Whom Do Our Representatives Represent?

By John Miano on May 31, 2019

The hilarious aspect of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax is that foreign influence on our government is often out in the open for all to see.

The latest example comes from California congresswomen Anna Eshoo and Zoe Lofgren.

In 2015, President Obama permitted certain spouses of H-1B guestworkers (on H-4 visas) to work as well. That regulation has been challenged in court, and the Trump administration has been saying for months that it planned to end these unlawful work authorizations.

Eshoo and Lofgren have introduced legislation to prevent the work authorizations for H-1B spouses from ending.

For their efforts, Eshoo and Lofgren are being lauded in the Indian press. See here, here, here, and here.

So far, as I write this, no American news outlet has found the Eshoo and Lofgren's press release worthy of coverage.

Now put this legislation in perspective. When the University of California was replacing American employees with H-1B workers or when Southern California Edison replaced hundreds of Americans with H-1B workers did Eshoo or Lofgren rush to introduce legislation to ban such replacements, which directly affected their own state's residents?

Of course not. It's almost as if Eshoo and Lofgren do not work for Americans citizens.

But when the spouses of those foreign workers replacing Americans are threatened with losing their jobs, Eshoo and Lofgren spring into action. Should these members of Congress have registered as foreign agents?

Where's Robert Mueller when he is actually needed?
