Trump's New Order on Visas Could Make American Colleges Less Appealing Overseas

SNA, -0.39% to sign the order and tout what he calls his "buy American, hire American" agenda.

"The current campaign to discredit our sector is driven by persistent myths, such as the ideas that H-1B visa holders are "cheap labor" and "displace American workers" who 'train their replacements, ' none of which is accurate", the Indian industry association said.

"And his two high-profile executive orders cracking down on immigration from predominantly Muslim nations have been stymied by the courts", the paper pointed out.

Speaking at the headquarters of Wisconsin-based toolmaker Snap-on, Trump said that the order "declares that the policy of our government is to aggressively promote and use American-made goods and to ensure that American labor is hired to do the job".

"No longer are we going to allow foreign countries to cheat our producers and our workers out of federal contracts".

Reforming the H-1B visa system was one of the major election promises of Trump.

H-1B visas are granted for three years at a time to foreign workers that have specialized knowledge in fields where there are a shortage of American workers, typically in science, information technology and engineering.

"We continue to invest in the local communities in which we operate, including hiring local American top talent, bringing education and training to our clients to shrink the skills gap in the U.S.", Infosys said in a statement. And why shouldn't federal agencies buy American products? "Like all the other executive orders, it's just words - he's calling for new studies. So they've said before and they said again after [Tuesday's] executive order that they're doubling-down on training and they're trying to find American talent, but not having enough luck".

The number of applications coming in has gone down this year, Repko says, but is still higher than the 85,000 cap on how many visas are issued. It's not going to fix the problem. An administration official told reporters on Monday that 80% of the immigrants who enter the USA on H-1B visas are paid less than the median wage in their fields.

United States lawmakers have already tabled more than half adozen legislations in the Congress with specific proposals to reform and improve the H-1B visas systems. But an H-1B review is overdue.
