Once there is real H1-B and L-1 visa reform, it will create jobs for Americans

Y'all don't know what you're getting yourselves into.

Trump isn't getting rid of the EPA. Your premise is wrong.

Take a deep breath and walk towards the light...

He wants to fire the employees who enforce the environmental rules preventing pollution. Go a few pages back to the link I posted.

No.
The EPA was commissioned to enforce laws that congress passed. It did that and would continue to do that.

But it overextended itself when it began to supplement laws with its own rules, which are not subject to congress's approval.

Congress saved lives, not EPA.

Do you know how our government and its agencies work?

What Trump needs to o is stop temporarily the H1B/L /work permits and evaluate the American workforce and what we have.


Like I said before in academia those colleges are hiring foreigners while ignoring americans who can fill these positions. We have thousands of kids coming out of colleges with no jobs and meanwhile companies and colleges are abusing the H1B visas.


Unless it is absolutely necessary (i.e prove that you cannot find an American worker), no permit should be issued.


the current h1b/L etc should be made non-renewable until americans have taken their share.


Enough catering for foreigners. Your work visa is expiring, then you better start the process of leaving.
This abuse must stop.

Hyperbole much?


What does clean water have to do with tiny spiders blocking $15 Million construction projects? What does clean air have to do with denying California farmers irrigation water because of a little fish the EPA wants to protect?


Ending the overbearing pointless regulatory nightmare of the EPA will not end the need for clean water, clean air and ensuring the health and safety of the American workforce.

Were you able to type that with a straight face?

You're confusing the Endangered Species Act which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service enforces with the Clean Water Act which the EPA enforces.
