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.

PM Narendra Modi discussed 'spirit' of H1B visas with Donald Trump: Sushma Swaraj NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi discussed the "spirit" of H1B visa with President Donald Trump during their recent meeting and made him agree on crucial contribution of the Indian skilled professionals to the US economy, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today. Answering questions in the Rajya Sabha over H1B visa restrictions imposed by the US, Swaraj said Trump has admitted that the contribution of the Indian professionals was benefitting both the countries and " .. interests, then it will in turn affect them (US)." Talking about the meeting between Modi and Trump last month in Washington, she said, "without using the word H1B, there was extensive discussion" on the "spirit" behind such visas. "I take pride is saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi successfully convinced Trump to admit that Indian skilled professionals have a big contribution in strengthening the US economy," she told the House where Modi was present. http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-and-nation/pm-narendra-modi-discussed-spirit-of-h1b-visas-with-donald-trump-sushma-swaraj/articleshow/59685866.cms

H1-B visa: India touch with US on the issue, says government New Delhi: India remains closely engaged with the US on issues related to the mobility of Indian skilled professionals, including the H1B visa programme, the government on Thursday said, amid fears of a change in policy under the Trump administration. In a written response to a question in the Rajya Sabha, minister of state for external affairs V.K. Singh said the US Congress has six bills relating to H1B and L1 visa programmes. “The bills seek to amend the various provisions related to the grant of H1 and L1 visas. However, so far none of these bills have been passed and no comprehensive policy changes have been made,” Singh said. The introduction of these bills in the US Congress has raised concerns, especially in the Indian IT sector, which takes a chunk of these H1 B visas. The minister assured that the government remains closely engaged with the US Congress and the US administration on this issue. Singh added that India attaches highest priority to safety and security of the Indian diaspora abroad, including in the US, and remains engaged with the authorities. In response to another question, Singh informed that India has signed Social Security Agreements (SSAs) with 18 countries. “Employees covered under the various SSAs are issued a Certificate of Coverage (CoC) by Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) which exempts them from making social security contribution in the foreign country concerned,” he said.

The key procedural difference between H-1B and O-1 visa is that for H-1B visa the employer has to file an LCA (labor certification application) before filing I-129 whereas for O-1 visa the employer does not have to file an LCA. Technically O-1 visa holders do not compete directly with US labor, at least in spirit of our immigration laws.......however Senator Chuck Grassley's assertion is that Indian IT Outsourcing CEOs of TCS/Infosys/HCL/Wipro/Tech Mahindra/Cognizant and other NASSCOM companies are diverting H-1B applicants who failed to obtain H-1B visa to apply for O-1 visa which is a Fraud as per US Immigration Laws. .......Same goes for Visa Fraud in which these CEOs are sending Indians to US on B1-B2 to replace American workers.......and as such these NASSCOM CEOs/executives perpetuating fraudulent practices must be put behind bars at the first opportunity. Moreover NASSCOM companies involved in such fraudulent activities must be blacklisted and banned from applying for H-1B to set an example...........Go Senator Chuck Grassley......Go AG Jeff Sessions.........Go Republicans........Kick bad practices of Obama administration.........Stop abuse of all non-immigrant Visa programs........God Bless America!
