This is huge. No more fake US work visas for India Incs.
466,00 tech jobs were just recovered from Obama’s H-1B executive order.
“President Trump ordered biometric ID cards for all non-immigrant work visas and is moving to dump Obama’s executive order expanding H-1B green cards by 466,000.
Donald Trump’s first initiative as president was issuing the “Buy American and Hire American” order in April 2017 that instructed the U.S. Immigration Service to drastically restructure the job-destroying H-1B “temporary foreign worker” program.
But Silicon Valley tech giants used low-cost H-1B foreigners to dump higher paid American employees. When H-1B temporary workers’ visas expire, many fail to return home and just keep working.
… Obama trumpeted that, if elected president, “I will stop giving tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas, and I will start giving them to companies that create good jobs right here in America.”
But in his first six years as president, the H-1B program swelled to 460,000 non-immigrant foreign graduates taking U.S. jobs, plus another 107,000 foreign workers taking American tech jobs under an H-1B unlimited hiring exemption for U.S. universities“.
Think about that for a moment:that’s over 567,000 US tech jobs given away to foreign visa holder just since 2008 alone. That’s on top of the 195,000 per year since the 2001 Clinton visa increases. That’s at least a million tech jobs given away to foreign workers – not including L-1 visas which have no numerical limit.
The US only has 4 million “STEM” jobs, total.
