Washington, Aug 16 (IANS) US immigration authorities have sought a number of rule changes for hiring temporary non-agricultural workers under the H-2B visa programme that may affect nationals from India.

The changes proposed by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) among other things seek to deny H-2B visas to ‘nationals of countries that are determined to be consistently refusing or unreasonably delaying repatriation’ of workers under deportation orders.

India, China and Iran are among eight countries, which have been identified by lawmakers early this year as falling in this category. Other countries are Laos, Eritrea, Vietnam, Jamaica and Ethiopia.

The eight counties are said to have refused to repatriate a total of over 139,000 workers. Of this number more than 18,000 are said to be convicted criminals who have been released back into the streets.

The proposed plans for revision of rules for the H-2B programme are based on suggestions made by US lawmakers. Early this year, three Republican legislators had called for the suspension of visas to countries that have refused to accept deported nationals from the US.

Anybody else get the feeling we have become the dumping ground of every overpopulated 3rd world country in the world? These countries need to start a voluntary sterilization program for their over abundant breeding societies.

Good. Any country that refuses to take back it's citizens should receive nothing from us-no aid, no visas, nothing. Our visa system is a mess. Once they are here-we have no real way of tracking them. We should not let another person in until we have a foolproof tracking system.

I am also sick and tired of Americans in the tech and other fields being put out of work by the abuse of our visa system. We all remember the lovely law firms who for the right amount of $$ "wink-wink" will prove that in fact there were no qualified Americans to do the job.
