India Has Concern About U.S. Visa Policies

Concern?

We thought US visas belonged to the US and they were our guests?

Why does India continue to act as though the US visa programs are its property?

Just whose gov’t is this?

Beyond hurting American tech companies, the executive order would disproportionately impact one international ally: India. Over 70 percent of all H1-B visas issued each year are given to Indians, and 85 percent of H1-B visas in the technology sector go to Indians.

India-based outsourcing companies Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro processed 7,149 and 4,022 H1-B visas, respectively, for American firms in 2014, according to the New York Times.

India controls US visa + immigration policy.

Not highly skilled and talented.
