Leaders from across U.S. technology industry are condemning new restrictions on employment-based visas imposed by President Donald Trump this week.

Tech employers say they use work visas to recruit employees for specialized roles when the U.S. talent pool runs dry. Leaders at Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Tesla, YouTube, Apple, Twitter, Salesforce, and other tech companies issued statements criticizing the executive order within a few hours.

“Now is not the time to cut our nation off from the world’s talent or create uncertainty and anxiety,” said Microsoft President Brad Smith in推文。“移民在我们公司发挥着至关重要的作用,并支持我们国家的关键基础设施。当我们最需要它们时,他们会在这个国家贡献。“

科技公司在2020年禁止的几个签证类别中依赖于2020年,以试图将职位转移到美国工人从大流行引起的经济衰退中转移。特朗普表示,在H-1B,L和某些J签证上暂时暂停暂停,将迫使公司雇用劳动的美国人。

“Under ordinary circumstances, properly administered temporary worker programs can provide benefits to the economy,” Trump said in the执行订单。“But under the extraordinary circumstances of the economic contraction resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, certain nonimmigrant visa programs authorizing such employment pose an unusual threat to the employment of American workers.”

特朗普最新的举措扩展了4月行政命令暂时阻止绿卡授权,并增加了额外的就业签证类别。但总统试图遏制法律移民的美国,美国预测大流行,导致技术产业中的一些人怀疑执行命令的动机。

“The Trump administration has been ratcheting up work visa restrictions from the beginning, when unemployment was low,” said Doug Rand, co-founder of the Seattle startup无边无际的移民和一位前奥巴马白宫官员。“大流行只是一个继续追求大多数美国人反对的极端议程的借口。”
