How Trump's order on H-1B visas could affect Washington

President Donald Trump- hammering his "America First" campaign theme after recent policy flip-flops that have infuriated his populist base - signed an executive order on Tuesday authorizing studies and tweaks in government rules that could lead to restrictions on foreign technical workers.

Here's what Trump says about it: "Right now, widespread abuse in our immigration system is allowing American workers of all backgrounds to be replaced by workers brought in from other countries to fill the same job for sometimes less pay".

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday that attempts to make good on one of his biggest campaign pledges.

France promises proof Al Assad regime behind chemical attack
President Donald Trump's order to bomb the airbase used to launch a suspected chemical attack but Britain was not involved in it. The offensive is to date the only direct action the U.S. has taken against Mr Assad's regime in more than six years of war.

"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 order is an attempt by Trump to carry out his "America First" campaign pledges to reform US immigration policies and encourage purchases of American products.

Trump said the executive order sends a "powerful signal to the world" that the United States will defend its workers, protect their jobs and revive the words "made in the USA". "It's America first, you better believe it. Does that make sense?" he said. Mr Pai sees Trump's executive order coming into force from next year. "And "Hire American' generally refers to the body of law and policy concerning how our immigration, visa and guest worker programs are operated to ensure proper protections for American workers".

Trump issued the 'Buy American, Hire American' executive order on Tuesday in Wisconsin, stating that the order will tighten guest worker visas like H1-B, and would also require American agencies to purchase more products and services from U.S. companies and workers. Trump was likely referring to Tata and companies such as Infosys when he talked about the visa program being used to bring in workers from outside the U.S.to work in lower-paying information technology jobs.

The US has already moved on addressing this issue by announcing a new set of guidelines for those qualifying for H-1B visas.

India accounts for the highest pool of qualified IT professionals, whose services go a long way in making American companies globally competitive.
