Re: Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown

Both parties in the USA have paid only lip service to the overall immigration issues.

There are many issues and not just one like H1B.
  • Illegal immigrants
  • Children born in the USA whose parents are illegal immigrants
  • Skilled labour - Note, H1B is not just for software professionals

And I am sure there are more issues.

H1Bs are needed not because there aren't enough Americans taking up computers but because there is a need for low cost labor in this field which the companies here want. Its purely about the balance sheet. And then those who come here from other countries and do their masters need some visa to stay and work here in their field. The US should come up with a separate visa category for these students who finish their masters and want to work.

And offcourse the H1B visa program needs reform.
