As the US presidential election approaches, the Donald Trump administration has made another crucial decision. The Trump administration has brought a proposal to abolish the current computerized lottery system for the issuance of H-1B visas. Notification to this effect was placed in the Federal Register. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said it would respond to the notification within 30 days.
The Trump administration, which has been imposing a number of stringent restrictions on the issuance of H-1B visas for some time to provide job security for Americans, is now also considering ending the lottery system. The Trump administration has said in the past that it will make the decision to provide job opportunities for locals as well as for skilled workers to stay in the country. The superpower has decided to abolish the lottery system and issue H-1B visas based on the maximum wage level.
Millions of applications for H-1B visas come in every year. Of these, 65,000 applications will be selected through a computer-based lottery system and visas will be issued. The Trump administration, however, argues that locals are not getting opportunities because American companies are hiring cheap foreign workers through this policy. That is why huge reforms are being carried out in the issuance of visas. If the new proposal to abolish the lottery system is approved, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will no longer issue H-1B visas based on the maximum wage level.
That is .. there will be a process of issuing visas to the highest paid and highly skilled employees. Officials say this will only allow talented people to come to the United States, and Americans will have job security. It is hoped that this will strengthen the country’s economy.
It is known that the Trump administration has already decided to temporarily ban the issuance of H-1B and L-1 visas until December 31. Recently, the lottery system was abolished and proposals were brought. We will have to wait and see how these decisions taken during the presidential election will come together for Trump ..!
