Executive Summary

  • India demands that the US continually enlarge the H1-B program and that it look the other way on H1-B visa fraud.


India’s role in pushing for the enlargement of the H1-B visa program, and in looking the other way in the numerous cases of fraud appears to be a long term strategy for the Indian government.

The following quotation is evidence of this.

An audit at the time found that claims on 45 percent of H1-B visa applications from India could not be verified. The US government gets pressure from the Indian government not to reject H1-B visa petitions in spite of the high level of fraud coming from that country. If you follow their press, you find that India regards H1-B visas as a God given entitlement. In such an environment, it is no wonder that the range of abuse has extended to importing sex slaves.

Meanwhile, the practice of getting H1-B visas for non-existent jobs and creating phony families to import people as dependents goes on unabated. – Sold Out

Hypocrisy on Immigration Demands

Beyond asking the US to not enforce any standards around H1-Bs, L-1s or B-1 visas, the Indian government also makes demands on the US regarding opening up immigration, that India does not itself follow. This is covered in the following quotation.

Offended Indian government officials condemned the backlack and whined about American protectionism. Then Indian prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee bemoaned America’s lack of a “more liberal regime for the free movement of businessmen and professionals from Indian and Europe and the US.” A cursory check of India’s own strict requirements for foreign business and employment visa applicants seeking to enter its country — conversion of business and employment visas to other visas is almost impossible, visa holders must register with local police upon arrival, and no change of employer is permitted during the currency of the employment visa, for example — demonstrates how India zealously refuses to live by the liberal immigration policies it sanctimoniously demands of other countries. – Sold Out


The Indian government, along with the Indian press, continually lies about the nature of the H1-B visa program. They intend to get as many Indians into the US working under H1-B visa and to displace as many US citizens as possible. The H1-B program, along with outsourcing, is the only part of the Indian economy that functions effectively.
