- Snapchat SnappieGive jobs to Americans first! Then the rest of the people can be grated H1 once we’ve given everyone here employment. I don’t but the BS about talent not being available. We can train and invest in people. I felt the system was very bad and resulted in people just coming here, getting married and having kids so they could become US citizens. The Indian and Chinese population benefited from this immensely. The quality of the people coming in was substandard and often were hired but other people had interviewed for them. The reality is people were gaming the system big time. I am not racist and do understand people’s position but I am a relish. Trump is right on this one.
- Microsoft vplc07Middle East countries and many socialist countries prioritize their citizens. The US is not like them. Entitlements only include meh public schools, Medicaid and food stamps.
We have always been importing immigrants since like forever. European scientists post WW2. Soviet scientists during the Cold War. We should continue to prioritize the best talents regardless of citizenship. Because talents are distributed globally but opportunities are not.
Almost half of Goldman Sachs Partners (highest rank) have non-US citizenships. Goldman Sachs has been and continues to be the most prestigious investment bank for decades.
- Thanks snappie for posting those links, so who was running those universities?
Did it ever occurred to you that why were such universities running and giving fake degrees. Were they doing charity or it was profitable for university to have foreign student, as they can charge high tuition fees.
From where I look at it, both the parties were playing foul games, and it was probably symbiotic relationship for parties involved.
- @snappie I totally agree citizens should get first priority. But as you have said that not all citizens have got relevant education, what will you do until that problem is solved? Hence you need employment based immigration.
Snapchat and other companies care for H1b fees and attorney fees. It runs in few tens of millions for companies that size.
Sure there are lots who have gamed the system of immigration. But politicians across both parties have been saying for more than a decade now and not solving anything. I hope trump solves it, but just rhetorics against immigration doesn’t help. Immigration systems needs a change, not regress.
And seriously I don’t want to compare US policies to Middle East policies
- I have been hearing about H1b change, merit based immigration, wall since Trump came to power for about 2 yrs now. But nothing has changed transcendently.
- New Da'VinciOnly someone who has no concept of the current hiring climate will think Trump has changed nothing. The Trump administration have tightened the noose around every rope possible without going to Congress.
The H1b situation is getting more dire and hiring people is simply getting harder. This is all thanks to Trump. Call him what you will. He is delivering on his promises and leaving some destruction in his wake.Oct 18, 2018 6
- Democrats oppose *any* immigration reform. They don’t give a shit about legal immigrants. Sanctuary cities, deportation protection for illegals, free health care for illegals paid by us all are the top of their priority list. We’re not valuable because we can’t vote. Also, income wise we’re making “too much”, are in their view partly to blame for the “income inequality” and should be robbed blind with new taxes to pay for the homeless druggies that shit in front of our houses.Oct 18, 2018 8
- I meant Nothing has changed majorly. More petty enforcement of existing rules. Smarter people hesitate to immigrate to US these days because of dumb outdated immigration laws.
If hiring is difficult (I know it is), why isn’t your company lobbying for an immigration policy change ? Companies successfully lobby for tax cuts, guns and other stuff, why can’t they lobby for better immigration laws.
Basically companies were ok to keep people on H1b for years (Indians and Chinese mainly due to slow green card processing for them) and now it has reached a point where it is backfiring on companies.
Outdated immigration laws and petty enforcement of existing laws does not reduce immigration. It only reduces immigration of smarter ppl. There are huge numbers who still want to come here without anything and however difficult immigration policiesOct 18, 2018 2

- Snapchat SnappieAlso, the fact that India and China have such strict business policies within their own country but when it comes to the US they want to grab every benefit and pump out babies for the passport. It’s a sad reality
- Can you please elaborate on what stage should consenting adult immigrant on H-1 or other visa decide to have children?
Do they need permission from state, government or any other entity, on when to plan family?
There might be foul players, whose sole purpose of having kids is something for their advantage, but please do not generalize.Oct 18, 2018 2

- Good move. Should have made it BEFORE China took over as the world’s only real superpower.
Indians would be better in India when the dollar decline hits.
- They will just move on to other countries ex - Canada and some European countries it even their own countries . The companies will follow them. Trump or Republicans will then try to tax the companies that move their work offshore.
