H-1B Visa Restrictions Are Illegal, Tech Companies Allege in Lawsuit

https://www.newsweek.com/h-1b-visa-trump-illegal-restrictions-909903

“Several tech companies have sued USCIS over a policy memo it recently issued that placed greater restrictions on companies that contract out workers with H-1B visas, in line with the Trump administration’s push to limit the program”.

Except for one little problem: the opposite is true under US law.

8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens

(5) Labor certification and qualifications for certain immigrants

(A) Labor certification

(i) In general

Any alien who seeks to enter the United States for the purpose of performing skilled or unskilled labor is inadmissible, unless the Secretary of Labor has determined and certified to the Secretary of State and the Attorney General that— (I)

there are not sufficient workers who are able, willing, qualified (or equally qualified in the case of an alien described in clause (ii)) and available at the time of application for a visa and admission to the United States and at the place where the alien is to perform such skilled or unskilled labor, and

(II) the employment of such alien will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of workers in the United States similarly employed”.

SURPRISE! Rather than open borders, the US actualy has VERY strict immigration laws – it is illegal to admit ANY foreign worker to the US for work if doing so harms an existing American worker.

Nearly all the US tech companies are in violation of US law and are engaging in illegal wage-fixing and collusion.

Where is law enforcement Mr. Trump?
