    Author Rep. James Sensenbrenner [R-WI] represents HR 4065 as "To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to strengthen enforcement of the immigration laws, to enhance border security, and for other purposes."

    However, section SEC. 1402 contains a provision that would increase the H-1b quota from 65,000 to between 130,000 and 195,000 per year.

    The Programmers Guild has sent this FAX to the 10 sponsors.

    FULL TEXT OF BILL: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h110-4065

    REQUEST: It is critical that you phone the following Congressmen and ask that they remove this H-1b provision, which has nothing to do with enhancing border security. You can reach them all toll free at 1-800-614-2803, and ask to be transferred to their office. You might reference the Programmers Guild fax.
