I am Jack's complete lack of surprise. The reality is only poorly-run companies are still outsourcing, and current Trump admin actions are rapidly killing off the H1b programs abuse.

I am already seeing the results of this. H1b workers and managers in Technology and Development are being tasked with creating documentation for their work to be used to pass the knowledge onto the Americans hired when they are gone, and they don't even know that the applications are being denied. HR is furiously pumping out new job requisitions to hire American workers for these jobs, and bitching the entire time about how "expensive" it will be to pay an American a livable wage to actually fill the job (H1b's will work for "slave labor" wages and work 14 hour days - 50-70k for 150-200k software development jobs, ect).

It's basically a complete inversion of when American workers were tasked with training their H1b wage-slave replacements, except it's being done in the down-low instead of out in the open. Corporate lawyers are saying that the first wave was massive amounts of documentation asking for details on the work, the salary, and their hiring practices. We're talking 100 pages of federal forms per H1b worker. Then, when the lawyers collect their over-bloated salary filling them out and sending them in, they are coming back rubber stamped DENIED at a 100% rate.

Effectively, the Trump admin is banning H1b's without actually banning H1b's, simply through what Government does best - wasteful bureaucracy that is costing these Jew bean-counter run monopolistic big businesses ass-loads of legal cost. It's fucking glorious to watch. Expect to see literal shit-ton of low-mile, new-model BMW, Audi, and Mercedes cars flood the used market in the upcoming year as these streetshitting credential lying fucks are shipped home and their cars are repo'd.

Exactly this. An immigration lawyer had a write-up last year when Trump announced the new immigration rules and they were saying h1b rejections suddenly were very hih and turn-around times had increased tons as well (probably due to additional paperwork), so much so that applicants risked denial just because it was taking too long to review. It was great news.

I truly hope thats the case

Sounds about right. I was reading an immigration law firm's blog last year when Trump was on the warpath and they were saying they were seeing about 80% rejection rates, about double the normal processing time, etc. etc. Which all sounds perfectly fine if h1bs were being abused so much up til now.

Thanks for the field report. It's good to see progress on this front.

I hope our cultural weapons of mass destruction have had some effect. It would be great if these H-1B people carried a bit of American culture back with them.

What exactly is the Trump administration doing to cull H1b's?

He doesn't seem to act against his own self-interest very often, and his private businesses are definitely in the "abusers" category.

I outlined everything in my OP. What part are you confused about?
