WHICH CURRENTLY LACKS THEND RESOURCES TO FULLY COMBAT THE DRUG SMUGGLERS, THE GUN RUNNERS, HUMAN TRAFFICKERS, MONEY LAUNDERERS AND OF ORGANIZED CRIMINALS BI THAT SEEK TO DO HARM TO INNOCENT AMERICANS ALONG OUR BORDER. PAY THE SENATE FIRST PASSED THIS BILL LAST WEEK BY UNANIMOUS CONSENT. AS LAST WEEK’S VOTE ENDED IMPASSE OVER HOW TO PAY FOR THIS PACKAGEILL THAT THAT ALL OF US AGREE NEEDED TO BE PASSED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AT FIRST THE HOUSE PROPOSED SENATE, BORDER SE CURITY BILL BUT WAS NOT FULLY PAID FOR AND THUS WAS B UNACCEPTABLE TO MANY IN THEL, SENATE. E I COLLEAGUES ON THE OTHER SIDE WANTED TO PAY FOR THIS BILL BY DIVERTING CRITICAL FUNDS FROM THE STIMULUS BILL, THE RECOVERY ACT. OR THIS, TOO, WAS UNACCEPTABLE BECAUSE BORDER SECURITY DOES NOTECURITY NEED TO COME AT THE EXPENSE OF CREATING JOBS FOR MILLIONS OF AND AMERICANS. ASTE IMPORTANT AS BORDER SECURITY HIREE AGE IS, WE SHOULD NOT BE TAKING AWAYD OF JOBS FROM FIRE MEN IN BUFFALO AND TEACHERS IN SYRACUSE IN ORDER TO HIRE MORE AGENTS IN EL IREASED PASO. THIS THE WORST KIND OF ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL AND WAS SIMPLY WE AN UNACCEPTABLE WAY TO PAY FOR OR INCREASED BORDER SECURITY. SO INSTEAD OF RAISING THE ULMATELY G DEFICIT, WHICH WE DO NOT DO IN INC THIS BILL, OR DIVERTING VITAL STIMULUS ON THIS, THE SENATE HE ULTIMATELY AGREED TO PAY FOR THE BORDER PACKAGE BY INCREASING FEES ON COMPANIES WHO HIRE THE FOREIGN WORKERS IN A MANNER CONTRARY TO THE ORIGINAL INTENTNIMOUSLY OF THE H-1B VISA PROGRAM. HOUSE AFTER THE SENATE REACHED A TH COMPROMISE AND UNANIMOUSLYE ON APPROVED THE ORDER PACKAGE LASTESDAY. WEEK THE HOUSE APPROVED THE SAME THEE BORDER PACKAGE BY VOICE VOTE ON BECAU THE TUESDAY. REGRETTABLY THE HOUSE WAS NOT ABLE TO SIMPLY PASS THE SENATE B APPROVE BILL BECAUSE ACCORDING TO THE SENATE PACKA HOUSE RULES BECAUSE THE OF SAID THE UNANI C DID NOT ORIGINATED HAD TO BE COLLEUES T APPROVED BY THE HOUSE FIRST BEFORES A SENATE PASSAGE. FINALLY SO I SEEK UNANIMOUS CONSENT OF MY COLLEAGUES TO APPROVE THE THE BORDER SECURITY BILL AND FINALLYSARY PROVIDE PRESIDENT OBAMA AND SECRETARY NAPOLITANO WITH THEE THAT BOOTS ON THE GROUND AND RESOURCES NECESSARY TO COMBATHIS CRIME AND VIOLENCE THAT CURRENTLY EXISTS ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE ORIGINAL CO-SPONSORS OF THIS LEGISLATION. SENATOR McCASKILL, SENATOR OF REID OF NEVADA, SENATOR INOUYE,LI MARY, FEINSTEIN, BINGAMAN, UDALL WOULD OF MEXICO, CASEY, MERKLEY, LINCOLN, YOU LOVE COLORADO, BEGICH AND BURRIS AND I WILL ALSO PARTICULARLY LIKE TO THANKND SENATOR KAFEEL AND MCKAY AND FOREING JOINING AS CO-SPONSORS PRIOR TO THAT ORIGINAL APPROVAL AND RECOGNIZE THIS BILL AS BEING SIGNIFICANT FOR BORDER SECURITY MENT, LEGISLATION. IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING