Judge upholds Donald Trump’s restrictions on H1-B visas

September 7, 2020

Back in June of this year Donald Trump issued an Executive Order temporarily banning H1-B visas in an attempt to help American workers who lost their jobs due to the over-reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic by many of the State governors.

As expected the lawsuits quickly followed and on Friday a Judge upheld the ban on H1-B visas, here is more:

A federal judge on Friday rejected a lawsuit by business groups and is allowing President Donald Trump to temporarily bar the entry of foreign contract workers who are hired to take the U.S. jobs needed by Americans.

The decision is a big labor rights win for American employees because it recognizes a president can use his authority under section 212(f) of federal law to block the inflow of foreign workers if they have a damaging impact on Americans’ economic circumstances.

The decision is a big setback for the Fortune 500 companies objecting to Trump’s June 22 proclamation. The proclamation temporarily bars the entry of foreign workers via the huge H-1B, J-1, H-2B, and L-1 labor pipelines, which keep roughly two million compliant and cheap contract workers in jobs needed by unemployed blue collar and white collar Americans.

Here is more:

“The court rejects the Plaintiffs’ statutory and constitutional challenges to the Proclamations … [and] the court concludes that the Plaintiffs are not likely to succeed on their challenges to the Proclamations,”

This is a big win for Donald Trump’s immigration and economic policies but we know that this is going to be appealed so this is not over by a long shot.

    Yes, the ‘criminals’ will appeal it and continue Biz their MO as usual – lawlessness.
    The ‘World’ needs a DeTox cleansing!
    Just like our bodies are attacked by parasites, worms, cancers and viruses – many man-made & induced – so is the world in the physical and spiritual realms.
    Nice to hear This though – a Win for the Good of (Real) Americans!
