Right now, widespread abuse in our immigration system is allowing American workers of all backgrounds to be replaced by workers brought in from other countries. To fill the same job for sometimes less pay, this will stop. American workers have long called for reforms to end these visa abuses. And today their calls are being answered for the first time.
That includes taking the first steps to set in motion a long overdue reform of H-1B visas. Right now, H-1B visas are awarded in a totally random lottery, and that's wrong. Instead, they should be given to the most skilled and highest paid applicants. And they should never, ever be used to replace Americans.
No one can compete with American workers when they are given a fair and level playing field, which has not happened for decades. We're using every tool at our disposal to restore the American dream.
