Presidential candidate Joe Biden from the Democratic Party in the US has said that if he wins the election in November, he will end the temporary suspension applied to H-1B visas most popular among Indian IT professionals. On June 23, the Trump administration suspended H-1B and other foreign work visas until the end of 2020.
The former vice president praised the contribution of H-1B visa holders to a digital town hall meeting organized by NBC News on Asian American and Pacific Islands People (AAPI) issues. Biden said President Trump terminated the H-1B visa for the rest of this year, but that would not happen in my administration.
He said that ‘people on company visas have built this country’. He called Trump’s immigration policies cruel. Describing India as a ‘natural partner’, Biden also said that if he wins the elections, he will strengthen relations with India and that will be my top priority.
