Trump targets tech's H-1B visa hiring tool

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2017/01/30/trump-targets-techs-h1b-visa-hiring-tool/97240588/

SAN FRANCISCO President Trump's relationship with Silicon Valley has always been volatile at best, but it seems things soon may get even more contentious.

Administration officials have drafted a new executive order aimed at overhauling, among other things, the H-1B work-visa program that technology companies have long relied on to bring top foreign engineering talent to their U.S.-based locations.

In his news briefing Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the possible executive order on work visas "is part of a larger immigration effort" and stems from "an overall need to look at all of these measures."

The order, which has yet to come into effect, arrives on the heels of Friday's controversial immigration ban targeting seven majority-Muslim countries that sparked protests at airports around the country over the weekend.


Who will they screw next?

1. What about the H-2B visa program?

The one he uses to staff Mar-a-largo.

I have a theory he'll get those visas yanked right before he has to pay the staff.

2. They'll find a way to screw everyone eventually

probably to avoid paying his staff. He's already screwed over contractors and other workers.
