350 million people in this country. There is no way we have to look outside the country for workers. The lie that we need tech workers is just that a lie. The biggest lie of all is americans don't want to do any work from manual labour to technology.

Powderhound • 3 years ago

Exactly!
That's just the narrative they decided on the "tagline" used to sell this bs to us without any pushback.
Anyone with any sense knows it's all about maximizing profit and hiding the fact that they're screwing the working class ....once again!

Jason Moyer • 3 years ago

Spot on. I'm a pipefitter-welder and immigration of all types has severly effected me. I noticed construction getting more and more effected starting in 06. Obama put the problem on steriods. 20 years in construction and never waited 4 weeks between jobs unless i wanted. These days its closer to 3 months. And that is not by choice. I support trump but not blindly like some people. Both of us will most likely be attacked by blind supporters though.

Lucky SF • 3 years ago

Come to San Francisco Bay area. Our construction workers can't sit still and are making over $200 k a year. We are lucky if we can find them!

Markus B • 3 years ago

The people I know in construction are getting paid significantly more and are very busy, especially since there are local shortages due to massive cleanup efforts in NC and other areas affected by natural disasters.

Jason Moyer • 3 years ago

Maybe I'm not being clear. I get paid well but i make the same pay i did 10 years ago. However my trade has very little to do with cleanup after natural disasters. Regardless of pay i have lost benifits more than anything. Paid holidays are gone, paid vacation is gone, paid sick time is gone, retirement plans are all but gone, most of lost out medical dental and vision insurance, yes work is out there for decent money but because companies get away with hiring illegal immigrants all the perks that came with hard work are gone. Prior to 2006 i made good money with good benifits. Those days are over for the time being until immigration is handled. I find so amusing that peopme always "talk" to people in construction and suddenly anything i sy isn't true. The fact I've spent 22 years in construction as a pipefitter-welder means nothing I guess. Only if i could talk to all these people non construction workers talk too lol

Adam Ruggiero • 3 years ago

There is a national construction worker shortage and construction wages have been rising rapidly as a result. These are facts. Perhaps you live in the wrong place.

Children are always innocent, do you not think you are a monster for ǩilling an innocent?

Children of invaders do not stay children, they become adults and
reproduce, creating more invaders to replace your people. They grow up and vote against your peoples own wishes, for the interests of their own people and identity. They grow up and take the potential homes of your own people for themselves, they occupy positions of power, remove wealth and destroy social trust. Any invader you ǩill, of any age, is one less enemy your children will
have to face.

Would you rather do the ǩilling, or leave it to your children? Your grandchildren?

I was one of Trump's biggest supporters, but he has done nothing about the criminal H-1B and L1 visa scams. I am a technology worker, so this hurts me directly..

Trump could have doen so many things by executive order. Examples are:
1. He could have decreased the annual inflow of H-1B visa
recipents
2. He could could have increased the visa fee to something
like $75,000.00 per visa
3.He could have increased scrutiny of H-1B visa holders
frrom India,to weed out scam degrees and fake
experience on resumes
4. He could have required all H-1B visa holders be paid a
minimum of $130,000.00 per year.

He could could have done all these things by means of executive order. Any one of the above mentioned, would have made jobs in Information Technology, available to US citizens.,

Michael Mes • 3 years ago

he did do something he got 75 h-2 visas .for mar-logo during is buy american hire american month. How many of those workers do you think will go back to there own country

Are you promoting violence against children? You got 10 up votes. I feel sad for you and people like you. You really need to get off the opioids!

GoodDog • 3 years ago

Note the question marks in Diane's reply; the standard false

qualifiers of a TDS sufferer claiming Trump voters disapprove of his job that Congress and the Media obstruct him from performing.
Dodging the flaming razor sharp hoops and traps set against him, he continues to correct the Democrat Party's actions that laid Barack Obama's 'New Normal' of lower expectations
and tech jobs for temporary H1B workers ( a Communist label), and "shovel ready" jobs for qualified American citizens.

I voted for Donald Trump, and used my shovel from the USPS, who replaced me, to dig a foxhole to hunker down in to fight the Liberal Lunatics !

You phony ant-Trump Trolls sure are bad at this. Soros­ should replace you with better, unskilled trolls.

WinstonSmith • 3 years ago

We all do... silicon valley is winning on importing leftist votes (the H1B never ever leave) and attacking Americans. Washington is awash in money from these people and they have Trump surrounded with those people.

Why focus on immigration and birth rates when climate change is
such a huge issue?

Because they are the same issue, the environment is being destroyed by over population, we Europeans are one of the groups that are not over populating the world. The invaders are the ones over populating the world. ǩill the invaders.

