President Trump Planning Executive Order to Restrict H-1B, Worker Visas

The visa restriction will place American workers first.

Published

President Donald Trump is planning to sign a new executive order that will restrict the issuing of a variety of immigration visas until the end of the year. The visa restrictions are intended to assist American workers to reenter the workforce after being displaced from their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.

Reports indicate that the planned executive order will apply new restrictions to the issuing of H-1B, H-2B, L-1 and other temporary work visas, although there will be exceptions to the restrictions.

White House liberal Jared Kushner is known to have led a pro-business push to undermine President Trump’s desire for more immigration restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic, seeking to deliver a generous supply of foreign labor to Silicon Valley tech executives who have shown a preference for hiring the de facto indentured servants over American workers.

The planned immigration restrictions will only last until the end of the year, raising questions about the order’s effectiveness in an economy where many Americans will struggle to reenter the workforce in 2021 and beyond. However, the executive order reportedly contains a provision that would allow the President to extend the visa restrictions indefinitely.

No matter how you slice it, this is shaping up to be a big win for American workers at a critical time,” said RJ Hauman of the pro-American worker Federation for American Immigration Reform. “We have some concern over potential abuse of broadly written exceptions, but there is still time for that to be addressed, both now and during implementation.

Sources indicate that President Trump is planning to sign the executive order on either Sunday or Monday.

SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.

Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.

The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.

The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”

Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.

Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in  a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
