This is quiet an old clip (but it never gets old) of Dr. Michio Kaku just beating the breaks off some cocky dude – conversationally of course – about America’s H1B Visa (genius) system. These types of Visas (used by foreign immigrants to work in the US) may not be known to the wider American population, but it allows the country to continue running the world.
From Wernher Von Braun, Elon Musk, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, etc. – America is powered by smart immigrants. Every president since Theodore Roosevelt has known and encouraged it.
For years some, if not all of the country’s innovations and industries were pioneered by immigrants. No Steve Jobs, no iphones. More than 50% of the country’s PHD students are foreign born.
What is the H1B Visa, America’s secret weapon?
America’s H1B visa is a highly sought-after visa that is often viewed as a “golden ticket” to the United States. It is a non-immigrant visa that allows U.S. employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations.
The visa is most often granted to individuals with a college degree and/or specialized knowledge in a certain field. The H1B visa program allows individuals to work and live in the United States for up to three years, with the option for an extension for another three years.
It also allows visa holders to bring their families to the U.S. to live with them. The H1B visa is a valuable asset to those looking to gain access to the United States, particularly those looking to pursue educational and career opportunities.
