Sen. Durbin accuses Trump of breaking his H-1B promise

Of course he has.

Nothing has been done.

After the wall, “Ending H-1B as a source of cheap labor and instituting an absolute requirement to hire Americans first” was the primary campaign promise of Mr. Trump.

He has done exactly nothing on the issue.

It should have been + could have been solved within a week of Trump taking office by simply ending the program and revoking most existing visas.

Zero has been done, let alone ending it.

This is what offices inside America still look like today:

Promise broken, Mr. President.

Not making America great again.

The longtime H-1B reform advocate has run out a patience with the president

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill), a long-time critic of the H-1B visa program and co-sponsor of a reform bill with Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), accused Trump today of failing “to put American workers first by cracking down on H-1B visa abuse.

“I am disappointed that you have broken your campaign promise to take action on the first day of your Administration to reform foreign guest worker visas – especially the H-1B visa – to put American workers first,” Durbin wrote in a letter to Trump sent Friday.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment. Durbin’s letter could be dismissed by some as a partisan attack by a Democrat, but he is not alone. The IEEE-USA has also warned that Trump is in danger of “letting down American workers.”
