Dear Editor:
With regard to Ali Alexander's comment about 'truly brilliant and innovative immigrant workers' sponsoring themselves or finding companies to sponsor them for a green card. His comment does not reflect reality. I'm a multinational executive working in the US on H1B since 1998. I've personally been involved in the founding of three companies and have created many millions of dollars in wealth, jobs for US citizens, as well as personally paid millions into the US tax system. The green card process in my state is completely broken and backlogged to 2001. Dept Labor requirements don't make any sense to modern business, and the promised PERM program has not materialized. I would sponsor myself for a green card in a second, but DHS doesn't permit that either, except for researchers and Nobel Prize winners. My attorney's have advised that I may not be able to extend my H1 past 2005, in which case I will be forced to relocate the company outside the US. How does that help the US?
