US earns from H1b like no other country can

Here is my calculations:

The figures are approximate based on USCIS website and fees based on my experience and mentioned website...

Below earning is per year

85,000 (application) X
$1500 (Visa fees) + 3,00,000 (Actual applications) X $500 (attorney charged) + 8,50,000 (Legal H1bs for visa renewal since 2007 to 2018) X ($1000 - normal and premium processing fees average) + 7,00,000 (GC applications) x $1225 + 2,440,000 (Total H1bs now) x $20,000 (Tax every year paid by H1bs employees) = 127500000 + 150000000+ 850000000 + 857500000+ 48800000000 = billions of $... Just H1b from India... I have not accounted direct immigrant and from other counties... I also didn’t count H1b’s visitor comes to US and spend money for traveling and contribute to economy...

do you think any government don’t need this much money every year ?

Still Indian H1bs taking job ? Still legal immigrants from India bad for US ? Seriously?

    Again, if you can't see the bigger picture that h1b are very small percentage of the population, and you and me are perfectly replaceable and think you are too important to not be replaced, you have lost it .

    Remember that this country went to recession in 2008 where it lost 200k jobs (that's equivalent in job numbers to 1/3 of all h1b jobs in US) every month for several months and is chugging along fine.

    Stop being self centered and consider seeing the world around you.

      Yeah right. Have you looked at the hiring figures since then? The tech industry hardly lost jobs and they helped the industry grow to new heights.

      The 2008 had so much to do with finance industry- and there wasn't a big change in tech. I was referring to the job losses and recovery in finance and overall economy.

      You can also look at 2001 and see how quickly tech recovered. Unless we realize how small portion of the pie we are, folks are bound to think the country will fold without them.

      This country will remain and worst case will go through some short term pain if everyone on h1 is kicked out over a few years.

      Every Immigrant group I know of always has this opinion that if they aren't present, the country will perish. This is a big fallacy.

      The money is spent by the company, not directly from the individual's pocket but yes there are billions of dollars companies can spend on expansion and job creation which is spent on work force maintenance.

    Yes, boycott those crony capitalists, dont apply for visas.
    Remember, every time you apply for US visa, you contribute to imperialism.

    You know why indians ended up im africa and arab lands? British exploited them for cheap labor.

    Same in US. Indians are digital coolies exploitrd to build digital infrastructure the way chinese used to build railroads.

    Many stupid illegal aliens have larger houses and fancier cars than h1b indians in siliconvalley.
