      This is a bullshit graph because it doesn't take into account repealing the "less immigration from china" provision of the Chinese Student Protection Act.

      The problem with that graph is that it doesn't take into account the fact that unused EB-1 numbers spill over to EB-2 and unused EB-2 numbers spill over to EB-3. This means that the number of EB-2 visas that would go to Indians over the next few years under HR 1044 would be much greater than 40,000 per year, and lots of Indians and Chinese will downgrade from EB-2 to EB-3 to avoid having unused EB-3 numbers, which means it would not take nearly as long to clear the backlog as that graph claims. Basically, the total EB-{1,2,3} quota of 120,000 would become available for clearing the backlog (except for the transitional period, and except for the fact that people actually in the EB-1 category will of course still receive priority over the EB-2 backlog).

    American workers can’t compete with people who have much lower expectations of the quality of life. For many immigrants, sharing bedroom with other men and eating cheapest food and never going out is fine. I don’t want my kids to compete with that. It just drives the quality of life down for everyone.

    Only desperate people will be coming to US - e.g. Infosys/Tata material. Conditions in home country need to be real bad to agree to stay in visa limbo for years, so 1st world citizens (with best education, etc) will not bother coming.

      OP
      Salaries are over 2x higher than Canada so I'll take visa limbo

      Right, you don’t need to get H1 first. I was lucky to get H1 during the Great Recession - it took me 2 months from my first contact with the recruiter to getting visa stamp at the embassy. I would not have come at any other year, waiting Mar - Oct would be too nerve-wrecking. It’s like US only wants most disparate people, who agree to anything to leave their country...

    If you already have an approved i140, it changes nothing for you.

      So, you're asking if you will be allowed to maintain your priveleged position over someone already waiting in the queue. Nope. Get in the line like the rest of the folks.

      All the best explaining to people why you would like to continue holding your privileges because you belong to a certain country.

      Or.. pass s386 so that American workers don't have to compete with workers with lesser rights, because that's a battle they'll keep losing.

      So, why are you putting up with that? Go back to your loving country. I can only imagine what would the attitude in India be if white people would come in droves, eager to work for significantly lower pay.

      You dumbfk

      1. How do you know I am in the US?

      2. I didn't bring race into this but if you're talking about white people , they already looted India for 150 years. Not legally btw. It was an invasion.

      3. US reps making laws and not you. Indians are here legally so if you have a problem go talk to your president. He's the one going to sign or veto the bill. There's no need to take it out on regular people. We are simply following the law. Isn't America a country that follows the rule of law?

      Who says I love India? I never said that did I? I like it here but I won't put up with stupidity and hatred. It's not either or.
