Re: Good for competition?

Not nonsense, and this is precisely the point. H1-Bs are officially designated "non-immigrant". But in practice, they have *ALWAYS* been used as a deliberate immigration route. How do I know? Because I and many friends used it for exactly this. We had no intention of leaving the states after the H1-B expired. In practice, everyone who applies for an H1-B sees it as a foot in the door which will eventually result in a green-card.
