WSJ: trump is exploring the idea of ending the visa support cultural exchanges
NEW YORK, August 28. /TASS/. The administration of the President of the United States Donald trump is considering the termination of a number of cultural exchange programmes with other countries and to this end may be limitations in the visa regime.
This was reported in the Sunday newspaper The Wall Street Journal, citing its own sources.

In particular, we are talking about a tourist visa, giving a temporary right to work in the United States and provide more than 100 thousand foreign students every summer. Similar visa support is provided to young citizens of other States, which combine education and care of children in American families. Alternatively, foreigners can get interns in summer camps or trainees, clarifies the issue.
Dubbed by The Wall Street Journal plans comply with the presidential decree issued by trump in April. This document provides a review of US legislation on immigration in order to ensure compliance with the interests primarily of American citizens. As says the publication, foreigners are often abused program of cultural exchanges, breaking deadlines stay on the territory of the country. And the number of persons having the above mentioned visas is so great that could impact negatively on the employment market of the United States.
The state Department refused to comment on the information of the newspaper, by forwarding it to the White house. “At the moment we continue to implement programs to visas J-1 at the same level as in recent years,” said The Wall Street Journal in the foreign Ministry.
