Donald Trump has been praised for following through on promises he made to voters on the campaign trail, but the president has yet to act on two programs he vowed to end within days of being sworn into office: DACA and the H-1B visa program.
On the trail, Donald Trump promised to “immediately terminate” Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children from deportation.
“We will immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties, in which he defied federal law and the constitution to give amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal immigrants,” Trump said during a speech in Phoenix in August.
Then he pledged to kill the H-1B visa program with “no exceptions” because, he believes, it allows companies to import foreign workers and replace American workers for a lower cost.
“I will end forever the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program, and institute an absolute requirement to hire American workers first for every visa and immigration program,” Trump said on his own website last March. “No exceptions.”Read the rest of the story HERE and follow the link below to a related story:
