re: India Tells U.S.: H-1B Process Too Slow
Arguing against the Bloombergian-replace-an-American-with-a-foreign-national pod-person crowd is like arguing auto-theft ...
... where you are forced to debate the thieves, and their cohorts all the way down the feeding-chain, and the preceding, thief, benefactors, and useful-idiots alike, are heavily funded by the crime-lords and their lobbies, via the G«ˇtakeG«÷.
Death-By-Foreign-National is not laissez-faire.
Death-By-Foreign-National is not free-market.
MNCs' [/media/and academia] are not [supposed to be] in charge of U.S. immigration.
Visas such as H-1b, should be immediately suspended. MILLIONS of our better paying jobs would be instantly RETURNED, to Americans, in America.
HOW can anyone speak of returning jobs to Americans, while they ignore, or worse, lobby for, the CONTINUED replacement of MILLIONS of Americans, in American offices and worksites, with foreign nationals?
MUMBAI: US diplomat Peter Haas, recently appointed consul-general in Mumbai, stressed the importance of people-to-people contact in Indo-US ties.
US-India people-to-people connections are more powerful than any government initiative, said Haas. "While 8 lakh Americans travel to India each year, the US issues half a million non-immigration visas to Indians yearly," he said adding that Indian citizens formed the largest group of people to be issued H1B and L visas by the US over the last year.
H-1b, L-1s, OPT, J-1, B-1, lotteries, green-cards, and on and on, and on, and on, it is no longer enough to stand as a nation and compete with the world-at-large, but no, the world at large will be brought to you, so that you may compete with them in your own offices and worksites...
The J-1 student work-travel program was created in 1961 to offer work opportunities and cultural enrichment for foreign students, and in the process, create goodwill ambassadors for the United States.
But the kids arenG«÷t working in professional settings that complement their studies.
TheyG«÷re toiling in warehouses for huge companies such as HersheyG«÷s, which have laid off hundreds of workers, and resorts, from Disney World to MoreyG«÷s Pier in Wildwood, and for much lower wages than Americans earned doing the same tasks.
ItG«÷s a great deal for U.S. companies, because they donG«÷t have to pay payroll taxes, Social Security or health insurance for J-1s.
One Spring Lake staffing company even has a nifty calculator to help businesses compare the costs of hiring J-1 vs. American workers.
We should also revoke some or all green-cards, RETURNING a MASSIVE number of jobs, for Americans, in American.
And then there is the issue of sending our jobs offshore, often implemented by those brought to our country on visa, or those having become a green-card holder, who then coordinate the shipping of entire departments, knowledge-bases, and ultimately, entire industries, out of our country.
And what of, low to medium wage jobs? We can look towards our wide-open borders, and consider the traitors that advocate a nation without enforcement of its own borders, its laws, and disinterest in its own sovereign best-interest, survival.
And yes, it is Americans who have facilitated this betrayal of Americans, by corporations, supported by a sold-out government and press.
