Trump is right: American jobs should be prioritized

Trump's executive order directs federal agencies to crack down on fraud and abuse of the program and generate more reports on it, Repko says. Many go to technology companies, which argue that the USA has a shortage of skilled technology workers. "This historic action declares that the policy of our government is to progressively promote and use American-made goods and to ensure that American labor is hired to do the job". This week he signed an executive order this week which would direct federal agencies to "Buy American, Hire American". In order to address these issues, Trump will order the Department of Homeland Security to review the process with which it awards these visas to foreign workers.

Silicon Valley isn't known for its protests, but the government's proposed crackdown on H-1B visas have caused the tech capital to mobilize.

As a member of this country's shrinking and besieged middle class, I'm angry most Americans are apathetic about visas, outsourcing and immigration abuse.

"The Executive Order the President signed today ushers in a new, more muscular Buy American policy based on the twin pillars of maximizing Made in America content and minimizing waivers and exceptions to Buy American laws". But according to studies, 80 per cent of the approved applications were for the two lowest wage levels allowed.

Kane and ruthless Spurs have Chelsea in their sights
As good a tactical masterclass as it was from Mourinho, there was a touch of fortune about both goals. Winger Jesse Lingard was played out of position in attack and added more mobility alongside Rashford.

H-1B visas are granted for three years at a time to foreign workers that have specialized knowledge in fields where there are a shortage of American workers, typically in science, information technology and engineering.

According to Loganathan, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh account for 40-45% of the total number of 60,000 H-1B temporary visas from India every year. In putting pen to paper on this matter, Trump is looking to bring to fruition his campaign promise to support domestic blue-collar workers and U.S. job creation. Congressman Bill Pascrell, Ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade, alleged that the executive orde is yet another "broken promise" from Trump, who told the American people that he would end the H-1B visa program. To qualify for the visa, workers usually must have a bachelor's degree or higher. The tech industry has argued that the H-1B program is needed because it encourages students to stay in the US after getting degrees in high-tech specialties — and because companies can't always find enough American workers with the skills they need.

What's more, the executive orders will also require federal agencies to review and minimise the use of waivers and exceptions in global trade agreements.

"Any onerous additional restrictions on the H-1B.would hurt thousands of U.S. businesses and their efforts to be more competitive by hindering access to needed talent", NASSCOM said in a statement.
