Ammar Campa-Najjar works in the Office of Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Labor.
If he is not an employee, where are the details of his company being awarded a contract where Americans were invited to bid to provide the services that you are receiving from him?
American citizens want to know.
Pay attention to the start and end dates for each position and ask yourself how he was able to climb so high so fast with very little working experience that I can see in his resume.

Fwd: FW: Asian American Candidates, Muslim American Candidatesfor the personnel notebook. ———- Forwarded message ———-Lists from Preeta attached. I took Mansour Ijaz off the list, way bad idea, can explain if needed. G ———- Forwarded message ———- FYI also. ________________________________ Here are the compiled lists of Asian American and Muslim American candidates for top Administration jobs, sub-cabinet jobs, and outside boards/agencies/policy committees. A couple things to note about the list of Muslim American candidates: 1) In the candidates for top jobs, I excluded those with some Arab American background but who are not Muslim (e.g., George Mitchell). Many Lebanese Americans, for example, are Christian. In the last list (of outside boards/commissions), most who are listed appear to be Muslim American, except that a handful (where noted) may be Arab American but of uncertain religion (esp. Christian). 2) There is only one candidate I thought was a viable one for a Secretary-level job among the Muslim Americans. That said, on both lists, there are some very senior people listed in the last category (for outside boards/commissions) who conceivably could be considered for top jobs. The very senior people I put on the last list tended not to be terribly involved in politics or policy, or in the case of some Asian Americans, had already served in the Clinton and even Carter Administrations and so I thought we should seek new talent. But there’s no magic to some of the placements. I think the lists are fairly exhaustive, but some of the people may be moved to other categories. 3) High-profile Muslim Americans tend to be the subject of a fair amount of blogger criticism, and so the individuals on this list would need to be ESPECIALLY carefully vetted. I suspect some of the people I list would not survive such a vet — but I do personally know, at least in part, virtually all of the candidates in the 1st two categories (but I know very few of those listed for outside boards/commissions). 4) I listed the elected Muslim American democratic officials at the end of the second category, but for various reasons, I didn’t think any of them would necessarily be suitable for an Administration appointment. Nevertheless, I wanted to flag them for you in case you wanted to evaluate them further. DOJ list will be coming in the next two days. Judges and USAttorneys will still take about 10 days. Let me know if the latter are needed sooner. Preeta D.

I am so sick of our government not stomping down hard on discrimination against Americans in America.
Will they grow a set of balls when Obama finally leaves office, or have they already been neutered?

