An IT company based in Silicon Valley has filed a lawsuit against the United States government for denying an H-1B visa to an Indian techie.

[….] The company asserts USCIS acted capriciously when they denied Anisetty the visa stating his position did not meet the criterion that "a baccalaureate or higher degree or its equivalent is normally the minimum requirement for entry into the particular position."

According to Xterra, they had submitted all evidentiary documents as requested which proved that Anisetty's appointment as Business Systems Analyst qualified all four criteria for an H-1B specialty occupation, yet, the USCIS gave no explanation for denying the company's petition for granting a visa. […]

Currently, Anisetty holds valid H-4 dependent status through his wife, the principal beneficiary of an H-1B application. [...]

H1B has destroyed Americans holding onto and getting back into Tech jobs. Where I live we are saturated with India invasion working for JPMorgan. They live in apartments with 2-3-4 others. All the while Chase and other companies pay for their Green Card as well. It has literally displaced thousands of Americans

I'd like to see the employers who do this, and the politicians and bureaucrats who allow it, fitted for rope neckties.

I was replaced by THREE H-1Bs on my last Silicon Valley job. Count 'em, THREE.

Although the company was legally required to pay 'prevailing wage' to H-1Bs, they still saved money. H-1Bs don't follow the prevailing wage, they set the prevailing wage.

“Business Systems Analyst” is generic - not a specialty.

DENIED!

I work with offshore and onshore Indian IT workers a lot.

This is what I have found:

“contrary to established legal precedent” probably works like DACA. Some other slob who wanted to hollow out the US tech workforce bent over for this therefore you’re not allowed to stop doing so.

Reportedly, Anisetty has attained a Bachelor's degree in Engineering (Electronics and Communication Engineering) and a Masters of Science degree in Information Technology and Management from the University of Texas at Dallas.

So this guy just got what all the other American college graduates have?

Doesn't that mean that he does NOT have special skills that can't be filled by an American worker?

This has to be H1-B visa abuse. He should have had the degree and skills from India before coming here. The fact that he was here and then got the degrees from an American college alongside American students proves that he does not have special skills that could not be filled by an American worker.

Thanks for the report from the field, Laz! Doesn't sound much like the 'best and brightest' the H-1B crowd is always nattering about.

No way a guy employed for less than 3 years has skills no American has.

It was stupid and unreasonable that they denied the visa to an educated, stable person who would come to work in the US legally and already has a job with a company.

The illegals coming across the border are the ones that need to be stopped.

In my experience the contractors were very good at copy/ paste and then minor modifications to product something that might be considered functional. If something needed to be developed from scratch... Completely lost and useless.

The way to counter this is to have some Americans with the appropriate credentials apply for the job.

When any are refused an interview, there’s exhibit A for the Government.

Translation: id10t error.....lol
Better yet, maybe it’s more efficient to have done the coding myself to begin with. In the end the company that think they are saving money end up losing money in rewrites and lost time. What’s sickening is the CEOs of these companies are liberal and their Government masters keep them protected by allowing thousands of H1B annually. Its overflooded the IT profession making it almost a commodity. In turn the liberal CEOs reward their puppet masters by donating to their campaigns.

For those of us who work in IT, and are law-abiding, tax-paying Americans, many of us veterans, that’s a slap in the face.

We’re being outsourced in our own country.

Would you rather have us on welfare????

The company asserts USCIS acted capriciously when they denied Anisetty the visa stating his position did not meet the criterion that “a baccalaureate or higher degree or its equivalent is normally the minimum requirement for entry into the particular position.”
______________
De facto, this is not across the board normally a requirement for this work. I know because I often apply for this specific position on contract. There are few positions in IT that require a degree. You can have equivalent experience. Often the schooling needed can be done through online programs and self study plus experience.

I hope that this company loses bigtime. This is just one more attempt to squeeze Americans out of jobs with spurious academic requirements that are not necessary.

It is a different culture and you are navigating it.

We worked with Indian techs back in the 80s. Same issues.

They see the job as being done when they are finished writing.

They have a sort of Painter’s attitude. On the last stroke of paint I am done.

Not a professional attitude, which is lets see how this paint holds up.
