Public health experts worry social distancing norms will not be enforced there, as it has happened at recent public gatherings Trump has attended and addressed.

But there is time. Trump is known to have pulled back from the precipice before. Remember the Access Hollywood tapes of October 2016, with Trump bragging about forcing himself on women? Many in his campaign gave up. That was 2016’s “October Surprise”, a phrase used in US elections for unforeseen events that tend to turn around the race irreversibly because the affected candidate does not have enough time to recover. Trump survived it, as we all know. … [Read more...] about As Trump slides, Delhi should engage with Biden | Opinion
By Olivia Carville and Shelly Banjo Natasha Bhat learned in late February that her father-in-law had suddenly died. Bhat, 35, recently recalled how she grabbed a backpack and hustled her U.S.-born 4-year-old son to the San Francisco airport to catch a midnight flight to India, her home country. She didn’t anticipate being stuck there indefinitely. Bhat works at a tech company in Silicon Valley on an H-1B visa, and her documents were due for renewal. So she threw them in the bag, knowing she’d have to get the chore taken care of before flying back to the U.S. in a few weeks. But she said her mid-March appointment at the U.S. consulate in Kolkata was canceled when it shut down due to coronavirus concerns. Her return home was delayed further when President Trump signed an executive order last week barring many people on several types of visas, including H-1Bs, from entering the country until 2021. Donald Trump’s executive order is the latest step in his years-long … [Read more...] about Trump’s H-1B order leaves many US workers stuck in India
By Greg Siskind During the 2016 US presidential campaign, Donald Trump shocked the public when he suggested that he would ban Muslims from entering the US. The remark was widely condemned even by members of his own party. Within a week of his inauguration in January 2017, Trump announced a broad ban on the entry of people from a number of countries in the Middle East. He used an obscure provision on the Immigration and Nationality Act called 212(f) which allows the President to bar the entry of groups of immigrants deemed to be detrimental to the interests of the United States. In the summer of 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States narrowly upheld the President’s use of 212(f) saying the President was entitled to more deference in foreign policy and agreeing that the President had provided documentation justifying his use of the provision (Trump argued that the targeted countries were, among other things, not cooperating with the US in intelligence sharing). Once Trump … [Read more...] about Will Trump’s H-1B visa freeze really help American job seekers?
PUNE: The United States will consider more changes in the H-1B non-immigrant visa programme and restrict work authorisation for spouses of H-1B visa holders. This is according to the 2020 Spring Agenda released by the US administration under President Donald Trump. The Unified Agenda is a biannual regulatory one, providing a roadmap of planned federal rulemaking across various agencies. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to revise the definition of specialty occupation to focus more on getting the best and the brightest foreign nationals via the H-1B programme, and revise the definition of employment and employer-employee relationship to better protect US workers and wages, it said. Further, it proposes additional requirements to ensure that employers pay appropriate wages to H-1B visa holders. This proposal, which had been mentioned in earlier Unified Agendas as well, is currently at a proposed rulemaking stage and is likely to come up for discussion by year end. … [Read more...] about Trump Spring Agenda proposes changes in H-1B, H4 EAD and OPT programs