HYDERABAD: A 50-year-old Narsimha Rao Bhogavalli, founder of Tekdynamics firm and IT entrepreneur settled in Dallas, Texas in the USA, allegedly duped a number of US citizens by swindling `500 crore deposited by them for paying taxes.
Narsimha Rao, who hails from Hyderabad, quit his job at IBM in 2004 to set up Tekdynamics, an IT consultancy firm in Dallas.
Tekdynamics had filed 104 labour condition applications for H1B visa and two labour certifications for green card from fiscal year 2013 to 2015. The firm was ranked 2,309 among all visa sponsors in USA in an attempt to recruit employees.
Narsimha accepted applications from various people from Pakistan and other countries to work in his firm.
“Tekdynamics company is based in Greenway Drive – Suite 290 Irving, Dallas, USA and Narsimha has recruited hundreds of people by providing green cards. Narsimha indulged in illegal activities by duping American people on the pretext of tax dues and collected huge amounts of money from victims,” sources said.
It was also revealed that Narsimha and his staff had collected around 242 deposits of cash and money orders worth `100 crore. The businessman also collected money orders worth `60 crore through his bank account in Bank of America. During the investigation, it came to light that he had recruited Americans to work in the firm in US.
OALJ on H-1B Repayment Agreement: Matter of Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society
Matter of Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society, Oct. 26, 2016– “The rub is whether the actual wage is what Woodmen Life paid Garcia ($92,880.77) or whether it should be based on what it paid five other non H-1B System Test Engineers who had similar qualification and experience as Garcia ($79,094, on average). Complicating the analysis is the fact that some (or perhaps even all) of the $4,575 deducted pursuant to the Employee Repayment Agreement came from Garcia’s unused vacation time. The parties do not agree on where the $4,575 deduction came from; however, given that his gross pay for the nine days he worked totaled $3,214.78, that sum is insufficient to cover the $4,575 deduction. JX-10. His unused gross vacation pay was $9,644.33, which clearly could have covered the entire deduction. JX-10 & 12. For purposes of my analysis, I find that the entire deduction was taken from Garcia’s unused vacation pay and address the Administrator’s arguments under section 655.731(c)(3) and (c)(9). Because that is dispositive, I need not enter the thicket of whether Garcia was paid the required wage because there was no deduction from his actual wage of $92,880.77. … I find that Woodmen Life did not violate § 655.731(a)(3) because Garcia’s benefits were offered on the same basis and in accordance with the same criteria as offered U.S. workers. To give Garcia full payment for his unused vacation time and not allow a deduction pursuant to the terms of his repayment agreement places Garcia in a better position than Woodmen’s other U.S. employees with repayment agreements and unused vacation time. … Because $4,575 deduction for H-1B attorney fees came from the benefits side of the equation and not Garcia’s required wage, this section is inapplicable to the case at bench. The Administrator’s reading of the regulation as prohibiting any deduction of H-1B attorney fees and costs from an employees pay or benefits is far too broad and not supported by the plain language of the regulation. … Woodmen Life’s Cross Motion for Summary Decision is GRANTED and the Administrator’s Motion for Summary Decision is DENIED. Woodmen Life paid Garcia his required wage and no back wage assessment is required.”
What a load of horse crap.
Reliability of the U.S. economy on high-skilled employees
Between 1996 and 2000 foreign-born workers constituted nearly half of the net increase in the U.S. labor force. Without highly skilled workers and diverse ideas the Unites States can lose its status of being the largest country for business services. Economic growth of the country is visible via economic growth of different countries. For example, United States, Australia, and Singapore have an open inflow of foreign talent and the economy of these countries is booming comparing to Germany, Korea, and Russia.
H-1B visa status
If a student is planning to stay within the country for more than 12 months, they require an extended visa, a H-1B visa. An employer has to sponsor the employee, which leads to international students causing more paperwork and cost on the employer. During Optional Practical Training (OPT) international students can receive a job offer from a sponsoring company, but for some companies’ reject visa dependency. Many international students leave the United States because of unfriendly immigration laws. Each April employers apply for H-1B visas for their employees which will allow them to continue working in the country. In 2015, on the 7th of April, U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services stopped accepting applications when they received 172,500 requests the first week.
Innovation and job creation in the U.S.
•In 2008 a study was conducted by Harvard University proving that foreigners who have a doctorate comprise around half of all scientists and engineers in the United States.
•H-1B visas play an important role in innovation growth of the United States. It is a fact that numbers of inventions measured by patents increase when number of H-1B visas rise.
•The shortage of H-1B and green-card limitations in 2003-2007, foreign graduates could contribute to the Gross Domestic Product by $13.6 billion in 2008, and even more in taxes.
•The National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP), found that there is a positive relationship between the number of H-1B positions requested by employees and the total percentage change in the total employment one year later.
•Bill Gates claimed in 2008 that “Microsoft has found that for every H-1B we hire, we add on average four additional employees to support them in various capacities.”
•For every H-1B position requested, US technology companies increase their employment by 5 workers meaning that U.S. labor market have an increased demand for highly skilled foreign workers.
H-1B workers and labor force
The U.S. department of Labor ensures that H-1B workers do not displace or adversely affect wages or working conditions of U.S. workers. They file the Labor Condition Application, in which the employer ensures that the firm will pay the nonimmigrant more than actual compensation paid other employees in the same job or the prevailing compensation for that occupation; the firm will provide working conditions for the nonimmigrant that do not affect other employees; and that there is no applicable strike or lockout.
The Displaced American would respectfully state that he and millions of others have been displaced because of the mass importation of non-immigrant guest workers.
As an example, I need to come up with $625.00 today to make my land payment.
The only thing I have on that land is my kitchen that you can see in the following picture, and folks, in 2002 I was making $12,000 per month.
So you tell me, are we really doing anything good for the economy of the American people?
Or is it all going to India?
