The amount of misinformation in the comment section is shocking yet excepted of the uninformed public. If such people knew the facts they wouldn't blurt nonsense.

1) H1B is a high-skilled labour force. Doctors, nurses, lawyers, engineers are all recipients of this visa. These people are not doing the blue-collared jobs as a lot of people think - the very reason why Trump's America First approach didn't reduce the no. of recipients of this visa or in his recent ban let those folks in and let the permanent residents out.  However, there are different levels of them- a graduate from MIT / Stanford/ Hopkins works on a H1B and so does someone who does regular IT tech stuff from an Indian consulting company. The latter kind are definitely annoying even to the meritorious grads who go get a prestigious degree from a US university and have to compete for a "lottery" to get the same visa. Their numbers have Indeed reduced in the recent years due to the Trump administration - which is good in my opinion. A lot of the low level IT stuff can be done by Americans within the country.

2) One has to prove to the immigration offices (USCIS) that the work is a) requires a university level skill and b) the company cannot find an American replacement. The time has gone when you could be a simple "programmer" and get such a visa. America has a shortage of "quality" STEM graduates and if you are unaware then you are not qualified enough to debate on this issue.

3) Most H1B in tech make fat salaries which are much higher than the average American standards. Folks who like to demean Indians should go check out the "Median Household Income by Race" within the US. An Indian makes more than "any" other ethnic group in the country - even more than Whites or East Asians.  Some people will have an issue if an H1B is paid 5k-10k less than an American. But how many know the costs a company has to incur to sponsor an H1B worker?

4) I was watching on Fox recently how some people had a problem with Chinese attending their elite universities but then going back to China and building successful companies. When Indians on the other hand decide to stay back and spend, work, build and grow in the US then again the public complains. Today, China has become the biggest competitor of America. Because of this very attitude, we've lost the smartest people to China, instead of retaining them. And guess what, it's not just the manufacturing sector anymore, China is beating us on advanced technological fields like quantum computing and AI! Instead of kicking them, we should have thought of retaining them and showing some level of respect, instead of calling them out.

H1B is an amazing program and really retains the brightest minds in America.  It's competitive and sets the bar high - back in the day you could be a computer operator and get a H1B, not anymore. Tomorrow, it might be harder to get one with being a software developer.

America and Americans both benefit from it. The S&P500 and FAANG are currently killing it and check how many H1Bs are working there. There are some flaws in the program ,  but they are minor and constantly worked upon by the USCIS.

PS: me and wife, who's an American, are both in technology and I know this inside-out. Stay safe, stay blessed, everything will be okay soon. God Bless America. Peace ✌️

PPS: I'd like to make it clear that the above remarks are based on the experiences of my friends and relatives. I have personally never gone through this program but we all know that there isn't a dearth of such recipients. I still feel that I can speak in this matter since the extremely negative attitude that folks have for them is unwarranted. I agree there are some flaws in the system and we definitely need changes. So let's work on that together. There are a lot of smart people on this program working for Google, NIH, Amazon, FDA, DARPA, etc. who are all on this program and we need to retain them. For cheap labor, who exploit the system and the citizens, we need amendments for them.

If you do see companies misrepresenting job skills or roles, or certain ethnic groups unfairly preferring their own kind, then please do not hesitate to let the USCIS know about it! You might be correct or biased but the authorities can verify it - that's their job. Doing this just doesn't help Americans but also the genuine ones who are part of the program.

Response to racism against H1Bs:
I wouldn't put it that way. Racism is a strong feeling. It's innate human nature to feel uncomfortable when faced with competition and it deepens when humans are tagged as 'foreigners' or 'people from another culture/ community/ nationality' (outsiders, not of our kind). I'm sure when an American competes against an American they too find reasons to argue and downplay their competitors. I know so many parents complaining how kids of Asian immigrant families are so competitive that it both, academically and emotionally, puts a toll on their kids. On the contrary, there are parents who feel that such competition is going to prepare them for the real world. So it all boils down to perception and attitude. Whether someone agrees or not, competition is ever increasing and today more and more people are getting access to quality education through technology.

Asian people are not born geniuses, there's a huge population in a lot those countries and kids, by the time they graduate, know how to deal with such competition and stress. That nature stays with them when they migrate to other countries. When these students attend our schools and universities, it's the American people who also learn and mature. Our top universities are flooded with Asian Professors and academics. If you talk to the American graduate students working under them, they will tell you that such Professors usually have a higher-level of expectations and set a bar that's super competitive. Who's benefitting? the American graduates and America. Then there are those who have the typical 'easy, lax and care-free' attitude who'll say such Professors are ruining the American system - many like in this comment section. Now, I won't say which student's attitude is good/bad, because I'm no one to judge and we should respect people's decisions. However, at a global scale, if America wants to stay at the very top and compete against countries like China and Russia, which type of a student would you want to work for NASA, NIH or Google? Again, I'm not saying all American Professors, teachers and employees are lazy. I'm just giving an example.

When a NASA scientist works day-n-night, their efforts are appreciated. Same goes for scientists working at the CIA or FBI. It indeed feels rewarding to work at these places (even though at some positions you cannot even brag that you're working there) but these government bodies don't pay huge sums of money either. A lot of them are contract workers who are called-out as cheap labor by Americans themselves. If we talk about an engineer, they can make way more money by working for a private company. But when a foreign national performs a similar job role in a private firm, puts in extra effort, they are be termed as - 'cheap labor', when most of the times are clueless about the money they are making. But they will still make an assumption based on their color/ accent/ job, etc.

Building biases against others is easy - there's one homicide in my neighborhood and I form a notion against an entire community, is that fair? or even justified? It takes tremendous effort to keep those feelings aside and learn, know, engage and stay informed about others. There are all types of Americans, Indians, Mexicans, Chinese, Academics, H1Bs, Permanent Residents, Caucasian, Latinos, Afro, etc. but it's unfair to form notions about the entire community based on a few incidents. Aversion is pernicious, especially when perpetuated based on lack of knowledge.

There are some loop holes but the H1B program in general greatly benefits the American economy. Kicking them out is no solution. If we look at the Chinese population, which has a low proportion of students staying back and working in the US,  a lot  prefer to go back to China, some due to the exact reasons of biases mentioned above. Who's benefitting and who's losing out on the young talent pool? These young students, with their fancy degrees, go back and build their own country and lo and behold today China is the biggest competitor of the States. The Indians, on the other hand, who are more likely to stay and keep building the economy, are called-out. THINK!