A VITAL RESOURCES FOR SECURING OURECAUSE I SOUTHERN BORDER ALL OF WHICH IATH WILL DETAIL IN A MOMENT, ABS MR. PRESIDENT, THIS BILL ISTO HAVE ENORMOUSLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE ITTHE RE WILL CLEAR THE PATH FOR ENTIR RESTARTING THE BIPARTISAN DISCUSSIONS WE ABSOLUTELY NEED WE TO HAVE ON HOW BEST TO RESTORE B THE RULE OF LAW TO OUR ENTIRE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. ALTHOUGH WE ALL AGREE THEY MUST THE SECURE OUR BORDERS, WE WILLWRONG WH NEVER FULLY RESOLVE THE PROBLEM HOUSE OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION UNTIL WE C FIX THOME ENTIRETY OF WHAT IS IN WRONG WITH OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. A OF BUT THOSE OF US WHO CURRENTLYROUND A SUPPORTS COMPREHENSIVE REFORM ALSO BELIEVE IN PROVIDING ALL OF RECEIVED T THE RESOURCES OUR EXPERTS ON THE GROUND ARE TELLING US THE NEED KNOW THAT TO SECURE THE BORDER RIGHT NOW. M THAT’S WHY THIS BILL HAS GANG RECEIVED THE SUPPORT OF THE T ENTIRE SET. WE KNOW THAT KEEPING OUR BORDER SAFE FROM DANGEROUS GANGCONFIDENCE T MEMBERS, DEALERS AND HUMAN T TRAFFICKERS TO RESTORING PUBLICTOWA CONFIDENCE OF THE ENTIRETY OF THE FOCUS WITH REGARD TO LAWLESS IMMIGRATION POLICY IS GEARED COMME TOWARDS RESTORING TO WHAT HAS NATANO F BEEN A LAWLESS SYSTEM IN THE PAST. THIS THAT’S WHY I HAVE TO COMMEND THE T PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY NEED NAPOLITANO FOR THEIR TEARLESS WORK AND ADVOCATING FOR THE PASSAGE OF THIS PACKAGE TO GIVE OUR PEOPLE ON THE GROUND THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO SECURE THE BORDER. HERE ARE ALSO OF VITAL RESOURCES OUR BORDER SECURITY PACKAGE WILL FIRS WE PROVIDE. FIRST, WE PROVIDE OVER $250 MILLION TO HIRE 1,000 NEW BORDER PATROL AGENTS AND 500 SOUTHERN OFFICERS TO PERMANENTLY PATROLLED THEGE SOUTHERN BORDER. EPLOYED THESE AGENTS WILL FORM A STRIKE BO FORCE THAT WILL BE DEPLOYED IN AT A DIFFERENT ARNYEAS OF THE SOUTHWEST OUR BORDER DEPENDENT WHERE THE NEED WAYHERE IS GREATEST IN IN A PARTICULARINUOUS MOMENT. WE’LL FITENALLY HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO DEPLOY OURIN MANPOWER IN A WAY WHERE WE CAN SMUGGLERS CONTINUOUSLY AND IMMEDIATELY WE WIL CHANGE OUR TACTICS TO RESPOND TO DEPLOY CHANGES IN THE TACTICS OFE UNMAN SMUGGLERS ANDNE TRAFFICKERS. SECOND, WE WILL PROVIDE FUNDING TO DEPLOY MORE UNMANNED DRONES TO FLY ALONG OUR SOUTHERN BORDER TO PROVIDE AGENTS OFF THE GROUND WITH TIME INFORMATION ON ON WALL TH FULL BOREYDER CROSSINGS. WE ARE CURRENTLY DEPLOYED IN BOR SEVEN OF THESE UNMANNED DRONES ON THE BORDER. THEY HAVE PROVEN TO BE EFFECTIVE BECAUSE THEY PROVIDE THE BORDERLARGER PATROL AGENTS WITH VAST FORCE MULTIPLICATION THROUGH THEIR ABILITY TO IDENTIFY THE SAMEON LOCATIONS OF T LARGER GROUPS THATS DISPERSE INTO