Black college students could benefit from Trump's worker visa order
President Donald Trump signed an order Tuesday requiring tougher enforcement of rules governing the hiring of foreign workers in the United States and a tightening of the requirement that US government agencies use American-made products.
The technology industry relies heavily on the H-1B visa program to bring in engineering talent from overseas, and executives say they simply can not hire enough American workers to fill jobs at their companies.
The new executive order also directed federal agencies to review current procurement requirements and step up the effort to limit government purchase to US -made goods.
CNN reported that though the H1-B visa program is created to bring skilled workers in certain fields to the United States, the Trump administration contends that employers have abused the program to hire workers who will work for cheaper pay than American citizens. Trump also seeks changes in government procurement that would boost purchases of American products in federal contracts, with one aim being to help US steelmakers.
Mr Trump will direct the departments of State, Justice, Homeland Security and Labour to propose reforms to the scheme, which allows American employers to bring foreign workers to fill USA jobs.
Senator Chuck Grassley, an author of legislation to reform the H-1B and L-1 skilled work visa programmes, said it is time to take action against the abuse of H-1B visa system.
Meanwhile, Trump's visit to Kenosha brought hundreds of protestors, who gathered outside of Snap-on to demand that he releases his tax returns and criticised some of his policies, including a plan to build a wall on the border with Mexico.

American jobs need to be protected and this executive order seems like a good step.
Trump's election campaign had been marred by his disparaging remarks against minorities in the US, including a call to ban all Muslims from coming to America as well as stopping Mexican migrants by building a long wall along the US-Mexico border. But those workers are hired using the H-2B visa for temporary non-agricultural workers.
As he nears the 100-day benchmark of his presidency, Trump has no major legislative achievements to tout but has used executive orders to seek regulatory changes to help the US economy.
The new order asks agencies to propose ideas to direct visas - which are now distributed by lottery - to the most skilled and highly paid applicants. "It's America first, you better believe it". The program is used to bring highly skilled foreign workers to the United States. Department of Homeland Security officials said they will require that programmers applying for these visas provide evidence the work they're doing is highly specialized and complex. "We are going to make big changes or get rid of NAFTA once and for all", Trump said.
Going to a more merit-based H-1B system could attract more people with advanced science and technology skills, Mr Atkinson said in a statement.
In recent years, the USA has been overwhelmed by applications for the programme.
"The H-1B visa program is commonly discussed as being for when employers have a labor shortage", said Daniel Costa, director of immigration law and policy research at the Economic Policy Institute.
