That Immigration Moratorium? President Trump Effectively Reversed Course

Published

on

Although President Donald Trump announced on April 20, 2020 that he would be halting all immigration to the U.S., there are now doubts that he will actually follow through with a moratorium policy that has actual teeth.

Mark Krikorian, the Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, tweeted “Trump now denying he ever wanted to reduce legal immigration.”

Krikorian was referring to the new Executive Order that Trump issued and the follow up discussions that ended up revealing that it has very little teeth.

Conservative host Tucker Carlson was also critical of the news that revealed the flaccidness of the executive order.

The Columbia Bugle tweeted about some of Tucker’s comments:

Must Watch @TuckerCarlson Monologue: Trump’s EO Fails To Protect American Jobs “There is only one point in handing out hundreds of thousands of these visas to foreign nationals & it is to placate big business.” “If the point of this EO was to protect American jobs it failed.”

U.S. Tech Workers, an immigration restriction advocacy group that protects the interests of American tech workers displaced by mass migration, tweeted,“The do-nothing immigration moratorium: – Temporary visa workers (H-1B, OPT, J-1, L-1, H-2B, etc.) won’t be suspended. – New green card issuances put on hold. – EO applicable for 60-days only, & may extend based on economic conditions.”

 

John Binder of Breitbart News noted that “President Trump revealed on Tuesday that his executive order pausing most legal immigration in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis will not keep farmers from fast-tracking foreign workers into the country.”

Trump revealed that his executive order to stop immigration to the U.S. will have exemptions for foreign workers entering the country via the H-2A visa program. As Binder points out, the H-2A visa program “delivers an endless flow of cheap labor to farmers.”

“The farmers will not be affected,” Trump stated.

Binder covered how the Trump administration will handle the agricultural situation:

Trump said his administration is actually making the process easier for farmers to more quickly get H-2A foreign visa workers into the U.S. — referring to the State and Agriculture Departments’ orders to waive visa requirements and allow visa-holders to stay in the country for more than three years.

“No, the farmers will not be affected by this at all,” Trump stated. “If anything, we’re going to make it easier, and we’re doing a process for those workers to come in to go to the farm where they’ve been for a long time.”

Trump did concede that an immigration pause is necessary in order to protect the 22 million or so unemployed Americans from having to compete with cheap labor.

“I want our citizens to get jobs. I don’t want them to have competition,” Trump stated. “I want the American worker and our American citizens to be able to get jobs. I don’t want them to compete right now.”

Binder provided a breakdown of some of the numbers regarding H-2A visas:

The H-2A program allows American farms to import a limitless number of foreign workers and pay them below-average U.S. wages. American farms do not wholly rely on H-2A foreign visa workers to fill agricultural jobs, as the foreign workers make up only about ten percent of the total U.S. crop farm workforce. Last year, U.S. farmers hired roughly 250,000 H-2A foreign visa workers.

The Breitbart immigration policy reported continued noting the wage discrepancies:

In 2017, H-2A foreign visa workers picking crops were paid about two percent less than their American counterparts. Likewise, foreign visa workers operating agricultural equipment were paid 23 percent less than the national average U.S. wage. The largest wage discrepancy comes with H-2A foreign visa workers who take jobs as first-line supervisors for farming and fishing. They are paid about 95 percent less than their American counterparts.

Man Who Brutally Assaulted Michigan Nursing Home Resident Arrested, Charged, and Named

The brute’s name is Jayden Hayden.

Published

on

The perpetrator of a horrific taped assault at a patient at a Michigan nursing home has been arrested, charged, and finally named.

Detroit Police arrested 20-year old Jayden Hayden of Ypsilanti, Michigan on Sunday morning. Hayden is being charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, larceny in a building and two counts of financial transaction device, steal/retain without consent.

The financial crimes relate to Hayden allegedly stealing the credit cards of 75-year old Norman Bledsoe.

The conscience of the nation had been shocked when video of Hayden brutally assaulting the senior citizen in a nursing home bedroom went viral. President Trump himself expressed his shock at the callous footage, in which Hayden repeatedly punched and beat the U.S. Army veteran.

Hayden has apparently uploaded videos online of other despicable assaults against senior citizens.

Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy expressed her resolve to hold Hayden criminally accountable for the heinous crime.

The alleged actions of this defendant are truly and uniquely disturbing. We must be able to trust our loved ones in specialty care facilities. I truly hope that the facts of this care are one of a kind.” Hayden was arraigned in court on Sunday morning.

New facts of the case seem to suggest that Hayden himself was a short-term resident of the Westwood Nursing Center, as opposed to an employee of the facility, which some had speculated.

Hayden seems to express racist and anti-white beliefs in some of his social media uploads, stating that he believes that “black people are meant to rule the earth.” However, it doesn’t appear as if local authorities are treating the savage, cowardly assault as a hate crime at this point.
