Trump Will Extend Visa, Migration Curbs: Stephen Miller

Vastavam web: Stephen Miller, a top aide to President Donald Trump, is predicting a second Trump administration will continue its curbs on white-collar visa workers and on blue-collar asylum seekers. This summer, Trump blocked the arrival of more cheap-labor H-1B and J-1 visa workers, so creating more jobs and wages for Americans. Business and progressive groups are suing to remove the block. The block is set to expire on January 1 but can be extended.

Miller also said the administration would like to transport asylum-seeking migrants to the many safe countries they transit as they travel from South America, India, or Africa to the U.S.-Mexico border. “The president would like to expand that to include the rest of the world,” Miller said. “And so if you create safe third partners in other continents and other countries and regions, then you have the ability to share the burden of asylum-seekers on a global basis.”

The U.S. will also improve the interview process to identify and exclude potential threats, Miller suggested. Under Trump, Americans have been able to win higher wages and get more jobs because the government is delivering fewer migrants and asylum seekers to U.S. employers, he said.
