A federal judge in San Francisco last week blocked the Trump administration from enforcing its ban against many of the biggest U.S. companies bringing in foreign workers under H-1B and other visas. TechNet, one of four business and trade organizations that brought the suit, said Tuesday’s announcement flouted the court’s ruling.

“Changing the requirements around H-1B and other work visas will only hurt American companies that depend on high-skilled workers who fill critical positions while we work to grow our domestic [science, technology, engineering and math] pipeline,” said Linda Moore, TechNet’s president and chief executive officer.
