Is the US going to limit H-1B visas for Indians to 15%?

“Continuing on the ongoing trade tension between the US and India, the US government has said that it is planning to curb the distribution of the H-1B visa to Indians. The H-1B visa is one of the most popular ones for foreigners visiting the US for business or trade purpose. The move seems to have been triggered after the Indian government enforced stringent laws for data localisation for all companies based out of foreign countries”.
