The administration is saying that this will help reduce the back log of visas pending.
Advocates of the program say it brings skilled workers that the U.S. needs, but critics say there are many problems.
More From the Daily Caller:
The stated purpose of the H-1b program is to allow companies to temporarily import high-skilled workers when they can’t find American workers willing or able to do the job, but critics contend its true purpose is to help big businesses cut costs by importing less expensive workers. In the past several years, Disney, Southern California Edison, Fossil Group and others have together fired hundreds of American tech workers and forced them to train their foreign replacements, many of whom were flown in specifically to take their jobs.
