One line from Senator SCHMUER summarizes the situation...........

"None of you Groups got all of what you want .........but the bill is better than the present Status Quo".

I personally think this bill is a great way to start............much better than the present situation...............

Whenever the house version is introduced, presumably they will go through the similar debate process in House. If both Senate and House version are approved, how do they make one bill out of two ? Aren't they 2 separate bills? Does that mean another group will have to come with a merged version and go through another round of debates?

Hearing with Panel 3, I guess would be very interesting with Mark Krikorian on it.

Correct.The house chairman Boblatte has already said,Immigration is going to be a REGULAR Order,Which means senate passes its own bill,then house commitee brings up another bill and then they essentially negotiate tweaking it before a final agreement is reached.So basically the final law,may have very few points from this bill,Plus they get more time to kill the bill.This is what they did in 2007.More time it takes,bill gets killed,Thats what Sen Sessions and Grassely wants and thats how they did it in 2007.

I see Anti-H1B Ron Hira in the list. Why is IV not invited?

Default Hira Ron

I was just watching this hearing. Hira Ron is opposing this bill from head to toe.According to him this bill is no good except misuse. Why this guy is so biased...he seems to be Indian/Asian origin and immigrant at some point in past. Is he hating any improvement just because he doesn't need this and doesn't like others coming out of their difficulties & suffering?

Why is Mr. Neeraj Gupta generalizing his opinion of a few H1Bs to the entire H1B population? Also, not all firms are in the managed services space or product development space. There are some firms in specialized fields that need talent from wherever not just India.

I am confused why such "experts" are getting a national platform with such narrow minded or a single country focused views.

Just now Ron Hira made Sen. Jeff Session believe that increasing H1Bs is importing more "low skilled" workers when there is already high unemployment rate!

I cannot believe two Indians testified against this bill. Of course anytime H1B comes in to the picture any bill will be viewed skeptically.. Still It's just depressing to note that two immigrants who took the path that every other person rotting in this mess is aspiring to take went against the bill. Just depressing.

I even more surprised by Neeraj Gupta who used H1b himself painted everyone else as low skill worker. His target was TCS, Infosys and Wipro so his Start up do not face competition from them. Most disheartening to see that he targeted Indian H1b visa holder in whole testimony.
This is difference between US where they celebrate each other success and other side we envy or don't want other to succeed thats why we see Eb2 vs Eb3 etc.
