‘Long Overdue’: Trump Administration Closes H-1B Loopholes To Incentivize Hiring American Workers

Looks like a lot of foreign workers will quit stealing AMERICAN jobs!!!



  • The Trump administration announced rule changes Tuesday intended to encourage American companies who petition for workers under the H-1B visa program to look for American workers first.
  • The Departments of Homeland Security and Labor announced rule changes that range from tightening broad language closing loopholes to adding wage protections for American workers.
  • “It is never acceptable for the employment of foreign labor to erode the economic security of American workers and their families,” Department of Labor Deputy Secretary Patrick Pizzella said.
The federal government announced changes Tuesday to the H-1B visa program that are aimed at incentivizing American companies to hire American workers before foreign workers.

The rule change is the latest effort from the Trump administration to protect American workers, according to press releases from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Labor (DOL). More than 500,000 H-1B visa recipients have been used to displace American workers reducing wages in several industries, according to the DHS release.

“Companies that have used the H-1B program have been incentivized to avoid hiring Americans or even lay off their own higher-paid and better-qualified American workers so that they can replace them with cheaper foreign labor,” Acting DHS Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said during a Tuesday conference call, which the Daily Caller News Foundation attended.

He continued: “That abuse will end with this new rule.”
