The Trump administration is weighing a proposal to suspend a slate of employment-based immigration visas, including the coveted H-1B high-skilled visa, according to administration officials familiar with the talks, among several possible measures amid the economic fallout of the pandemic.

This is obviously for the election but a great idea nonetheless. In times of large output gaps, allowing foreign workers into your economy is unnecessarily damaging to workers and wages.

I don’t agree with Trump on much but this is good.
