Immigrant visa reform poised to complicate hiring plans

“The U.S. House of Representatives has passed legislation to make it easier for workers from India to get permanent residency status. This green card reform bill has big implications for employers of immigrant visa workers, making it harder to hire people from countries other than India”.

Except for 2 little problems: H-1B is a non-immigrant visa, and under Title 8 of US law it is illegal for any foreign worker to even enter the US for work if doing so harms American workers similarly employed.

“Those that argue for maintaining the present system maintain that “it permits the greatest diversity of immigrants to the U.S.,” Greenfield said. But others said the current system is unfair because it puts India, with a population of 1.3 billion, on par with a country such as Iceland, with a population of 300,000, he said”.

Actually, common sense would dictate that the countries with the largest populations should be restricted even more to prevent them from overunning the US.

Stop the India-first racist S.386 bill in Congress now.
