Many of you have seen the article in Insight about IEEE-USA’s new attack on the H-1B visa program. (http://insight.ieeeusa.org/insight/content/policy/255071)
In brief, we believe that the use of H-1B visa to replace American workers represents intentional discrimination against Americans because of their citizenship – which is illegal under the law.
As part of this effort, we have created an online petition asking the U.S. Attorney General to launch an investigation into H-1B outsourcing. We already have 200 signatures on the petition, but we need more.
The petition can be found here: https://www.change.org/p/attorney-general-of-the-united-states-stop-h-1b-discrimination-against-americans?recruiter=460476742&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink
Please take a moment to add your name to the petition. In politics, numbers matter. The more names on the petition, the more likely it will generate a response. We believe that the law is on our side, but the U.S. Department of Justice is a busy place. It will take many voices to get their attention.
After you have signed, please send this e-mail to anyone else you think might be willing to help.
Thank you for your help. This should only take you a minute or two to do, but could have a profound impact on the H-1B visa program.
Director, Government Relations
