Following is an excerpt:

The use of skilled guest workers may generally be a hot topic under the Trump administration, as he characterized the H-1B visa program as “very, very bad for workers” during one of the GOP debates. And it’s not outside the realm of possibility to think that the Trump administration might use the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to take on instances of “outsourcing” through the H-1B program, according to Groban.

“I would assume that the EEOC is not an agency that would fare well under the Trump administration, although I don’t know,” Groban said. “But it’s ironic that, if you wanted to challenge the issue of outsourcing ... on a grander scale, that you [could] probably use the EEOC to challenge it based on national origin or citizenship discrimination.”
