    Indian Lawmakers Demand Trump Reverse H-1B Crackdown

    Indian Lawmakers Demand Trump Reverse H-1B Crackdown



    16 Jun 2017

    Ahead of a meeting between with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, lawmakers are demanding President Donald Trump drop his executive order calling for a legal review of the H-1B visa.

    In April, Trump’s signed an executive order targeting abuse by U.S. companies, Breitbart Texas reported, calling for the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Labor Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to conduct a “full legal analysis” of all the problems negatively impacting American workers in the H-1B visa system.

    As Trump and Modi are expected to meet in Washington, D.C., India’s top lawmakers want the H-1B legal review dropped entirely.
    India Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma requested Modi tell Trump to “reverse” his H-1B crackdown.

    “He should demand and obtain credible and firm assurances from US President Donald Trump that he will reverse his decision which discriminates against Indian professionals… He cannot return empty-handed,” Sharma said.

    “We do not want mere statements and photographs,” Sharma said. “We want answers and also how the Prime Minister responds and registers our protest over the disparaging observations made about the Republic of India recently when US decided to walk out of the Paris (climate) pact. We will wait for the Prime Minister’s response or reaction.”

    India’s outsourcing and H-1B visa industry, which relies on U.S. companies firing Americans and replacing them with foreign workers, have been rattled by the mere prospect of changes to the unfettered globalization business model.

    As Breitbart Texas reported, in 2017 SEC filings, the India-based outsourcing firm Infosys, which is responsible for the displacement of thousands of American workers, seemed worried about their future.

    “An increase in anti-outsourcing sentiments in certain countries in which we operate, including the United States and the United Kingdom, may lead to the enactment of restrictive legislations that could limit companies in those countries from outsourcing work to us, or could inhibit our ability to staff client projects in a timely manner thereby impacting our revenue and profitability,” Infosys executives wrote in the SEC filing.

    Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa and allowed to stay for up to six years. That number has ballooned to potentially hundreds of thousands each year, as universities and non-profits are exempt from the cap. With more entering the U.S. through the visa, Americans are often replaced and forced to train their foreign replacements.

    Outsourcing Firm Rattled by Trump ‘America First’ Agenda

    Outsourcing Firm Rattled by Trump ‘America First’ Agenda



    15 Jun 2017 Washington, D.C.

    The prospect of President Trump’s altering the U.S. legal immigration system and the H-1B visa has one of the largest outsourcing firms rattled.

    In SEC filings obtained by Quartz, Infosys executives panicked as to the shifting views of Americans on immigration and trade, as well as the potential changes to the H-1B visa that the Trump Administration could enact.

    Infosys, one of the largest outsourcing firms, is responsible for mass lay-offs of Americans at a multitude of U.S. companies. Those pink-slipped are generally given two options: Train their foreign replacement and receive severance, or refuse for nothing in return.

    Though the firm has outsourced with little interruption for years, 2017 SEC filings depict a different picture under the Trump Administration.

    “An increase in anti-outsourcing sentiments in certain countries in which we operate, including the United States and the United Kingdom, may lead to the enactment of restrictive legislations that could limit companies in those countries from outsourcing work to us, or could inhibit our ability to staff client projects in a timely manner thereby impacting our revenue and profitability,” Infosys executives wrote in the most recent SEC filing.

    The executives also blasted negative media coverage and the changing views of Americans towards the H-1B visa and outsourcing.

    “Media coverage and public scrutiny of our business practices, policies and actions has increased dramatically over the past twelve months, particularly negative and in some cases, inaccurate posts or comments in the media, including through the use of social media,” the SEC filing continued.

    Every year, more than 100,000 foreigners are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa and are allowed to stay for up to six years. Most recently, that number has ballooned to potentially hundreds of thousands each year, as universities and non-profits are exempt from the cap. With more entering the U.S. through the visa, Americans are often replaced.

    Trump’s executive order targeting abuse by U.S. companies, as Breitbart Texas reported, calls for the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Labor Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to conduct a “full legal analysis” of all the problems negatively impacting American workers in the H-1B visa system.

    Most recently, Breitbart Texas reported how in a recent TimesJobs survey, 44 percent of the 800 employers polled said American tech firms would “shift back jobs from India to U.S.” if the Trump Administration imposes major reforms to the H-1B visa program.

    Oh no, we don't set our immigration policies based on "demands" from other countries that costs our people jobs!! OH HELL NO!!!

    India’s outsourcing and H-1B visa industry, which relies on U.S. companies firing Americans and replacing them with foreign workers, have been rattled by the mere prospect of changes to the unfettered globalization business model.
    This is totally wrong, how rude, how inconsiderate of American Workers, you want to line your pockets at the expense of American Workers using our H1B visas system?? You're out of your minds!! Only foolish, silly, treasonous and evil politicians would ever allow such nonsense in our country, and President Donald Trump is not one of them.

    YES WE WOULD!!! After all, it's mostly a matter of logistics.



    Load 'em up, move 'em out, keep 'em out.

    It's not complicated. It's very simple.
