Trump has stopped the issuance of work visas in the United States
In a situation of record unemployment, Donald Trump stopped issuing several types of American work visas until the end of the year. Green card issuance restrictions have also been extended.
US President Donald Trump on Monday, June 22, signed a decree to stop until the end of the year the issuance of certain types of work visas.
In particular, we are talking about the type of visas H1-B, which is intended for the limited-time work of highly qualified specialists such as scientists and engineers. In addition, restrictions will apply to the type L-1, which is applied when transferring employees of companies working in other countries to the USA. As well as type H-2B - for seasonal workers who work most often in the field of landscape planning and the hotel business. The majority of J visas issued to participants in cultural and professional exchange programs will also be banned.
The reason for this measure was increased unemployment in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic, exceeding 13 percent. According to representatives of the White House, these restrictions will save for Americans about half a million jobs.
In addition, Trump until the end of the year extended restrictions on the arrival of the United States through the green card program.
