When considering my choice for president, I think it is imperative to look at the stance the candidate takes on economics. Our President has been cited as saying that economic security is national security. A proclamation made on October 3rd of this month titled: “Proclamation on Made in America Day and Made in America Week”, 2020 has this to say:
The “Made in America” stamp stands for excellence in craftsmanship. It is a testament to the expertise of our millions of inventors, craftsmen, tradesmen, and laborers who make up the most skilled, innovative, and dedicated workforce in the world.
On Made in America Day, and throughout Made in America Week, we commend these hardworking men and women and recommit ourselves to strengthening American manufacturing as we rebuild the greatest economy in our Nation’s history for a second time.
For too long, politicians failed to recognize the critical importance of using American labor to make American goods, so that the profits and jobs stay here at home. They enabled American companies to ship their jobs overseas and sat by while foreign companies ripped off our products.
They fostered in our country a dangerous reliance on foreign countries while neglecting American workers and American families. These days are over. Under my Administration, these forgotten men and women are forgotten no longer. I pledged to always put American workers first, and as President, I have delivered on that promise, vigorously implementing trade and manufacturing policies that encourage the building, creating, and growing of more products right here at home.
As a result, we are creating jobs, improving lives, and strengthening our families, our neighbors, and our Nation.
What are those five dimensions that have helped make “Made in the USA” a reality that the Press Secretary referenced? They are:
1. Buy American Government Procurement.
2. Hire American initiatives.
3. Trade negotiations and tariffs.
4. The defense budget and foreign military sales; and
5. Support for America’s maritime industry
By focusing on “Made in the USA” across these five dimensions, the result has been a long-overdue renaissance in American manufacturing and a significant strengthening of America’s defense industrial base. As President Trump has often said, “Economic security is indeed national security.”
We learned this week; President Trump is taking action to tighten foreign worker Visa requirements and protect American workers.
On Tuesday, October 6th, the Trump Administration announced two Interim Final Rules to dramatically improve the H-1B work visa program.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is tightening standards to require that foreign workers show specialized merit to establish their eligibility.
DHS is also taking action to rein in “shadow,” third-party employers who use the H-1B program to displace American workers and to reduce the validity period for H-1Bs used by these “shadow”  employers, which will ensure more frequent vetting for compliance with H-1B program requirements.
The intent of the H-1B provisions is to help employers who cannot otherwise obtain needed business skills and abilities from the U.S. workforce by authorizing the temporary employment of qualified individuals who are not otherwise authorized to work in the United States. 
DHS is codifying existing authorities to conduct workforce inspections and clarifying that failure to fully cooperate with inspections may result in the denial or revocation of employer H-1B petitions.
The Department of Labor is publishing a rule to appropriately identify the wage levels for H-1Bs and other foreign labor programs, which will improve the quality of H-1B workers and better reflect wages paid to similarly employed workers in the United States.
The rule will limit an employer’s ability to replace workers with cheap foreign labor and help ensure wages are not suppressed by the presence of low-cost foreign workers.
PUTTING AMERICAN WORKERS FIRST: President Trump is committed to making sure American workers are not disadvantaged by foreign labor.
President Trump is improving America’s work visa programs to prioritize the highest-skilled workers and protect American jobs and wages.
President Trump knows that H-1B visas should only be reserved for specialized talent that helps support a strong economy.
For too long, this program has been misused as an inexpensive labor program, replacing American jobs in the process.
These critical reforms will improve the quality of the H-1B program without changing the annual statutory cap for H-1B visas.
The Trump Administration is closing loopholes that have allowed employers in the United States to replace American workers with low-cost foreign labor.
TAKING COMMONSENSE ACTION: President Trump continues to stand up for our Nation’s workers by taking action to preserve jobs for American citizens.
Earlier this year, President Trump signed an Executive Order to prevent Federal dollars from being used to displace Americans with foreign workers or offshore labor.
To aid our Nation’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, the President placed a temporary pause on multiple categories of aliens from coming into the country for work.
The Trump Administration issued regulations that will, once in effect, remove the incentive to apply for asylum for the purpose of obtaining authorization to work in the United States.
President Trump has worked tirelessly to restore American supply chains, bring investments home from overseas, and implement policies that promote buying and hiring American.  Well, Joe Biden thinks differently. This is what he thinks:
