Google CEO Sundar Pichai was among the first to condemn the order, noting that it impacted nearly 200 employees, risking stranding some abroad.
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky offered free housing to anyone displaced by the ban, while Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said in a Facebook post that it was "time to link arms together to protect American values of freedom and opportunity."This new executive order, which was first reported by Bloomberg, takes aim at both H-1B visas, which are capped at 65,000 a year and are set aside for so-called "specialty positions," as well as visas used for temporary agricultural workers, summer student workers and intracompany transfers. The order is aimed at ensuring that "officials administer our laws in a manner that prioritizes the interests of American workers and — to the maximum degree possible — the jobs, wages and well-being of those workers," according to a copy of the document provided to USA TODAY.

SAN FRANCISCO — President Trump's relationship with Silicon Valley has always been volatile at best, but it seems things soon may get even more contentious.
Administration officials have drafted a new executive order aimed at overhauling, among other things, the H-1B work-visa program that technology companies have long relied on to bring top foreign engineering talent to their U. In his news briefing Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the possible executive order on work visas "is part of a larger immigration effort" and stems from "an overall need to look at all of these measures."The order, which has yet to come into effect, arrives on the heels of Friday's controversial immigration ban targeting seven majority-Muslim countries that sparked protests at airports around the country over the weekend.
This executive order would "create a similar chaos to the travel ban," says Sam Adair, an immigration lawyer at Graham Adair."It would be incredibly disruptive to what is a natural part of the recruitment process" for the tech industry, universities, hospitals and biotech, he says.
The CEOs of Microsoft, Apple, Netflix, Uber, Airbnb and Tesla Motors noted the policy was affecting their own employees working here legally, and would jeopardize their competitive quest for talent.Since the end of the recession, the pay disparity between fully employed men and women, those with advanced degrees and even those holding tech jobs, has grown wider, according to census data.“Not seeing many people that look like you, having that added element of discomfort, makes it difficult to enter the industry,” Vogt said.A computer technician or computer support specialist helps information technology workers and ordinary (non-technical) workers solve problems with their computers.They also maintain, upgrade and troubleshoot networks, Internet systems and computers.
