Visa Worker Program Sneaks Wealth, Jobs to Blue States and Tech Industry

Visa Worker Program Sneaks Wealth, Jobs to Blue States and Tech Industry

The Niskanen numbers show the program is strongly skewed in favor of investors and universities in coastal Democrat states and against heartland states, companies, and employees.

If each OPT employee costs $20,000 less than an equivalent American, the Niskanen report suggests that the White House OPT program annually provides a cheap labor stimulus of $2.8 billion to Democrat states.

“Why do Republicans support a policy that creates jobs in Democrat states by taking jobs from GOP states?” said John Miano, a lawyer at the Immigration Law Reform Institute.

The DHS data shows that colleges and universities are providing 500,000 cheap foreign employees to American employers each year.

So if the federal subsidy is counted at only $20,000 per employee, the DHS data shows the program provides $10 billion in annual wage subsidies, most of which goes to wealthy employers in wealthy states.
