WASHINGTON (TIP): Indian Americans today welcomed the Trump Administration‘s
 decision of not blocking extensions to H-1B visas, saying the 
“devastating” move would have caused “unprecedented” brain to drain and 
hurt American businesses.

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services had yesterday said it was
 not considering any proposal that would force H-1B visa holders to 
leave the country.

The announcement came days after reports emerged that the Trump 
administration was considering tightening H-1B visa rules that could 
lead to deportation of 7,50,000 Indians.

“I welcome the decision by the US Citizenship and Immigration Service to allow H1-B
 visa holders to continue to apply for visa extensions while awaiting 
their green cards,” Indian-American Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi 

“While we must continue to invest in developing the skills of our 
domestic workforce, this decision avoids hurting American businesses and
 workers, while keeping families together in the process,” he said in a 

Krishnamoorthi said when a proposal to terminate H1-B extensions 
arose from within the Trump administration, his office and others 
opposed it because it would have hurt American businesses, American 
workers and the American economy, as well as tear apart families.

“In short, that proposal was un-American. I am glad that the Trump administration listened to us and others,” he said.

Suhag Shukla, Hindu American Foundation (HAF)
 executive director and Legal Counsel, said, “the results would’ve been 
devastating. Devastating to these law abiding, tax paying workers and 
their families who have made America their home. Devastating for America
 by causing an unprecedented brain drain of skilled workers and 
potential entrepreneurs.”

He said soon after US President Donald Trump
 began raking up the       H-1B visa issue, the HAF lobbied and asked 
members of the Congress to ensure they voice their concern with the 


“We’re grateful for the swift response by Representatives Tulsi Gabbard
 and Kevin Yoder in expressing to the administration the detrimental 
impact the proposed changes would have on the American economy and 
credibility, US-India relations, and families of skilled workers,” Shukla said.

“It is a welcome relief for hundreds of thousands in our community,” he said.
