Tech outsourcers are unhappy.
Under Trump, it’s costing them too much money to steal American jobs, bring on Indian IT people, and then ship the whole IT office over to India. How dare the United States government charge them so much money for H-1B cheap labor.
They’re gonna sue. And I’m sure they’re gonna find some Obama and Clinton judges to agree with them.
A new lawsuit alleges U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has unlawfully charged technology companies $350 million in H-1B visa fees. A victory in the case for the plaintiffs would give many technology companies a chance to recoup millions of dollars from the federal government.
Correction, from taxpayers. A group that is being hollowed out as American jobs are lost to H-1B job theft.
“Defendant (“the Agency”) has unlawfully charged United States companies approximately $350 million dollars in visa fees (likely more) over the past six years,” according to a complaint filed on January 26, 2020, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. “Plaintiffs now seek a refund. For the reasons below, this Court must set aside visa denials based on the nonpayment of this unlawful fee, enjoin the Agency from continuing to charge this fee, and refund all payment of these fees for the past 6 years.”
And also the District Court should order that all American jobs be immediately turned over to the plaintiffs as compensation.
