Trump gutting H-1B visa programme: South Asian advocacy group

South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT) also said in a statement that the Trump administration's recent court motion to revoke the "hard-fought" employment authorization for some H-4 visa holders was very disturbing.

"Both policies run contrary to core American values of respect for work and the right to participate in the workforce," SAALT said, a day after Trump signed the executive order directing an interagency review of the H-1B visa program.

"We reject the premise that US-born and foreign workers should be pitted against each other to 'ensure the integrity' of the immigration system and serve the national interest," SAALT said.

The group said Trump's executive order will continue to increase immigration enforcement presence by encouraging immigration raids at businesses and other places of employment, "further underscoring this administration's commitment to criminalizing immigrants".

SAALT said it is "disturbed" by efforts of the current administration "to profile, ban, and deport community members by leveraging the full power of every federal agency, including the Department of Justice".
