Trump admin to scrap computerised lottery system to select H-1B visas
The Trump administration has proposed a new rule that would end the H-1B visa applicants based on the computerised lottery system. Instead, they would be selected by taking their wages into consideration. The move was to restrict the entry of foreign nationals into the USA for jobs with less experience.
The decision of the Trump administration will impact IT professionals and international students. The new rule would eliminate the annual quota of 65,000 H-1B visas for foreigners and 20,000 visas for students with an advanced degree from a US university.
