The United States Chamber of Commerce is cheering on President Joe Biden’s expansion of a visa program set to deliver more foreign competition against Americans, while cutting costs for the nation’s largest multinational corporations.
As Breitbart first reported, “Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the expansion of the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program whereby corporations like Amazon, Facebook, and BlackRock hire foreign students over American STEM graduates at a 15 percent discount by avoiding tens of billions in FICA taxes.”
The Chamber of Commerce, representing corporate special interests, cheered this move as “one of a series of key actions needed to address the workforce shortage crisis”. “We welcome the Biden administration’s announcement on international STEM talent.”
Much more needs to be done to update and modernize our nation’s immigration system, and those types of changes require congressional action. The Chamber will continue to push Congress and the White House to work together and address these pressing issues…”
In 2020, Amazon ranked as the top outsourcer to foreign students for American jobs, followed by Apple, BlackRock, Facebook, Microsoft, Accenture, Oracle, Bank of America, Capgemini, Cognizant, Deloitte, Citigroup, eBay, Google, Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Infosys, JP Morgan, McKinsey & Company, Tata Consultancy Services, Wayfair, and Yahoo, among others.
These corporations are potentially taking jobs away from STEM graduates in America. These are the same multinational corporations that agitate for mass immigration as a form of cheap labor. In other words, these companies and big business put their own perceived financial interests ahead of America.
