All H1Bs are frauds. Are they??

One of the comments suggested I cover this area, so here it is.

One of the primary lies concocted by the Antis is... "All H1Bs are Frauds". Some of the variants are:
1. Most, if not all H1Bs cook their resumes.
2. Most if not all H1Bs have fake educational credentials.
3. Most if not all H1Bs lie on their job applications.


Let's look at it from the available data perspective. USCIS, on September,2008, conducted a major audit of the approved H1B applications. You can find the full report here:
USCIS H1B report

[ Did you notice I didn't try to fudge the facts and provided you with the real source of data, just the opposite of Antis? ]

If you want the findings, scroll over to pages 7 and 8. Here, I'll post the real data for you from the report:
The percentage breakdown is as follows:
Fraud: 13.4% (33 cases)
Technical Violation(s): 7.3% (18 cases)
Overall Violation Rate: 20.7% (21%)

So, the number of fraudulent cases were 13%. Remember, technical violation doesn't include fraud. It's mostly wrongly filled forms etc.Even if you include them, it's at 20%.

Now, 20% is not equal to 100%. 20% is not even equal to 50%. Right? RIGHT?

There is no justification for fraud. The fraudulent entities should be prosecuted and brought down. However, there is also no justification of saying 20% represents "most if not all", except when you are looking at the vocabulary of the Antis.

Now, let's compare apples to apples. Let's check the fraud rates in some other categories of visas. Did you know that the fraud rate in "religeous worker" category, according to the GAO report, is at 33%? Do you know that visa applications filed by American Citizens to get their foreign spouse here has 14% fraud rate?

Then why single out H1Bs? Oh I know why. Because Antis don't like competition. That's why!! I wonder who is the fraud here!!

Illegal American immigrants in India... are they?

In my comments section, Mr. Michael (Mike) Amorose, the great mac programmer mentioned that there are "laws" in the book that bars Americans from working in India. Shame on India. Such a protectionist country. How could they do that!!!

No Wait, what is this news story at msnbc saying:

BANGALORE, India - After graduating from Northwestern University last year, Nate Linkon contemplated job offers in Chicago and New York. But he chose a less conventional path and started his career here, in India’s booming tech capital.

The 22-year-old Milwaukee native works in marketing at Infosys Technologies Ltd., India’s second-largest software exporter. He’s part of a small but growing number of young Americans moving to Bangalore and other Indian cities to beef up their resumes, launch businesses or study globalization in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies

Now, if there are "laws" on the "book" barring Americans from working in India, these folks must be doing something illegal? Illegal American Immigrants in India, are they? :-)

Folks, these are the kind of lies the Antis perpetrate. They will throw their fellow americans under the bus at any point of time to get ahead. So, beware!!!

Michael Amorose: Aka Mike: Aka Vivek

I was searching on the net, and came across this post on the Mac forums by one of the staunch Anti... Mike.

All the spin in the world will not change facts.

My TWO phone interviews were in Oct. 2006 so that was after you became
manager. After the second "interview" it became clear to me that your
company has no interest in hiring a seasoned 16+ year Mac veteran and
author of 18 successful commercial Mac products. If those qualifications
are not good enough, then your goal is obviously something other than
hiring the best.

The fact is, like so many companies today, you run a cheap imported
labor sweat shop and when your cheap, inexperienced, third-world
programmers can't do the job, you "interview" people like me to get the
knowledge you need to give to your people who can't otherwise do the
work. Your compatriot, Tenzen Wild informed me the two "programmers" the
candidate would be working with where imported from China with little

Any company which conducts exploitative interviews is committing fraud
and fraud is a criminal act. Criminal and "legitimate" do not go together.

You claim to have hired "4 full-time Mac developers". Will you please
tell the list their names, nationalities, and how we can contact them?
Put your money where your mouth is and prove it to us. I am willing to
wager $1000 that at least 3 of them are imported cheap-labor foreign
nationals. Do you have the guts to accept a $1000 bet? In fact, I have
notified DHS, ICE, BCIS and the FBI that you are conducting visa fraud
because you are pretending to hire Americans, when in fact you are doin
the opposite. Do you think we are all stupid?

I see that you yourself are from Belgium.
One can hardly imagine a more
America-hating socialist
European nation than that.

I don't doubt your work has been on the covers of major fashion
magazines - it's not surprising given the corrupt nature of the fashion
industry. Just because you are successful does not mean you are honest.

I would warn all serious American Mac developers to stay as far away
from Box as possible because they have no intention of hiring you. They
only want to gain your knowledge for free and give it to their cheap
imported programmers who are incompetent.

This is the age of exploitative interviews. And Box is the master of that.


Wow!!! Really Wow!! One single mail, and you have berated
a legitimate company (read the full thread to see what other
Americans said), all Belgium immigrants, Chinese immigrants
and Fashion industry, all the while beating your own drum
how you are THE BEST!!! Wow!!! You ARE GOOD!!!

What other Americans thing about the Antis

Excerpts of some posts from the comments sections. These are posts made by fellow Americans to Antis.

