    Seems too many qualified Americans were passed up under the previous administration in favor of foreign applicants.

    H-1B visas are available to foreign nationals “to perform services in a specialty occupation, services of exceptional merit and ability.” Over the years, parameters have expanded to include fashion models and other not-so-high-tech endeavors.

    Some 65,000 H-1Bs are allotted each year for workers with bachelor’s degrees, and 20,000 more are earmarked for those with master’s degrees or higher. Universities and research organizations are exempt from the caps.

    Over the past year, USCIS has received over 5,000 e-mails reporting various forms of fraud, abuse and wage slavery involving H-1Bs.
