Let's track which Congressmen vote for H1B loopholes.

The H1B program should be stopped. Full stop.

We'll have to get rid of Cocaine Mitch and Cross Dresser Lindsey if we ever want that to stop.

Uh...make H1B1 and issue for WHOM? The voters? Right.

They always have been better off sneaking in riders into unrelated legislation in the middle of the night, not fighting for this out in the open.

Some sort of h1b will live. Us education doesn't produce enough smart people, they product athletes.

Edison , and bulk of scientist are from other countries. Bulk of invention and creativity is done by immegrants. That's how us keeps edge, by importing smart people and selling product they make back to their own countries.

Great, let's shut all our doors to the vast number of foreigners pounding down our doors at every University from MIT to Stanford to Technical College of Upper Sandusky to study STEM.

No foreigners are pounding down the doors to Mumbai Very Most Excellent Technical School or Lucky 88 Dragon Computing Machine School of Shanghai.

The main problem with K-12 is the dumbing down because of our insistence on equality. In most schools around the world, if you fall down after Algebra, everyone else moves on. They don't allow half the class to wait months until the dummies grasp the square of the hypotenuse.

Edison


Edison was born in the USA, just like Eli Whitney (Cotton Gin), Sam Colt (Interchangeable Machined Parts), Henry Ford (Mass Produced Vehicles), Gene Krantz (Apollo Program), Chuck Peddle (6502 Processor in first microcomputers), Bill Mensch (same), Percy Spencer (microwave ovens), and Wozniak (Actual Design of Apple).

Everybody that knows anything about the IT industry knows 90% of H1Bs education and experience consists of "Windows 2000 for Dummies". They are hired because they are cheap, not good. When they run into a problem, they call Cousin Habib in Karachi who owns a computer repair / cell phone accessories booth in the Maandi.

Boeing's failure with the 787 and then Starliner proves what happens when you rely on H1Bs for anything more than basic tech support.

As I suspected, this was discussed in my standup meeting this morning. I just listened. My peers are kind of freaking out about what'll happen with the spin off company. Also aren't sure if this apply to them or only new applicants.

Yeah, that was going around at work a couple of hours ago too haha... Doesn't look like it'll affect anyone I work with:

Sec. 3. Scope of Suspension and Limitation on Entry. (a) The suspension and limitation on entry pursuant to section 2 of this proclamation shall apply only to any alien who:

(i) is outside the United States on the effective date of this proclamation;

(iii) does not have an official travel document other than a visa (such as a transportation letter, an appropriate boarding foil, or an advance parole document) that is valid on the effective date of this proclamation or issued on any date thereafter that permits him or her to travel to the United States and seek entry or admission.

Yeah the list of Indian inventors is endless. That’s why when you go there the streets are filled with amazing inventions Athletic Americans can only dream of created by the brilliantly educated Indian ppl.

Most Indians I work with can’t manage to QA my code, let alone actually come up with their own shit.

Everybody at work liked that move. Even some former H1B holders who are citizens now. Funny how the perspective changes.

Translation: I see the writing on the wall and I can't go to VCs with my slide deck full of how we'd leverage H1-B workers anymore.
