The Trump administration has ramped up scrutiny of the H-1B visa program.




US Citizenship and Immigration Services data released Friday show the agency is rejecting more H-1B applications.




Over the last two years, the agency has more than doubled the instances in which it asks for additional supporting information.




Some companies are seeing a substantial portion of their applicants rejected, while tech giants like Facebook and Apple have a near-perfect approval rate.



President Donald Trump's administration has ramped up scrutiny of visas for foreign skilled workers, rejecting more H-1B requests and requiring extra evidence to process thousands of applications, according to government data released Friday.
In the fourth-quarter of 2018, US Citizenship and Immigration Services issued requests for evidence in 60% of H-1B applications submitted by companies on behalf of their employees, up from 46% in 2017 and 28% in 2016, according to a report from the agency.
The agency has more than doubled the instances in which it asks for additional supporting information over the last two years – it made 26,799 such requests in the last quarter of 2016, compared with more than 60,000 in last quarter of 2018.