SMALLER GROUPSOVER A UPON ACCOUNT ENCOUNTERING BORDER SEGME PATROL AGENTS ON THE GROUND. THESE ADDITIONAL DRONES WILL OTRWISE HELP US GAINWOUL OPERATIONAL CONTROL OVER MUCH LARGER SOUTHERN BORDER TECH THAN WE OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE CONTROLLED BECAUSE THE PROVIDE MILES OF SURVEILLANCE CAPABILITYUNDS THAT IS TECHNOLOGICALLY CAPABILITI IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHESIEVE THROUGH OTHER MEANS. NFORCE FLORIDA, WEME WILL PROVIDE FUNDSISSUE TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATIONS CAPABILITIES BETWEEN FEDERAL BORDER ENFORCEMENT AGENTS AND STATE AND LOCAL LAW OFFICERSD ALONG THE BORDER. COMMUNICATE THE I ISSUE HERE IS CRIME. ION POS OFFICERS WITH THE DIFFERENT AREAS OF EXPERTISE ANDFFICKING RINGS JURISDICTION NEED TO BE ABLE TOOCAL COMMUNICATE IN ORDER TO HAVE THE BEST INFORMATION POSSIBLE TOPABILITIL BREAK UP SMUGGLING AND TRAFFICKING RINGS IN BED INPROSEC OF LOCAL COMMUNITIES. RAFFIC THESE IMPROVED COMMUNICATION CAPABILITIES WILL LEAD TO OUR COUNTLESS MORE APPREHENSIONS AND BEGINS PROSECUTIONS OF BIG-TIME SMUGGLERS AND TRAFFICKERS. WITH AS AN EXAMPLE OF THE BORDER PATROL SUDDENLY BEGINS INROVIDE COUNTERING THE SURGE OF ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSERS FROM EL SALVADOR WE C WITH IDENTICAL TATTOOS ON THEIR S ARM IT’S IMPOSSIBLE THE PROVIDEHE THIS INFORMATION TO STATE AND THIS LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ON THE GROUND SO WE CAN IMMEDIATELY HELP U BEGIN SHARING INTELLIGENCE TO DETERMINE WHETHER INDIVIDUALS WITH THIS DESCRIPTION HAVE BEEN ARR ESTED. THIS COORDINATION WILL HELP US DETERMINE THE EXACT CRIMINAL C INTENT OF THIS GROUP AND THEIRCONSTR METHOD OF OPERATION SO THEY CAN BERA EFFECTIVELY COMBAT IT. WE WILL PROVIDE FUNDS TO CONSTRUCT FORWARD OPERATING THAN BASIS FOR THE BORDER PATROL TOE USE THE CORRECTLY LOCATED ON THE A BORDER ITSELF RATHER THAN BORDER AND HUNDREDS OF MILES AWAY. IT IS INEFFICIENT FOR THE BORDER PATROL APPREHENDED THEN VEGETABLES ALONG THE BORDER AND F THEN HAVE TO DRIVE HOURS TO A BASES PLACE THAT PERSON IN DETENTION CR — TO PLACE THE PERSON IN DETENTION IN A FARAWAY BASE. THAT THESE FORWARD OPERATING BASE IS GROUND PROVIDE LOCATIONS MUCH CLOSER TOE THE BORDER. COMBATI WHERE THE DETAINEES CAN BEILLEGAL A BROUGHT FOR PROCESSING SO AGEROVIDE AGENTS ON THE GROUND CAN SPEND A MORE TIME COMBATING ILLEGALEMENT ACTIVITY ON T THE BORDER. FIFTH, WE WILL PROVIDE FUNDS FORG OUR IMMIGRATION CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENTT TO CONDUCT INVESTIGATIONS OF THE RES DRUG RUNNERS, MONEY LAUNDERERS AND HUMAN TRAFFICKERS ALONG THE BORDER. IT’S ALMOSTT IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND OUT THE RESOURCES AND THE USES OF SMUGGLING AND TRAFFICKINGT NEE FUNDS WITHOUT STRONG PLARS