USCIS Must Give Up H-1B Visa Docs, 7th Circ. Finds

The Seventh Circuit on Monday ruled against U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in a Freedom of Information Act dispute with a retired immigration attorney, finding the agency’s search for records on the H-1B visa program was inadequate.

I too have had a hard time finding the data I need.

I believe it is because if the data was exposed, Americans in America would realize they are being destroyed by our own government just like is happening in canada.

Deny or Die OR the VA does not answer to Congress or the Senate

In about two more days it will be a month since Congressman Lamar Smith asked for the paperwork on the VA job as a Food Service Worker that I was hired for.

And it is going on three weeks now since Senator Cornyn got involved with this project.

Senator Cruz, Vice President Biden and President Obama are probably playing golf as they were begged as well as I desperately need work that will pay a living wage with the opportunity for advancement based on my contribution to the company that I work for.

Needless to say, they are no shows.

And as I’m sure the VA knows by now, I am squeaky clean except for my credit being destroyed because I haven’t been able to find steady work for 12 years now.

Like the rest of these guys playing checkers, I got forced out at 45, but there is no home for elderly programmers which means I must put a roof over my head myself, which is why I begged for help.

Oh well, here are the documents I sent to Senator Cornyn and Congressman Lamar Smith.

They probably got flushed down the toilet at the Senate and Congress once they were used in lieu of something else.

Had the language been changed to, say, 15 percent of the IT work force, it would have been different.

The loophole is in the language: The 15 percent limit applies to entire
companies, including human resources, sales, finance, business development
and so on. Since most IT organizations do not constitute 15 percent of their
companies’ work force, it is impossible to hit that threshold and impossible
to protect U.S. workers.

“Had the language been changed to, say, 15 percent of the IT work force, it
would have been different,” Kilcrease said.

Shattered American dream

U.S. workers have a lot to lose from abuse of the H1-B law. When Kilcrease
lost her job, for example, she also lost many of her retirement benefits,
since she was terminated six months shy of her 10-year anniversary.
Fortunately, she was trained in Lotus Development Corp.’s Notes, which was a
hot skill to have at the time, and she landed a new job right away.
Other U.S. IT workers feel that they have not been so lucky. Older workers
looking for IT jobs, for example, say the availability of foreign workers
with H1-B visas has made it easier for employers to engage in age
discrimination. Many older workers feel as if they are being quickly passed
over for H1-B individuals.

According to one 60-year-old IT professional working as a computer
generalist for a temporary-employment agency in Miami, the main reason he
cannot land a permanent job is his age. The worker, who requested anonymity,
has a master’s degree in computer science and more than 25 years of
experience at building systems, but when his age is disclosed, the line of
questioning shifts.

“As soon as they find out how old I am, the questions stop being about what
skills I have, and they start asking me about the skills I don’t have,” the
programmer said.

A hunting we will go.

A hunting we will go.

Age Discriminators we will find.

And we will mount their deeds on our Wall of Shame.

My life in a video – watch where I hit the bottom of that waterfall…

Started out in a humble ranching community.

Quit high school after my jr year and worked for AMF Tuboscope in Port Gentil Gabon, West Africa.

Had a blast with the other American kids in Las Palmas, Canary Islands on my days off.

Joined the navy and learned that I was good with technology.

Traveled all over America maintaining and supporting software systems of all types.

And then one day I was sent to the bottom of that waterfall by companies importing temporary workers on temporary NON IMMIGRANT VISAS which displaced Americans like myself.

Twelve years later I’m still at the bottom of that waterfall, but I’m getting the feeling that I’m close to finding the keys to that jet.

So the lobbyists do not believe we can use the LCA applications to show the displacement of Americans?

There are fools and damned fools born every minute.

I am seeking funding for KAAW so that I can hire some much needed programming and analyst talent to take KAAW to the next level so that we can debunk FWD.us’s Tokyo Rose Propaganda.

Take the list listed above.

It is a very simple matter to write a program stripping out the number above that shows how many visas were really issued and then matching it up to the data in the 2009 LCA data file.

Once we have that, it is a simple matter to divide one by the other to come up with a percentage and then we create a spreadsheet on a year by year basis to show a cross tab history similar to this one.

At that point, it is very similar to predict how many excess applications each company is filing in order to get the visas approved that they need.

One problem we would have though is that the USCIS has not publicized the data for years other than 2009.

Why is that?

What are they hiding?
