    Donald Trump has picked Ohio senator J.D. Vance as his running mate, choosing a grassroots favorite ahead of more seasoned political operators. The former president left it until the last possible moment, using all his showman skills to leave the world guessing, before opting for 39-year-old Vance after the Republican National Convention had already begun in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Vance swept to national attention when he published his bestselling memoir 'Hillbilly Elegy,' in 2016, the year Trump was elected president. He has been a senator for less than two years but has established himself as one of the fiercest defenders of...

    MIAMI (AP) — Former President Donald Trump said in an interview posted on Thursday he wants to give automatic green cards to foreign students who graduate from U.S. colleges, a sharp departure from the anti-immigrant rhetoric he typically uses on the campaign trail. Trump was asked about plans for companies to be able to import the “best and brightest” in a podcast taped Wednesday with venture capitalists and tech investors called the “All-In.” “What I want to do and what I will do is you graduate from a college, I think you should get automatically as part of your diploma...

    President Donald Trump’s campaign team is rewriting his Thursday night promise to grant green cards to any foreign graduates of four-year universities and two-year community colleges. President Trump believes “we ought to keep the most skilled graduates who can make significant contributions to America … who would never undercut American wages or workers,” said the statement from spokeswoman Katherine Leavitt.

    The theme song for the Biden Administration should be “South of The Border.” Biden’s open borders policies are like something out of the book/film “Gangs of New York.” This time it isn’t Irish immigrants that are rioting/looting, it iis illegal immigrants from Latin America, China, and the Middle East. Essentially replacing native-born workers with foreign-born workers. Since COVID, the growth in foreign-born workers have blow away the growth in native-born workers. So much so that since 2019, native-born workers have actually lost jobs while foreign-born workers have surged. But for May 2024, native-born workers lost 463k jobs while foreign-born gained...

    Tens of thousands of Americans have been made redundant at large companies this year. according to Warn Tracker, a website that tracks upcoming layoffs based on WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988) notices. The WARN Act mandates that employers conducting large-scale layoffs or closures notify employees as well as state government officials of job losses at least 60 days in advance. WARN notices must be served by companies that have 100 or more full-time employees or 100 or more employees who, in aggregate, work at least 4,000 hours per week, excluding overtime.

    “Comparing the fourth quarter of 2019 to the fourth quarter of 2023 shows 2.7 million more people working in the United States — 2.9 million more immigrants (legal and illegal) and 183,000 fewer U.S.-born Americans. Since the depths of the Covid Recession in 2020 employment has increased for both groups. But the number of U.S.-born workers has not made it back to the 2019 pre-Covid level. Equally important, the share of working-age, U.S.-born men without a bachelor’s not in the labor force deteriorated in the decades prior to 2019, and the rate in the fourth quarter of 2023 was lower...

    In “The True Believer,” Eric Hoffer wrote, “Nothing is so unsettling to a social order as the presence of a mass of scribes without suitable employment and an acknowledged status.” We’re about to find out just how right he was. From the 1970s to roughly now, offshoring and automation gobbled up blue-collar factory-type jobs. Auto companies laid off workers by the thousands and sent factories to Canada and Mexico. ... White-collar types were notably unsympathetic, for the most part. Berkeley professor and Clinton administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich declared the future belonged to the “symbolic analysts” — people who, in...

Bush’s so-called “Any Willing Worker” policy that sought to import foreign workers for American jobs at the direction of special interest groups. During a CNN town hall in Iowa, Haley endorsed allowing special interest groups such as Big Agriculture, the tourism industry, and Big Tech to set legal immigration levels whenever they claim to have a labor shortage.

    Those rascals on the left have become pretty easy to figure out. When they accused Trump of keeping "top secret" documents in Mar-a Lago, I knew Joe Biden had a stash o' confidential files somewhere.FACT-O-RAMA! Some top secret bumf was found in the Biden-Penn Center, an office built for Biden with "anonymous donations" from Communist China and occupied by members of the Biden family and two Chinese commies. More secret papers were discovered in Biden's Delaware home. Since they were dated before Biden was president, he did not have the legal right to swipe them. An "investigation" decided not to...

    IBM is in hot water due to its discriminatory hiring practices. No, they’re not discriminating against blacks or Hispanics; they’re taking part in the popular new craze of treating whites and Asians like second-class citizens and denying them basic rights based on the color of their skin. This is the United States, and these actions are supposed to be illegal here. That’s why America First Legal, a group started by Trump loyalist Stephen Miller, is now suing IBM for racially discriminating against white and Asian Americans and for promising to fire, demote, or deny bonuses to corporate executives who fail...

    Apple will be forced to fork over $25 million to settle claims by Biden’s Justice Department that the company illegally favored immigrant workers over American citizens and green card holders for certain jobs. According to the Department of Justice, the tech giant didn’t recruit US citizens or permanent residents for jobs that were eligible for the permanent labor certification or PERM program, which enabled employers to sponsor immigrant workers for green cards. The practice was a violation of a federal law that bans discrimination based on citizenship. Additionally, Apple didn’t advertise job openings that were eligible for the program on...
