President #Trump derails #SiliconValley’s H-1B visa scam

The fears escalated for Harpreet Singh Kohli under the glow of a TV screen last year, when his daughter broke down at the sight of the words strung across the screen: “TRUMP WINS 2016 ELECTION.”

“This is not good for our country,” his daughter, then 8, cried. Even at her young age, she knew she was a U.S. citizen — and her father was not. “This is not good for you.”

One year later, as Kohli sits with his family in a sprawling Sikh temple in San Jose as he does nearly every Sunday, he worries his daughter may have been right. For the thousands of foreigners like him who hold an H-1B visa, it has been a dizzying year of anti-immigrant rhetoric, memos and executive orders from an administration that is seeking to stem the flow of foreigners coming into the country.

  1. I’m sure he’s good worker and man.. BUT.. He needs to go back to India and make that country great again.. NOT take a job that an American can do and Google is working him at half of what they will pay an American citizen.. I don’t feel sorry for them. But hey, since his daughter is now an anchor baby , he’ll stay and continue to take jobs meant for an citizen.
