Any idea if this will impact current H1-B workers who might be up for renewals?

Perhaps. Depending on whether your credentials and background match with the current requirements. If you are in the entry level category, there could be additional questions asked. I haven’t heard anything negative so far in this front. So fingers crossed. Hopefully it won’t affect renewals.

I agree. Hope is really lost with this administration I guess.

Pretty much. Sad. :frowning:
