Indian IT professionals, students in US could face tough times: Economic Times (India)

The Trump administration could make life more difficult for legal immigrants to the US who are on H-1B visas, a large chunk of which is used by the Indian information technology industry.

 The order, if signed into law, will also reverse the Optional Practical Training (OPT) extension for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) students that the earlier administration had mooted in late 2015.

OPT extensions allowed graduates with STEM degrees to stay in the US for as much as three years after graduating from college.

The new order will curtail that period, hurting the future plans of 165,918 Indian students in the US. Indians comprise the second largest ethnic group after the Chinese when it comes to international student enrolment in the US, according to the Institute of International Education.

If implemented, the executive order could seriously hit the movement of students and skilled employees from India to the US.

The H-1B visa programme, which allows highly skilled workers to travel to the US, has been a cornerstone of Indian IT's success for almost two decades now. As the future of the visa programme hangs in the balance, a person aware of the thinking of the Indian technology services companies said that they would want to get their hands on as many visas as possible before any long-term prohibitions set in.
