US man stalks Indians in Ohio, posts video saying they are taking away our jobs

Quote:
Days after the fatal shooting of Indian-born engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an anti-immigration website that features photos and videos of Indian families relaxing in the city of Columbus, Ohio, has alarmed community members in the United States.

A post on the website SaveAmericanITJobs.com called ‘Welcome to Columbus Ohio suburbs - Lets take a walk to Indian park’ features a video of Indian families hanging out in a public park in suburban Ohio. The video’s description mentions how wealthy Indian families have ‘moved in’ to suburban homes in Ohio as “displacement of Americans has occurred”. As of March 6, the video has over 41,000 views on YouTube.

A Buzzfeed report says that the website is created and maintained by Steve Pushor, a 66-year-old computer programmer from Virginia.

In the video, Pushor’s camera pans over people playing volleyball and children riding bikes, as he narrates: “The number of people from foreign countries blows my mind out here. You see this whole area is all Indian, amazing. It’s an amazing number of jobs have been taken away from Americans. The Indian crowd has ravished the Midwest. It’s a takeover.(sic)” Pushor sarcastically describes the park as a “mini Mumbai”.

Pushor initially posted this video and the accompanying document ‘Ohio - A Journey To Indian Park’ in August. The document labels India as a “hell hole” and highlights the loss of “Norman Rockwell white people class” in the US. A link to the document now directs to a 403-error page, but an archived version of the page are still available online.

The recent shooting of Kuchibhotla and the anti-immigration rhetoric of the Trump government has caused the video and document to resurface on Facebook posts, forums and WhatsApp groups of Indian immigrants in the US.

Bhavin Bavalia, a US-born IT professional and son of Indian immigrants, said he came across the site and the video when a friend shared it on Facebook. Talking to Buzzfeed news, Bavalia said, “To think that there could be some weirdo filming my cousin’s kids as they’re playing at the park, and possibly fomenting resentment towards them, is just disturbing.”

Kaplesh Kapadia, the Indian-born CEO of a California startup SelfScore, said that Pushor’s website was the subject of discussion this week in at least five different WhatsApp groups.

“What we’re trying to point out is people in Ohio, IT workers and other professional people have lost their jobs to foreign guest workers. That’s what our point is,” Pushor said. Pushor also said he doesn’t want Indians currently living in the US to leave the country, and doesn’t advocate violence.

But members of the Indian community seem to disagree.

“This guy’s video is so horrific and creepy! I want to take time and document how awful he is.” Anil Dash, the Indian-American CEO of Fog Creek, a New York-based software firm said in a tweet.

he website SaveAmericanITJobs.org calls the “Indian IT mafia” as one of the “public enemies” of American IT professionals. A snippet on the website says: “The Indian IT Mafia Mega firms have greatly harmed the American Information Technology Workforce for decades. Their notorious practices and collaborations with greedy US Corporations have resulted in USA IT professionals training their H-1B or L-1 Indian replacements in order to receive severance pay. This is outrageous.”

Indian IT firms like Infosys, Wipro, HCL, Cognizant, Tata Consultancy Services and others are listed as the companies that make up the “Indian IT mafia”. The website also claims that “The Indian IT Mafia has through the years violated US laws and has been subject to several fines and have been found guilty of labor law violations and software thievery.”

The report says Pushor described the tone of his posts about Ohio as “satire” and pointed to other documents on the site, including an interview with an anonymous Indian tech-worker living in California . “To say our video and our document… is going to make such an impact on their lives is a big stretch.”

Re: Big ass $$$ Indians living in Columbus OH

The video is making news in Indian press today.


http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/h.../1/898128.html

Quote:
Amid attacks on Indian-origin people in the US, an anti-immigration website has caused alarm among the community after featuring a video showing a man secretly filming Indian families at an Ohio park and commenting that the "Indian crowd" has "ravished the Mid-west".
The 2:49 minute video is titled Welcome to Columbus Ohio Suburbs -- Lets Take a Walk to Indian Park and according to BuzzFeed News it has been created by 66-year-old computer programmer from Virginia named Steve Pushor.

It has been posted on the website saveamericanitjobs.org.
"The Indian crowd has ravished the Midwest. Its crazy. I ask this question -- what happened to all the American people that used to live in this middle, upper-middle class neighbourhood. Where does all this money come from," the man remarks as he walks through the park secretly filming the video.
Young children are seen running around and playing on the swings while their parents and guardians watch on.
"Im not saying its bad or good. Im worried about the people that had jobs and worked here," the man says in the video.
As he records the video showing some men playing volleyball, Pushor comments that till last year the Indian crowd was playing cricket and they have now turned to volleyball, migrating "towards the American way of life".
As he pans his camera across the unsuspecting crowd, he remarks that the number of people from foreign countries "blows my mind out here".
"This is an amazing number of jobs that have been taken away, more than last year or year before. Its crazy inanity," he comments, as he shows young children running around the park, playing on the swings and women standing and talking.
He also remarks that he can "get away" with taking the video instead of taking pictures.
Pushor comments on the "traditional outfits" that the Indian women are wearing, saying it is "phenomenally mind blowing".
Pushor told BuzzFeed News that he is trying to point out that "people in Ohio, IT workers and other professional people, have lost their jobs to foreign guest workers. Thats what our point is."
The report said Pushor had initially posted the video in August and it has re-surfaced again recently.
The website saveamericanitjobs.org says its mission is to "save American IT jobs for future generations" and has sections like Indian IT Mafia and posts on I lost my job to H1B and the perpetuated H1B scam that is hurting USA IT workers and abusing H1B Indians.
Concerns over safety have risen among the Indian community in the US following the hate crime shooting of Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla in Kansas last month

Re: Big ass $$$ Indians living in Columbus OH

This old hag must have so much hate to start a whole website around it.. do so many Americans have the work ethic, talent, skills for IT jobs?

I'm not saying we desis are doing some rocket science but pencho first be able to multiply 17 with 6 in under 2 seconds or 19 plus 32 mentally.

I'm not seeing many employable Americans in technical IT services sector.. it's like many kids are being brought up with little to no aptitude for work.
