NOT A MINUTE TO WASTE, FRIENDS,
High inside congressional sources have just informed our Capitol Hill Team that Sen. Cornyn (R-TX) appears to be on the edge of negotiating an agreement to allow him to slip a bill through the Senate (maybe tonight -- maybe tomorrow) that would entail a gigantic increase in 3-year H-1B visas for tech and other skilled foreign workers and more than a doubling of annual permanent employment-based green cards!
I warned all of you about this last week. Thanks to all who have been faxing and calling abou this.
ONLY PHONE CALLS CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE AT THIS MOMENT.
I am sending this to only those of you who live in a state of a Senator whom we usually can count on as a friend of American workers, particularly Americans working in the tech and engineering fields.
HERE ARE THE SENATORS WHO NEED CALLS RIGHT NOW TO ASK THEM TO PROTECT US FROM THE CORNYN "SNEAK PASS" (notice that this is a bi-partisan groups of pro-worker stalwarts):
Ben Nelson (D-NE)
WHAT TO SAY
"Sen. XXXX has usually been one of the best friends of American workers against unfair foreign worker competition.
"I urge you to make sure that he/she knows about what Sen. Cornyn is trying to do.
"Can you promise me that Sen. XXXX will watch the floor proceedings and get to the floor in time to block any unanimous consent for any bill this week that would increase the importation of foreign workers?"
Obviously, put this into your own words. Use information from the background provided below.
Be exceedingly courteous. You are talking to an office of a friend. Make it clear that you admire this Senator's past immigration actions to protect American workers.
Hopefully, your Senator will be getting a lot of calls. The purpose is not to harrass but to make sure the staff knows how serious his/her constituents take the threat.