INTELLIGENCE AND INVESTIGATIONRE CAPABILITIES. THIS BILL WILL PROVIDE I.C.E. WITH RESOURCES IT NEEDS TO HUNTN DOWN THE MAJOR PLAYERS IN THE CARTEL’S RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE ILLEGALITIES ON THE SOUTHERN BORDER. FINALLY, WE WILL PROVIDE OVERBE 200 MILLION TO INCREASE THEOSECUTOR A NUMBER OF THE ATF, DEA AND FBI AGENTS ON THE BORDER TO BOLSTER THE NUMBER OF PROSECUTORS AND COURT RESOURCES ALONG THE BORDER SO THAT THE WRONGDOERS CAN BE DRU IMMEDIATELY BROUGHT TO JUSTICE. WE WILL DRAMATICALLY REDUCE THEERICAN PE CAN INCIDENCE OF ILLEGAL SMUGGLING OF GUNS AND DRUGS, CURRENCY THE ALONG THE BORDERS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN FEEL FARRESIDE SAFER LIVING IN OUR BORDER COMMUNITIES THAN THEY DO TODAY. AND THE BEST PART OF THIS BORDER DEFIT PACKAGE, MR. PRESIDENT, IS THAT. IT IS FULLY PAID FOR AND IT DOES NOT INCREASE THE DEFICIT BY AYIELD A SINGLE PENNY. IN ACTUALITY THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE, THE CBO DETERMINED THE BILL WILL YIELD ALY P DIRECT SAVINGS OF TAX PAYERS OF COMPA $50 MILLION. THE EMERGENCY BORDER FUNDS WE HIRE ARE PASSING TODAY ARE FULLY PAID CERTAIN FOR BY ASSESSING FEES ON CERTAIN TYPES OF COMPANIES WHO HIRET FOREIGN WORKERS USING CERTAIN TYPES OF VISAS IN A WAY THAT EVERY CONGRESS DID NOT INTEND. I WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE DOING IN THIS BILL LITTLE FURTHER BECAUSE I WANT EVERYONE I TO CLEARLY UNDERSTAND HOW THESE THE OFFSETS ARE DESIGNED. THERE’S BEEN SOME DISCUSSIONHE CONS ABOUT THIS PROPOSAL AND I THINK WE OUGHT TO LEAVE IT ON THE TABLE AND EXPLAIN IT CLEARLY. IN 1990 THAT CONGRESS REALIZED THE WORLD WAS CHANGING RAPIDLYO AND THAT TECHNOLOGICAL TECH INNOVATIONS LIKENOLO THE INTERNET WERE CREATING A HIGH DEMAND INEATED THE THE UNITED STATES FOR HIGH-TECH WORKERS TO CREATE TECHNOLOGIESLOYE AND PRSRODUCTS. SO CONSEQUENTLY CONGRESS CREATED SPECIAL THE H-1B VISA PROGRAM TO ALLOW U.S. EMPLOYERS TO HIRE FOREIGNPANIES THA USE TECH WORKERS AND SPECIALODAY CIRCUMSTANCES WHEN THEY COULDN’T FIND AN AMERICAN CITIZENRESS QUALIFIED. MANY OF THE COMPANIES TO USESE THIS PROGRAM TODAY ARE USING THEOSOFT PROGRAM IN EXACTLY THE WAY CONGRESS INTENDED. THAT IS THESE COMPANIES AND STUDTS E MICROSOFT AND IBM AND INTEL ARE O HIRING BRIGHT STUDENTS EDUCATED IN OUR AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES TO WORK IN THE U.S. FOR SIX OR SEVEN YEARS TO INVENT NEW ME PRODUCT LINES AND TECHNOLOGIES SO THAT MICROSOFT, IBM AND INTEL EXP CAN SELL MORE PRODUCTS TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC AND HIRE MORE COMPANIES AMERICAN WORKERS. D WORK THEN AT THERE EXPIRATION OF THE H-1B VISA PERIOD THESE COMPANIES OFTEN APPLY FOR THESE TALENTED WORKERS TO EARN GREEN CARDS AND GOO STAY WITH THE COMPANY. FOR T WHEN THE