It may be a while before President Donald Trump gets another chance at creating a new, "merit-based" immigration system, a keystone of his four-part plan that Congress rejected last month.About 85,000 visas are issued annually in a lottery system.In 2016, two technology workers sued Disney, alleging 250 U.S. employees were laid off and many were forced to train replacements who were hired on H1B visas.Fereirra added that 92.5 percent of the visas are still approved, only 2 percentage points lower than under the Obama administration in 2016 .The administration also stopped an Obama administration program that was about to start last year to provide visas to let international entrepreneurs who start companies in the United States live in the country for renewable, 30-month stints.The administration also indicated it will roll back the STEM OPT program expanded by then-President Barack Obama that lets international science and technology students work legally in the U.S. for up to three years.The department estimates 710,000 immigrant visa applicants and 14 million nonimmigrant visa applicants will be affected annually.Negi noted he understands Trump's stated goals of protecting U.S. workers but says he's going about it incorrectly.
