The Indians are probably right on the technical applicability of that particular bill. It’s mostly the companies hiring slaves from Mexico and the like, that are getting the enormous amounts of federal welfare.
The tech Industry is completely saturated with h1bs though there are lots of totally qualified yet unemployed American engineers ... Including me ... Time for the h1bs to go home
Indians come here legally as programmers and constitute a small percent of the population. The opposition to their jobs comes from the far left - Ralph Nader, Denis Kucinich and now Obama. This is a red herring intended to distract us from the real immigration threat which happens to be from illegals crossing over from Mexico. The left does not want to oppose illegals but wants to pretend as though they are doing something about immigration. So they raise the bogey of H1-Bs once in a while.
