Dear Editor:
Thank you Immigration Daily for your comment (2/16/06 ID). It is as Immigration Daily says another example of the attitude that to many of us are tolerating through inaction and should not.

Joan Mathieu

Dear Editor:
It is the prime duty of the US government to see to the betterment and welfare of its citizens and to protect their job as well. But, due to prevalence of H-1B program in the Immigration law the USCs and LPRs' jobs are being taken away, and thus they are made unemployed. Now the creation of H-1B visa has proved a curse to the USCs and LPRs. The USCs and LPRs are struggling very hard to get a job, but the foreign workers are getting jobs in the US very easily. The rate of unemployment in the US is increasing day by day, but on the other hand, foreign workers are coming to the US to work. When the application for H-1B visa is filed by the employer, the USCIS does not seem so serious to look into the application as to why the job that is being given to the foreign worker, is not made available to the USC or LPR. Hundreds of thousand of US citizens and legal permanent residents who have engineering, MBA, computer science degrees are getting distressed and depressed in not getting jobs suitable to their qualifications. They are working as bartenders, waiters, cab-drivers etc. now. This is a great misfortune for them. The employers are also mainly recruiting H-1B workers by using "bodyshops". Additionally, the employers are not compelled to recruit the US workers or show that the US workers are unavailable before seeking H-1B workers. Furthermore, the DOL also does not seem to have deeply investigated any H-1B abuses or seriously asked the employers as to why the job was not made available to the USC or LPR. In view of the fact that USCs and LPRs have been suffering from being unemployed the US government should immediately abolish H-1B program.
