SUMMARY: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is proposing to amend its regulations related to certain employment – based immigrant and nonimmigrant visa program. The proposed amendments would provide various benefits to participants in those programs, including: improved processes for U.S. employers seeking to sponsor and retain immigrant and nonimmigrant workers, greater stability and job flexibility for such workers, and increased transparency and consistency in the application of agency policy related to affected classifications.

What explains this overt discrimination against Americans? This administration has done more to ensure the employment of more foreign workers in subordinated status at the expense of American workers than any in the history of the nation! They are undermining one of the few remaining avenues bright, young millennials have to advance to a good middle class income. The big question is motivation: why now in an election year? Why this overt preference for foreign workers? They won’t vote, so who can be held responsible – who are they doing this for? Answer: their political allies in Silicon Valley and in the university structure. Money and (over time) votes. Any executive who ran on this record, where the vast majority of jobs created since 2008 have gone to immigrants, nonimmigrants and illegal workers over native born, should be run out on a rail.
