In the midst of the current arrest and possible deportation of Indian students in the US for committing Visa fraud, Indian techies say the US should remove the lottery system and give H-1B visa depending on skills instead.
In their opinion, the techies have said that the University of Farmington has shown the worst immigration problems, therefore with the availability of only limited number of work visas, students now have no other choice but to look at other available options.
The techies said that setting apart just the first 20,000 appeals received from candidates that have the U.S. master’s degree or a higher degree through H1B cap is giving the other F-1 visa holders the only other choice of competing with those among the yearly cap of 65,000 H-1B visas, failing, and then having to join the Optical Practical Training (OPT) course just to keep staying in the U.S.
The general secretary of Cyberabad Security Council, Bharani Kumar Aroll said that the cap of 20,000 for students with a masters degree is not sufficient. He added that there would be more challenges as the U.S. government is bringing the 20,000 under the 65000 H-1B cap.
He continued that the American government is not thinking that all the students will want to remain and work, so they want to select the best and send back the remaining, but their immigration system is not in agreement with the policy. “They should give H1B’s based on talent both for the benefit of students and their immigration system,” he said.
The techies said either the present cap of 65,000 on H1B’s is increased or there should be a wholly distinct allotment for students that allow the skilled ones to work in the U.S.
They also added that for those already in the IT sector, if they are unable to secure a good job or employment into the University, they shouldn’t think twice about coming back to the country.
Why most Indian Students would want to stay in the US
A past president of a Software Enterprise, Ramesh Loganathan, has pointed out that the urge to stay in the US is sometimes fuelled by both the parents and the society that these students find themselves in.
He spoke mostly on the vast opportunities available in India and mentioned that at times, enduring the situations out here is not worth it. He also added that there is really nothing to be ashamed of for having to leave the US and come back at a later time.
Loganathan blamed the situation on the carelessness of the students as he said that they were expected to have researched about the Universities before joining.
Most techies believe that students who want to study in Institutions in the US should go for the best and pay attention to their studies, but should beware of such snares.
Currently, the attorneys who are helping students have said that the entrapment process used by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement has become a cause of worry as it violates the 14th amendment of the US Constitution by due process clause.
One of the attorneys mentioned that the major concern right now is how to get the detained students from the cells, offer them a voluntary departure from the country and see to it that they get to their home countries safely.
