This is the most hopeless of all the articles I have seen on this issue. It has no meaning, no arguments, nothing new to tell or share and it doesn't even cover any issue. The article does not cover the issue properly making mockery of the entire issue. simply hopeless journalism

The reporter does not seem to know the issue at all and coming from an Indian/Pakistani background painted the whole issue as if it were a Desi issue.

Dude writes that visas dry up and he quotes USCIS spokes person saying we are sitting at 45,000 from week 1 and haven't still moved an inch. Damn it! Gimme a break! Get real

The attorney featured sings to his tune and talks about all things Indian, Indian companies, Indian nationals, India. Wow! Does any one need more ammunition to take charge and paint H1B issue as Indian issue? Sorry to be harsh but this is more of a bad press than any thing helpful.

Then he goes on to say that people are waiting for GC because of strict rules?? Excuse me! until Jul 2007 rules were not implemented. This guy says strict rules.

Why are you covering H1B abuse issue with Employment based green card? A person born in Indian get more than 10 years to get GC and same caliber person born few miles away in Pakistan or Bangladesh get GC in 1 year!!! Both person have same look, same culture, speak same language. Is it cultural diversity??
Lets have some negotiation fix genuine loophole in H1B system to prevent abuse and address genuine problem of Employment based GC backlog. If we keep fighting, neither one is going to be fix. Please have your thought.
This not the real Ron-the-Loser, it's Ron-the-impersonator. But you do have a good point.

Default Balanced article.

We can't expect every article to be a mouthpiece for our issues

Default Chill out..

Guys,

Chill out...Everybody is unnecessarily getting worked up just because our frustrations are not reflected in the article.

It doesn't say "that people are waiting for GC because of strict rules". That is totally taken out of context. Re-read the article.

Keep in mind where the article has appeared - BBC. Keep in mind the audience of the article - people who don't know anything about this issue. From that perspective it does a decent job of providing someone with some idea as to what the H1B/GC issues are about. It is in no way meant to be (or attempts to do) a thorough in depth report on what is going on. Think of it as just a "big picture" overview of the PATHETIC state of US immigration system as it applies to H1Bs and GCs.

On the point of painting "H1B issue as Indian issue" - Although the article doesn't claim to do that, don't you think that when 65% of H1Bs are taken up by Indian nationals (at least in 2000, probably more later, http://www.murthy.com/news/UDtechi.html)
, it is at least a "65% Indian issue."

In any case, my intent was not to be rude but just to point out that there is no need to get so riled up on an article that neither hurts or helps our cause.

Take it easy.

Default Actually..

The attorney is right and no where has she specifically stated it as an "Indian only" issue. It just happens that lot of consultancies are owned by Indians and they could be her clients.
But she has at least brought visibility to the sudden enforcement tactics of the USCIS, which can only be termed as seeing everyone as a criminal, just because you found one or two in a bunch. In fact hearing about a lot of H1 extensions denied (even with approved 140) or given only for a very limited period of time, extensive RFEs etc. all I can say is that if they are unable to legislatively "purge" foreign workers due to business lobby, they sure are trying to do so administratively.
