Thread: Why the H-1B Visa Racket Should Be Abolished, Not Reformed

    OK, I provided links with evidence, and all you do is repeat the US Chamber and cheap labor lobby talking points. You have no evidence to back up your claims.

    See? They hear things. They see things. But I doubt very highly that they are of the geopolitical aptitude to relate what they are seeing and hearing to the reality of the situation. They think they are qualified because they don't know they got an inferior education. To them, they think they got great education. But they didn't. They forgot that in todays American education system, everybody is on the honor roll. lol. You know it and I know it. It's just another example of the entitlement mindset.

    And unfortunately for them, they don't have a right to have their feelings addressed. It's okay. Just give them a sticker and a mop and call them the last winner.

    The problem with the H1B is the grade school and high school education system. That needs to be resolved. But you guys are against the education system so you're stuck in your own horse pucky and trying to circlejerk around the issue and compartmentalize it into something else. I suppose mom and dad (if there is such a situation) can teach junior the mathematical prerequisites for quantum physics if he can pull them away from Dancing With The Stars and their McMac for 5 minutes. Couldn't they?
    Why doesn't this apply to all STEM fields? Why is Computer Science the only STEM field which is decreasing for US students?

    Is President Trump acting on his recent ultimatum for India's Modi?


    Trump's Afghanistan strategy includes a new ultimatum for India
    Matthew Pennington, Associated Press
    Aug. 22, 2017
    "We appreciate India's important contributions to stability in Afghanistan, but India makes billions of dollars in trade with the United States, and we want them to help us more with Afghanistan, especially in the area of economic assistance and development," Trump said.
    He didn't elaborate, but the threat was clear, especially given Trump's regular chafing over countries enjoying significant trade surpluses with the United States. Either India must pony up more money for what the Trump administration is calling its "regional approach" to Afghanistan, or it could face commercial repercussions.
    The U.S. deficit in goods and services with India last year was about $30 billion. Trump also is reviewing a work visa program heavily used by Indians.

    Interpreting Trump’s not-so-subtle threat to India to do more in Afghanistan
    One, this is a clear and overt threat: cooperate or else. President Trump has been waving the trade flag in all his perorations concerning India. He has been unequivocal about seeking enhanced market access for US goods and services. The joint press statement issued during prime minister Narendra Modi’s Washington DC visit has him saying: “It is important that barriers be removed to the export of US goods into your markets, and that we reduce our trade deficit with your country.” Indo-US trade touched $114.8 billion during 2016, with India enjoying a $30.8-billion trade surplus. It would seem Trump has made India’s trade with the US contingent upon cooperation in Afghanistan.



    US committee passes bill increasing minimum pay of H1B visa holders to $90,000


    If made into law, this bill could prove a deterrent to organisations hiring Indian techies.
    TNM Staff
    • Friday, November 17, 2017





    In what could prove to be a hurdle for Indian IT companies, a key US Congressional Committee has voted in favour of passing a legislation that proposes to increase the minimum salaries of H1B visa holders from $60,000 to $90,000, reported PTI.
    The Protect and Grow American Jobs Act (HR 170), which also proposes several other restrictions on H1B visa holders, a majority of whom are Indian, was passed by the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
    According to the PTI report, the bill will next head to the full House. A similar version of the bill will also have to be passed by the Senate after which US President Donald Trump can sign it into law.
    Following Trump's election on a protectionist platform, the US has announced stricter norms for issuing the H1B and L1 visas.

    H1B visas are one of the most opted visas in the US that provide skilled workers from foreign countries work in a wide range of specialty occupations, including information technology, academic research, and accounting. It is used mostly by Indian IT professionals.

    In April, the US administration began enforcing stricter bureaucratic norms for the issuance of H1B visas in order to prevent "fraud and abuse" in the programme.

    There was apaprenty no change in above policy despite all the noise and yet India has joined China-Europe in a global trade war escalation against US starting today?



    India just retaliated with new tariffs on U.S. goods. Here’s why developing economies like tariffs.

    by Ida Bastiaens, Nita Rudra and Stacey Williams June 28

    
    In a week that saw President Trump tweet against a wide range of companies and countries, India got its own shout-out for high tariffs. India joined the European Unionand China to push back against U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs, and notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) last week that it would impose higher import tariffs on 30 U.S. goods, including almonds, shrimp and chocolates.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...-like-tariffs/


    Worldwide retaliation for US tariffs begin on Sunday, putting a 'bull's eye' on wide range of goods



    • Fighting back against the Trump administration's steel tariffs, Canada will start collecting duties on a variety of U.S. products, including orange juice, yogurt, whiskey, maple syrup and soups.
    • Mexico and China will soon start collecting new tariffs on U.S. pork and dairy products.
    • On July 6, China is expected to unleash a 25 percent tariff on U.S. soybeans, a move that farmers have long dreaded.

