Executive Order on Aligning Federal Contracting and Hiring Practices With the Interests of American Workers

 

 Issued on: August 3, 2020

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Policy.  It is the policy of the executive branch to create opportunities for United States workers to compete for jobs, including jobs created through Federal contracts.  These opportunities, particularly in regions where the Federal Government remains the largest employer, are especially critical during the economic dislocation caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  When employers trade American jobs for temporary foreign labor, for example, it reduces opportunities for United States workers in a manner inconsistent with the role guest-worker programs are meant to play in the Nation’s economy.

Sec. 2.  Review of Contracting and Hiring Practices.  (a)  The head of each executive department and agency (agency) that enters into contracts shall review, to the extent practicable, performance of contracts (including subcontracts) awarded by the agency in fiscal years 2018 and 2019 to assess:

(i)   whether contractors (including subcontractors)  used temporary foreign labor for contracts performed in the United States, and, if so, the nature of the work performed by temporary foreign labor on such contracts; whether opportunities for United States workers were affected by such hiring; and any potential effects on the national security caused by such hiring; and

(ii)  whether contractors (including subcontractors)  performed in foreign countries services previously performed in the United States, and, if so, whether opportunities for United States workers were affected by such offshoring; whether affected United States workers were eligible for assistance under the Trade Adjustment Assistance program authorized by the Trade Act of 1974; and any potential effects on the national security caused by such offshoring.

(b)  The head of each agency that enters into contracts shall assess any negative impact of contractors’ and subcontractors’ temporary foreign labor hiring practices or offshoring practices on the economy and efficiency of Federal procurement and on the national security, and propose action, if necessary and as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, to improve the economy and efficiency of Federal procurement and protect the national security.

(c)  The head of each agency shall, in coordination with the Director of the Office of Personnel Management, review the employment policies of the agency to assess the agency’s compliance with Executive Order 11935 of September 2, 1976 (Citizenship Requirements for Federal Employment), and section 704 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, Public Law 116-93.

(d)  Within 120 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit a report to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget summarizing the results of the reviews required by subsections (a) through (c) of this section; recommending, if necessary, corrective actions that may be taken by the agency and timeframes to implement such actions; and proposing any Presidential actions that may be appropriate.

Sec. 3.  Measures to Prevent Adverse Effects on United States Workers.  Within 45 days of the date of this order, the Secretaries of Labor and Homeland Security shall take action, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, to protect United States workers from any adverse effects on wages and working conditions caused by the employment of H-1B visa holders at job sites (including third-party job sites), including measures to ensure that all employers of H-1B visa holders, including secondary employers, adhere to the requirements of section 212(n)
(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1182(n)(1)).

Sec. 4.  General Provisions.  (a)  Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i)   the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii)  the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b)  This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c)  This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Which the Federal government workforce is what this EO is talking about should be geared toward USCs. I saw somewhere that he was pretty miffed when he went to the TVA and saw it staffed by H1B workers not Americans

Oh yeah and who is talking about illegal immigration, law breaker and free ride here?

Might want to follow the thread you're posting in, where it's suggested the President is a dictator (and the country he represents a "dictator country") for using his constitutional authority to implement immigration policies that benefit Americans first rather than foreigners that aren't owed anything.

No I'm questioning you why did you wrote this to me " Why, because people here advocate for legal immigration, the rule of law, and not a free for all to whoever wants to come?  "

 

Am I advocating illegal immigration, encouraging breaking the law or get a free ride here?

People paying attention to the thread are capable of seeing what you're advocating, including answering questions with questions.

Are you saying I'm advocating for illegal immigration ? Oh man 🤣🤣🤣, fine, fine

I think you're trying too hard to play word games, you clearly agree with the OP bashing the US as a "dictator country" and are bashing people here as anti-immigrant. I was simply asking you to justify your statement, but you're free to dance around like this too, it's not like it changes what's already known.
