Trump Restoring American Jobs

Fairfax, Va. – Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, issued the following statement in reaction to the Labor and Homeland Security Departments’ joint announcement of interim final new rules to the H1b visa programs.

“I applaud the Trump administration for once again taking action to restore American jobs destroyed by Joe Biden’s failed policies. The administration is moving forward with reforms the H1b visa program that will protect our nation’s workers from insourcing cheap labor in violation of the law’s intent.

“Over the years, the program became little more than a way for multi-nationals to import cheap foreign labor displacing highly skilled U.S. employees

“President Trump promised to protect Americans who were losing their jobs to low-cost foreign labor through the H1b visa program.  During the Obama/Biden years, it became an all too familiar story of IT staffs at places like Disney and Southern California Edison being laid off en masse to accommodate the employment of foreign workers. Requirements that they train their replacements under threat of losing job loss payments was like putting salt in a wound.

“Today, the Trump administration is moving forward with much needed reforms that will end this abuse of the system and protect our nation’s workers from insourcing cheap labor in violation of the law’s intent.”

“The Labor and Homeland Security Department’s deserve tremendous praise for their on-going work to keep President Trump’s promise to America’s workforce to put them first.”