H-1B VISA PROGRAM IS T USED IN THIS MANNER IT’S A GOODCAN PEO WHO PROGRAM FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED. AND IT’S GOOD FOR THE COMPANY. IT’S GOOD FOR THE WORKER AND IT’S GOOD FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO BENEFIT FROM THE PRODUCTS AND JOBS CREATED BY THE INNOVATION OF THE H-1B VISA PROGRAM — THE H-1B VISA HOLDER. EVERY DAY COMPANIES LIKE ORACLE H1B AND CISCO AND APPLE AND OTHERSTHE USE THE H-1B VISA PROGRAM IN THE EXTRACT WE I DESCRIBED AND THE ELOIT PROGRAM HAS GREATLY BENEFITED THE COUNTRY. BUT RECENTLY SOME COMPANIES DECIDED TO EXPLOIT AN UNINTENDED LOOPHOLE IN THE PROGRAM TO USET WITH T THE PROGRAM IN A HEWAY THAT MANY IN CONGRERESS INCLUDING MYSELF DO MAKE NOT BELIEVE IS CONSISTENT WITH THE PROGRAM’S INTENT. RATHER THAN BE A COMPANY THAT CREAT MAKES SOMETHING OR PROVIDES A SERVICE AND SIMPLY NEEDS TORE BRING A TALENTED WORKERS AND TO WE HELP IN AVEDA AND CREATE NEW PRODUCTS AND TECHNOLOGIES COME THESE OTHER COMPANIES AREB PROGRAAS ESSENTIALLY CREATINGHESE MULTINATIONAL AGENCIES THAT WERE NEVER CONTEMPLATED WHEN THE H-1BKE MICROSO PROGRAM WAS CREATED. THE BUSINESS MODEL OF THESEODEL NEWER COMPANIES IS NOT TO MAKE FIR B ANY NEW PRODUCT OR TECHNOLOGYS LIKE MICROSOFT OR APPLE DOES. LS INSTEAD, THE BUSINESS MODEL IS UNTERPAR TOTS FIRST BRING THE FOREIGN WORKERS INTO THE UNITED STATES IN WILLINGXC TO ACCEPT LESS PAY THAN THEIR AMERICAN COUNTERPARTS. NUMBER TWO, PLEASE THE WORKERS AND TO OTHER COMPANIES IN EXCHANGE FOR CONSULTING FEES. AND NUMBER THREE, TRANSFER THENIES WORKERS FROM COMPANY TO COMPANYO THEN TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS FROM THE PROVI PLACEMENTDE FEES. IN OTHER WORDS, THESE COMPANIESNEED ARE PETITIONING FOR THE WORKERS SIMPLY TO THEN TURN AROUND AND WORD PROVIDE THE SAME WORKERS TO OTHER COMPANIES WHO NEED CHEAPOME LABOR FOR VARIOUS SHORT-TERMHIN PROJECTS. SC DON’T TAKE MY WORD FOR IOPT. IF YOU LOOK AT THE MARKETING MATERIAL OF SOME OF THE COMPANIES THAT FALL IN THE SCOPEND COVERED BY TODAY’S LEGISLATION,GE IS THE MATERIALS BOAST ABOUT,ONDUCT W QUOTE, THEY’RE OUTSOURCING EXPERTISE AND SAY THAT THEIRTRAGE. TH ADVANTAGES AND ABILITY TO WH IS, CONDUCT WHAT THEY CALL LABOR ARBITRAGED, LABOR ARBITRAGED,NVIRONME THEY SAY WHICH IS IN THEIR OWN USED WORDS TRANSFERRING WORK FUNCTIONS TO A LOWER COST CREAT ENVIRONMENT FOR INCREASEDIDE SAVINGS. THE BUSINESS MODEL USED BY THESE COMPANIES WITHIN THE UNITEDTATION OF STATES ISTH CREATING THREEROGRAM NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS. FIRST IT IS RUINING THEUR REPUTATION OF THE H-1B PROGRAMO THAT IS OVERWHELMINGLY USED BY H1B GOOD ACTORS AND BENEFICIAL PURPOSES. SOME OF OUR COLLEAGUES HAVE LEGISLATION TO CURTAIL H-1B ITE BECAUSE THESE TYPES, OF ABUSES. LREA SECONDDY ACCORDING TO THE ECONOMIC