McMorris Rodgers Met with Microsoft CEO on Day She Revealed August Amnesty Goal
On the day that Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) told a local newspaper that she believed amnesty legislation could be brought to the floor by August, she met with Satya Nadella, the new CEO of Microsoft.
“I believe there is a path that we get a bill on the floor by August,” House GOP Conference Chair McMorris Rodgers said last Friday. “We’re going to have to push that this is a legal status, not amnesty."
That same day, she tweeted a photo of herself with Nadella from her verified @cathymcmorris Twitter account.
Microsoft, along with other high-tech companies like Facebook and Google, has aggressively lobbied Congress and the Obama administration for more H1-B visas, even though numerous studies have debunked the notion that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers.
