GOP Sen. Kevin Cramer is leading a drive to reward 300,000 Indian visa workers for taking college graduate jobs from at least 200,000 young middle aged or older American graduates. Via Twitter, the North Dakota Senator is pushing the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” which was also championed by former GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder until he lost his 2018 election.The legislation “is about exactly that: fairness,” Cramer tweeted. “The long wait for these green cards is a disservice to legal immigrants and to the potential of the American economy. Let’s get this passed.” But Cramer’s bill does not offer fairness or safeguards to the many Americans who are losing careers or starter jobs to the imported army of roughly 500,000 Indian workers and recruiters, said Dawn Collins, a former vice-president at J.P. Morgan Chase bank. Casey and other American professionals were forced out of their software jobs in 2016 to make … [Read more...] about GOP Senators Push Green Card Rewards for Indian Visa Workers Who Take College Jobs in U.S.

Pompeo Is Tested by North Korea, Iran and U.S. Allies Supported by ByDavid E. Sanger and Edward Wong Feb. 24, 2019 WARSAW — In the eyes of Mike Pompeo, the day was shaping up to be one of his most commanding displays of diplomacy since becoming secretary of state. Months of planning had finally yielded a meeting among reluctant European officials, Arab leaders and the Israeli prime minister to strategize over confronting Iran. Then, in a lunchtime speech, Vice President Mike Pence shattered the fragile unity. Addressing the officials as they met this month in Warsaw, Mr. Pence denounced the United States’ closest allies — Britain, France and Germany — for coddling “Iran’s murderous revolutionary regime.” He demanded … [Read more...] about Defender of World Order or Trump Mouthpiece?

"The United States is asking Britain, France, Germany and other European allies to take back over 800 ISIS fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial," Trump said on Twitter. "The caliphate is ready to fall," he added. After years of global effort to combat the group, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic forces have cornered remaining militants in a village near the Iraqi border, under fire from all sides. The final assault has been prolonged because ISIS fighters have been using civilians as human shields, SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali told NBC News.

Gregg Krupa The Detroit News Published 12:34 PM EST Jan 22, 2019 Detroit — The U.S. Figure Skating Championships are Nathan Chen’s show, with strong support from some dancers with roots in Michigan. Both the defending men’s world champion and the United States’ great depth in ice dancing, established after Russian coaches encamped in southeastern Michigan in the 1990s, will be on display in the national championships Thursday through Sunday at Little Caesars Arena. And, a sprite will provide some compelling moments. In the depleted women’s event, still called “ladies” in figure skating, a 13-year-old mighty mite, Alysa Liu, the 4-foot, 7-inch national junior champion from California, could take a big step toward stardom. Competing in August as a novice in the Asian Open Trophy in Thailand, Liu performed a clean triple axel. She is the youngest skater in history to land the triple axel in international … [Read more...] about Nathan Chen, Alysa Liu headline U.S. Figure Skating Championships
JC Reindl Detroit Free Press Published 9:30 AM EST Nov 15, 2018 The U.S. economy will grow a little slower in 2019 as the immediate effects of the recent deficit-widening tax cuts wear off, although workers will enjoy better wage growth into 2020, according to the University of Michigan's annual economic forecast released Thursday. The forecast by U-M economists anticipates 2.7 percent year-over-year GDP growth in 2019, below the 3.3 percent average pace of the first three quarters of this year. The Republicans' tax overhaul, which took effect in January, was largely responsible for this year's exceptional GDP growth that is expected to run 3 percent for the full year. Yet the forecast refers to this boost as a "budget-deficit-fueled high" that will ultimately push the federal deficit into uncharted territory.
