Joe Kent made the following statement:

I’m honored to join the Washington Alliance of Technology Workers case with four patriotic congressmen. The purpose of this case is to end the Post-completion Optional Practical Training loophole that allowed immigrants on student visas to be employed by companies here in the United States after these students have completed their studies. Big business has exploited this program to employ untold numbers of foreigners and take jobs away from American citizens.

With the cost of living rising exponentially, it is immoral for our federal government to permit multinational corporations to employ young foreign workers. Meanwhile, our own young people are struggling to find high-paying employment. For too long, the federal government and big businesses have colluded to drive wages down by bringing in foreign labor.

We must put our workers first. We can only do this by ensuring we have American jobs for American workers.
