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.

According to a Pew Research Study, America's middle class is dwindling. "Pew observed that the decline in the middle class is associated with an overall increase in inequality in the US, which could lead to somewhat dire consequences for American society. Pew also noted that the drop in the percentage of households that fall in the middle coincides with an overall decline in incomes. The report pointed out that in the time period covered, real median household incomes in the US as a whole fell by 8%. 203 out of the 229 metropolitan areas analyzed had a decline in the percentage of their populations that fell in that middle-income range." source: http://www.businessinsider.com/pew-research-center-middle-class-report-2016-5?utm_source=microsoft&utm_medium=referral : Globalization is not our friend.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-22/pelosi-schiff-slam-white-house-surrogate-nunes-act-diversion-desperation Hang These U.S. Politicians with their own sagging t!ts, and then throw the carcasses to their Foreign terrorist friends "Someone in the press should ask Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) why she requested and got the highest level of security clearance for the four Pakistani nationals known as the Awan brothers. I think maybe they were the ones who did the Trump surveillance work. Just before they burgled 20 of the 31 Democrats they had worked for and fled back to Lahore to see their ISI father. And also ask Debbie W S why she asked her to make that request which I'm pretty sure originated with Swillary anyway. If the Democrats******stains keep pushing this Russia hack BS, eventually people won't be able to ignore George Webb's team anymore."

There is reform to H1B after 6month.Ban Guest worker program.H1B will be allowed in private organization.Non - us citizen should not allowed in Government project,Banking,Trade and Insurance domain.The rule going to be 80% American and 20% non - American. No more GC and Citizenship.Only get GC and citizenship by publishing your work to couple of university and Let Student review it and grade it.Who get higher grade will get the GC.The GC will take 10years and citizenship will take another 10years.Any corporation violate the 20% quota will be fined one Billion.When you apply for H1B ,you need to take civil exam/communication exam.For H1B visa fee should to increase to $15000.00 and raise the salary for 150K.So that corporation won't treat as a Slave.All H1B candidate are treated as Educated Slave.

I wonder why our American education system can not produce the future citizens that can provide the labor-force of future. We have capabilities to predict what type of skills will be needed in next 5 years or 10 years, but we are unable to update our curriculum to meet those objectives. Credit goes to Unions who don't have merit-based employment to provide more profitable environments for corporations. Credit also goes to American system which thrives to provide these opportunities and helping other nations but its own society and forgetting its own citizens. Just like oil based revenue to middle-east was enabling terrorists and now US is self-sufficient in oil production thereby terrorists are having hard times with funds. Similar way, when you hire h1 people, they send all money back to their countries and thriving their native economies rather than putting into US economy. Also international imbalanced economies of scale adds to the equilibrium of foreign labor force. There are lots of fraud taking place. I am an naturalized citizen and know what frauds are played by Indians here in US.

Santaclara, your brother has a gift. He can help but his talent will never be given away to anyone he trains. God bless him. I wouldn't do it. Especially if I was talented. Don't train foreigners. Take a pay cut and move on. It is much more satisfying and profitable. Imagine the higher paid technologies you could be earning with much more sophisticated and intellectual and intelligent people instead of spoon feeding an infant in babyland. AND IT SOUNDS REALLY REALLY BORING.P

Absolutely this is absurd and never the intention of the first bill. HB1 is horrible for American workers and like the refugees and illegal aliens should be stopped. 100% Stopped no refugees- NONE! Build the wall and for once stop protecting illegals and refugees and not the American people. It disgusts me this should have to be told to someone supposedly put in government to protect America, its values and the people.

Start talking about employment exclusively and unexclusively for American Stem workers. Build computer skills and degrees for Americans. IGNORE IGNORE IGNORE h1b and they will go away. There are American consulting companies out there. There are American STEMs working. American STEM has to build bonds with American STEM. THINK POSITIVE and PARASITES will disappear.
