Posted on 05/27/2020 6:38:55 PM PDT by NobleFree
Government agencies around the country are hiring thousands of foreign H-1B workers to fill well-paid government jobs needed by U.S. graduates.
The governments hidden workforces of roughly 18,000 H-1B employees are an easy target for President Donald Trump as he searches for ways to open up good jobs for the many American graduates who have been forced out of jobs by the coronavirus crash.
Trump also needs to do something because he has yet to begin to deliver any part of his dramatic 2016 campaign trail promise: I will end the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program forever and institute an absolute requirement to hire American workers first for every visa and immigration program. No exceptions.
The H-1Bs are being imported and hired at all levels of government throughout the United States.
A small share of the H-1Bs is hired directly by government offices, via a deliberately complex and lengthy process managed by the Departments of Labor, State, and Homeland Security, plus a small army of immigration lawyers.
For example, roughly 130 foreign H-1B employees are being hired by organizations with department in their names. They include the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the New York Police Department, and the Arkansas Department of Public Safety, according to the labor department data.
Many more H-1B are imported by U.S. or Indian staffing companies and are then leased by government agencies. So the federal data from October to late March shows that roughly 3,000 H-1Bs have been requested or leased by government departments from various staffing firms.
The departments include transportation, agriculture, labor, health and human services, and interior. Roughly 85 H-1Bs are being sought for the federal and state Departments of Labor, including the labor departments in Vermont, Idaho, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. [

What the hell is going on here!!!!
Cut them off. Now!
Now!! While unemployment is high. Immigration moratorium on all visas for 1 year.
DJT *could* order them to stop this.
You misspelled "decade".
Trump needs to either end H1B entirely, or admit that it was all politics and he is going to continue with it, expanded, and let Americans simply remain unemployed, replace but cheap for labor, to maximize your profit of companies
FOREIGN WORKERS = DONALD TRUMPS BLIND SPOT.
This is a cancer slowly killing Americans that NONE want to excise!
Sadly Trump has already given U employed H1B 240 or something days to leave if they havent found a new job. He is letting them take American jobs rather than leave. I have yet to see Trump explain this total disconnect from his campaign promises.
So it seems.
President Trump has already set in motion a stop hire for H1-B visas. As a result NINE Republican Senators just today sent the President a letter demanding he not go through with his plan to stop H1-B visas.
Lou Dobbs told his audience about this and is thoroughly disgusted with each of them. In fact, he challenged them to appear on his show and debate this subject.
Ditto for Tucker Carlson on his show tonight.
The GOP is going to push for amnesty and then do an immigration “reform” that they will call “merit based” but is really unlimited H1Bs.
It is too late.
The Indians have taken over the hiring process for most of IT in the US. Indians will not hire Americans. It is a replicating virus. If you are a computer worker in America, you will get old and die in poverty now.
No link available at this time. The Lou Dobbs Tonight program just aired at 7:00 PM and the YT posting of the program is not yet up.
“NINE Republican Senators just today sent the President a letter demanding he not go through with his plan to stop H1-B visas.”
The letter is below - it makes no mention of any such “plan”:
Ann Coulter has been very consistent with her cynicism (criticism) in the policies coming out of DC by GOP imposing more such immigration. We need those like Ann to hold politicians accountable. Hopefully Trump will put an end to H1B or ODP. If he doesn’t I will not be able to give him a pass to one of his first election promises.
Trump needs to drive a stake through the heart of Cheap Labor programs.
Please name them.
With exceptions for extremely beautiful women.
With me deciding which ones qualify.
