I agree with this, the back-log is too immense. We should cut back on the numbers of visas issued for students so that they are at manageable levels, so that we don't educate so many and just send them back, and so that not so many feed into the H-1B system where they are abused by low pay, etc., and then they're kept hanging as "indentured guest-workers" waiting for green cards. Instead, we should only issue about 2,000 student visas, and then auction off 83 permanent H-1B visas per month, eliminate E-3, cap L-1 visas at 20K or so, cut J (exchange) visas, and similarly cut green cards. At such levels the staffs at DoL and USCIS might have a chance to conduct proper background investigations rather than rubber-stamping apps, and US job markets wouldn't be so severely glutted. for IT Outsource, skills outsource, Online Advertising, Web development, SEO visit our website:

Put an End to this Bill. It is massive has not been put out to the public. An outrage and is Dangerous to the Tax payer. No provision makes those here Responsible for their medical cost, to pay for their children being born like we must... they should be made NOW to pay tution like anyone would if they came as a foreign student.

Africa they if they are here illegally WE WILL Not only continue to pay for all their needs MORE WILL COME..
