Default House Democrats Pushing To Revisit H-1B Visa, Green Card Reform This Year

http://www.informationweek.com/news/...leID=202600744

Please join the discussion on informationweek.com at the end of the article.

"However, despite the letter to Speaker Pelosi and other House leaders, new debate about raising the cap on H-1B visas or green card reforms isn't likely to be penciled in any time soon in the House, says a government source, unless the Senate makes the move first to revisit those issues."

Should we push some senators to take the initiative?

Default Is this true?

I am quoting from a blogger on informationweek.com: "I remember the last time the H-1B cap got raised. It was 2000-2003 when it was nearly 200K per year. Those were the years that American tech (and other) workers were getting laid off by the truckload." - Tokharian

Is that true? Can anybody find out?

Thank you for the information. It explains why people were laid off in truck-loads. It was the dot com bust and the end of Y2K problem. I will post that as a response to that blogger.

dot com bust and end of y2k, many small companies closed as the venture capitalists backed off. A lot of immigrants were forced to return to their home countries.

This is the primary reason for layoffs, anti immigrants will blame immigrants for everything
