Cato Institute on Immigration
The children of H-1B workers suffer the most under this flawed system. Even though they are in a legal status, they are prohibited from working legally in the country that is their home. Worse still, even though they grew up in the United States, they become ineligible for their status once they reach the age of 21 as they are no longer a "minor" child of an H-1B, known as "aging out."
Even while delegating to the president broad powers to exclude immigrants, Congress expressly forbade banning immigrants based on their race or national origin. Pres. Trump will almost certainly run into legal difficulties if he attempts to carry out his promise.
For almost a decade, Congress debated creating an immigration system free from discrimination by nationality, country of birth, or country of residence. President-elect Trump, however, now proposes to discriminate unlawfully against certain foreign nationals on the basis of the same protected grounds without any legislation from Congress.
