What country caps look like to real people
You join a team at a company. Start the perm process (again). Get an i140 months later (again)
Maybe 4 years later a junior engineer joins your team, gets a GC within a year. Teammates who know less about this process ask you why you’re still messing with the H1b process when you fly back home every year to restamp your visa (again) for the nth time.
And you have to explain its because you were born in the wrong country.
I’m just filling out the terrible DS160 for the millionth time and the website is so broken it makes me super mad.
I mean, everything else aside, why is the H1b renewal process such a shitshow? If the laws as they currently are mean I can work in the US for ever and keep renewing my H1b if my i140 is filed, why not just make the H1b renewal process automatic? This is all so terribly pointless.
