As you say, India has a huge pool of applicants that want to come in.
Many more than the total number of employed people in America, I would wager as we only have about 150 million people working.
Yet you want to bring in more when we are not creating enough jobs for the American citizens in America as a simple first grade math calculation will show.
So the American citizens are demanding that their government make it possible so that they can provide for their families.
By denying people like yourself who I believe should be allowed to immigrate legally.
This is wrong.
But to deny me the opportunity to be all that I can be is wrong as well.
So I fight you.
The question is, will you join with me to fight the real problem which is Free Trade Agreements sending our jobs to other countries and a massive tidal wave of non-immigrant guest workers…!
“India has a huge pool of applicants that come in, but there are only a limited number of green cards that are issued every year for every country,” Asif Shah said. Indians in the H-1B status who were eligible for permanent residency in 2008 are just now being allowed to apply for permanent resident status.
None of the doctors can establish their own medical practice because they don’t have permanent resident status. Kanthala is board certified in geriatrics and expressed frustration that he could not open his own practice in Rome to put that training to use.
“I can start a practice, bring jobs,” Kanthala said. But it’s at that point where his immigration status slams on the brakes.
