Restrictions (High-Skill Work Visa Restrictions) on immigration have been increasing in the United States for decades. In particular, they have ramped up during the Trump administration. And even more, in particular, they have ramped up during the COVID-19 crisis.
Trump’s words often do not match his actions. When it comes to his immigration policy, this is no different. During his campaign and throughout his many rallies, he promoted the notion of legal immigration. Now, however, such promotion is clearly questionable.
Along with the already existing trend of limiting immigration as a result of COVID-19 –both legal and illegal– the Trump administration is reportedly gearing up to restrict the visas of high-skilled immigrants heavily. New H1B visas will potentially be blocked, and L-1 visas will be as well.
Likewise, those who are in other countries who hold these visas will be heavily restricted from entering the United States.
“Preventing businesses from transferring their highly talented workers into the U.S., even temporarily, will limit their ability to do critical scientific research, build new product lines, generate economic growth, and create new jobs,” said Jon Baselice, executive director for immigration policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, in an interview.
In essence, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the reaction of the Trump administration is all encompassing restrictions on immigration. Not just in the movement of individuals in and out of the country but also in individuals who have already gone through the strenuous process of obtaining visas.
The result of this? High-skilled workers are incapable of doing their life’s work. Foreign businesses are losing interest in doing business in the United States. All in all, it was a losing situation for all involved.
