Modi-Trump meeting: No discussion on H1B during talks between two leaders

H1B visa issue did not figure during the talks between Narendra Modi and Donald Trump

Washington: The H1B visa issue that was looming on the India-US relationship in the run up to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s maiden meeting with President Donald Trump did not figure in the talks between the two leaders.

With the Trump administration undertaking a review of the H1B visa, the most sought-after by Indian IT professionals, the issue had taken centre stage ahead of Modi’s US visit with the issue expected to figure prominently in bilateral discussions.

However, the H1B issue specifically did not figure in the talks with foreign secretary S. Jaishankar telling reporters that there was a lot of discussion with business leaders and the two leaders about the digital partnership when asked about whether H1B visa issue figured in the talks.

“There is recognition that the Indian-American community has played an extraordinary role in building this relationship. When you value something it is obvious that you will take care of what you value,” Jaishankar said.


They're both pro-business and anti-Muslim. Both claim to support infrastructure and create jobs without actually doing anything about it. And most important of all, both issue impulsive and idiotic policy decisions with no thought to the consequences or planning for the implementation. And they have deplorable supporters. They have a lot in common.

So why won't our big strong master negotiator business genius tell his counterpart it's time for our country to reform work visas like H1Bs to level the playing field for American workers? Hmmm.....
