New York, Jan 11 : US President Donald Trump said Friday that he will change the H1-B visa system for professionals .
Trump tweeted,”H1-B holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship. We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S.”
Indians are the biggest beneficiaries of the temporary H1-B visas, 76 percent of which went to professionals from India last year.
Trump’s tweet came the morning after his visit to the US-Mexico border on Thursday to promote his plan for building the wall to prevent illegal immigration, crime and drug-smuggling.
The border wall or barrier is opposed by Democrats, who have refused to allocate funds for it in the budget.
