    Group of Senate Republicans Urges Trump to Suspend ‘All Guest Worker Visas’ Until Unemployment Returns to ‘Normal Levels’

    A group of GOP Senators is asking President Trump to ramp up his recent “pause” on immigration to include a prohibition on guest-worker visas, citing rising levels of American unemployment amid the coronavirus pandemic.


    Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.), joined by Senators Josh Hawley (R., Mo.), Ted Cruz (R., Texas), and Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) are requesting that the White House halt new guest-worker visas and all non-immigrant guest-worker visas, as well as a suspension of new non-immigrant guest-worker visas for 60 days or until American jobless numbers fall to “normal levels.”


    “As we work toward recovery, we urge you to keep the American worker in mind and limit the number of unnecessary guest workers while American families and businesses get back on their feet,” the senators write in the letter.


    While Trump announced a 60-day moratorium on immigration last month, the rule did not affect guest-worker programs, including EB-5 visas — which give immigrants green cards after a set amount of investment — H-2B visas for nonagricultural seasonal workers, H-1B visas for specialty occupation workers, and the country’s Optional Practical Training (OTP) program, which allows foreign students to work in the U.S. for 1-3 years after graduation.


    The senators explain that EB-5 program “has long been plagued by scandal” and amounts to a “pay-for citizenship scheme in many cases.” They also argue that suspensions to OTP, H-1B, and H-2B will help those citizens who recently graduated high school or college and have entered a tough job market.


    “Given the extreme lack of available jobs for American job-seekers as portions of our economy begin to reopen, it defies common sense to admit additional foreign guest workers to compete for such limited employment,” they explain.


    Last week, the Department of Labor reported 3.8 million new jobless claims, bringing the total number of American seeing unemployment benefits to 30 million, or 18 percent of the total work force.

    Another "scandal" is illegal aliens in OUR school system! Order them removed from enrollment and make them self deport!

    No school for illegal aliens! We do not have the budget for this.

    Order every foreign student in our school system be sent back home and their country pays for it.

    Our schools are overcrowded, our teachers overworked, and we want them all off our soil. They take up our seats in class, our dorms, and our housing then the do NOT leave and take our jobs! They need to go home!

    Sadly the U.S. Supreme Court disagrees with you.

    NO AMNESTY

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

    They are here illegally breaking our FEDERAL immigration laws...get them the hell OUT of our schools!

    Deport their illegal alien parents WITH their minor children to get them out.

    This needs to go back to the courts, it is not 1982 anymore!

    It is outrageous that there are only 4 Senators out of 100 on this letter! Where are the other 55 Republican Senators?

    Hats off to Senators Cotton, Hawley, Cruz, and Grassley but where the hell are all the others?

    And why the hell is Donald Trump allowing foreign labor to continue flowing into the USA when we have more than 30 million unemployed American workers who need jobs!?!?!
