The H-1b program is merely an American worker replacement program. Between 2000 and today, hundreds of thousands of competent, highly skilled US workers were let go, while during the same time hundreds of thousands of foreign workers were brought in to take their places.
Check out the truth for yourself:
1. Jobs aplenty going unfilled: http://www.redherring.com/Article.as...arket+Stumbles
2. H-1bs are not cheap labor, safeguards prevent that: http://beta.h1b.info/lca_job_list.php?page=15&name=INFOSYS+TECHNOLOGIES +LTD&company=&city=&county=&state=&year=ALL&sort=

3. American workers always have the first shot at American jobs before they are offered to H-1bs: http://www.infoworld.com/article/05/...reality_1.html

4. Only foreign workers with esoteric, hard-to-find skills are brought in to do jobs Americans can't. Otherwise, they hire an American.

How about we hire back the ones we let go, who made us a technological world leader in the first place? Many of them are still scrounging for survival jobs after being replaced with foreign workers.
