By Not Giving H-1B Visa To Indians, US Will Shoot Itself In The Foot, Lose Tech Dominance

Immigration experts believe there could be a sharp decline in the number of H-1B petitions filed by Indian IT services companies this year on the back of the tough environment created by the US administration under president Donald Trump.

Four of six high-profile US tech companies – Amazon (2,515), Microsoft (1,479), Intel (1,230), and Google (1,213) – were among the top 10 employers for approved H-1B petitions for initial employment in FY 2017.

The trend reflects the strong demand for high-skilled talent in the US economy.
