MORE GOVERNMENT INEPTITUDE
This is mildly stupid; if the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency is serious about dispensing visas to skilled professionals, they may want to start by fixing their broken Web pages.
I was reading the Arizona Daily Star’s series on legal immigration and then found this story with Microsoft founder Bill Gates where he argues that the minimal number of skilled worker visas is leading to job outsourcing because the tech companies can’t find enough qualified employees in the U.S. (Hang on, the stupid part’s coming.)
Then a reader, Will Coley, sent me a Youtube video he made that shows the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services as an outdated, inept agency that is hopelessly behind the times. I actually thought the video was pretty immature and I was getting ready to tell its creator exactly what I thought of it.
But first, I threw the H-1b visa into Google to pull out a number I was looking for, and the first link that came up was Citizenship and Immigration Services’ to its H-1b information sheet, you know; the “how do I apply for an H-1b?” page. And this is what it said:
404 - Requested Page Not Found on Site
Perhaps the Homeland Security Department should hire some foreign workers to show them how to update their goddamned Web site.
So, my commendation to Coley; it seems your video was accurate after all.
