I do think completely eliminating H1B visas is a net positive.

I think we disagree there, when looking at the landscape today. With that said, as automation further displaces labor in the short-term future, your suggestion becomes more accurate.

There are other visa programs available. Basically the only reason the H1B program exists is to lower labor rates. As such, it is completely beneficial to eliminate H1Bs. Most people here on a H1B visa is here illegally anyways. Most H1Bs are illegal aliens per the laws outlined for allowing H1Bs.

There is no down side to eliminating H1Bs.

This is the case, if we look at countries like Australia or Canada that basically have a guaranteed visa if you have a bachelor's degree, the pay for software engineers there is shit compared to America which still has a cap.
