Immigration Nerds Talk to Professor Ron Hira in an H-1B Debate

In this week’s Immigration Nerds podcast, we talk to Ron Hira, a Howard University professor and co-author of “Reforming US High Skilled Guestworker Program” which was published in the Atlantic Council. Erickson Immigration Group attorneys Justin Parsons and Hiba Anver discuss the H-1B program with Professor Hira and his critique that it inherently exploits immigrant workers for cheaper labor dispossessing qualified US workers. Both parties agree there should be a system that finds the best and brightest talent while not overlooking American workers or under compensating immigrants. This conversation confronts the terms of where that line should lie.
