ACTION ALERT – 40 million American workers have filed unemployment claims! We need a pause on foreign worker visas.
More than 42 million workers have lost jobs since the coronavirus crippled the economy. We need to suspend visa programs that bring in foreign workers.
Tell President Trump to halt new worker visas during this crisis!
Trump has issued an executive order suspending new green cards and is considering a new order to suspend “temporary” work visas. These include the H-1B high-skilled visas, the H-2B non-agricultural, low-skilled visas, and the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program that allows foreign graduates of American colleges to stay in the U.S and work for up to 3 years. These programs have been abused in the past, and there have been several stories about American workers forced to train their foreign replacements.
Republicans are pushing the administration from both sides. Four Republican Senators have sent a letter to the White House, urging Trump to immediately pause the issuance of these visas, but 41 House Republicans Senators have signed a letter urging that “OPT will remain fully intact.”
Please support unemployed Americans. Send a message to President Trump and urge him to suspend the H-1B, H-2B, and OPT visa programs during this crisis.
