Donald Trump signs executive order to reform H-1B visas

Al Jazeera reports on Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” executive order demanding changes to the H-1B visa program. However, this executive order is an overly simple solution to a complex problem, and it limiting temporary work visas to boost US employment rates could have the opposite effect.

 

Immigrants account for a disproportionately large share of start-ups and patents in the United States, and for every H-1B position requested, U.S. tech companies increase their employment by five workers. Cutting the H-1B program pushes talented immigrants to look elsewhere, and this administration risks hurting the U.S. economy by accelerating the existing problem of off-shoring work and talent to other countries.

This isn’t the first time Trump’s travel ban has been overruled by federal judges. However, this time, his options have been limited. He has two rulings against him in two federal circuits, meaning he’ll now have to persuade two appeals courts to overturn lower judges’ rulings to immediately lift the freeze on his ban.
