Specialty Work Visas May Displace American Workers (Sen. Chuck Grassley)

We asked the top nine foreign based companies in 2006 that used nearly 20,000 of the available H-1B visas to disclose further details about their workforce and their use of the special visa program.

As members of the Senate Judiciary Committee Subcommittee we have a responsibility to oversee and evaluate our country’s visa policies.  More and more it appears that companies are using H-1B visas to displace qualified, American workers. Now, as we move closer to debate on an immigration bill, I continue to hear how people want to increase the number of H-1B visas that are available to companies. Considering the high amount of fraud and abuse in the visa program, we need to take a good, hard look at the employers who are using H-1B visas and how they are using them. A copy of the letters we sent can be seen on my website.
