President Trump's Immigration
Orders and H1B Program
Will the President Trump's immigration executive orders impact the H1B program and H1B workers?
President Trump has signed several immigration related executive orders. Another possible proposed order, entitled “Executive Order on Protecting American Jobs and Workers by Strengthening the Integrity of Foreign Worker Visa Programs” may include several provisions related to the employment-based immigration system.
The unconfirmed draft version of a new executive order would impact on the H1B visa program, the executive order instructs the Secretary of Homeland Security to:
Also, the OPT program gives foreign graduates in fields like science, technology, engineering or math the right to find jobs in the U.S. for up to 36 months, depending on their degree subject. Mr. Trump could roll the time limit back to the original 12 months, the threshold until it was expanded under President George W. Bush in 2008, and tighten the eligible fields of study.
These instructions are vague, and they may impact H1B program. It may result in direct action against H1B program, but it is possible that this order will never be signed.
