The Senator of the Republican Party in the US from Utah Orrin Hatch has said that it is important for everyone in the US to appreciate that H-1-B visas have contributed greatly to the US. On the other hand, he also accepted that a lot of misconceptions about this visa program are prevailing in the US. H1-B visas are the most sought after by the IT professionals from India.
A long-standing advocate of reforms to the H1-B visa program, Orrin Hatch was speaking at the weekly hearing of the US Congress, as quoted by the Indian Express. Elaborating further on the issue, Hatch said that much untrue information is prevalent in the US regarding the effect and intent of the H1-B visa program.
The Republican senator from Utah expressed these views on the occasion of the hearing in the US Congress for confirming the position of the Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services to Lee Francis Cissna. Orrin Hatch added that he was a proponent of reforming the H1-B visa from a long time and the visa program must be updated to ensure that the demand for highly skilled workers in the US is catered to.
The author of the Immigration Innovation Act, Hatch also said that he is working on tabling the act once again in the US Congress shortly.
The Senator of the Republican Party asked Cissna to commit for working in collaboration with him to ensure making it easy for firms in the US to hire the much needed and highly skilled workers and prevent the misuse of the program. Cissna replied by saying that he is absolutely committed to working in that direction.
