US set to tighten work norms for international students
NEW DELHI: The Trump administration is set to tighten norms from next year for optional practical training (OPT), a programme used by international students to work in the US for one year after completing their degree course. Students from the science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) stream can opt for a two-year extension, which gives them a cumulative three-year work experience under OPT.
The pendulum seems to have swung in favour of antiimmigration groups, who hold that OPT students provide cheap labour and take away American jobs. The fall agenda of the US go nment rolled out recently states: “US Immigration and Customs Enforcement will amend existing regulations and revise practical training options available to non-immigrant students on F and M visas.”
F-visa is for those undertaking academic studies (working towards a degree), whereas M-visa is issued to vocational training students.
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement is the governing agency for the optional practical training (OPT) programme. “The forthcoming proposal, which has an anticipated publication date of August 2020, is expected to seek restrictions on the OPT currently available to international students,” says Mitchell Wexler, partner at Fragomen, a global immigration law firm.

Students come to US on loans. They should be allowed to work. American citizens are not even interested in STEM jobs. Leave alone their qualification.

Many hard working students in India are deprived of their chances by the reservation policy. So they seek opportunities to work for USA, CANADA, UK, AUSTRALIA, GULF etc. if the reservation policy is scrapped, then many would like to work for the mother country. It is perhaps a sin to be born in India for those so called “upper caste middle class” people.

The biggest mistakes Indians make in USA is to wave Indian flags in their political rallies. If they cannot be loyal to USA, they should return to India. India has many Bangladeshi citizens. Ever saw a Bangladeshi waiving a Bangla flag in India?

Loyalty is not a fixed quantity. Any human can be loyal to two countries. Just because they raise the India flag does not mean that they are not loyal to the US. Indians are not extremists. We know our place. A flag is just an indication that even though we are so far, we are still attached to our motherland.

Hummm. Trump is doing everything possible to keep US citizens happy. He is trying to create job for local public by doing such nasty things. But it is going to help him in case he decides to run for presidential election next year.
