A second incumbent Republican has lost his primary race after backing a plan that would have allowed India to monopolize the nation’s employment-based green card system while rewarding Big Tech for outsourcing American STEM jobs.
Tipton had also joined 140 Republicans like Reps. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), and Lee Zeldin (R-NY) last year in supporting Big Tech’s green card giveaway plan, allowing India to monopolize the nation’s employment-based green card system.
1044, the plan would have allowed outsourcing firms such as Cognizant, as well as giant tech corporations like Amazon, to secure a green card system where only temporary foreign workers on H-1B visas are able to obtain employment visas by creating a backlog of seven to eight years for all foreign nationals.
This process would solidify that employment-based green cards only go to temporary foreign visa workers that have been imported to the U.S. by corporations to replace American workers — rewarding the outsourcers of U.S.
Riggleman, also a supporter of Big Tech’s green card giveaway, co-sponsored legislation that would have created the H-2C visa program — allowing a business to import at least 85,000 non-college-educated foreign workers to fill U.S. construction companies, hospitals, and hotel jobs.
