Topic: No Spill Over (SO)

Sure. If the America one wants to live in is based on guiding philosophy, principles and thought processes of djt, miller, bannon and sessions, yes please, be all for that America.

Not sure why we think that they would treat one Indian (as an example) different from the other irrespective of him/her being an engineer, doctor or scientist. But hey we have a choice. If we think that's what makes America great and that's what we aspire for and that's where we want to live, then yes all 100,000 waiting for GC including their spouses, children and old parents should all be put on aircraft carriers and transport and big bomber planes and air dropped over India and if that's a little lenient and too human ditch them in the Atlantic.

In fact let's request for a great purge that nazi germany wanted to do 75 years back (bad looking, weak, diseased, old all gone) and only the fit Aryans should inhabit the planet. Let's celebrate the ethnic cleansing as done in former Yugoslavia. Survival of the fittest right?

Irrespective of the sarcasm sad that people don't see the element of discrimination.

but don't you see?

If 100,000 Indians in the backlog get a Green Card, a nation of 330,000,000 of mostly white/latinos will become Bihar overnight. The math and logic is air tight.

Plus as we all know wages are a zero sum game. When blacks were given rights in 1965, everyone became poor because labor force increased, same with women in 1920s. Things were so great back then, when an ordinary white guy could make 6 figures after passing middle school.



Of course adding productive members to society always brings down wages and quality of life.

All women who went to work during world war II should go back that same status as before. WW II is over and they should go back to their role before to raise kids, maintain the house and feed the husband when he comes back from work. But wait how will it work now for LG in the LGBTQ community? So we need to rollback the clock on those progressive movements too, don't we? How dare they make progress and move humanity forward?

Agreed. The first humans to immigrate from the African continent 40,000 years back should be ordered to go back and not leave without a visa (a transit visa at least :-))




Most countries don't even have birthright citizenship. Everyone outside Africa is an anchor baby and should go back to where they came from.



Yes let the human race collectively go back to pre-darwin, pre-mendeleev, pre-galelio, pre-copernicus, pre-keppler era. Who needs to understand what the universe is and our place in it, what gravity is, how evolution happened and who needs penicillin? Let's go back to that great era.

yes immigration is a privilege not a right.

All descendants of people who came in the last few waves (1900 onward) should be kicked out to where they originally came from. When they brought in the slaves they just did it unilaterally right? When European countries pillaged the African continent they didn't really ask did they? Remember you contribute and that too for more than a decade. You are not a doormat to be used and thrown. You are human.

Don't ever undermine your own contribution. Don't for even one moment think that they are fair (and balanced) so to speak.

Well said. It baffles me that people don't understand that these 7% country quotas and other restrictions and laws were strictly based on racial discrimination and to essentially keep the country, well, European. These laws are very racist. This was the only and sole intention behind these laws. I don't know why 'self righteous - I am the only good one America should keep' don't understand this tactic

In our desire to get in and slam the door shut on the rest what do we do - "we say 7% should remain, no spillover and all other nonsense. I have an MS from top 5 i should be allowed, no wait i have a PhD i should first, no no wait I make 250K i should be first. No he/she works for Witch throw them out. He/she should not Eb2 who does he/she think she is. EB3 is not qualified. He/she doesn't have a patent can't let them in". Shame on all of us for thinking on these lines.

This is what they want, Keep us distracted from their ulterior motive of keeping the country one race dominated. You don't see how dangerous this precedent is. People have fought and died for this not to happen again. They made slow painful progress over a hundred years, why, so that this current day would have never dawned.

The CBP had a field day once EO was announced. They went rouge. Infant/old people/sick people denied basic facilities. It can go ugly for a lot of people including us real fast. Remember this is a civil rights issue. Don't ever lose sight of this fact. If that's the America you like and want to be part of and live in, yes please keep all the quotas and no spill overs etc. There are some of us whose conscience will probably hurt and cry to see the country go back. Not the place we dreamt of coming to. Not MLK's dream either.

