Talking about the abuse of the US tourist visa, a top senator of America alleged Indian companies of misusing the tourist visa to import foreign workers into the United States.
In the letter to the US Attorney General Loretta E Lynch, the top senator Chuck Grassley asked "Given the problem such fraud and abuse in the B visa programme poses for American workers as well as the foreign workers who are mistreated and underpaid, I request that the departments respond to the concerns,"
"The manner in which the B visa programme is being used and the absence of real oversight and enforcement is a shame. Despite a long and undeniable history of abuse of the programme to bring foreign workers into the United States under cover as 'business visitors,' regulations and field governance governing the programme have not been updated in years," Grassley said in the letter.
The Senator sent letters to secretaries of the departments of a state including the Home department asking for more information on the types of visas granted to the foreign nationals.
He demanded legal justification on the B visa holders which allows the state departments to invite foreign workers similar to that of H-1B visa.
The B-Visa holders are not granted equal protections by the employers, whereas H-1B is more protective and gives great freedom to visa holders.
