There's no shortage of anecdotal reports from U.S. workers that the H-1B visa program is costing Americans jobs.

The study, which is due out sometime next year, seeks to answer the question: Do companies show a preference for H-1B workers, and if so, why-

The number of H-1B visas issued to foreign high-tech workers is less than half what it was last year.

Immigration authorities had granted 60,500 H-1B visas by the end of the first three quarters on June 30, representing a 54% drop from the same period last year. "The demand is gone," said U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service spokesman Dan Kane.

"Ruby Ridge" used to refer to a geographical location in the state of Idaho, but after an incident that took place there 10 years ago on Aug. 21, the phrase has come to refer to a scandalous series of events that opened the eyes of many people to the inner workings of the federal government, including the vaunted Federal Bureau of Investigation. Now that 10 years have passed, the feds will accelerate their ongoing effort to "move forward" and have the scandal declared "ancient history." But the Ruby Ridge episode should not be soon forgotten.

Grass-roots objections to visa program conflict with lobbyist efforts to raise cap

Sanchez says visitors to his Web site are checking to see if their company is using H-1B workers. Using federal Freedom of Information Act requests, Sanchez has built an online database of approximately 1.1 million "labor condition applications" that list the firms using H-1B employees, the number of those employees, their job types and their pay.

Big layoffs among IT workers.

H-1B visas aren't going away. Indeed, IT employers are lying low, hoping to quietly persuade Congress next year to permanently raise the annual H-1B visa limit above 65,000. And why not- Like most politically connected industries, IT employers have friends in Washington who are arguing to expand what is in truth a government subsidy.

Interview with Joerres, chairman and CEO of Milwaukee-based Manpower Inc., an $11.8 billion staffing services firm that counts among its clients 98 of the Fortune 100.

Q. What's your response to the unemployed U.S. IT worker who resents the fact that the government is issuing H-1B visas to import IT talent-<br><br>A. We have to continue it at a certain level, albeit maybe at a smaller one, but the visa policy must continue. We have to bring talent into the organization. [Unemployed U.S. IT workers] may not have the right skills. They may not have the mobility. When push comes to shove, they're not going to move to Des Moines. Someone from India might say, "I'm an SAP programmer; I'll move to Des Moines."

As international test scores indicate, America's children are the recipients of an increasingly rotten education.

In 1991, our 41st president, George H.W. Bush, signed the World Conference of Education for All treaty. What that particular bit of international do-goodism did was to subject education in the U.S. to monitoring by an international body.

To government, homeschooling resembles a weed that spreads and resists control. To homeschooling parents, it is the flowering of knowledge and values within children who have been abandoned or betrayed by public schools.

A great tension exists between the two perspectives. Homeschooling's continued growth has only heightened it. The federal government has reacted by attempting to increase its control over homeschooling, for example, by pushing for increased regulation of homeschool curricula. But the federal government is hindered by certain factors. For one thing, education is generally the prerogative of individual states. Nevertheless, the federal government can often impose its will by threatening to withhold federal funds from states that do not comply with its measures. But homeschooling parents cannot be threatened by a withdrawal of money they don't receive...
