Can Trump Stop The H-1b Scam That Eliminates US Workers?

 

 

Huge, rich corporations have been replacing citizen workers with aliens who are brought in by the Bilderberg gang to run businesses with people easy to deport if they cause troubles.  $80 billion a year is spent on keeping Congress happy with this importation of jobs that kick citizens out of work.  Roughly 650,000 foreign H-1B workers are employed in a wide variety of white-collar jobs in the United States,

 

…including roughly 100,000 as academics, teachers, doctors, therapists, scientists, and designers at American universities. Overall, roughly 1 million foreign college-grads are employed as contract workers in the United States, even as 800,000 Americans graduate from college each year with skilled degrees to compete for well-paying jobs.

 

Both Bush Jr. and Obama allowed this to happen.  Nay, helped this along.  The displacement of us workers by aliens is a gigantic problem.  In every level from the lowest jobs to the top jobs are seeing aliens hired before citizens.  Many citizens are fired and replaced with aliens working cheaper and with no benefits.

 

Disney did this a month ago, for example.  Liberals have been in collusion about how foreign labor is pouring into the country.  Note how ‘liberal’ media and leaders are screaming at us to bring in and give our jobs to illegal aliens. From Russian TV:

 

Note that mainstream Fake News won’t talk much about this since the owners of fake news are doing the same thing, replacing citizens with aliens.

 

Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump criticized the H-1B program, which is used by many American companies, including Comcast, Carnival, Disney, McDonalds, Caterpillar and Uber. The Indian firms usually rent their H-1B employees out to brand-name American companies.

 

The increased supply of foreign graduates pushes many middle-aged American professionals out of their careers, and pushes younger American graduates into different careers with lower salaries. The sidelined American professionals and their families have been a huge source of support for Trump among university-educated voters because of Trump’s promise to reform the program.

 

Trump’s plan to reform the H-1B programs is expected to appear in the next few months, amid determined efforts by major U.S. companies – such as Microsoft and Google – to keep their reserve army of foreign professionals. On Friday, Trump met with top business advisors, many of whom oppose his January decision to exclude would-be immigrants with “hostile attitudes.”

 

Just stopping TERRORISTS from entering the country has the liberals screaming.  And the ‘liberal’ judges aka: BILDERBERG appointed by either Bilderberg Bush or Bilderberg Obama, they are siding with aliens against the US people.  Stopping all this will be a titanic effort and since Congress is still very corrupted, it will be amazing if anyone succeeds and protecting US workers.  Comments to the above article nearly uniformly are pro-US citizen workers:

Universities are also using the lure of the one-year Practical Training jobs foreign students are allowed after graduating and the very high likelihood that these will lead to an H1-B and then to a green card. They advertise this in their overseas information campaigns and have counselors on campus to guide international students on how to secure a green card (and how to get welfare). They market themselves as green card conduits.

 

Many international students cough up the tuition for the main purpose of immigrating, bypassing the usual legal routes.

 

It’s a kind of human trafficking.

That’s correct. The bulk of H1B visas goes to the companies which hire from the bottom of the pyramid in India. I am from India and I know this for a fact.
US colleges have programs like MIS which are filled with Indian students and are hired for 60-65 k/yr.
There was a time when the best of the best from India would be admitted into the US. Nowadays, the worst talent has made US H1B visas their own.
The minimum salary for H1B should be raised to 130k+ and hiring should only be done for STEM fields. There should be no hiring of MBAs from outside US using H1B route.
I also wouldn’t mind a very tough test to filter candidates for H1B which would bring forward the truly deserving candidates and not the trash that exploit the H1B nowadays.

Pure outright bullshit. Health care companies fire US workers but prior to firing, force their American staff to train H1B visa holders or no severance pay. Look it up happening all over the US. Disney did it, Emblem Health, http://www.healthcareitnews.co…

 

EmblemHealth to lay off hundreds of IT workers as it outsources to Cognizant

Lawsuits Claim Disney Colluded to Replace U.S. Workers With Immigrants

Large Companies Game H-1B Visa Program, Costing the U.S. Jobs

 

So, who is going to appeal to people who understand what is going on due to harsh reality slapping them in the face?  So far, it is only Trump and no one else.  He has a huge potential trump card in the deck when confronting all the super-rich who got that way via replacing citizens with illegal and legal aliens.

