BSA | The Software Alliance, an industry trade group, said it “strongly urges the administration to consider the vital role nonimmigrants play in the U.S. economy and refrain from restricting employment of highly-skilled foreign professionals.” BSA members include Microsoft and Oracle as well as security firms such as Trend Micro and Splunk.
