H-1B Visa: US Congressman to Table Bill Seeking to Abolish OPT Work for Foreign Students

No wonder Americans can’t find jobs with the flood of racist Indian-only OPTs. Now an AZ Congressman is doing something about it.


“AZ Congressman Gosar is set to table a bill that seeks to end Optional Practical Training (OPT), a federal government program that allows foreign students and graduates of US colleges and universities to work in the country for up to three years.

A majority of foreign students + graduates use the Optional Practical Training program as a pathway to the H-1B visa.

The Republican Congressman’s office said he would introduce a bill dubbed “Fairness for High-Skilled Americans Act of 2019” within two weeks to abolish OPT program.

Last year, Pew Research reported that the OPT program grew 400 percent in the last 10 years following the government’s 2008 decision to boost the amount of time students and graduates in the fields of science, technology + math could stay in the US.

Talk about racist + bigotted.
