Trump made it clear that this order declares that American projects should be made with American goods.

A majority of them work in the tech sector - some for US firms, others for Indian outsourcing companies such as Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys, who provide services for huge swathes of corporate America.
To that end, the order added, the departments of state, justice, labour and homeland security (of which the US Citizenship and Immigration Services that runs the H-1B programmes is a part) will propose new rules and guidelines to protect American workers from "fraud and abuse".
President Trump has moved towards his first major breakthrough in changing legislative policy by signing an executive order which targets highly-skilled workers in the United States.

R Chandrasekhar, President, Nasscom said H1- Visa issue is a very small one in the whole immigration debate in the United States and it is not the only issue that drives the Indian IT industry.
So will this executive worker help American workers and products? Right now, it doesn't do a thing for you and me.
