David Francis at the Christian Science Monitor writes
A popular video recently posted on the Internet`s YouTube shows an immigration lawyer talking to a group of business people in May about the process of hiring foreigners for their companies."Our goal is clearly not to find a qualified US worker," says the attorney in the video, an immigration lawyer at Cohen & Grigsby, a firm in Pittsburgh. "In a sense, that sounds funny, but it`s what we`re trying to do here."
I`ve previously reported
on this story.
The fact this story is reaching the Christian Science Monitor means this story is reaching important decision makers in Washington DC. I think many of these folks will have enough survival instincts to understand that being associated with H-1b expansion is a bad thing. However, I suspect that many will be surprised at the utter rage that will be unleashed when the H-1b issue starts to be seriously addressed.
H-1b expansion meant that a significant community of Americans had their world turned upside down-and the issue was largely ignored for years. I think this is part of the reason why for example, the GOP lost their traditional core constituency, college educated white males,
in the last presidential election.
