Skip to comments.Trump tweet on upcoming changes to H1B

H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship. We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S.
If they modify the program to be closer to the original intent, getting rare and expert level talent instead of supressing wages on entry and mid-level work, this could be a good thing
not if those h1b holders were brought here to replace fired American workers because they are cheaper!
Maybe 1 in 1000 H1Bs meet this description - the other 999 are just cheap labor.
The entire program should be shut down.
NO!!! These are temporary (and abused) visas. These people need to go home, not stay and permanently take American jobs!!! No H1B!!! END THIS ABUSIVE PROGRAM!
this H1B program was sold on the basis it would give work permits to persons with exceptional, rare talents not available in USA
instead, millions of people with a full spectrum of skills from the very mundane and mostly just average or less than average looking
have been let in (imported by major “American” corporate special interests) to take jobs away from American citizens
the corporations get away with paying them less because ... the MAIN reason the corporations do this to us Americans... is that the corporations can have these cheaper workers exported at a moment’s notice
it would be an exaggeration to call this a scheme to import slave labor (the corporations don’t need that.. they just export the work to Communist China and other slave labor economies)
but it sure contains much of the same slave-master mentality
and ... thousands and thousands of well-qualified American citizens can’t get work in “American corporations” located in American cities....because the corporations fill up the vacancies with these cheaper foreigners
we know where the top graduates in one of America’s leading university have had difficulties (or utter failures) trying to just get interviews...... while the corporations keep putting out the propaganda about “not enough USA workers for the jobs here”... what BULLSHEIT!
More good policy.
Agreed. I have family in tech and they complain that most of the visa new hires are barely competent in basic tech, and not at all competent in the advanced tech they were hired to do. This means resources are sidetracked for months bringing the visa people up to speed, which costs the company in production and progress. They are, in fact, a drain instead of an asset. The only plus is that they will work 16 hours a day without complaining for fear they will be let go and have to go home.
We’re being flooded with H1B’s and their families in Jacksonville, FL. Baymeadows Street in Jacksonville is now Bombaymeadows St.
Seems like when we get tough in one area illegal immigration for example our side has to concede somewhere else. This is so disappointing if ture.
This is the way to lose professionals. He will lose me if he does this. This is so bad I cannot describe how bad this would be.
SillyCon Valley is now MAJORITY foreign born or H1Bs or the like, largely from Communist China or other Asian countries
and the “American” corporations” just expoert many of the rest of these “American” jobs to Communist Chinese labor camps, etc
all the while, qualified Americans and American students seeking jobs.. get the SHAFT...
in some instances, top American students aren’t even given the courtesy of answers to their job applications (nor even “perfunctory” interviews) ..by the “American” corporations (including the one who manufactured the computer this screed is being typed on... manufactured in Communist China)....
That statement doesn’t sound in line with an “America First” policy.
Who knows what he means by it, though? It sounds vague.
Here we go. We will get a wall on the back of American IT workers. The fix is in. Donald is throwing IT workers under the bus for political cover. Wow. Trump is not that bright after all. He’s lost. Hello President Harris.
A really bad idea. No deal.
It doesn’t sound like because it’s not. It’s a Wall Street Corporate America first statement. Wow, he figured out how to lose my support.
