35. It is NOT a small number of workers!

 

Even though the politicians claim that there are only 85,000 H-1B visas granted each year, 150,000 are printed up. That does not include the 100,000 OPT visas, or the 75,000 L1 visas or the hundreds of thousands of B1 visas that are improperly used. The correct number of work visas granted to STEM workers is somewhere between 300,000 and 500,000 EACH YEAR, EVERY YEAR.

300,000 to 500,000 were being granted even in the years when the economy was in the tank. The careers of hundreds of thousands of US STEM workers, white, african american, latin, asian, all ethnicities ARE BEING DESTROYED!
