Ease green card backlogs for highly skilled employment based immigrants

Messages Sent So Far
One needs to only take a look at the visa bulletins published in the USCIS web-site every month to get an idea of how slow the process is for immigrants in the 'Highly skilled' category from India, China, Philippines and Mexico. For example, applications from the year 2001 are currently being processed today (10 years later) for the EB3 employment based category from India. And the actual time people get the green card may well be 3-4 years later.<br />
This means that these thousands of people have been facing great hardship and constraints in their career. It has in effect stifled innovation in the country to an extent, because these highly skilled people had a great potential to open up new ventures, create new jobs, advance science and technology and contribute to society in numerous other ways<br />
A hidden cost is also that the spouses of these highly skilled people also often have advanced degrees and Phd's, but they are prevented from joining the workforce because of the restrictive nature of the work visas.<br />
Today the country could do with thousands of new start-ups, medical facilities, nurses, teachers and college professors. Also, the housing market could benefit from this section of people, because once they settle down in their lives they will be able to buy houses.<br />
The sword of uncertainty must be removed from their heads NOW if they are expected to stay here, and if the country is to attract more skilled and bright people.<br />
Today the immigration debate has been hijacked by low-skilled and illegal immigrants, numbering in millions, because, for these few thousands there is no political voice backing them up. In the interest of fairness and true justice they need to be taken care of so that they can join you in the fight for maintaining the ideals and traditions of this great country that is America<br />

If these immigrants are such a gold mine, why aren't they remaining in their own country and benefiting India? The US is the third most populous country in the world. We have workers HERE, if they need training, then train them. The US is overpopulated , which has been devastating to our environment.

Congress - don't be stupid. Please do your job. It's time to remove this racist employment immigration policy. This is about capitalism, not the effin diversity visa program. Please do the needful and remove the per country caps.

Don't blame our country for laws and rights. We follow all the laws and have all the rights. We have no issues with our laws. If you are genuine, there is no nepotism, favoritism or corruption in this country.................................................. Get this straight in your heads. Now lets see who is not following the laws. Here are list of few fraud cases can't list all, as this is endless list. When we created these rules, we didn't consider how people will use the loopholes and take advantage of our system. America is a LAND of LAWS.................................................... http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/07/20/san-jose-businesswoman-pleads-guilty-to-h1-b-visa-fraud/.... http://indianexpress.com/article/india/indian-origin-woman-pleads-guilty-in-h1b-visa-fraud-scheme/.... https://www.americanbazaaronline.com/2017/08/10/indian-american-entrepreneur-rohit-saksena-sentenced-h-1b-visa-fraud/.... https://www.americanbazaaronline.com/2017/08/10/indian-american-entrepreneur-rohit-saksena-sentenced-h-1b-visa-fraud/.............................................. Now lets talk about why American's are losing their jobs and rights of immigrants............................... 1. Indian managers are inefficient, they don't know how to negotiate, have no management skills, have no knowledge of processes or project management, don't know how to deliver the projects within the budget (i.e. 35-40 work hour week). The only way they can manage the projects is ask the people to work till midnight, work over the weekends, ask them to work like slaves. American's knows "they have only one life", they know what they want in life, they refuse to work on these terms, so they are let go, as these Indian managers know there is pool of cheap indentured H1B immigrants available in the market. Slavery of INDIANS BY INDIANS. ...... Why don't you refuse to work more than 40 hours, this is labor law. Are you afraid to loose your jobs, American's are losing their jobs too, but they don't accept slavery. Why don't you create a petition to all the H1B immigrants to send a letter to your employer No working more than 40 hours. Ask for overtime pay. Laws and rights are there you have to know how to respect yourself. If you don't respect yourself, why anyone else will respect you. Employers are taking care of their benefits you take care of your rights. Don't be beggars, if you think you have the skills be the leaders. Only one life, living a life of respect is much better than living a life of uncertainty and slavery .................... ............................................................ 2. Another issue with working cheap and as slaves. Companies budget their spending on money, not on number of headcounts. If they can afford 4-5 Americans on $1M budget. They can afford 15-20 H1bs on same budget. They are ready to work overtime and over the weekends. So company gets more work hours within the same budget. This is causing 4-5 times more number of visas. Which is your problem. Take care of your problems, all the laws and rules are there. This is not an immigrant visa, this is work visa. Even if you get immigration, your work problems will still remain with you. American's don't hire based on skin color, but you do. You surround yourself with people from your country, hometowns or who speak your language. There are no problems in our System, the problem is within you, probably the way you are raised. No one is taking advantage of you, you are asking employers to take advantage of you. Respect yourself, only then others will respect you.

Any reason why congress would not vote to change this broken system. The number of H1Bs is increasing year over year but what happens to the existing H1B's . The bucket has grown to over 150,000 now and still no respite. Pls do something.....

Please grant GC to all residents who are waiting in queue. They all are maintaining legal status, paying taxes, contributing to US economy, and their kids have adopted US culture.
