i doubt that this is the real picture. it is one opinion and full of nonsense. the article tries to defend illegal immigration. that kind of an attitude will never help us who are trying to immigrate legally. also just because legal immigration is a long and difficult process does not mean that it is okay to break the laws and become illegal. those who came here illegally could never have come legally on EB visas. so this kind of rubbish no one will buy.

As the Article says,Lou Dobb defends Legal Immigration in an Interview with Newsweek which is total Crap . He Attacked H1B Program on his Daily Show and the Guest was no Doubt Kim Berry to give his Input. These things make everyone laugh at Lou Dobbs , the Lofer.

Is this book available? maybe we can get a bunch of copies and send to some editors, John Stewart/Stephen Colbert and some legislators.

If the author is approachable, maybe an interview with him and some TV personality could be tried.

In a book titled "Dude, did I steal your job? Debugging Indian Computer programmers", the author, an Indian software engineer, has slammed Lou Dobbs of CNN for calling the foreign high-tech workers as non-tax payers, and humiliating the enormous contributions of foreign high-tech workforce to the American economy.

"Foreign high-tech workers who come here on H-1B / L1 visas pay every tax that U.S. citizens do, including Social Security and Medicare. But if they return to their homeland, then they will not get any benefits from these programs. The recent recession cost the United States more than half a million foreign high-tech workers who had to return home after paying all these taxes. In fact, Americans owe them money"

The author writes.

"The ignorance to mention the stupendous contributions of immigrant high-tech workers was the primary cause for the anti-Indian atmosphere which is seen among computer professionals lately. Unfortunately, neither the media nor the public understand the foreign high-tech workforce. The net result: those who supported the foreign high-tech worker programs have taken a back seat to play safe, and Indians and others who came here on visas, and worked their butts off to make this country prosper are named 'slaves', 'dummies', and 'enemies'. writes the author, N.Sivakumar.

The book also claims that bringing in foreign high-tech workforce at the right time was the primary reason for America's stupendous high-tech success, and gives statistics and evidence to prove that hadn't America acted quickly, the Europeans would have taken over the software dominance.

The book also outlines the life, struggle and achievements of Indian programmers in America with entertaining facts, and is a prime discussion topic in many anti-outsourcing and immigration websites lately.

Default Dobbs, Space.com

Lou Dobbs is the founder of the failed Space.com site. He might realize that he could not have even got the business started without Indian H1B's.

Had he run the business properly he would also have been a .com success story by now and would have been a key note speaker at Diwali and Navratri functions in NJ.

I am a .com success story because of you hard working H1Bs-------- Dobbs.

But now I make a living by bashing them.

Default Space.com

Macaca,

Oh, I meant that, the quote is what Lou Dobbs would have said if Space.com would not have failed. Sorry about the confusion.

Default Lou Dobbs claim 400K H1bs an year

I was watching Lou Dobbs yesterday he was discussing STRIVE act being introduced in house,

He pulled out a slide which says they bring 2 million legals every year and part of which said 400,000 H1Bs every year,

Where does he get this number when anual quota is only 65K, can some one verify this

I have seen him do this earlier also. I think he adds the dependants too. So, what he is saying is that with every H-1B comes 5 or 6 dependants!!!!

nope... hes talking about entries into the US. Its a count of every person that turns in his or her I-94 when you enter the country. IV member Pankaj Kakkar detailed out what they are doing and how they are skewing the numbers... shame on Communist Lou Dobbs

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/3/28/82450/4208

"Here are the quotes from the PDF that prove my point:

TECS compiles and maintains information collected from nonimmigrants by DHS Form I-94, which asks for dates of arrival and departure as well as limited demographic information, such as name, sex,
nationality, and date of birth.
I-94 Forms issued at air and sea ports of entry, in most cases, can be used for a single entry only. Each time a nonimmigrant enters the United States via air or sea, the arrival portion of the I-94 Form is collected and the information is entered into the data system.
This verifies my experience - every time I fly out of the country, I surrender my I-94 at the airport, and get a new one when I enter the US again (at the immigration desk).

To contrast, when I drive to Canada (instead of flying there), I don't surrender my I-94 and therefore am not counted as a new admission (if I were, I would've been counted about 10 times last year instead of just 3 times):

... while a
nonimmigrant may enter the United States at a land border port of entry numerous times using the same I-94 Form, the arrival information
recorded in TECS refers to the initial entry only.
This is all from page 4 of the PDF.

So, reiterating - the stat quoted in the diary is wildly off the mark."

He could even count people like me, who are extending their H1.

How can we question this guy, there got to be someway, he cannot justify this figure clearly

you cannot count dependents because they are H4, you cannot not count those who renew visa because they are not new,

someone should really question this guy he is beyond control

Not a lot we can do to control dubious Dobbs. Best way is to ignore him. His producer and every other person around that show is a dummy. We just have to wait for him to screw up, Which I feel is going to happen sooner or later. Did you watch that town hall meeting he held in San Antonio last year (some time in Aug/Sep)? He was ripped off by a lady and people sitting in the hall. Roy beck was also there and he was scared to do his rhetoric.
