    Trump Plans ‘Potential Pathway to Citizenship’ for Foreign H-1B Workers

    Trump Plans ‘Potential Pathway to Citizenship’ for Foreign H-1B Workers


    January 11, 2019

    John Binder





    President Trump says he plans to offer foreign workers imported to the United States by Silicon Valley tech conglomerates and multinational corporations every year a “potential path to citizenship” to encourage so-called “highly skilled” migration.


    Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa and allowed to stay for up to six years. There are about 650,000 H-1B visa foreign workers in the U.S. at any given moment. Americans are often laid off in the process and forced to train their foreign replacements, as highlighted by Breitbart News. More than 85,000 Americans a year potentially lose their jobs to foreign labor through the H-1B visa program.


    In a tweet Friday morning, Trump reversed course on his “Buy American, Hire American” executive order, saying he wants to offer a pathway to U.S. citizenship to the hundreds of thousands of foreign workers living in the country on the H-1B visa.

    “H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship,” Trump said. “We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S.”

    Trump most recently told the media he wanted technology corporations to import and hire more H-1B foreign workers for coveted, high-paying white-collar jobs instead of those companies seeking American graduates in the tech fields.


    “It is contradictory that Trump wants to raise wages for Americans and also bring in more workers who will cut salaries,” an American technology professional told Breitbart News’ Neil Munro. “It is political suicide … because the tech workers believed [in 2016] he was the only one who stood up for them.”




    While Trump is now looking to streamline the H-1B visa to make it easier for employers to import foreign workers to take American jobs, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) had been considering a regulatory change to tighten the program in order to ensure that American workers are not being readily replaced by mostly Indian male nationals.


    Trump’s tweet comes as business attempted to outsource nearly 420,000American jobs in Fiscal Year 2018 to H-1B foreign workers rather than hiring U.S. workers.

    On the campaign trail and in his “Buy American, Hire American” executive order, Trump promised to reform the H-1B visa program to stem the tide of American workers being laid off by multinational corporations and forced to train their foreign replacements.



    The most famous case was that of the laid-off American Disney workers who rallied with Trump on the 2016 presidential campaign trail, trusting that he would stop companies from importing foreign workers instead of hiring qualified Americans.

    Last year, the laid-off Americans who sued Disney for replacing them with foreign H-1B workers announced they would be dropping their lawsuit after years of attempting to hold the corporation accountable.



    As Breitbart News previously reported, more than 2.7 million H-1B foreign workers have been approved to come to the U.S. to take American jobs between 2007 and 2017. During that same period, businesses tried to outsource almost 3.5 million American jobs to foreign workers instead of hiring Americans.


    About four million young Americans enter the workforce each year, many looking for white-collar jobs in the STEM fields. Those Americans’ prospects of finding work are crippled by the country’s legal immigration process, which admits more than 1.5 million immigrants and hundreds of thousands of foreign visa workers annually. Already, the wage-cutting business scheme has led to foreign-born workers overwhelmingly outnumbering Americans in the tech industry in Silicon Valley, California.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Just like we don't need any illegal aliens here, who steal blue collar jobs and lower our wages, we also don't need any foreign IT workers, considering the IT job market is oversaturated with tens of thousands, and maybe even hundreds of thousands, of American IT graduates who can't find a job in the industry because there are more IT graduates than there are available IT jobs. This is insane, and just plane wrong......and outrageous.

    So it's not enough that our colleges and universities give our children's seats away to foreign students in the name of increased profits (foreign students pay full tuition, room, and board). Now Trump wants give our children's future jobs away by bribing the foreign students to remain here with the offer of full citizenship. This is contrary to Trump's stated position of Americans first!

    What Trump is doing with the H1B program, green cards and chain migration is exactly what he said he was going to do during the campaign. The difference is he had hoped to do this through legislation but can't do it that way, this was all in his 70 point DACA deal which failed to pass, so he's doing it through regulatory changes to the H1B and green card programs. People will see what he's doing when the new regulations come out in a few weeks or months and can assess then whether they like or not. Most people are going to like it a lot if he's able to do it. Apparently he and the lawyers think he can, so get r done.

    Also H1B's already have a path to citizenship through eligibility to apply for green cards. So he's not changing that, that already exists, he's changing when and putting conditions on.

    Last evening, Lou Dobbs (FOX Business) was beside himself over President Trump tweeting that about H-1b visas. He said that whoever is advising him on this is seriously misleading him. The president better not do this. It is another cheap labor gift to Silicon Valley.

    We would think and hope that President Trump would be constant in talking "America First" and avoid the defeating talk to American citizens to permit foreign citizens who come for education to stay and his talk of love for illegal alien "dreamers," his support for DACA, citizenship for many.

    Border not secure, releasing THOUSANDS of foreign UAC's into our neighborhoods and schools on the backs of US taxpayers to pay for. Full of diseases and they are sick...thanks for forcing US to pay for their medical care...it is NOT free!!

    What about the pregnant ones Trump? Just come on over, drop a baby, we don't care about the American people or their families. They will gladly work two jobs to pay for the worlds overbreeding, uneducated poor!

    Border Patrol now giving them a helping hand, a hug and a boost over the existing barriers while passing out diapers and happy meals!

    Another violent caravan of illegal aliens on the way...what is your big plan for them Trump? Force us to pay for thousands of "beds" out of our paychecks...then WE pay to bus them to the nearest Greyhound station where they are dumped in our communities to pay for and we suffer their crimes committed against us too?

    Thousands pour across the border and now TRUMP wants to give the Gravy Train of pathway to citizenship to MILLIONS of foreign workers from around the world. Good going...not.

    A free pass for TPS? For refugees? For asylum liars? Jeez, how many millions do you want to dump on us and break our backs!

    What a sell out.

    Stop listening to Ivanka, Jared and Grahamnesty!

    WHERE IS THE "FREE" PASS FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS? WHO PAYS OUR BILLS?

    I am waiting for the day that Lou Dobbs and others wake up and realize this is all not happening because of the people advising President Trump, this is what Trump wants! Trump did not become a billionaire by listening to poor advisors, and he is not listening to poor advisors now, this is what Trump wants. Trump chose all those "poor advisors" because he was in agreement with them, and he has the added advantage of people will blame my advisors, not me. He uses people. He uses people to take the blame for what he wants to do, while he skates free. Wake up people and watch the Master Manipulator do his thing.
