Donald Trumps New H-1B Order is a Blow to Indian Professionals:- USA President Donald Trump signed an executive order preventing the federal agencies from contracting or sub-contracting foreign workers and this is a huge blow for Indian IT professionals for all those who are on H-1B visa hiring. On June 23rd, Donald Trump and his administration suspended H-1B visas along with other work visas till the end of this year and the new move comes after five weeks after the announcement. Most of the Indian IT professionals are dependent on H-1B visas that allow the USA companies to employ foreign workers in their required expertise.

The technology and IT companies have been hiring professionals from India and China every year for their projects. "Today I am signing an executive order to ensure that the federal government lives by a very simple rule, higher American" told Donald Trump. He told the reporters before signing the orders against the hiring of H-1B visa holders. Donald Trump said that the government of USA will not tolerate firing American hardworking people in the pursuit of cheap foreign labor. He says that the American workers cannot be replaced. Trump's order follows the federally-owned Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) announcement. This would outsource 20% of the technology jobs that are based in foreign countries.
