US Tech Workers just released an interesting video that you should watch.
There is an article over at dice today.
They won’t publish my comments disputing their propaganda, so I will post it here.
I am going to send you directly to all of the records for 2020 H-1B Approvals, NOT H-1B applications, but if you want to see them, I can write a similar report as well.
I’m sending you to this data because it is the official data showing initial and continuing approvals and those declined as well.
The left link is to the H-1B Approvals / Denials database
The right link is to the H-1B Applications database
You will notice when you look at the links above, that the data can sometimes be spelled in different ways, so you need to look at all of them.
As for the H-1B data or the H-1B approval data declining, this is what the data shows.
You can click here to run the report I used to produce that.
China. Looking back at what my CIS colleagues Dan Cadman and Jessica Vaughan and I have written over the years about foreign students, it is clear that only China has created serious national security problems for us (see here, here, and here). It, alone among the three, has created and funded an organization to keep their students in line politically (the Confucius Institutes) and it has, because of the size of its student delegation created more DHS-documented drop-outs than any other nation. We have also touched on the hard-to-handle question of academic cheating by some of these students.
We do not hear about any significant theft of our government or business secrets by migrants from India or Mexico (there may be some of this, however); that appears to be a Chinese specialty.
A more rare, and more expensive, way to enter the United States on a government mission is the use of the laxly administered EB-5 (immigrant investors) program. This used to require an investment of $500,000 (now $900,000) in a DHS-approved, but not guaranteed program, and it leads, years later, to a set of green cards for the investor and his or her family. While most of the fraud in the program is private-sector in nature (with many Chinese as the victims), the only alleged misuse of the program for spying purposes among the three nations known to me has featured a Chinese investor buying under-water surveillance devices.
India. The Indian establishment has used the H-1B program, for college-grad foreign workers, to enhance its private sector — rather than the public-sector approach of the Chinese.
In a way that I think is without parallel, India has created a bunch of India-based firms that serve as middlemen for U.S. companies wanting to use relatively inexpensive Indian workers in the H-1B program to cut costs, and deny jobs to U.S. workers. These are rent-a-programmer operations, such as Tata and Infosys, which provide IT talent, almost all of it on the H-1B program, to U.S. firms. These are the so-called outsourcing companies that use a high proportion of the H-1B slots; when hiring, they employ 97 percent to 99 percent of their workers from their own country.
In fact, the discrimination by these firms is done on more than nation-of-origin lines, it includes bias in favor of young, male workers from the southern (and more Hindu) part of the nation, as we and others have reported. There have even been news accounts that suggest that the Indian caste system has taken hold in some hiring decisions by these Indian firms.
And though there is no known study of the subject, we keep hearing from U.S. citizens in the IT world that most of the human resources people in the industry seem to have Indian names; some of these are in the United States (probably on H-1B visas) and some are doing their work, I am told, from India.
The state of Texas got a contractor to do the contact tracing, a $295 million, 27-month contract that was rushed into place by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The Contractor can call it a Case even if there is no occurrence of the virus. A probable case definition is a “not confirmed case” but it is now considered an official case. Deaths are also inflated because they now no longer need to have a COVID-19 Lab test to consider it a Covid death. You can now count cases that have 2 symptoms like a headache and shortness of breath, or a combination of several symptoms that count towards this classification. Since all the residents of Collin county are in the first box, a further 2 minor symptoms, such as if you have a subjective headache and fever (guessed, not measured), You would be considered a “case”.
In May the Epidemiology department at the Health department, reported on the cases but now the Contractor will take over this reporting of numbers.
The Contractor has no medical expertise. They are a tech company with 147 employees in India.https://www.localnewsz.com/news/inflated-covid-19-cases-to-17-times-actual-rate
It is bad enough that the State of Texas will not hire Veterans and Americans like myself and prefers to use Texas Taxpayer Revenue to hire non-immigrant guest workers to work at places like the Texas Workforce Commission where they are supposed to help Texans like myself that need employment.
It is even worse when we see that our very own Attorney General does it as well.
But this is completely ridiculous.
For 295 million, I could have formed a company and hired 147 American, Texans, and Veterans that desperately need work and paid them a salary of $70,000.00 each which works out to a decent living for Those hired and I’ll guarantee you we would have questioned the reporting that inflated the numbers described above.
I was damned near homeless many times between 2003 and 2017.
Except for family and friends, I would have been.
One day out of the blue, the VA agreed to lend me the money to buy my little house and I love it.
But I can’t afford it without work and I can’t find work that will allow me to pay for it, and I’m not willing to give up and take a brain dead job because I still have a lot of piss and vinegar and passion about doing what I can to help America realize that we are destroying our citizens future by sending their jobs to other countries and importing non-immigrant guest workers to take their jobs at the same time.
How serious am I?
Lets put it this way.
For $116,500 I can pay off my house and do nothing but develop the systems to show what is happening.
Or for $65,000 I can buy a small piece of land and put one of these on it and do the same thing.
I’m willing either way, but as they say in Maine, I sure don’t know how to get there from here.
Two prominent Democrats in the Senate are questioning how meatpacking companies could justify exporting record amounts to China in April while warning of a shortage of pork and beef across the United States.
Editor’s note: The major meatpackers in the US are foreign-owned, or they are stateless multinationals. Their warnings of meat shortages while exporting more to China are another reason that they shouldn’t be trusted.
The office of foreign labor certification releases an annual report that shows the top 10 lists.
One of them is by occupation.
Lets take a look at the combined BLS OES data and the BLS H-1B data to see if there is any future in any of those jobs for our American citizens that want to prove that they too are the best and brightest our country has to offer.
There will be those that say this does not prove anything because they are only applications, and not actual jobs.
To that I would respond that I will be adding that data next.
My question for you, the reader of this article is twofold:
- Does this concern you?
- Will you discuss this with your political representatives at the federal, state, county, and community level?
After all, it is your families future as Americans in America and the ability for them to provide for their family that we are talking about, is it not?
