Trump signs executive order cracking down on H-1B visa job outsourcing

President Trump issued a surprise executive order on Monday morning cracking down on the outsourcing of skilled jobs to foreign workers while the pandemic rages — an important step in Trump’s “America First” agenda.

Breitbart reported:

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday which curbs the H-1B outsourcing of jobs at government agencies, including the government-controlled Tennessee Valley Authority.

“We believe jobs must be offered to American workers first,” Trump told attendees at a signing event in the White House.

As unemployment skyrockets due to coronavirus-induced lockdowns, Democrats continue to clamor for more immigration, but Trump has made the decision to prioritize employing Americans first.

Roughly 30,000 jobs in government agencies have been filled with foreign contract-workers through the H-1B visa program. Additionally, Breitbart reported that “Currently, Fortune 500 companies keep at least 1.3 million foreign contract-workers in jobs needed by U.S. graduates, including at least 600,000 H-1B workers.”

The White House issued a statement explaining the intent of the order:

President Trump is signing an Executive Order to create a policy where Federal agencies will focus on United States labor in lucrative Federal contracts.

It would be unfair for Federal employers to replace perfectly qualified Americans with workers from other countries.

The Executive Order will require all Federal agencies to complete an internal audit and assess whether they are in compliance with the requirement that only United States citizens and nationals are appointed to the competitive service.

The Department of Labor will also finalize guidance to prevent H-1B employers from moving H-1B workers to other employers’ job sites to displace American workers.

Trump also ordered a temporary halt to H-1B inflow on June 22 and ordered administration officials to re-draft rules for foreign workers for Fortune 500 companies to prioritize the hiring of American graduates.

  1. I would love to see all of the media that blocks conservatives be facing the break up totally. Every News media outlet who lies and does not allow both sides of a story with facts to support the stories should be faced with their licenses totally pulled and never be allowed to conduct that type of business again. Those requirements include but are not limited to the following:
    MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, Twitter, Facebook, Google, and any other Left leaning media. The executives including their presidents should be faced with five years in prison for blocking fair and balanced news and participation.

    1. Steven, I agree! My cousin can’t drive, is a widow and sits at home watching TV all day. For some reason, she trusts everything she sees and hears. Well, yesterday she was rushed to the ER. She was terrified that she had that virus. I blame the media for filling her head with all that garbage. They need to be held accountable.

    2. Totally agree! We must not let the news media determine which side of the story they will let the public hear. Especially is this true for our candidates that are expressing their views for the public to determine who they will vote for.

    3. I agree 100%! we shouldn’t be giving jobs to non Americans. Especially while our country has closed down our economy and U.S. citizens are out of work. America first then we can help when we really need more help and Americans aren’t available to work. All the Dem.’s want to do is open the boarders for cheep labor and future voters.

  2. Good for Trump. the Democrats don’t give a toss about American workers, they should be ashamed, they are doing everything they can to destroy America, and I wonder what nefarious plan they are hatching now. They showed us who they are when they have been plotting against President Trump even before he was elected. The poison that is running through the Democratic party is alive and well, and being fed by Nancy Pelosi, she is the most disgusting entity, ( I won’t call her a person) and is only interested in getting rid of President Trump, and she and her cabal do not care how many Americans they hurt in the process. Please help our President to stay in power and keep us all safe from this ugly cabal of evil entities, who are not interested in a fair election, but in holding onto power. They have totally thrown out the law is “whoever wins gets an opportunity to implement the things they told the people they would, and many thousands voted for him, upon his platform. God bless us all, GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

  3. The DEMS can take their labors and go to their country and stay there for ever, and they also take all of the hateful lairs and money robbers , and yes, even those who kneel when our awesome national song,and send them to those countries, and yes, make them pay back all of the social security monies they have taken from the people who depend on those monies.

  4. If they want to get rid of the H-1B people out of the VA half the doctors you can’t understand hire medical Students who went to school on taxpayers dime

  5. President Trump does not lie. They can’t buy him or manipulate him, so Democrats lie to make him look bad. Joe Biden has lost his mind. If he wins election, VP will be calling the shots. Trump has faced criticism and cruelty from Democrats as well as unethical presss-media. The real fact is we need President Trump four more years

  6. Good. I am sick and tired of calling a federal agency and getting some one with broken English and I end up asking for some one who speaks English so I can get off the blasted phone. Americans should be doing government jobs not foreigners.

  7. Corupt Dems want to cheat. mail in voting,using illegals.used the virus from day one .lock down.kill trumps economy.big tec and MSM brainwash voters..biden and Islam AOC will distroy america..Trump 2020

    1. Agree.Have since the very beginning of covid. Democrats have done their best to instill fear in all of us. They have been responsible for more nursing home deaths who have demos for mayors. And if Biden is elected you will see the handicapped and the elderly medically put to death. They will stop paying for treatment of medications for this part of the population. And this will include downs syndrome , medical handicapped children who will never be productive citizens. So think clearly on what kind of a country you want to raise your children in . Freedom or socalism.

  8. MR. PRESIDENT, thank you being a man of your WORD. Another campaign promise DELIVERED.
    Now more than ever, I say FOUR MORE YEARS ….

  9. I agree fully with each of the comments made above. If only all those who seemingly “ride the fence” about this election would come to their senses and see all the good that President Trump has accomplished we would have no doubts about giving him a second term. If Biden gets elected our economy and everything this country stands for will be destroyed. Four years of Joe Biden and all of the mistakes he has made in trying to have a simple conversation will be proof enough that he is not the man to be president. Hopefully everyone who has listened to Joe Biden will recognize his inability to have a conversation that makes sense and then exercise their right to vote for the right candidate – DONALD J. TRUMP!

  10. I AM DONE WITH THIS NONSENSE! For the last 2-4 days, I have been censored! NO MORE! This is worse than FascistBook!!!
