That's not a lot relative to the quota for this year which is 195,000. Moreover, not all of these were granted to IT people. Teachers, Nurses, Architects, Accountants, etc use H1B too.

With the US government facing such a huge budget deficit, I'm thinking of writing my congress persons and suggesting they raise the filing fee for H1-B from $1000 to $5000. I'd like to earmark the extra revenue to enforcing the H1-B laws.

Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN
JAPAN) for ! 6 A.M. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he
shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress
shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis
shoes (MADE IN KOREA). After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB. ! At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day, Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why
he can't find a good paying job in.....AMERICA.....

How lucky Joe has been to be born in amerrikkaa so that he can afford to enjoy german cars, french wines, italian designers, and various other international services without ever leaving his own sweet country? I wish the grass were as green otherplaces.
