Senate Needs to Protect American Workers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 2, 2000

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Lamar Smith released the following statement in response to 
reports that the Senate is likely to soon pass an H-1B bill.

"I am disappointed that the Senate would increase the number of foreign high tech workers 
without including any safeguards for American workers:"

"A company should not hire a foreign worker after laying off an American worker to do the 
same job. A company should make a good faith effort to recruit a U.S. worker before hiring 
a foreign worker. And, it should pay a foreign worker at least the salary that American 
students fresh out of college are making. Foreign workers should not undercut 
American wages."

"Progress on the H-1B bill in the House remains dependent upon de-linking the bill from an 
amnesty for illegal aliens."