BlahBlahBlah098 • 3 years ago

How much does the DNC pay you? Do you know how to read or just copy and paste? This did not start under Trump, you should learn how government works for once. Do you idiots understand how long it has taken to put these garbage immigration laws on the books? It's gonna take a hell of a lot longer than 2 years to clean up 50+ years of trash.

I'm not happy with this h1b crap or the border. However i will vote for trump. A democrat will be far worse. 3rd party vote will elect a democrat, far worse then trump. Now if a true conservative were to primary trump, he would have my vote. The immigration issue and trump doing nothing about education are both huge problems. That dude attacked me too a few weeks back over my unhappiness about trump doing nothing but talk about immigration. I'm a welder/pipefitter and immigration, legal or illegal, has severly effected my trade too. But a democrat potus and congress will only make it worse. In short i am pi-ssed off on trumps lake of fight on immigration.

BlahBlahBlah098 • 3 years ago

Wasn't me buddy, unless you changed your name. Just curious who you think is going to be better? Unless you are wanting all the freebies being promised

Erick568 • 3 years ago

Not really. Trump has been very good on the economy but on immigration he gets his advice from Michelle and Barrak or Ivanka and Jared-both one and the same on that issue.

Jason Moyer • 3 years ago

Your statement is dead wrong. Unlike democrats we are free thinkers and aren't happy with everything trump is doing. The biggest difference between us and democrats we don't blindly support everything our canidate does. We actually disagree at times. Democrats supported their god king 100% even knowing his policy sucked, put the country in a nose dive, and hates white american and civil rights. Democrats are dumb enough to allow themselves to be led around the nose by a political party that lies to them. The only thing we hate being reminded of is the ignorance of democrats and dumb remarks like yours.

My Two Cents • 3 years ago

What this Trump supporter hates is whiners with no solutions, whiners who only complain when they are affected, and ignore all related issues.

I was about to say the same thing. Breitbart isn't the only place it happens, but yes it's a huge problem here. This is boomer land and boomers got us all here so they hate to hear it.

Jason Moyer • 3 years ago

They did because boomers overwhelmingly voted democrat. Democrat policy got us here. I'm very unhappy with trumps lack of fight regarding immigration. But a democrat will make that problem and make it far worse.

Arminius • 3 years ago

Jason Moyer • 3 years ago

I support trump but i agree with u on this. Not much happening on the border but talk. What happened to that DOD money he said was going to be used to start the wall? Then he has the nerve to ask for a increase in h1b visa? Nothing done about chain migration or visa lotto. He can do several things without congress. Yes i know courts and the republican party are not helping. But some stuff he can do. Like put somebody tuff in charge of DHS. Somebody like Kris Kobach. His white house advisors suck. Mainly Javanka. And education, why do we still have common core indoctrination going on? He has done nothing there. Education is where it all starts. However, he is still better than any democrat and a 3rd party canidate will cause a democrat to win. But if he were to be primaried by a real conservative my vote would not be for trump.

Gaijin Ronin • 3 years ago

Shits been happening well before President Trumps time. This is a business issue in general. I used to work for Cingular (Now At&t) and the company was shipping all jobs overseas it could (tech support, call centers). This was in the 2003-6.

Years later I worked for IBM as an SSR. Everything ran through India. HR, tech support, call centers, dispatch and parts ordering. I had a "great" conversation with dispatch one day trying to send me on a job on my day off. They called on my personal cell. I explained to them everyway I could that I was out of town with the family. No comprehension from "Julie" as her English was rudimentary at best. Oh and HR, total nightmare of sending digital documents back and forth.

Jason Moyer • 3 years ago

That is not true, trump promised a increase and has done little but talk about illegal immigration. And yes i support trump. Just not blindly. Thats what democrats do. Trump is not doing a good job with immigration. And if he is blindly supported nothing will change. Then he loses votes and a democrat wins. That will make the situation worse. His guarenteed way to win 2020? Start building a real wall, cut the h1b, kill chain immigration and the visa lotto, and go to a merit based system with american sponsors. Anything less and he conned his supporters.

Lucky SF • 3 years ago

Bull! Trump has done a lot to fix this. I have to credit him for a lot of regulation to stop lower wage H1B flow. But unfortunately no one understands that even Indian IT companies are moving away from old model. The new model is simple. Hire one or two leads in American and create a whole team in India. Just like manufacturing. Design here and manufacture in China. No one can stop that. Only way out is to keep learning and improving your skill set to beat the competition (other workers). What do they say in America....pigs get slaughtered???

Longiron • 3 years ago

Yes he has on illegal alien invasions and draining of the swamp. Other than those lies best POTUS ever

Markus B • 3 years ago

Bull! Trump hasn't "stabbed you in the back", he's severely curtailed the H1B program, and that's exactly what he should have done. You want to see better policies? Stop electing RINO's and other assorted corporate whores.
