Oops! There Goes Another Campaign Promise. President Trump Reverses his ‘Hire American’ Policy By Inviting More Foreign Workers

Last week, President Trump declared during his State of the Union speech that “I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.” The press focused on the “come in legally” part and ignored the “largest numbers ever” part. Critics say this is the abandonment of his Hire-American campaign promise. They say that Mr Trump hopes to appease big-business and high-tech employers who want to import cheap “visa workers” instead of hiring Americans at market rates. Trump now says the US needs more people to immigrate because unemployment is so low. [Strange! We thought low unemployment is good for American workers.] The flood of one-million legal immigrants per year plus visa workers plus illegal immigrants, is good for Wall Street profits. Every $1 saved in salaries creates roughly $15 in extra stock-market value. [Could that be the amount deducted from the standard of living of American workers?] -GEG

President Donald Trump suggested that he is ready to ditch his Inauguration Day promise of a “Hire American” economic policy — even though thousands of auto workers are being laid off, millions of Americans do not have jobs, and many millions of Americans cannot get better-paying jobs.

The huge policy shift in favor of employers and investors is emerging after Congress blocked his border wall and his border security reforms, and after the GOP-led Congress passed Trump’s tax cut.

“It is fair to say that the President is abandoning his Hire American policy,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Ten Days at Jekyll Island, a novel by Patrea Patrick, tells the true story of a secret meeting held in November of 1910 on a privately owned resort island, the outcome of which drastically changed the world. It was at this meeting that a banking cartel was forged; a cartel that, three years later, would be issued a government charter to do business as The United States Federal Reserve System. You will discover why secrecy was essential. Based on historical documentation from The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. (More)

Extremely disappointed in this ignorant approach to unemployment battles. By isolating this one piece of the bigger puzzle you attack the President as being treacherous. Where is your damn coverage of the trade war against Chinese steele being dumped on the market? That unfortunately did not exempt the Canadians from the salvo of Trump’s Executive order, and the idiot Trudeau is more interested in his PC gender junk than in doing the work to get Canada an exemption. The Rebel is nearly the only journalist group awake.. see this video by Ezra Levant… https://www.therebel.media/trudeau-trump-canada-infrastructure-trade-war-politics-news-ezra-levant-rebel-media

Pillow talk during the campaign – they all do it… His bosses won’t allow this to be undone – and Mr. T knew that from the start.. The elites have their AGENDA, and that’s what all in DC must follow…
