China's highly skilled workers in the United States have long been a contributing force to the country's economy, but obtaining a work visa for their spouses has always been difficult. Now the US is proposing to change that.
The congressional-mandated quota for H-1B visas is 65,000 for the fiscal year 2015 beginning Oct 1. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will award 20,000 more H-1B visas to those with a master's degree or higher degrees from US educational institutions. China has the second-highest number of citizens receiving H-1B visas.
"We must do more to retain and attract world-class talent to the United States and these regulations put us on a path to doing that." said US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. "These actions promise to unleash more of the extraordinary contributions that immigrants have always made to America's innovation economy."

Open those borders, baby!!!!
Keep them pouring in, so that they can assist in the fundamental transformation of America.
And 21 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed. One out 8 American men between the ages of 25 to 54 is unemployed. So why do we need more workers?
This is insanity, no other country on earth imports workers in the midst of an economic and unemployment crisis F.U. U.S. chamber of commerce. I’m pretty much over the USA and its screwed up politics.
Oh goodie. They can do all of those jobs that Americans have given up on finding. Let’s see, big business supports Common Core which is guaranteed to tank US academic achievement to new lows, especially in STEM skills, then they want more H1B visas so they can hire more foreigners because they can’t find qualified Americans.
What’s up with that?
Cheap serf labor. Those here on H1-B visas are sponsored by their employer. If they lose their job, they must leave the country. The employer has much more control over the employee on a temporary work visa. They are virtual serfs—just the way business likes them.
What's next with this? The RINO globalist corporate elitist power whores could cut green cards by 25% and get 50% more foreign workers to do jobs US citizens would and could do.
You’re being replaced.
we’ve got 17-22% unemployment... and they’re still bringing in people to take jobs from Americans
and now they’re going to bring their families as well
why do we still listen to these people??
“why do we still listen to these people??”
Because they control the media and education establishments and most of your fellow citizens are too lazy/stupid to dig deeper.
“Keep them pouring in, so that they can assist in the fundamental transformation of America.”
Don’t get me started. The media keeps pushing the quaint notion that the immigration debate is all about unskilled Hispanic laborers. Meanwhile it’s the Indians and Chinese coming to this country on H1-B visas and taking all the hi-tech jobs who are really destroying the job market.
I’m an IT consultant and I’ve been out of work for about two years, but I refuse to work for foreign-owned IT companies. Insiders tell me this Asian Invasion is destroying the entire IT consulting industry, and the last interview I went on, at a major corporate headquarter, I didn’t see one white American male. Not surprisingly I didn’t get the job, despite 20 years’ experience in the field they were hiring for. One can only imagine what criteria I failed to satisfy.
A related point: all these work visa immigrants from India & Asia now bring their families over, or have anchor babies here. They raise their kids to be workaholics and compulsive over-achievers. Then they put them into the taxpayer funded public school system, where they quickly rise to the top, because that’s what the school system rewards. So naturally they win all the spelling bees and other pointless academic competitions. Or they learn to play one song over & over on the violin until it’s a perfect, yet expressionless, robotic performance that will open all kinds of doors. Then they go on to get all the choice college seats, all the scholarships, and eventually all the good jobs. But this one dimensional single mindedness shows in the workplace, where they have a total lack of creative thinking or independent motivation.
So yes indeed, they are part of the fundamental cultural transformation of America. I’m not a parent, but I would rather have happy, well-adjusted, well-rounded kids with dirty faces and messy rooms, than ones who are forced to memorize dictionaries and be perfect little ethnic stereotypes just to get ahead.
And don’t let anybody kid you about how hard they work: when the boss goes home, they don’t do a lick of work.
