Senate Bill Crack Down on Visa Abuse

Senate bill would crack down on H-1B visa abuse and protect American jobs!
Finally a bill going in the right direction!!

Bipartisan legislation from Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) would require companies to prove that the hiring of an H-1B foreign worker does not displace an American worker. The bill would also include L-1 visas for foreigners transferring from their home offices to U.S. facilities.

This new bill is expected to be similar to Durbin and Grassley's 2007 proposal, the H-1B and L-1 Visa Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act. That bill would have required employers to advertise job openings for 30 days before submitting H-1B applications for those positions. It also sought to prevent employers from hiring H-1B workers and then outsourcing them to other companies.
