Will Trump's Immigration Audits Help U.S. Workers?

12.5.16

In the article, "Will Trump's Immigration Audits Help U.S. Workers?," featured in Bloomberg BNA, Partner David Jones provided insight into Trump's immigration plans and the impact on U.S. workers.

Trump is planning on directing the Labor Department to investigate visa program abuse.

DOL investigations are "all about the wages," David told Bloomberg BNA. In other words, are employers paying foreign workers what the law requires.

This is particularly true in the context of H-1B visas, temporary visas for skilled foreign workers that are popular in the tech industry. The H-1B program requires employers to attest that they’re paying the required wage and that hiring a foreign worker won’t adversely affect U.S. workers’ wages, Jones said.
