President Biden has frozen for 60 days last-minute rules from the Trump administration that would allow only higher-wage foreign workers to be employed in the United States. Under a DHS final rule issued January 8, only the highest-paid applicants to the H-1B visa program would be selected. The DHS rule was scheduled to go into effect March 9. Another rule issued on January 14 by DOL would significantly increase H-1B holders’ minimum wages. The DOL rule was scheduled to go into effect March 15. It remains to be seen whether the Biden administration will push to rescind the recent rules after the 60-day freeze. AILA and the American Immigration Council oppose the wage-prioritization rule, noting in regulatory comments that salary does not equate with value or “fully capture an individual’s contribution to society.”
