President of the United States Donald trump announced the introduction of new restrictions on work visas to reduce entering the country of foreign workers and specialists. But not all businesses agree with trump — the country lacks educated managers, employees and workers.
“We’re going to announce something about the visa tomorrow or the day after,” said trump in an interview with Fox News channel. Trump made exceptions, for example, “for a large business where there are certain people who come for a long time, but very few exceptions”.
it is Expected that President trump will sign extension immigration restrictions in the coming days in response to the economic downturn because of the pandemic coronavirus. In April 202ог year, trump signed a document on the suspension of some forms of immigration, citing “the impact of foreign workers on the labor market of the United States, especially in conditions of high domestic unemployment and weak demand for labor.” This decree trump was suspended for 60 days green card for immigrants who are currently outside the U.S. and do not have a valid immigrant visa.
Now suspend the issuance of visas H-1B (for professionals, up to 6 years) and H-2B (by year), as well as visas L-1 for CEOs and J-1 visa for training programs and experience exchange before the end of the year, reported Fox News. Visa H-2A for temporary agricultural workers, may avoid the prohibition.
But the U.S. chamber of Commerce concerned by the decision of trump. “As the recovery of the economy American companies need assurance that they can meet all their manpower requirements. For this it is essential that they have access to the talents within the country and from around the world,” said CEO of the US chamber of Commerce Thomas Donohue in a letter to Trump. According to the head of the US chamber of Commerce, this decision “bywill Dorset the ability of the U.S. economy to grow and create jobs.”
