H-1B visas: How the Trump administration is ‘freaking people out’

By QUEENIE WONG | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: February 20, 2018 at 6:00 am

The Trump administration is bringing a new level of scrutiny to a temporary work visa popular among technology firms, costing employers more time and money as they seek to bring foreign workers to the United States.

From January to August 2017, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services sent 85,265 requests for evidence in response to H-1B visa applications, a 45 percent increase compared to the same period a year earlier, agency data show. Immigration lawyers say these requests — made when an application is missing required documents or the agency determines it needs more proof to decide if a worker is eligible for the visa — could even discourage companies and individuals from seeking an H-1B visa in the first place.

“It’s the most nonvisible and yet hugely impactful way to reach people, and it’s freaking people out,” said Cynthia Lange, managing partner for the Northern California practice of Fragomen, an international immigration law firm that works with some of the world’s largest tech firms.

But administration officials say the scrutiny is needed to ensure the integrity of the controversial visa program, which critics say has cost American jobs.

Overall, about 27 percent of all H-1B visa applications USCIS received in the first eight months of 2017 got a request for evidence.

For the same eight-month period of the prior year, under the Obama administration, about 19 percent of all H-1B visa applications USCIS received got a request for evidence. …

So, 73% of H-1B visas still aren’t adequately vetted.

Answering requests for evidence increases the time employers spend on H-1B applications and legal costs for attorneys’ guidance in obtaining and submitting the additional information.

The increased scrutiny of H-1B visa applications could make some companies — especially small businesses with tighter budgets — think twice about hiring foreign workers.

But, at least it’s a start.

  2. How can a small business with a tight budget afford to go through all the time and paperwork involved in hiring foreign workers? Small businesses need easy to hire workers who can hit the ground running. The only way hiring foreign workers would make sense for a small business is if they’re trying to bring in relatives to work for a family firm, or they want to pay them a lower rate than native workers are prepared to work for.

  3. I vote for Cynthia Lange being replaced by an H-1b worker who is literate enough in the English language to refrain from using atrocities like “impactful”.

    Oh well then, I can see the need for the moral panic. How dare we actually inspect almost 30% of these visas!

    In 2007, there was a forum hosted by some immigration attorneys who showed the attendees how to game the system to get foreign workers.

    This clip is 4 minutes long and will give you an idea of the deceptive practices they use to justify the need to hire foreigners when Americans exist who would work the job.

  8. OT, two stories

    Rotherham was even worse than reported.

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/feb/20/rotherham-sexual-abuse-victims-rises-to-1510-operation-stovewood

    “The number of children believed to have been sexually exploited in Rotherham has been raised to 1,510, in the first official increase in the figure since the scandal erupted four years ago.

    The National Crime Agency (NCA) detectives revealed the updated figure on Tuesday in a briefing on Operation Stovewood, the investigation into child sexual exploitation over a 16-year period in the South Yorkshire town. Prof Alexis Jay’s report in 2014 identified 1,400 victims.

    The NCA inquiry, the biggest of its kind in the UK, has identified 110 suspects, of whom 80% are of Pakistani heritage, officers said.

    Of the 110, 38 have been arrested, 18 have been charged, two cautioned and four have been convicted and handed prison sentences totalling over 30 years.

    Thirty-four investigations are continuing under the Operation Stovewood umbrella, officers said, with six trials to take place later this year.

    Of the 1,510 potential victims, detectives said 260 – 17% – were speaking to officers but that police aimed to talk to every victim. The vast majority of victims were white British girls aged 11 to 18, police said.”

    And this story … well. Scale up from individual home to national home, some might say this is a sort of allegory. Lodger moves in, all very nice at first, starts changing a few things and making you feel a bit uncomfortable, things deteriorate, end game is being told “this isn’t your house anymore”.

    This blurb is from their history on their web site:

    “Established in 1951, Fragomen has grown from a respected domestic U.S. immigration law practice to a truly global organization.”

    So, they grew out of being a respected firm into a global threat.

  11. FI’m not sure the lack of requests for evidence means these aren’t being adequately vetted. HR divisions at larger companies know the documentation requirenents thoroughly. They don’t look particularly onerous i.e. the job requires a graduate with relevant work experience and degree to perform it, the employee is a graduate and has the required work experience, the employee will be working as a employee and not a freelance contractor. Easy enough to prove.

    Understand your sentiment, but unfortunately there are plenty of younger metrosexual "male" lawyers who talk that way too, here in L.A. and elsewhere.

    Even the practice of "up-talking" -- i.e. making a statement sound like a question for no reason whatsoever -- is found among "males", lawyers and otherwise, in the generation after mine. These "men" sound like 12-year-old girls.

    The journalism business has basically been steadily declining since Queenie graduated. Decimated worse than any upstate NY mill town in the 1980s. People like Queenie have zero power, and write whatever their editors demand in order to hang on to their small slice of the middle class.

    I saw a chart recently that showed Microsoft and Amazon taking about 3000 H-1Bs each in the most recent year. That's chump change compared to the 20,000 or so that Wipro and Tata take each. I bet Trump the dealmaker could come up with something so that our true blue-chip tech companies can get limited numbers of truly outstanding people and the lepers at the body shops will get zero. An auction would be one way, a minimum wage of something like 3X median overall wages - $150K or so - would be another.

    " the WN loser narrative is that H1-B’s are of dramatically inferior quality"

    Says the smug south asian loser who has never worked with them.

    India doesn't have single elite STEM university in the top 50 globally in any relevant discipline. China has Tsinghua, Japan has Tokyo, Singapore has NUS, Hong Kong has HUST. What does India have, apart from legions of unibrowed peasants who can't control their birthrates?

    The US state department warned its staff that Indian fraud is so pervasive that documentation cannot be trusted. We can't trust identity papers, academic diplomas, etc. We have no clue if the person stepping off the plane is even the same person who applied.

    (A nice Indian fellow in Berkeley even imported sex slaves under the H1B... he was caught smuggling one out of his house, all rolled up in a rug).

    Software quality is notoriously hard to gauge. It is not like painting a house, where you have instant feedback on how a person is doing. Throw a bunch of Indians onto a team and who knows when the manager will see their contributions.

    In short, as a software engineer who has worked with Indians (and who is not American, btw), I see no reason to assume that they are over the median ability of a US graduate. I find them markedly inferior to the Koreans, Japanese and Chinese these days. (China has really boosted its english language training, nullifying one of the main advantages for Indians).

I want every immigration-enthusiast newspaper, government office and law firm to hire lots of people who can't write or speak clear English, who think tense, indicative/conditional and noun-verb agreement aren't important.

    The accusation against Raj Nair appears to be of a #MeToo nature. Everyone from Steve Sailer to Heartiste has exposed how much of a scam this is, given the omission of due process and attention-whoring by post-35 women.

    Yet Peterike, as a 'male feminist', assumes the false accusation against someone is true just because the person is from a race that Peterike does not like (and is being outcompeted by).

    My experience is that H-1B employees are not remarkable. They’re neither superior nor inferior to non-H-1B employees but simply cheaper.
     
    Of course. That is why the entire H1-B program should be abolished altogether, while only letting in the higher-end immigrants that can qualify for an O-1.

    Abolish the program.

    That said, the WN loser narrative is that H1-B's are of dramatically inferior quality (yet are somehow still taking away *their* jobs). This is not true either, and is really just the Dunning-Kruger manifestation of WN inadequacy.

    India doesn’t have single elite STEM university in the top 50 globally in any relevant discipline. China has Tsinghua, Japan has Tokyo, Singapore has NUS, Hong Kong has HUST. What does India have, apart from legions of unibrowed peasants who can’t control their birthrates?

    The US state department warned its staff that Indian fraud is so pervasive that documentation cannot be trusted. We can’t trust identity papers, academic diplomas, etc. We have no clue if the person stepping off the plane is even the same person who applied.

