Donald Trump administration finally took a major decision to cancel the H-1B visa after four years of intimidation

The Trump administration finally took a major decision to cancel the H-1B visa after four years of intimidation. By December 2020, the US government has banned all facilities to grant foreign workers working visas in the US.

It also includes H-AB visas prominently given to Information Technology (IT) professionals, which are largely allocated among Indian IT professionals.


Major contribution of people coming from other countries

Sundar Pichai, CEO of search engine Google, expressed disappointment over President Donald Trump's ban on employment-based visa programs. He said in a tweet, "Immigration has contributed greatly to America's economic success and made it a global leader in technology.

People from other countries have made a big contribution to what Google is today.

Sundar Pichai said, 'I am disappointed with today's announcement.  We are with people coming from other countries for employment and will continue to work to create opportunities for all. '

Trump administration said, it is necessary to give priority to employment to American people


The US administration says that due to the circumstances created by Covid-19, it is necessary to give preference to the American people in employment.

Therefore, foreign workers have to be stopped. They estimate that about 5.25 lakh jobs, which were given to foreigners, will now be given to American youth.

Every year America gives 70-80 thousand H-1B visas to foreigners, out of which only 50-60 thousand Indian professionals get it.

There are still three lakh Indian IT professionals working there on this visa.  Some of these are expected to have an impact on employment.

Leading diplomat Alice G. Wells also protested

In a separate statement, Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, condemned the Trump administration's move. He said the latest travel ban is a new version of the racial and anti-foreign sentiment initiated by Donald Trump and Stephen Miller.

Alice G. Wells, a prominent diplomat for South and Central Asia in the Trump administration until a few days ago, has also opposed the move.

He said, "The ability to attract the best and the best through the H1B visa program has made America more successful and resilient."  Knowing the art of tying foreign talent is America's strength, not weakness.

Other companies also protested


NASSCOM has said that this step will only harm America's interests. There is a shortage of local talent, so American companies will hand over their work to more foreign countries.

Heavy companies in the IT sector such as Microsoft and Tesla also protested. Several prominent US lawmakers have also spoken out against American interests.