    In the next thread we will be covering how to drain money from US back to India - tax free via ghost workers. You just pay them wages! In one of the places I worked in the past, I was able to locate, on the company chart, a very junior person with 300 contractors reporting. What could she possibly do with them?

    One of the only times I saw a manager fired was an Indian woman who hired 10-20 "workers" in India via deceptive means. There was no work for them, she was just building an empire. One of those things that is acceptable in many places in the world.

    Building empires is par for the course in US as well. There are some areas where it is normal hiring low skill workers (<$100k/yr) for the purpose of addressing a real problem which is somewhere else. You end up with a department 100+ strong while the original problem persists. In the meantime the company is still working on the strategy, goes through multiple reorgs, fires and hires people but doesn't really address the elephant in the room because somebody might feel offended. Everybody is 100% busy while the actual output is close to 0%

    hears how I see it. I don't want criminals to run around in the society where I live. Be they citizens or not. Every country on the planet locks up criminals within their borders. So, why would ANY country want/accept criminals from any other country? Its the bad apples in the apple cart nobody wants. Seriously, if I can go through a 10 day background check to own a firearm why is the immigration process so long? Why not do a background check, quick physical for gnarly communicable diseases like Ebola and grant citizenship. Put up a wall/barrier/Kinetic Border impediment device for those that try to bypass this. Additionally, demolish the welfare system.

    Funny how it is the policies of some libertarians that will accelerate a Communist takeover in the US. At some point libertarians need to wake up that they are being played by the elites for that purpose. The only road to achieve a more libertarian like system within the region of the US is to take a more nationalist approach.

    Some of them are useful idiots but others may be in the pay of the "Integrity Initiative":

    Major Psy-Op In Europe Exposed: UK Government Tramples On Values It Vowed To Protect

    Covert British Military-Smear Machine Moving Into US

    In a strange twist, Ross appeared on stage at the Integrity Initiative’s Seattle event alongside Emmi Bevensee, a contributor to the left-libertarian Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS) think tank, whose tagline, “a left market anarchist think-tank” expresses its core aim of uniting far-left anarchists with free-market right-libertarians.
    Bevensee, a PhD candidate at the University of Arizona and self-described “Borderlands anarcho into tech and crypto,” concluded her presentation by asserting a linkage between the alternative news site, Zero Hedge, and the “physical militarized presence in the borderlands” of anti-immigrant vigilantes.
    Like Bevensee, Ross has written for C4SS in the past.
    The irony of contributors to an anarchist group called the “Center for a Stateless Society” auditioning before The State – the most jackbooted element of it, in fact – for more opportunities to attack anti-war politicians and journalists, can hardly be overstated.
    But closer examination of the history of C4SS veers from irony into something much darker and more unsettling.


    C4SS was co-founded in 2006 by a confessed child rapist and libertarian activist, Brad ********, who set the group up to promote “Market anarchism” to “replace Marxism on the left.”

    When ********’s child rape confessions emerged in 2015, the Center for Stateless Society founder was finally drummed out by his colleagues.
    There’s more: ********’s understudy and deputy in the C4SS, Kevin Carson — currently listed as the group’s “Karl Hess Chair in Social Theory” — turned out to be a longtime friend and defender of white nationalist Keith Preston. Preston’s name is prominently plastered on the back of Kevin Carson’s book, hailing the C4SS man as “the Proudhon of our time” — a loaded compliment, given the unhinged anti-Semitism of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, the influential 19thCentury French anarchist.
    Carson only disowned Preston in 2009, shortly before Preston helped white nationalist leader Richard Spencer launch his alt-right webzine, Alternative Right.

    — exiledonline.com (@exiledonline) January 13, 2016
    The C4SS group currently participates in the annual Koch-backed International Students For Liberty conference in Washington, D.C., LibertyCon, a who’s who of libertarian think-tank hacks and Republican Party semi-celebrities like Steve Forbes, FCC chairman Ajit Pai, and Alan Dershowitz.
    In 2013, C4SS’s Kevin Carson tweeted out his dream fantasy that four Jewish leftists—Mark Ames, co-author of this article; Yasha Levine; Corey Robin, and Mark Potok — would die in a plane crash while struggling over a single parachute. Potok was an executive editor at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which last year retracted every one of the crank articles that Alexander Reid Ross published with them and formally apologized for having run them.

    For some reason, the super-sleuth Ross conveniently failed to investigate the libertarian group, C4SS, that he has chosen to partner with and publish in. That ability to shamelessly smear and denounce leftists over the most crudely manufactured links to the far-right—while cozying up to groups as sleazy as C4SS and authoritarian as the Integrity Initiative —is the sort of adaptive trait that MI6 spies and the Rendon Group would find useful in a covert domestic influence operation.
    Ross did not respond to our request for comment on his involvement with the Integrity Initiative and C4SS.
