They are complaining because someone decided to enforce the law. H-1B visas are intended to be a way to bring in highly skilled, international caliber workers; think Torvalds and van Rossum as examples. It is not to bring in low paid mediocrities from elsewhere (the precise country does not matter). The complaint they can not find US workers is disingenuous considering the way they treat workers, particularly older workers. They are reaping the whirlwind of the wind they sowed. Other industries and companies believe their employees are valuable. Some companies even have metrics about their retention rate and worry what they are doing wrong if the rate slips; mine does. So my question to the scum, why should anyone work for their companies when you are going to be badly treated?