    (A nice Indian fellow in Berkeley even imported sex slaves under the H1B… he was caught smuggling one out of his house, all rolled up in a rug).

    Software quality is notoriously hard to gauge. It is not like painting a house, where you have instant feedback on how a person is doing. Throw a bunch of Indians onto a team and who knows when the manager will see their contributions.

    In short, as a software engineer who has worked with Indians (and who is not American, btw), I see no reason to assume that they are over the median ability of a US graduate. I find them markedly inferior to the Koreans, Japanese and Chinese these days. (China has really boosted its english language training, nullifying one of the main advantages for Indians).

    The journalism business has basically been steadily declining since Queenie graduated. Decimated worse than any upstate NY mill town in the 1980s. People like Queenie have zero power, and write whatever their editors demand in order to hang on to their small slice of the middle class.

    I saw a chart recently that showed Microsoft and Amazon taking about 3000 H-1Bs each in the most recent year. That’s chump change compared to the 20,000 or so that Wipro and Tata take each. I bet Trump the dealmaker could come up with something so that our true blue-chip tech companies can get limited numbers of truly outstanding people and the lepers at the body shops will get zero.

    First, Europe did not necessarily send its best. Most who came were the wretched refuse.

    Second, Europe did collapse into barbarism in the 20th century. I doubt it was the result of the emigrants they lost to the colonies. But collapse they did.

    BS. Developing nations have rightly complained that colonial powers robbed them of their futures. India complains that Britain was responsible for a marked decrease in what its GDP would have been by comparing the before and after effects of British colonization.

    Taking their human resources is just as damaging as taking their natural resources. India's talent, whether native born or their descendants, is needed in India. It is a crime that the UK, US and Canada poach Indian physicians while India itself barely has 0.75 physicians per 1000 people. That is not a zero sum fallacy. That is reality.

    Of course. That is why the entire H1-B program should be abolished altogether, while only letting in the higher-end immigrants that can qualify for an O-1.

    Abolish the program.

    That said, the WN loser narrative is that H1-B's are of dramatically inferior quality (yet are somehow still taking away *their* jobs). This is not true either, and is really just the Dunning-Kruger manifestation of WN inadequacy.

    First, Europe did not necessarily send its best. Most who came were the wretched refuse.

    Second, Europe did collapse into barbarism in the 20th century. I doubt it was the result of the emigrants they lost to the colonies. But collapse they did.

    Zero sum fallacy. Ethno-racial fallacy. Human capital (IQ, bell curve, etc.) fallacy.

    BS. Developing nations have rightly complained that colonial powers robbed them of their futures. India complains that Britain was responsible for a marked decrease in what its GDP would have been by comparing the before and after effects of British colonization.

    Taking their human resources is just as damaging as taking their natural resources. India’s talent, whether native born or their descendants, is needed in India. It is a crime that the UK, US and Canada poach Indian physicians while India itself barely has 0.75 physicians per 1000 people. That is not a zero sum fallacy. That is reality.

    Says the smug south asian loser who has never worked with them.

    India doesn't have single elite STEM university in the top 50 globally in any relevant discipline. China has Tsinghua, Japan has Tokyo, Singapore has NUS, Hong Kong has HUST. What does India have, apart from legions of unibrowed peasants who can't control their birthrates?

    The US state department warned its staff that Indian fraud is so pervasive that documentation cannot be trusted. We can't trust identity papers, academic diplomas, etc. We have no clue if the person stepping off the plane is even the same person who applied.

    (A nice Indian fellow in Berkeley even imported sex slaves under the H1B... he was caught smuggling one out of his house, all rolled up in a rug).

    Software quality is notoriously hard to gauge. It is not like painting a house, where you have instant feedback on how a person is doing. Throw a bunch of Indians onto a team and who knows when the manager will see their contributions.

    In short, as a software engineer who has worked with Indians (and who is not American, btw), I see no reason to assume that they are over the median ability of a US graduate. I find them markedly inferior to the Koreans, Japanese and Chinese these days. (China has really boosted its english language training, nullifying one of the main advantages for Indians).

