US President Donald Trump, in all likelihood may direct a complete review of the high-skilled immigration visa program of the country. This new measure will be part of the actions that are taken by US to catch companies, including those in tech industry, that have employed foreign workers in place of Americans.
In the new executive order that is expected soon from Donald Trump, instructions will be given to the Department of Homeland Security that is responsible for the issuance of famous H-1B visa. The pattern in which this visa is being granted will be reviewed thoroughly.
The agency will also be directed to make changes in the visa process in such a way that the jobs do not go to foreign workers who are employed just because they are paid less as compared to their US counterparts.
The new executive order which will be issued with the objective of “buy American, hire American” will not make any changes in the day-to-day working of the agency.
The H-1B visa is being supported by numerous companies in the Silicon Valley. The new executive order will at least open up the program for a formal review. It is expected that the president will make the announcement for the change during his visit to Wisconsin tomorrow.
The latest move from US president Donald Trump may leave many companies in the tech industry wondering around. This will be the latest addition in the number of restrictions that are being imposed by the present administration to stop employment of high-skilled foreign workers.
Just around a month ago, the Donald Trump administration implemented the rule to put H-1B visa under greater scrutiny. It is expected that employers of H-1B visa will be checked to determine if they have evaded the good faith effort to hire workers in US.
According to officials at Department of Homeland Security, programmers who are applying for H-1B visa will have to justify that they are in fact doing complex, specialized jobs. These new rules will come down hard on Indian tech companies such as Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys.
