Will the White House disappoint on H-1B displacements?

It’s taken far too long, but at least the White House has begun to notice the large number of IT workers being laid off in order to hire H-1B replacements. The only question is whether they will actually do anything about it or just punt to Congress.

Based on what the DHS Secretary (carefully) stated, it just may be that such uses are legal as the law is currently written which implies that only Congress can act at this point by changing the law to fit with its original intent. We’ll just have to wait and see.
