It looks like Trump is at it again as presidential elections approach a crucial point. Donald Trump signed an executive order on August 3 that barring federal agencies from employing H-1B workers. These visas have been historically used extensively by Indians. The idea is to protect American jobs and federal agencies must complete an internal audit and assess whether they are in compliance.

Recently, the Tennessee Valley Authority had announced that would outsource 20% of its technology jobs to foreign countries to save costs. Now, that would not be possible as the action would have put 200 skilled US workers out of jobs. Trump has constantly remonstrated that H1-B visas were a route for foreign companies to take away American jobs by undercutting on price.
