H1B Visas.

60 Minutes had a segment on about how younger cheaper workers from mostly India are taking high level American worker jobs in IT and other such professions, some government institutions are among employers outsourcing jobs to save money (so they claim). The result is that older, highly skilled American workers are unemployed with little hope of finding comparable work.

Trump (the shameless one) made a major issue of this and is not dragging his foot on renewing the H1B Visa program. I hate that Trump has such a powerful issue to play with and wish that Democrats would become fierce opponents of the program if qualified, unemployed American workers are given serious interviews and hired. Trump hires foreign workers in the place of Americans, but it is clear that won't stop him from using the program to his political advantage.


Good for Bernie to call Trump a liar, because that is what Trump is. nt

Has anyone heard any public statement from Jill Stein or Johnson.

On Trump's tax plan that gives all to the rich?
On Trump's defense buildup plan?
On Trump's gutting of environmental protections?
On Trump's attack on immigrants?
On Trumps green lighting the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines?

Stein made a big deal about protesting the DA pipeline near the end of the election. Where was she last month when police forced protesters off the land they occupied?

I challenge Stein's supporters here (if they have the principles to identify themselves) to explain her silence. Same with Johnson supporters.

Appeals Court upholds suspension of the immigrant ban. nt
