SENATORS PUSHING FOR MORE VISAS

SENATORS PUSHING FOR MORE VISAS

March 8, 2019
A bipartisan group of senators, lead by Sen. Angus King and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, are attempting to raise the cap for certain work visas. Recent changes by the Trump Administration has caused fewer H-1B and other work visas to be approved, and many companies, particularly IT companies, are feeling the impact of this. With domestic unemployment hitting historic lows, the need for skilled foreign workers is growing. Maine in particular needs skilled workers to help with their tourism-based economy, hence the sense of urgency from the Senators to raise the cap.
This comes at a time when several IT firms are suing the Immigration agencies for discrimination, claiming that the current administration is actively attempting to prevent legal immigration and treating some foreign based IT firms unfairly in the lottery process, with claims that the government is actively looking or reasons to deny visa applications.

参议员们正在试图争取更多的签证
由缅因州参议院安格斯和柯林斯领导的一群参议员正试图提高某些工作签证的限额。 川普政府最近的政策变化导致H-1B和其他工作签证申请的通过数量减少,许多公司,尤其是科技领域的中小型企业,都受到了影响。 随着美国本土的失业率达到历史新低,对于外国技术人才的需求与日俱增。以旅游业为基础的缅因州尤其需要外国技术人才的帮助。因此参议院们急切地想要提高工作签证的限额。
目前,许多科技公司都在状告移民局歧视,他们称白宫政府在尝试阻拦合法移民进入美国,这在最近的抽签结果中可以体现出来(不了解的同学可以参考我们上一篇文章)。这些科技公司认为,政府千方百计地在寻找可以否决各种签证的理由。
