Trump administration announced Spring 2019 Agenda

June 6, 2019
_________________________________________________________________________
Trump administration announced Spring 2019 Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions.
On the list of this proposed agenda, several items may have a huge impact on the H-1B/H-4 visa holders and international students, including:
  • Revise the definition of specialty occupation to increase focus on obtaining the best and the brightest foreign nationals via the H-1B program, and revise the definition of employment and employer-employee relationship to better protect U.S. workers and wages.
  • DHS will propose additional requirements designed to ensure employers pay appropriate wages to H-1B visa holders.
  • Removing H-4 Dependent Spouses from the Class of Aliens Eligible for Employment Authorization.
  • Remove current regulation that USCIS must decide to grant or deny an asylum applicant’s application for employment authorization within 30 days.
  • Raise fees for the Student and Exchange Visitor Program.

在国土安全部的名单上有提案(尚未最终确定),其中包括:
  • 修改“专业职业”的定义,变成“通过H-1B计划雇用最好的外国人”,修改“就业”和“雇佣关系”的定义,以更好地保护美国工人和工资,并增加要求”确保雇主向H-1B签证持有人支付适当的工资“。
  • 取消H-1B配偶,即H-4签证持有人的就业资格
  • 撤销监管规定,规定移民局必须在30天内批准或拒绝庇护申请人的就业授权申请
  • 提高学生和交流访问者计划的费用
