  • Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf stepping down from Trump administration

    the Washington Examiner ^ | 11 Jan 21 | Anna Giaritelli,
    Chad Wolf will resign from his position as acting secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, leaving the Trump administration nine days ahead of President Trump's departure from office, a senior DHS official told the Washington Examiner Monday. Wolf, 44, was the fifth person to lead the DHS under the Trump administration and was in his position 14 months. Trump formally nominated Wolf to head the 250,000-person department in August, but the Senate never voted to confirm him. Wolf became acting secretary in November 2019, following the departure of acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan. The nomination was pulled shortly after Wolf...

    The H1B visa system has been modified following the announcement of a final rule by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The new look H1B visa program will prioritize skills and salary level over the lottery system. The changes are said to be in the interests of protecting US workers and ensuring that the most highly skilled foreign workers benefit from the H1B visa program. The final rule announced by USCIS will come into effect 60 days after its publication in the Federal Register. The next H1B visa filing season is expected to begin on April 1 2021. Commenting...

    Saw it in Wikipedia under 2022 US Senate elections. Could be a misprint but it would please me if true. He's too disappointing. Young enough to be reelected indefinitely or be a a long term SCOTUS appointment. Sadly he's a mittens-in-the-making. It would open the door for those who have outlived their usefulness. Think Hoeven, Moran, Thune. These are the 'younger' ones who just might think they'll quit on THEIR OWN time table. Now's the time.

    RJ Hauman with the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which had requested Trump extend the halt on foreign visa workers to the U.S., said the order continues to be critical in a labor market where 17.8 million Americans are jobless today. “While the unemployment rate has fallen, too many Americans are still looking for work and the economic outlook remains bleak,” Hauman said. “If this proclamation was allowed to lapse, then companies could easily return to exploiting cheap foreign labor,” Hauman continued. “If President-elect Biden quickly rescinds, the country should take note — he doesn’t stand with American workers.”...

    President Trump is facing a fast-approaching deadline to extend an executive order he imposed earlier this year suspending various temporary work visas amid the coronavirus pandemic. Trump is under pressure from some corners to extend the order into 2021, which would put pressure on the incoming Biden administration over whether to quickly rescind it. The president's advisers are said to be split over whether Trump should act, according to sources familiar with discussions. Trump in June signed an executive order suspending the issuance of H-1B visas, H-2B visas, H-4 visas, L-1 visas and certain J-1 visas. The moratorium on new...

    ... It is beyond our understanding that a bipartisan bill can be blocked just because of a clause that never was part of the original bill and only for the word “Chinese”. Democrats again stopped it with a petty issue of the word ‘Chinese communist’. History shows that Democrat’s hearts melt only for undocumented dreamers... Where there is a will, there is a way! But, looking at the deadlock, it seems that ‘there is no will‘ to help thousands of tax-paying, law-abiding families currently living in the USA. Indians will die and their DALCA kids will age out while watching...

    Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren will put her Silicon Valley version of GOP Sen. Mike Lee’s S.386 green card giveaway bill into the year-end omnibus bill — if top GOP leaders stand aside, say sources and lobbyists. The GOP leaders who can stop Lofgren’s bill include Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R.Ky., appropriations chairman Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who recently won reelection.The Democrats “can sneak it through, so the leadership needs to draw the red line,” warned one Senate staffer. Lofgren is an immigration lawyer and represents a district in Silicon Valley. She pushed for the 2019...

    “That’s a game changer from the original bill,” said a tweet from a top ranking immigration lawyer Greg Siskind. It gives people “most of the benefits of a green card,” said Siskind, who is working with hospital chains to expand the pipeline of foreign nurses and doctors into U.S. hospitals. Current law says migrants and foreign contract workers become Legal Permanent Residents of the United States once they get green cards and also become eligible to apply for citizenship and voting cards in five years. Lee’s “Green-Card Lite” process gives foreign workers all those benefits expect a five-year path to...

    "The last thing we need is to further divide an already-divided nation." said Senator Mike Lee of Utah upon blocking the creation of two new Smithsonian museums. The museums in question would be one dedicated to women and another dedicated only to Latinos, and enjoyed broad bipartisan support. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Senate was attempting to pass them by a political mechanism known as the "voice vote", but Senator Lee dissented, and the vote needed to be unanimous to pass in that way. There are still ways of passing the bill within the Senate, but most of...

    Republicans are sending Senators Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and Tim Scott to campaign for GOP Senators Loeffler and Purdue Earlier this week GOP senators voted to give US jobs to foreigners — during a pandemic. These same senators refused to stand with President Trump after the election was stolen. And now they are going rally for Loeffler and Perdue? And they say NOTHING about the fraud in the state? Look for these same people to blame Trump or Lin Wood if these elections are also stolen in January. FOX News reported: If President Trump fails in his effort to expose...

    Utah Senator Mike Lee succeeded in passing legislation in the Senate that would eliminate per-country-caps on recipients of H-1B visas on Wednesday, a policy change that would effectively monopolize the visa system for nationals of large countries such as India. The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act has been called the greatest corporate welfare program for Big Tech in recent memory. Lee has persistently sought to pass the corporate giveaway, with previous attempts to eliminate per-country-caps being blocked by Democrat Dick Durbin and Republican Rick Scott. Neither Senator objected to the unanimous passage of the modified S386 legislation on Wednesday afternoon....
