Fourteen senators had the courage to stand up to the latest expansion
of H-1b visas. What is interesting to me as VDARE.COM`s house progressive
is that most of them were Democrats - and that as a group their tendency to support immigration restriction was barely greater than the congressional average:
Notably absent from the list was Republican Senator Lamar Alexander.
In 2002 he raised H-1b expansion as a campaign issue.
Tennessee Candidate for Senator Lamar Alexander made a video that strongly criticizes H-1B and attacks his opponent, Ed Bryant, for voting for H-1B. Lamar said that, "On May 20, 1998, Ed Bryant voted to allow U.S. companies to lay-off American workers to hire foreign workers."[Lamar Alexander Attacks H-1B on Video 8/6/2002 H-1B News, Zazona.com]
Now, in 2005, Alexander turned around and did the same thing - and in his case he can`t plead ignorance.
What is it about the Senate that turns men into cowards, whores and hypocrites? Sounds to me like the US needs serious election reform and publicly funded elections
