Status of H1B Visas

In March 2017, the United States reached its mandated allotment of 66,000 H-2B visas. This left many businesses with a need for more qualified workers. The Trump administration has agreed to allow another 15,000 temporary and non-agricultural foreign workers into the U.S to fill the need. In order to get these workers, companies must attest, under the penalty of perjury, that the they are likely to suffer irreparable harm if they are not able to get more workers. This is quoted as a one-time increase aimed to help these suffering businesses temporarily while they find more qualified U.S. citizens as workers. The move is surprising being that up to this point Trump has strongly encouraged finding American workers and has maintained a strong stance againNow st immigration and hiring immigrant workers.
Trump and his administration are crafting a plan to cut legal immigration in half by the year 2027. The long-run objective of the bill will be to create higher wages for workers, especially low skilled workers who receive close to minimum wage. The legislation that will be proposed will shift focus from our current system that favors those with family in the U.S. to a more merit based approach. The new plan would give more green cards to certain categories of people like outstanding professors and researchers, those holding advanced degrees, those with extraordinary ability in a particular field, etc. The idea is that only allowing high skilled workers, will raises the minimum wage and help propel the lower class into the middle class by creating more of a demand for work. Currently, those admitted into the U.S. based on merit account for 10% of legal immigrants over the last 15 years. It is unclear to this point how much support the bill will garner once it is made and voted upon, but this is just one of the latest plans by the Trump administration to limit immigration.
Now a year later, it's becoming harder and harder to win such cases.
