President Trump’s Latest Executive Order Will Be Life-Changing

Technology companies may be facing some personnel problems based on President Donald Trump's next move to tighten immigration. The companies are known to hire much of their labor forces from overseas, and commonly arrange work visas for foreign workers in the U.S. President Trump's cabinet is currently drafting new executive actions that would push companies to hire Americans first. If such an order is signed, it could change the standard business model for many megacompanies.

The proposal being drafted by the Trump administration is aimed at, as the president promised, putting America first. “Our country’s immigration policies should be designed and implemented to serve, first and foremost, the U.S. national interest,” read one early draft, according to Bloomberg. “Visa programs for foreign workers … should be administered in a manner that protects the civil rights of American workers and current lawful residents, and that prioritizes the protection of American workers -- our forgotten working people -- and the jobs they hold.”

Large technology-based companies took to seeking employees overseas when they couldn't find enough qualified American candidates. The positions initially needed were in the fields of science, engineering and math. Unfortunately, some companies began to abuse the system and snubbed American workers in favor of cheap labor overseas.

“Immigrant STEM workers have contributed an outsize share to founding new companies, getting patents, and helping build up American companies, which in turn because of their success have created tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of jobs,” says labor market researcher Gary Burtless from Brookings Institution. “Discouraging such people to apply for visas to enter the United States to work -- I can’t imagine how that can be considered to be in the American national interest.”

While Silicon Valley companies like Microsoft, Apple and Google wait, the president hasn’t commented on the new proposal. Nothing has been signed as of yet, and it’s possible the initial draft revealed by Bloomberg might change.