"Leave the slumdogs alone. I am glad you guys are getting your asses raped.

It was you punks, the symbolic analysts, that have destroyed American industry.

You think IT outsourcing is bad? Just look around you morons, the entire manufacturing is outsourced to an enemy country(China). This is a clear and present danger.

I have no sympathy for the symbolic analysts in the form of stock analysts, programmers, auditors, lawyers etc.

You PARASITES are the reason for destroying manufacturing in this once great country and all in the name of automation, efficiency and redundancy.

Are you getting raped in the ass as a result of redundancy or cheaper alternatives? Die motherfuckers, die! Now its your turn.

The average American/Canadian gives a flying fuck as to what fate awaits y'all.

11:11 AM"

This is about the racist (in the word of another American) posts at itgrunt.com

"How much ever i respect your zeal and initiative to get something done, against all this exploitation of the American worker, but in that adrenaline rush, you guys come across as being xenophobic racists. I would love to show this blog to my colleagues and spread the word, but cant because it just comes across like another racially motivated hate site.

I did show this blog some days back at work, and nobody took it seriously, if you guys do have another site which is more serious and professional, let me know, i'd love to spread the word around."

Grow up Antis, Grow Up!!

Some more:

"Wayne said...

"Don't be surprised if the attacks that started in Australia migrate to our shores."

Is that why you have a picture of a (presumably) Indian beaten to shit in a hospital bed in an article that otherwise has NOTHING to do with violence?

You need to stop advocating violence; ... , you ruin the cause by spouting outright hate speech and trying to incite violence. You can say "We need to fix the H1-B visa and give American IT workers jobs again" without saying "Everyone needs to start beating the shit out of any Indians they see"."

Haaa Ha!!!

Do you realize now, Antis, Americans are NOT fools? They are not only not falling for your FUD, they actually distaste your "in-sur-gen-C".

More to come.

FUD: India is the most protectionist nation of the world

When US is criticized for the protectionist measures that some are proposing, the Antis jump up and down and point out:"India is the most protectionist nation in the world". It pretty much ends there, with no backup points.

Let's see, how much of it is true.

1. Americans are not allowed to work in India. WAIT!!! Is that true? Then what is the "Employment [E] visa" is for? Here is the information about how to apply for the visa:

Points to be noted:
a. It DOES NOT require you to provide your educational credentials, unlike H1B, which has stringent requirements.
b. Where IS the quota? If India is protectionist, ahem... "most" protectionist, then WHERE IS THE FRIGGING QUOTA???

So, Antis, get off your sorry asses, and go get a job in India, that is, if you are capable of that. Next thing you know how India is a country full of slums, and they shouldn't go there and stuff.

2. I'm not finished yet. Here is my question for you. Does US allow an immigrant, even if he has served in US military, put his life on line, fought for civil rights, or done anything unthinkable, to be the President of the United States? Will Arnold Schwarzenegger be ALLOWED, remember the word, ALLOWED to be the President? Even if he has 99% of people voting for him, he won't be ALLOWED to be the President!!!
Lo and behold. It IS allowed in India. In fact, we voted an Italian born woman to the position of Prime Minister (same as President in the USA), only for her to choose someone else she thought more suitable for the position. But she was not barred by policies. She was not barred by constitution.

So, Antis... what do you think? India is still the "most protectionist" country in the world? Huh?

Closer ties between US and India: Secretary of State

Amid the Antis scrambling to put the act of TEA party (Lipton or Green Label?) together, This is what Hillary Clinton has to say about India-US ties:

"Now that the government is in place, we are moving quickly to strengthen our ties. Our senior career diplomats, Undersecretary of State Bill Burns and newly minted Assistant Secretary of State Bob Blake, have returned from India this weekend to tell me of the enormous potential for progress in our relationship with New Delhi."

"After the Cold War ended, President (Bill) Clinton opened a new chapter of engagement with India," Clinton said.

"Talks between former Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott and his Indian counterpart helped to establish a new foundation for our relationship. And of course, my husband and daughter had an extraordinary visit toward the end of his term in office," Clinton said.

The Secretary of State termed the Indo-US nuclear deal as the second era and said the Obama Administration is determined to take it to the third stage.

"This landmark accord, which the Obama administration is fully committed to implementing, provides a framework for economic and technical cooperation, between our two countries, and allows us to move beyond our concerns about the status of India's nuclear program, an issue that dominated our relationship for much of the last decade," Clinton said.

I guess Clinton and Obama, both are fools. What say you, Antis?

Americans are fools. Are they?

One of the biggest lies perpetrated by the Anti lobby is:
"Indians think Americans are fools".

As I said in my previous post... NO WE DO NOT.

However, what bothers me to justify the separate post is their attitude towards other fellow Americans.

