H1B-Visa-Program
As per the recent data released it shows that the applicants are indomitable about H1B visa programme regardless of the frequent public criticism received by Donald trump.

The new data by US Citizenship and Immigration Services released last Wednesday states that there are more than 3 lacs H1B visa extensions and petitions received by the US government so far this year. Last year on 2016, the US government received a total of 399,349 petitions and extension. This year a total of 58% applications are approved, which is much lower than the last year, in which 87% applications were approved.

This shift is recognized, as USCIS announced that it would probably crack down the frauds and abuse on H1B visas. The department also revealed that it will focus more on companies that heavily rely on H1B employees.

The president trump said in his statement on March 2016 that “the H1B visas are neither for high skilled worker nor for immigration, it's for temporary foreign workers who substitute the local American workers at a lower pay”. Trump also criticized the lottery element in awarding the visas.

The H1B visa petitioners are generally highly educated, holding a master degree or higher. The H1B visa program is common in the tech industry that allows foreign skilled employees to take up jobs at American companies. They are also paid well. In first six months of the current financial year, the average compensation for H1B petitioners were $92,317.
