President Trump Signs Executive Order Targeting H-1B Visas

On April 18, 2017, President trump signed the “Buy American, Hire American” Executive Order on the premise that the H-1B program is taking away jobs from American workers. H-1B visa workers do not take jobs away from U.S. workers and the program does not drive down wages, but rather is filling gaps in America’s workforce. The H-1B program already contains numerous protections for American workers. The executive order mandates H-1B program reform to ensure that visas are awarded to the most skilled or the highest paid beneficiaries. The executive order can be viewed in its entirety here.
