Rules in Worker Visa Program, Made Hard by Trump Administration

November 2017, 27
EMAIL  Print A+
Today the Technology Industry is heavily dependent on employing foreign workers through Visa Programs, like the H-1B, which are focused on skilled applicants.

The US administration has become strict with the employment-visa application process, making it difficult for companies, to employ overseas workers, by increasing the federal scrutiny.

President Trump had campaigned on a promise to decrease illegal immigration. The steps taken today, are affecting the legal way for people to arrive in the US. It has targeted the highly skilled H-1B visa program, and returned several applications, from January to August. Under the previous set up, very few applications were returned, as per the data, provided by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, that supervises the H-1B program.

Ben Johnson, Executive Director, American Immigration Lawyers Association stated that “The administration is working with the goal of grinding the process to either stop or slow it down in order to achieve a decreased figure in legal immigration through the way of implementation instead of legislative methods.”

The Trump administration or the Congress so far have not made any far-reaching changes to the visa regime, but a few people have expected more restrictions since October when Francis Cissna assumed directorship of USCIS. He is a skeptic of visa programs. Two regulatory changes are close to ending and would undo the measures, made the previous set up, to simplify the application process, for skilled overseas workers.

It is expected that the provision, to allow the spouses of H-1B visa holders, the right to work, will be scrapped. There could be changes to the Optional Practical Training Program, which allows and authorizes, overseas graduates, who had studied Science and Technology, from U.S. colleges to work for two years. The administration is likely to either to do away with the benefit or decrease the time given for work authorization.
