The H1-B visa system – the country’s largest guestworker visa program, involving several hundred thousand high skilled workers – has been a controversy ever since it was introduced over 30 years ago. Examining the dilemmas created by the H1 program and the prospects for reforming it, this panel features Hiroshi Motomura, Professor, UCLA School of Law; Sabrina Balgamwalla, Professor, Wayne State School of Law, and Jiteshwar Attri, a UCLA undergraduate who will discuss his experience as a dependent of an H1-B worker, residing in the United States on an H-4 visa.
