Morgan Griffith, Phil Roe Betray American Workers
On July 10, 2019 Mr. Griffith voted with 139 other Republicans and 224 Democrats on a massive Green Card program to bring in millions of replacement tech workers and their families.
Deceptively called "Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants" is unfair to high skill American workers. This could bring 3 million outsourcing workers from India alone over 10 years. This includes a new deluge of cheap foreign labor across the economy. The country already imports 3 million immigrants, job replacement visa holders, and illegal aliens every year as it is.
To quote Neil Munro 6 Jun 2019:
"Each year, roughly four million young Americans join the workforce after graduating from high school or university.
But the federal government then imports about 1.1 million legal immigrants and refreshes a resident population of roughly 1.5 million white-collar visa workers — including approximately one million H-1B workers — and approximately 500,000 blue-collar visa workers.
The government also prints out more than one million work permits for foreigners, tolerates about eight million illegal workers, and does not punish companies for employing the hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants who sneak across the border or overstay their legal visas each year."

DEMOCRATIC yes 224, No 8
REPUBLICAN yes 140, No 57
Why would a Congressman from an impoverished region of Virginia vote for such nonsense? He needs to answer to Southwest Virginia voters. He will never get my vote again.
Congressman Phil Roe representing 1st District of Tennessee (across the state line) also voted for replacement workers.
Republicans in general at the behest of their Chamber of Commerce masters have worked for years to hollow out our communities and destroy millions of jobs. Then what isn't sent to Mexico and China goes to immigrants and illegal aliens.
Wages in Virginia meat packing have fallen by 50% since the 1970s and one can't get a job unless they speak Spanish.
