Washington - President Donald Trump on Friday said he is planning changes to H-1B visas, which are issued temporarily to highly educated immigrants so they can work in specialty occupations, that would create simplicity, certainty and a possibility that the workers could become U.S. citizens.

“H1-B [sic] holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship. We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S.,” Trump said in an early morning tweet.

Trump, a Republican, and Democrats in the U.S. Congress are at an impasse, as refuses to end the longest shutdown in federal government history until he secures $5.6 billion to build a wall along the country’s southern border.

While Trump typically depicts undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers attempting to enter the country through Mexico as criminals and terrorists, he frequently praises those applying for H-1Bs, who must hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. Competition is tough for the temporary visas. In 2018, the United States hit the limit on the number of H-1Bs it could issue, 65,000, by the first week of April, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

So many Jewish IT professionals lost their jobs to H1B, and now many don't bother going into IT. There should be a drastic reduction in the number of H1B visas.

She is getting kind of old for him, being his oldest of the 3 wives. I expect he'll trade her in soon for a younger model.

The president has certain rights that you don't have. Got it?

No one is saying that he is the king but common sense tells you that a president of the greatest country in the world should be able to bring in his wife , shver and shviger to this country sooner than you.

It's basic respect

Your advice reminds me of what Hamon said to the king about Vashti.
