    Dude, you must be new. These things come and go every year. Relax, have some Bourbon. We're all in the same sinking ship for the next 2 decades ๐Ÿฅƒ

      Though it's backed by Kamala Harris this time who is a plausible 2020 Democrat Presidential candidate.

      This is introduced to have more things to discuss so that they wonโ€™t get time to talk about wall. All politics

    My concern is that this only makes things worse without some solution to the consulting shops spamming.

    The India queue is only long because of those body shop that fill the queue with 3rd rate people. If only the Indians capable of getting into good companies were in the queue it would actually be not so bad already.

    While the cap is unfair it's also incidentally protecting the system from the abusive practices by the body shops.

    I think it's better to fix that problem first and that this bill is actually a step backwards until then.

      Yup. Politicians are just trying to show they want to do something about legal immigration. But their priority is illegal immigration.

      If this bill becomes law then it hurts talented people from small countries (population wise) and they wait forever.

      This is totally against diversity we need in engineering. (At least)

    That 100+ year of wait time for Indians is an insult. Why give a f*ck for USofA? The startup scene in India is heating up. Why not move back?

      @heyyeh your arguments lack logic. The US Visa system legally allows whatever Indian consultancy firms are doing; so either it's the US Visa system that wants to be abused or the abuse is only in your head. Don't forget, whatever be the quality of the talent that the Indian outsourcers bring in, and I agree it's mostly mediocre, it's the US clients who suck up to it; it's them who sponsor their green cards. As much as I would like that to change asap, it seems to make business sense for the US employers and contributes to India's prosperity. It's not India's fault that she has so many "sponsorable" employees. The sad part is that the bright(er), more talented Indians are getting buried under the sheer weight of their more abundant but lesser talented brethren.

      "legally allows" does not change the fact (!) that India created a whole industry around the h1b program, and that this industry is the reason why the system has been flooded with Indians.

      You can say US clients pay for it and that's true. You can say it's legally allowed, which is true, but maybe shouldn't be.

      You can't say that the backlog isn't the result of India's own state policies and therefore cannot say it isn't India's fault.

      It is in fact the direct result of India's economic policies of basing its economy around the h1b program.

      That is why you have a 100 year wait for a greencard: because your country has this industry that floods the system.

      Is really pretty undeniable.

      If you think the third largest economy in the world by PPP is based on H1b, I seriously doubt your quant skills and mental fitness. Of the 10 Trillion GDP by PPP, only 99 billion is from IT export. As far as creating industry around h1b is concerned, India is damn right in doing so, because it can do so.

      @heyyeh is an ignorant racist who hates India for some reason. He is not aware of the facts, heโ€™s just sitting here making things up about India and posting hateful comments.

      Go read some newspaper, and know about the reality.
      IT is only 7% of Indiaโ€™s GDP.

      @s2a7 He posted these hateful comments in another thread and i was so tired of explaining him.

      Itโ€™s easier to teach a dog computer science than it is to explain something to @heyyeh, he is just so ...

      @highfive, you are pathetic, you keep on calling me names but you don't have a single point you actually dispute. Your posts add nothing to the discussion.

      You may not LIKE the fact that the Indian consulting companies caused this, but that doesn't entitle you to insult people.

      You have issues.
