Joe Guzzardi: U.S. Universities Opt for International Students at Americans’ Expense

US corporations will use any excuse they can to keep their cheap labor pipeline running.

Including “student visas” which then turn into H-1B visas, which turn into OPT extensions, then green cards, then citizenship.

Too bad it’s all illegal under Title 8.

“Of the 1.6 million, 328,205 participated in Optional Practical Training (OPT), which allows foreign-born students to work in U.S. jobs, ostensibly to obtain hands-on work experience in their chosen fields.

To its critics, however, the OPT program represents a bridge to the H-1B visa and, eventually, to a green card and U.S. citizenship. Along the way, OPTs permanently displace American tech workers and American college students from employment”.
