Good deal.

The Trump administration is considering rules for the H-1B visa program for high-tech workers that would prevent the visas from being extended.

The change is apparently intended to force the recipients, which number in the hundreds of thousands, to return to their country of origin before they could complete green card applications to stay in the U.S.

The proposed change was reported by the McClatchy newspaper chain, citing two anonymous sources briefed on the plan, which is being prepared by officials at the Department of Homeland Security. "The idea is to create a sort of 'self-deportation' of hundreds of thousands of Indian tech workers in the United States to open up those jobs for Americans," one source told McClatchy.


  1. The H-1B visa program. The best program money could buy. There never was a shortage of high tech skilled American workers. What there was, is a shortage of high tech skilled American workers, that will work for $34,000 a year. For their education and skill, the high tech skilled American workers wanted $70,000+ a year.

    The H-1B visa program is now and always was a fraud. It was paid for by bribes to politicians. It was bought by businesses that saw how illegals depressed average workers wages and wanted the same low wages for their skilled workers. With lies and bribes suddenly there was not enough “Americans” to do the jobs. They needed foreign workers at half or less the wages of the Americans. And so, with political contributions, envelopes stuffed with cash, and very favorable stock options. The politicians saw their need and suddenly, the H-1B visa program, was born.

    Now before you think my comments, “envelopes stuffed with cash, and very favorable stock options,” was just hyperbole. Think on this, a politician with net worth less than a million dollars is elected. Then ten to fifteen years later his net worth has grown to twenty million dollars or more. How would you explain that wealth?


    1. Seems they are all guilty. I called Burr's office once and told the answer-er to congratulate Burr on his bought vote. The guy seemed offended and said no he didn't do that. I said yeah he got $350K from the winning side while the losing side (the correct one) only gave him $80K.
