As we’ve been anticipating these past few weeks, President Trump has put a ban on H1B visas and work visas like the H-4 visa until at least the end of this year. What might this mean for you?
If you are someone who is seeking to work in the United States through the H1B visa, H-4 visa, the L visa and/or the J visa, you will not be able to obtain said visas due to the ban. Likewise, there has been a ban on applying for Green Cards until the end of the year as well. This blocks hundreds of thousands of people from working in the United States from other countries.
Nonetheless, if you are in the United States already and you already have a Green card or a visa, there is nothing to worry about. This ban does not take away your right to live in the United States.
The implications of this ban economically will likely be astronomical, as all of the fortune 500 companies have declared outrage as a response to the ban. Many of their employees are foreign workers who have done a great deal to make these companies great. Such a lack of workers is bound to diminish the productivity of these companies, and in turn, hamper the economy until the ban is lifted.
