Donald Trump is signing an executive order that would prevent American companies from hiring foreign workers putting Americans first. He’ll do this by overhauling the H-1b visa program.
This program enables companies in need of staff to employ non-American workers that possess certain skills that job seekers in America do not have.
However, America stands firm that it does have the needed educated entities, so importing other individuals is waste of money and time. Companies, such as Disney, Southern California Edison, Fossil Group and others dismissed Americans from position and have found replacements for them in foreigners.
This program has to be executed by Congress; still, Trump is able to shift the authorities and to make the desired changes. If this happens, American companies will have to employ their own citizens in accordance with their skills.
“Our country’s immigration policies should be designed and implemented to serve, first and foremost, the U.S. national interest,” a draft reviewed by Bloomberg reads. “Visa programs for foreign workers … should be administered in a manner that protects the civil rights of American workers and current lawful residents, and that prioritizes the protection of American workers — our forgotten working people — and the jobs they hold.”
A 2015 investigation carried out by Obama’s administration and regarding the H-1b program malpractice brought no results. Afterwards, numerous reports surfaced from companies that employed non-Americans but fired the U.S. citizens and even forced them to teach the imported workers skills regarding the job.
One such example comes from a former Disney employee and it dates from May of 2015.
It was just a complete shock that you could do that in this country,” he told TheDCNF, adding: “Twenty years of hard work, technical skill building, fostering relationships, a bachelor’s degree in IT, guided me to a coveted position as an IT engineer at Disney. And that was just wiped out.”
According to the current laws, America allows around 1 million immigrants and around 700,000 foreign workers to have jobs in America on a yearly basis. According to the Census Bureau, the foreigners working in America will reach a number of 51 million by 2023, and that is just unacceptable for our country.