 

Will people wake up and do something?  Already, some states are so saturated with illegal aliens, they are allowed to vote and thus, continue this dangerous invasion status quo…time is running out.

 

Many of these aliens refuse to learn the common language and come from countries in Eastern Europe, Europe, Asia and the Americas where even small language differences leads to civil war and violent overthrowing of governments and even outright wars with neighbors!

 

This is a real danger to any sense of unity in the US.  It has been a danger since day one.

    Elaine, don’t you think that the H-1b phenomenon is symptomatic of a deeper malaise, namely the culture of the Leveraged Buy Out. This financial innovation above all has morphed into the Grim Reaper for business, especially when it is turbo charged with cheap credit. Anyone who demonstrates an unwillingness to take any and all measures to fatten the bottom line is a prime target for these fuckers. Type “LBO fear” into your favourite search engine to see the scale of this problem. Anyway, I also started looking for critiques and came across the following by Taibbi (who has disappointed me recently with his special snowflakism).

    http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/greed-and-debt-the-true-story-of-mitt-romney-and-bain-capital-20120829
    “Mitt Romney, it turns out, is the perfect frontman for Wall Street’s greed revolution. He’s not a two-bit, shifty-eyed huckster like Lloyd Blankfein. He’s not a sighing, eye-rolling, arrogant jerkwad like Jamie Dimon. But Mitt believes the same things those guys believe: He’s been right with them on the front lines of the financialization revolution, a decades-long campaign in which the old, simple, let’s-make-stuff-and-sell-it manufacturing economy was replaced with a new, highly complex, let’s-take-stuff-and-trash-it financial economy. Instead of cars and airplanes, we built swaps, CDOs and other toxic financial products. Instead of building new companies from the ground up, we took out massive bank loans and used them to acquire existing firms, liquidating every asset in sight and leaving the target companies holding the note. The new borrow-and-conquer economy was morally sanctified by an almost religious faith in the grossly euphemistic concept of “creative destruction,” and amounted to a total abdication of collective responsibility by America’s rich, whose new thing was making assloads of money in ever-shorter campaigns of economic conquest, sending the proceeds offshore, and shrugging as the great towns and factories their parents and grandparents built were shuttered and boarded up, crushed by a true prairie fire of debt.”

    Elaine touched on a point I want to explore in more depth.

    A lot of foreigners come to America to “study” but are really here to take American jobs, and American spots in elite universities. I know of several Americans who cannot get into medical and other professional schools because the schools fill the slots with foreign students. Then these “students” refuse to go back to their home countries to use the skills learned in the US. Instead, they stay here to take the professional jobs which Americans would have loved to have filled.

    What’s more, the foreigners uniformly have an attitude of superiority, and also speak with such a heavy accent that it is difficult to understand them.

    The simple solution for this problem is to force these “students” to return to their home countries upon graduating, and then deny them re-admission for at least 5 years. This would also benefit their home countries, since the supposed reason for allowing the “students” to study in America is to train people for the benefit of their home country. By making them return home, it will promote the supposed reason for them filling up our schools.

  3. emsnews

    Correct. Obviously. You see, these foreign students pay extra to go to school here so the schools want them, not citizens.

  4. Petruchio

    It shouldn’t matter what the aptitudes of these foreign students are! NO matter how brilliant these foreign students are, they should be given a secondary priority to the “homegrown” students. Why? Because long time residents of a State have been TAXPAYERS for all the years they have lived in their home State. It costs MONEY to sustain a University/College. Universities GET taxpayer funds. This is simple Economics: s/he who is paying the freight, gets to go to the line AHEAD of foreign and Out-of-State students. Think of it this way: who on Earth would give a foreigner a car AND pay for this car 100%. If foreign students want to come to the US to study and get degrees, tell them to bring their checkbooks. It’s going to be expensive. And then: when their time limit in this country is up, they go back to their native born countries.

