‘Buy American, Hire American’ order

‘Buy American, Hire American’ is an executive order passed by the US administration under Donald Trump in 2017. The move was aimed at increasing employment rates and wages of the American workers and also to protect the economic interests of the USA. It is largely seen as a protectionist move that resulted in increase in H-1B visa denials and RFEs (request for evidence) in visa lottery. The order has been rolled back by the Biden administration.
