More and more H1B-Visa holders continue to show up in my IT area as citizen workers are laid off every couple of years. 60+ people let go in April 2015.

We need to boycott all businesses (i.e IBM, Cognizant, InfoSys, Tata and their clients) that abuse H-1B visa and do note vote for any politician that supports them. Stop asking the politician the same lame questions, ask them if they support the H1-B visa program. The reason corporations request H-1B visa is not for the lack skills in the US, but rather lack of US citizens with real experience to work for the low pay. Anyone you talk to that has dealt with these workers will tell you 90% are worthless even with the low cost and much of their work needs to be redone by US citizen.

Stop selling out the US to greedy corporations trying to drive down labor wages by hiring H1B employees. Studies have shown there is no shortage of qualified applicants in the US, there is no need to important millions of Indians to do the job. More immigration means more environmental destruction - you'd think the government would learn from the California drought problem.

With over 25 years of IT experience, I have seen the abuse of the H1B program expanded over the years. I have witnessed numerous US citizens laid off in favor of cheaper foreign contractors.

Actually most of the students from India who are coming to USA to pursue MS/MBA are from tire-2,tire-3 or below level colleges/university with bachelors degree because they do not get any Campus placement job in their college or off-campus.The USA media hypes them as high skilled ones.Thats a big joke.You see most of the IITians,premier institutes of India graduates do not come to USA in general bcause they are able to get placed in MNC cmpanies in Indian campuses with hefty starting pay scale like in Microsoft Google Amazon etc...All TCS INFOSYS WIPRO HCL employees,whom US media sees them as HIGH SKILLED workers are from tire-2&3 colleges with their starting pay being 300,000INR($4728) per annum.This is the fact.They do mundane outsourced jobs in India at lesser pay,get 9-10 years experiance in those companies and get to USA as so hyped(by USA media) HIGH SKILLED STEM labours with H1B visa petitions.The actual HIGH SKILLED employees those came to USA are IITians and Centrally funded national universities because they are extremely talented,have cracked world's one of the toughest exams like IIT JEE,AIEEE.USA is not attracting actually these real HIGH SKILLED employees instead you calling Mundane job doers,just experianced (NOT well talented) ones... :P haha this is crazy this is the actual fact/....that no one knows in USA.

You all talk about getting Americans jobs, but you allow H-1B visa holders to take our jobs away. If you really care about America, cancel H-1B visas so we can have our jobs.

PLEASE stop selling your American workers down the river! The H1B program is so riddled with fraud, lies, and corporate greed. You are contributing to this country's decline allowing this to continue!

It's absolutely unconscionable that we are allowing outside labor to be brought in to take American jobs. We were forced to endure outsourcing, losing good paying jobs due to corporate greed, and now they're bringing 'jobs' back and INsourcing the workers! That this is allowed to happen is unreal and wrong and every American should be very concerned enough to contact their Reps and let them know in no uncertain terms this is NOT acceptable!!

These type of programs do need to be thoroughly thought out by our government. Our country is sacrificing the people who live and are established here by "legal" means. The H-1B program needs to be abolished but now another issue rises up.....what happens with the people who are here now and have been given jobs by the corporations whom implemented the H-1B program?

I'm afraid to even show my name in that the company I work for may replace me with another HB1 Visa, or another Indian worker in India where they are constantly adding more IT people and eliminating them in the US

Obama along with both Houses of Congress have sold out common people for Chamber of Commerce corruption. They are greedy & rotten on both sides of the aisle and using smoke and mirrors to trash our economy and culture. And it will only get worse. Wake up America before it's too late--Central America has moved in next door and taken over thanks to NAFTA, we are now a Third World culture. Vote all incumbents out of office!!
