Mike Lee's Green Card Giveaway For Big Tech Blocked in Senate, For Now

Sep. 20, 2019

Senator Mike Lee's (R-UT) green card giveaway for the nation's biggest tech corporations has been at least temporarily blocked in the U.S. Senate by Sen. David Perdue (R-GA).

On Thursday, as Lee attempted to push through his and Sen. Kamala Harris's (D-CA) S. 386 — legislation that would allow Indian nationals to effectively monopolize the U.S. green card system for at least ten years — Perdue blocked a vote because he is concerned about the impact the plan will have on rural healthcare industries.

"I support this bill … we have some language that needs to be clarified," Perdue said. "And I still have some concerns about the impact this legislation would have on some specific industries in my state and in the country."

Lee said he expects to work with Perdue on getting his support in order to push for a vote sometime next week.

At stake is a massive giveaway for employment-based green cards for Big Tech — including those who have contributed directly to Lee, like Google, Alphabet Inc., and Amazon.
