Democrat mayors and governors have made it clear that they do not want Trump’s help in squelching the uprisings in their cities, so Donald Trump has decided to continue working on solutions for the real problems facing Americans.
The US economy has been devastated by the coronavirus crisis, and according to White House insiders, Donald Trump is stepping up efforts to make sure that Americans can get back to work as quickly as possible.
According to new reports, Donald Trump is considering a months-long suspension of work visas as the US continues to battle coronavirus and the economic fallout from the lockdowns.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the suspension “could bar any new H-1B holder outside the country from coming to work until the suspension is lifted, though visa holders already in the country are unlikely to be affected.”
The move to suspend H-1B visas, also known as guest-worker visas, would allow thousands of American technology workers to take jobs that would otherwise be given to temporary foreign workers.
Millions of Americans are struggling to find jobs in the aftermath of extended coronavirus lockdowns, and Trump’s move towards extending the suspension of the visa program could help the economy bounce back even faster than it is currently.
Trump originally signed an order suspending the award of visas in April, and the expected extension of the order could bar outside workers from gaining access to American jobs until the fall.
“The administration is currently evaluating a wide range of options, formulated by career experts, to protect American workers and job seekers, especially disadvantaged and under-served citizens,” said Hogan Gidley in a statement this week, going on to say that no official decision has been made as of yet.
