Unemployment is on the rise in the United States due to the impact of the lockdown. In such a situation, the Trump administration wants to stop issuing work visas for the time being. At the same time, visas for students will be stopped.

President Donald Trump's immigration advisers have been working on the issue, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. They will reach a decision within this month. As far as is concerned, this visa will be stopped for the time being.

The agency said the unemployment rate in the United States rose to 14.6 percent in April. This rate is the highest in the history of the country. In this situation, the Trump administration is going to change its foreign policy for the people of the country. Last month, President Donald Trump issued a directive stating that no immigration to the United States would be effective for at least two months at this time.

Citizens of other countries are issued H-1B-like visas for work in the United States. These visas can give employees from different countries the opportunity to work for US companies. At the moment there are about 500k people with this visa in the United States.

A White House official said the government's main goal at the moment was to get the country's economy back on track. For that, first of all, the people of this country must be provided with jobs. And that is possible only when the number of people coming from outside for work decreases. All companies will be informed to give job opportunities to domestic workers.
