Dear Editor

 I was flattered to see my name in a publication so distinguished as the Washington Post, but surprised to see myself misquoted. I have never written an article or opinion about the H-1B program nor have I advocated that employers pay foreign workers less than US workers as implied in the Washington Post. On the contrary, all US Employers must pay aliens the prevailing wage as calculated by the U.S. Department of Labor. Recent decisions have drawn these wage distinctions very strictly in favor of US workers and no deviations are permitted. The statement that American employers are inundated with applicants and resumes for high-tech jobs is patently untrue, and the characterization of H-1B workers as “indentured servants” from India, "underpaid" and "trapped" with their US employers, is fanciful hyperbole.
