Schlafly: Trump's "Buy American, Hire American"
Even as fewer applicants line up for high-skilled immigration visas, President Donald Trump will sign an executive order on Tuesday directing a review of the program.
"We are sending a powerful signal to the word we are going to defend our workers, protect our jobs and finally put America first", Trump said just before signing the order on a visit to a Wisconsin manufacturing plant.
In the document, known to the White House as the "Buy American and Hire American" order, Trump also seeks changes in government procurement that would boost purchases of American products in federal contracts, with one aim being to help U.S. steelmakers.
Trump issued the 'Buy American, Hire American' executive order on Tuesday in Wisconsin, stating that the order will tighten guest worker visas like H1-B, and would also require American agencies to purchase more products and services from USA companies and workers.
Tuesday's order also seeks to strengthen requirements that American-made products be used in certain federal construction projects, as well as in various grant-funded transportation projects. "Employers want aliens with H-1B visas not only because they can pay them less than US technicians, but especially because the H-1B visas lock them into sticking with the sponsoring employer and prevent them from job-hopping for better pay as Americans do" she observed in 2001.
About 6 percent of the visas now go to the Labor Department's top skill level, while 8 in 10 workers using the visa are paid less than the median wage for their fields, the White House said in a fact sheet distributed to reporters. The commerce secretary is to review how to close loopholes in existing rules and provide recommendations to the president within 220 days.
The order also asks federal agencies to look at how to get rid of loopholes in the government procurement process.

The number of applications coming in has gone down this year, Repko says, but is still higher than the 85,000 cap on how many visas are issued.
A majority of them work in the tech sector - some for US firms, others for Indian outsourcing companies such as Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys, who provide services for huge swathes of corporate America. Many Trump-branded products are manufactured overseas, mostly in China.
The official later clarified that it was the program rules that made it easy for misuse. His businesses also have hired foreign workers, including at his Palm Beach, Fla., club.
During his tour, Trump was shown metal boxes where cremated ashes are deposited.
