Here’s the Republicans who voted WITH Democrats on the immigration jobs bill today…

As we told you in the other post, House bill HR 1044 passed overwhelmingly in the House, despite being opposed by the Trump administration as well as immigration organizations like NumbersUSA and FAIR.

The roll call is out and here’s who voted with Democrats on this bill. I would list them here but honestly it’s just too tedious because there’s just so many of them. 140 to be exact. Check them out at the link. Some of the names might surprise you.

If you don’t see their names on the list above then they voted for it. Like Crenshaw and Jordan, just to name a couple. A lot of familiar names voted against it, but not nearly enough.

In fact with this many Republican votes the House could easily override a Trump veto. It’s up to the Senate to make or break this bill.

If Trump commits to vetoing this bill, the Senate will need 67 votes. If it doesn’t get it, the bill is dead.

But in the unlikely event that Trump decides not to veto it, a simply majority will send this bill to his desk.

  1. Jordon and Crenshaw are real disappointments! Jordan is always on FOX bashing the demonrats and their corruption then he votes with them? He should be ashamed!

    1. They voted “yes” the list above is the “no” votes. Sorry to burst your bubble. :o)

  2. Well my two worthless, republican reps are not on the list that opposed this ridiculous immigration bill. The Chamber of Commerce & big corporations obviously told them how to vote. Very apparent to me that the C of C & corporate America really doesn’t give a crap about American workers, it’s all about there profits & bottom lines. Why the crap would anyone want to get a degree anymore. Sad day for the American worker. :exclamation: :exclamation:

  3. I’d be surprised if Jordan voted yes and Meadows no………..and Meadows voted no. I’ll have to find a way to find out.

    1. Great observation,these two are always on TV together.Must be some likes and dislikes in the Bill for both.

    1. It gives the majority of H-1B visas to those from just 2 countries India and China. The tech industry is the major industry hiring H-1B visa employees. The companies promise them green cards in exchange for working in the US for 5-7 years for much lower wages, in order to get a valuable green card. I understand there is something like 600,000 H-1B holders, along with 300,000 of their family members. I’ve read in the past that the spouses, family members could live in the US, but they were not allowed to work in the US. That changed during the Obama admin. It takes jobs away from American employees, and forces them to work for the same lower wages the foreigners agreed to work for if they want a job.

      Trump has supported a merit based system. This is not that. It only favors China and India.

      1. “This is not that. It only favors China and India.”

        And screws those from other countries.

        1. Yes exactly. From what I understand, Trump didn’t call for a merit based system from only 2 countries. And, this bill doesn’t even recognize anyone outside of those 2 countries mainly. I’m still perplexed at this bill supported by so many R’s which they know reduces wages with whatever American employees they “may” offer jobs to. I’m remembering just not long ago so many were outraged that those in tech, and places like Disney were forcing their American employees to train their foreign replacements or risk losing their severance pay. What in the hel1 happened to change so many R minds?

          1. The Chamber of Commerce is as big of an issue with the Republican Party as the thought of illegal votes is for the Democrat party. That’s why nothing has been done to obey immigration laws or fix the border for over 30 years. Too much to benefit both sides in Washington.

            1. Duckie- There is no question, in my mind, that the COC is from the left, but has filled the coffers of those on the right, in order to push them left. McConnell’s bank account is likely as large as it is mainly because of the COC. No doubt the same COC has also filled the coffers of so many other R’s in order to promote their leftist goals. Unless you have tons of money, you will be defeated. McConnell has supported and funded every squish R, if he believes they will be on his “side.” I’d love to see McConnell defeated in his 2020 Senate run, but how could anyone vote for the radical leftist running against him?

              I’ve long hated the binary system, but the feckless R’s have made that their goal for many many years. Nothing else has replaced it other than Trump’s win.

  5. So what If a few legal and tax paying immigrants get in the right way. We need this kind so that Social Security and Medicare remain solvent in the long run, while boosting the US economy. I am assuming that most of these people have a decent paying job already, we should eliminate visas, and only give out green cards more stringently. That way they don’t get exploited, and I think it actually strengthens the system in the long run

  6. If I hear one of these jokers that voted yes say “America first” ever again I’ll…… :fire: :fire: :fire:

    1. In a neighboring district to me here in VA, the 5th district, which includes the now famous Charlottesville, which has more geography than the state of NJ, I was shocked to find that a Republican won that district in 2018. That Rep. is Denver Reigleman. He was interviewed on local radio a lot by a right leaning radio station out of Cville. Yes that does exist. He made pretty darn clear that he was a Libertarian, and I wasn’t impressed, but his Dem. challenger was what one could consider another Ocasio-Cortez. Even the very very progressive Cville refused to vote for the Ocasio-Cortez knock off. Yet, in my neighboring district Dave Brat lost re-election. 😯

      1. I am staunch follower of right scoop and really disappointed. What happened to the right of companies to hire the talent? What’s next? Force company to hire conservative s only. Don’t see any difference here. What happened to making yourself a valuable employee? IT is a global market and if companies forced to hire from a group of people they simply outsource. That’s the unintended consequence. I am legal immigrant and thought conservatism means let people and companies make best choices for them without influence of government.
        If people thinks h1b are burden on economy just Google average salary and how many on h1b use food stamps.

        Also this bill simply eliminates quotas and gives first come first serve.all these days some one from India has to wait for green card 10 years where as one from Nepal gets in a year.

        1. Vijay123-

          “I am staunch follower of right scoop and really disappointed.”

          This is your first comment here dude. I seriously doubt your are staunch on anything other than Americans being cut out of the job force for those who are willing to drive down wages.

          “If people thinks h1b are burden on economy just Google average salary and how many on h1b use food stamps.”

          You just destroyed your own argument. Thank you

          1. Don’t understand how h1b drive down American wages? H1b jobs are 90% IT industry. In this market if you are GC or Citizen and you can’t get IT job. That is unbelievable.
            If you apply for a job first question they ask is are you Green card or Citizen. If you say no 9out of 10 jobs are out of scope.

            What I was saying is average salary of Indian immigrants is above 90k and Asians 80k.

            Reasons are multifold. Most American kids don’t pursue IT feild. Just look around any college campus and go-to a liberal arts class vs IT class.

            You will understand.

            1. Vijay- You just keep digging your hole deeper. Quit now, before you embarrass yourself further.

      2. Giving them green cards only helps alleviate the problem of them working for lower wages. Once they get the green cards, they are not indentured anymore. Besides, there are such people in my group who have been waiting for green cards for over 10 years.