    Pet, foreigners MAY be here legally. Obama and the left wants the Dreamers in our schools, getting free money and a free education.

  7. DeVaul

    @ Petruchio

    I doubt Trump can stop this scam because it is so deeply ingrained in a certain class of people that are referred to as the “salaried class”. They benefited from this program, but now they are about to be outsourced by it and similar programs.

    For example, my own boss, a salaried worker, did not believe me when I told him about the HB-1 Visa program even though I was friends with the immigration lawyer at our firm and also knew a German family that got in on this program. He said that American students who have degrees in computer science and can’t find a job are just “lazy”.

    A week later, the Wall Street Journal did a front page report on this program, and I showed it to my boss. Instead of acknowledging it, he just grumbled something and refused to accept what was obvious. Those that serve the rich and powerful will never question this program until they are replaced by an HB-1 worker.

    As for the German family, the father was an electrical engineer who designed and maintained the electrical systems on cruise ships and other large ships. How he came to be in Lexington, KY, is not known to me, but they bought a house and their daughter was my daughter’s best friend.

    What was interesting is this: he was highly educated and skilled, yet he barely made enough money to feed his family. He had to build his own roof! He could not afford to hire anyone to fix things at home, and he was gone to port cities for many weeks while his wife ran the house.

    They eventually moved to Seattle, where they now live in a slum district near the docks because they could not afford an apartment or house anywhere in Seattle. I assume he is paid half or one quarter of what an American electrical engineer would have been paid, and maybe he does not even get Social Security benefits. I don’t know, but the fact that they were poor was just unbelievable. Obviously, the program is designed to slash salaries.

    I doubt Trump has the time to deal with this problem right now since we are facing war with Iran and our troops are being deployed on Russia’s border. Also, he is busy gutting the financial regulations that tried to stop another real estate bubble after 2008, but Elaine does not care about that anymore, so we will not see an article about that and its implications for the economy.

  8. Christian W

    Slashing of US worker salaries is a US CEO specialty.

  9. Petruchio

    What I don’t understand is why the students and their parents are not picking up pitchforks and heading to the Universities AND their State Legislatures DEMANDING changes, not asking for them. How people can passively accept their fate of being in debt for life and not threatening their State legislators mystifies me. And parents of students should be screaming their lungs out at their legislators about foreign students in Universities. As I said earlier, a student who has lived in a State for, say, 20 years should have automatic priority over a foreign students. If you have been paying taxes to support a University, you SHOULD have advantages over foreign students. Not just in Admissions, but in getting in to the various schools within the University. They have been paying for it; it’s a simple matter of who has been paying for the University.

  10. emsnews

    State universities are no longer taxpayer-paid. They are hideously expensive today for ALL students. When I went to school way back in 1967 and onwards, I was either free or very small fees, I paid my rent/food via working in bars only during the summer months and lived just fine and a can of soup was only 8 cents. YES, 8 cents and gasoline was only 18 cents a gallon. I had my own truck I rebuilt myself.

    Life was easy…then inflation began and boy, it became hell fast.

  11. DeVaul

    @ Petruchio

    Actually, the same goes for public schools, and where I live, the parents have become angry with the school administrators who are essentially burocrats who do nothing but stymie efforts by teachers to change anything.

    Their office is on Main Street, and it is a hotbed of intrigue, protest, and corruption, as well as downright insanity. Most parents try to avoid them if at all possible. I did this by only talking to the principal of my daughter’s school when she and my wife were planning on visiting relatives in Thailand, and it worked out fine. The person at the main office screamed at my wife on the phone about “homeschooling”, which was not what we were doing.

    However, after my daughter graduates from elementary school this year, I will be homeschooling her. They have gutted the schools by separating the smart kids AND THEIR SIBLINGS and placing them in special schools for the gifted AND THEIR NOT SO GIFTED SIBLINGS. It is an open secret that upper middle class parents use to move their children out of the regular schools, leaving behind only the students from poor families.