    I prefer here because my family has been here for 350 years - it's my home.

Starting pay back then was anywhere from $8,000 to $12K. Yes, you read that right, and that was ANNUALLY, not monthly. As demand grew in the early 80’s pay slowly crept up to where you could make a middle-class living in the field; experienced programmers on mainframe biz systems were then making high $20’s to mid 30’s. Obviously, business concerns weren’t going to tolerate any further upward wage movement! They got working to bribe Congress to enact the H1-B visa scam to address their ‘temporary labor shortage.’ That became active in ’91. Needless to say, the bottom quickly fell out of the IT job market. As hundreds of thousands, then millions. of Indians were imported, wage/salary levels stagnated and unemployment in the field grew. Twenty-seven years later, industry STILL has not solved their ‘temporary labor shortage.’ I last worked in IT in 2011 at the age of 58, in a temporary contracting job. That ended and I was never able to find another job or assignment. I had to start collecting SS at age 62. Had no health insurance for seven years until I aged into Medicare.

As hundreds of thousands, then millions. of Indians were imported, wage/salary levels stagnated and unemployment in the field grew. Twenty-seven years later, industry STILL has not solved their 'temporary labor shortage.' I last worked in IT in 2011 at the age of 58, in a temporary contracting job. That ended and I was never able to find another job or assignment. I had to start collecting SS at age 62. Had no health insurance for seven years until I aged into Medicare. THAT is what American employers have in store for every one of this year's college grads.

    Thanks for the responses, no worries on that score, I am very happy and settled where I am. I don't think the US would make the Top 10 of places I would look to live in.

    Glad to hear it – both that you won’t try to move here and that you enjoy where you are.

    I’ve traveled extensively in my years, been to every continent except Antarctica and dozens of countries – there are many places that would equal or even surpass the U.S. as a place to live. I don’t doubt that your home is to you, a nice place. Because its your home.

    I prefer here because my family has been here for 350 years – it’s my home.

    However I also hope that you don’t have hordes of obnoxious foreigners and immigrants lecturing you about how your home has always belong to them and you should stand aside and let them have it.

    Ummm hmm. And I’m 100% certain you would say that a white Briton born in India during the British Raj was “as Indian as Mahatma Gandhi.” Right?
     
    Actually, there are several of these. Over a million, including athletes, politicians, professors, etc.

    Once again, Peterike is making a hard push for the title of World's Stupidest Man.

    Don’t worry. Your claim to the title is secure.

    I am not Indian, you retard. I am a white guy. I don't even like them that much, except that they make WN wiggers lose their shit unlike any other group.

    BTW, Indians are the highest-income ethnic group in the US, and have the highest educational level. I understand that a Trashionalist like you doesn't know how to interpret data, but for others, here is the ranking. Filipinos are second.

    (A nice Indian fellow in Berkeley even imported sex slaves under the H1B… he was caught smuggling one out of his house, all rolled up in a rug).
     
    Yeah, 20 years ago. Plus, debating by anecdote is THE indicator of a 70-IQ. The only people who do that are blacks and WNs like you (two groups of equal intelligence).

    You just can't stand that your extremely simplistic views are false, and since you are the epitome of the Dunning-Kruger effect, you have your typical White Trashionalist meltdown.

    Do you even read the sites you link to? Filipinos were fourth on that list. In any event, I don’t believe the list anyway. I don’t believe that Jews rank below Indians or that Filipinos are even fouth. You uncritically believe anything posted on Wikipedia because you are a stupid ass.

    It references the US Census Bureau. Click on the citation link near each number.

    It is amazing that you are too stupid to even see the citation that g0es to the US Census Bureau, and you also have no alternative source from which to base your 'disagreement' (i.e. your emotional, impotent hissy fit) on.

    Thanks for demonstrating your 70-IQ to us yet again. Your stupidity continues to astound.
