Needless to say that the candidate has to pass all the interviews with flying colors."
That is pretty normal. By the time you eliminate evidentially unqualified and drill down to very specific requirements you MAY end up with a qualified candidate. Otherwise - back to square one.

President Trump is trying hard to curtail H1B but stupid American kids do not go for Computer Science. If you are stupid, you deserve nothing.
Where have you been? It's usually Trump supporters who are against college education. It's a growing movement in some circles. Even from some Repub politicians and pundits.

Total bs. There are plenty of people in the U.S. who get a BS degree in Computer Science (not that that is a requirement in a lot of tech companies which prefer experience although some do). The big tech companies downplay that and say they need H1B visas because they want to pay workers less and they want to change the genetic fabric of the U.S. by fostering more and more immigration whether legal or illegal from the non western world.

1. No company is trying to change the genetic fabric of America.
2. As to lower pay, do you know how much these folks are making. I work in IT. What do you think?

When 90% of professors actively promote one view point that’s toxic to intellect and knowledge, and certainly delegitimizes the value college and even the concept of education (programming of students’ minds with biased information).

The H1bs will become the Trump green cards. Companies are already enticing H1b applicants by offering to start the green card application process.

It's all about cutting out the Indian outsourcing companies as middlemen so the US tech giants can hire them direct and cheaper.

A large section of the US population does not have any interest or ability to work in the tech sector. Throughout history, America bought in no-wage and low wage workers, not computer science grads.
