Trump suspends H-1B visas, green cards till year-e

Bad news for all people who are dreaming to go to USA for jobs

US President Donald Trump suspended H-1B, L and other temporary work permits, which he said is aimed at protecting local workers who are facing unemployment due to the spread of coronavirus. The decision was blasted by the US tech industry, which said it would hurt innovation and delay the recovery of the US economy.

The suspension will be effective till December 31.

Indian nationals receive nearly 70% of the 85,000 H1-B visas issued each year. The restrictions will apply only to new work visas and not to existing holders who are in the United States currently. Those visa holders who are outside the US will not be able to return to the US.

The man keeps repeating "America First" all the time, this measure is a good way to establish coherence between his words and actions.

It is difficult to tell if this isn't just populism...Are these temporary workers really "stealing" American's jobs?

If I met the qualifications to work abroad I would choose Canada.

Many Indian IT professionals lost their job in the 2008 recession and could never get a job again for various reasons one being that only the best IT firms survived the others had to close down,many of these professionals benifited from the H1-B visa,US IT firms benifited from these professionals because they could get work done far more cheaply that what they would have to pay Americans,they will still get professionals in the US who would be adequately qualified for the job but would have to pay according to US wage scale which is quite high,many US citizens will benefit from the Visa ban till the year end,keeping in mind the US elections,Donald Trump was very good at creating jobs for Americans he is still trying to do that,Democrats are not considered to be pro India its to be seen if they win the election will they lift the ban immediately taking into consideration the economic situation

Especially in the present circumstances it is own people first.I do not see anything wrong with that, these are hard times.
Very good when Americans are going to benefit from this Presidential executive order rightfully so, and logic. I´m not a big fan at all of many of Trump´s policies but it is true that there are too many countires leaning on the USA.

Bill Clinton started opening up US investments in China he was quite pro China he did not support India even at that time,traditionally Democrats are not pro India if they win the elections again the scale will tilt in favor of China that is exactly what China wants a US government that will continue to have trade with China the Democrats would think China is the best bet for a US economic recovery

He's not taking it away. He is simply not issuing any new until at least after the year end.
