Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

President Donald Trump's administration has signaled that it has no immediate plans to change the H-1B program. Critics are roiled. They wanted Trump to act before April 1, the day the U.S. accepts visa applications for the new year. But no one knows for sure. New rumors circulate that Trump will act, maybe next week, but the White House won't say. The IEEE-USA said Friday that Trump's inaction on the H-1B visa "will cost American jobs." The group now believes that action before April is unlikely, and that may be because of something Sean Spicer, the press secretary, said this week. ... Trump repeatedly called for reform during his campaign and after, the IEEE-USA points out. "By Trump not yet keeping his promise, American tech workers will continue to lose their jobs and their ability to take care of their families," said IEEE-USA president Karen Pedersen, in a statement. "This is in direct contrast to what he told us all last year."

@#5 ... Stupid Republican Voters. ...

If by that you mean those who voted for Pres Trump, well...

www.nationalreview.com

...Few have focused on what this means: Trump -- and the Republican party -- owe the presidency to millions of whites who have largely voted Democratic for years....

I always laugh when guys like Boaz cheer on firing government workers since the government highly prioritizes hiring veterans who may not have such good jobs in the private sector.

IT services?!? Everybody knows that IT is just a fad. Now, coal mining, steel and automobile manufacturing are jobs with a future--we want more of those jobs!

I get why you laugh but I am usually saddened by it. Most of those Vets aren't anything like Boaz, most are just good people wanting decent jobs.

Yer joking,right. Trump has plans?

It is to laugh.

It's OK to have plans if they're back by a sound mind and good judgment.

Trump has neither.
