The leftist media said for years that the H1b program wouldn’t displace American workers. Now that the data shows the massive devastating impact that the H1b program has actually had on American tech workers, the left and the globalists have again “changed the narrative” and try to claim that American workers are far too stupid, too “entitled”, too drugged out to work, too uneducated or too unreliable to do those jobs.
The media, and pro-immigrant Companies attempt to maintain this fiction even in the face of studies showing that only about a third of H1b programmers can actually write code, and in spite of the well known problem of the fraudulent nature of foreign education credentials.
More than 2.6 million H-1B foreign guest worker visas have been approved by the U.S. federal government over the last decade, new data from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reveals.
Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa. Most recently, that number ballooned to potentially hundreds of thousands each year, as universities and non-profits are exempt from the cap. With more entering the U.S. through the visa, American workers are often fired and forced to train their foreign replacement.
The USCIS data shows that between 2007 and 2017, the H-1B visa, which imports foreign workers to take American jobs, the program has grown exponentially. The vast majority of visa-holders are from India.
In the last decade, U.S. companies tried to outsource nearly 3.5 million American jobs to foreign workers through the H-1B visa. Of those, officials in the U.S. government approved 2.63 million applications for foreign workers to come to this country.

All of which ultimately indicates the truth , that H1b workers, just as all people tricked into indentured servitude schemes throughout history, will work for slave wages and are far less troublesome than domestic workers because H1b workers must always fear deportation.
