Here’s more proof that Trump’s H-1B crackdown is only helping Canada

The Donald Trump administration’s crackdown on the H-1B visa is hurting the US. Nearly half the American employers surveyed recently said the primary reason they were creating high-skilled jobs in other countries was their inability to secure work authorisation in the US. This is “proof that restrictive aspects of the American immigration system are creating opportunities in other countries,” said Chicago-based immigration law firm Envoy Global, which polled 433 human resources professionals and hiring managers across a variety of industries and company sizes in November 2019 for this survey.
