to block the Obama administration from giving work permits to H-4 visa-holders who are the spouses of H-1B visa workers.

The outsourced American workers argue that the executive action by Obama wrongly gives the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the authority to provide work permits to tens of thousands of H-4 visa holders. Congress, they argue, did not authorize such authority to DHS and thus, the agency does not have the authority to provide the work permits.

“There is no statutory authorization for an alien possessing an H-4 visa to work,” Save Jobs USA’s initial complaint states.

Today, close to 100,000 foreign spouses of H-1B visa-holders have American jobs in the U.S. labor market thanks to the H-4 visa work permit authorization that the Obama administration began. That has been continued throughout the Trump and Biden administrations.

The cheap foreign labor pipeline, Save Jobs USA argues, unjustly increases foreign labor market competition against America’s white-collar workforce who are forced to compete for jobs against such visa-holders. [...]

Trump toughened the standards and made it very difficult to obtain and renew H1B’s, essentially neutralizing Lee’s "Indian labor invasion bill.”. And he was far better on immigration then the clown who now occupies the Whitehouse.
