Skip to comments.How the University of California exploited a visa loophole to move tech jobs to India
Posted on 01/07/2017 7:35:58 AM PST by george76
Using a visa loophole to fire well-paid U.S. information technology workers and replace them with low-paid immigrants from India is despicable enough when its done by profit-making companies such as Southern California Edison and Walt Disney Co.
But the latest employer to try this stunt sets a new mark in what might be termed job laundering. Its the University of California. Experts in the abuse of so-called H-1B visas say UC is the first public university to send the jobs of American IT staff offshore. Thats not a distinction UC should wear proudly.
UC is training software engineers at the same time theyre outsourcing their own software engineers. What message are they sending their own students?
By sending IT jobs abroad, UC is undermining its own mission, which includes preparing California students to serve the high-tech industry.
Letters went out to UC President Janet Napolitano from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) and Lofgren, who urged Napolitano to reverse the outsourcing plan and suspend the HCL contract until UC can thoroughly examine the public policy issues raised by the plan.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) pointedly reminded Napolitano that UC received about $8.5 billion in federal funding in 2014-15, and said she was unhappy to hear that the funds would be used to replace Californian IT workers with foreign workers or labor performed abroad. She added, this is not the way to cut costs.
UC President Janet Napolitano seems to be trying to dodge responsibility for this policy. Although she vowed to crack down on H-1B abuses as secretary of Homeland Security, a job she held from 2009 to 2013, shes been utterly silent about UCs abuse of that very program on her watch.

Globalism -> Socialism -> Communism. That’s the Marxist plan.
Welcome to cali-cutta?
The california government seems hellbent on replacing all of the Americans with foreign nationals and illegals.
Just goes to show that the radical socialist democrats are still pissed over Lincoln taking their slaves away from them.
I guess they were unable to find any IT skills around the UC Berkeley campus.
FIRE DHS SECY JEH JOHNSON (right)---failure to protect ntl security
FIRE LEON RODRIGUEZ USCIS head (left)---mismanaging visa enforcement
REFERENCE---Obama's hand-picked henchman, USCIS' Leon Rodrigues, is rubber-stamping felons and diseased illegals into the country. Rodriguez also oversees the infamous EB-5 visa program. Under Obama/Rodrigues' purview---EB-5's are said to involve major threats to US national security:
NEED TO KNOW----ARE OBAMA/RODRIGUES SELLING US CITIZENSHIP TO:
<><> (a) MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS,
<><>(b) ISIS TERRORISTS,
<><> (c) FOREIGNERS SEEKING THE OVERTHROW OF THE US GOVT.
Rodriguez's confirmation hearings revealed he was a board member of Casa Maryland---a Third World pressure group pushing for unlimited immigration on behalf of foreign governments. Rodrigues also has connections to foreign pressure groups across the nation.
REFERENCE Circa 2012, Sen Charles Grassley (Repub-Iowa) exposed the DHS-USCIS visa program--Sen Grassley said ICE identified key vulnerabilities in EB-5 visas:
1) Export of sensitive technology/economic espionage.
2) Use by foreign government agents/espionage.
3) Use by terrorists.
4) Investment fraud by regional center.
5) Investment fraud by investors.
6) Fraud conspiracies by investors and regional center.
7) Illicit finance/money laundering.
Rodriguez's expedited visa consideration came despite warnings from career USCIS officials that applicants had (1) forged paperwork, (2) tried to conceal the sources of their investment, and, (3) in one case, had ties to a child pornography business.

If snowflakes taking Information Technology classes at UC had a concept of return on investment, why would they be attending a school teaching how to be a programmer that the school would never hire because they prefer cheap labor?
This is just one example of many.
“On Jan. 17, three days before he leaves office, Obama is expected to release a set of regulations that will further expand the H-1B program.”
Once again, Big Nurse Napolitano lashes out at the Americans she hates so much.
How did this freak ever get to be Governor of Arizona? Much less Secretary of the DHS, supposedly the most important Federal police agency.
So their medical center is losing money because obamacare forced them to take more Medicaid clients, and their response is to fire American employees and taxpayers that pay for obamacare. Socialism doesn’t work!
California the state that keeps taking.
Wait until Napolitano finds out about the power
Trump has after Jan 20. Sanctuary locations might not be the only ones feeling the pinch.
Feinstein says she is disappointed-—but does nothing concrete. Trump will demand money be returned. It is a clear contract case, IMO. Money was sent to University to hire people-—NOT to hire people that don’t live in America.
Agreed. This is something that needs to be said over and over. Fortunately, the average Joe seems to be catching on. After all, Trump won.
And I'd add that the Communism mentioned here is not the "pure communism" that the sociology professors like to talk about.
It is more like communism/fascism of the type seen in the old Soviet Union, or in the EU today. Communist in that everybody is in one big commune. Fascist in that the globalist elites make all the decisions.
This one is easy to correct. Cut a chunk Federal funding for every job they outsource overseas.
How much of this went to studies of something like the effect of a diet entirely made up of processed food on heath or a comparison of the writings of two obscure 19th century authors? Get federal money out of most university "research."
Agree. Gov’t out of education, and out of most research. I’d make an exception for basic/fundamental research in medicine and the hard sciences.
BTW, isn’t it interesting when the libs turn on each other?
