United States Department of Home Land Security
The United States of Home Land Security is a cabinet department of the United States federal government with responsibilities in public security roughly comparable to the interior or home ministry of other countries.
H1B visa program was intended to serve employers who could not find the skilled workers. They needed in the United States.
Most people believe that employers are supposed to recruit Americans before they petition for an H1-B worker. Yet, under the law, most employers are not required to prove to the department of labour that they tried to find an American to fill the job first .
