The US economy relies on immigrant labor Cheap labor is necessary for agriculture, service industriesand manufacturing and construction. Trump always used illegal aliens in his construction to keep costs down. The big US corporations moved their production out of the country to get cheaper labor. Who is going to cook and clean the Upper Classes houses if they stop all immigrants- they will starve to death.

Some companies offer retirement balloons or buyouts to get you to leave. Maybe trump should offer this to lefties to get us to leave.
It wouldn’t take a lot for many of us to grab and go.
But I suppose he is happier sucking the life out of the working class.

Around half the country is out of work. Huge numbers of highly skilled Americans are looking for jobs and spending their dwindling resources on going to interviews only to find that the advertised job was fake, the ad only placed to satisfy some requirement that they look for and fail in finding an American so they can outsource a job to (isually Indian) IT companies that charge around half of what an Americans burdened rate would be but as far as what they pay the worker, they barely pay minimum wage, and then they take out a lot for apartment, food and sometimes car. So that the person is basically working for nothing. For the experience.

Meanwhile, higher education is being slashed. Trade deals are locking in these outsourcing schemes and we’re being sued in the WTO to get rid of all the limits on guest slavery.

Young people are beginning to realize they wont have any future. What is Common Dreams doing? Are you part of the solution or part of the propaganda? Part of the cover up.

Hello? is anybody there at Common Dreams?

They dont need to move production to get cheaper labor. You should know this, after all this article is about work visas.

By next year, the limits on work visas will likely be gone thanks to the WTO. Then the outsourcing of all of our good jobs can begin for real.

“Trump and his extremist advisor Stephen Miller.” {And to be able to pin all this immigration situation to one guy, steve miller, is whacky.}
“The Trump administration has banned asylum seekers at the border, green card applicants, foreign students, and now even more immigrants, who are instrumental to our nation’s economic recovery,” the group (aclu) said. “Congress should immediately investigate the true purpose—and ramifications—of these Stephen Miller bans.”

The highlighted / bold = balderdash - totally.
Here we have brand new immigrants from India working as cash register clerks at gas stations, corner stores, etc. So, the story may apply at H1B1 employer sponsored visa, but not at F student, H4, spouse, etc.

At this time and likely for forty more months, we do not need the IT clerks from India and other places.
We have lost millions of jobs since March and the early jump start back in some states has backfired, costing us 35,000 to 45,000 more DEAD by Thanksgiving compared to a more cautious open up schedule proposed by public health.

Nobody will take us unless you’re bringing half a million (or a lot more) with you.

And we would likely have to buy into their healthcare policy to get coverage. Be quarantined for weeks.
Trump will have to up the ante on our buyouts.
I already got screwed by trump’s tax package. Paying thousands more than I would have previously.
Donny, you lying devil.