POLICY INSTITUTE IS LEARNING THE WAGES FOR AMERICAN TECHNICAL WORKERS ALREADY IN THEHN MARKETPLACE AND FAIR, IT’S ALSOING DISCOURAGING MANY OF OURFOR SMARTEST STUDENTS FROM ENTERING THEWO TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY IN THE FIRST PLACE. STUDENTS CAN SEE THAT PAYING WITH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR ADVANCED SCHOOLING IS NOTS WORTH THE COST WHEN THE MARKETEIGN EDUCA IS BEING FLOODED WITH FOREIGN TO TEMPORARY WORKERS WILLING TO DO THE TECHNICAL WORK FOR THE FAR THE COST LESS PAY BECAUSE THE EDUCATION WAS CHEAPER AND THE INTENT TO MOVE BACK HOME AND THE VISA EXPIRES TO A COUNTRY WHERE THE COST OF LIVING IS FAR LESS OF EXPENSIVE. EN THISSI TYPE OF USE OF THE H-1B VISA PROGRAM WILL BE ADDRESSED TO AS PART OF COMPREHENSIVE REFORM AND IS LIKELY GOING TO BE SYSTEM T DRAMATICALLY RESTRICTED W CERTAINLY IF I HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT AND WE WILL BE REFORMING THE BUIMMIGRATION SYSTEMCOUNTLES TO ENCOURAGE THE BEST AND BUT BRIGHTEST TO COME TO THE UNITED STATES AND CREATE TECHNOLOGIES AND BUSINESSES THAT WILL EMPLOY COUNTLESS AMERICAN WORKERS BUT DISCOURAGE BUSINESS FROM USING IMMIGRATION LAWS AS A MEANS TOSAL OBTAIN TEMPORARY AND LESS EXPENSIVE FOREIGN LABOR D TO ON REPLACE CAPABLE WORKERS. AND LET ME SAY OUR PROPOSAL HERE THE EXTRA DUTY ONLY GOES ON COMPANIES MORE THAN 50% FOREIGN WORKERS AND 50% H-1B WORKERS. THE ON THE COMPANY’S 50% H-1BOM WHAT WE WORKERS ARE THOSE JUST DOING THE POLICY I PROPOSED. OMPANIES CERTAINLY FAR FROM WHAT WE EVER WAYS, ENVISIONED WHEN THE H-1B PAST AND SO I SAY TO THOSE COMPANIES IF YOU DON’T CHANGE YOUR WAYS, YOU SHOULDN’T BE DOING WHEN YOU ARE DOING AND THIS DUTY ISABELED APPROPRIATE FOR THAT PURPOSE. SHOPS I DO WANT TO CLARIFY A PREVIOUS MISCHARACTERIZATION OF THE I FIRM’S WHERE I LABELED THEM CHOPD THAT’S SHOPS. THE STATEMENT WAS INCORRECT ANDHAT THEY I WISH TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. IN THE TECHNICAL INDUSTRY THE FIRMS ARE KNOWN AS BODY SHOPS AND THAT IS WHAT I SHOULD HAVE SAID AND THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE. WHILE I STRONGLY OPPOSE THE MANNER IN WHICH THE FIRMS AREUNFORTUNAT USING THE H-1B TO ACCOMPLISH OBJECTIVES CONGRESS NEVER INTENDED, IT WOULD BE PURPO O UNFORTUNATE IF ANYONE CONCLUDE NOT FROM MY EARMARKS THESE OR ENGAGING IN ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR. BUT I ALSO WANT TO MAKE CLEAR ARTICLE THAT THE PURSPOSE OF THE FEE ISE AFFECD NOT TO TARGET BUSINESSES FROM ANY PARTICULAR COUNTRY. MANY NEWS ARTICLES REPORTED THE ONLY COMPANIES THAT WILL BETHIS AFFECTED BY THE FI ARE COMPANIES BASED IN INDIA AND THE FACTO I. T PURPOSE OF THE LEGISLATION MUSTOMPANIES BE TO TARGET THE I.T. COS. IT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE THE PURPOSE