Donald Trump To Suspend H-1B Visas Maid Unemployment:- Donald Trump, the President of USA is considering suspending a number of H-1B visas which are the most sought after Indian IT professionals. This move is taken after massive unemployment surrounded the USA due to the coronavirus pandemic as per the report in the media. The suspension could extend into the government's fiscal year that begins from October 1st. The news has been reported by the Wall Street Journal. This new rule will not allow any H-1B holder outside the USA to enter into the country for work till the suspension gets lifted.
