Is it true that President Trump is about to issue an executive order to stop all H1B filings?


We have heard several rumors recently that the President will issue a proclamation as early as June 15th (or June 11th, according to other online sources) that would temporarily prevent foreign nationals from entering the U.S. in H1B, L-1, H2B, or J-1 status. According to the unconfirmed reports, this would only impact foreign nationals who are not currently in the United States, and some categories of foreign nationals (e.g., healthcare workers) would be exempt from the executive order. The rumors also indicate that the President will unveil several anti-immigrant regulations in July, targeting the H1B, H-4 EAD, and OPT programs.

Again, at this point, these are merely rumors. We have no other specific details. As soon as any concrete information is provided, we will post the details on MurthyDotCom. (09.Jun.2020)
