NewsFlash! Trump to Issue Executive Order Targeting H1B Program

President Trump is expected to sign an executive order (EO) today that is being dubbed the “buy American, hire American” order. The ‘hire American’ portion of the EO aims to rein in the hiring of foreign national workers, especially via the H1B program. The EO will push executive agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the U.S. Department of State (DOS), to seek out ways to stop supposed “abuses” of the H1B program. So, while the EO will not directly make changes to the H1B program, it does pave the way for changes to be made in the coming months.
