Posted on 04/08/2020 6:29:12 AM PDT by PapaBear3625
The State Departments temporary suspension of visa processing has stopped the inflow of H-1B foreign visa workers into American white-collar jobs while the Chinese coronavirus crisis drives up United States jobless claims to more than ten million.
In a given year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa and are allowed to stay for up to six years. There are about 650,000 H-1B visa foreign workers in the U.S. at any given moment.
Americans are often laid off in the process and forced to train their foreign replacements, as highlighted by Breitbart News. More than 85,000 Americans annually potentially lose their jobs to foreign labor through the H-1B visa program.
On March 20, the State Department issued a memo announcing that U.S. embassies and consulates would cancel routine visa processing. The memo means thousands of H-1B visas that would have usually been issued to primarily Indian male nationals have been halted, at least temporarily.

Make it PERMANENT!
H1b’s need to be drastically curtailed. Those out of work now due to the shutdown need to be deported. America is not their country.
Hear hear!! You beat me to it!!!
Curtailed? You really mean ended permanently.
If this is what it takes to MAGA then give us more pandemics!!!
This DHS open borders lobbyist clown needs to be fired .
He also let thousands flee to the US with no virus checks or quarantines.
The man needs to go .
So let's put at least a good part of the blame on the Court and the ridiculous law that says you can kill human beings when they are growing in their most protected environment.
In the name of freedom?? That's ridiculous.
Maybe with another billion chloroquine pills Trump and Modi could expand their deal.
That and revoke the ones in the US and send them home. COD.
Not possible. Must of them manage to obtain US citizenship within a few years, then start telling their relatives to come over!
OH Lord, we are all going to starve
President Trump please make this permanent and stop the replacement and impoverishment of Americans by foreign indentured servants brought in multinational corporations.
When is the NASSCOM employee running DHS going to shutdown these visas? He isnt.
India has a paid-for lobbyist whore running the visa process. Nothing will change. India first, American workers dead last.
Yep. Trump is so thankful to Modi for 2 MILLION HCQ pills that AMERICA DOES NOT NEED for this overblown "pandemic". There will never be anywhere close to that many cases here, and Israel's TEVA has already sent us all we need!
So DO NOT REWARD our Indian economic enemy.
This should be part of a Comprehensive Immigration Enforcement bill, missing since 1986 ONE TIME amnesty. The List of Comprehensive Immigration Enforcement, missing since 1986 goes like this -
1) southern barrier;
2) require eVerify to hire;
3) end all chain migration;
4) birthright per Minor v. Happersett (plural parents);
5) end work visas;
6) 10-year moratorium on all new applications for citizenship (40 years to allow workplace automation effects on downsizing population);
7) Set up an illegal aliens victim restitution fund.
Enactment of these provisions will motivate illegal aliens to SELF-deport, and remove colonizadors from our welfare rolls.
Sure, they’ve overplayed what is a real bioweapon virus. And evil operatives like Fauci have been downplaying that we’ve had the cure all along.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t want the treatment for both the vulnerable prophylactically and those who get it down the road.
The sooner we open up fully the better and chloroquine can probably help us to do that pronto.
Sure, we should have our own domestic pharma production, but until we get there, a massive supply of what India can deliver could be the simple cure for getting us all back out there.
