Because you should get ready to face some ridiculously stupid questions no one has ever asked you till now. The US President Donald Trump’s administration has designed a new questionnaire for all the US Visa Applicants that may discourage students from coming to the United States of America.

Applicants should also provide past email addresses and 15 years’ worth of biographical information. The Formulated new rules would feature some very irrelevant questions and may cause harm to individual’s personal space. Here are examples of Some of the Visa questions you might face.

New US Visa Questions Applicants might face

  • Who is paying for the ticket?
  • Your travel history for the past 15 years?
  • What countries have you visited in the recent 10-15 years?
  • What jobs have you done till now?
  • Are you on Social Media?
  • What websites you visit the most?
  • What stuff do you post frequently?
  • Whom have you sent emails?
  • Whom did you contact on the phone?

The above are some of the irrelevant questions the visa people might ask you in the visa interview. To stay away from terrorism and to prevent terrorists from entering their land, America made strict processes to get the visa. These new visa rules will get implemented in the up coming months.

Us Visa officials in the new checking block will shoot some questions at the passengers. The government is stating that the rules should be harsh to prevent any terrorist attack in the country. Almost 65000 of people will have to face these questions per year.

The questions will make them find what countries did they passenger visited and if he/she has ties with some terrorist countries or not. So from now on the visa officials will start showing nation, political, caste, religion and gender partiality in this process. The passengers might have to state where they are intended to go. An official report said that they might even ask their social media accounts and passwords too.

New H-1B Visa Guidelines to go hard on Computer Programmers applying for Work Visa

USA H1b Visa

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services agency issued new H-1B visa guidelines for companies to bring foreign technology workers. These new guidelines for H-1B visa require additional information about computer programmers applying for the work visa. Essentially, this requires the companies to prove the jobs are complicated and need more advanced knowledge and experience.

The new policy comes into effect immediately and will change the way how companies apply for the visas. This move directly results in the share drop of outsourcing firms which have faced the most criticism. Shares of Infosys, Wipro, Accenture, and Cognizant Technology Solutions have been slipped more than 1 percent by Monday afternoon.

“The Justice Department will not tolerate employers misusing the H-1B visa process to discriminate against US workers. US workers should not be placed in a disfavored status, and the department is wholeheartedly committed to investigating and vigorously prosecuting these claims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Tom Wheeler of the Civil Rights Division in a statement.

It seems that the focus would be on employers with the largest percent of H-1B visas. As the lottery for the fiscal year 2018 opened on Monday, it prohibits employers from discriminating against US workers

President Trump Accuses News Media of Being ‘Out of Control’

Trump Slams Media

US President Donald Trump launched an extraordinary condemnation of his critics, complaining he inherited a “mess” and slamming media reports that his campaign was constantly in contact with Russia as “fake news”.

Trump held a news conference on Thursday that lasted an hour and 15 minutes, where he displayed a sense of anger and grievance rarely vented by a President in public, CNN reported.

“I have never seen more dishonest media, frankly than the political media,” Trump said, later slamming leaks to the press from the intelligence community some of which led to the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“The leaks are real. The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.”

Trump was repeatedly pressed on whether his campaign staff had been in contact with Russia, as a widening drama over his alleged connections with Moscow dominates news coverage.

“Nobody that I know of. How many times do I have to answer this question? Russia is a ruse. I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven’t made a phone call to Russia in years,” Trump said.

“I own nothing in Russia, I have no loans in Russia, I don’t have any deals in Russia,” Trump said. “Russia is fake news“.

The President went on to say: I’m here again to take my message straight to the people. As you know, our administration inherited many problems across government and across the economy. To be honest, I inherited a mess. It’s a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.”

Trump in fact predicted how this “animated and unorthodox” news conference will be interpreted in the press. “Tomorrow (Friday), they will say: ‘Donald Trump rants and raves at the press’,” Trump said. “I’m not ranting and raving. I’m just telling you. You know, you’re dishonest people. But… but I’m not ranting and raving. I love this. I’m having a good time doing it.”