IS TO TARGET INDIAN COMPANIES. WE ARE RAISING THE FEES FOR BUSINESSES WHO USE THE VISA TO DO THINGS THAT ARE CONTRARY TO WILL BE THE PROGRAMS OF ORIGINAL INTENT AND THAT WILL BE ON ANY COMPANY FROM ANY COUNTRY THAT DOES IT. THROUGHHE THEY WILL BE MORE THAN 50 P WORORKERS WHO CONTINUE TO EMPLOYNYONE — MORE THAN 50% OF THEIR EMPLOYEES THROUGH THE PROGRAM. THAT WAS NEVER EVEN ON ANY, ANYTHING CLOSE TO ANY MISFUD WHEN H-1B WAS PASSED. CONGRESS DOES NOT WANT THE H-1B PROGRAM TO BE A VEHICLE FORR GREETING MULTINATIONAL TEMP ENTE AGENCIES WHERE WORKERS DOR NOT KNOW WHAT PROJECTS THEY WILL BEN THE WORKING ON OR WHAT CITIES THEY WILL BE WORKING IN WHEN THEY IF Y’RE ENTER THE COUNTRY. THE FEE IS BASED UPON THE BUSINESS MODEL OF THE COMPANY, NOT THE LOCATION OF THE COMPANY. D IF YOU ARE USING THE H-1B TO ENERVATE PRODUCTS ANDY TECHNOLOGIES THAT IS A GOOD THING REGARDLESS WHETHER THESING COMPANY WAS ORIGINALLY FOUNDED IN INDIA, IRELAND OR INDIANA. BUT IF YOU ARE USING THE H-1B TO RUNTEMP A GLORIFIED INTERNATIONAL IN TEMP AGENCY FOR TEMP WORKERS AND COLL CONTRAVENTION OF THEEAGU SPIRITED PROGRAM ARE THE ADD MYT COLLEAGUES BELIEVE YOU SHOULD HAVE TO PAY A HIGH YOUR FEET TO US OF ENSURE THAT AMERICAN WORKERS AREHAT NOT LOSING THEIR JOBS BECAUSE OFNTEMPLATED. THE UNINTENDED USE OF THE VISASSE PROGRAM THAT WERE NEVER CONTEMPLATED AND THIS BELIEF IS CONSISTENT WHETHER THE COMPANY USES THE PRACTICES THAT WAS FOUNDED IN BANGALORE, BEIJING OR BOSTON. RAISING THE FEES FOR COMPANIES WOR HIRING MORE THAN 50% OF WORK TWO FORCE THROUGH THE VISA COMPLEXS IS TOO IMPORTANT GOALS. FIRST WILL PROVIDE THE NECESSARYDDING TO THE FUNDS TO SECURE THE BORDERND, IT WITHOUT RAISING TAXES OR ADDINGERS TO S THE DEFICIT. SECOND, IT WILL LEVEL THE CHEAP PLAYING FIELD FOR AMERICAN WORKERS SO THEY DON’T LOSE OUTAND LET ON GOOD JOBS HERE IN AMERICA BECAUSE IT IS CHEAPER TO BRING IM IN A BURGER THEN HIRE AN AMERICAN WORKER. AND LE T ME TELL YOU WHAT OBJECT A OF FOLKS AROUND THE WORLD AREJOURNAL” SAYING THAT THE IMPACT OF THE INCREASE. ON AUGUST 6, 2010 WALL STREET JOURNAL ARTICLE THE CEO OF A BILL BASE OFFSHORE ADVISORY-QUOTE CONSULTANT FIRM TOLD THE JOURNALO OF THE BILL WOULD, QUOTE, E ACCELERATE THE FIRMS PLANNING TO HIRE MORE AMERICAN-BORN WORKERS IN THE U.S.. JAY WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT?OMPANY, AUGUST 7, 2010 ECONOMIC TIMES ARTRAGE ARTICLE, THE CEO OF A TOPEL COMPANY SAID THIS BILL WHAT A TH’S WHAT RISE W COST ARBITRAGE AND CAUSE AS CHANGE IN THE OPERATION MODEL OF ARE INDIAN OFFSHORE PROVIDERS. THAT’S WHAT WEBR WANT. THE LEADERS OF THE BUSINESSHERE IN MODEL ARE AGREEING THE BILL WILLAT MEA MAKE IT MONSRE EXPENSIVE TO BRING THE FOREIGN WORKERS TO COMPETE WITH AMERICAN TECH WORKERS FOR AGAIN. JOBS IN AMERICA. THAT MEANS THE COMPANIES ARES B GOING TO