They didn't use these quota tactics when millions came in from Ireland, Italy, Germany to name a few. Oh we like carpenter better than tailors so keep tailors out or we only need farmers. Keep others out. Suddenly when yellows and browns show up they thought well we need quotas (under lies and false pretexts) so essentially we can maintain and keep the demographic as is and there should always be domination of one race and privileges should also be enjoyed by that one race. See this and don't be naive and oblivious to this.

Its shameful that native english speakers are making fun of a non native english spreaker. If you think about it for a moment, its same as asking americans to learn hindi and start using it on day to day basis.

While there are millions of indians who can speak English, you would hardly see any American who can even utter 1 sentence in hindi or any indian language.

Not sure where this world is heading but people need to be more compassionate towards each other. Those making fun of OP's english, first learn another language and be half as good as OP is in conversing English, prior to making fun of him or casting aspersions over his skill set.

Sad.. very sad!!



Kudos. Exactly the feeling I echoed. Not being able to speak good English is not a lack of intellect in most cases. It is a reflection of upbringing and opportunities. Everyone is not as lucky as some here who would have gone to best public schools studied English from kindergarten, MS in good schools or MBA etc. They lucked out.

Some learn English for the first time as an adult . Many reasons for this. But no flashy smooth slick English looks to be a parameter here to gauge eligibility for GC. This is incredible.

I have never heard of such a thing in a country where people immigrate from all corners and even non-English speaking countries.

Why are you so worrying for my language. I knew it is not good but for H1B job english is not needed. Today my boss is not came to office and I am not given any work. Nobody talked to me. I tried to report this to my consultant who always takes my phone and he is not picking. I am thinking my manager speaked to them and something will happen. This week will be very important for me. He is from Calcutta and he is not liking me I don’t know why. He has lots of feelings with South people



Your work product was behind schedule... you admitted that. Perhaps that may be the reason for this?

I think you are clear evidence that the H1B needs to be seriously revamped. How did you get to come to the US to get a job?



The new World Trade Center was build 6 years behind schedule. Blame it on H1-B? Projects regularly get behind schedule and over budget. It was one of the main the reason for the push to AGILE. Blame it on H1-B? Drug research runs behind by years from target. Blame it on H1-B? A lot of American Airlines (not AA) have poor on-time record for take-off and landing. Blame it on H1-B?

Topic: Fight with Citizen

Perfect answer.

There are many cases in which a person has received education (especially schooling years) in vernacular. Maybe they are from poor families and they work their way up. Start from a school in village, go to a college in town (actually study subjects in English for the first time) and then work in a city where they get a chance to speak and improve on their oral skills.

I have seen election ballots in Chicago in 7 languages one of them was actually in Bengali. They don't laugh away people just because they don't read or write English. That's why America is where it is. There is a recognition that not everyone is privileged nor have the best of everything. There is a genuine need for them to be accommodated. That's where you also got "Press 2 for Spanish". They practice empathy and not just for the sake of lip service. There are actually services provided. My cousin teaches English to newly arrived immigrants who are not comfortable with the language. It's a center for learning English (free !)

I have 2 people who work for me who have non-English background and struggle. One is a Russian immigrant who says XANX instead of thanks and a Chinese immigrant who i heard saying - this quely will not wolk (this query will not work). These are just examples. So they shouldn't have had an opportunity to immigrate? I sign HR forms that they are not being impacted because of their language barrier. They are very productive members of the team.

The crowd here is unbelievable. There is absolutely no remorse on thinking of lesser people in this manner. So condescending. So patronizing and disrespectful. Instead of understanding the poor guy's issue and providing some feedback they are teasing him for fighted versus fought. Way to go guys. Your own behavior borderlines un-American.

Topic: Raise Act - country-cap removal included?

From all the looks of it there actually may be an increase in H1-B cap leave alone reducing it. Classic paradoxical reaction. The more they drag it out the more it seems that forces in favor of increasing the quota will prevail. That will be very interesting. I think it is going in that direction !!! Wow !!!!!!!

Topic: MS in US must for h1b

(Promise my last long post :-))

In the same vein immigration to America has been based on a lot of factors and not just skills. Below are the immigration stats. How many would fall in the category of 'I am the only highly skilled immigrant others suck' of the 32 million from the first two waves? Yes I think immigration now should be reduced but I don't think doing away with diversity and some family categories is the way. It's un-American. No one should be excluded from taking a shot at the American dream just from a skill perspective.

