How Trump has been treated in London?

 

Its always been hard to be in the trade partners country when you just labelled tariff on their goods. Not only trade but also his immigration and foreign policy is not liked by most of the Britishers out there hence Thousands of people are expected to attend demonstrations in London and other places to protest against his controversial approach to immigration, trade and foreign policy.

                          Immigration         –         Trade         –          Foreign Policy

These are the major concerns of protesters faced by Trump in London and due to which he has to stay caution while roaming around in restaurants the way he used to walk around in his previous trips

The final part of Mr Trump’s trip in Scotland will likely exacerbate anger, as it is believed he will spend a lot time playing golf, with British taxpayers covering the £5m cost of security.

Showcasing the UK’s military and its capabilities will form a key element of the trip for the UK, with the US defense secretary having recently questioned Britain’s ongoing commitment to maintaining world-class forces.

The visit will take in a lavish black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, near Oxford, a working lunch with Ms May at Chequers, and a meeting with the Queen at Windsor Castle, but only a brief overnight stay in London.

Asked whether the president’s schedule was designed to keep him away from possible protests, a Downing Street spokeswoman said: “We’re looking forward to making sure the president has a chance to see and experience the UK beyond London and the South-East.”

Donald Trump ‘considered invading Venezuela’, reports say

She added that it is normal for prime ministers to make use of Chequers when foreign leaders are visiting, with former presidents Richard Nixon, George Bush Senior and Junior having all visited the 16th-century manor house in Buckinghamshire.

But the majority of the trip being outside London, means it seems unlikely the president will come close enough to Westminster to see the “Trump baby” blimp protesters plan to fly over the houses of parliament, after receiving permission for the stunt from London mayor Sadiq Khan.

The Downing Street spokeswoman added: “As with any protest, we are a free and open democracy and we believe in the right to peaceful protest.

“But I would also say that I think the majority of British people understand the importance of the UK-US alliance.

“The presidential visit is an important moment to recognise our close and special relationship and to have good and frank discussions on the key issues.”

Mr Trump arrives in the UK on board Air Force One next Thursday afternoon, straight from the Nato summit in Brussels where he is expected to confront European allies over levels of defence

The president and his wife Melania will then be guests of honour at a dinner for around 100 guests at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, a personal hero of the president.

The trip to the 18th-century country house, built for the first Duke of Marlborough as a reward for his military victories, will begin with a military ceremony in the Great Court of the Palace, where the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards will play the Liberty Fanfare, Amazing Grace, and the National Emblem.

Later in the trip Ms May and Mr Trump will also visit an unnamed defence site to view a demonstration of UK military capabilities, with a strong stress on integrated UK-US training.

The focus on defence comes after Mr Trump appeared to be impressed with the French military parade he saw on Bastille Day while being hosted by Emmanuel Macron earlier this year.

Since then the two leaders have apparently formed a close relationship and earlier this week a leaked letter from the US defense secretary Jim Mattis suggested France could be the “partner of choice” for the US in international affairs in the future.

The Downing Street spokeswoman said: “In every aspect of our relationship, we are seeking to deepen our special relationship and defence is one of those, and security.

“Our armed forces have fought together for over a century and no two countries work closer together in defence co-operation and that element of the visit is a reflection of that.”

The dinner at Blenheim will be attended by the Prime Minister, with guests including leaders of UK business sectors including financial services, travel, creative industries, food and drink, engineering, tech, infrastructure, pharmaceuticals and defence.

Downing Street said it is intended to “celebrate the strong business links between our two countries” at a time when the UK is hoping to strike a free trade deal with the US following Brexit.

Immigration agents descend in 7 eleven stores in hunt of illegal working individuals: 100 Stores under raid

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said the sweep was meant to ensure that employers had not hired individuals without work authorizations.

The agency said the raids ― the largest operation against an employer under the Trump administration ― were meant to serve as a “strong message” to other businesses to follow the law by not hiring undocumented workers. Source: NR

American-Japanese international chain of convenience stores, headquartered in Irving, Texas, that operates, franchises, and licenses some 56,600 stores in 18 countries. The chain was known as Tote’m Stores until renamed in 1946

In a dramatic crackdown, immigration agents arrived unannounced at nearly 100 7-Eleven stores across the country before dawn Wednesday, interviewing employees and managers, serving audit notices and arresting 21 workers.

Agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement conducted sweeps of 98 stores in 17 states and Washington, D.C., arresting 21 people on suspicion of being in the country illegally.

“Today’s actions send a strong message to U.S. businesses that hire and employ an illegal workforce: ICE will enforce the law, and if you are found to be breaking the law, you will be held accountable,” Thomas D. Homan, ICE’s deputy director, said in a statement. Source: NPR

All 21 people ICE arrested were employees, the agency confirmed.

“When we talk about targeting employers, that’s auditing employers to see if they followed those rules. It’s not necessary to show up with agents and interview people on site unannounced,” Angela Banks, an immigration expert, and professor of law at Arizona State told HuffPost.

“Businesses that hire illegal workers are a pull factor for illegal immigration, and we are working hard to remove this magnet,” Homan said. “ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration.”

Derek N. Benner, another top ICE official, warned that Wednesday’s raids were “a harbinger of what’s to come.” http://www.nbc.news

UK govt has finally realized they are diverting students to other countries which is odd

Sooner or later they had to take this issue into consideration. Its never too late to re-consider work permit visa policy for students doing masters or graduation. However, for now, international students will have to make do with a slight relaxation in the rules.

They realized at the right time when most of the students are put their UK card off the move and moving on to Australia, Canada, and Germany. Jan onwards they will give students work permit visa of 12-24 months 

According to immigration experts, this change is the result of a prolonged dialogue between UK universities and the government. As student visas, known as Tier-4 visas, are granted for the duration of the course plus a few months, it hampered the ability of international students to look for jobs in the UK. For instance when student completes his Master coursework and after completion of thesis he was only be given 4 months and even those months students were sure they won’t get extension because of strict visa policy but now UK government has changed it to flexible 12-24 months work permit

International students in the UK will soon enjoy more flexibility in switching over to work visas, with new immigration rules set to be introduced from January 11.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has advocated a new category of post-study work visas. In his blueprint paper—’Immigration, a future approach’, Khan had pointed to dwindling international student numbers. His suggestion was that a post-study work visa should be distinct from the Tier-2 route and should enable students to work in the UK for 12-24 months after graduation.
As per the new rules, foreign students can switch over to Tier-2 visa (or skilled worker visa) as soon as they complete their course. According to current norms, they must wait until they obtain a degree to apply for the Tier-2 visa. This gave students only a small time frame to find a job while still in the UK.

What is British searching for, Brexit?

What does Brexit mean?

It is a word that has turned out to be utilized as a shorthand method for saying the UK leaving the EU – combining the words Britain and exit to get Brexit, say as a conceivable Greek exit from the euro was named Grexit previously.

 Why is Britain leaving the European Union?

A choice – a vote in which everybody (or almost everybody) of voting age can partake – was hung on Thursday 23 June 2016, to choose whether the UK should leave or stay in the European Union. Leave won by 51.9% to 48.1%. The choice turnout was 71.8%, with more than 30 million individuals voting.

Why UK’s EU choice might be sooner than you might suspect

Securities exchanges have all the earmarks of being disregarding the possibility of the U.K. leaving the EU (summed up in the expression “Brexit). A Late trial of popular assessment, for example, the Scottish autonomy submission and the decision, recommend the British open likes the present state of affairs. Conclusion surveys recommend around 39 percent would vote to an incredible EU in a choice.

 

However popular conclusion on this issue has demonstrated unstable before, and U.K. surveyors famously neglected to anticipate the result of the current general race. A low turnout could give the No crusade, whose voters are probably going to be more intense, a lift.

Here, we investigate a portion of the issues driving the level-headed discussion over the U. K’s. future in Europe.

 Take the cash

The U.K. is a net supporter of the EU – as are other substantial economies like Germany and France. The cash is utilized crosswise over Europe to guarantee a level playing field for the EU’s poorer nations by being put resources into, for instance, new streets or broadband. Be that as it may, the bill is ascending as the U. K’s. economy enhances, with a net commitment of £11.3 billion ($17.4 billion) in 2013, contrasted with £2.7 billion out of 2008, as indicated by official UK information.

