Last month, the Indian IT professionals in the US got a big shock of their lives after the Trump administration suspended the H-1B visas along with other types of foreign work visas until the end of 2020. This movie was taken up to protect American workers at a time when the world is under crisis. 

According to PTI news agency, Biden, who recently attended a digital town hall meeting on Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) praised the contribution of H-1B visa holders. While responding to questions on the concerned issue, he said: “He (US President Donald Trump) just ended H-1B visas the rest of this year. That will not be in my administration. The people on the company visa have built this country."

"On day one, I’m going to send the legislative immigration reform bill to Congress to provide a roadmap to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants who contribute so much to this country, including 1.7 million from the AAPI community. My immigration policy is built around keeping families together, modernising an immigration system by keeping families, unification and diversity as pillars of our immigration system, which it used to be,” Biden added. 

The former vice president also alleged that Trump’s immigration policies are cruel and humane; he also stated that he will take immediate action to protect dreamers, including more than 100,000 eligible dreamers from East and South Asia.

Highlitening about the H-1B visa- it is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers that require theoretical or technical expertise. Through this visa, technology companies hire thousands of employees each year from countries like India and China.

Biden is currently challenging the 74-year-old Republican President Trump in the November 3 presidential elections.
