How many punches in the gut can H1B workers take? It’s just painful when we’ve given so much to be in America. We always believed America to be a country to embrace and one where you can make dreams come true. It’s so disheartening to see how time, and time again, we are made to feel unwelcome and unwanted. I know there are many Americans who support H1B workers but it feels like your voices are being drowned out too.

Think about how we even in our respective countries/ states have these conflicts. Biharis not welcome in Mumbai. South/ north issue. Assam issue. Local job first rule conflict in some states. Yes I agree this is injustice but to a certain extent and even more it happens everywhere. We gotta learn to live with it and its part of the risk we take for a better life. Till we become Permanent residents life will be uncertain. If that doesn’t work for us then home country is the best option. There is always local public opinion which gets priority and I am not against it. Fyi - I am h1b too and from India. Hard to digest but true. Think about it. I am sure we have more examples from others countries.

Unfortunately yes. There are ways we can support by following non profit law firms like immigration voice etc which are fighting for immigrants. Unfortunately going the legal route is the right way. Plenty of facebook groups where these organizations are planning lawsuits, bills, mass senator requests for things like h4 ead, gc backlog, daca etc.
