    The new move announced yesterday through a seven-page policy empowers the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to issue H-1B visas to an employee only for the period for which he/she has work at a third-party worksite.

    The latest policy memorandum is a part of President Donald Trump's 'Buy American and Hire American Executive Order' and the directive to protect the interests of US workers, the USCIS said.
    As such the issuing of H-1B visas could be of less than three years. This would reverse the tradition of issuing the H-1B visas for three years at a time.

    Effective immediately, the new guidance comes weeks ahead of the beginning of the H-1B visas filing season, which is expected to be April 2, for the fiscal year 2019 beginning October 1, 2018.

    The guidance says in order for an H-1B petition involving a third-party worksite to be approved, the petitioner must show by a preponderance of evidence that the beneficiary will be employed in a speciality occupation and the employer will maintain an employer-employee relationship with the beneficiary for the duration of the requested validity period.

    And I'm going to need to see that in action.

    I hate it when people post from their tablets, especially nearly blind people. :))

    One thing can be said about Trump, is he is actually doing what he promise. No matter how many people (especially on the far left) do not like it.

    The hope here is that we train more US citizens to take these jobs instead of outsourcing it to other countries, so we can use them as slave labor.

    I intentionally made it big hoping it was easier to read for some folks. We have people that are trained. They just don't want to pay them. I need to see that in action. There re far more players involved in this than Trump. They truly don't give a damn.
