What a reply from Puneet on Al Franekn's questions...he has steamrolled the other panelists....I really like his style of narration and its obvious IV made a really good choice in him to represent IV on the panel. (Personal Opinion: I like when folks speak with their own natural language 'accent' and dont 'fake' one. We have been for a way too short a time in this country to pick up any accent )

Panel-1 discussions are over.

Dr.Puneet and IV have done a great job in the hearings. Kudos to Dr and IV.

If everyone in the USA immigrate via highly skilled, there will be shortages in other areas. Skills are needed at all level.

Few years back, my baby sitter was an immigrant from Nepal who immigrated via the lottery. She was a high school teacher there and highly qualified, she was the best baby sitter I could ever get. Her family is full of cabbies, workers in vocational jobs etc, her daughter is a nurse and her son is trying to get into the Armed forces.

So a diversity is always welcome.

Family based must also not be stopped. Family ties are very important.

So the issues, that need to be addressed are backlogs in highly skilled and process streamlining and we must not mess with other types of immigration

Default Great job by Puneet & IV team

great work;

some of the statements by Ron outright lies like Indian companies pay 10K/annum for L1 employees. It's very hard to imagine a tech worker living with 1K/month....

Great job Puneet. You did excellent...clear, concise and effective. You handled Sen Franken's question with great skill. Way to go IV!!!

I am confused which side Sen Session stands. He advocated High skill immigration reform, but not CIR. But then he sounded confrontative when questioning the Microsoft guy.

But again Sen Schumer mentioned he's for the CIR approach.

Sessions is anti-immigrant to the core. Similar to Grassley.

Great job IV. Wonderful and crisp testimony by Dr.Puneeth.
While the other panelists spoke in general about high skilled immigration, Dr.Puneeth's testimony clearly pointed out the fallacy of per-country caps and why it should go! Nice to see Brad Smith/Microsoft pick up on that in his follow-up and re-iterate that focus should be on reducing green card wait times!
I think I also saw Aman seated behind Dr.Puneeth ..I think Aman lives on Capitol Hill 24x7

Agreed. Sen Sessions was way too offensive even by US standards. (BTW Brad Smith from Microsoft did an excellent job of sticking to the core agenda!) At Sen.Sessions' age and standing a little humility is what one wishes to see
