THE NEW ORDER EXTENDS the original 60-day pause President Trump signed on April 22, and goes further by pausing new H-1B tech worker visas, H-2B seasonal worker visas, certain J work and education exchange visitor visas and L executive transfer visas. It will be in effect until the end of the year, but will not affect those who already have a visa.

Exemptions from the ban include some health care workers directly related to COVID-19, and agricultual guest-workers under H-2A. Other exemptions include those in the original green card order, including for members of the U.S. military.

The ban is expected to free-up 500,000 to 600,000 jobs for Americans by the end of the year. Some Republican lawmakers had been strongly calling on Trump to enact these further measures. But on Wednesday, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden called the new order a “distraction” from the president's failure to lead on the coronavirus and said “Immigrants help grow our economy and create jobs.”

Trump recently visited the U.S. southern border in Arizona to mark the completion of the 200th mile of new wall built. An equal amount of new wall is expected to be added by the end of 2020 since the President finally managed to overcome the obstacles put in his way by the liberal courts and the Democrats.

Other features of the order make it more difficult for companies to replace U.S. Labor with newly arrived workers, set higher wages for H-1B holders, and probe for potential abuses in the program.

On Monday, the administration also presented the final version of a regulation that will render most border-crossers seeking asylum ineligible for work authorization. Under this rule, work permits will not be available to asylum-seekers who crossed the border illegally or to those convicted of certain crimes, like driving under the influence. The Trump administration has long argued that most migrants who trek to the southern border file meritless asylum claims to gain easy entry into the U.S. in search of job opportunities. This regulation is expected to take effect in late August.


Bringing in any workers i.e. doctors, engineers to slaughter house workers, toilet cleaners brings down the wages for those people now in the USA and puts MORE people on welfare/unemployment.  What we need to do is raise the income tax on the super rich to 90+% with NO Way to take the money out of the USA.  Also, bring back the death tax to $500,000.oo with NO FOUNDATIONS.  Change the Federal Reserve from jew control to a government agency like Iceland did in 2008.

Looks like your tax policy is the same as Elizabeth Warren's.

The government should not ban or bar the movement of any persons across its borders in either direction.

The most important job of any government is to protect the safety and security of its members or citizens from foreign invasion. Are you saying people should do this on their own personal initiative? How would that work?

And do you prefer Biden over Trump?

How many of the short-sighted, white fools out there know that our President Trump last year STOPPED plans to replace Andrew Jackson with with abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.

He expresses admiration (as do I; how about you?) for Jackson, who was a slaveowner and is a target of protesters.

Received a text from a friend, Australian Holocaust Revisionist and longtime CarolynYeager.Net associate Dr Frederick Töben has died.
I had first met Fred some 15 years ago. A man of great personal courage, he could be at times prickly and argumentative. That's understandable, because he was persecuted to an extraordinary degree.
Tonight I'll drink some wine and listen to some Wagner in your honour, Fred, RIP

Thanks for this timely information, David. It's taken many by surprise.

Did you know?
Dr. Tobin had your blog link on his site, wonder if you have anything to say on yours.