The news conference was not scheduled until Thursday morning, but aides said Trump was “itching to get out and defend himself”. A senior administration official told CNN that Trump walked into the Oval Office on Thursday morning and said: “Let’s do a press conference today”.

The news conference was “the President’s idea, 100 per cent”, the official said. “I’m here today to update the American people on the incredible progress that has been made in the last four weeks since my inauguration,” Trump continued addressing the conference, after quickly announcing his new pick for labour secretary, Alexander Acosta.

“We have made incredible progress. I don’t think there’s ever been a president elected who in this short period of time has done what we’ve done,” Trump said.

And saying he resented picking up newspapers and turning on the television to hear reports that his White House was in chaos, Trump said, “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine“. He complained much of what was reported about his administration was unfair, but said: “I don’t mind a bad story if it’s true”.

He also lashed out at a coverage of his temporary travel ban on nationals of seven mostly Muslim nations that caused a weekend of chaos at the nation’s airports before being suspended by a federal court.

“We had a very smooth roll out of the travel ban. But we had a bad court,” Trump said, adding “We had a bad decision, that is the only thing that is wrong with the travel ban.” But the President also said a new executive order would be tailored to the court’s ruling to ensure that it could legally go into force.

Trump, Trudeau Express Unity on Trade, But Divisions on Immigration

Justin Trudeau

US President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday expressed their willingness to work together and build “bridges” to improve bilateral trade, at the same time that they made clear their deep differences on immigration and accepting refugees.

The two leaders held their first bilateral meeting since Trump took office on January 20 and afterwards offered a joint press conference at the White House, albeit one at which few details were provided regarding how and on what they will cooperate in the coming months.

Trump did say in response to a question about his promise to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed by the US, Canada and Mexico more than 20 years ago, that US trade with Canada is “outstanding” and that “we’re going to work together to make it even better”.

“We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We’ll be tweaking it. We’ll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries. It’s a much less severe situation than what’s taking place on the southern border,”  Trump quoted.

In the case of Mexico, the President said that “on the southern border, for many, many years, the transaction was not fair to the United States.”

“We’re going to work with Mexico, we’re going to make it a fair deal for both parties,” added Trump, emphasizing that “we’re going to get that worked out. We’re going to make it fair, but so that everybody is happy.”

In Canada, both conservatives and liberals feel that NAFTA, implemented in 1994, has been a key element in their country’s economic well-being by enhancing trade between Ottawa and Washington to the point where they are now the world’s two top trade partners.

At the press conference, Trudeau emphasized that “millions of good, middle-class jobs on both sides of the border depend on this crucial partnership.”

The potential renegotiation of NAFTA “is a real concern for many Canadians because we know that our economy is very dependent on our bonds, our relationship with the United States,” Trudeau said.

On the other hand, Trudeau made clear that he is not going to “lecture” Trump about immigration and security policies, but he also said that Canada will “continue to pursue our policies of openness towards immigration, refugees, without compromising security.”

The premier said that Canada has taken in more than 40,000 Syrian refugees without compromising national security, a situation that stands in contrast to Trump’s recent immigration and travel ban, now temporarily blocked by a federal appeals court.

That executive order suspends for 120 days the entry of refugees into the US and for 90 days the issuing of visas to citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations with histories of terrorism.

In justifying that measure, Trump said on Monday that “we cannot let the wrong people in, and I will not allow that to happen during this administration,” adding that he is being “praised” for his immigration stance.

Both leaders emphasized the long-standing friendly ties between the US and Canada, and Trudeau stated that the two nations will continue to enjoy the “effective integration” of their two economies.

The West should “finally realise the combat against terrorism does not tolerate double standards or hidden agendas, and that inter-governmental cooperation must involve lawful authorities of a country where the anti-terror operation is conducted”, Syromolotov said.

According to him, the world needs a broad coalition to fight international terrorism, in accordance with the UN Charter, international rights protection and decisions of the UN Security Council.

He said that during this fight some countries were supporting terrorists, thinking wrongly that they can control them.

The minister stressed that despite the existing differences, Russia and the US remain natural allies in matters of counter-terrorism, and it was in the interests of both countries to enhance and strengthen this partnership.
