Abolish H1B Visa program

Messages Sent So Far
H-1B program is flawed beyond repair. It should be abolished in favor of something smarter. Corporations have no place being immigration middle men. Immigration is about something much more pure and sacrosanct than corporate profits. It needs to be abolished in favor of permanent immigration as opposed to corporate sponsorship. Immigration should be limited to 5% of net job gains each year. In years when we have job loss, It should be restricted. Off course there will be more people would applying than we have openings for. Then acceptance should be based on first come first serve basis. The case is about economics and national interest, and has nothing to do with race. The reason H1B visa holders are so easily exploited is because of corporate sponsorship. Green cards in sustainable numbers would make them equal players in the labor market. An H-1B visa amounts to second class labor and corporate sponsorship gives companies leverage against American workers wages and salary. This hurts American workers directly and it hurts us as a nation indirectly.

H1B & INDIAN GREEN CARD with no Phd should be abolished & deported. if you have a Phd you can stay. If you are Indian Green Card and have not obtained from free company paid education to obtain a Phd, you should be deported. You do not belong here. You have no real interest in computers. U.S. wants more than a person who collects a paycheck. Indian H1b spouses should not be allowed a visa to work unless both he and she are Phd. The U.S.A. should be particular about who is allowed to work here. PUT AN END TO ALLOW ANYONE TO JUMP ON BANDWAGON AND HURT AMERICAN WORKERS. I AM A PROUD AMERICAN. I WANT TO PREVENT MY COUNTRY FROM BECOMING A JUNK FREE-FOR-ALL.

https://aeon.co/essays/this-is-what-slavery-looks-like-today-in-the-eyes-of-slavers "Around half of the world’s slaves are held in debt bondage in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Debt bondage is a very old form of slavery in which radically marginalised members of society, often from India’s ‘untouchable’ caste, must trade all their labour for single small infusions of cash. Broader social and economic systems ensure that they do not understand the terms of such loans, and that the time required to repay them is interminable. Lack of other work, lack of credit, and the need to pay for schooling and marriages effectively guarantee that there is no single contractual debt between the landlord and labourer but rather a string of interconnected informal loans." We do not need such people taking over America

http://mashable.com/2017/03/23/forbes-world-billionaires-list-india-ranks-fourth/?utm_cid=hp-r-2#0Ep0GyMkAkqH Why don't these Indian billionaires use their wealth to improve their own nation? Most likely because they all have their hands in the visa scams

Trump is going to lose his own supporters if he keeps stalling on H1-B, H-4 and other visas. Show some guts Trump and end them now, people are tired of waffling politicians and all the lies.
