Not Just Muslims:Trump Wants to Ban H-1B, Skilled Worker Green Cards. Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
As I have been warning in some of my previous posts during this election cycle, Donald Trump's proposal to ban Muslim immigrants solely on the basis of their religion is not just a danger to America's Muslim community and to the spirit, if not the letter, of our Constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion. It is also a danger to the foundations of our entire legal immigration system, including, in particular, H-1B visas and skilled worker green cards.

At the March 10 Republican debate in Miami, Trump made clear, as I have also been contending in my own comments that stirring up hate and poison against one particular group of immigrants, in this case, anyone who happens to belong to the Muslim religion, is like introducing a cancer which can easily spread to other areas of immigration which are not related to questions of religious belief or any alleged connection to terror.

This cancer of unreason and prejudice is now threatening to spread to H-1B visas and skilled worker green cards - that is if one listens to Donald Trump's latest comments at the debate.

First, this is what Trump had to say about the worlds 1.6 billion Muslims, only a small fraction of whom belong to or sympathize with terrorist organizations. The following statement was in answer to a question about whether Trump still thinks that most Muslims hate the US:

"I mean a lot of them. I mean a lot of them...I know there's something going on that maybe you don't know about, maybe a lot of people don't know about, but there's tremendous hatred and i will stick with exactly what I said."

To his credit, Senator Marco Rubio, in what was one of his finest moments of the entire campaign, if not his single finest moment, spoke up against Trump's comment, pointing out that America needs the support of Muslim allies around the world, and that many Muslim US soldiers have died in the service of their country. See:

At the same debate, Trump also called for ending H-1B visas, even though he has used them himself to sponsor foreign skilled workers in the past or is using them now.:

"I shouldn't be allowed to use [H-1B visas]'s very bad for workers...

Trump added:

"i'm a businessman and i have to do what I have to do, but it's very unfair for our workers and we should end it."

Then he went on to say that there should be a "pause" in green cards for foreign workers for a year or two (!), because "we're rushing into things."

Anyone who thinks that attempts to exploit racial or religious animosities against Muslim, Mexican, or other minority immigrants can continue without damaging or destroying other, seemingly unrelated aspects of our immigration system, if not the entire system itself, should read Trump's above comments again.
