H-1B visas, which are awarded on a lottery system, are capped at 85,000 nationwide.
In the upcoming executive order, Trump is expected to have the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that issues the H-1B visa, to further review their conditions for awarding.

Instead of a lottery, Trump wants to prioritize "the most skilled and highest paid applicants". "We'd actually support an evaluation and a review and reform of that", said Michael Schutzler of Washington Technology Industry Association, a trade group that represents 9,000 tech companies across the state.
The order also asks several leaders in the Trump administration to suggest reforms to the H-1B visa program.
The White House said the programme undercuts American workers by bringing in large numbers of cheaper foreign workers, which drives down USA wages. Critics say these undercut unemployed Americans and fill lower-level information technology jobs. Currently, the cap on H1-B visas stands at 65,000, out of which 25,000-35,000 are issued to Indian nationals.
The Reuters news agency examined U.S. Labor Department records and found that more than 15 percent of Facebook's employees in the United States in 2016 used a temporary work visa.
With the order, Trump is formally calling for the secretary of commerce and the USA trade representative to assess "the impacts of all US free trade agreements" as part of the new plan.
