The order requires all central agencies to complete an internal audit and assess whether they are falling in line with the requirement. As a result, the Department of Labour is all set to checking guidelines to stop H-1B employers from shifting H-1B workers to other employers’ job sites to relocate American workers.

According to the officials in White House, the President’s actions will help fight employers’ misuse of H-1B visas. These were never meant to replace qualified local workers with low-priced foreign labour.

Trump said he would favour a merit-based system that brings in skilled people that would create jobs in the US and not take responsibilities of the locals.
