The President wants to change the HB-1 Visa Lottery System to a Merit System. Trump has planned a new executive order entitled, "Buy American, Hire American," today in Wisconsin with two major provisions:
I. It directs the US Trade Representative and the Commerce Department to maximize content made in America and "minimize waivers and exceptions to Buy American laws" in trade with other countries.
II. It orders an overhaul of the H-1B high-skilled worker visa program, replacing the lottery of names with a merit-based system that prioritizes higher-paying jobs.
