President-elect Donald Trump on Monday sent out the strongest signal yet that the H-1B visa program is going get real scrutiny once he takes office.
Trump listed five executive actions he plans to take on his first day in office. It includes asking the Department of Labor to investigate “all abuses of the visa programs that undercut the American worker.”
Trump did not get into details and didn’t specifically mention the H-1B visa, but his intent is clear. During the campaign, he was critical of the H-1B visa program and invited displaced IT workers from Disney to speak at his rallies. He said the visa is being used to undercut workers.
