Based on what I learned in my I-Search essay and based on everything in the news about immigrants taking US jobs away. I wanted to do research on immigration in flow and see if there is a correlation of the amount of H1 visas allowed and the unemployment rate in the U.S. In certain media and in some people’s views, they believe that if there was no immigration in the U.S. then unemployment would be zero percent. But while doing research on how to legally immigrate into the U.S., I got out that most people entering into the U.S. for a job offer is not to work at a McDonalds or normal day office jobs but they must be highly skilled and specialized in certain areas of your field that are considered to be rare. What I’m trying to say is that most H1 visa granted are because they are unavailable in the states so are required to be found outside of the country. Usually how it works is that the specialized areas require a second master’s degrees in their field. I want to debunk this false truth about immigration.