    They jerry-rigged my neighborhood to be in a run down school that is down town and far from us instead of allowing us to go to the middle school that is right near us. That school has been reserved for the mostly white suburban kids from the rich neighborhoods to the east and south of the school. Many parents in my neighborhood are angry about this obvious attempt to separate children by the socio-economic class of their parents.

    As for the university, I know there are many foreign students there, but it was because enrollment dropped among kids from Kentucky, who could not afford the cost of tuition and also because of a drop in the birthrate. The foreign kids seem to come from wealthy families abroad, and they pay full tuition, which I guess is why the university wants them so badly. I don’t know if there are any special programs to help them at UK or not, but I do know that most Kentucky kids cannot afford tuition anymore even after paying taxes for the university all their lives.

    A university should be free to students from that state if they qualify for admission. This was the German system, and it seemed to work well, but rich people would never allow it to happen here since their dumb kids would not qualify for admission. Those who did not qualify could attend vocational schools for free, thus learning a trade that would enable them to support themselves later in life. We don’t have any vocational schools like that.

  12. Petruchio

    “State universities are no longer taxpayer-paid.” I am curious where you get this information. In my home State, that most certainly is NOT the case. I recall a couple of years ago, the President of the University met with the Senate majority leader and they hashed out University funding. They met behind closed doors and AFTER the Legislative Session had officially ended. (That’s supposed to be against the Rules!L LOL) The deal was this (the part we know of): the University would be allowed to raise tuition IF the Legislature would OK a huge building project for the University. That sounds like taxpayer funding to me. Elaine, these University types–and their servants in the Legislature–are weasels extraordinaire. Feeding at the Public trough is what they do–one way or another. I bet if you were to look into how Universities in your home State get their funds, you would see that they do the same type of things.

  13. emsnews

    It is not 100% but it is still far, far less than when I went to school. It was fairly cheap back then! When students must pay $20,000 PER YEAR to go to school, this means public funding is less than 50%.

    And note the public funding is often for BUILDINGS not staff. Indeed, there has been this huge building boom on all campuses and administration staff has risen tripling in size while tenured professors went from more than 50% to nearly or totally vanishing.

    Even as I am disputed here, Petruchio, you admit this is happening to your local university: ‘They met behind closed doors and AFTER the Legislative Session had officially ended. (That’s supposed to be against the Rules!L LOL) The deal was this (the part we know of): the University would be allowed to raise tuition IF the Legislature would OK a huge building project for the University.’

    See how that works? Construction was voted after the session ended and local guys get big contracts, students pay much more tuition and the whittling down continues. Thank you for the fine example as to how they do this trick.

  14. Lou

    I can top ‘huge building project for the University.’—Santa Monica College
    is a construction site, for a decade or 2. One huge hole has been there for nearly a decade.
    And the City Hall is to be rebuilt [nothing wrong with the old one].
    The City ‘workers’ want a 143 million dollar city hall.
    Priciest in USA history. Once it is paid for it will be 20k? per square foot.

  15. emsnews

    Detroit’s city government built this gigantic city hall and school hall and then went bankrupt as car making departed suddenly.

  16. Petruchio

    “See how that works? ” Elaine, you may still be missing something here. Let’s look at the numbers. For now, let’s just focus on how much taxpayer funds have been going to the Universities on a year-to year basis. They have not declined!

    YES!!! The Universities are gouging the students more and more each and every year. No one doubts that tuition THAT THE STUDENTS PAY has gone up.

    My point? Here it is: taxpayer funding of Universities AND ever rising tuition prices can happen AT THE SAME TIME! It is only an accounting trick to say that taxpayer funding has been going down because tuition has been going up.

    Technically, this is true, but it doesn’t diminish the significant sums the taxpayer pays for a University. Tell ya what, Elaine. Let’s slash taxpayer funds to Universities to ASOLUTE ZERO.

    No back door funding, no disguised funding, no NOTHING. If the University needs a new parking lot, let them get the money to pay for it from their own bank account and if they have to raise tuition, so be it. You just watch, Elaine.

