Unpopular opinion: is it really that bad that Trump is making it impossible for people who rely on government assistance to get green card? Shouldn't green card be merit based?

I thought it was for citizenship. The financial independence regulation for getting a green card has always been there. Same as the requirement for carrying it all the time.

I think part of the reason to not be strictly merit based is for familial ties. eg. If my parents lived with me and retired, I would take care of them. They wouldn’t need go on gov’t assistance but they wouldn’t be eligible for a green card.

When you think of Green Care based solely in qualified workers, then yes. But what happens when you start considering asylees?

M here, at Deloitte just over a year. I have been expanding my network and working on FIs. I’m coming available soon and finding it very difficult to get staffed on my next engagement. Any other experienced hires faced with the same? It’s not about being a good fit. I’m just not seeing the roles which is extremely frustrating because I know they exist.


Love making to the final round with the hiring manager and then being told that ‘I don’t have the depth of experience that the role called for’. I told everyone that area wasn’t my expertise and was told that it wasn’t a problem. Way to waste my time. 🙄

I don't understand what was unclear. Don't have the energy(focus/fake excitement to be starting something on the phone right now. And I actually am working tonight.

How can I handle this better next time?

How many of you feel like your employers take advantage of controling your lives through the visa sponsorship?
