Donald Trump Signs Executive Order Curbing H-1B Outsourcing

The man seen on Los Angeles police body camera video being struck in the head by a sponge grenade as officers closed in on protesters in the Fairfax district earlier this year says he was left with debilitating injuries after striving to deescalate the situation.

CJ Montano, 24, is seen holding his arms above his head as the projectile hit his forehead, causing him to crumple to the ground, in the footage released Friday by the L.A. Police Department.

Apart from exposing once again the obtuseness, the moral bankruptcy, and the almost inexpressible hatred of the president that possesses the Democratic congressional leadership, Attorney General William Barr’s appearance at the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday clarified in a few minutes why the national interest requires the reelection of the administration.

From the refusal to allow the attorney general to answer the questions which the Democratic propaganda machine had assured the country would be unanswerable, to the almost unimaginable discourtesy of the bumbling and nasty committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.)—who declined even to agree to the attorney general’s request for a five-minute break—to the concise dismissals Barr was able to make when allocated time by Republican congressmen to answer the belligerent allegations of their Democratic colleagues; all of it demonstrated the extent to which this election campaign has become an exercise in make-believe.

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A man on the sidewalk dressed as a wizard waves customers inside Wray’s Knick Knack Shack in Oklahoma City.

But so far, customers are few. The business shuttered just two weeks after it opened due to the pandemic. Thousands of antiques, collectibles, furniture, and more fill the 5,000-square-foot space, waiting to be sold.

“Yesterday, I only made 25 cents for all day. One little item and it’s just killing me. My electric bills are running me over $500 a month,” owner Chuck Wray said.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday which curbs the H-1B outsourcing of jobs at government agencies, including the government-controlled Tennessee Valley Authority.

“We believe jobs must be offered to American workers first,” Trump told attendees at a signing event in the White House.

Staffing companies have used the H-1B program to fill roughly 18,000 jobs in government agencies with foreign contract-workers.

A White House statement said:

President Trump is signing an Executive Order to create a policy where Federal agencies will focus on United States labor in lucrative Federal contracts.

It would be unfair for Federal employers to replace perfectly qualified Americans with workers from other countries.

The Executive Order will require all Federal agencies to complete an internal audit and assess whether they are in compliance with the requirement that only United States citizens and nationals are appointed to the competitive service.

The Department of Labor will also finalize guidance to prevent H-1B employers from moving H-1B workers to other employers’ job sites to displace American workers.

“Outsourcing hundreds of workers is especially detrimental in the middle of a pandemic, which has already cost millions of Americans their jobs,” the statement said. “President Trump’s actions will help combat employers’ misuse of H-1B visas, which were never intended to replace qualified American workers with low-cost foreign labor.”
