President #Trump derails #SiliconValley’s H-1B visa scam

The fears escalated for Harpreet Singh Kohli under the glow of a TV screen last year, when his daughter broke down at the sight of the words strung across the screen: “TRUMP WINS 2016 ELECTION.”

“This is not good for our country,” his daughter, then 8, cried. Even at her young age, she knew she was a U.S. citizen — and her father was not. “This is not good for you.”

One year later, as Kohli sits with his family in a sprawling Sikh temple in San Jose as he does nearly every Sunday, he worries his daughter may have been right. For the thousands of foreigners like him who hold an H-1B visa, it has been a dizzying year of anti-immigrant rhetoric, memos and executive orders from an administration that is seeking to stem the flow of foreigners coming into the country.
