According to the foreign website TheStreet reports, in Trump issued an executive order to prohibit part of the Muslim countries, refugees and immigrants into the United States, the executive orders for skilled workers may soon be introduced. Unlike Trump's immigration prohibition, restrictions on H-1B visas will not lead to moral conflict, but Apple, Amazon, Alphabe, Microsoft and other technology companies will suffer. The technology industry relies heavily on H-1B visas to recruit programmers and other technical staff.
Advocates to relax restrictions on the H-1Bs groups are FWD.us, the lobby of the supporters, including Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Netflix founder and CEO Reed & Hiddins, the AOL chief Tim & middot; Armstrong, and other outstanding technology people. FWD.us says skilled workers are able to develop the US economy, and each H-1B visa granted by the government can generate about two jobs.
According to the US Department of Labor data, in 2016, the Government provided 85,000 copies of H-1B visas, received 618,266 applications. Deloitte Consulting, Cognizant Technologies, Infosys, Wipro and other consulting and outsourcing companies to submit the most applications, Apple ranked the top ten, submitted a total of more than 23,000 applications.
Last year, Harvard University professor Ron Mullot compiled a list of employees hired by H-1B visas in 2014.
In addition to large outsourcing companies, IBM has nearly 1,500 copies of H-1B recruitment, ranked seventh in the list. Some big-name technology companies fell out of ten, of which Amazon ranked 11th in 2014, a total of 877 H-1B recruitment.
Computer Sciences, Microsoft, Alphabet, Intel and Apple ranked No. 12, 14, 15, 16 and 20, respectively, 873,850,728,700 and 443 H-1B recruitment.
