It will absolutely be better under Biden and 1000% more useful if D’s control the House, Senate and WH. It’s not just H1B that needs over haul. The E visas also need a lot of work. Wholesale immigration reform is badly needed and it will never get done under the GOP. Most red voters do not understand this country needs immigration if it is to try and stay a top of the pile.

08/09 was term 1 for Obama. And he was stifled in term 2. Healthcare was the major agenda and to be fair...I’m happy with that preference. Today is different though. If D’s have all 3 which looks ever more likely I expect something to be done. US business needs it. And Biden will probably get more funding for illegal border crossings and security too because, let’s face it, he’s not a moron like Trump.

Why are you comparing DACA kids and H1B? If poverty is your theme, then why only limit to DACA, why not the millions of kids in Africa ? Shouldn’t we take care of them first before DACA considering they are in much worse situation? Getting back to topic, DACA has support because of the huge Hispanic community. Most Hispanics in the US would’ve been through DACA like situations in the past. They are a huge vote base, so let them get the support. They deserve it. H1B on the other hand is a whole different ball game. Law makers are making millions through Lobbyists because folks are on H1B. Lobbying companies like IT Serve collect money directly from H1B emoloyers to ensure people remain on H1B. There is a whole ecosystem of desi immigration lawyers who have mushroomed in the last decade only because they feed on H1B petitions, renewals, rfe etc. Who will pay their salaries once H1Bs are gone. Have you thought of them. 😄

True. We might get a slight reprieve for about 1 term if Biden is elected.

I understand no one cares about welfare of H1B Visa holders (and that make sense), but I think the problem has been that there is so much ‘focus’ on us since past 4 years. With Democrat being in the office, that will go away in my opinion.

Why does it make sense?

If Biden win then we don’t have to worry about an unknown EO landing from the sky. To see any immigration reform, a new bill will have to pass through congress and if same party is not holding both house and senate, no reforms can happen.

Our group of immigrants is always in the blind spot. The previous travel ban got a lot more airtime because it could be weaponized to garner more votes from their allied constituents. Our group of immigrants have no allies.

No, you’ll just have to leave the country, come back in as a tourist, claim that you got persecuted in your country, file for asylum, and live in a Democrat sanctuary city past the 6-month mark. Even if a judge rules against your asylum, you’ll be protected and can still get similar benefits as a legal resident. That, folks, is the Democratic dream.

D7 I'm not outraged. I sympathize. But I also want us all be honest. Its about the high quality of life and money. That's why we chose to stay here even when our status and future is so uncertain. So we just have to either deal with the uncertainty or leave for lower quality of life. Americans dont owe us shit and certainly not the quality of life we got used to

Based on the recent bulletin from USCIS H1b amendments and extensions will become a lot easier. No more stupid RFEs to prove employer employee relationship, Customer contracts, 1 day extensions

Everyone, including me who expects a lenient Visa/immigration system from US should be able to be vocal about the number of fake resumes and it’s source, running in the job market.

Get married to citizen and divorce them once you receive GC. That’s the most ethical thing nowadays going on rather then go through all the pain. Honesty is a history.
