Today, president Trump’s new Nonimmigrant Proclamation extended the duration of the bar on immigrant visas through December 31, 2020 (with potential extensions thereafter) and created a new bar for those seeking to enter the U.S. in the following nonimmigrant visa categories: H-1B (specialty occupation), H-2B (temporary workers), L (intracompany transferees), and J (exchange visitors).
The new Nonimmigrant Proclamation will go into effect at 12:01 A.M. eastern daylight time on June 24, 2020 and be in force through December 31, 2020, with the potential for extensions thereafter....

Finally!! Trump Helps US Citizen IT Workers
It's taken him three years to get there, and it may only be temporary, but Trump has shut off H-1B visas.
The Big Tech outfits: IBM, Apple, H-P, Microsoft (et.al.) and the Big User outfits (Kohl's is one, so is West Bend Mutual, the State of Wisconsin, and GE Medical) were importing H-1B labor to write simple maintenance code or create simple systems--but they wrote their requests for imported cheap labor to make it seem that NO ONE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH COULD DO THIS EXCEPT AN INDIAN.
And the damn fools in Government believed that crap, too.
Anyhow, it's over, for the time being. Have an IT degree? Maybe you'll be able to use it soon, right here in the USA.
