High-skills visa applications drop ahead of Trump move to limit program

The President then signed an executive order requiring the federal government to buy American-made products if at all possible.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday that will make it more hard for American companies to hire foreign workers, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency.

"The H-1B visa program is commonly discussed as being for when employers have a labor shortage", said Daniel Costa, director of immigration law and policy research at the Economic Policy Institute. None responded to requests for comment.

In addition to addressing the visas issue, he also ordered a review of government procurement rules favouring American companies to see if they are actually benefiting, especially the U.S. steel industry. Donald Trump, during his election campaign, had raised the issue of "bringing jobs back to Americans" and began working on modifying the H-1B visa programme since the early days of assuming leadership.

Guardiola: 'City far behind Champions League contenders'
Guardiola's men also have the FA Cup to look forward to, with a game against Arsenal scheduled in the semi-finals next weekend. Shane Long, 28, will be a threat to Manchester City while Nathan Ward , 23, is emerging as a real talent for his team.

The order comes as part of the President Trump's campaign to put "America First".

As he nears the 100-day benchmark of his presidency, Trump still has no major legislative achievements.

With the order, Trump is formally calling for the secretary of commerce and the USA trade representative to assess "the impacts of all US free trade agreements" as part of the new plan.

The order is more administrative in nature than a clear policy change. "But [the order] calls for stepped-up enforcement and that could mean things like doing more random visits of employers, or audits of employers who have a high percentage of H-1B visa holders". The government procurement section did.

Local police and administrative officials rushed to the spot and pacified the situation. The students later blocked traffic on the highway near Banihal.

"The buy and hire American order I'm about to sign will protect workers and students like you", Trump told a crowd according to CNN at Snap-On Tools, the Wisconsin-based manufacturer to which he travelled today to provide a backdrop as he signs the order. Which is very different than I think how most people think of the H-1B program. "We believe jobs must be offered to American workers first". The Silicon Valley Leadership Group reports that there are 125,000 job openings a year. Such a change could significantly impact large Indian IT companies which bring thousands of engineers and programmers on H-1B visas to work on United States projects, says IT analyst Girish Pai. "For far too long the H-1B visa has been abused by some as a cheap way to replace American workers".

Trump made it clear that he doesn't agree with fact that H-1Bs are now doled out under a lottery system.

The tech industry is particularly sensitive to the visa program.

President Trump has used the visa program to hire foreign workers at this properties for many years.
