Donald Trump to Approve New H-1B Visa Rules, Tech Workers to Face Heat

Donald Trump to Approve New H-1B Visa Rules
President Donald Trump is about to sign a new executive order that could dash the dreams of thousands of Indian IT workers. The H1-B visa is a work permit used by tech companies in Silicon Valley to hire skilled foreign workers. Many Republican Party candidates term it as a discrimination against the American workers. Media reports suggest that the executive order has taken a draft form and is awaiting President Trump’s approval.  The new order would put pressure on tech companies across United States to hire American workers. As minimum salary requirement for foreign workers has been increased to $130,000, it leaves no option for the companies but to hire US employees. 

Tech companies across Silicon Valley have already expressed their disappointment against the new executive order that restricted refugees from seven Muslim majority countries. Now, an order pertaining to the H-1B visas would affect most companies in the Silicon Valley and Indian workers as well. United States is ravaged with protests and rallies, while the new Visa norms could add fuel to fire.

President Trump’s new legislation would not just affect Indian companies, but US firms including Apple, Google and Microsoft as well.

Jeff Sessions, president Trump's nominee for attorney general, has informed that he would take appropriate steps to bring in legislative measures to crack down on "misuse" of H-1B and L-1 work visas. On the other hand, new executive order will also affect E-2, and B-1 Visas, which are issued to investors and business people. No changes were proposed to TN-1 Visas, which are issued to high skilled workers from Canada, as it requires amendments to NAFTA treaty.
