There's certainly a feeling out there that [offshore programming is] a threat to American IT workers.

At an outsourcing conference this week, panelists said American IT workers displaced by H-1B and L-1 employees should look to become IT liaisons with corporate business units.

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.

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."

Numbers difficult to track; impact of visas debated

Unemployed IT workers and their allies say there's no labor shortage. They claim that employers are just trying to cut IT costs and drive down wages by hiring foreign workers at lower pay rates.

In recent years, there has been renewed interest in the proper use and possible abuse of executive orders and other presidential directives.

Many citizens and lawmakers expressed concern over the content and scope of several of President Bill Clinton's executive orders and land proclamations. Congress responded with hearings and the consideration of several bills designed to curb the President's authority to issue such directives. In an exceedingly rare act, the courts reacted by striking down one of President Clinton's executive orders, and litigation to contest the validity of other directives is ongoing. Despite the increased public attention focused on executive orders and similar directives, public understanding regarding the Legal foundation and proper uses of such presidential decrees is limited.

Susette Kelo dreamed of owning a home that looked out over the water.

She purchased and lovingly restored her little pink house where the Thames River meets the Long Island Sound in 1997, and had enjoyed the great view from its windows. The Dery family, up the street from Susette, had lived in Fort Trumbull since 1895; Matt Dery and his family lived next door to his mother and father. Matt's mother was born in her house in 1918 and had never lived anywhere else. The richness and vibrancy of this neighborhood reflected the American ideal of community and the dream of homeownership. Tragically, the City of New London turned that dream into a nightmare.
