Indian on H1B visa here. Given the current political climate, should I think twice before booking travel to Cuba? Or will it raise red flags with the immigration office?

Yes. Don't go there.

No. The climate will affect all of you, irrespective of where you decided to spend your holiday.

No red flags

Don't think it matters. You already have the coveted H1B..

If you have your visa stamped and not going through any visa extension, I don't think it matters.

The DHS has the right to reject you or do searches on your devices if you decide to exit and enter. So with that in mind - decide whether you want to take the risk.

Hi! I need your help in raising awareness about all of the recent attacks against the Asian community, especially amongst our elders. An 84 yr old Thai man was pushed and died while walking in his neighborhood. A 91 yr old man was also pushed to the ground in Oakland. A Filipino man was slashed in the face in NY and a Viet grandma was attacked in San Jose. These are only some of the stories, and no one is talking about it. I’m begging you to speak out in your communities to raise awareness.

Team, made through 4 rounds at SF for a non technical role. Next is a panel presentation. How much weight does it have in the process? Also, I just got a promotion at my company. Will SF consider what I am making or they are hard to negotiate? At least RSU? Background: this role is hard to fill due to multilingual requirement. I am almost certain I am the only candidate.
