India Urges US Balance on H-1B Visas. 

India Urges US Balance on H-1B Visas This month, the Indian External Affairs Minister and the US Secretary of State issued a joint statement in support of the benefits that the H-1B people-to-people program has provided to both countries and the broader world. The H-1B program has recently been subject to criticism by the American president, including claims that H-1B dependent employers have abused the program and neglected to provide American workers with equal opportunity. The statement notes a departure from the prior criticism and a new direction for the nations’ shared “2+2 Dialogue.”
