    Trump buries H-1B visa applicants in paperwork • The Register

    President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to restrict use of the visas, which he claimed are used to import workers who are paid less than locals and therefore make it harder for US citizens to get a job. Trump was also uncomfortable with outsourcers' use of the visa, saying they displaced American workers. Labour hire agencies also sought the visa, bringing in people and then finding them jobs after they arrived.

    The USA's recently cracked down on employers who use the visa, with more inspections to make sure they're not being abused.

    Now a new Policy Memorandum (PDF), released late last week, revealed the Trump Administration's plans to make H-1B visas harder to obtain by requiring extensive documentation about exactly what workers will do, why they're needed and where they will work.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    Like most other things until we leave the EU, we probably aren't allowed to - "EU rules, don'cha know"

    Like most of your responses relating to the EU, you're wrong.

    We could limit work visas to non-EU citizens very easily, but the government doesn't want to do that currently, possibly because it can convince some of voters that the EU that is forcing the UK to allow all foreigners in without checking.

    Let them (and the UK for that matter) practice protectionism whilst the rest of the world moves on. History is replete with examples of why it is doomed to fail.

    China and India have massive protectionist programs and they work very well for them. The EU runs a lot as does America already, most of them against the EU.

    Sounds like a good plan. Tory MP's can write heated articles in the Daily Express, blame the EU regardless of whether they have anything to do with it or not and then waste businesses time and government resources filling out unnecessary paperwork, rather than simply changing the quotas.
    I'm alright Jack
