President Trump's Executive Orders and CFGI Summaries


President Trump has issued the following executive orders related to immigration as of April 18, 2017:

In addition to these executive orders, additional draft executive orders have been leaked related to immigration. These are draft executive orders that could be changed.

  • Protecting American Jobs and Workers by Strengthening the Integrity of Foreign Worker Visa Programs
    See the CFGI Summary. This order would significantly impact employers should it be made final and issued, but is unlikely to be issued now that the "Buy American and Hire American" order has been issued. However, many items in the order are likely to remain administration priorities and could be acted upon even without an executive order. The order instructs agencies to undertake a variety of actions including investigations, as well as to propose regulations, enforcement activities and reporting that would bring changes for B-1s, H-1Bs, L-1s, OPT, J-1 summer work travel, E-2s, green cards and more.
