Trump Seeks Tweak of H-1B Rules, Policies

White House, Apr. 17, 2017, Background Briefing on Buy American, Hire American Executive Order - "[T]his executive order will call for the strict enforcement of all laws governing entry into the United States of labor from abroad for the stated purpose of creating higher wages and higher employment rates for workers in the United States.  And the executive order will further call on the Departments of Labor, Justice, Homeland Security and State to take prompt action to crack down on fraud and abuse -- which should both be understood as separate problems -- in our immigration system in order to protect workers in the United States and their economic conditions."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Fact-checkers will need to aggressively pursue the sources of the numbers in this briefing and in the EO.
