Editor's Comments of the Day

The "Letters to the Editor" section of Immigration Daily has carried more than one letter from Professor Norman Matloff. In response to a letter in the October 5, 2000, issue of the Daily we received the following: "Calling ISN, which represents scores of H-1B Indians (among the very Indians who have added so much value to the American bottom-line), a militant organization is deplorable. And your publishing such a letter condones his statement and is regrettable." As we have said before, ILW.COM serves as a platform for the exchange of information. Our editorial standards are two. In areas of substance we make every effort not to publish things which are factually incorrect. Knowingly putting forth incorrect information serves no one's best interests. In matters of style we publish reasoned opinion but not emotional diatribe. There is, however, room for disagreement in interpretation of facts and matters of immigration policy. It is our intent to facilitate intercourse between those with differing viewpoints. Visitors to our activism page will find it contains links to groups which have both pro and anti immigration positions. Only when people have access to information can they make informed decisions.

Immigration News of the Day

For 50,000 Would-Be Immigrants, Diversity Lottery Could Open Doors

The New H-1B Visa Law a Life Changer But "Body Shops" Expected to Continue
According to the San Francisco Chronicle even though the H-1B visa bill includes several provisions giving foreign workers the ability to negotiate for salaries and working conditions like their American counterparts, not all workers on an H-1B visa will be able to reap the benefits since "body shops" - staffing services that import foreign workers - will go on exploiting workers from poor countries such as India.

Letters to the Editor

This is in response to Gary Endelman's letter which appeared in yesterday's issue of Immigration Daily.

Dear Editor:
Gary Endelman says my letter overlooked the fact that the new H-1B bill allows an H-1B worker to change jobs once his/her adjustment of status application has been on file for 180 days or more. No, Mr. Endelman, I didn't overlook anything. I simply stated that the bill's provisions will bring only a moderate improvement in the plight of the H-1Bs, and that indentured servitude will continue to be alive and well in this program… More

Norm Matloff
UC Davis

The following is in response to Prof. Matloff's letter which was published in the October 5, 2000, issue of Immigration Daily.

Dear Editor:
One has to read Mr. Norm Matloff's Letter in your Immigration Daily (10/5/2000) with distress. While his previous letters merited some discussion, this letter reveals his true colors. He is just an anti-immigrant with definite animosity against Indians. Calling ISN, which represents scores of H-1B Indians (among the very Indians who have added so much value to the American bottom-line), a militant organization is deplorable. And your publishing such a letter condones his statement and is regrettable.

We (Indian H-1Bs) hope that this is corrected.
