America's highest-skilled workers are being displaced from their
professions by employment-based visas:
- H-1b: Congress has authorized employers to sponsor and hire foreign
workers regardless of whether qualified Americans are available to fill the
positions. Employers can legally force Americans to train their foreign H-1b
replacements as a condition of receiving a severance package.
Congress has authorized employers to bring foreign workers into the
U.S. for one year while continuing to pay them their foreign wage level.
- PERM: Congress has authorized employers to sponsor foreign workers for
green cards by simply running a few classified ads and then to find any reason
possible to disqualify all American applicants.
