What are illegal h1s ey1.politicians are more concerned with optics than facts, and therefore it is likely this will go through, but won't change a thing for the American workers they claim to support.h1bs are a soft target,not a voting block, no backing from liberal/conservative groups,and demographically are usually from groups that are still essentially tiny minorities

No KPMG1. I actually escaped the h-1 lottery (you were assessed on your credentials when I applied), and then Barack expedited my green card. So, I've already won the visa wars. I strongly feel that international undergrads are the smartest people in the U.S., because they are usually the top high school students in their home country. It's good to get a Masters and I am planning on an MBA. But Masters programs are getting expensive, and if you have a smart undergrad, say in CS, then it's smarter to keep them without salary restrictions.

This is incredibly damaging. I started as an H-1 making 65 k out of college, and undergrad h-1s are some of the brightest people. Stay strong H-1 fam.

Yes, I agree with EY1. I personally know people who work for such "consultancies". But I work for PwC as an associate, have never lied on my resume, and earn only $76000 annually. How am I an illegal H1?

It's a bill. It's not a rule or the law yet. Obama also proposed many bills that would've made a lot of sense to most of us on H1-B's like self applying for green cards if you're in STEM etc. if this gains traction then we have a conversation, otherwise this is just panic.

@consuktant 2 the masters quota matters cause a lot of people take up cheap illegal masters courses to get the cpt/opt benefit n eventually the h1.taking away the masters will reduce that .

like

Yeah I got my masters at the number one ranked program for my degree. Explain to me, EY1, why you think that means the quota for me should go away? Just cuz it doesn't apply to you?

like

I agree with you 100%, my statement was more a joke about the you being brilliant part. I also did not have a lottery when I applied, and it was based on credentials as well. I graduated out of my BS undergrad in 2010, when no company anywhere would hire anyone who needs a H1-B, despite the fact that I had a 3.9 and 4 internships. Kids with 2.3 GPAs got jobs, but I couldn't get one just because no one wanted to chance the visa. By the time I got done with my masters in 2012, the lottery was on pause and thanks to the masters quota employers were far more likely to even consider applicants like myself. I don't think removing the masters category solves the problem you are alluding to.

like

I think most of the consulting firms only hire those with citizenship or at least permanent residence? I was on H1B couple of years ago and that's the major barrier for me to get in consulting in the first place.
