New York sources reported that the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said on Friday that the proposed changes would be “introducing a more meritorious selection of beneficiaries” and “help ensure that H-1B visas are awarded to the most-skilled or highest-paid petition beneficiaries” under President Donald Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” executive order.



Accordingly H1-Bs is non-immigrant work visas given to professionals and those with special skills. Meanwhile the DHS said the US Immigration and Customs Service (USCIS), which manages immigration, would reverse the current order in which the applicants for H1-B visas are first selected through a lottery for those visas meant for workers with Masters’s and PhD degrees from US universities and then for those open to all.

Moreover when explaining the changes, an immigration expert, Doug Rand, said that under the current lottery process, the USCIS randomly selects 20,000 from among advanced degree-holders and then puts the remainder into the larger pool and randomly picks the other 65,000. Reportedly Rand said that the proposed changes do not impact H-4 visa work permits for spouses of H-1B workers or redefine “specialty occupations” as those fall under two separate regulations that will likely be proposed in the coming months.
