this number to its former 65,000
H-1B and L-1 Visa programs each account for almost
300,000 skilled American workers being unemployed EVERY YEAR!

Scientists, LISTEN UP!
You are being the hardest hit!
In the year 2001, despite record unemployment amongst
engineers and scientists (almost 5%), the INS issued 97,000 new
H-1B visas, while granting extensions for 215,000 more!
Unemployment continues to grow, and 5% is already the
largest unemployment figure for engineers in history.

International students (primarily Indian and Asian) now
make up 49% of the graduate student population in the US.
These students are funded by American academic dollars,
then move directly into the workforce to compete with American
students via a conversion of their visa from student to work

of Americans in the information technology industry have
reportedly been replaced by cheap foreign labor since a cap was
raised on an immigration program, according to an exclusive
Problem Solvers report.
News reported that two types of visas, the H1-B and L-1 visa
programs, allow foreigners to come to the United States for
employment and work in specialized fields like computer
programming and software engineering.
allow U.S. companies, including federal contractors, to hire
skilled foreign workers on a temporary basis to supply workers
where they cannot find qualified Americans.
However, the technology workers, who are mostly from
India, are not filling empty jobs but actually replacing
qualified Americans, according to the report.
are allowed to come over and work but they're not supposed to
displace Americans," Central Florida Siemens' worker Mike
said he was forced to train his foreign replacement before being
laid off. "These

technology layoffs increase, criticism of H-1B visas mounts http://www.dfw.com/mld/startelegram/business/local/5146710.htm
notes that many H-1B candidates are indeed here in the United
States -- as students on college campuses.
graduate schools are full of students from overseas pursuing
science, math and computer-related degrees. So employers in
search of top grads each semester would be foolish to overlook
foreign-born applicants, he says.
For example, in 1999, the most recent year for which
figures are available, 49 percent of the students earning
doctorates in engineering at U.S. universities were non-U.S.
citizens on a student or other visa. International students also
accounted for 47 percent of the math doctorates that year and 41
percent of doctorates in the overall physical sciences,
according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
Muldoon, director of global immigration services for Motorola,
says many of its H-1B employees are recruited out of U.S.
colleges, then brought on staff with a kind of temporary visa
that must be converted to an H-1B…….
