Former President Barack Obama betrayed American workers with his pro-immigrant policies.
Despite being one of Trump’s top priorities, Americans are still losing jobs because of Obama-era backdoor policies.
Months out of office, Obama is still undermining the American people.
The H-1B visa allows hundreds of thousands of immigrants to work and live in the United States for six years.
But thanks to Obama’s lax immigration stance, many stayed, and are still taking American jobs.
Worst yet, many Americans are coerced into training their replacements, and then left on their own to find another job.
Many are also threatened to stay quiet about the matter, or else lose their severance pay.
Breitbart News reports:
While Americans who have lost their jobs to outsourcing are willing to speak up, they remain fearfully hushed about the issue, making sure their names and former employers are not released.
Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa and are allowed to stay for up to six years. That number has ballooned to potentially hundreds of thousands each year, as universities and non-profits are exempt from the cap. With more entering the U.S. through the visa, Americans are often replaced and forced to train their foreign replacements.
As Breitbart Texas spoke to a number of workers in front of the White House, a reoccurring factor was that Americans would only speak anonymously.
“I have to remain anonymous,” one told Breitbart Texas. “It’s in my severance package.”
He had to move from Atlanta to Washington, D.C. just to find a job after he had been outsourced by Infosys, India’s top consulting firm.
“This is also a national security threat because foreigners are dominating an entire American industry, the worker said.
American workers are being overrun by cheaper foreign labor.
One source even claimed that if the immigrant worker could not do their job, it was the fault of the trainer.
That same source lost her job no less than three times to outsourced labor, much like her husband.
She also was on-call for the training at all hours of the night.
One woman, a legal immigrant who was reluctant to speak to Breitbart Texas, said she was outsourced and laid-off three times, saying her husband’s job was also outsourced.
The woman said she lives in an upper-class neighborhood, but has eight to 10 foreign nationals on H-1B visas living across from her in a small apartment.
“Personally, I’m tired,” the woman said with frustration. “I’m losing my pension, my 401K. I was forced to do my engineering job and train my replacement.”
“I’m working 24/7,” she said.
The anonymous source also claimed she supported President Trump during the 2016 election, but would have lost her job had anyone found out at the company.
Another anonymous source – formerly a Democrat – also voted for Trump, in the hopes of change.
Breitbart News reports:
“I was a Democrat until I got screwed over.”
A woman, formerly a Democrat, said her vote for Trump was specifically because he opposed the abuse of American workers like her because of the H-1B visa.
“I voted for Trump,” the woman said. “I never thought in all my years that it would happen.”
American workers are struggling, thanks to Obama and his introduction of the loopholes to the H-1B visa, like increasing the cap on immigrants allowed in the country, as well as allowing universities and nonprofits to also ignore the cap.
Obama hated the idea of a working America, and abused his power to undermine blue-collar workers.
