Skip to comments.[BARF ALERT] Graham: Trump visa order will have a 'chilling effect on our economic recovery'

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Monday that the order President Trump signed earlier in the day suspending certain temporary work visas through the end of the year will have a chilling effect on the nations economic recovery amid the coronavirus pandemic.
This decision, in my view, will have a chilling effect on our economic recovery at a time we should be doing all we can to restore the economy, Graham said in a series of tweets.
The order Trump signed Monday applies to H-1B visas, H-2B visas, H-4 visas, L-1 visas and certain J-1 visas.
Under ordinary circumstances, properly administered temporary worker programs can provide benefits to the economy, the order reads. But under the extraordinary circumstances of the economic contraction resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, certain nonimmigrant visa programs authorizing such employment pose an unusual threat to the employment of American workers.
Graham said such visa programs are positive for the American economy, adding that those who believe legal immigration, particularly work visas, are harmful to the American worker do not understand the American economy.
The senator underscored his comments by saying that work visas for temporary and seasonal jobs can only be issued AFTER American workers have had a chance to fill the job position.
Before coronavirus, legal immigration and programs like these played an important role in helping President Trump create the strongest economy in generations. I have little doubt that programs like these would help him build it again, Graham said.
Graham said he fears Trumps decision to temporarily shut the program will create a drag on our economic recovery and said doing so may not lead to employment opportunities for displaced American workers but could instead increase the cost of consumer goods for Americans -- particularly service industry related products.
Count on Linda to sell out.
Graham is getting to be useless as teats on a boar hog.
Linda looking out for his establishment/globaloid owners again.
My opinion is that the scumbag graham believe President Trump will lose and he wants to patted on the head by the new masters of the senate and keep his corrupt money flowing.
He doesn’t need a mask.
TRAITOR. 45m Americans are out of work that can mostly be trained to do what the indians do or already know.
All talk and no balls. For years this clown was in lock step with McCain ( who wasn’t a hero, he was a POW). Don’t trust this on with pulling your finger
NO Linda, It is people Like you that are destroying this country, you and your buddy McCain were intricately involved in the attempted coup. Your Failure to Confess and Turn on the Other Conspirators that you helped to try and OVERTHROW THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT is the Real Root of our Problems. I hope you DIE a Slow and Miserable Death.
Deliver us from insufferable fools.
Lindsey is threatening to give up senate seats if he cant collect his chamber of commerce money.
In other words, it’s gonna be so cool!
We have no choice.....we’re stuck with the GOP...
Tucker Carlson tonight
Still carrying water for China and the globalists I see.
Graham is mentally ill as well as a weakling.
This is a shot across the bow by Trump to Facebook and Google. I bet they are some of the biggest employers of H1B indentured servants as programmers.
What Linda understands about the American economy could be written on the back of a postage stamp. With plenty of room left over.
Lindshe cannot hide his dirty under panties anymore. What a rotten POS it is.
