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?
