Trump to extend US work visa ban until end of 2020 | News | DW | 22.06.2020

The visa categories that will be affected by the new order include H-1B visas for skilled workers, L-1 visas for workers being transferred within a company, most J visas for academics and researchers, the H-2B visas for seasonal workers. Some categories of seasonal workers, like those in the food processing industry, will be exempted.

Businesses who depend on foreign workers have long opposed curbs to legal immigration, while the US Chamber of Commerce, the nation’s largest business association, has said the policy will stifle the economic recovery.

Grin. And people want to cut money from NPR? Ha, ha, ha – as the two contractors nod to each other on the way to the bank.

US Army’s top secret psyops initiative aimed at the manipulation of social media through the use of fake online personas. This $200 million CENTCOM programme was first developed for use in Iraq and is now said to be targeted at countering Taliban propaganda in Afghanistan.
