U.S. and foreign companies have asked for H-1B visas to import 275,000 foreign graduates for white-collar jobs, according to an April 1 statement from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency.

The requests are part of the annual H-1B work-visa process that is run by the USCIS at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and which is used by Fortune 500 companies to replace skilled American professionals with blocs of imported graduates.

The government process of importing H-1B workers is continuing despite the huge wave of layoffs that have hit many white-collar workers in the auto industry, in Silicon Valley, and even in hospitals.

Congress gives companies 85,000 H-1B visas each year. So the 275,000 applications will be put into a lottery and picked for the 85,000 visas by luck, not by skill or salaries.

The 85,000 new visa workers will be allowed to begin their reserved multiyear jobs in October, regardless of the unemployment rate for American graduates. Companies are not obliged to interview or hire Americans before they import H-1B workers. Universities, non-profit hospitals, and research centers are allowed to hire as many H-1Bs as they wish.

So far, President Donald Trump has not intervened to stop the white-collar jobs giveaway, despite his Inauguration Day promise of “Hire American,” and despite his weak polling support among college graduates in suburbia.

The H-1B program is just part one of many visa-worker programs that keep a population of up to 1.5 million foreign white-collar workers in the starter jobs that are needed by U.S. graduates to get into a field and to gain the experience necessary for promotion. For example, the multiyear H-1B visas allow roughly 900,000 foreign contract workers to hold white-collar jobs in the United States.

It’s April 1st. The greatest joke played on the American people will be by the US government as it prepares to select 85,000 H-1B visa applications today via the lottery, at a time of record level unemployment & a global pandemic.

318 people are talking about this

The agency released little data about the people being imported for the jobs or their claimed skill levels:

Nearly 275,000 unique registrations were submitted during the initial registration period. Roughly 46% of all registrations were for prospective beneficiaries with U.S. advanced degrees. There were more than 40,000 registration accounts created, and nearly 81% of submitted registrations were for potential beneficiaries from India (67.7%) and China (13.2%).

Officials are releasing less information about the H-1B workers than they did in 2017. For example, the agencies are no longer releasing the addresses where the H-1Bs are scheduled to work. The address data for the 2017 H-1Bs was released, and it allowed groups to show how many H-1Bs were working in the office buildings of Fortune 500 countries.

The USCIS press release also did not describe the skill levels of the H-1B workers, nor the promised pay levels.

In 2017, the federal data showed that employers asked for 83,307 workers for jobs in New York. Just 65 percent were rated as “Entry-Level” or “Qualified” workers. Just 11.4 percent were rated as “Experienced,” and a mere six percent were rated as “Fully Competent.”

The 2017 data also showed that 52 percent of the 2017 H-1B workers were supposed to be paid less than $80,000 for jobs in New York.



USCIS did not say how many H-1B workers are being sought by companies that lease their H-1B workers to Fortune 500 companies.

This staffing business has converted the H-1B program into the primary supplier of gig workers to the white-collar technology, banking, and insurance sectors. This massive supply of contingent workers raises stock values by lowering salaries that are paid to millions of American professionals.

Many of the H-1B applicants are foreign graduates who are already working in American jobs via the huge Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) programs. These master degree programs allow colleges and universities — elite, average, and low-quality storefront colleges — to provide access to work permits to almost any foreigner who pays their tuition fees.

Forty-six percent of the 275,000 H-1B applicants hold “U.S. advanced degrees,” according to USCIS. Those numbers suggest that up to 126,000 resident OPT and CPT workers are asking for H-1B visas.

Most of the graduates in the OPT and CPT programs hope to win slots in the H-1B programs because it allows them to get better jobs and hugely valuable green cards.

The USCIS noted that most of the 275,000 applicants are Indians.

The 67.7 percent number indicates that 187,000 applicants are from India, underlining the scale of the U.S.-India Outsourcing Economy that has pushed a huge number of American graduates out of decent jobs in the technology, banking, and insurance industries. Nationwide, up to one million Indians hold white-collar jobs in the United States via the H-1B, OPT, CPT, L-1, H4EAD, and TN visa programs.

The growing role of Indian workers and managers in American offices has sparked widespread charges of favoritism and numerous lawsuits claiming discrimination against American graduates

Indian hiring managers will sell jobs to Indian job applicants for $5,000 to $10,000, one Indian H-1B told Breitbart News, describing the lucrative exchange of enormous peer pressure on honest Indian managers. “If you are honest, you can’t survive — you will become a bottleneck in the chain. … [Senior managers] will fire you.”

Health insurance execs discriminated against Americans by hiring more-costly Indian H-1Bs, says lawsuit.
The case spotlights the tech sector’s preference for compliant Indian contractors over indep. US professionals.
So more H-1Bs = less tech innovationhttp://bit.ly/2vIHAOp 

Lawsuit: Managers Violated Americans’ Civil Rights by Hiring H-1B Workers

A group of Americans will present evidence to a jury that their employer discriminated against them by hiring expensive Indian H-1B workers.


The work visas will not be sent to the lottery winners for several weeks after the companies submit petition packages with justifications for each visa. The deadline for submitting the petitions is June 30.

Those justifications include a so-called Labor Condition Application (LCA) document approved by the Department of Labor. The LCAs describe the intended job for each H-1B worker. Business advocates use the LCA process to claim that imported workers do not displace Americans.

But the LCA process does not require the companies to show that Americans cannot be hired for the job. Also, the LCA documents are rubber-stamped by the department. A department spokesman told Breitbart News:

Under current law, “the Secretary of Labor shall review such an [LCA] application only for completeness and obvious inaccuracies” and, unless the application is incomplete or obviously inaccurate, the Department must certify the LCA within seven days of receiving the employer’s application. [Emphasis added]

The current head of DHS, Chad Wolf, formerly served as a lobbyist for NASSCOM, which is the major trade group for the U.S. and Indian outsourcing companies that imports most of the H-1B gig workers. The group’s mix of Indian and U.S. companies use the H-1B program to extract salaries and wealth from the American college graduate class, and they split the gains among both countries’ executives and investors, plus the visa workers, their managers, and India’s government.

NASSCOM has additional lobbyists, according to federal records in Washington, DC. They have included John Engler, the former GOP governor of Michigan, and Spencer Abraham, a former GOP senator from Michigan. Abraham lost his Senate seat in 2000 after opposing a pro-American immigration reform bill. Since then, Michigan’s immigrant population has helped elect Democrats to Abraham’s former seat.

American professionals have organized to lobby against the H-1B program via the American Workers CoalitionU.S. TechWorkersProUSworkers, and White Collar Workers of America.

The new TechsUnite.US site was created to help U.S. graduates anonymously collaborate while shielded by encryption.

In turn, these groups are backed up by a few sites that track the scale and location of the outsourcing industry in each legislator’s district. The sites include SAITJ.org and H1BFacts.com. “The scope of this thing is really unbelievable,” said one researcher.

Other sites document the conflicts created by diverse foreign business practices in the United States. The non-political MyVisaJobs.com site also provides much information about H-1B outsourcing and green card rewards in multiple industries.

Author's note at the end of each post: -"Your biggest problem is so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible is the blueprint of Faith. The New Testament has given us God’s kind of faith and the authority to perform miracles through faith and the name of Jesus. No matter what level of cancer you are; you can be healed by your faith and the word of God. Jesus did not care in what stage of death were the three people whom he raised from the dead. He just called life on them. Let see how He did it. "The first time he invaded the realm of death it was for the daughter of Jairus; an official in Jerusalem. She was “just” dead. The second time it was the son of a widow in Nain who was “one day” dead, and the third time it was Lazarus; brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany who was “very” dead after three days. HE raised them “all.” It doesn’t matter how big is your problem, and how hopeless you are because Jesus is the resurrection and the light."-Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Putting Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antarctica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome, and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government is imminent and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian and believe this because this is what was predicted 2000 years ago in the Bible, or you are not a Christian but you read all these articles and connect the dots to notice that the satanic world government is their agenda and with President Trump, we had 4 years and this was God's mercy on us. Their Global Governance 2025 is terribly close. Their Green New Deal's 12 years matches the agenda 2030. The immigration and devouring of America and Europe all go according to the blueprint of one world satanic government. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. Why are we, born-again Christians happy and calm? Why do we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation, knowing that we will be chased and prosecuted for NOT taking the mark of the beast? Because we are dedicated to the Kingdom. "Your kingdom come, Your will be done." 1- We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. 2- We believe the Bible is the word of God. 3-We believe God had so much loved us that HE sent his only begotten son to die on the cross for our sins. Through his blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4- We believe the price of our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life is paid by the blood of Jesus. We have all these gifts in us when we are born again by GRACE. By his stripes, we are healed 2000 years ago. 5-We believe by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Holy Spirit who will dwell in us and will reveal Himself through dreams, visions, speeches, videos, books to communicate with us, immediately after our Salvation. 6- We believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We believe born-again believers receive the same DNA as Jesus Christ with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the Apostles performed the same signs and wonders as our Lord Jesus did. They did it through "faith," and The Lord will accomplish the same miracles through us after we accept him as our savior. 7-We condemn the religion and many fake prophets of the Vatican (not all of our Catholic brothers and sisters) who deceived Christians for centuries and hid the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to keep themselves in power. We welcome all denominations. 8- We believe that a born-again Christian never dies and the moment his life on earth is terminated, he is promoted to heaven. There is no death for us. We just transit to our new dimension which is filled with immerse, joy, love, peace, and glory of God. All people who have met Jesus in a visit, vision, dream, or have died for a short time, left their body and came back, know how does this experience feel. It is a divine relief and joy. Therefore, to answer the above question (why are we happy?), our answer is, we can happily die right now. In fact, we would love to die yesterday and go home but each one of us has a mission and purpose that the Holy Spirit has revealed to us after our born-again experience. For the sake of that mission, although we know our day of prosecution will come, we are joyful and relaxed in the spirit. Because we save people by preaching the Gospel and bringing them to Jesus. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved. He will reveal himself to you. Your life will dramatically change. Your marriage, your health (especially addiction), your finances, and all areas of your life will experience this extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
