  • Proclamation on the Suspension of Entry as Nonimmigrants of Certain Students and Researchers from the People’s Republic of China

    05/29/2020 3:32:16 PM PDT · by ransomnote · 11 replies ^ | May 29, 2020 | President Donald J Trump
    The People’s Republic of China (PRC) is engaged in a wide‑ranging and heavily resourced campaign to acquire sensitive United States technologies and intellectual property, in part to bolster the modernization and capability of its military, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The PRC’s acquisition of sensitive United States technologies and intellectual property to modernize its military is a threat to our Nation’s long-term economic vitality and the safety and security of the American people. The PRC authorities use some Chinese students, mostly post‑graduate students and post-doctorate researchers, to operate as non-traditional collectors of intellectual property. Thus, students or researchers from the...

    Paradise Falls, located 40 miles north of Los Angeles, has long been one of the state's 'most-treasured natural wonders', but The Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency barricaded access to the attraction Friday in light of bad behavior. . . . 'While trash cans are available, many simply left it for COSCA staff to clean up and trash accumulated faster than it could be removed.' According to the organization, there were additional problems with 'human waste and sanitation as many used areas along the creek both upstream and downstream as a toilet'. One official told Thousand Oaks Acorn that people were...
  • 10 years of US H1B visa policies overturned by settlement

    According to an article published by Forbes, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has reached an agreement with business group, ITServe Alliance, which brings to an end a decade of restrictive H1B visa policies imposed on employers. The settlement comes following two key rulings against USCIS.On March 20, 2020 a District Court opinion rejected key actions taken by USCIS, while more recently, on May 20, a judge in Georgia ruled against USCIS policies. For many employers, problems they encountered with USCIS started back on January 8, 2010 after the ‘Neufeld’ memo was issued.In the memo, USCIS seized the authority...

    Government agencies around the country are hiring thousands of foreign H-1B workers to fill well-paid government jobs needed by U.S. graduates. The governments’ hidden workforces of roughly 18,000 H-1B employees are an easy target for President Donald Trump as he searches for ways to open up good jobs for the many American graduates who have been forced out of jobs by the coronavirus crash. Trump also needs to do something because he has yet to begin to deliver any part of his dramatic 2016 campaign trail promise: “I will end the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program...

    The White House on Sunday announced that the U.S. would bar entry of non-citizens traveling from Brazil, which has seen a sharp rise in coronavirus cases in previous weeks. The Trump administration “has determined that the Federative Republic of Brazil is experiencing widespread, ongoing person-to-person transmission” of the virus, according to a White House statement. Brazil reported over 347,000 COVID-19 cases as of Friday, second behind the U.S. in the number of infections, according to a Johns Hopkins University count. Brazil also has recorded over 22,000 deaths, which would make it the fifth-most in the world. There have been more...

    President Donald Trump is expected to shrink a huge work permit program that quietly allows companies to hire foreign employees for the jobs needed by U.S. graduates in the coronavirus crash, according to the Wall Street Journal.“The coming temporary restrictions, the officials say, are designed to help American graduates looking for entry-level work during the pandemic-fueled economic downturn,” said the March 23 article. They are expected to come in a package of new immigration restrictions President Trump has said he would issue in an executive order, likely in the next few weeks, though they are still subject to White House...

    The Saint Catherine Church in the small town of Moria on Lesvos, is now being used as a bathroom. A local in Moria described the scene. “The smell inside is unbearable,” said Makis Pavlellis, a butcher. “Discussing with people about the Church, we learned that the metropolitan of Mytilene is aware of the situation in the area nevertheless he does not wish to deal with it for his own reasons.” Only earlier this month Greek City Times reported that the Saint Catherine church in Moria was already trashed by illegal immigrants.

    President Donald Trump and his deputies have shut down the coyote-run smuggling pipeline that has used federal agencies to deliver almost 500,000 youths and children to their illegal-alien parents living in northern cities. The success in closing the 12-year-old “Unaccompanied Alien Child”‘ pipeline was admitted by the New York Times: "The deportations represent an extraordinary shift in policy that has been unfolding in recent weeks on the southwestern border" The shutdown is allowed by the combination of China’s coronavirus and by Congress’s Title 42 law. The Title 42 law allows border agents to block any migrants coming across the border...

    A group of GOP lawmakers led by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) is calling on the Trump administration to temporarily stop issuing any new guest-worker visas amid the coronavirus pandemic. In a letter sent to President Trump on Wednesday, the lawmakers praised the White House’s decision to limit the number of immigrants coming into the country during the health crisis, but argued more action needs to be taken to ensure Americans who have lost their jobs due to the outbreak have ample opportunities to find new employment. “We should not force Americans to compete with foreign nationals while...