    As soon as student enrollment drops and profiteering and price gouging the student show a loss significant loss of revenue, the Universities will come crawling back to the taxpayer–and just like with Wall Street, the taxpayer will have to bail the Universities out. Oh and can hear the wailing from the University Administrators now.

    “If we want to maintain a World Class Institution of Higher Learning, we need to make a commitment to paying for it.” They better hope yours truly Petruchio isn’t in charge. I’d tell them we have the wrong people running the Universities so my response would be: “You mofo’s are out of a job”.

    ΩΩΩ

    ELAINE: I put in spaces, I suspect you had spaces and for some reason, it was eliminated. The issue of money for schools: virtually all of it goes to the administrators, sports team staff, infrastructure and the teachers get next to nothing. I think we should dump the entire mess and have people simply hire tutors.

    It would be cheaper and the students might actually learn something, agree? I speak as someone who dumped this mess long, long ago due to circumstances.

  17. DeVaul

    “I think we should dump the entire mess and have people simply hire tutors.”

    I actually agree with this at this point. My daughter just got another D in math and a C in language arts, but an A in social studies (American Mythology). At least the administrators got the message about too much meaningless homework. They declared Monday nights to be “Family Nights” with no homework. How kind.

  18. Petruchio

    Elaine, I’m all in favor of reforming the University system to where it is affordable for the student and his/her family. That is exactly what a State University SHOULD be doing. The problem is, the system is easily corrupted–and we see the natural result today. Anytime there’s a lot of money involved, the criminals show up and destroy the System. It’s what they do. If we can find a way to get and keep the Higher Ed system affordable, that would be ideal, but like someone else posted, if you have REAL Admission standards, a lot of the spoiled rotten rich kids don’t get into school.

  19. emsnews

    And…that is the solution. I still remember the competition for scholarships and schools because I took all the rigorous tests as did a few of my siblings (not all of them).

    You had to be GOOD to go to school. Then, feeling sorry for boys being sent to Vietnam to die, many schools let in more and more kids because they got deferment until Nixon nixed that, general panic ensuded.

    Well, the draft was canned not too long after due to so many people objecting.

    The thing here is, we have a dual system: some schools are very demanding and hard to get into (unless you are rich or connected) and all the others take in anyone and anything so long as they qualify for loans which have grown so fast, they are now one of the biggest debt bubbles today.

    This is all a looting expedition by the government and banks. And the worst growth happened under Obama.

  20. Lou

    the worst growth happened under Obama.
    Growth in immigrants.
    Growth in debt.
    The nation is growing, in debt.

  21. Name

    Growth in wars was a huge problem under the previous criminal-in-chief.

  22. Petruchio

    #19 Elaine: The truth of what you said, Exhibit 1AA: George W. Bush. He went to ALL the elite Prep schools (Andover being one) then he gets a degree from Yale and THEN gets a degree (MBA) from Harvard!! This is a guy who bragged about reading a book–once. I’d wager you that Georgie Boy Bush couldn’t pass an honest Graduation Exam–from High School.

    ΩΩΩ

    ELAINE: TRUE STORY: In 1966, when I was 15 years old, Andover Prep invited me on a scholarship to go to school there and be the first girl in. Seriously. I considered it but then was given a scholarship to the University of Kansas instead and went there.

  23. Petruchio

    “This is all a looting expedition by the government and banks. And the worst growth happened under Obama.” When I got my Student Loans, the UNIVERSITY got it first! They kept it for awhile and then let me have it. Here’s the kicker though: they got to skim something like 3% of the loan amount right off the top! What car dealer would be able to get away with this? Same question could be asked with every consumer loan. The only example I can think of are those “payday Loan” places. You know, the ones that will front you some cash based on your paycheck. Then these places gouge you for the loan. These places are always being investigated. They are Predatory lenders. Kind of like the folks running the Student Loan racket.

  24. emsnews

    Petruchio, so true, so true. And so many don’t get much of an education, either, even when they get some of the money.