Where else?

One of the financial contentions frequently set forward for Brexit is that EU participation is hampering the U. K’s. exchange ties outside the exchanging alliance.

EU enrollment would be supplanted by “new financial business with the entire world”, as indicated by expert Brexit campaign amass Global Britain – however the degree of this trade is questionable, and markets, as the adage goes, hate vulnerability.

Head administrator David Cameron and Education Secretary Nicky Morgan meet understudies amid a visit to the Green School for Girls in London.

New UK government may battle with its promises

It is hard to truly contend that EU enrollment is a more noteworthy boundary to exchanging with China – to say one nation where the U.K. government is dedicating a great deal of exertion – than the long-haul decreases in U.K. producing. Glad eurozone part Germany sent out 74.5 billion euros worth of merchandise to China a year ago, more than five times the estimation of U.K. fares to China.

 

Is there any good reason why we wouldn’t need unhindered commerce with our biggest market?” Lucy Thomas, battle chief at professional EU campaign aggregate Business for New Europe, told CNBC.

“We have a great deal more clout arranging exchange bargains as a feature of that gathering as opposed to alone.”

 Movement tangle

An opportunity of development for work is one of the key standards of the EU, and with more than 14 million residents, from footballers to natural product pickers, living in an EU nation which they weren’t conceived in, it influences many people. This simplicity of development has been assaulted in the U.K., which had an out of the blue abnormal state of relocation from a few old Soviet coalition states after they joined the EU. A portion of the manual specialists who felt undermined by this new, modest, wellspring of work along these lines turned towards Nigel Farage’s U.K. Autonomy Party. Another key purpose of exacerbation is the privilege of vagrants to assert welfare benefits in the U.K. – which Cameron is endeavoring to deny.

Lawful issue

One point of convergence for asserted European control over U.K. laws is the impact of the European Court of Human Rights, which in certain prominent cases has made it harder to expel outside conceived hoodlums. If the U.K. moves far from the ECHR’s impact, it would be an organization with separated Belarus as the main European nations not to conform to it.

 Outside looking in

As the euro zone’s monetary ties are tied more tightly following the credit emergency, there are worries that the EU individuals who clutched their own monetary forms, including the U.K., Denmark, and Sweden, might not have enough impact on basic leadership.

 In it to win it

In case of a Brexit, those master EU participation contend, the U.K. won’t have the capacity to change EU strategies – yet will at present need to manage their outcomes.

“It looks bad to separate from our significant market where we would at present face every one of the expenses of consistency and appreciate none of the impacts. We can accomplish change by being a dynamic and driving part from inside,” Terry Scuoler, CEO of U.K. producer’s affiliation EEF, contended.

 What is Britain searching for?

Mr. Cameron said he would not like to uncover full points of interest of his arranging hand before genuine exchanges get going.

Through a progression of addresses and daily paper articles, he has given a diagram of his needs at the same time, and in November, he set down his goals on paper without precedent for a letter to Donald Tusk, the leader of the European Council.

       Four key targets are:

Monetary administration: Securing an express acknowledgment that the euro is by all account not the only money of the European Union, to guarantee nations outside the eurozone are not physically impeded. The UK needs protects that means to promote budgetary union can’t be forced on non-eurozone individuals and the UK won’t need to add to eurozone bailouts

 Aggressiveness: Setting an objective for the lessening of the “weight” of over the top control and broadening the single market

 

Migration: Restricting access to in-work and out-of-work advantages to EU transients. Clergymen need to stop those going to the UK from asserting certain advantages until the point when they have been occupant for a long time. Clergymen have purportedly been cautioned by the UK’s best government worker this could be oppressive and any breaking points might be diminished to not as much as a year. A choice of a “crisis brake” to stop the installments for a long time is being talked about as a bargain

Sway: Allowing Britain to quit from the EU’s establishing aspiration to fashion a “nearer and nearer union” of the people groups of Europe so it won’t be drawn into promoting political incorporation. Giving more noteworthy forces to national parliaments to square EU enactment.
