While the lefty media wasn’t looking, President Trump did something that’s pretty awesome for American workers! He suspended expedited H1-B visas for foreign workers.
American workers have been playing second fiddle to foreign workers for way too long. Many American workers have had to even train their replacements!

WASHINGTON DC – Foreigners aiming for temporary jobs at high-tech U.S. companies will undergo a longer visa approval process after the Trump administration announced it will temporarily suspend expedited applications for H-1B visas.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said on Friday that starting April 3 it will suspend “premium processing” for up to six months. Under this expedited procedure, applicants can be eligible for visa approvals within 15 days, instead of a regular review period that can last for up to a few months.
