Sen. David Purdue folded, and it is now likely to be fast-tracked through the Senate.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), aided by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and his Big Tech funders, has been championing legislation that would open up the flood gates to third-world immigrants, primarily from India, to receive green cards and take jobs from American-born workers.
While S. 386 stalled last week after it was blocked by Sen. David Purdue (R-GA), Purdue has since folded and the legislation is now expected to pass through the Senate with unanimous consent on Thursday.
Georgia Sen. David Perdue says he no longer objects to Sen. Lee’s green card bill: “I supported his bill. It’s consistent with what the White House has been working on. We just had some nuances in the language with regard to rural nurses and basically we worked that out.”

With Republicans neutered because their subservience to special interests such as the Koch network, the most likely opposition to the legislation’s passage comes from Democrats like Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who believe S. 386 is unfair because it primarily benefits Indians while hurting other immigrants.
