Why do I say we are losing jobs when we import non-immigrant guest workers and send jobs to other countries via free trade agreements?

Lets make it easy to understand by using round numbers.

Assume we have 1 million jobs in America and we have 1 million working age (not students, disabled, or retired) American citizens.

Now lets send 100,000 jobs to china and india.

This means that we now have 900,000 jobs available in America and in addition to our students, disabled, and retired citizens we now have 100,000 unemployed citizens.

Now lets import 100,000 people using non-immigrant guest worker visas.

We now have 1 million working, and we have 100,000 unemployed American citizens in addition to our students, disabled, and retired citizens.

Now lets import 100,000 more from China and India.

We now have 1 million working and we have 200,000 unemployed American citizens in addition to our students, disabled, and retired citizens.

Bottom line, you cannot create jobs by decreasing jobs.

Even more propaganda about the OPT visas and how America is losing by not legalizing all of them.

America is a country made up of American citizens.

We lose when we force our own citizens out of the job market because we are not creating enough jobs because we are sending them to other countries which decreases the jobs available in America and because we are importing non-immigrant guest workers and students which also decreases the amount of jobs available for American citizens in America.


For years, these students have been the backbone of U.S. leadership in STEM fields, including in the research and development of AI. They pursue STEM degrees at unusually high rates and help universities maintain their academic programs’ size and quality. In fact, without international students, many universities wouldn’t have financially viablegraduate programs in crucial fields related to AI. This includes programs such as computer science and statistics, where, in 2015, international students made up 79 percent and 69 percent of full-time enrollment, respectively. Even at the best schools, international enrollment far surpasses domestic interest. At Carnegie Mellon University, which has the nation’s highest ranked AI program, 78 percent of graduate computer science students were international.

Supreme Court Overturns 9th Circuit Ruling on Mandatory Detention of Alien Criminals

Patrick McHugh March 21, 2019 – … Read moreSupreme Court Overturns 9th Circuit Ruling on Mandatory Detention of Alien Criminals

This despite the fact that a recent National Foundation for American Policy study, conducted by economist Madeline Zavodny, concluded that there’s “no evidence that foreign students participating in the OPT program reduce job opportunities for U.S. workers.

Perhaps Madeline Zavodny should talk to American Tech Workers like myself who have been forced out of the tech industry?


The administration’s regulatory agenda also includes planes to eliminate or restrict international students’ ability to work after graduation on Optional Practical Training (OPT) in a science, technology, engineering or math field. This despite the fact that a recent National Foundation for American Policy study, conducted by economist Madeline Zavodny, concluded that there’s “no evidence that foreign students participating in the OPT program reduce job opportunities for U.S. workers….The OPT program is an important way for the U.S. to attract and retain foreign talent.”
In addition, USCIS has implausibly decided that IT services are not important to the country or the competitiveness of its companies. The agency has established far tougher adjudication standards for IT services companies, resulting in denials of 34 to 80 percent of H-1B petitions for new (initial) employment for several well-known companies that perform technical work for American businesses. Peter Bendor-Samuel, founder and CEO of Everest Group, says, “Almost every major U.S. firm is building some form of digital platform so it can enhance its competitive position….The current skill shortages are going to grow as the demand for digital and IT skills explodes. If this administration wanted to harm U.S. competitiveness, then restricting access to this vital labor would be an excellent approach.”

LETTING THE VOICES OF VISA HOLDERS BE HEARD

Why is it that NBC News will not let the voices of Americans displaced by non-immigrant guest workers be heard?


But the reality of life on a spousal visa turned out to be very different. Damani soon found that there were few employers willing to sponsor her for the proper work authorization. As she continued to fruitlessly look for work, she found herself struggling with depression and feelings of social isolation.

Why won’t Senators Kamala Harris from California and Kirsten Gillibrand from New York stand up for Displaced American Citizens?


The move will have a major impact on Indian women as they are a major beneficiary of the Obama-era rule.

“Rescinding the H-4 rule will result in significant personal hardship to women who will be forced to abandon their professional careers,” the two senators wrote in their letter.

“Preventing women from engaging in employment can lead to isolation, depression, anxiety, feelings of guilt, and a loss of self-worth. Revoking a wife’s ability to work leaves her and her children entirely dependent on her spouse. Increased isolation — coupled with complete financial dependence — can make leaving an abusive relationship dangerous and, in some cases, impossible,” they wrote.

Asserting that independence and equal opportunity are fundamental American values, they said an action to deprive spousal H-4 visa holders the ability to continue to pursue their professional careers is antithetical to principles this country is built on.

“We urge you to consider the economic, psychological, and personal harms that rescinding the H-4 rule will cause to more than 100,000 professional women, their families, and their American communities,” they said.

This is the sound made by the February jobs report—almost a crash landing.


Hmm. Trump is half right. We do have the strongest economy in the world. But native-born Americans are not the beneficiaries—not in February anyway.
The Household Survey is our sole source of job data by immigration status of workers. The February survey found 255,000 jobs were created, 12.8-times the anemic job growth reported in the Payroll Survey. Our analysis of the February survey finds that immigrants gained jobs bigtime, while Native-born Americans lost them.
In February:
Immigrant employment rose by 269,000—up 1.0%
Native-Born American employment fell 14,000—down by 0.01%
The immigrant employment index, set at 100.0 in January 2009, rose to 129.1 from 127.9 in January.
The Native-Born American employment index fell to 107.0 from 107.4 in January.
The New VDARE American Worker Displacement Index (NVDAWDI), our name for the ratio of immigrant to native-born employment growth indexes, rose to 120.7 in December – the second highest displacement level of the 122 months since January 2009. The all-time displacement high, 123.0, was set in April 2018 – an anomalous reading, we believe. (See the spike in the NEW VDAWDI graphic below.)
Native-born American workers lost ground to their foreign-born competitors throughout the Obama years;
 this trend accelerated significantly in the months leading up to the 2016 election. More than half way through his first term, President Trump is still very far from breaking this trend:
