Feds Slam Visa Holders' Bid To 'Leapfrog' Work Permit Line via @Law360

@Law360 "The claims also detail one man's experience of being unable to be with his mother as she underwent cancer treatment in India."

What does that have to do with work permits? Just go back to India. They have jobs too. And you won't have to worry about getting a work permit!
@Law360 "The agency added that it has yet to replace 75 of 105 employees lost to attrition during a concurrent hiring freeze."

Aha, so that is why Doug Rand is prioritizing hiring. USCIS lost most of their rubber stamp army. Impressive that only 30 people stamped 172,000 green cards!
@Law360 Or maybe that is why the 75 USCIS adjudicators quit - Ur Jaddou's rubber stamp directives gave them career ending carpal tunnel syndrome...

⚖️ "Pay to stay" court update ⚖️

It probably helps when the judges assigned to these #sueandsettle cases are @BarackObama appointees...

"The proceedings in the UNNJ case will bear watching as it is possible that up to 1,076 individual F1 students implicated in the scheme may be affected by the result."

"Even if the plaintiffs prevail, it is entirely possible that some, if not most or all, will be found to have committed visa fraud in the individualized proceedings requested."

Or not... DOJ is going to expunge any record of visa fraud as part of the settlement terms. Image

"H1B Only"

Americans need not apply.

@RepJimBanks these are the companies abusing the H1B visa to illegally discriminate against Americans. They hire 100% of their workforce from India.
TechnoGen claims to be a "minority & women owned small business" to qualify for federal contract set-asides. They are exploiting SBA programs designed to benefit minority and female Americans who they then proceed to exclude when hiring.

“Many pro-labor groups say the H-1B visa program enriches companies like Facebook at the expense of American workers”

“Critics say that businesses regularly game the system to pay H-1B visa holders below market wages, both exploiting foreign workers and stacking the deck against American job seekers.”
“Robert Bouchard, who worked for years as a recruiter at IT staffing firms and now consults and podcasts under the name the H-1B Guy, said that he regularly came across resumes that exaggerated or fabricated an H-1B worker’s skills.”

Northwestern Polytechnic in Fremont, CA (Silicon Valley bodyshop central) is at the beating heart of the Day 1 CPT scam.

"Spending millions on foreign recruiters, Northwestern Polytechnic University enrolls 99% of its students — more than 6,000 overall last year — from overseas, with little regard for their qualifications. It has no full-time, permanent faculty"

"The school issues grades that are inflated, or simply made up, so that academically unqualified students can keep their visas, along with the overseas bank loans that allow the students to pay their tuition."

Actually, this is not your home. You are legally a citizen of India, the country where you were born.

"Kandori has been able to live here thanks to her father's long-term work visa, which he obtained more than a decade ago to get a tech job in Research Triangle Park."

There is no such thing as a "long-term work visa" for people like your dad who accept low wage jobs for decades.
"My Wake County community is one of many across the country that has flourished because of immigrant workers..." @DeborahRossNC said.

At the cost of how many North Carolinians who lost their jobs because they were replaced by foreign workers? Shame on you Congresswoman Ross.

Eight out of the eleven items on @DHSgov's immigration agenda involve undoing Trump rules.

@POTUS you really hate American workers don't you? Is that why one of your first actions was to repeal "Buy American and Hire American"?

On the plus side, @DHSgov published @SecMayorkas' endorsement of the EB-5 final rule doubling the minimum investment. It's good to see the government is committed to EB-5 reform.
Yale professor says "The Biden administration seems intent on continuing the Trump administration's effort to revise the H-1B program in terms of how they select individuals, going away from a lottery system to a salary-based system... That's going to be controversial"