HAVE TO STARTIL TO HIGHER RES U.S. TECHNICAL WORKERS AGAIN. SO, MR. PRESIDENT, THIS BILL IS HI-PAYING AM NOT ONLY THE RESPONSIBLE BORDER F SECURITY BILINL IT HAS THE WILLWAO BE ADVANTAGE OF CREATING MORE HIGH-PAYING AMERICAN JOBS. FINALLY, MR. PRESIDENT, I WANTURE TO BE CLEAR ABOUT ONE OTHER THING. E RULE O EVEN THOUGH PASSING THIS BILL WILL SECURE OUR BORDER, I AGAIN SAY THE ONLY WAY TO FULLYSIVE RESTORE THE RULE OF LAW TO OURON ENTIRE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM IS BY PASSING COMPREHENSIVE REFORM, I IMMIGRATION REFORM. PEATED IN MY MANY MEETINGS WITH FOLKS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ALTAR AB TO GAIN THEIR SUPPORT FOR COMPREHENSIVE REFORM IHEY WOULD REPEATEDLY HEARD THEM SAY ONCEO WE SHOWED WE WERE SERIOUS ABOUT ALL OF PASSING THE BORDER SECURITY LEGISLATION THEY WOULD BE TOTAKE ABO BEGIN WORKING WITH US TO FIX ALL THE OTHER ASPECTS OF THE BROKEN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. LE BUT DOMESTIC OUT OF OUR ENTIRERY IMMIGRATION SYSTEM IS BROKEN. RY IT IS A O PATIENT THAT NEEDS CUR QUADRUPLE BYPASS SURGERY. AILME A SINGLE BYPASS SURGERY OF ENA BORDER SECURITY ALONE IS IMPORTANT BUT NOT ENOUGH TO CURENET TO THE AILMENT. WE ALSO NEED TO ENACT TOUGH AND SMART IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WILL END THE JOBS MAGNET TO THE UNITED STATES BY REQUIRING THAT ALL LEGAL WORKERS SHOW A SECURE SOCIAL SECURITY CARD PRIOR TO OF ATTAINING THE JOB, THE VISAWN OVERSTATE FOR THE T ROBUST INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT AND REQUIRE ALL PERSONS ON LAWFULLY HERE MAKE THEIR PRESENCE KNOWN TO USE THAT BY REGISTERING WITH THE FEDERALG GOVERNMENT AND THEN EITHER GETTING RIGHT WITH THE LAW WERE LEAVING THE COUNTRY. CORESS A IT IS MY HOPE THE BILL WE ARE PASSING TODAY WILL BREAK THE DEADLOCK THAT HAS EXISTED IN CONGRESS AND WILL CLEAR THE PATH CAN TO FINALLY RESUME BIPARTISAN NEGOTIATIONS AND GOOD FAITH ON REFORMING OUR BROKEN IMMIGRATIONEERIOUS SYSTEM AND I INTEND TO DO SERUS EVERYTHING I CAN’T MAKE FUN OF A BUT NEGOTIATIONS CAN HAPPEN OUT OF THIN AIR. EAGUES IT WILL TAKE SERIOUS REPUBLICANS WORKING WITH SERIOUS DEMOCRATS TO GET THIS DONE AND I URGE MY THIS COLLEAGUES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE S OF OIL TO JOIN THIS IMPORTANT OUR TASK. WITH THE BILL’SUE PASSAGE TODAY AISLE WE’VE CLEARLY SHOW WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT SECURING OUR NATION’S BORDER. IT’S TIME FOR OUR COLLEAGUES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE OGLE TO JULY IT’S AND FIXING OUR ENTIRE BROKEN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. WE URGE FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM CANNOT BE OVERSTATED BECAUSE IT IS SO OVERDUE. IT TIME FOR EXCUSES IS NOW OVER. THE TIME TO GET TO WORK IS
