Donald trump under prodding by his trusty assistant Stephen Miller is working to scare and stop anyone wishing to come to this country….(And has been here legally also)
Millers’s effort seem to be from a person who is physically afraid of immigrants and refugees….
Media stories report that even family members of the guy do NOT support his efforts, but Donald Trump does…
Republicans have turned a deaf ear and blinders to the effort….
Only Federal judges have stepped in to stop some of the efforts by the admin led by Atty Gen Jeff Sessions and others…
We now have murmures from the American business sector that has relied on the labor from immigrants that they are beginning to have problems getting help for jobs that Americans will NOT work …
This could lead to economic issue for the American consumer and economy….
Yet Trump still has Miller forging ahead with legal and illegal efforts to stop almost ANY immigration into this country…
They are now reaching to threaten legal immigrants from continuing to work here by slowing their routine processing so they can make them in violation of the law so they can possibly be deported….
The Trump administration is using the country’s vast and nearly opaque immigration bureaucracy to constrict the flow of foreign workers into the United States by throwing up new roadblocks to limit legal arrivals.
The government is denying more work visas, asking applicants to provide additional information and delaying approvals more frequently than just a year earlier. Hospitals, hotels, technology companies and other businesses say they are now struggling to fill jobs with the foreign workers they need.
With foreign hires missing, the employees who remain are being forced to pick up the slack. Seasonal industries like hotels and landscaping are having to turn down customers or provide fewer services. Corporate executives worry about the long-term impact of losing talented engineers and programmers to countries like Canada that are laying out the welcome mat for skilled foreigners.
At Northwell Health’s pathology lab on Long Island, a new doctor’s cubicle stands empty, her computer and microscope untouched. Other residents started on July 1, but she is stuck in India’s Punjab State, held up by unexplained delays in her visa.
“There have been delays in processing that we have not felt before,” said Dr. Andrew C. Yacht, chief academic officer at Northwell, which includes Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan and North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y.
In April 2017, President Trump signed a “Buy American and Hire American” executive order, directing government officials to “rigorously enforce” immigration laws. The order did not get the kind of attention that followed the administration’s decision to separate families at the Mexican border this summer.
A few months later, the president endorsed legislation that would cut legal immigration by half. The bill was introduced by two Republican senators, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia. But Republican leaders in Congress have not advanced it.
Some lawmakers say Mr. Trump is using administrative means to reshape immigration policy because those changes have stalled on Capitol Hill.
“If they want to have a proposal on immigration, they should send it to Congress,” said Representative Ro Khanna, a Democrat whose district includes parts of Silicon Valley. “The administration should engage in that conversation. To unilaterally and without any accountability change what Congress has authorized is not democratic.”….
