Guys, looks like a lot of people are voting against H1B visas as well. I think since most of us are here on these visas, we should support these visas as well.

Even if we are able to get green cards, it is important that we strive to keep this place the best atleast in our lifetime. On that ground, it is important that we understand and stand up to the H1B visa provision which gets the best people in the world to this counrty and also make sure that they stay here.

I felt bad that even some people who are here (or atleast claim to be) on H1B seem to suggest on change.gov that the visa is not good for jobs here. Can we expect this country to be able to produce cmopanies like Google, Yahoo, Sun and numerous others if we are not able to atract talent.

On this note I would also like to add one insight that we had once we were discussing in office. My boss's contention was that if you are paid half the money as you are here, would you go back to India. A discussion ensued and we both concluded that the thing that keeps this country in the forefront of technology is that it attarcts the best people from all around. Be it Indian, chinese, European, Arab, African. It would be difficult to find an environment so geared to be able to get the best brains and keep them there. India/China is also growing, but unless they are able to attract talent like US, it would be difficult for them to match atleast in technology (which also ties down to higher per capita GDP).

I see that Dream Act folks are trying to get > 60000 points, to showcase their support. We need to match for the posts like Legal Immigration in there. Currently the top posts for "legal immigration" are around 2000 points. Not many ppl are not taking interest.


Please vote up on our causes! Easy job..but please act!

I am afraid the DreamAct folks will just again dig their own graves. That record number will just prove that the change.gov effort is a system which may not attend necessarily needs of Americans, but rather the will of anyone including foreign nationals and illegal aliens. Sorry, just wanted to share a honest reality.

I voted on this. But I did not see any vote for elimination of country qouta in EB immigration system. We need that topic on change.gov and should vote heavily in favour of it.

I think anti-immigrant groups are voting down on pro-immigrant policies. So, one should vote down on all anti-immigrant policies as well. Just voting up on pro-immigrantion policies wont help I guess
