    Expand The Ban: Restoring The American Worker

    Expand The Ban: Restoring The American Worker

    The United States is at war with an invisible enemy.

    This conflict has already cost us 80,000 American lives and over 36,000,000 Americans are now unemployed, our own walking wounded. To make matters worse, bipartisan efforts have yielded little relief for those millions of unemployed and their families, adding to the sense of hopelessness that already pervades too many communities in our nation.

    The first promise of real relief, however, came from President Trump last month when he pledged via tweet that he would sign “an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!”

    This promise of an order to protect unemployed citizens from cheap foreign competition was heralded as the perfect solution to our economic woes by all of President Trump’s core constituencies and garnered over 409,000 likes.

    Unfortunately, a funny thing
    happened on the way to the Resolute Desk, and the EO signed by President Trump three days after his initial tweet was radically different than what was promised.

    Not only did the actual EO do little to curb permanent immigrant competition beyond 60 days, it left all of the America Last foreign visa programs completely untouched. As a result, millions of Americans now languish in the unemployment line while
    Big Tech and others continue to import hundreds of thousands of foreigners to take jobs and drive down wages.

    The failure of the White House to adequately address worsening jobs numbers is doubly negligent given the burdens that the American people have thus far carried in the war against the Chinese Coronavirus.

    Schools have been closed, parks chained shut and our greatest resource, America’s grandparents, have been sequestered away from their families. Our citizens have borne these loads with few complaints and we should all be proud. But now it’s time for President Trump to match America’s commitment to victory with a new pledge.

    He must expand the ban on immigration to block all visa labor and give Americans a fighting chance to get back to work.

    Such a move will be unpopular with those America Last interests who blocked his
    first effort , but globalist scorn will matter little in the final accounting on Election Day.

    80 percent of American voters recently polled support reductions in immigration to help Americans get back to work.

    Those voters include many of the Blue-Collar Trump Democrats in Pennsylvania and Michigan, voters whom Joe Biden is targeting specifically to flip in November. And, unlike other Trump Twitter initiatives, an increasing number of elected Republicans want the President to
    expand the ban .

    While Fox News has dedicated little coverage to it, a bicameral team of America First Conservatives penned letters to the President asking him to take the next logical step and block foreign visa labor for the duration of our economic crisis.
    Senators Tom Cotton, Josh Hawley, Chuck Grassley, Ted Cruz and Congressmen Paul Gosar, Lance Gooden, Mo Brooks, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Michael Burgess, Steve King and Brian Babin took the heroic step of declaring that immigrants directly compete with Americans for jobs, a realization the Conservative Inc. brain trust has yet to discover.

    The President of the United States, a dozen Congressmen and the American People all want a halt to immigration. In politics, this is called momentum, and it shouldn’t be squandered.

    The time is right for President Trump to strike a blow for the American worker!

    He has plenary power to guarantee that Americans, when we leave our homes to find work, are greeted with a robust job market, brimming with opportunities and pay that make us not only whole, but stronger than ever before. Our gallant Commander-in-Chief faces an uphill battle to Make the American Economy Great Again, again. Before him is the choice of whether he will follow the precedent of his predecessors on immigration and side with the donors or fulfill the agenda he ran on and put the
    American People First.

    We learned in 2016 that no amount of donor money will detach the American people from a leader who is loyal to them alone. If the President expands the ban and fulfills his pledge to the American worker to protect their jobs, he will not only win re-election, he will have deserved it.

    Any employer who requests a "visa" must first post that job on the Department of Labor website for 30 days.

    Interview American's only. Mandatory they give a valid reason why they did not hire a legal U.S. citizen with follow-up. Then and only then should a visa be issued.

    Get this website and system up and running. Many American's who are out of work will relocate for those jobs.

    Report Urges U.S. to Cut Foreign Work Authorizations by 1.2 Million

    By Bob Dane

    May 20, 2020


    Ahead of this week’s deadline for a federal review of work permit/visaprograms, a new study calls for cutting the influx of temporary foreign laborby almost half.

    President Donald Trump’s April 22 proclamation suspending a tiny fraction of immigration into the country gave the departments of Labor, State and Homeland Security 30 days to review nonimmigrant programs to “ensure the prioritization, hiring and employment of United States workers.”

    The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) took up the challenge and recommended reducing temporary work visas and permits by 1.2 million. Since many programs that granted entry to 2.7 million foreign workers last year are administrative creations, congressional action would not be required in most cases.

    In thefirst of 20 steps to protect a U.S. workforce hammered by layoffs and joblosses stemming from coronavirus-related shutdowns, the “Hire American” reportrecommendsrescindingapproval of “all labor certifications for pendingemployment-based immigrant visas and green card/adjustments of status.”

    The report goes on to proposeimmediately halting applications for several work-permitting programs,including:

    • The Optional Training Program (219,000 new enrollees last year). The controversial job program for foreign students “incentivizes fraud, enables diploma mills and cries out for more oversight,” said Jessica Vaughn, CIS director of policy studies and author of the report.

    • E visas (60,000 annually) purportedly promote foreign investment, but rely heavily on imported workers. Vaughn cited the frequent example of immigrants who open restaurants and staff them exclusively with more of their countrymen. A related program, the scandal-scarred EB-5, is essentially a cash-for-visas scheme that has consistently failed to fulfill its proclaimed mission of boosting U.S. employment in economically distressed communities.

    • H-1B and H-2B visas (190,000 and 97,000 last year) would be tightened to eliminate hiring abuses that disadvantage or exclude American workers. “Employers’ addiction to cheap foreign labor needs to be broken,” asserts CIS Executive Director Mark Krikorian.

    • H-4 visas (93,000 last year) grant work permits to spouses and children of temporary work visa holders. H-4s were invented by the Obama administration and never authorized by Congress.

    • J visa exchange workers (330,000 admitted last year). Vaughn called one J visa component, the summer work travel program, a “naked cheap labor” scheme.

    Astoundingly, CIS found that 144,000 work permits are held by illegal aliens under removal orders.

    Vaughnsaid those permits, along with some 438,000 work authorizations held by asylumseekers, demand unstinting review and, where appropriate, revocation.

    “The case for dramatically reducing the number of foreign workers hasnever been greater,” the CIS study concludes.

    With more than 30 million U.S. jobs lost in just three months, and the likelihood that a full jobs recovery will take far longer, downsizing America’s bloated collection of migrant work permits and visas is Job One.

    Bob Dane, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)'s Executive Director, has been with FAIR since 2006. His deep belief is that immigration is the most transformational determinant of where we are heading as a nation and that our policies must be reformed in the public interest. Over many years on thousands of radio, TV and print interviews, Bob has made the case that unless immigration is regulated and sensibly reduced, it will be difficult for America to reduce unemployment, increase wages, improve health care and education and heighten national security. Prior to joining FAIR, Bob spent twenty years in network radio, marketing and communications after an earlier career in policy and budgeting within the Reagan Administration. Bob has a degree from George Mason University in Public Administration and Management.
