The Biden administration indicated that it has still not decided on ending the Trump-era ban on issuing new H-1B visas. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has asserted that its top priority is the acute needs of individuals fleeing persecution.
Earlier in January, former US President Donald Trump had extended the ban on issuing new H-1B visas till March 31 arguing that the country is facing a very high unemployment rate. After commencing office, Biden has revoked dozens of the executive orders of Trump. However, the one that imposed a ban on issuing H-1B has still not been lifted and it will expire on March 31, if Biden does not issue a fresh proclamation.
