    America embraces foreign-born ballplayers, but not engineers, much to the
    dismay of big business, says Fortune's Marc Gunther.

    By Marc Gunther, Fortune senior writer

    NEW YORK (Fortune) -- Imagine if the baseball season had begun this week
    without such foreign-born stars as Albert Pujols, David Ortiz, Justin
    Morneau and the latest Japanese import, pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka and his
    mysterious "gyroball."

    It wouldn't be as much fun, would it? Fans want to see the most skilled
    players compete - immigrants and Americans.

    So why is it that people don't want skilled immigrants to compete for jobs
    in the multibillion-dollar technology industry?

    They view these immigrants as a threat. CNN anchor Lou Dobbs argues
    permitting more educated, foreign-born engineers, scientists and teachers
    into the country would force many qualified American workers out of the job
    market.

    That may be true in baseball, where the number of jobs on big league rosters
    is fixed. That's not necessarily so in technology, where people with skills
    and ambition help expand job opportunities. Immigrants helped start Sun
    Microsystems, Intel (Charts), Yahoo! (Charts), eBay (Charts) and Google (
    Charts). Would America be better off if they'd stayed home?

    "This is not about filling jobs that would go to Americans," says Robert
    Hoffman, an Oracle (Charts) vice president and co-chair of a business
    coalition called Compete America, which favors allowing more skilled workers
    into the United States. "This is important to create jobs. It's not a zero
    sum game."

    This week, as it happens, is not just opening week of the baseball season.
    It's the week when employers rush to apply for the limited number of visas,
    called H-1B visas, that became available on April 1 to allow them to
    temporarily hire educated, foreign-born workers. This year, Congress has
    allowed 65,000 of these H-1B visas, plus another 20,000 for foreign-born
    students who earn advanced degrees from U.S. universities. After obtaining
    guest-worker visas, employees can then seek green cards that allow them to
    stay in the United States

    FedEx and UPS did a brisk business last weekend because the visas are
    awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 65,000 are already
    gone. The 20,000 earmarked for graduates of U.S. universities will be
    distributed in a month or two, experts say.

    This makes it very hard for companies to hire foreign-born graduates of the
    U.S.'s top schools. More than half the graduate students in science and
    engineering at U.S. universities were born overseas.

    "It's sending a signal to the best international students that they may not
    want to make their career in the United States," says Stuart Anderson,
    executive director of the National Foundation for American Policy, a
    research group. (Anderson, an immigration specialist, also wrote a study of
    baseball and immigration that's available here as a PDF file.)

    Expanding H1-B visas is a top priority for U.S. tech firms. Bill Gates,
    Microsoft's (Charts) chairman, told Congress last month: "I cannot overstate
    the importance of overhauling our high-skilled immigration system....
    Unfortunately, our immigration policies are driving away the world's best
    and brightest precisely when we need them most."

    CNN's Lou Dobbs was unimpressed. "The Gates plan would force many qualified
    American workers right out of the job market," he fretted on the air after
    Gates testified. "There's something wrong when a man as smart as Bill Gates
    advances an elitist agenda, without regard to the impact that he's having on
    working men and women in this country."

    It's not just Dobbs. Internet bulletin boards and blogs are filled with
    complaints about foreign-born engineers. The U.S. branch of the Institute of
    Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the leading society of engineers,
    brought about 60 engineers to Washington last month to ask for reforms to
    the H-1B program. IEEE-USA supports a bill proposed by Senators Dick Durbin,
    an Illinois Democrat, and Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, that is
    designed to crack down on companies that use the guest worker program to
    displace Americans from jobs.

    As it happens, most of the largest users of the H1-B program are not
    American companies but foreign firms that want to move jobs out of the
    United States. Seven of the 10 firms that requested the most H1-B visas in
    2006 were outsourcing firms based in India, which use the visas to train
    workers in the United States before they are rotated home, according to Ron
    Hira, an engineer who teaches public policy at the Rochester Institute of
    Technology. Indian outsourcing firms Wipro and Infosys were the two top
    requestors of H1-B visas.

    In a paper for the Economic Policy Institute, Hira says that expanding H-1B
    visas without improving controls will "lead to more offshore outsourcing of
    jobs, displacement of American technology workers (and) decreased wages and
    job opportunities" for Americans. He told me: "Bill Gates talks about how
    you are shutting out $100,000-a-year software engineers. But if you look at
    the median wage for new H1-B workers, it's closer to $50,000."

