98% of H1D applicants have a Bachelors Degree & most end up working in the high tech industry.
Now US workers complain these thousands of foreign workers are taking jobs because they're willing to work for a lower salary than Americans demand.

More than 50% of these 3-year visas go to Eastern Indians trained in cities like Mumbai but most don't go home when the visas expire making Indians the fastest growing group of illegal immigrants in the USA.
Supporters argue it's the price America pays to stay competitive.
3rd person interviewed =} "There are 2 options: get the people & get the work done here or move their businesses to India where there is an availability of high tech people".

Felix Guzman's family is in Mexico city
Felix Guzman : "For 13 years I haven't seen my grandmother, my family I can't go out, I can't have no (any!) vacation, my son asked me to take him out (&) I can't take him out because of my citizenship".
Bur Guzman & others here say they won't give up the fight. Thousands of New Yorkers are marching in solidarity across the Brooklyn bridge calling for immigration reforms & they're not alone. This is happening in more than a hundred cities across the country. In Arizona, 3000 protestors marched a mile to federal hall.
Alberto Cuellar : "We come from Mexican roots but we're American. We're all here for the same dream, we're all here because we're all son American, we've been Americanized, our roots are here, we're Americans".
Those sentiments echoed in Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Nashville (Tennessee), Philadelphia & in LA. They call these demonstrations "the National day of dignity and respect" but one New Yorker stood out in the crowd & said immigration reform should mean tightening border security.
James Mac Donald : "I don't care, they're an invading army. I'm interested in Americans, all I care about is that they go back to their own country (&) I don't care how it happens.
These rallies were a prelude to a larger protest planned on the National Mall in Washington on Tuesday.
