Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

china is a huge country like india, so even a small percentage will mean a big number in absolute term.

in recent years the upper middle class/high class in China had bloomed so much and many of them are using emigration as a hedging investment strategy to park their wealth. The prime targets for them are Canada (Vancouver/Toronto), Australia (Sydney), and US (California, New York). They are a very different breed immigrants compared to older generation of chinese immigrants (me included). These people are usually very established and down-right rich and they buy properties with cash in those destination cities like crazy (Trump's son-in-law's family recently went to China to lure these people to come to US on EB5 and causes a roar). In fact, the locals in Vancouver, Toronto, Sydney complained loudly about this and some regulations were even put into place.

I have quite a lot confidence in India also. I think with the healthy development that India enjoys, this EB-I mess will become history in a few decades.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

to EB24life and others:
It's unconscionable to compare the indians in the GC queue to slaves: the slaves were held against their will and indian immigrants do have full rights to opt to move to other countries or their homeland. And please note EB immigrants from other countries are also "highly educated, legal, tax paying, ..."

to burtcocaine:
The root for the long wait for indian immigrants is because the vast amount of applicants from that country. As someone from China, I can attest that back in 1990s or early 2000s, almost >90% chinese immigrants were trying to stay in the US, after they came here legally or illegally. But now the situation changed fundamentally. Currently China sends most tourists (B1/B2) and students/scholars (F1/J1). But only a small fraction of them decided to stay (probably less than 1% tourists overstayed their visas and less than 10% graduates apply for H-1 in recent years). This is mainly due to the rapid wage growth/living standard improvement in China.

So the only solution to lessen the EB-I burden to me is the continuous development of India. Hopefully in another 20-30 years indian citizens won't be so desperate to stay in America, which is in relative decline (compared to east asia) anyway.

to indu2666:
Your argument may not be fair. Talent is not such a homogenous concept and certainly different perspectives bring in new insights. Actually this is one of the most fundamental reasons why american institutes and companies welcome people from different countries and cultures.

Topic: S.281

To OP:
"...Its just matter of time that it can come to house for it to get passed.

Once this is passed it will go to Senate under Bill S.281 for voting."

Have to ask where did you get that kind of confidence that this is only a matter of time???Please enlighten us.

I have seen many examples like this and want to know why the majority of Indians, here or back in India, all seem to be so (overly) confident despite of the abysmal living conditions there.

Topic: In GC queue: What is your Net Worth?

I am quite curious why so many Indian students still come to America for schools, often with big loans of tens of thousands $$. Last year I think almost 130K arrived here.

But each year there are only about 85k H-1B visas. So even if all those visas are given to Indian students, many of them will still need to go back to India sooner or later, especially if Trump indeed cuts the OPT back to 1 year.

Can Indian friends on this forum shed light why so? Won't it be a big burden to pay back those loans in India?
