Dear Editor:
This a response to Mr. Alexanderís letter concerning the trade deficit & H-1B visas. First, I donít think that there is such a direct relationship because there are more important factors. However, the cap limits on H-1B visas were set in the early nineties and the deficits have experienced an increasing trend ever since. There are 140,000,000 people employed in the US. Around 40 million hold a bachelors degree. This group has an unemployment rate of 2.7%. The 65,000 H-1B visas represent 0.0016% of this universe. That is, an insignificant number by any account, even if you add the H-1B holders staying from previous years. Evidently, if you want to see any positive effect, the cap on H-1B visas should be completely lifted.
