The White House is considering eliminating or restricting the use of the J-1 visa internship/trainee program, as well as the J-1 summer work travel, au pair and camp counselor programs (but not the other J programs), according to a Wall Street Journal article published Sunday.
Why it matters: The internship/trainee programs are used by many U.S. firms to bring in foreign personnel. In 2016, more than 15,000 people entered the U.S. through these programs – 5,903 J-1 interns were employed in California alone.
