In the House of Representatives, the lawmaker group of the United States of America reintroduced the legislation for eliminating such a program that permits foreign students to stay in the nation after their study is completed. The Fairness for High Skilled Americans Act which is legislation was introduced. This legislation would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act on the OPT which is Optional Practical Training.

The bill was introduced by Congressmen Paul A Gosar, Andy Biggs, Matt Gaetz, and Mo Brooks. Gosar said that OPT reflects that there is a complete abandonment of the workers who natively belong to the United States.”

Paul A Gosar also added that “the OPT elimination is also good for the economy. The foreign workers working in America are exempted from the payroll taxes. This makes them 10-15% cheaper than the American worker working in the nation.”

Kevin Lynn who is the founder of the US tech workers also commented that “OPT must be eliminated as it creates hurdles for the Americans to land their first job after college. This is because the universities crowd out the opportunities of the American students to the foreign students.”