Why not reduce the EB quota to 70K from 140K? 70K best of the best. Could be from Timbuktu or from Iceland. Don't care/Doesn't matter. Should be top of the crop along the lines Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Sigmund Freud, Max Planck, Niels Bohr, Jonas Salk, Ivan Pavlov, Enrico Fermi and others

I will never have the heart to look someone in the eye and say - hey you know what? You don't get a shot at the dream, you don't deserve it. Who do you think you are? You are a mere QA analyst or tester. You didn't create HP ALM so get lost. It is the principles we have formed in our minds that guide us. Each one has his/her own. Nothing right or wrong because it's your own belief system. Dignity of labor is what I have decided to use as a guide.

iPhones needs a producer and a consumer, testing tools need a creator and someone who uses these tools to provide application testing support, IDE needs a creator and again a user who uses it to write application software. Even a stupid API needs a publisher and a subscriber/consumer. Just because someone didn't create it doesn't mean that they aren't smart and can't use it to make things better. Need people with all/different skills to succeed.

Trust me when the grim reaper comes it doesn't have time to look at schools, GPA, eb1, eb2, eb3 etc. It reaps all. And that's what I will keep saying. Be careful what you wish for. One may think that they will survive because they are the top of the crop so they can make exclusion criteria and they will always fit in. But when they are doing that the rug may get pulled underneath their own feet. It's just the way it is. It has happened to the best of the best. That's why attitude comes before aptitude.

It's imperative that despite inner divisions or "i am better than other" complexes we don't underplay others in front of DT/SB/SM. The narrative is yes - we are good. Now what?

Good move..Only with the caveat that Tier 1 schools should be allowed..Otherwise, most of the people in Tier 2 and Tier 3 who come here to pursue MS or MBA even do not clear entrance examination in Indian engineering exams... Is rule has to be done, it should be done with true letter and spirit where brightest student from Tier 1 university should be given H1B and fascilated with fast processing of green card option.





Some of the great discoveries and inventions of this century has been from college drop outs... tier 1... tier 2 means nothing if you cannot work... why not just say... anyone with the name ariabull2005 should be given a GC on a platter....

Topic: MS in US must for h1b

Yes clear. But I see it a little differently that's all.

Communication skills, problem solving abilities, analytical reasoning, managing people and many other soft skills do not depend on degrees. It's what we refer to as talent. Otherwise we would never have the 'rising through the ranks' scenario in many companies especially in America where a lot of people have succeeded despite degrees. There are a lot of things required to run an organization. Not just subject matter experts. It requires all. My niece is a super/duper python programmer and she is only in grade 11. Point being even degrees and expertise are uncorrelated many times.

Having an advanced degree MS does give a head start and also builds strong foundation. No doubt. Engineering firms and medicine research and the likes definitely require and should require MS/PhD. But I don't think immigration was meant to be restricted that core intellectual group.

If this was the case many people in the world especially from poor countries would never have a shot at the american dream. Just because someone was born in Somalia/Sudan as an e.g. and did not have a chance at education doesn't mean that they shouldn't have that opportunity.

This is in the realm of social justice and social reform. That's where affirmative action came into picture, that was the reasoning behind family based quotas and diversity lottery. There are still a lot of congressman and senator who fight for social justice only because many people don't get a chance purely based on their circumstances and doesn't mean that we should leave them behind. Not saying that you mean it or said but that's my observation.

That's what i said. system doesn't work (for India). And hopefully working very well for ROW. Not sure why you are thinking i am saying it's not working for 'all'.

Again you did not read my earlier post. I am saying let 7% remain but then let's not get people approved with I-140. Kick everyone who has finished 6 years out. Change rule to make H1-B non extendable beyond 6 years. Problem solved. Every time someone finishes 6 years they either leave or if they get PR/GC before 6 years they stay. Indians will always then be non-immigrant workforce and the system will work for all. Expectations will be set and will be clear.

