TechNet Statement on Federal Court Ruling on Trump Administration's Executive Order on Worker Visas
Washington, D.C. – TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore made the following statement regarding a California federal judge’s ruling in a preliminary injunction that the administration exceeded its authority in issuing an executive order halting the issuance of nonimmigrant work visas. TechNet joined the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Retail Federation, and Intrax in filing suit in federal court to oppose the administration's order.
“TechNet is pleased with the court's ruling. As we continue working to strengthen our domestic STEM talent pipeline and empower the workforce of tomorrow, we must ensure that visa programs remain in place to fill critical high-skilled labor shortages. Any policy or order that hinders American companies' ability to find high-skilled workers only harms our economic recovery at this critical time."
