Moscow, February 27 — “Conduct. Economy,” Donald trump has never approved a work visa H-1B for educated workers in demand occupations, which often became the subject of his attacks during the debate in the presidential primaries of 2016.
After winning the election and the signing of the Executive order trump the “Hire American” visa has attracted more attention.
Now it’s starting to show in numbers. Since his victory the number of approved work visas H1-B decreased, and the number of contested government have tripled, according to Service, citizenship and US immigration services (USCIS).

According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the most common requests for additional evidence from USCIS: is it possible to qualify this work as a “special occupation”; whether the applicant’s work last full period of employment, as specified in the application; the nature of the relationship of the applicant with the company.
Given that a favorite target of the administration of tramp — Silicon valley, tech giants also touched upon the process associated with a working visa H1-B.