What's wrong with this approach? The system has to be transparent and clear. These workaround or loopholes AC21, EB1/2/3 retention rule making all should be cancelled. Keep it simple. Why do you keep saying that I want millions of Indians to immigrate unchecked. I never said that.

Keep as is 7% but stop this nonsense with AC21/EB1/2/3 retention etc. Why play with people's live and give them hope? People should also be responsible and know the details.

But when the priority date on a govt. website says 2008/2009 people think oh it's only 8/9 years. Let me get in line. That's a lie and that's where the system is rigged. Get the actual dates based 2083 visas per year per category published. Again very simple. Let's ask the govt. to do all the above. Case closed. No more trackitt discussion. All clear no ambiguity.

But you will never agree the system is rigged and abused by lawyers, employers and govt. Right? You keep making it the problem of the employees. I am surprised that you fault the people as if they are born crooks and hell bent on fraud and not fault the system itself which is corrupted too. You see no culpability of lawyers, employers and govt in this madness. Sad that you think it's OK for people and their families to be treated like this.

Ok point taken.

But I did think for the last few weeks you have been consistently attacking people who are lesser than you are and I did think it was unfair to them. Again gyan and MCA what does that mean? I meant what I said. I really don't overestimate and think there is a lot to learn all the time. So why condescend all the time. You are good at what you do but why would it mean others aren't or less deserving.

I have been always saying guys talk about the system. Let's get the system corrected. No matter the rant against EB1-C or MS in USA or BA/BCOM the system is unfair to all. It is unfair because it is only working for corporations, lawyers and the govt and not for the people stuck.

It's not working for you and it is not working for me (I don't mean I should a get a PR, maybe I shouldn't) and 1.5 million like us. It's working for no one. All in limbo. Let's clean it out. Start afresh. Let's make it work for deserving people and above all be fair. At least the generation after us will likely be better off for it.

Yes I did overreact. I did not want to make it personal but unfortunately it manifested itself like. Sorry about that. Have a good one.

I am no knight is shining armor. Neither here nor back home nor anywhere. I don't overestimate my place in the universe. I am as mortal as anyone else and equally capable or incapable as anyone else. I am saying to blame system and not the people. Don't judge them for anything. We don't know them.

Thanks for the advice. I will take into consideration. Will improve my writing style if it's that bad. If I lack depth I will dig deeper. Will always use my energy to get better everyday. I am never the one to say I know it 'all' and I don't need to learn anything new. I even learn from the college graduates that I have hired from campus. No shame in that. But yes I (me and my team) have saved millions for my business, that's why i get to run a 60 M budget and I have 300 + people who work me. My team created the first blockchain beta for settlements. So yes we do contribute in whatever way (small/big) we can.

No I do not have patents filed. Neither do another 6.9 billion people in the world. So they should die? That's it. A fruit picker has no patents a janitor has no patents a delivery boy has no patents a cab driver has no patents, throw them all out?

I am not sure why this facade of moral superiority. Low self esteem or low self respect? God forbid the day your kid doesn't attain higher degree. And i know you might arrogantly say to me - "That day will never come". Sorry i did not intend to call names. We need to try to make the argument about processes/policies and not about people. Make it about the system.

1. Agree but I am not saying all should go to India. Let's get the system fixed. If it is 7% so be it. I am OK. But then don't get a wait list created. That's all. Don't get people embroiled in the struggle. Keep them out of it. Again go for 7%. Please do. You don't realize that it's an incentive to get more students into the system too (Lured fees etc)

2. You didn't get it right. I was saying it was an incidental benefit. If hungary and poland helped US Corp I would have said Hungary/Poland

3. They do have a right to determine. But it's not all or nothing. They should just think how would their great grand parents/generations would have felt if america had kept them out. They wouldn't be here either

4. Yes it is based on inclusion. No doubt and we have benefited greatly. If it's quota based as determined by local citizens it's OK as I said before but full disclosure. Publish that current wait list is 70 years and see how students and others start looking elsewhere. DOn't give the admin/govt. a free pass. They are equally culpable. Don't make it all the fault of people who got entangled. Not all are unscrupulous.

Look from both sides. Enjoy the game. Have a good evening.
