Trump signs order curbing foreign workers

"We are going to do everything in our power to make sure that more products are stamped, with those wonderful words, made in the USA", Trump told a crowd of technical students and manufacturing employees at the headquarters of Snap-On Tools in Kenosha. The stated goal of this EO is to protect the American economy by having the USA government and agencies focus on purchasing goods made in America, and to also protect American workers.

The executive order marks President Trump's latest endeavor to enact one of his campaign policies aimed at securing jobs for American citizens.

As Trump approaches his 100-day milestone in the White House, he has failed to pass any serious policies through Congress. With his attempts to overhaul healthcare and tax law not bearing fruit so far in a Congress controlled by his fellow Republicans, Trump has leaned heavily on executive orders to seek changes to the USA economy. India's National Association of Software and Services even told the Times that the H-1B visa program only exists because the USA is constantly short on high-skilled IT talent.

US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order, targeting foreign workers in high-skilled positions by restricting visa rules.

Going to a more merit-based H-1B system could attract more people with advanced science and technology skills, he said in a statement. "Does that make sense?" he said.

The move is a deterrent to Indian IT firms which send software engineers to the USA on H-1B visas. "Right now, the widespread abuse in our immigration system is allowing American workers... to be replaced by workers brought in from other countries to fill the same job, for sometimes less pay".

Coghlan's leap, Stroman's hit lift Blue Jays over Cards 6-5
Coghlan had to hold for a bit to make sure that the ball wouldn't be caught which made him a sitting duck at home plate. The Blue Jays improved to 6-14 with their third win in five games, one coming after they didn't land in St.

Employers from Walt Disney World to the University of California in San Francisco have laid off their tech employees and replaced them with H-1B visa holders. Among the guidelines, computer programmes with no additional qualification will not be acceptable as "speciality occupation".

About 85,000 H-1B visas are distributed annually by lottery.

AILA president William A Stock said that H-1B workers helped transform state and local economies across the nation, adding that the immigration system was critical to all geographic and industry sectors, not just Silicon Valley.

Instead of a lottery, Trump wants to prioritize "the most skilled and highest paid applicants". Facebook did not respond to requests for comment.

During his campaign, Trump said he supported high-skilled visas but later came out against them. The order was short on detail, and does not change any current rules.
