Americans Call Your Senators! https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm?OrderBy=state&Sort=ASC https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials Ask them to oppose S386 AND to block S386 and demand hearings (i.e. Put a hold on it pending hearings). Stop S386 (aka India First Act); Stop S2603 (“Relief” for immigrants act). Keep up to date by following/reading @DawnNewYorker’s twitter account.
Dawn’s 2 minute video: “Sold Out By the Senate” is a must see. She talks about losing her job to H1B visa workers from India; explains some of the terrible impacts on her colleagues; the risks of giving India so much power over our technology and information; and the need to Stop S386, which will set aside almost all employment-based green cards for these same workers from India, who stole American jobs in the first place. (S386 also doubles per country extended family joining. India is very backlogged in extended family joining: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/09/26/s386-to-increase-family-joining-migration-from-mexico-india-china-others-by-more-than-doubling-per-country-family-joining-cap/ )
And, it’s not just American tech workers. All educated American workers have been impacted by these policies for decades. All are at risk. Foreign workers have countries, already.
