The court struck down because of the H-1B visa rules brought by Good News Trump to Indian techies!

U.S. federal court overturns H-1B visa rules introduced during former President Donald Trump's administration. Former President Trump made changes to visa rules last year to replace low-wage foreign workers with Americans. Regulations were brought in to hire Americans for high-paying jobs in the lottery system. However, IT companies have objected that the provision will make it harder to hire talented foreigners and foreign students.

Several petitioners, including the Chamber of Commerce, have argued that Trump's decision violates the Immigration and Nationality Act. In December last year, a U.S. district court suspended those regulations. Recently, a federal court ruled that the rules were invalid. Given these rules, the Minister in charge of Homeland Security was illegally appointed, so those rules were ruled invalid. Clarified that the rules prohibiting H-1B visas are invalid.

Trump has made changes to visa regulations to benefit locals. He announced at the time that his visa policy would become more transparent and that competition with foreigners and locals for jobs here would be reduced. H-1B visas allow American companies to hire foreign workers, especially technicians. Every year, thousands of US tech companies hire large numbers of employees from India and China.

Of the 85,000 H1B visas issued annually, about 50,000 are for Chinese and Indian nationals. If the rules brought by Trump are implemented, the techies of both countries will be severely affected. The United States issues H-1B visas only to professionals in areas such as IT, engineering, science, and medicine. Companies in the United States issue H-1B visas as work visas. Thousands of techies who went to the US from India are employed on H-1B visas.

Preference will be given to first-time applicants for H-1B visas. These are issued by lottery. The government of Joe Biden recently decided to continue the traditional lottery system for the issuance of these visas.In the past, Trump has called for an end to the policy.

H-1B visa holders will be able to work in the United States from October 1. It issues 65,000 H-1B visas to foreigners each year. They only need to complete the H-1B cap application. Also, another 20,000 H-B visas will be issued under the MasterCap (Higher Qualifications, Skills).
