U.S. Alert – Trump signs new Executive Order to Buy American and Hire American

President Trump has directed DOL, DOJ, DHS, and DOS to review the current laws governing the H-1B program and to suggest changes to prioritize the most skilled and highest paid positions.   The executive order will have no immediate impact on the H-1B program.  However, the recent USCIS, DOL, and DOJ announcements provide insight to employers of the government’s focus on the H-1B program, possible changes to the H-1B program, and the need to make sure H-1B employers comply with government regulations.
