Indians back in India want H1B & H4-EAD to be abolished. Naturalized Indians don't want immigration. Where should a person with aspirations go? Is it bad to have goals and ambitions with an Indian PP?

I also don’t know what the heck this term Hindu Nationalist means. Having pride in being Hindu and patriotic? What’s wrong with that? No one uses the word Islamic Nationalist, do they? The leftist media the world over including in India has a special phobia when it comes to Hinduism. Sorry I’ve gone off topic but had to get this rant out. Trump isn’t fundamentally wrong on the H1B clean up thing. We are all collateral damage because of these 10 person type desi consulting body shops (overwhelmingly setup by people from a certain state in India) without a doubt HAVE abused the system for decades and we are having to pay for the mess. Trump is going about it the wrong way, sure but the basic premise I can’t disagree with even though I’m on H1B myself and terrified of a rejection/RFE.

IBM 1 - 1. All of my relatives back in India support Trump 2. Most Naturalized Indians I have met so far in the US are Republicans and vehemently oppose immigration from India.

Same experience OP. I have friends who went back to India because their GC did not get applied are the first ones to share any negative news on H1b and H4EAD and I’m like ‘why do they care’! This is harsh reality. Keep doing what you do. Plan an option B in mind and hope you’ll never have to use it.

Not a fact. Most Indian Americans vote democrat, it has been a well established trend for ages . You can google those stats. Trump fans are Hindu nationalists. So please don’t stereotype all Indian Americans based on that group. On the second point, I agree with others here. This is still one of the BEST countries to live in , regardless of what anyone around says. Just look at our border and how people are going through a million hardships to get in. Use those stories as inspiration and consider how much you already have than looking at negative stories.

EY 1 - What is the connection between Trump and Hindu nationalists? Didn't quite get that

Indians have abused the system for ages. There are still housewives faking experience for H4 jobs , people conning interviews and rampant abuses of every possible immigration rule.like EY2 rightly said we are paying for their sins. And it is this kind or crab mentality that the ones who got in want to close the door behind them

^ 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

EY 2 you say you don't know what Hindu Nationalist means and then you assume a bunch of things of what it might mean. Read up and then decide if it's good or bad. Nationalism doesn't mean patriotism.

Per EY1 jehadi logic, those who oppose trump are islamists or their apologists. EY1 is so distraught at loss of moslem political power advocating their supremacy that there is this visceral need to blame everything on Hindu nationalists. Even on discussions unrelated

Guys..why do all discussions have to narrow down to Indian political debates? We are in a different country altogether. I personally never understood how is Trump connected with Modi supporters? Infact, Trump is a person who despises everyone who is not a White Native American English speaker living in rural US. I never intended to take this into a debate but was rather helpless and was seeking some support from people of the Desi community who might be in the same boat as me.

My OP friend, if you were seeking support you just validated something you started with. And this is a wrong forum, not everyone here is from India, there are many from nearby countries whose aspirations are NOT the same as yours. May I suggest multiple alternate boards with a peer support system that is much more sympathetic? Let me know if you have trouble finding any, will help you here. While there is nothing wrong with aspiring for a better material life, signaling helplessness and asking for support here is one of the worse things you could do to get to your goals.
