The CEO's of Google, Amazon, Tesla and other tech giants are criticizing President Trump's decision to suspend H1B and L1 work visas. L1 visas allow firms to transfer staff from overseas offices and H1b Visas allow companies to hire highly skilled individuals from certain fields. The president argues that suspending those visas will help the U.S. recover from the economic damaged caused by the pandemic. The new restrictions on visas will go into effect on June 24th and remain in place for the rest of the year. Molly O'Toole, Immigration & Security Reporter for the Los Angeles Times, joined Cheddar to discuss.