For example, take a look at the sister website of itgrunt.com. It's at http://www.h1bpimps.com/

Some excerpts:
"Christine Doyle, H-1B Call Girl For Google "
"Jena Baker McNeill - Fat Lying Whore"
"Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn CEO and H[indu]-1B Pimp"

Sometime back, I had someone forward to me some internal communications of these guys, where they were talking about some fellow Americans having a sane discussion on Dice forums. Here are some excerpts:

"MaryinChicago [another fellow American lady] is a dog, her English writing style does not have any element of American spoken language, American slang, and American 'culture'. - EricSmith"

"our problem we can't get volume, a lot [of fellow Americans] don't want to do anything - codeit"

Now tell me this. Who considers that Americans are fools? Indians, or these xenophobic Antis?

It does not stop with the fellow American citizens. Here are some excerpts I got from the same mail:

"I am playing around with their caste system..maybe they will fight against each other, like Ro_han is higher than nym 2 - codeit"

A cannot see an average American stoop so low just to further his/her own agenda. Do you?

The "insurgency" is having a taxed-enough-already party? What!!!



Does the "insurgency" (ahem!!) know the meaning of "TEA" party. It's a protest by people who believe they are "Taxed Enough Already". That would include immigrants and workers on H1B and L1 also. Then how can a TEA party be a protest against immigrants and worker visas?

Or are you just trying to piggy back on some completely unrelated cause, because you just don't have enough support? Maybe, just maybe, Americans see the FUD you are trying to spread?

Some of the FUDs I have come across in different boards spread by a handful of people:

1. Indians hate African Americans. What!! And why is that? Because they are black? And what are we? Browns!! Why would we hate African Americans when they were getting persecuted by xenophobes like you not too long ago, just like you are trying to pull it off on Indians now. Get it?

2. Indians don't hire Americans. The strangest thing is, this comes from a person, who, right now, is hired and happily employed under an Indian manager. Now what do you call it? Hypocrisy is too lite a word for it. Backstabbing hypocrite .... maybe.

3. Indians think Americans are fools. Being an Indian, I find this idea laughable at best. This is one of the greatest nations, built by Americans. The land of opportunity, built by Americans. The spearhead of innovation, built by Americans. No sane person will think Americans are fools. Yet, these bunch of morons wants to perpetrate this notion that "Indians think Americans are fools". NO WE DO NOT.

They are so desperate to perpetrate their lies that they show up on different forums with Indian pseudonyms, and try to denigrate America. More than once, I have exposed them for doing that. I mean, can it be any more lame than that? Even some fellow Antis feel that way. :-)

On the other hand, I get the perception it's the other way around. These bunch of racist xenophobes are the ones who think that rest of the Americans are fools. If you go through their posts, it's pretty obvious. There are repeated mentions of how the rest of the Americans "... just don't get it". Really, folks, what do you think? The rest of the Americans are fools, and you are the smartest of all?

I'll cover more on later posts. Happy reading.

Bush traded American jobs for Indian Mangos??? Huh?

I came across this post:


Now, can someone be any more dumb than THIS. Suggesting that the President of the Most powerful nation of the world sealed a Nuclear deal in exchange of... Mangos?

And then, in the video, comes the suggestion that irradiated mangos "glow" in the dark? Huh? And these are the people who think they deserve jobs that need brains? Let me just quote something about irradiated foods in US:

Some U.S. supermarkets carry irradiated food products today ranging from fresh tropical fruit from Hawaii or Florida,dehydrated spices and ground meat products.

A facility in Florida has been irradiating strawberries and other fruits on a limited basis, to prolong shelf life. On a trial basis, fresh tropical fruits from Hawaii have been irradiated before shipping them to the mainland, instead of fumigating them to eliminate the fruit fly pests that could spread to the mainland. Some spices for commercial use have been irradiated. In addition irradiation is widely used to sterilize a variety of medical and household products, from hip joint implants to bandaids and baby pacifiers.

Other technologies used to sterilize fruits, spices and medical devices use toxic chemicals, such as ethylene oxide. Use of irradiation can reduce the use of these other hazardous substances.

Now tell me, do these folks have no capability to find out about food irradiation by doing some basic google searches, or they are more interested in spreading propaganda?

Some of the comments are even dumber than the original post. Especially look at this:

"You hit the nail right on the head - India has threatened us multiple times with nuclear war if we don't give them our jobs. That's the REAL reason this is happening. There was also a news story of a Senator a few years back who got corned in a room of unemployed Americans who asked him why he was pushing for more guest worker visas and he said "India has one billion people and nuclear weapons" - a clear sign that they had threatened us."

This, when India doesn't even have a warhead that can reach anywhere close to USA. How the heck then India "threaten" US with nuclear warfare?

I have never seen more stupid FUD than this. Have you?

Debunking FUDs, myths and lies spread by the Antis

Lately, I have been seeing a few racists do hate campaigns against immigrants to USA in general, and high-skill immigration in particular. Most of these campaigns are based on outright propaganda and lies. Many a time, these propaganda mongering racists turn against a specific country or religion.

Fortunately, they represent only a negligible section of otherwise sane, non-racist American population. however, this negligible section is on a hate campaign to instigate the rest of the people.

This blog will be used to debunk the lies they propagate, and show their true colors. Happy reading.
