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.
