    He campaigned on a merit-based immigration system with lower numbers. He wants highly educated, highly skilled people to come into our country who can support themselves and still help our companies who need help, at market wages so there's no unfair competition against American Workers. This was all in the DACA deal, 70 point plan. Those bills didn't pass so he's going to try to achieve part of it through regulatory changes. It's already come out that he's removing public charges or people who could potentially become public charges from green card eligibility. This is his second move to use up all those green card slots with H1B's already here for years and years waiting for a green card while they renew their H1B every year for years. While they're in that limbo, employers take advantage and work them at lower pay, discriminating against American Workers, once they're moved to Green Cards, employers don't have that leverage, the workers earn market wages and pay taxes like anyone else, therefore no financial advantage to the employers to hire foreign workers over American Workers. So employers will say "Well if I don't have a tax advantage and wage rate advantage, why would I hire foreign? I might as well hire an American." Well, DUH!!!

    Lou should have waited to comment until he saw the actual regulations or spoken with Trump directly about it.

    It will all come out when the new regulation is written. But I'm pretty sure that's what he's doing.

    We'll see soon enough, because that was his plan during the campaign and while he wanted to do it legislatively in the DACA deal legislation, that didn't work out, so he's doing it as best as he can through regulatory changes.

    I DO NOT WANT THEIR HIGHLY EDUCATED OR HIGHLY SKILLED WORKERS!

    GO HOME AND EFFECT CHANGE IN YOUR COUNTRY FOR PEACE AND PROSPERITY.

    GO BUILD THE "AMERICAN DREAM" ON YOUR SOIL.

    WE ARE SICK OF PEOPLE BLABBING OFF ABOUT THE "AMERICAN DREAM"

    THIS HAS BECOME THE "AMERICAN NIGHTMARE" ACROSS OUR NATION

    KEEP OUT, GET OUT AND STAY OUT! NO MORE PEOPLE!

    KEEP THEM OUT "BIGLY" BECAUSE WE ARE SICK OF THIS UNRELENTING INVASION AND ALL THESE PROGRAMS TO FLOOD OUR COUNTRY WITH MORE FOREIGNERS!
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    Even if all that were true, why concentrate on a tiny spark off to the side when there is a blazing inferno that needs to be put out, not ignored.

    I suspect Lou knows as much, if not more, than you do. Just saying ...

    President Trump needs to stop all of his amnesty talk. DACA love is amnesty. Calls for expansion of H-1b by many and the numerous other visa paths to enter need to be curtailed. Clamoring for cheap foreign labor needs to cease when you talk "America First."

    We have a mess. Clean up the mess.

    NO AMNESTY

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