Protesters in Wisconsin urge Trump to release tax returns
It also directs the departments to propose reforms to ensure that H-1B visas are given only to the most-skilled or highest-paid applicants.
The H-1B work visa programme channels thousands of foreign workers to the USA technology industry, but has been criticised following high-profile examples of American workers being replaced by lower-paid foreigners.
Such a change could affect companies, such as Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, Cognizant Tech Solutions Corp and Infosys Ltd, that connect United States technology companies with thousands of foreign engineers and programmers.

The "hire American" element of the order will focus on preventing H-1B visa holders from "undercutting American labor at less cost", according to one senior official.
An HBCU is any black college or university established before 1964 with the principal mission of educating African-Americans, who were barred from attending majority-white schools in the pre-civil-rights era. And his businesses have hired foreign workers, including at his Palm Beach club Mar-a-Lago.
