Over dinner, CEOs press Trump on immigration
[link to www.cnn.com (secure)]

Berkeley Heights, New Jersey (CNN)American corporate titans used a collegial dinner with President Donald Trump on Tuesday to press him on to ease immigration restrictions, according to multiple attendees.

And at least during the dinner, it seemed like their coaxing had an effect. After several of the CEOs urged Trump to make it easier to allow "talented" individuals from other countries to come work at their companies in the US, the President said he would consider taking action to assuage their concerns via executive order.
But reached the next morning about the President's comments, a White House official said "no imminent action" is planned to address the CEOs concerns, though the official noted "the President has been clear that he wants a merit-based immigration system to allow the best and the brightest from around the world to immigrate to this country."

Trump has said he wants to move the US toward a merit-based immigration system that would allow more high-skilled immigrants to move to the US, but his administration has also taken actions to restrict immigration and tighten requirements, including among that high-skilled population. High-skilled workers applying for H1-B visas saw petition denials and requests for evidence increase last year, for example, following a Trump administration policy change, according to a recent study by the National Foundation for American Policy.
The episode, which attendees said proceeded in a friendly manner during a private question-and-answer portion of the dinner, came toward the end of an evening marked by lively discussion of the US economy and the President's views on trade.

lol a company recruiter contacted me today for a job. She quoted $160/hr for the 'Machine Learning Expert' job. If Trump hadn't restricted the immigration, the rate for this role would have been $50-$60/hr for a h1b worker.
