Comment: Capping Economic Growth - USCIS announced last week that the H-1B Cap has been reached. Many businesses and the country as a whole are struggling to get out of the long recession we have been in. Making it impossible for businesses to hire the people they need to expand their businesses is a sure fire way of capping economic growth. The unpredictability of being able to hire in the US due to the H-1B cap combined with the increasing ease of setting up offshore operations is driving business operations out of the US. This is especially true for the fast-growing companies which are likely to create the bulk of jobs in the next decade. The wrong-headed attempts at protecting American jobs using restrictionist immigration laws are making long-term job creation in America difficult. Please let us know your thoughts about the H-1B Cap by commenting in our letters section or by writing to us at
