#Work #Visa/#EAD (F1 #OPT/CPT, #H1B, #H4EAD, #J1, #L1B, etc) & declining #American #LaborParticipationRate (LBR; peaked 1999) thread @SenSanders.

Seems obvious there is #NoLaborShortage @SenToomey @SenBobCasey @RepMeuser. Image
1. #H1B enacted 1990, slight dip in #LaborParticipationRate; 1998's ACIWA raises #H1Bvisas to 115,000 - LBR dips again;
2001 AC21 Act raises #H1Bvisa limit to 195,000 - LBR continues dropping @USCongress @BizRoundtable @USDOL. Image
2. 2001 AC21 Act also adds #H1B Cap Exempt Category for non-profit #Education/#Research organizations, further fueling #LaborParticipationRate drop (& growing #GreenCardBacklog) @HouseDemocrats @HouseGOP @SenateDems @SenateGOP.… Image

#AmericanWorkers & #UnMatchedMD #MedicalGrads displaced by F1 #OPT/CPT #H1B, #H4EAD, #J1, #L1B, et al need #BernieSandersForLabor.

Bernie Sanders confirms interest in becoming Biden's Labor secretary…
1. #BernieSandersForLabor:
Would @SenSanders continue his #H1B opposition as Secretary Of Labor? Or will he conform to @JoeBiden/@KamalaHarris' anti-#AmericanWorkers/pro-#H1Bvisa platform?…
2. #BernieSandersForLabor:
2015: @SenSanders 'wants to reform the #H1B program, in part, by "substantially" raising prevailing wages.'

Does @BernieSanders now support current @USDOL/@DHSgov #H1Bvisa #wages Interim Final Rule?…

Up until 9 months ago (green card 🙏), I was on an F1 visa for 13 years. This last measure is unbelievably cruel but perhaps you don't realize how many other hurdles international students face. This is what it was like for me 👇 #StudentBan #InternationalStudents 1/n
Step 1: Apply to college, get accepted. That's where it ends for US citizens & permanent residents. For undergrads and MS students, you first have to show the school that you already have the $$ to pay for tuition AND everything else for yr 1 - they issue an I-20 #StudentBan 2/n
You then take that I-20 to apply for a #F1visa and it's up to the consul to decide whether your family has enough $$ to pay for your education. The consul that reviewed my visa app for undergrad almost denied me mine. I was almost in tears during that entire appt #StudentBan 3/n

1/ A few quick notes on Trump's desperate move today to suspend most non-immigrant labor visas, starting with this:

It's a proclamation, not an executive order.

Is there a difference? Not really! Does it matter? No. Trump sure does love his proclamations though!
2/ First, the suspension of new immigrant visas (the basis for greencards) from April is extended, bc nothing says "we love immigrants, so long as they do it the right way!" like slamming the door on the "right way" for people who have already been waiting for months, if not yrs
3/ This thing is in effect until the end of 2020, at which point the administration is delusionally "assuming the conclusion of the economic contraction" even as we're facing down the barrel of a second wave, record mass unemployment, and an economy in freefall

Next we go down to the very south of the geographic area that we cover to #SanDiego where one of our partner organizations, @IrishOutreachSD, celebrated its 20th birthday last week! That’s me, Bernadette Cashman (founder), Amb @DanMulhall & Exec Dir Stephen Aherne!
#SanDiego has a vibrant & diverse Irish community including four @GAA_USA clubs who joined with us last year to send off the players of @USAWomenEagles before they went to Ireland for the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup! San Diego also hosts the annual West Coast Sevens competition.
#SanDiego is also home to one of the largest St Patrick’s Day parades west of the Rockys with over 30k people lining the streets. The parade is organised by the Irish Congress of #SoCal with support from the Friendly Sons, the House of Ireland & all the Irish organisations in SD