    Asked about that, Jack Krumholtz, who runs Microsoft's Washington office,
    said the average salary for Microsoft's H1-B workers is more than $109,000,
    and that the company spends another $10,000 to $15,000 per worker applying
    for the visas and helping workers apply for green cards. "We only hire
    people who we want to have on our team for the long run," he said.

    It seems clear that Microsoft - along with Oracle, Intel, Hewlett Packard
    and other members of the Compete America coalition - do not use the guest
    worker program to hire cheap labor. They just want to hire the best
    engineers, many of whom are foreign born.

    So what to do? Everyone seems to agree that the H1-B program needs fixing. (
    Even Hira, the critic, says the United States should absorb more high-
    skilled immigrants.) Whether Congress can fix it is questionable. The guest-
    worker program is tied up in the debate over broader immigration reforms.

    But guess what? Just last year, Congress passed the Compete Act of 2006,
    which stands (sort of) for "Creating Opportunities for Minor League
    Professions, Entertainers and Teams through Legal Entry." Yes, that law made
    it easier for baseball teams to get visas for foreign-born minor league
    players.

    If the government can fix the problem for baseball, surely it can do so for
    technology, too.

    I filed my I-485 on Aug 13, 2007 (Received date) under EB3 ROW (> 180 days). My I-140 was filed for job "Systems Analyst". I am now being offered a job as "Director of Development" managing the development process along with 30-40 people for another company. I know this theme has been discussed and has risks but would it be OK to take the job. I have approved EAD and AP due to expire on Nov 21 (will renew tomorrow just in case GC does not get approved by then). Has anyone been in this position? I have valid H1-B visa and have not used EAD or AP.

    Any advice highly appreciated. thanks!

    I have same question......if for example as above someone changes to SAP....what should be done in terms of notification to USCIS..?

    Do we just go ahead and join the new job / consulting firm and get a letter from them to match the O*NET code or description as above...?

    One should ask experts, or may try to find answer in USCIS FAQs. But as I learnt from various sources, you do nothing, unless asked, i.e. there is nothing to send or tell to USCIS.

    The way education system is set here they always want to see 12+4+2 pattern. Now when you say 12+3+3 which adds to same it is true but you will have to get some proffessional degree evaluation service to break down your BS and MS degree by course and credit hours and prove that it is equivalent to US degree's. Also I am not sure what university / institute did you get your degrees from. In case they are well reputed then it will make the task a little easy.

    Once again thanks for your reply.

    Yes University is very reputed from which I did my Masters & Bachelors.

    Thanks.

    A freind of mine had two years EAD and don't have H1 anymore. His drivers License was denied as EAD is not considered a valid document for drivers License extention.
    This happened in Wayne , NJ.
    I too will be going for the renewal soon. Did anyone else faced similar situtation. If yes, how did they resolve?

    H.R. 3200: Sec 246 — NO FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS. Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.




    Agreed. But, that is only until CIR is not passed. Once CIR is approved ( IF ) next year, then all the undocumented people will come under the shield and will enjoy all the health benefit government is going to offer at the expense of Tax payers money.

    C'mon folks...after San Jose and DC we look up to you for inspiration. The awe inspiring energy and motivation of the Cal chapters will serve as as an example for all others.

    You guys are fortunate to have able leaders and energetic volunteers. This is the time to join the party! We are quietly harnessing the gains from the Dc rally and we continue to hope that there will yet be relief forthcoming soon. Nothing will happen though without your active support and participation.

    Please help make the SoCal gathering a resounding success!

    I've been living in the US for almost 4.5 years now. Last year I was flying from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and the security officer checking the Photo Id./boarding pass at LAX airport asked me the most intelligent question of the century.

    "What's the purpose of your visit to Las Vegas?":confused:

    I would expect this kind of question at immigration check for international arrivals and not on domestic departures. May be took his job too seriously.

    I thought of saying "Gambling, booze and girls" but just answered "Sightseeing" and he let me go :D

    I also had a similar experience in Canada where an officer asked the purpose of visit to Canada in spite of showing my Canadian PR card :)

    Dude, Leave alone PR, I have a Canadian PASSPORT, this CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) lady one day asked me "Who are you going to meet in Canada?"
    I could not believe the stupidity of this woman. So, I replied "Mr. Dhurandhar Bhadvadekar"..
    She waited a second to digest it, then said, "Okay..Go..!!"..
