The Trump administration is working to impose new reforms on immigration.
According to The Hill:
The Trump administration is set to publish additional immigration reforms on Tuesday aimed at making it more difficult for skilled foreign workers to acquire visas.
The changes are the latest effort by the Trump administration in recent months to crack down on the use of visas as part of its broader attempt to limit the flow of foreign workers.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is expected to publish regulations targeting H-1B visas that are granted to skilled workers and are common in the tech industry. Recipients can typically stay in the United States for multiple years.
The rules, which will go into effect immediately, would heighten requirements for businesses who hire foreign workers on H-1B visas, according to details reviewed by The Hill. The changes may be challenged in court.
The rule is also going to also require companies to pay H1-B visa holders more in an effort to keep American workers from being undercut.
