Indian Lawmakers Demand Trump Reverse H-1B Crackdown
Ahead of a meeting between with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, lawmakers are demanding President Donald Trump drop his executive order calling for a legal review of the H-1B visa.
In April, Trump’s signed an executive order targeting abuse by U.S. companies, Breitbart Texas reported, calling for the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Labor Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to conduct a “full legal analysis” of all the problems negatively impacting American workers in the H-1B visa system.
As Trump and Modi are expected to meet in Washington, D.C., India’s top lawmakers want the H-1B legal review dropped entirely.
India Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma requested Modi tell Trump to “reverse” his H-1B crackdown.
