After President Trump announced he would be suspending immigration to the United States to protect the jobs and wages of millions of newly unemployed workers during the pandemic, the Spectator USA reported an internal battle broke out in the White House.
Sources familiar with the situation told the Spectator that Kushner is one of the loudest voices pushing back on a full ban and is seeking to carve out exemptions for refugees, temporary workers under the H1B visa program, and farmworkers under the H-2A visa program.
If thats true, then Kushner achieved a total victory.
The ban applies only to those seeking legal residency. It therefore misses the mark because, as Jessica Vaughn of the Center for Immigration Studies explains, there will be only a modest impact since 60% of green card applicants are already here (80% of employment category is already here). In other words, the ban applies to the only group of foreign nationals who are not coming to the United States specifically to take a job, while making exemptions for H1B, H2A, and H2B visas. Trumps immigration proclamation actually exempts some of the largest sources of immigration and specifically economic categories which negatively affect jobs and wages for American workers.
The ban actually hurts American job prospects and wages, while putting on a cheap labor parade for big business. Worse yet, as Vaughn notes, the ban declares EB-5 entries essential, effectively pulling out the brakes on the already thoroughly bad program.

That’s only the tip of the iceberg as to how Kushner has hurt this administration.
The Trump administration is eyeing additional steps to restrict immigration visas within the next month, just days after President Trump signed an executive order limiting immigration into the country.
This is a first step... I think youll see additional steps, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said Thursday on “Fox News @ Night.”
And in that executive order that the president issued yesterday, it actually directs the Department of Homeland Security, as well as the Department of Labor to look at these non-immigrant or temporary visa programs and come back to him with recommendations, Wolf said. And thats something that the department has been looking at for the past several months.”
So, were well underway, and look forward to presenting to the president those recommendations for additional steps, he said.
Stop the damn H1-b fiasco. Its put hundreds of thousands ( or more) American workers into the unemployment line, into the dole, into the scrap heap and homelessness WHEN THEY CSN AND WISH TO WORK
If I were Trump I’d tell Kushner to take his wife and go home and take care of the kids. America didn’t elect Kushner or Ivanka to anything.
Kushner will be on The Next Revolution tomorrow on FNC at PM EDT, a relatively rare interview.
Prince Charles disagrees with that. But you cant please everybody.
Kushner needs to go to jail. He is a traitor.
The Royal Couple strikes again.
This is old news and we already deemed it fake news.
Worse yet, as Vaughn notes, the ban declares EB-5 entries essential, effectively pulling out the brakes on the already thoroughly bad program.
Really? It's a "thoroughly bad" to have foreigners pay $500,000 to $1,000,000 to gain legal status?
That's some really really strained logic on both counts. This article is garbage.
I can’t stand that Jared prick. When I saw him make a fool of himself the other day at the daily corona press conference I had to take a break from the whole thing. I never liked that dill weed from the beginning.
H1b Delenda Est.
How did you “deem” it fake?
From a thread yesterday.
The Kushner mess is a glaring red flag, but it's not the only example. I hope Kushner isn't blackmailing him.
