Reforming the H-1B Visa System:
A Conversation with Congressman Darrell Issa


Moderated by:
Dr. Bharath Gopalaswamy 
Director, South Asia Center
Atlantic Council 
 
 
A discussion with:
Congressman Darrell Issa 
Chairman of the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet
US House of Representatives
 
Critics contend that systemic weaknesses in the H-1B program allow companies to import cheap foreign labor at the expense of American workers. As the primary recipients of H-1B visas, skilled Indian workers would be most significantly impacted by changes to the program.

Please join the Atlantic Council for a conversation to discuss the current status of the H-1B program and ways in which it may be strengthened. In a discussion introduced and moderated by Dr. Bharath Gopalaswamy, Director of the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center, Congressman Darrell Issa will address the reintroduction of his bill to reform the H-1B visa system.
