President Donald Trump will appear at a political rally for India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Houston, Texas, amid the growing push by business lobbies to raise the inflow of H-1B visa workers from India.
The event is billed as, “a community summit in honor of the Prime Minister of India.” The event is dominated by Hindu organizers and leaders, partly because Modi leads a Hindu political party.
Business groups strongly support the H-4EAD program because it helps many Indian H-1B workers persuade their spouses to stay in the United States for the many years it takes them to get a green card.
Women gained 3.3 percent in wages, to bring their median salaries to $45,097 for full time, year-round work.
The Texas India Forum is excited to welcome President Donald J. Trump to address over 50,000 Americans as we host Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India in Houston on September 22 at NRG Stadium.

Immigration has frozen middle-class wages in California for 40 years. That's part of why any debate over immigration economics is taboo among journalists in the establishment media. https://t.co/LJ7xMtV9Pb
