What's The Impact Of Proposed Changes To H-1B Visas?

The Trump administration has taken a mostly hardline approach on immigration policy. And even as negotiations continue on what will happen to DACA recipients, the administration recently announced a policy on the H-1B visa that would make it more difficult to obtain extensions.

The H-1B program is focused on highly-skilled workers that U.S. companies bring in on a temporary basis. What impact could that change have? And does it align with other immigration policies?

Here to talk about that is Shannon Gleeson, associate professor of labor relations, law and history at Cornell University.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
