The abuse of the H1-B visa program that allows companies to hire foreign workers if they are unable to fill the roles has been going on for too long. One of the most recent high-profile abuses was by Disney, where they took on a whole new foreign workforce and had the American employees train them before being fired. If the American staff were needed to train the foreign staff, then clearly they had the necessary skills; which means Disney abused the visa program at the cost of US workers.
This kind of scam by big-businesses happens all too often, and benefits no one but the corporations top people. The American workers lose their jobs, the foreign workers are paid less (or have worse benefits), and it makes small businesses unable to compete.
BUt it looks like this abuse is at an end. And it may also spell the end of Paul Ryan. Ryan has long been an advocate of bringing in more foreign workers (he is also responsible for blocking the funding of Trump’s border wall), so it is quite fitting that President Trump flew to Ryan’s constituency to sign his new executive orders.
The new orders specifically cover the abuse of H1-B visa programs and the abuse of competition by foreign companies. Was Trump sending Ryan a message?
Paul Ryan has always been an open-borders globalist in the pockets of corporations who bring in cheap foreign workers. Ryan told CNN last year that he favors an ENDLESS supply of cheap foreign workers. He said reducing foreign visas is not “in the agenda,” and he blocked funding for The wall.
Today, Trump flew to Wisconsin and got the ULTIMATE revenge!
PRESIDENT TRUMP SPECIFICALLY CHOSE PAUL RYAN’S DISTRICT TO SIGN THE EXECUTIVE ORDER ENDING PAUL RYAN’S BELOVED H-1B FOREIGN WORKER SYSTEM AS WE KNOW IT!
Paul Ryan didn’t even show up and it was in his own district!! He claims it was because of a scheduling conflict, but why wouldn’t he plan on being in his District when the President comes?? Trump just showed who is in charge once again and it’s not the GLOBALISTS like Paul Ryan! SHARE if you stand with President Trump against Ryan and the establishment!
This was Paul Ryan just last year saying reducing foreign visas IS NOT on the agenda!
Contrast that with what President Trump said today. From Breitbart:
“NO LONGER ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW FOREIGN COUNTRIES TO CHEAT OUR PRODUCERS AND OUR WORKERS OUT OF FEDERAL CONTRACTS,” HE SAID.
HE ALSO CALLED FOR H-1B VISA REFORM, ASSERTING THAT THE CURRENT LOTTERY SYSTEM WAS “WRONG,” AND SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON ONLY ALLOWING IN IMMIGRANTS WITH THE “MOST SKILLED AND HIGHEST PAID APPLICANTS.”
“NO ONE CAN COMPETE WITH AMERICAN WORKERS WHEN THEY ARE GIVEN A FAIR AND LEVEL PLAYING FIELD, WHICH HAS NOT HAPPENED FOR DECADES,” HE SAID.
President Trump can’t work with a Speaker of the House who disagrees so adamantly on this issue. It’s time for Trump to say the two famous words…You’re Fired!
