House GOP legislators defeated the billionaire-backed EAGLE Act outsourcing bill on Wednesday — but only with the help of a breakaway faction of liberal Democrats who rejected the bill’s preference for Indian visa workers.

The remarkable alliance was created by West Coast business groups who used a population of Indian visa workers to disguise a massive outsourcing change — dubbed “Section 7.”

The section threatened to flood the U.S. labor market with a subservient, no-rights workforce that would displace millions of Americans from white-collar and blue-collar jobs.

The giveaway died without a vote when Democratic leaders withdrew the bill once they recognized they would lose on the House floor.


Thanks to everyone who called their member of Congress to oppose this awful bill!
