The list of occupations is practically every business related occupation you can think of. Students on f1 can train with a company who may or may not file for them to get a h1b to green card after graduation. Does that not take jobs away from american graduates?

That would depend on whether there was a suitably qualified American graduate for the position in question. Additionally, what percentage of H1Bs end up going to people on F1s?

Yeah, and than charge them import duties if they want access to the American Market.

The rest of the third world needs to start developing their economies beyond subsistence wage jobs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americ...(economic_plan)

Aren't foreign governments justified when they require an "American company", or an international company, to base part of its operations in the foreign country, in proportion to the business it does there? Like the US car companies manufacturing in Canada.

I'm not sure whether this point is conceded in Trump's threats to US companies that move part of their operations abroad.

Duties that ultimately end up being paid for by the US consumer.

I'm not sure if 100,000 visa is a lot of visas to be revoked in a matter of days.

More than 100,000 visas revoked under Donald Trump's travel ban as he issues sanctions on Iran over ballistic missile test

At least they'll have jobs to pay the import duties. Beats being unemployed.

Henry Ford, raised the wages of the average worker 1 1/2 times so they'd have the money to buy his car and instead of exporting cars to Europe he built factories there. We need to get back to that line of thinking.

Do what China does, if you want access to the Chinese market you build in China. Now they are the second largest economy.

This is what America did in the 19th century they imposed tariffs on imports and grew their domestic economy. Germany's doing the same in the EU, it's a closed market to German manufactured goods. The solution is quite simple.

But that took money out of Henry Ford's pocket. CEOs these days are too greedy to make such a move.

And their greed is destroying the market. Ford's decision was a business decision. He wasn't tone deaf to his market. He knew who his customers were.
